About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6), pool, garden, terraces

Villa Miramar... Lovely villa with dazzling sea views!

Three bedrooms, garden, swimming pool. Lovely villa with dazzling sea views, beach two minutes, sleeps six (three bedrooms, one with fireplace, three bath/shower-rooms), very large living area (living room with fireplace, dining area, library), designer kitchen, Designers Guild interior, terraces, garden, garage.

Overlooking the bay of La Figuerette and the Iles de Lerin in the bay of Cannes, the villa has recently been refurbished to the highest modern standards. With sea views from every room over the Mediterranean, including the hills of SuperCannes, the Italian Alps, and---on a very clear day---Corsica, Villa Miramar is in easy walking distance from the beach (two minutes by car), and only footsteps away from an entrance to the National Park de l'Esterel with fantastic hiking and mountain biking.

The property features a modern interior (Designers Guild). There is a swimming pool 9 by 5 meters, and terraces for sunbathing and outdoor dining, set in a terraced Mediterranean garden.

The total interior area is 250 square meters or 2700 square feet. The terraced garden is 1200 square meters or 13,000 square feet. There is a garage and additional parking area on the driveway. The villa is south-east facing, at an altitude of 110 meters, or 360 feet.

Le Trayas is a village built on the slopes of the Pic Martin, a hill at the foot of the the Esterel mountain range. The local coast line is known as the Cote d'Or, featuring the world famous Corniche d'Or, one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world. The Cote d'Or has innumerable small sandy bays, separated by dramatic cliffs.

The Villa was chosen for the (British) Channel Four documentary 'A Place in the Sun' as one of the most beautiful properties on the Cote d'Azur.

Cleaning service on Saturday is included in the price. Additional cleaning and maid services are available on request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a stunning location and what a beautiful home. We stayed there for several weeks last summer, and found the setting amazing for both relaxing and sightseeing. It's hard to walk away from the incredible views from the terrace, but there is so much great stuff to do in the area also. The house is absolutely beautiful (the pictures are 100% real) and extremely well-appointed. Michael has thought of everything and is also a pleasure to deal with.

Gorgeous Villa

  • 5 of 5

No picture could ever do this villa justice. We rented the villa in October 2007, and we were immediately struck by how gorgeous it is! The owner, Michael, met us at the villa with the key, and he was so helpful and friendly - he made us feel right at home.

The interior is beautifully decorated and spotless, and the view outside is overwhelming. When we weren't enjoying the house and its view, we made multiple day trips. The villa is so conveniently located - it took less than an hour to travel everywhere we wanted to go on the Riviera.

I really can't recommend this place enough. We do a fair amount of traveling, and this is truly the nicest place we've ever rented - and we've stayed at a lot of great places.

Our family of 5 (now twin 11 y/o and a 13 y/o) very much enjoyed staying in this lovely, spacious, and comfortable house during the last week of June. We loved the fabulous view of the sea from almost every room, the weather, the beautiful gardens, the well decorated interior, the library, the pool, and, the well appointed kitchen (we loved being able to cook meals with the freshest local ingredients). It is easy to see why the ancients settled here.

Michael, the owner, and Sacha, the caretaker, were very nice and responsive to our needs. In addition, a very detailed instructions/information booklet and list of local restaurants is provided, which was very helpful. We tried a few of the restaurants-- the Marco Polo and Jalili B were our favorites. There were many staples in the villa when we arrived allowing us to wait until the next morning before going to the super market. Further, the washing machine and dryer worked well. Finally, we were given a bottle of champagne as a welcome gift upon arrival, which was a great way to start our week.

In terms of opportunities for improvement, the only minor suggestions we have are for additional instructions about the induction stove.

This was a wonderful place to stay and we hope to return soon.

A real home away from home with hosts who cannot do enough to ensure your stay goes smoothly.

  • 5 of 5

We consider ourselves fortunate to have discovered this piece of paradise on the Med. It is located ideally between the larger centres of Cannes & St Tropez so it's possible to visit either by car or boat - available from the local marina.

After a busy day it's possible to relax and unwind with a swim in the pool and a BBQ on the deck over looking the Med. Truely amazing to watch the large boats ply the crystal clear waters as they move up and down the coast

The home is everything the pictures suggest. There is no false advertising here! What made the stay most enjoyable was the feeling of being in someone's well provisioned and cared for home. What made our week outstanding was the genuine care displayed when something was not quite right. It was dealt with and fixed without regard to cost or effort. The owners genuinely want their guests to have a great time and take pride in the home.

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect place and location for our family of 5. The views from the home were amazing as was the design and amenities. We loved the location as there is so much do do all with in an hour or so away. Michael was wonderful to work with and made everything easy for us. This is the perfect place to just stop and relax. We can't wait to return

Wonderful. We will go back.

  • 5 of 5

The views are superb. The villa is 115m above sea level. The place is very quiet. You can sit in the very nice terrace and hear the silence. The house is fully renovated with wooden floor and is very well appointed. You feel that every details have been thought about from the kitchen to the bathrooms. Beds are comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much much and will happily go back.

The villa is amazing with the views from every room. Le Trayas is in a lovely small bay, one of the nicest spots along this bit of the coast. We visited in Febuary and it is the perfect place for out of season, on the couple of days when the weather was not great you've still got those beautiful views. Loved it.
