What an amazing and nestling property! We had rented a different house which was such a far cry from what was advertised that we had to leave it. Luckily, Villa Bellevue was available.
Not only did Cato respond immediately and rented it to us at a moment's notice, he also ensure the house was cleaned thoroughly prior to our arrival and that a concierge arrived to great us. The concierge was available and responsive throughout our stay, able to deal with queries (e.g. wifi) and issues (e.g. bbq gas running out).
The house benefits from truly and literally breathtaking views, a fantastic kitchen that was the stage to many breakfasts and dinners, a great balcony with grill that hosted our dinners (overlooking the bay) and lovely pool that was the playground for adults and kids alike.
The location is excellent as well. Private and secluded at the top of a mountain (with peaceful, beautiful mountain hiking and running trails up the road), but 15 minutes from town with restaurants and amenities close by (boulangerie run every morning).
Its the sort of place you never forget. Cato, Ben and Villa Bellevue turned a vacation that started a disaster to a holiday of a lifetime.
We can't wait to come back!
Very large villa with an amazing view. Stunningly located near the top of a private hill in a gated community. Incredibly attentive owner who did everything he could to make sure everything was right for us. It is a little expensive but unfortunately everything in the area is! The villa is very spacious but just be aware only six of the bedrooms are furnished. It sleeps twelve in these six rooms and the basement has two blow up mattresses available for extra guests. I believe the villa has only recently been available to rent and little things such as an instructions folder; towel rail in the bathrooms; extra pool umbrellas would be useful and I'm sure will be forthcoming with future rentals. I can thoroughly recommend the chef who is available on demand to make delicious evening meals using fresh market produce. It's a place to relax, enjoy the views and escape the rest of the world!
When we first arrived at the villa, we were greeted kindly by the concierge who toured us around the entire villa. I don't think we would've been able to find our way around otherwise! The villa was very spacious with a great kitchen, huge living area, many bedrooms, a pool table, elevator, and beautiful outdoor porch and pool area. The view overlooking Theoule sur Mer was breathtaking and something we will never forget. The weather was gorgeous and in the villa it was impossible to have a bad day. We spent a large chunk of our stay lounging by the pool although we went into Cannes for one day via train. The train station is a 10-15 min walk down the hill from the house and the train was only 15 min into the centre of Cannes. The owner is very nice and made sure that we had the best stay possible. Thank you for a great trip!
What can I say.....the Villa was everything we were looking for and more. There were 12 of us in our party so quite a large number to cater for but you could have double that number in this Villa and still have more than enough room.
The Villa is situated nearly at the top of a hill, in a gated community (which definetly added to the feeling of exclusivity) which made for some of the most spectacular views across the hills, sea front and ocean! The balcony allowed you to take full advantage of this view, it's where we spent most evenings. Days were spent lazing by the pool which was perfect, very large in size, a beautiful temperature and with very comfy sun loungers. The pool gets the sun all day which was ideal.
Inside the Villa was spotless. The newly refurbished kitchen catered for our every need and the needs of the private chef that we hired ( on recommendation from the Villa owner!).
The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds themselves extremely comfortable. The showers were brilliant and bathroom areas were very clean.
The Villa also has its own lift which was extremely useful for moving luggage from floor to floor.
The surrounding area is just beautiful and highly worth visiting.
The concierge could not have been more helpful! He even did a food and drink shop for us which was waiting on our arrival. The villa is situated a little bit away from local amenities so this was very handy. He was always contactable if need be.
The owner himself was the the perfect host! He gave lots of advice on the area and he even went out of his way to book several things for us which included resturants and our chef. We changed our planes several times before they were confirmed and he was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The only disappointment was that we didn't get to meet him in person to thank him!!
