A fabulous villa with a view which is hard to beat
A fabulous villa with a view which is hard to beat
Villa Ogilvie is particularly special! Having stayed in several rental villas in the South of France, the owners have an eye for detail which makes this villa the best we have ever rented. The villa is arranged over two floors. There is a well appointed sitting room (with dining table is the weather is inclement) which opens onto the terrace with a large outdoor dining table and BBQ (with chimney) and the pool area. Next to this is a well equipped kitchen (with all essential kitchen appliances) and plenty of good quality crockery and cooking utensils (often so lacking in rental properties). Also on this level is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. This also opens onto the terrace offering fabulous views over the Bay of Cannes and the Iles de Lerins. One of my most memorable mornings was waking (accidentally!) at 6am and seeing the amazing sunrise over the islands with fabulous warm light streaming across the glistening Med! On the lower level are three more bedrooms (one double, two twins) all with en-suites (one has a bath) and a laundry room. There is an independent self-contained flatlet on the lower level (with independent TV, kitchen and bathroom) which is ideal should anyone bring the nanny (or the mother-in-law!). The pool is well appointed with a great view. For me, it was a perfect size for cooling off and playing with kids. There is a closable gate to keep young children out of the area if adults are not supervising. There are plenty of sun loungers on both levels as well as outdoor seating areas for those who are not sun-lovers. There is off road parking (although the drive is steep and it is best to reverse down). The property is only a short drive from Theoule-sur-Mer (about 5 mins) where there is an excellent selection of shops - boulangerie (2), a Spar and Casino supermarket, post office, cash point and of course excellent local restaurants. A superb Casino hypermarket can be found 15 min drive away at La Napoule, La Trayas is only 5 mins west on the road to Agay passing the fabulous Esterel mountains. The area is, of course, a gastronomic delight. Michelin starred restaurants abound for the nights that you don't fancy a BBQ! It is only a 20min drive to Cannes and 45min to Nice Airport. St Tropez can be reached by boat from Cannes in 1.5 hours (car same time) and there are numerous ways of getting to the islands. This villa has everything to make you holiday perfect - great location, high quality - home from home!

Owner response: I am grateful to the reviewer for this unsolicited testimonial. I can assure all prospective future renters of our property that the high standards of our property are continuously and rigorously maintained. They will love it!
We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of August and loved it. We were a mixed party of children, teenagers adults and an Oap. The Villa is absolutly charming, and has everything you could need. The views are to die for and the weather was amazing. To sum it up we all had a fabulous holiday and have been dreaming of our little piece of heaven ever since.

Brilliant location, great accommodation, breath-taking views and the sun shone! The information provided was spot-on and the owner couldn't have been more helpful! All five adults and three children wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

Stunning Views and High Quality Furnishings
Having stayed a few times in this area, this Villa has the best views by far. After a very long drive, within an hour of arriving we were on the terrace with the children happily in the pool, totally relaxed. There are two terraces, but we lived on the top one, excpet when we all played table tennis. The layout is excellent - with the kitchen and lounge all leading on to the terrace, and the pool on the same level. We only cooked on the BBQ which was easy, and there is plenty of good quality matching crockery and glasses, which can be unusual in rental properties. Everything you might have wanted was there. The pool and terrance lose the sun at about 5ish which was a shame for the pool area, but did mean that the terrace and bedrooms were never too hot, and we always slept well, and never had that low late sun to deal with. All the linen and towels and bath towels are very high quality, and useful to have SKY to keep up with the news! As mentioned in other reviews the drive is very steep, and ensure that you reverse down with care. Although the villa is on a main road do not be worried as there is little traffice noise, and the terrace is on the other side of the house. Theoule sur Mer does get busy unless you get there early or late evening which suited us better with young children. Cannes only a 20 min drive away and a huge hypermarket at La Napoule where you can get everything. We rarely ventured out as it was far more relaxing to stay at the villa. Take binoclulars so you can see the huge super yachts better!! A very relaxing holiday in a very special villa.

