5 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Opio, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Once the home of one of Napoleon’s last descendants, Villa l’Aimant (“The Magnet”) is a half-century-old, stone-built, sophisticated and fully-furnished 4-bedroom villa in the hamlet of Opio, within the ‘golden’ triangle formed by Nice, Cannes & Grasse.

Built on seven south-facing terraces dotted with old olive trees, l’Aimant is your perfect home base. Between the main residence and its quaint poolside guest house 3 terraces lower, the property comfortably & luxuriously accommodates 8 (possibly a few children in addition).

Villa l’Aimant is here to be your sanctuary… your home away from home. It’s been just that to our family for over 35 years, and it can be yours as well.

In 2014, a comprehensive renovation was completed. The main house offers 3 refurnished bedrooms, 3 renovated bathrooms plus 2 separate upgraded toilets....

A really special home in a stunning part of France! From our first contact with our prospective hosts to the time we closed the front door for the final time, this experience was virtually faultless. The pre-stay information was all-encompassing; the house comfortable, well-equipped and...More

This property is just a short - 3-5min from historic Chateauneuf-de-Grasse and Valbonne - 10-15min from the Perfume Capital Of The World, Grasse - 20-25min from Cannes' La Croisette (think Film Festival) - 50-60min ride to Monaco, and - about 30min to either Nice or Cannes-Mandelieu airports The Provence-Alpes/Cote d’Azur (PACA) region offers an abundance of wonderful choices. A modest sampling: - Escape for lunch/dinner to Valbonne’s 15th century Place des Arcades (5-10min) - Visit Fragonard, Molinard, Galimard or other perfume factories in Grasse (15min) - Be breathless at Gourdon's breath-taking views of the region and the Mediterranean. This car-free mountain-top village was featured Les Miserables of 2012 (20min) - Do The Artists' Tour

Renting a car (most likely from Nice Airport, the nearest big airport) is recommended to most optimally enjoy Villa l'Aimant and its utterly gorgeous surroundings. The house accommodates 4 cars for parking, although we can also recommend an excellent local taxi service. Uber also works here to some degree.
