About the Property
Peaceful villa, sleeps 8, 5BR/2BA, amazing pool with sea-view overlooking nature
The villa is 250sqm and comfortably sleeps 8 guests with two bathrooms and two separate WC. The spacious living area is light and airy and opens onto a large 60sqm south-facing terrace. Opposite the villa are the fields of eucalyptus and mimosas in the nearby hills, and from the terrace the Mandelieu sea-front can be seen; the area is very quiet and peaceful at the end of a small hill road.
A large mezzanine is overlooking the main living area with a double bed. Downstairs 3 bedrooms open up to the garden and the infinity swimming pool (2 with double beds and 1 with twin beds); An protected alcove opposite the bedrooms contains a sofa bed (single or double). All rooms are freshly painted. The pool is an Infinity Salt Water Pool (no chlorine) , with a large stone terrace where one can relax in one of the sun loungers.
The house has been decorated by us for us: all floors are tiled, furniture items tend to be family antiqued furniture, you try to put as many pictures as possible to give you an overview ! The kitchen has a traditional Provence Style and is well equipped as we tend to cook quite a lot.
We have a ping pong table, board games, some books and a piano area. We have tried to make the villa as child-friendly as possible and provide a high chair, changing mat, and beach toys.
There is parking space in front of the main entrance for 2 cars under the shade of a tree, and additional space at the back of the house if needed.
As stated, the setting is peaceful and quiet and offers far reaching countryside views of the nature reserve of the Esterel and the Bay of Cannes. The beach is only 15 minute away by car and we tend to go late afternoon when it gets a bit cooler and people start to leave. Cannes is 20mn away, great for shopping, restaurants, cinemas etc. Being outside Cannes is helpful to reach out other sites, such as Biot, St Paul de Vence, Nice or Monaco. There is really a lot to do.

Pegomas is a beautiful location set with views of mimosas-laden country side. The nearest beaches of Cannes or Mandelieu are only a 15 min drive, with the famous Perfume capital of the world. 'Grasse' 15 mins in the other direction.
The famous villages of Mougins, St. Paul de Vence, Antibes, Eze, are all within easy reach. Biot and Vallauris are also worth a visit for their glass and pottery crafts.
Monaco and Nice can be reached within 30-50mn by car or take the train from Mouans Sartoux and enjoy a scenic journey along the coast. Use the autoroute to go to St Tropez (allow 1h) or try reaching St Tropez by ferry from Cannes or Ste Maxime (15 minute trip) - it misses out on the worst of the traffic, and you get a great view of the town as you approach it from the sea.
Another great day outing is a visit to the islands opposite Cannes, St Marguerite and St Honorat. Both can be reached by ferry (40mn).
Museum-wise, we have enjoyed the Fondation Maeght (St Paul de Vence), the Picasso museum (Antibes), Fernand Leger museum (Biot), Matisse museum (Nice), Chagall museum (Nice), Bonnard museum (Cannet) and many others all very close by - just to mention as well the Museum of Antique Automobiles (Monaco).
For children, many things are on offer: Marineland is a water centre with fabulous killer whales and dolphins shows (amongst many other things); the Frejus Zoo; the prehistoric caves; Monaco aquarium, and much more !
For nature-lovers, L'Esterel offers great hiking trips that our children love. We also venture in the hills behind our house towards Auribeau for a lovely walk between the eucalyptus and the mimosas. Slightly further away, Lac St Cassien is a must see, for a refreshing swim in the fresh water lake.
The spectacular Verdon Gorge is a 2-hour drive away. A magnificent canyon and gigantic cliffs of calcareous rock, you can enjoy the Azur's fresh water lakes or for the more adventurous do some white water rafting in the intertwining rivers. An alternative, maybe slightly less spectacular but much closer, are the 'Gorges du Loup', only 30 minutes away
Golf: The closest golf course is only 10-15 minutes away and there are another dozen courses within one hour's drive.
Ski: Isola 2000 offers skiing for all levels, just over an hour by car, and for families the small resort of Greolieres-les-Neiges is only 50km away.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We are a French London-based family. When young, Alexis used to spend his summer vacation in his grandmother's family home in Mandelieu with his cousins, so we have kept a strong attachment to the region.
Why the Owner Chose Pégomas, France:
We bought this property 17 years ago and it has been our main holiday home since then. The kids love it and we now start having their friends as holiday guests! The neighbourhood is lovely and we know all our local neighbours. We have enhanced the house over the years and are continuing to do so. We hope our guests will enjoy their stay as much as we do. Initially, we chose not to have any WiFi and TV to get away from screens while on holidays, but have now obviously given up on some of our principles for rental purposes - we have Internet access and also a large TV!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We feel in love with the light, the volumes, the fantastic view and the warm décor. We have built the swimming pool 7 years ago and this has changed the way we use the house: the kids are outside the whole time morning and late afternoon. We tend to go to the beach for later afternoon to avoid the crowds and the heat, and also for water activities (sailing or scuba-diving in Cannes or Mandelieu).