That Riviera Touch
That Riviera Touch
Villa Ogilvie was a fantastic find just along the coast from Theole-sur-Mer and @ 20 mins from Cannes.Far away enough from late night revellers to enable us to enjoy a perfect late night bottle of wine on the balcony, crickets, pines and moonlight reflected off the panoramic Med, but close enough to nip into one of the local boulangeries and be back before anyone else was out of bed. The villla is spacious and set over 2 levels both with large balconies.We tended to use upstairs while the kids used the lower larger balcony for running around, hide and seek, table tennis,etc.If they came upstairs, especially for TV (English satellite system), we just switched.We were two families sharing but there are plenty of different areas around the balconies and garden to relax and read so there was always a niche with a lounger away from everyone else, esp the kids! All the bedrooms are well appointed, en suite, and feel very spacious - an extra wardrobe in the kids room without the built-in cupboard might have been helpful and there was certainly enough room.Our friends brought their nanny.She had her own self-contained bedsit so she was very much in her own space that suited her and us -could have been a 5th bedroom. The pool was a bit small for pounding lengths but was perfect for us, the 4 kids and even 4 more of their friends who came to play one day.There are loungers around the pool and it has its own shower. For me the outstanding feature was the BBQ and table (seats 12 comfortably) on the upper terrace right outside the kitchen.The built in BBQ was part of the outside of the house with a proper chimney that meant there was none of the usual drifting smoke and fumes.Eating out and entertaining was just heaven with the twinkling sea and balmy starlit sky.The view from the balconies was staggering as can no doubt be seen from the website - 160 degrees of blue paradise. Practically, there is an hotel 100 metres away with restaurant and bar/cafe waterfront with loungers -there is a charge for this area.Theole and Miramar are less than 4 miles away.The A8 autoroute@ 15 mins, Nice Airport @ 40mins.As well as St Tropez, Juan-les-Pins and Nice nearby, there are also the beautiful inland villages of Mougins and Vallauris - far less touristy and well worth a visit/lunch. This is a very special villa, loads of space in a wondeful peaceful location - unusual for this part of the Riviera.I would heartily recommend it and feel it is very good value for the money.

UNA CASA DA SOGNO!!!
UNA CASA DA SOGNO!!!
Villa Ogilvie è stupenda!! Ho soggiornato dal 22 al 29 settembre, con la mia famiglia, in occasione del mio compleanno ed è stata per tutti una bellissima esperienza! La casa è meravigliosa situata in una posizione privilegiata e dalle terrazze della villa si gode una vista mozzafiato sulla baia di Cannes! La villa è molto grande, pulita, arredata con gusto e la cucina è attrezzatissima con stoviglie di qualità, non manca niente per trascorrere una splendida vacanza! Le foto del sito sono molto belle e rendono l’idea del grande fascino della casa ma all’arrivo, in una splendida giornata settembrina, abbiamo pensato che la casa fosse ancor meglio delle nostre aspettative! Theoule sur Mer è un ottimo punto di partenza per visitare i paesi all’interno e lungo la costa e Villa Ogilvie con il suo fascino è il graditissimo premio al ritorno dalle escursioni! La piscina è a picco sul mare ed è molto sicura, essendo completamente recintata, per chi dovesse soggiornare anche con bambini piccoli; le scale d’accesso alla casa sono comode anche per persone in età; gli ampi spazi esterni sono attrezzatissimi sia per chi ama il sole che l’ombra non manca davvero niente per rilassarsi! Mi piacerebbe tanto tornarci per rivivere la bellissima atmosfera e godermi nuovamente albe e tramonti spettacolari magari questa volta senza avventurarmi troppo fuori, in compagnia di qualche bel libro, per assaporare appieno la pace che trasmette questo luogo bellissimo … Consiglierei proprio a tutti un soggiorno di almeno una settimana!! Thanks for the great patience!!!!
