A good garden is an oasis of calm in which we can truly relax, surrounded by lush, bountiful nature and the gentle sound of birds tweeting. For many the garden is a crucial feature when buying a house, yet when choosing a holiday villa to rent we often forget about it, carried away by the prospect of a swimming pool, beautiful views or a high-spec finish. But what if you could have it all? Here’s our roundup of the three best French Riviera rental villas with amazing gardens…
Villa Lila, Cap D’Antibes
Boasting a spacious 4500sqm of land, this exquisite 10-bed property is on a seriously grand scale, offering visitors both a main and guest house to enjoy. Every aspect is fitted out to the highest luxury standards. Encompassing a large heated pool complete with diving board and sun loungers, a fully-fitted gym and tennis courts all within its grounds, the sheer size of Villa Lila means all these attributes don’t sacrifice any of the beautiful greenery. Rise early one morning and challenge your family to a sunrise game of tennis at this French Riviera rental villa before settling down on the terrace for an indulgent breakfast – it will be a bonding experience you’ll remember for years to come.
Villa Gardenia, Eze-Sur-Mer
The aptly named 4-bedroom Villa Gardenia may be smaller than the last, but don’t be fooled into thinking the garden is any less incredible. Its generous 400sqm of living space is trumped only by its incredibly spacious 1000sqm of beautiful garden, with the property situated in the picturesque heights of Eze-Sur-Mer meaning stunning sea views are a given. You’ll also find a large heated swimming pool and terrace area with multiple seating options for outdoor dining and socialising. Position a sun lounger in perfect view of the glittering Mediterranean, grab a good book and spend the day in pure relaxation at this seaview French Riviera rental villa.
Villa Primrose, Cap Martin (Roquebrune)
A colossal 1500sqm of stunning gardens and lush pine trees awaits you at Villa Primrose. Step out of this luxurious 5-bedroom home and feel truly at one with nature; the tall trees will make you feel like you are wandering in your very own peaceful forest. Alongside the abundant greenery, this French Riviera rental villa has a swimming pool big enough to keep everyone happy, with an accompanying pool house. In the pool house, you’ll find a bar area, small kitchen, barbeque and fully-functioning pizza oven, meaning for true nature-lovers there really isn’t much need to ever leave the garden! Fire up the BBQ as the sun sets and invite your family and friends to join you in toasting to the good life.
