Le Grand Marquis villa description

Holidays at Villa Franca means vacation from the first day. You enter the house through the spacious entrance area to the lounge and right here you will notice how this property was lovingly equipped by the owners with an eye for details. There a 2 queen size beds in the master bedroom, a private bathroom, dressing room and WC. 2 further bedrooms offer space for 2 people each. They share a bathroom with WC. Additionally, there is a guest WC.
There is a fully equipped kitchen including fridge with ice maker, cooker, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave, all kitchen helpers and a breakfast bar which is perfect for having a cocktail while enjoying the views of the pool and both of the boating canals. All bedrooms are fully equipped including flat screen TVs, in the living room an extra large one. Spacious pool area with whirlpool, sun loungers and American barbecue, tropical garden with boat lift and tiki.

The gem is shining again!: Villa Franca, ex Villa Barbara, was completely renovated inside and outside in February/March 2011. The result is amazing! The villa is shining new and does not only offer you an impressive sight when you arrive, but is also sparkling with new inner values, such as flat screen TVs in living and bedrooms, new, large stainless steel kitchen applicances and much more.

There is also entertainment!: Aside from the spacious pool and whirlpool area as well as the mandatory big screen TV, there a plenty of further amenities for Villa Franca’s guests, making your stay here amusing. These are the small but distinct differences between a privately owned holiday home and the often impersonal houses of large property owners.
Of course, our guests can use our 4 bicycles – two for adults and two for children – and play table tennis in the driveway or in the large double garage.
Of course, there is a large selection of holiday literature in German, from crime stories to children’s books.
There are pool toys in the pool area as well as inflatables and kick-boards for young and old water babies.
The whole package for your vacations in Florida!

The house and the large corner property provide plenty of space so you can have tranquil hours despite full occupancy. The electric boat lift at the garden offers you the occasion to land your rental boat safely directly at the house, reaching the river in only a few 100 metres and starting off to the nicest beaches at the Gulf of Mexico, without driving long through canals or even water gates, as you would have to from many other houses. Of course, we are happy to help you rent a boat as you wish. ...moreless

                      Villa Franca is splendidly located on an extra large corner property right on the canal. Unlike many other houses on the canals of the Venice of Florida, it is only a few hundred metres, that is, a couple of minutes by boat, to the river and then you have free access to the world renowned beaches of Cape Coral. There is no water gate to slow down your fast access to the golf.

                      The location in the historic part of the town, near the popular marina, also has the advantage that you can easily reach all convenience stores, Fort Myers via the bridge, or start off to Sanibel Island beach or one of the countless golf courses nearby. The house is quietly located at the end of a dead end with no transit.

                      The villa’s ideal, almost north-facing position allows you to make use of the pool area where it does not get too hot and which offers shady spots. Thanks the huge pool area and the large garden, you will always find a place in the sun, even in Florida’s 'winter'.
