Villa La Provence, Juan-Les-Pins

Overview

La Provence has long been a favourite destination of distinguished guests such as writer Marcel Pagnol, entrepreneur Paul Ricard and performer Tino Rossi who all enjoyed this villa as a place of harmony and relaxation during the 1960s and 70s.

La Provence is also renowned for its art; paintings and statues tell you the memories of those old stones surrounding the fireplace. The delightful atmosphere is enhanced by an interior design theme of ancient woodland, handmade Persian rugs and a well-stocked library.

Testimonials

Thank you for a magical time in Antibes! Our stay last summer was nothing short of fabulous! We stayed in the villa for two weeks with family and friends. Villa la Provence was lovely, comfortable and perfectly situated for walking into town or to the beach.

The number of bathrooms in the villa was very important to us and extremely handy, since we had many young female guests and one or two bathrooms would not have been enough.

The pool area received a great deal of use as did the outdoor dining area. We hired Francine to make her amazing quiche and provide fruit and croissants 3 days a week. We may never have a better quiche in our lifetime! We also had Francine make dinner one night each week. She is a superb cook! Most evenings pre and post dinner were spent in the beautiful covered patio/lanai, enjoying wine.

I would recommend Villa La Provence to anyone who is looking for a lovely holiday in the South of France. Diane from Seattle, August 2010
