Logistically, the property couldn't be better situated – just twenty minutes from the ultra efficient Nice Cote D'azur airport, whilst in the opposite direction about 15 minutes from the centre of the cosmopolitan city of Nice.
Villa Hill is a rural location set in the mountains above Nice over looking beautiful countryside yet still close enough to the main places such as NIce , Cannes and Monaco.
A ten minute drive will also lead you to the A8 autoroute which to the West offers relatively short drives to Cannes (30 mins) and beautiful St Tropez (1hr 15mins), whilst to the East you can explore wonderful places which include Villfranche, Beaulieu , Eze and Monte Carlo.
The equally picturesque Italian Riviera is also less than fifty minutes drive away – and a day out to San Remo is highly recommended.
It is also worth noting for the super active that the mountains of the Southern Alps are also just an hour's drive North where one can enjoy mountain biking and walking activities during the summer as well as excellent local skiing in winter, in the winter you can also get the ski train that leaves daily.
