Property description

If you are seeking a charming home with character in a quiet location with wonderful views yet close to a beautiful village and all the sites and sounds of the Riviera, then Jasmin Villa could be the perfect choice for you!

About the location: Our much-loved holiday home is situated in an exclusive, gated, hilltop domaine of private one bedroom and two bedroom residences. It was formerly a hotel and in it's hey day competed with the Columbe D'Or! It is located in a prime but quiet semi-rural position on the Cote D’Azur between Nice & Antibes yet only 10 minutes drive from the airport and just 15-20 minutes walk to the stunning medieval village of St Paul de Vence. Domaine du Piol has a lot of history and character and enjoys an elevated position surrounded by woodland with views over the valley below. There is a large, shared pool which gets the sun all day. It is just around the corner from the villa but out of sight. The location of the villa is private, quiet and secure. There is only one other villa adjoining it and a small apartment out of sight, beside the pool.

About the property (outside) : Jasmin villa has a small private garden of jasmin (French spelling), lemon trees and flowers. A private balcony and upper terrace offer unsurpassed views up to the village of St Paul and the mountains behind. There is plenty of outside space ideal for enjoying a meal, sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. Both the terrace and garden are paved and have wrought iron tables and chairs. The location of the villa is private and quiet. There is only one other villa adjoining it and a small apartment out of sight, beside the pool.

About the property (inside): Jasmin villa has been lovingly re-furbished in a Provençal/'shabby chic' style with unique and charming pieces all sourced locally from brocantes and antique shops. There is a spacious living/dining room with a large sofa, 2 chairs and a dining table with 4 chairs. For your entertainment there is a flat screen TV (television is currently only available through Apple TV or the internet using the 'Film On' app so you need a laptop/ipad or smart phone to access television). There is a DVD player, a selection of DVD's and books. Wifi is provided. French doors lead out onto the garden beyond. A small separate kitchen is well equipped with a large fridge/freezer (with water cooler), dishwasher, oven and ceramic hob and microwave. We know many of our guests enjoy cooking so we provide a wide range of pots, pans, dishes and cooking utensils. We keep a supply of tea, coffee, condiments, aluminium foil, cling film and paper towels for guest convenience. There is a small casual eating area. There is also a downstairs WC with wash-hand basin and a washing machine and a hallway with a writing desk. An iron, ironing board, clothes horse, vacuum cleaner and cleaning materials are provided. The staircase (fitted with a handrail) leads upstairs to two double bedrooms, one with a balcony and the other with a large terrace with views up to St Paul. One bedroom has a king size bed, fitted wardrobe with built in shelves, the other two twin single beds and a large authentic French armoire. There are mirrors in both rooms. Additional pillows and blankets are available if required. We provide free-standing fans for the heat in summer and wall fitted electric heaters for the winter. There is a fully-tiled bathroom with bath and shower head, a separate walk-in shower and an electric towel rail. A hairdryer is provided.

We want you to thoroughly enjoy your stay so we have tried to think of everything so you will be as comfortable as possible. If there is anything we can organise in advance of your stay it would be our pleasure to do that for you. Our concierge can also organise 'meet and greet', shopping, taxi services. cleaning/laundry changes and baby sitting if required. A comprehensive information pack includes lots of recommendations for your stay.

Car: Recommended

Location: Jasmin Villa enjoys a semi-rural location with stunning mountain and village views. It is ideally situated as a base for visiting the French Riviera and exploring the seaside resorts of Nice, Antibes, Cannes and St. Tropez as well as the historic mountain villages nearby. The most famous, St. Paul de Vence is within easy walking distance (15-20 mins approximately). This medieval village with its ramparts and cobbled streets, described as the most beautiful village in France, was once the home of many famous artists such as Chagal, Renoir & Mastisse and its association with art is still seen today with its magnificent art shops and galleries. The world class museum Fondation Maeght and renowned restaurant Le Colombe D'Or are both within walking distance. Monte Carlo is half an hour's drive, with the Italian border and Southern Alps both just 40 minutes away. The renowned ski resort of Isola 2000 is an hour's drive. The popular seaside resort of St Tropez can be reached in 1.5 hours (longer in summer).

Other Activities: Excellent Golf courses near Cannes/Mougins within 30 minutes drive, bike hire and cycling on the promenade at Nice, (20 minutes away) tennis courts and kayaking close by at La Colle Sur Loup (10 minutes drive), wine tours (just over an hour away).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Jasmin Villa is owned by my husband and I. We have 2 children aged 4 and 7 years. My husband is an artist and I am self-employed. I manage this villa and our other rental properties in Ireland. I also work freelance as a management consultant within the voluntary sector. We live in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Our other rental properties are 'Bayview' Dundrum, Ireland, listing no. 86767, 'Rose Cottage' Greyabbey, Ireland, listing no. 1130644 and 'Mimosa Villa', also in St Paul de Vence, listing no. 18909. We pride ourselves in offering a 'home from home' experience for our guests by ensuring our properties are comfortable, stylish and well equipped.

Why the Owner Chose St-paul-de-vence:
My husband and I fell in love with this property when we first rented it in 2005 and were thrilled when it came up for sale several years later. The views up to the beautiful village of St Paul de Vence are breath-taking and there's nothing we enjoy more than sitting on the terrace or in the garden savouring the views of the village and mountains and enjoying its very beautiful and peaceful green surroundings. The villa is located in a historic domaine which feels rather like a little hamlet. It has a lot of character and charm. We are fortunate on the domaine to have a large, beautiful pool with lovely views right down the hillside to the sea. The domaine enjoys a fantastic elevated position and is surrounded by woodland. Despite its semi-rural location all the delights of the Riviera are only a short drive away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Without doubt the views of St Paul de Vence are very special and we guarantee will capture your heart! The villa is situated in a very peaceful and private location surrounded by woodland. The large communal swimming pool is right around the corner - just a short stroll from the villa. We have taken great pride in renovating the villa in a delightful provencal style with lovely pieces sourced from the local brocantes and antique markets. We take pride in presenting our villa to a high standard and we hope we have thought of everything to ensure that our guests stay is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We have many returning guests - which is a good sign that we must be doing something right!
