INTRODUCTION

The villa is very well located in the exclusive Le Castellet domaine on the hillside overlooking Villefranche sur Mer. It is a short walk from a small shopping area with mini supermarket, bakery and cafe serving very good meals. Access to the villa is just off the Moyenne Corniche which runs between Nice and Monte Carlo, and the villa is just a short drive from the town centre of Nice, the picturesque port of Villefranche and the glamour capital of the world, Monaco. The port, the Citadelle, the Old Town, and the gentle curve of the coast all contribute to the beauty of Villefranche sur Mer which dates back to 130 BC.

The port, the Citadelle, the Old Town, and the gentle curve of the coast all contribute to the beauty of Villefranche sur Mer which dates back to 130 BC. With its colourful fishing boats and nets, the port is both a base for fishermen and tourists, offering numerous cruises in the summer. You can wander along the fishing wharves, bordered by restaurants and their terraces. If you continue until the end you will arrive at the lengthy Villefranche beach which is pleasant from the very first days of summer. The old village shelters narrow roads and stair-ways with the most evocative names : rue Obscure, rue du Poilu. Covered passages lead down to the coloured facades of the ancient houses which have been carefully renovated. With their windows wide open at the height of summer you can hear snatches of lively conversation and smell the mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine from within.

Every home should have one

When you are on holiday you want a stress free time so your own personal concierge provides that little bit of extra luxury. Whether it be recommending and booking local restaurants before you get to your villa, making sure that your arrival is smooth organizing airport transfers and a rental car delivered to you and that the fridges are full or advising on day trips, sightseeing, shopping and beaches then your concierge is there to help.

To cook or not to cook?

For some people leisurely trawling of local food markets and then cooking at home is an ideal part of the holiday and our experts can advise the best places to go. If however you never want to see a food shop or market then we can organize fresh food deliveries for your arrival and during your stay, pre cooked meal deliveries or, the ultimate indulgence is your own private chef or cook as well as a waiter or butler and we have a selection of some of the best.

All at sea

Sometimes just gazing at the water isn’t enough. For the active we can help to organize water skiing, wake boarding, kite surfing snorkeling and diving or for those wishing to relax on a boat we can organize day charters of motor yachts or sail boats for exploring or simply people watching.

Keeping up appearances

In most destinations we can organise the ultimate in pampering. Perhaps a beautician for that essential pedicure, or hairdresser for a blow dry before that special dinner. We have excellent proven service providers or we can even get them to come to your villa, perhaps even a relaxing massage by the pool. If fitness is your thing then we know the best local gyms, yoga and Pilates classes or we can organise private instructors to visit your villa.
