Located in lovely Opio, L'Alealice is a beautiful house built in the pure Provencal tradition and surrounded by large pine trees.

L'Alealice comes with very nice landscapes, a gorgeous swimming pool and multiple sun terraces. Very well organized, the house offers a fully equipped kitchen, a large living area with a built-in fireplace and comes ready with TV, multi-zone Blu-ray/DVD, HiFi, high speed internet access connection, washing and drying machines. L'Alealice is the perfect spot for up to two families with young children looking to relax and 'recharge the batteries' while discovering the Provence.
Opio (Pop.: 1.947 h. Surface : 947 ha): In a 'protected' site, in the middle of a marvelous Mediterranean environment - olive trees, pines, cork oaks, arbutus trees, heather - stands the minuscule perched village of Opio. Thanks to an exceptional micro-climate, roses and jasmine are cultivated here for the Grasse perfume industry, while the Grande Bastide olive grove, one of the largest in the 'département', produces a delicious olive oil that you can buy at the Opio olive oil mill, one of the few such mills still operating in the region. It dates back to the 15th century.
Opio and its Golf courses: Golf lovers will be served in Opio. Three golf courses are at their disposal: the beautiful Golf d'Opio Valbonne, the stunning Golf de la Grande Bastide and finally the Golf managed by the Club Med nearby. All three golf courses are literally minutes away from the house.

About Remi El-ouazzane
We are a family of four living in San Francisco. My wife and I are both French. We both work in the high tech industry in Silicon Valley. We love coming back to Opio for our vacation.
Remi El-ouazzane purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Remi El-ouazzane chose Opio
We discovered the Nice area back country when we stationed there between 2005 and 2007 for work related reasons. We felt in love with the village of Opio. We go back there every year !
What makes this Villa unique
The house is uniquely positioned in the woods of Opio. This is such a quiet place, right in the middle of the nature but still very close to the big cities like Nice, Cannes or Antibes. The Opio city council is very strict when it comes to giving building permits which is something we care a lot about.
Pool / Spa
Sports & Adventure Activities
The Opio region is authentic France at its best with its romantic pathways, small towns lined with cobblestone streets, and restaurants that make your taste buds come back to life. The home was clean and full of the charm that you expect when leaving the fast pasted life in Oakland-San Francisco/California. If you have ever watch the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun”, then this place would be called “Under the Opio Sun”. We spent most our time sitting by the lightly salted, salt water pool enjoying the Mediterranean sun savoring local cheeses, sparkling wine, and fresh baked croissants. If we ever felt the need to leave the house, we were a short distance from Cannes, Nice, and Monte Carlo, Monaco. Hint/Hint: take the train to Monaco.
For dinner when we didn’t want to cook-in, we would take the kids and drive to the town of “Valbonne” and have dinner in the open air of the City Square and let the kids run around and eat ice-cream and mingle with the other children watching the entertainment of the night.
The house is close to food shopping and wonderful little bakeries that can easily cast-a-spell on you. The grocery store is about 8 minutes away and it’s called Cassino and it has nothing to do with gambling casinos, it’s just the name. Every morning I would drive down to the bakery and pickup warm fresh baked bread and croissants for breakfast and something sweet like Macaroons for later-on in day by the pool.
If you’re looking for a place to unwind, relax, and become a part of the place you are vacationing in. Then this is the place you are looking for. You can forget about all the work related issues back home and step out of the Rat-Race for moment, and realize that its moments like this that remind you the world is beautiful place.

Perfect for our family
We (2 adults, 4 children, 1 baby) had a wonderful time at this well-maintained property. Big garden for the children to play, well equipped kitchen, nice swimming pool, very quiet but shops/bakery within reasonable driving distance, washing machine, dish washer, all a family needs.
And an additional plus is the owner, Remi. He is very helpful and kind person of integrity. Thank you very much for this wonderful vacation!
Des vacances au calme
Une villa parfaite pour des vacances reposantes! Etant de la région et habitué de louer des maisons pour recevoir famille ou amis, vous ne vous tromperez pas a louer celle-ci. Un emplacement exceptionnel car elle est en bord de foret et a deux pas d'un golf donc la verdure y est au rendez-vous ce qui est très rare sur la cote d'azur. Un bon compromis pour visiter les petits villages de montagne, bien entendu toute la cote de Saint-Tropez a Menton en passant par Monaco et même l'Italie a seulement 1h!
Et si vous connaissez déjà tout, vous pouvez faire comme nous, profitez simplement du calme, de la piscine et de parties de pétanque en fin de soirée qui sont possibles dans l’allée qui mène a la villa :-)
Passez de bonnes vacances!
Opio is at the cross-road of the golden triangle (Cannes-Grasses-Antibes). It is a typical south of France little 'village' known for its unique charm, quietness and its beautiful golf courses.
