Villa Saint-Veran is an old aristocratic villa, which was once an olive farm, before being converted into a residential villa in the 18th century. After being in the family for the past 100 years, it has been brought back to life in a recent refurbishment, which lasted two years, giving it back its original character and elegance, whilst providing modern comforts.

This impressive villa sits in a private and quiet area on a hilltop, on the edge of a village with its medieval castle, and offers panoramic views of the Saint-Veran Forest, the Alps and the sea.

Within walking distance through country lanes is old Villeneuve-Loubet, a charming and typical Provencal village between Monaco and Nice, overlooking the hills of Saint-Paul-de-Vence and Grasse, and boasting nearly 4 km of coastline. Guests can stroll down for morning coffee and bread or a meal in one of the restaurants. A little further is seaside Villeneuve-Loubet, with its lively centre and beach.

Villa Saint-Veran is surrounded by two hectares of lush Mediterranean parkland and landscaped gardens, featuring numerous terraces, centennial olive trees and cypresses, eucalyptus, palm trees and oleanders leading up to a woodland. Indoors high ceilings, French doors, fireplaces and terracotta floors sit alongside state-of-the-art air-conditioning and fully renovated bathrooms and kitchen.

The Côte d’Azur in its all its glory is on the doorstep; 15 minutes from Nice Airport, 30 minutes from the sea, 5 minutes from Saint-Paul-de-Vence and Cannes, Monaco and Grasse all under half an hour away.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • There is air-conditioning in the bedrooms and the living-dining room
  • The village with its bakery, butcher, grocery store, bar and restaurants is a 15-minute walk downhill, so naturally it’s uphill on the return! Please note that some of the journey is via unpaved country lanes.
  • The beach and seaside town are only a 15-minute drive away (or a 30-minute walk downhill from the villa, so again uphill on the return)

Villa Saint-Veran is strategically situated between Nice and Cannes, in the outskirts of Villeneuve-Loubet village. A 15-mins stroll downhill via country lanes takes you to this traditional village dotted with little flowered streets, where you can find a bakery, butcher, grocery store, bar and restaurants. From the hillside of the house, you can also enjoy a 1.5km long walk (approximately 30 minutes) bordering the banks of the Loup River and crossing the lush Mediterranean forest of the Saint Veran hill, leading all the way to the beach at seaside Villeneuve-Loubet. Furthermore, this is also a family friendly destination with two theme parks and recreational areas offering countless possibilities for a variety of outdoor activities and water sports.

The well-known Polygone Riviera is just a 15-minute walk away: it is the first open air shopping center in Europe with countless shops, restaurants, bars, cinema and casino. The closest town is Cagnes-sur-mer.

The characteristic Provençal villages of the Pays Vençois are very close by as are the Gorges du Loup, the waterfalls in Courmes, Demoiselles and Saut du Loupe and the Baou de Saint-Jeannet (807 m) mountain overlooking the coast of the Cote d'Azur, ideal for climbing lovers.

The bustling towns of Vence and St-Paul de Vence, known worldwide for their  artistic and cultural activities (Fondation Maeght and other prestigious galleries of the Cercle des Artistes), are just about 6km away.

The artistic town of Grasse (22km), also called the “Capital of Flowers and Perfume" and offering splendid vistas over the shores near Cannes, is a further recommended place to visit.

On the coast, don't miss the Greek-Roman maritime city of Antibes-Juan-les-Pins (12km), the chic Mediterranean yachting harbour and sandy beaches in Cap d'Antibes and the effervescence of Juan-les-Pins. Likewise, we recommend visiting the charming city of Antibes which has delighted many visitors, from Picasso to Nicolas de Staël, from Sidney Bechet to Miles Davis, between fisherman's districts, yachtsmen's wharves, Provençal market, pine groves hosting jazz concerts.

Inland, are the villages, of Biot (famous for its glasswork and master glassmakers) and Valbonne, models for a certain art of living, artistic creativity, architectural charm.

Beautiful Nice (14km) is just a short drive away (or train from Cagnes-sur-Mer) where you can explore the maze of narrow streets in the old town and discover the amazing market. A little further in Villefranche-sur-Mer (21km) you can walk up to the stunning Saint Jean Cap Ferrat peninsula, an unmissable day out.

The chic and dazzling city of Cannes (23km), where famous festivals and great events take place throughout the year, is also must-to-see destination in the area. Spend the day on the beach, admire the beautiful La Croisette and take a boat to the Isles of Lérins. These islands are considered among the most splendid natural heritage sites of the French Riviera. In the Ile de Ste-Marguerite,one can visit the Royal Fort, the Musée de la Mer and take a stroll across its beautiful pine and eucalyptus forest. The equally stunning Ile St-Honorat belongs to a community of Cistercian monks and offers a fortified monastery and abbey.

The whole region stands out for its stunning natural assets, with limestone mountains, vast natural parks, streams and superb golf courses.

