About the property

Two Bedroom Fully Detached House With Garden In The Best Part Of St Jean

Villa La Mignonne is situated in one of the most exclusive areas in the world: the cape of St Jean Cap Ferrat. The house is a stone's throw away from the marina in St Jean, a two minute walk from the breathtaking Paloma Beach and on the doorstep of stunning walks around the cape. We are less than 100 meters up the road from the luxurious Hotel La Voile d’Or.

La Mignonne is a fully detached house (68m2) with a paved garden (46m2) raised above the road. The garden has an outdoor shower for when you return from the beach or just for cooling off. The garden has recently been re-tiled with marvellous travertine limestone.

There are two double bedrooms upstairs and both have French doors which open directly onto the balcony (7m2). All the rooms are bright, airy and air-conditioned. The house has recently been refurbished throughout including new bathrooms, a new kitchen and new furniture. There is also a dedicated very fast wifi connection!

The ground floor (34m2) has an open plan kitchen living and dining room that opens out directly into the garden. This floor also has a cloakroom with a toilet and a washing machine.

Upstairs (a further 34m2) there are two identically outfitted double bedrooms, a large built-in wardrobe and a bathroom with an Italian shower. The bedrooms each have large French doors opening onto a balcony (7m2) with views towards Beaulieu sur Mer, the hilltop village of Eze and Monaco.

About Christian Olsen

We are a family of four living in London. Our previous holiday home was in the historic village of Haut de Cagnes.

Christian Olsen purchased this villa in 2012

Why Christian Olsen chose Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

We wanted a detached house that was close to the beaches of St Jean Cap Ferrat.

What makes this villa unique

In the best part of St Jean, great views from both bedrooms, a lovely paved garden and just a few minutes walk to Plage Paloma!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr Olsen

We have left Villa Mignonne well-swept yesterday.

Again it has been a 100% perfect holiday. It has been very recreative for the whole family to enjoy Villa Mignonne and the beautiful Cap-Ferrat. Our fifth stay here in this area, our 2nd in Mignonne and our favorite is Mignonne in the meanwhile. Hope to have the opportunity to return soon. Besides lying at the beach, cooking and hiking is one of our favorite activities there. Maybe I can convince my family to make holidays in March or April some time when I expect it to be lovely, too.

Best regards

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in June

  • 5 of 5

Good evening Christian

Our review to you is as follows:

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in June and the weather was hot. We know St Jean well and we always like returning.

The Villa was very clean and simply furnished with basic equipment but with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. The Villa is in a great position and conveniently located.

Many thanks again.

Kind regards

John & PJ

Delightful Villa Mignonne with Views

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the Villa Mignonne was absolutely the best experience I have had on a vacation. My two sisters and I, took my mom to stay at the Villa for her 80th birthday, for 2 weeks. The reason we picked this house, was my family had lived in this house in the early 60’s, my dad was in the Navy stationed in near-by Ville Franche. The Villa and St. Jean hold many special memories for my family.

The Villa is as described: clean; newly renovated; great location; spectacular views; owner was responsive and helpful; washing machine (big bonus); I will definitely return and recommend; and lastly the Villa photos are accurate, but the house and views in person are much superior.

There are plenty of restaurants, a grocery store, a butcher shop, and bakery within an easy 2-3 block walk from the house. The beaches are nearby, and there is a trail that runs the circumference of St. Jean, with breathtaking views everywhere you look. We walked the entire Cap, and also walked frequently from St. Jean to Beaulieu. All trails had beautiful views all around.

We rented a car, and able to park in front of the house 90% of the time. St. Jean is centrally located to many local cities, we drove to Nice multiple times, Grasse, Gourdon, St Paul De Vence and Monaco. We took the train to Italy.

I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Quelle jolie maison!pleine de charme et en meme temps toute en simplicité et très fonctionnelle!

L'endroit est idéal pour un couple avec des enfants,à coté de la plage de la paloma et à 2 pas du centre de Saint jean cap ferrat;prendre le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse le matin est un pur bonheur!

La villa mignonne fait partie ces rares endroits que l'on veut garder secret,à ne partager qu'avec les gens qu'on aime!!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing and in a very clean condition. The house is centrally located. The beautiful Paloma beach is nearby within walking distance. The beach offeres some shade even on hot days, the restaurant is first class and there are plenty of watersport activities. In the village, there are nice restaurants, where we enjoyed delicious seafood dishes. In comparison with Nizza or Cannes, Saint Jean - Cap Ferrat was never crowded. The nearby Villefranche sûr mer was also lovely. Unfortunately in the summer season, to search a parking was a job of it's own in whole region.

Our holidays in this property at Saint Jean - Cap Ferrat was worth the trip and is highly recommended.

Relaxing and calm

  • 5 of 5

We - a family with two girls, ages 8 & 7 - spent a very relaxing, calm and extraordinary sunny week at La Mignonne in early February. The well-equipped house is located close to the center of St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat and just a short walk from beaches and the coast promenade. St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is a convenient location for discovering the Cote d'Azur region around Nice and Monaco.
