This luxury villa with large private salt-water pool nestles in the hills above Nice and is literally only 10 minutes' drive from the airport. The views are fabulous with the river Var winding its way through the valley towards the estuary stretching down to the sea and at night it is simply magical to watch the distant glittering town lights.  The owner's jokingly call it 'Cartier Valley'.  

The villa has had a complete re-modernisation and overhaul in 2012 and is decorated in a sophisticated understated style. Every detail has been thought through to allow for an easy going holiday. Air-conditioned throughout, it has Wi-fi and internet TV. With it's 4 bedrooms and 4 large luxury bathrooms, 12m salt water pool and large pool side terrace, 3500m2 of terraced Mediterranean garden full of palm trees and 'parasol' pines this is an ideal place to relax after the hustle and bustle of Nice.

The property is on two levels - the ground floor level with an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room giving on to the pool terrace and 2 bedrooms and a garden floor level (villa is on a hill) with 2 further bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  

In the high season it sleeps 9 people comfortably with plenty of room for everyone to find their own space: from the sleepy double hammock to outdoor ping pong or a game of pétanque with the first aperitif.

(In the Low Season prior to June and after September the villa is available to rent for 2 to 4 people - just using the 2 ground floor bedrooms - see Ref: AM037B).

Villa Minou is ideally located - 3km from the centre of the friendly hamlet of Gattières, which dates back to the 14th century - it has a couple of delightful restaurants, an excellent bakery, a small supermarket, a pharmacy as well as a cafe and a post office, a flower shop and a garage.  The charming town of Vence is only 14 kms away, and it takes only 10 minutes to drive down to Nice and its town beaches, the Promenade des Anglais, its beautiful waterfront art nouveau buildings like the landmark Hotel Negresco, its multitude of fantastic cafes, restaurants, markets and boutiques.
