Situated in the hills of the breathtakingly beautiful and varied landscape of Cote D’Azur, the Villa is equidistant from the vibrant and exciting city of Nice and Cannes, the glamorous home of the international film festival.

Both towns run along the seaside with palm trees waving in the sea breeze and offer a variety of entertainment. For the ardent shoppers they also offer a wonderful selection of the latest fashions in clothes and other goods.
