With the New Year just around the corner, it’s time to start planning your holidays for 2019! A top destination for the new year is France; a country that offers mouth-watering cuisine, world-class wines, breathtaking mountain views and dreamy coastlines. Its rich tapestry of landscapes, history and cities can make for a bewildering choice. Even more so, can be the search for a villa; one that will satisfy your need for luxury, privacy, simplicity and of course, location.
Fortunately, I have discovered an exquisite collection of luxury, fully serviced villas in France. One Authentic Properties’ portfolio of luxury villas and chalets are truly one of a kind. Each has been meticulously designed and built by the country’s top architects and interior designers, unrivalled in the levels of luxury and service that they provide. Completely unique and finished with a passion that is almost impossible to find elsewhere.
So, where to find the perfect French Villa ? The Côte d’Azur of course. This blissful, exciting, seductive and glamorous coastline is both relaxing and exhilarating in equal measures. A mesmerising landscape of cobalt waters, dramatic peninsulas and spectacular natural beauty awaits. As does a playground of world-class cuisine, elite beach parties, super yachts and unadulterated luxury.
One Authentic Properties owns five sizzling luxury villas on the Côte d’Azur. All are equal in splendour, luxury and service but each completely unique in vision and finish. You will undoubtedly have your favourite according to taste, but let’s start with the dazzling Villa Canoubwest. Located in a wonderfully private residential area of Saint Tropez, this stunning 5-bed luxury villa sits adjacent to Brigitte Bardot’s private mansion. Less than a moment’s stroll from the glistening waters of the Baie de Canebier, Villa Canoubwest is set amid 8,000sqm of verdant landscaped gardens and has its own 20m heated infinity pool. Its enclosed rear courtyard, expansive grounds, nearby mooring, spacious private parking and panoramic views make it a rare jewel on the Côte d’Azur.
Another dreamy choice of luxury villa near Saint Tropez is Villa Water’s Edge. Located in the town’s most prestigious private domain, Les Parcs, this beautiful waterfront property has direct access to the sea, a gorgeous infinity pool and the obligatory breathtaking views. It is gleaming, palatial and all things luxury with seamless indoor-outdoor living and extravagant terraces.
For luxury villas closer to Nice, you have three sublime options. Villas Mas De La Rube and La Gabbia are both located on the most prestigious piece of land in France, the Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat peninsula, whilst Villa Bayview perches nearby. All boast exceptional views of the magnificent Bay Villefranche with its bobbing yachts, warm aquamarine waters and pastel sunsets.
