Mas des Magnolias is a private villa near Valbonne with a friendly, welcoming ambience, tasteful furniture, exposed ceiling timbers, mellow terracotta floors and cool white walls. It enjoys a peaceful location with distant views from the main terrace and several rooms, towards the Mediterranean and L'Esterel hills.
A wonderful covered terrace with outdoor dining and built-in charcoal barbecue offers easy outdoor living next to the pool, allowing you to relax whilst keeping a watchful eye on children as they enjoy the water. There is also an original, 50-year old pizza oven if you fancy trying that out! A Boules pitch in the garden provides further family entertainment.
The small shopping area of Opio is just 15 minutes walk downhill - beware the return, uphill journey! Here you have a full selection of shops and a restaurant. Explore the charm and delight of the Cote d'Azur, where mountains, hilltop villages and chic Mediteranean towns are within easy reach. For golf enthusiasts, the nearest course is just 1.5 miles, but there are 10 courses within 30 - 45 mins of this private villa near Valbonne!
Golf and tennis enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice for places to play near this comfortable villa, with the Vignal tennis courts close at hand and the 18-hole golf course in Chateauneuf. To cater for young children, safe playgrounds and open spaces are also available. There is a lovely restaurant called Le Mas des Geraniums in nearby Opio - just a 20 minute walk from the villa. I would definitely recommend a visit to the lovely town of Valbonne, especially to the weekly Friday market, then a quiet coffee in the “Café Latin” or under the shade of the arches on the main square. One of my favourite restaurants is “La Bergerie”, which has live music in the evenings. Grasse is a fascinating city: why not visit the atmospheric old town and create your own perfume in one of the factories there? With the beach only 20 miles away, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy on this holiday.

Spacious comfortable villa with fabulous views.
Spacious comfortable villa with fabulous views. You have to use the car for everything - boulangerie, epicerie, charcuterie and supermarket 5 mins by car in Opio but you wouldn't walk there. Isn't in Chateauneuf - may be within its boundary but really between Opio and Grasse.
Super Holiday and villa was of very high quality
Overall we had a super holiday. The villa was of very high specifications. Excellent standard of maintainance to meet swiss owner's needs. I had thought the villa would be closer to the village and shops.
