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.

"Beautiful villa"

The villa was a perfect destination for us. We were able to stay for a whole month and it really felt like a home away from home. We loved that it was tucked into the hills and so close to such a lovely little village (Gattieres) offering great dining, convenient food shopping and kind people. It was also very easy to get to Nice itself and we were able to explore a lot of the beautiful surrounding villages. The house itself was in wonderful condition and was very comfortable, offering all of the amenities of home. The pool area had beautiful views as did the outdoor dining area. We really enjoyed cooking 'a la Plancha' as well! We will definitely be returning to Villa Minou in the future.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review AM037B Villa Minou - feedback it greatly appreciated by us and the Owner. We very much hope you will use South France Villas, when booking your next holiday in the South of France. Alissa Knight, Managing Direction, South France Villas.
