Villa Saint-Véran is an old aristocratic villa, which was once an olive farm, before being converted into a residential villa in the 18th century. After being in the family for the past 100 years, it has been brought back to life in a recent refurbishment, which lasted two years, giving it back its original character and elegance, whilst providing modern comforts.
This impressive villa sits in a private and quiet area on a hilltop, on the edge of a village with its medieval castle, and offers panoramic views of the Saint-Véran Forest, the Alps and the sea.
Within walking distance is Villeneuve-Loubet, a lovely seaside town of the Côte d’Azur, between Monaco and Cannes, overlooking the hills of Saint-Paul-de-Vence and Grasse, and boasting nearly 4 km of coastline. Guests can stroll down for morning coffee and bread or a meal in one of the restaurants.
Villa Saint-Véran is surrounded by two hectares of lush Mediterranean parkland and landscaped gardens, featuring numerous terraces, centennial olive trees and cypresses, eucalyptus, palm trees and oleanders leading up to a woodland. Indoors high ceilings, French doors, fireplaces and terracotta floors sit alongside state-of-the-art air-conditioning and fully renovated bathrooms and kitchen.
The Côte d’Azur in its all its glory is on the doorstep; 15 minutes from Nice Airport, 10 minutes from the sea, 5 minutes from Saint-Paul-de-Vence and Cannes, Monaco and Grasse all under half an hour away.
Villa Saint Veran is strategically situated between Nice and Cannes, in the outskirts of Villeneuve-Loubet. A 15-mins stroll down a hill takes you to this traditional village dotted with little flowered streets, where you can find a bakery, butcher, grocery store, bar and restaurants. From the hillside of the house, you can also enjoy a 1.5km long walk bordering the banks of the Loup River and crossing the lush Mediterranean forest of the Saint Veran hill up until the beach of Villeneuve-Loubet. Furthermore, this is also a family friendly destination with two theme parks and recreational areas offering countless possibilities for a variety of outdoor activities and water sports.
The well-known Polygone Riviera is just a 15 minutes walk away: it is the first open air shopping center in Europe with countless shops, restaurants, bars, cinema and casino.
The characteristic Provençal villages of the Pays Vençois are very close by as are the Gorges du Loup, the waterfalls in Courmes, Demoiselles and Saut du Loupe and the Baou de Saint-Jeannet (807 m) mountain overlooking the coast of the Cote d'Azur, ideal for climbing lovers.
The bustling towns of Vence and St-Paul de Vence, known worldwide for their artistic and cultural activities (Fondation Maeght and other prestigious galleries of the Cercle des Artistes), are just about 6km away.
The artistic town of Grasse (22km), also called the “Capital of Flowers and Perfume" and offering splendid vistas over the shores near Cannes, is a further recommended place to visit.
On the coast, don't miss the Greek-Roman maritime city of Antibes-Juan-les-Pins (12km), the chic Mediterranean yachting harbour and sandy beaches in Cap d'Antibes and the effervescence of Juan-les-Pins. Likewise, we recommend visiting the charming city of Antibes which has delighted many visitors, from Picasso to Nicolas de Staël, from Sidney Bechet to Miles Davis, between fisherman's districts, yachtsmen's wharves, Provençal market, pine groves hosting jazz concerts.
Inland, are the villages, of Biot (famous for its glasswork and master glassmakers) and Valbonne, models for a certain art of living, artistic creativity, architectural charm.
The chic and dazzling city of Cannes (23km), where famous festivals and great events take place throughout the year, is also must-to-see destination in the area. Spend the day on the beach, admire the beautiful La Croisette and take a boat to the Isles of Lérins. These islands are considered among the most splendid natural heritage sites of the French Riviera. In the Ile de Ste-Marguerite,one can visit the Royal Fort, the Musée de la Mer and take a stroll across its beautiful pine and eucalyptus forest. The equally stunning Ile St-Honorat belongs to a community of Cistercian monks and offers a fortified monastery and abbey.
The whole region stands out for its stunning natural assets, with limestone mountains, vast natural parks, streams and superb golf courses.
It goes without saying that Villa Saint Veran is an excellent choice to stay on the French Riviera, offering a quick and easy access to the different activities and interests of the beautiful Alpes-Maritimes department.
