The domain is located in the hills of La Colle sur Loup, only 15 minutes to the charming village of Saint Paul de Vence and 30 minutes from Nice Airport.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of this hill side retreat, whilst still benefitting from the proximity to the sparkling Mediterranean coast.   


The villa has been completely refurbished to a high standard, while still maintaining its historic charm. Indeed, these authentic walls once protected the royal family, as the villa served as Queen Elizabeth’s hunting retreat.

The home was designed and furnished in a modern Provençal style with comfort in mind. It enjoys 3 floors of beautiful rooms. 

The gated entrance insures ultimate privacy. This leads to a large parking area, that can fit up to 8 cars, including 3 sheltered spots. 

Potted plants, fruit trees and trelises will accompany you to the several leveled terraces. 

A private elevator also is available as an alternative direct access to the villa. 


Living Area

The villa offers an open living plan, featuring a spacious living room and dining area. The interior space is bright with natural light and decorated to a high standard.

The large windows allow for an unparalleled view of St Paul de Vence and the Mediterranean sea from the comfort of the large divan. The seating area inside allows for 5 to gather comfortably in front of the entertainment set. Sit back and enjoy a movie on the flat screen TV, or simply marvel at the view.  

The authentic stone open fireplace stands in the corner and adds to the cosiness of this gorgeous home.

There are numerous outdoor dining and lounge areas for relaxation and entertainment, including the large covered terrace off the main living area, all of which benefit from the panoramic sea and hill views.

The large bay windows allows for easy access to the gardens and terraces which really allows guests to live both indoor and outdoors.


This holiday rental villa enjoys the added benefit of two adjacent kitchens, located in the west wing of the house. 

The first one, originally named the "summer kitchen", is perfectly organised around a tall darkwood table with comfortable seating for 6.

The rustic wooden beams and hardwood floors deliciously contrast with an otherwise sleek and sophisticated look, with dark cabinets and marble finishes. The brown color palette of the kitchen walls works brilliantly as a backdrop for the focus of the room: the stunning sea view one can observe from the large glass windows. 

Gorgeous and highly functional, it makes for a great area to spend one's time in, may it be to share a coffee or prepare some heavenly dishes. Amenities include a 5 ring gas stove top, oven  & microwave, two fridges, large freezer and dishwasher.

A door at the back of the kitchen gives access to a sheltered terrasse, as well as access to the outdoor deck where the jacuzzi is located.

The second kitchen is directly next to the first one, and stands adjacent to the dining area. The rustic nature of this space is reminded throughrout: from the color of the stones, to the light tiles, to the color of the gorgeous stone kitchen island and the pendant lights. You will find these oriental lights follow through the house adding light and charm in every room. It is simple yet impressive with wonderfully chosen materials. The stone wall’s color is lighter than the rod iron framing the large arched window, therefore perfectly complementing one another.

Whilst the aesthetics of the kitchen interior provide a natural and minimalistic setting, it is still perfectly equipped. It enjoys a large 5 ring gas stove top and oven.

With plenty of counter top space and storage space, this kitchen ideally complements the first one. Its relaxed atmosphere sublimes the coziness of its neighbouring room. 

The large glass doors give access to the firewood storage area, as well as to a path up to the gardens, or down to the parking area.