It goes without saying that Villa Saint-Veran is an excellent choice to stay on the French Riviera, offering a quick and easy access to the different activities and interests of the beautiful Alpes-Maritimes department.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
100 years in the family, current owner since 2015

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
We have been very lucky to pass the house down from generation to generation for nearly one century. The property has kept its original and unique character within the years and is one of the only house benefiting from a 2 hectares park in this specific region.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

The property entered into the family 100 years ago. In the 20’s, its owners Mr and Mme Bertaud used to have famous artists visiting them at Domaine des Lions. Mr Bertaud being at renowned writer he invited his writer’s friends, actors and artists. The famous painter Henri Gervex, Mme Bertaud’s uncle, also spent some time at the villa. The current owners, Yann and Adélaïde Bertrand own the property since 2015. It took them two years to fully renovate the villa, adapting it to the modern standards though retaining its original character and elegance.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Canyoning in arrière pays.
Really eat?
Tropezienne tart.
Really see?
Saint Paul de Vence, Iles de Lerins.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Staying at Domaine des Lions you will feel far from the modern civilisation, surrounded by a verdant park, olive and palm trees, laurel and fruits trees, garden terraces, forest leading to the beach but you will be only 10 minutes away from the city of Nice, and walking distance to the beach, to the old village of Villeneuve-Loubet and to the Polygone Riviera the first open air shopping centre in Europe which mix fashion and premium shopping, restaurants, bars, cinema and casino



  • Wonderful property!

    on 12/08/2023

    Villa Saint-Veran is a wonderful property. We were looking for a warm and welcoming house to rent for a large family gathering that included a new born baby, young children, teenagers, parents and grandparents - Villa Saint-Veran was a perfect setting. The main house was beautiful with excellent space and facilities for 14 people. The pool house and swimming pool provided wonderful settings for all of us to hang out, have fun and eat dinner. Adelaide was delightful to work with. The location provides an excellent base camp from which to explore the many local attractions like Monaco, Nice, Antibes and Cannes. We left with wonderful memories and we would highly recommend Villa Saint-Veran for anyone looking for a high quality, family friendly home in the Côte d’Azur.

  • Stunning Villa in a superb location

    on 01/07/2023

    We had an absolutely wonderful time at Villa Saint-Veran! There was plenty of room for the twelve of us, and the house was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. The pool and grounds are truly spectacular. The owners were gracious and helpful, and the house has an excellent handbook with recommendations on everything from hiking trails to restaurants.
    Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience! It had been many years since we had visited the Côte d’Azur, and we could not have hoped for a more relaxing and enjoyable week.

  • Mom's birthday celebration

    on 25/09/2022

    Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed the villa. Perfect for a large family. Close to everything. Thierry, the manager on site was amazing. We had a wonderful time, can’t recommend enough.

  • Wonderful stay

    on 12/07/2022

    We had a wonderful stay at Villa Saint-Veran which certainly lived up to expectations. Beautiful and spacious with a superb pool house, it provided for all our needs and more. Thierry and Cecile were attentive, making sure we had all we needed and provided a beautiful breakfast for us all on the first day. We can’t recommend this property highly enough. The difference was in the fact that it was a loved family home. We feel privileged to have visited. Thank you.

  • Amazing Villa

    on 05/07/2022

    Everything about our experience was awesome. The villa is wonderful - especially the pool area. The location is great for exploring the area. The property managers are very nice and helpful. Highly recommend it!

  • It is a very special place

    on 29/06/2022

    It is a very special place, and it was a perfect venue for us to spend four weeks connecting with some of our friends and family. We enjoyed the solitude, the grounds, the design, the sense of history, the art, and of course the pool!
    We wish we will come back soon!

  • Epic stay at Villa Saint-Veran

    on 26/06/2022

    Words cannot describe how beautiful and amazing this villa is. Every room was BEAUTIFULLY decorated, CLEAN, and all essentials available. Everyone in our group was in awe during check-in. There are seven bedrooms with seven full bathrooms (5 with showers and 2 with bathtubs with handheld showers). There’s a hallway powder room and a full bathroom and changing room in the pool house too! Some bedrooms can be configured into two twin beds or put together into one king bed. Each room has A/C that is controlled by remote. The kitchen is fully stocked with essentials, as is the laundry room. The pool and pool house are large and immaculate with essentials for outdoor entertaining. You can relax out there all day on the numerous lounge chairs and outdoor furnishings. The grounds are well maintained and spacious. Everyone can spread out and have their own private space. The very nice caretakers live next door and are always available to provide assistance, especially since our group of 14 did not have cars. The house is situated on a hill. A 10 min walk downhill is the closest bus stop—Le Tunnel and bus #400 and #500 will take you to Cagnes sur mer train station each day at 30 minute intervals. From there you can go to other villages along the coast. Purchase a weekly ZOU HEBDO unlimited use train ticket from Cannes to Vintimille for 38€ at the train ticket office and you are good to go. There’s also a Casino supermarket and a big outdoor shopping mall 15 minute walk downhill to get essentials. The quaint Villeneuve Loubet village with restaurants and bakeries is a 15 minute walk downhill in the other direction. This place is really impressive! We wish we could stay here every summer. Merci once again for making our vacances so memorable. Bisous!

  • Simply Fabulous

    on 20/06/2022

    What can we say about our stay? From the moment we arrived we were amazed. The Villa was immaculate, the beds, super comfy and we wanted for nothing. The hosts were on hand to help with anything we needed. We were so grateful to them, as one of our son’s tripped on walk and needed hospital treatment, they helped us sort this out. The Grandchildren, Great Grandparent’s, all had the best time. Something for everyone. For sure, we will be back! One week wasn’t enough.

  • AMAZING week

    on 26/05/2022

    We had an absolutely AMAZING week at Villa Saint-Veran and appreciate all the attention to detail as well as the authenticity of the villa. It was truly the perfect spot for a family reunion.
    Many thanks for sharing this home with us. We hope to return soon!!

  • You won't be disappointed!

    on 11/08/2020

    Absolutely loved this villa, the beautiful grounds and pool/pool house, setting and views, full of fin de siecle charm but super well modernised and very comfortable. Able to escape the hustle of the Côte d’Azur in this tranquil oasis whilst minutes away from the action, motorway connections etc. The village of Villeneuve-Loubet is charming and the chateau well worth a visit. The housekeepers were charming and helpful. I would highly recommend Villa Saint-Veran to either families or a group of adult couples. You won’t be disappointed.
