Further details indoors:
My villa is Provencal style and modest -looking but on entering it opens out into a spacious 42 square metre 'sejour' with fireplace. There is a very large main bedroom with double bed, a second double bedroom with double bed and a third double bedroom with two single beds.
There is also an attic on the same level which is useful for storing suitcases, and there is also a single bed which can be used in that room. There are also two travel cots available.
The cloakroom is on the ground floor.
The kitchen is bright, but modest. It is well stocked with everyday items with more crockery and cutlery available in the dining area.
Further details outdoors:
The villa is in a gated residence. There is a small garden behind the house with views across the Petit Lac de Mandelieu, and the MMV Resort which was developed 3 years ago and is proving an asset for guests. It is not necessary to be staying there to enjoy the facilities. It is only a 5 minute walk away. It is possible to buy spit-roasted chicken and pizzas to take away or have meals there.
The pool and tennis court are particular assets as these are not overly used by the residents, who are mainly French people who live there permanently.
Elderly people have stayed in the house but there is a flight of stairs to the bedrooms and all the floors are tiled.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
Mandelieu-La Napoule is surrounded by le Massif de l'Esterel with its' many mountain villages to visit as well as Lac Cassien- lovely if it is too hot for the beach. Grasse is about 20 minutes by car and St. Paul de Vence probably an hour.
In the 19th century European aristocrats initiated the development of the first golf course at La Napoule which is close to the house. This progressed 100 years later and there are now two golf courses and a golfing academy.
La Napoule is ideally situated on the edge of the Mediterranean facing the Iles de Lerins which can be visited by boat from Cannes all year and La Napoule during higher season.
The hottest summer months are July and August, June and September less so with October-November stil very pleasant. Good beach /swimming weather in October.
Just across the lake behind the property is the MMV Resort. Development of this was only completed two years ago and we feel it is an asset. Non-residents can visit MMV, which is only five minutes from the house, and enjoy entertainment in the main area during the summer months, as well as the restaurants and coffee shop.
The Cannes Mandelieu / La Napoule area
THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL IS IN MAY.
The chateau at La Napoule which is open to visitors, is actually a 'folly' Foundation H. Clews and worth a visit. after a wander around the old part of La Napoule.
Sailing facilities and windsurfing at the local beach are suitable for beginners as well as more advanced sailors. Rowing is possible on the Siagne River, as well as water skiing and parachuting at the beach.
The famous Mimosa Forest is at Tanneron a short car ride away
If you have rods, then you can enjoy some fishing in the Siagne.
Day boat trips are a five minute walk from the house. These offer a day trip to swim with Dolphins - not cheap!
There are lovely beaches to the west to visit by car. Frejus, St. Raphael, Port Grimaud and St Tropez are also day trips.
Cannes and Nice are also great to visit and of course dont forget the Casino at Monaco. Take identification and Euros 10 for entrance to the Public Rooms
The Mimosa Festival is in February so not a 'must' for summer visitors. The Cannes Film Festival is in May.
There is an English cinema in Cannes and many cultural events take place within the area.
