St-paul-de-vence villa description

Villa Olivade is a one-bedroom Provençal villa situated on the beautiful, privately gated, Domaine du Piol. Domaine du Piol's elevated position gives it unrivalled views to snow capped mountains and the sea. The villa benefits from the sun starting in the early morning and throughout the day until it sets directly in front of the west facing balcony. Throughout the day, you can enjoy the sunshine and views from either the balconies, the terrace or the sun deck. All of which are on different levels and all offer those essential, amazing views of the Cote d’Azur.

The terrace has a large shaded Pergola with seating for 4 persons and garden lights mean you can eat late into the evening. Multiple adjustable wooden sun-beds on the terrace an be used for sun bathing or walk down to the lower sun deck which sits amongst palms, bamboo and grasses and is also equipped with adjustable sun-beds & parasol.


Villa Olivade Features: The villa is beautifully appointed and decorated throughout with stylish furnishings, marble bathroom, super-king wooden bateau-lit bed, quality kitchenware, air conditioning and WiFi.

You have a choice of areas for dining either inside or out including either our balcony on the top level or beneath the pergola on the terrace. There are many pretty spots to sit outside in the gardens and enjoy a glass of wine all offering different views either to the sea, mountains or surrounding area and villages.

There is a large, shared swimming pool on the Domaine with views to the sea.

The popular village of St Paul de Vence is a 20 minute walk from the villa but you will need a car if you want to explore further which is recommended in this beautiful area.

St Paul de Vence: The Medieval village of St Paul is just a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive away. Here you can stroll through the cobbled streets and enjoy some of the finest art available or watch petanque being played by the locals whilst enjoying a drink in the Cafe de la Place.

Opposite the Cafe de la Place is the famous Colombe D'or. Voted one of the top 10 restaurants in the world, the Colombe D'or has the largest private collection of artwork in the world from Piccasso as well as work by Matisse and Renoir. Although a regular haunt for the rich and famous, the staff of the Colombe D'or makes everybody feel welcome.

An evening walk around the ramparts is recommended to catch the amazing sunset and see the swallows fill the sky. If you prefer, you can enjoy the same sunset from the villa!

The Côte d'Azur: The A8 which runs along the Cote D'Azur is just 10 minutes from Domaine du Piol and is your fast track to the most famous coastline in the world! Destinations such as Nice are just 15 min, Cannes 30 min, Eze 25 min, Monaco 30 min, Menton and the Italian border 35 min, .... the list goes on.

Heading out beyond Saint Paul there are many beautiful villages such as Vence, Tourette Sur Loup, Gordon and Grasse as well as famous institutions such as the Maeght Foundation, Ville Emprussi de Rothchild and National Parks like the Mercantour and Massif de l’Esterel.

                  The Côte d'Azur is like no other place in France. There is a remarkable beauty in its offshore islands, hills and coastline, the scent of the plant life, the mimosa blossom in February and the impossibly blue water after which the coast is named. The Côte d'Azur remains undeniably captivating. Every time there is a gap in the hills, the skyline is dominated by the French Alps. The white capped mountains against the blue sea and the surrounding countryside is something every one should have the privilege of enjoying. The Côte d'Azur really does cater for all tastes.

                  Other Activities: Yachting & Motorboat hire (include non licence)

                  Golf: Golf de Villeneuve-Loubet – Route de Grasse, 06270 Villeneuve-Loubet

                  Opio-Valbonne Golf Club – Château de la Begude, Route de Roquefort-les-Pins 06650 Opio

                  Golf Country Club de Cannes-Mougins – Cannes, France, 06250

                  Golf de Roquebrune – Roquebrune, France, 83520

                  Monte-Carlo Golf Club – Route du Mont Agel, 06320 La Turbie

                  Ski: The nearest resort to St Paul is Gréoliéres which is just a 35 minutes drive away. Although just a small resort, its location close to the coast means it is a popular visit for a quick morning's ski followed by relaxing on the beach in Cannes in the afternoon. Gréoliéres also has the best cross country skiing (ski du fond). There are about eight courses up to 11km long to suit beginners and experts alike.

                  For larger resorts you need to head towards the Alps and go to either Valberg, Isola or Auron. These three resorts are less than 1 hour 15 min to get to and offer all levels of skiing. Isola offers the biggest variety. Auron is the prettiest and Valberg fits nicely between the two.

                  Further into the Alps and the choice of resorts is vast.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: Sally and I have been in love with the Côte d'Azur since the mid 90's. We first went with EasyJet using tokens collected from a national newspaper! Before I met Sally I used to ride my motorcycle to Bandol for the big event in the motorcycle racing calendar The Bol d'Or. Bandol was a place I loved and hoped that one day, I would live there also.

                  Why the Owner Chose St-paul-de-vence:
                  The plan was simple. The area was to be in or around Bandol. The property to be manageable with NO RENOVATION. We ended up 150 Kilometers away standing in a property signing papers with rain coming through the roof and looking out of the broken windows and shutters. But. What a view! 2 years later, (after a lot of hard work) we had a property we could actually use! The first thing that hits you is the view. There is no other property on the domain that has such a magnificent view to the sea and the surrounding countryside. In fact, only St Paul itself has the same views. That view can be enjoyed from the balconies, the terrace or the lower garden. Each area offering a different aspect. There is always something to see. According to Google maps, the view to the west is up to 40 kilometers and takes in Cannes as well as the mountains of L'estoril.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  The location is ideal for exploring the region and is centrally located between Nice and Cannes. St Paul is a pleasant 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by car. Don't just visit the famous costal resorts though. Point your car the other way and drive into the mountains to visit hill top villages and mountain streams. Not enough people in my opinion explore 'the interior' as it is called by the Azurians. I don't think they tell anyone actually. They keep it to themselves! Whatever you decide to do, there are so many wonderful places that you would need a month just to see a fraction of what this area has to offer. We always offer all our guests help and advice to plan their holiday. Sally and I lived in the villa for 6 years and have good knowledge of what to do and where to go to get the most from your stay.
