Why CRS chose Valbonne
we fell in love with the terrace!! We really appreciate the area (Beach and mountains on our doorstep) and the south of France in general. Right behind our house is a huge forest for your long hiking pleasure. (Note, we consistently improve the property - 2016 new front entrance, new pool infrastructure, newly painted bedroom #2 with AC...etc.)

Blissful stay in a wonderful part of France
We had a wonderful 2 week stay in Valbonne, Celeste was a fantastic host, checking in with us at multiple points (prior, during and post stay).
The villa was spacious and equipped with everything you could need for a relaxing stay. The pool was fabulous (clean and warm) and the outside area was just what we needed to enjoy the amazing Riviera weather. The walk into Valbonne is on the energetic side but we made it and it's literally a 3 minute car drive for the fainter hearted. We know this region really well and the villa is perfectly located to enjoy all the surrounding areas (Nice/Cannes/Antibes etc).
We will definitely recommend the villa, the area and the hosts.
An amazing, spacious, modern home from home
We had an amazing stay at this villa in Valbonne and would thoroughly recommend it. It is even more beautiful than the photos suggest and very spacious. The kitchen is wonderful, fully stocked for family cooking, modern and efficient. Light pours in through glass doors throughout the ground floor which give you a stunning view of the grounds. The pool is huge with a step and sloping entry perfect for my 5 and 8 year olds. The lounge and dining furniture around the pool is in great condition with an incredible mobile parasol and electric sun awning. You can tell this villa is owned and used by a family, as they have thought of everything to make it friendly to children, but at the same time luxurious for adults. The air conditioning throughout the house worked perfectly to keep is cool on even the hottest days. We loved the pet tortoises that we named Jerry and Bob, who ate most of my children's salad and vegetables over the two weeks! In over 10 years of renting villas through Owners Direct this was easily the best villa we have ever stayed in. Thank you Celeste and your family.
Perfect villa with beautiful garden and pool
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa (our second year running). When we arrived our five year old said "Hooray! We are at the house of loveliness!" The whole villa is very well maintained and clean and the garden and pool are perfect - we didn't want to leave!
Thank you for your feedback. We will keep "the light on" waiting for you next year :)
A Picturesque Villa Near Valbonne
This was our third visit to the French Riviera and by far the best. The villa is in a very central location, you can walk or take a short drive to Valbonne centre which has numerous restaurants and an excellent market every Friday. On arrival we were met by Maryse who was very helpful in explaining everything we needed to know about the workings of the villa. The Villa was immaculate, beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. The main living area was open plan in design with plenty of room for our family of five. The pool area was superb with shaded areas where you could sit and enjoy a glass of the locally produced wine. Highly recommend a visit to Saint Honorat, a boat trip from Cannes. A tranquil island that produces its own wine by the Monks that live there. It also has a wonderful restaurant.
This was the perfect holiday retreat, the attention to detail by the owner Celeste made everything run smoothly from the time of booking to vacating the villa at the end of our holiday. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa and who knows we may even return there ourselves next year.
Thank you Peter. I am glad you had a nice time - thank you for the tip on visiting the island.
Fabulous villa near to a beautiful village
This is a beautiful, superbly equipped villa with very well maintained gardens and beautiful pool area. The open plan nature of the lower floor and separate bedrooms / bathrooms made it ideal for our family of 6, with more than enough room. This was our 3rd trip to the French Riviera in 6 years and whilst we try not to compare holidays - both the Villa and great location of Valbonne stand out. It is apparent you are a guest in the Owners home, which is tastefully furnished and with a very well equipped kitchen.
On arrival the villa was immaculate and we were met by the neighbour Maryse who helped us settle in and familiarise us with the air conditioning, remote lighting configuration and security.
Despite the steep climb back from the village we chose to leave the car and walk into Valbonne for dinner on a number of evenings, We dined Alfresco from the BBQ on a number of nights and made the short drive to Juan Les PIns for the Jazz, Cannes for the fireworks festival and took the train from Biot to Monaco for lunch, shopping and to visit the Aquarium. Celeste made the booking process very easy for us and without doubt we would recommend this property to any family wishing to take advantage of one of the most beautiful, yet conveniently appointed villages for the area.
Thank you Jonathan for your feedback. There is an easier way to come back to the villa from Valbonne - not so steep of a hill. :) I will make sure I let the others know there is another way to walk back to the villa from Valbonne (and easier on the legs). All the best, Celeste
Great place in Valbonne
Wonderful home full of warmth. The layout of the house was perfect for us (2 adults and two teenage boys). We had the most relaxing time in the pool and trying out new restaurants in Valbonne. Lots of TLC from the owners. Will definitely return when we can!
Thank you Joi for your feedback.
