Property description

Looking for the perfect family experience in the French Rivieira?
Located in lovely Opio, L'Alealice is a beautiful house built in the pure Provencal tradition and surrounded by large pine trees. Sleeping up to 8 people comfortably, the house is within 10-30 minutes from Grasse, Antibes, beaches, Cannes, Nice airport and nearest ski station. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Opio, France:
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 !

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
