3. Luxury Amenities
Many villas in the South of France have plenty of luxury amenities including big pools, a Jacuzzi, and a large barbecue; ideal for beach parties and dinners in the afternoon sun on the terrace. For those who like to travel in style, why not rent a villa with a helipad? It’s definitely an easy and quick way to get around the French Riviera.
Luxury villas are usually situated outside of the major metropolitan cities, therefore, they are tranquil and the perfect place to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing holiday.
The South of France is an area with plenty of gorgeous scenery. Depending on your location, you will either view the stunning mountain ranges behind Nice, views of the bays in Villefranche and from many of the villas on the French Riviera, breath-taking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
Apart from the incredible views from the villas, the sea is a very short drive away. Expect no more than a 30-minute drive from your holiday abode. If you prefer to be closer to the sea, why not consider a luxury beach front villa in St Tropez or Cap Ferrat?
One of the biggest factors in the South of France is the weather. The French Riviera has such an incredible climate. It’s not too cold in the winter and in the summer, temperatures can reach over 30°C. Now that’s hot! There’s no better way to cool off from the summer heat than in the luxury of your private pool.
The areas around the luxury Provencal villas are charming and bursting with culture. You may visit the medieval villages of Mougins and Saint Paul de Vence, view the famous Picasso museum in Antibes, and create your own scent at the perfumery museum in Grasse. Staying in an area with so much history, gives an opportunity to experience many cultural outings.
Luxury villas have incredible facilities with the chance of you being able to relax and let a gourmet chef cook you light breakfasts and exquisite lunches. If you feel like going out, there are also plenty of local and Michelin star restaurants in the area to choose from.
