Villa Ciany is a charming Provencal, detached family villa with air conditioning set in mature gardens and enjoying magnificent views over the Bay of Villefrance and Cap Ferrat. The villa is situated approximately 10 km from Nice airport, 12 km from Monaco and 24 km from the Italian.

This villa and gardens are south facing and enjoy the sun throughout the day. Being in an elevated position, the views across the Bay of Villefranche are magnificent. The villa benefits from a heated pool, which is serviced throughout the year. There is a covered pergola beside the pool, which is ideal for eating meals out during the warmer months and in the evenings with seating for 8 plus guests. In the pergola, we have a fridge / wine cooler and loungers for use by the pool. A maid or our manager will meet guests on arrival and arrange cleaning etc. A gardener tends the gardens 5 hours a week and will dispose of the refuse. As villa Ciany is within easy traveling distance of Nice, Monaco and the Italian border by car or train, there is plenty to do for each individual taste. The villa is well furnished and in excellent condition. There is a large open space lounge with French doors leading to the terrace, also a spacious dining hall and separate study. A large secure garage is available.

Luxury villa overlooking the bay of Villefranche & Cap Ferrat
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Beautiful view, good location, spacious villa with a heated pool.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning view to the bay. Quiet neighbourhood, still walking distance (500 m) from boulangerie, boucherie and a Casino shop. 45 min walk to Nice. Villefrance village 500 m (540 steps...). By car the whole french Riviera can be reached easily. The villa is old, historical, but functional and spacious. Separate beds, which were a bit short (190 cm or so), in all but one bedroom was a small minus. Nice kitchen, grill and an outside eating area (with own fridge and freezer!) with stunning view was used daily. We’d return any time!

A wonderful period property with outstanding views

  • 5 of 5

The Villa has a totally unique charm, and the setting and views are simply breath-taking. We also really appreciated just how well equipped and to a high standard the kitchen and living area are – the sense of staying in a home rather than just accommodation. We have stayed in numerous locations over the years – Villa Ciany stands out for us.

Fantastic - Wonderful stay - Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Ciany. As a party of 8, we were surprised at how spacious the villa was. The view is spectacular - it was wonderful to wake up to such a nice view every morning. The villa is very clean. Andrew and his management team were very accommodating.

The centre of Nice is about 30 minutes walking or so - quite a pleasant walk and it means the villa is in a very peaceful location and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are tennis courts which are about 3 minutes walk from the villa. There is a bakery which is less than 10 mins walking from the villa as well as a Casino supermarket.

The pool is wonderful especially given the view. We used the outdoor sitting area most of the time. Great bbq facilities as well.

Would definitely consider staying in Villa Ciany again.

Magical place to celebrate special moments

  • 5 of 5

My childhood girlfriend and I decided to celebrate our milestone birthdays at Villa Ciany. The views of the bay and Cap Ferrat with its changing light during the day and evening were inspiring from the gardens and pool area where we had many lovely meals. The home was comfortable and beautifully decorated in the traditional style. The location of the home was ideal in order to visit the neighboring towns but we always looked forward to returning to the comforts of the villa in the evening. The town of Villefranche sur Mer has many good restaurants and amenities for the traveler. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends and look forward to returning some day.

Family holiday August 2012

  • 5 of 5

We chose Villa Ciany because it promised all the amenities that a family of seven aged from 6 to 70 plus required. We were not disappointed as everything was as per the specification even down to beach towels. The location is excellent as it is within easy reach of Villefranche itself and is an easy drive to shops and sightseeing in either Beaulieu sur Mer or Nice.

The pool was a great hit with everyone and most afternoons were spent in and around it and the view ensured that there was always activity in the bay to watch. The beach is only a short drive but tends to be very crowded.

The excellent selection of restaurants in Villefranche meant that the cooker in the kitchen was not tested. The ability to eat outside in the shade of the pergola for breakfast and lunch was a real bonus.

The availability of the housekeeper, gardener and pool maintenance ensured that there were no problems.

We would definitely go again and would recommend anyone seeking a high quality family holiday in the area to go and stay.

A car is essential to simplify getting around and exploring.
