Get away from it all on the French Riviera!

Set on a hillside in a residential area above the town of Antibes, this provençal villa (in a secure domaine) offers absolutely spectacular sea views over the Bay from Fort Vauban to Cap Ferrat . It was officially rated 5 Stars ***** by Atout France in 2018.

With plenty of patio areas, a jacuzzi hot tub for parents to sit and relax, a pool table, a fustable, a petanque court along with a wonderful garden and heated pool for the children to play in, VILLA CITADELLE is a great base for a family/friends party to spend some quality time together.

In a stunning location, this property, with air conditioning throughout, is spacious and cheerful, nicely furnished and decorated to retain the traditional Provencal atmosphère with a Mediterranean flair.

The piece-de-resistance here must be the ample outdoor living space, ideal for social gatherings around the barbecue in the pool-house or by the lovely outside patio enjoying the splendid, relaxing vista. A variety of colourful plants populate the villa’s terraced grounds, including oleanders, bougainvillea, palm and olive trees, providing the perfect setting in which to unwind.

The town of Antibes is only a short distance from this luxury villa, where you can enjoy excellent dining and the vibrant Riviera nightlife. It also boasts the highly recommended Picasso art museum. Antibes sandy beaches are just 15 minutes away. That's if you can manage to pull yourself away from the pool of course.

In fact, you can spend a day on the beach in Antibes or Juan-les-Pins and have lunch on the shore, alternatively you could browse the weekly markets in Valbonne, Antibes or Biot followed by some interesting sightseeing in St Paul de Vence, Eze or St Jean-Cap-Ferrat, visiting the magnificent Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild with its lush gardens. If travelling with children, your itinerary may include Marineland theme park and Aquasplash in Antibes, whilst other members of your party may prefer the boutiques or the glamorous seafront in Cannes, St Tropez or Monaco, all within easy reach.

Beautiful Antibes Villa!

I booked a girly trip here (ten of us) and it lived up to the amazing pictures. Just a half-hour drive from the airport, 10 min drive from town, and super close to a large carrefoure supermarket. Such a gorgeous villa, with everything you need for a large group. We had arranged trips out but ended up staying at the villa a couple of times, not wanting to leave the pool and hot tub! The garden was also gorgeous, with lemon trees etc. Sophie herself was incredibly helpful and thoughtful, and made our stay go so smoothly. The only problem was that we did not want to leave!! Thank you, Sophie!

The best holiday experience we have had

I cant gush enough about our experience and stay here. The place itself is immaculate, clean, really big, really well finished and so great to relax and use. It was very comfortable with a full house of people. The views are spectacular, night time overlooking the sea is incredible and words or pictures cant describe. the Pool area is huge, we ate out on the deck a few times. Now to the most important part, the host Sophie was such a special person. I truly cant say enough good words about her energy, kind spirit and total willingness to help and do everything (from bedding to an in house chef to catering to our timings and having everything perfect). She ensured our child's needs were all met, the floors were spotless and she was just warm and lovely. We will for sure be back and primarily because of her and how she keeps the property.

When you enter this property, the views and amenities are just breath taking. The master suite on the lower level was my favorite, but each bedroom provided its own unique modern feel. When we had questions Sophie responded right away to ensure all of our needs were met! We appreciate her for caring for our needs and providing such a lovely space for us to live for the time we were there.

Sophie and her fabulous villa are not to be missed. It was all we could’ve hoped for and more for our girls weekend on the Riviera! The house is spacious, stylish and has absolutely everything you might ever need. The rooms are comfortable and clean. And to top it all off Sophie is an excellent host- so responsive and we felt she genuinely wanted us to enjoy her house. I have stayed in other air bnb house where the host has made he feel a little on edge, Sophie was so relaxed which made us more relaxed being there. 5 stars. I will be back!!

Sophie was a great host!She was easy to communicate with, very friendly & helpful. The house was even better then on the pictures, we really enjoyed staying there (7 adults, 2 kids & 2 babys). The house has an amazing view especially during the night. We can highly recommend the location & would stay there again.

Extremely friendly and heplful host. The villa was amazing and more than the pictures can describe - this is must see thing, specially the pizza oven in the pool house. Location and the view just on point. Short ride to Cannes and Nizza, so you can take one day trip to citys and come back to villa to gain your stamina back in the pool or yacuzi.

Glorieux avis laissé sur Airbnb

This is a wonderful luxury house, looked after by marvellous hosts. The house is in a gated area, very quiet, with remote controls for gate to the area and again to the house. The house had the most fabulous view over the bay. There is a garage for the car below, with a laundry room. Upstairs a very spacious kitchen and sitting room with huge tv. Kitchen has all mod cons. We played loads of table football and pool in separate pool room. Everywhere very clean. Steps down from house to gorgeous pool with pool house. Pool house perfect for couple. Loved sitting in spa with all jets blowing. There are lots of floating lilos etc for the pool. Aircon was v effective everywhere. We had very good communication with Sophie and her husband. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Cannot recommend this place more highly. We loved cycling around the area and the canonying in gorge du loups. Also visiting hilltop towns.

Commentaire laissé sur Airbnb

Sophie was a terrific host - responsive, helpful (she laid in essentials for us before we arrived) and flexible. The property itself is lovely. The pool is a great size, and the pool house makes it a really great space to spend a lazy afternoon (or day!) The house is well kept and spacious. All the bedrooms were comfortable and pleasant. Would recommend.
