                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: As a surveyor I always wanted to build a striking modern timber highly insulated ecological villa and we had this opportunity in 2010 incorporating many ideas such as heat exchangers which provide low cost heating in the Winter and air conditioning in the Summer,as well as hot water,and a rain water recuperation underground tank. We have known this area for over 20 years and we were lucky enough to find this stunning hillside location which has panoramic views from all the rooms from Cap D'Antibes to the bay of Cannes. We wanted to create a villa that gives our holidaymakers an exceptional experience which is in a bit of paradise between heaven and earth.Our recent reviews show we have been successful in achieving this.

                      Why the Owner Chose Magagnosc:
                      We have had experiences of staying in holiday villas which were tired,poorly furnished and we were determined to create a high quality villa and furnishings but at the same time offering good value for money.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Whether you like country or town ,quiet or busy the location offers you both with the lower Alps behind us offering fantastic walks,hilltop villages,country markets,and amazing views.The alternative is avaible as within 30 minutes you have the whole of the Cote D'Azure coast to play with from Italian influenced Menton known for its citrus fruits,glitzy Monaco,cosmopolitan Nice,Old Antibes with market and busy port,fun loving Juan les Pins,and buzzing Cannes famous for the film festival.
