The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Among the Cote d'Azur villages none is as alluring as Valbonne, the former Roman settlement of Valis Bona or 'beautiful valley'. Nestling along the banks of the River Brague, Valbonne is defined by shaded streams and the forested hills of the Parc Natural with the mountains of the pre-Alps rising in the background. Unlike many villages of the Cote d'Azur which follow the mountain contours, Valbonne is constructed on a grid pattern, in true Roman fashion, enclosed by old town walls. Within the walls are picturesque streets of ancient stone houses, differentiated by their wooden studded doorways and painted shutters. At the heart of the grid is the Place des Arcades, a magnificent medieval cobbled town square surrounded by wide arches under which cool bars and gourmet restaurants compete for attention. The lively restaurant scene of Valbonne becomes a magnet for holiday makers staying at the exclusive private villas dotted among the neighbouring villages of Opio, Roquefort and Plascassier.
Villa Tameye is located at the end of a peaceful residential lane about 1km or 15 minutes walk into the centre of the delightful Côte d'Azur village of Valbonne.
A very picturesque medieval town with narrow streets and traditional stone and painted houses, Valbonne is surrounded by National Park. There is a good ion of local shops as well as galleries and artisanal workshops and about 15 restaurants and numerous cafes and bars. Friday is market day when the village comes alive with hundreds and small stalls selling artefacts, clothes, jewellery and wines and cheeses of the region. Once a month the village hosts the region's brocante bringing together local antique and bric-a-brac dealers from around the region.
Ideally situated between the Alps and the Mediterranean, Valbonne benefits from easy access to the mountain villages of the interior and is only 15 minutes from Cannes, Antibes and the beaches of the coast and half an hour from Nice airport. Activities include golf (9 courses within 15 minutes), tennis (3 local clubs as well as municipal courts), riding, cycling and fabulous walks along the River Brague, in the "Parc National de Valmasque".
