This entirely furnished 5 bedroom / 4 bathroom modern style villa is in a private domain in hilly Mouans Sartoux, near Cannes and Mougins in the French riviera. This triplex villa is spaciously spread over 3 floors, with its own garden and the presence of a concierge, taking care of the secured domain comprising other houses and a castle. Here you can enjoy access to a club in the domain with a large swimming pool, restaurant as well as tennis courts.
The garden level is the first to welcome you into the villa. All the rooms benefit from bright light thanks to the multitude of windows around the house, mainly exposed south on the garden and terrace, coupled to the local customary bright colors. You will find on this floor, amongst other luxuries, a lounge with large cane sofas, a fire place and a large screen TV with satellite CNN access for when you want to rest inside. Next door is the dining area, hiding the separate kitchen behind it, complete with all major appliances including an oven, a microwave and a dishwasher. The master bedroom is also on this floor.
The upper levels can be accessed via the spiral staircases, which gives privacy and comfort for their guests, especially the 3 bedrooms on the top floor with their own terrace overlooking the garden and the pool. There are 4 full bathrooms conveniently available around the house, each with their own shower / bathtub (the master bedroom even has a hydro-massage tub), and toilets. Each bedroom upstairs can adapt to your preferences as the usual two twin beds can be changed to a queen size bed.
Once you adventure outside, you will find the domain's swimming-pool waiting for you in the never-ending lawn garden, perfect to enjoy in region’s hot climate. The villa is also in a private domain (“Domaine de Castellaras le Neuf”), where you will have access to nothing less than a castle, as well as the domain’s tennis courts and restaurant.
The property is up the hills in Mouans Sartoux, near Mougins, an ideal vacation spot for exploring the south of France: the city of Cannes (10 km) and the charming countryside of Grasse (8 km). Although shops, cafés and restaurants are reachable by car, the main hub of the area is obviously Cannes, famous for its international film festival, and where many well-known stars or businessmen take their vacations. Once over there, find yourself in a big center of fashion stores and restaurants, not to mention the famous but crowded La Croisette Beach. And if you have your car, you can range far and wide on day trips alone: Italy is only 1 hour away. Aix en Provence is 90 minutes away as well. You will be happy to know that parking spaces can be found easily in front of the house, while nearby golf courses are accessible for the enthusiasts.
The Nice train station is served by the high-speed TGV (the "Train Grande Vitesse," only five hours to Paris), and its international airport (Nice-Côte d’Azur) with daily flights to and from New York. Otherwise most international destinations can be reached through a connection in Paris.

Having visited the South of France on and off for 17 or so years, I don't think you can find a better location, unless you are really dedicated to being on the sea. This is a beautiful villa with a fabulous view westward over Grasse, breathtaking sunsets and night-skies, a private pool and gorgeous gardens, in a domain that includes a chateau, tennis courts, two community pools, and a gardien. The house is open and comfortable, with a unique architectural style and plenty of rooms for large groups. We'll definitely be returning as often as possible.

They were exemplary tenants and we have no doubt that they will come back. They liked the furnished rental, took good care of it and returned it to us as clean and pleasant as we'd left it.
