Description from owner


Villa Olivade is a one-bedroom Provençal villa situated on the beautiful, privately gated, Domaine du Piol. Domaine du Piol's elevated position gives it unrivalled views to snow capped mountains and the sea. The villa benefits from the sun starting in the early morning and throughout the day until it sets directly in front of the west facing balcony. Throughout the day, you can enjoy the sunshine and views from either the balconies, the terrace or the sun deck. All of which are on different levels and all offer those essential, amazing views of the Cote d’Azur.

The balconies, large terrace and lower garden area are all private and exclusive to Olivade. No other property on the domaine offers the same amount of privacy or views.

Villa Olivade Features: The villa is beautifully appointed and decorated throughout with stylish furnishings, marble bathroom, super-king wooden bateau-lit bed, quality kitchenware, air conditioning and WiFi.

You have a choice of areas for dining either inside or out including either our balcony on the top level or beneath the pergola on the terrace. There are many pretty spots to sit outside in the gardens and enjoy a glass of wine all offering different views either to the sea, mountains or surrounding area and villages.

There is a large, shared swimming pool on the Domaine with views to the sea.

Parking is right outside the villa. The parking is covered which is essential in the summer.

The Côte d'Azur: The A8 which runs along the Cote D'Azur is just 10 minutes from Domaine du Piol and is your fast track to the most famous coastline in the world! Destinations such as Nice are just 15 min, Cannes 30 min, Eze 25 min, Monaco 30 min, Menton and the Italian border 35 min, .... the list goes on.

Heading out beyond Saint Paul there are many beautiful villages such as Vence, Tourette Sur Loup, Gordon and Grasse as well as famous institutions such as the Maeght Foundation, Ville Emprussi de Rothchild and National Parks like the Mercantour and Massif de l’Esterel.

“Superb villa with stunning views”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2013

An outstanding villa within a private gated community provides an exceptional spot to relax and unwind. Set amid fantastic countryside, the extensive and pleasing scenery is surpassed only by the exquisite backdrop of St Paul de Vence yet a 10-minute drive, and you are at the beach. The owners were particularly helpful prior to and during the holiday and provided detailed knowledge of restaurants and places to visit which were as good as, if not better than, described. I rarely offer feedback as I expect value for money but felt compelled to write about a truly exceptional villa and location. We hired a large scooter to explore the mountains surrounding the villa but felt equally relaxed on the Villa's terraces and balcony. The generous and warranted reviews by former guests proved an accurate description of a villa with commanding views. It was well equipped and was within 2 kilometres of two large supermarkets. A perfect retreat either for those wishing to lose themselves in the serenity of the hills or for a family wanting to be located next to a great pool or within a short drive of the beach. We will be returning next year.

Response from the owner Thank you very much for your great review! A scooter is a great way of getting to really see the area and getting out into the mountains which we always encourage guests to do. Sometimes it's nice to get away from the heat and crowds of the coast and ride or drive into the cool interior and seek out small villages with just one bar/restaurant with proper local food and bread. We're glad you took advantage of that and hope you enjoyed it. You are of course welcome back anytime. Thank you again David & Sally-Anne

“Location, location, location!”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

You wont find a better place for a self catering holiday. The villa is so close to the buzz of the Cote d'Azur in Cannes and Nice but in a quiet oasis. The views from Villa Olivade are absolutely stunning and the pictures do not do it justice. The villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We ate in more times here than we usually do because of the views from the terraces. We are golfers and found some really good golf courses nearby which weren't too extortionate. After a good (and warm) round of golf we loved going back to St Paul de Vence for a beer and glass of rose in the Café de la Place to watch the guys play boules. The walk into St Paul de Vence was as stated in the details as a leisurely 20minute walk and whilst uphill it wasn't too onerous even in the heat. The only warning I would give is that it is quite a tight windy road and the traffic can travel fast but David provided a torch for when its dark which I would definitely recommend you use it so the traffic can see you if you are walking home late.

“A lovely villa in a beautiful location - perfect place to unwind and relax”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2013

We stayed at the Villa Olivade for a week in July this year and what a beautiful place it is!. Nestling in the hills with amazing views all the way to Antibes, it has the feeling of being secluded yet not isolated. It is possible to walk to St Pauls de Vence town in 20 minutes, or just relax on the balcony, prepare your own meals and listen to the crickets at night. Its a perfect base for exploring the Cote d'Azur. The villa is extremely clean, comfortable and very well equipped and decorated. Its also very spacious with plenty of living area, with modern bathroom and kitchen. The pool was lovely, and not too busy. We will definitely be going back again.

Response from the owner Thank you very much for your review and of course we are delighted that you had a good holiday in Olivade. I must admit that the sound of the evening wildlife does add a calming ambiance when enjoying a drink or two on the balconies or terrace! Thank you again. David & Sally
