Villa Olivade is a one-bedroom Provençal villa situated on the beautiful, privately gated, Domaine du Piol. Domaine du Piol's elevated position gives it unrivalled views to snow capped mountains and the sea. The villa benefits from the sun starting in the early morning and throughout the day until it sets directly in front of the west facing balcony. Throughout the day, you can enjoy the sunshine and views from either the balconies, the terrace or the sun deck. All of which are on different levels and all offer those essential, amazing views of the Cote d’Azur.
The balconies, large terrace and lower garden area are all private and exclusive to Olivade. No other property on the domaine offers the same amount of privacy or views.
The terrace has a large shaded Pergola with seating for 4 persons and garden lights mean you can eat late into the evening. Multiple adjustable wooden sun-beds on the terrace can be used for sun bathing or walk down to the lower sun deck which sits amongst palms, bamboo and grasses and is also equipped with adjustable sun-beds & parasol.
Villa Olivade Features: The villa is beautifully appointed and decorated throughout with stylish furnishings, marble bathroom, super-king wooden bateau-lit bed, quality kitchenware, air conditioning and WiFi.
You have a choice of areas for dining either inside or out including either our balcony on the top level or beneath the pergola on the terrace. There are many pretty spots to sit outside in the gardens and enjoy a glass of wine all offering different views either to the sea, mountains or surrounding area and villages.
There is a large, shared swimming pool on the Domaine with views to the sea and the Mountains.
Parking is right outside the villa. The parking is covered which is essential in the summer.
St Paul de Vence: The Medieval village of St Paul is just a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive away. Here you can stroll through the cobbled streets and enjoy some of the finest art available or watch petanque being played by the locals whilst enjoying a drink in the Cafe de la Place.
Opposite the Cafe de la Place is the famous Colombe D'or. Voted one of the top 10 restaurants in the world, the Colombe D'or has the largest private collection of artwork in the world from Piccasso as well as work by Matisse and Renoir. Although a regular haunt for the rich and famous, the staff of the Colombe D'or makes everybody feel welcome.
An evening walk around the ramparts is recommended to catch the amazing sunset and see the swallows fill the sky. If you prefer, you can enjoy the same sunset from the villa!
The Côte d'Azur: The A8 which runs along the Cote D'Azur is just 10 minutes from Domaine du Piol and is your fast track to the most famous coastline in the world! Destinations such as Nice are just 15 min, Cannes 30 min, Eze 25 min, Monaco 30 min, Menton and the Italian border 35 min, .... the list goes on.
Heading out beyond Saint Paul there are many beautiful villages such as Vence, Tourette Sur Loup, Gordon and Grasse as well as famous institutions such as the Maeght Foundation, Ville Emprussi de Rothchild and National Parks like the Mercantour and Massif de l’Esterel.
