Elegant Cote d'Azur villa rental - Villa Corail is a stylish villa which enjoys a truly spectacular location above Villefranche, towering over the sea and the entire coast between Cap d’Antibes, Nice and Le Cap Ferrat. If you dream of waking up each morning to breathtaking views, and ending each day dining al fresco as the sun sets over the Mediterranean sea, then this villa is for you.
Built in a classic style and furnished with period pieces, this elegant Cote d'Azur villa has undergone some renovations in recent years, yet retaining its 'old fashion' look. Villa Corail’s layout makes the most of its privileged south-facing position, with large French doors in every room, ample terraces and lush vegetation. Tall cypress and fruit trees, olive groves, as well as bougainvillea, mimosa and lavender help create pleasant, shady and colourful areas in the garden.
Guests staying at Villa Corail will be able to visit beautiful seaside towns along the coast, sampling delicious seafood specialities and excellent wine in Villefranche sur Mer or Cap Ferrat. The Grimaldi Palace in Monaco is a popular destination, only 20 minutes away, and so is the charming stronghold of Eze, perched at the top of a steep rock, built in the 14th century against the Saracen pirates. The Italian border is only a few miles away so why not spend a day on the Ligurian Western Riviera, famous for its pleasant mild climate, food and wide variety of flowers?
