Villa Laurier, Cannes
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This modern 3 bedroom villa with private pool has stunning views over the surrounding Esterel Mountains, and down towards the sea. It's perfectly located in an elevated position in the hills near to Cannes, yet just 1km back down to the many shops and cafes in the town of Mandelieu.
The villa comprises of a large living/dining area, open-plan kitchen, utility area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two independent WC's, a large dining terrace, beautifully landscaped gardens, private swimming pool and parking for one car.
In a small gated domaine of recently built houses, it's just 5-10 minutes by car down to the old village of La Napoule, with its marinas and sandy beaches. A short drive around the bay and you'll soon find yourself in the Port and town of Cannes. It's great for those wanting a comfortable base for relaxing, but also close to the sea and inland villages. The town of Mandelieu offers a direct access onto the A8 AutoRoute, so touring the whole Cote d'Azur coastline couldn't be easier.
It has a maximum occupancy of 6 people (plus babies) and would be perfect for a large family or group of friends (but no organised parties please).

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Sightseeing is endless; you have the famous town of Cannes and its old town ‘Le Suquet’; the Port of Cannes; the designer shops in Cannes on the ‘Croisette’; boat trips out to the nearby ‘Isles de Lerins’; the charming hilltop village of Mougins; the fabulous coastal road and ‘red rock’ mountains of the Esterel; the Château de la Napoule; the amazing Gorge de Verdon; daytrips to St Raphael, Saint Tropez & Monaco; and lots lots more!
Other entertainment includes shopping, the casinos & nightlife of Cannes, cinemas, festivals, wine tasting, helicopter rides, the Festival du Mimosa in February or just good old relaxing on the beach!
Local shops, restaurants, banks & supermarkets can be found just 1km downhill in the local town of Mandelieu. There's also a very large ‘Geant’ supermarket and shopping mall a little further away, offering just about everything you will need! A further selection of shops, boulangeries and restaurants can be found in the nearby coastal village of La Napoule. There's also a good selection of restaurants around the Port of La Napoule (including the famous Relais & Chateau Oasis) and in the surrounding coastal towns of Cannes and Theoule-sur-Mer.
Local markets are held in nearby Mandelieu and La Napoule, plus in Cannes you'll find a daily huge covered-market which offers an array of fish, vegetables and fresh local produce.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant – the main activity here is golf as there is both a 9 and 18 hole golf course (visitors welcome!); there’s also tennis, plus all the aquatic sports like sailing, diving, fishing, jet skis and water skiing. You’re also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Esterel region here, which makes walking, cycling and horse riding very popular.
Beaches you'll find a long stretch of superb, sandy beaches just a short drive away, running right around the bay from La Napoule to Cannes. The beaches in front of the seaside village of Theoule-sur-Mer are also sandy, beautifully kept and offer great views across the bay to Cannes. Snack kiosks and showers are available on most beaches.
The ski stations of Greoliere, Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are between 1 and 2 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!
Getting around, a car is really a necessity from here, but once in the town of Mandelieu-la-Napoule, you have a good bus and train service with a great network along the coast and further inland. From here you can travel in either direction, to Cannes, Nice & Monaco or the other way to St Raphael.

"Lovely well kept villa"
Nice modern villa with great views to the sea overlooking la napoule. Well equipped and maintained, needed some more fans as no air con and it was very hot. Great location for exploring the coast. A car is essential, although distance wise it is close to the town it is up a very steep hill with windy roads and no short cuts. Had a lovely holiday and would definately recommend this villa.

"Excellent villa with stunning views from the patio"
This villa is excellent, with views to die for from the patio - Esterel mountains, right down to the med. Pool and Patio are not over=looked in any way. Cannes is about 20 mins away, and we would advise taking the coast round rather than the auto route. The town of Mandelieu La Napoule, especially down by the sea front/port is beautiful. It's about 10 mins in the car. The villa is in a gated Domaine, with electronic gates to get in and out, so very secure. Many of the neighbours are owners, next door is an Italian owner for example. 3 bedrooms, which each have double beds in them (no singles). The kitchen is 'fully equipped' - not like some French villas! - even has a kettle & mugs! Note - the garage will not take a car. This is one of the best villas we have stayed in after many years of holidaying like this, as the owners have decorated it specifically to their tastes. Completely recommend it to families - although not too much - as we want to go back!!.
