Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
This beautiful Provencal Villa has been recently upgraded by us and now has a luxury kitchen and bathrooms. It is suitable for up to eight guests, with two double, one twin and one full-size-bunk bedrooms. The gardens and pool are totally private - no-one can overlook the property which is up at the end of a lane - and plenty of room for outdoor dining, using the summer kitchen and BBQ. The Villa is in easy driving distance of supermarkets (half-way to Valbonne and near the Antibes Autoroute junction), within 10 minutes drive to the sea and a little further if you want a sandy beach. Easy access to all the attractions of Cannes, Antibes, Nice and the Cote d'Azur, up into the lovely mountains behind the coast and many nearby golf courses.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The French Riviera has been a top holiday location of choice for decades. It has a beautiful year-round climate, where even in winter it is possible to sit outside at midday and enjoy the sunshine. Along the coast are the well-know towns / cities of Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Juan-les-Pins, Cannes and St Tropez. Many beautiful and historic hill towns and villages are within close driving distance including Biot itself, St Paul de Vence, Mougins, and Villeneuve Loubet. Grasse is famous for the perfume industry, there are numerous vineyards close by. In winter there is skiing within 90 minutes drive - it's possible to ski in the morning and sit on the beach in the afternoon when spring starts.
Biot itself is full of little craft shops, cafes and restaurants. The famous Biot Verrerie (glass-maker) is worth a visit and you can take home some wonderful glasses to remind you of your visit. The Fernand Leger Museum is also in the village - although less well known outside France than his contemporary, Picasso, he was a leading light of the cubism movement in the early 20th century. There is a golf course in the village and many more, including championship level courses, within 45 minutes drive.
Antibes is a beautiful ancient walled town, also with lots of shops and restaurants. And if you want to see how the rich, the very rich and the so-rich-you-can't-imagine spend some of their cash, have a look around the harbour at the yachts. You can dive from nearby Juan-les-Pins and there are many other opportunities to get out on the water.
