Les Chenes Verts is a very spacious and comfortable South of France holiday villa, set on a hillside with lovely views over the valley and across to the old village of Plascassier. It is just a 20 minute drive from the stylish and famous Cote d'Azur resorts of Cannes and Antibes and only 10 minutes from the lovely medieval villages of Mougins and Valbonne.
The villa has been tastefully renovated throughout with lovely light marble tiled floors. It is accessed via a country lane in a quiet location tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Riviera, but with the benefit of the South of France coast a short drive away.
Inside, the villa instantly gives the feeling of space with the accommodation spread over three floors, making it appealing to families holidaying together in the South of France.
The extensive grounds are over 3 acres in size and there is a large wooded area with a mixture of pine and oak trees which is a fantastic adventure area for older children to enjoy the great outdoors. There are also areas for the adults to enjoy some quiet time to relax away from the family.
The large infinity swimming pool and pool terrace is fenced with a child proof gate which gives added security.
A South of France villa ideal for a family holiday.

First class customer service! And excellent villa with help on hand for anything you need. Our adult children enjoyed the pool every day with their children and, when we were there, we found the house and gardens the perfect place to both relax with family and to reflect on recent events. In particular I liked having morning coffee with a few Petit Beurre biscuits, in the sun, at the table down past the pizza oven watching red squirrels, crested tits and treecreepers in the woods! Family A, South France Villas client - September 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful villa which we found a real "home from home" in terms of the care and attention to detail you have given to equipping it for guests of different tastes and ages. The air conditioning was especially welcome as respite from the heat and we all slept well each night after enjoying visits to various places in the area and many hours in the wonderful pool. We could not have had a better setting for our long awaited family get-together and my sons with their families were also most appreciative of everything. Hopefully we will have future visits to Les Chenes Verts as we have so much more to explore in the area.” We were sincerely very impressed by your beautiful home and would happily recommend it to anyone!” Angela, July 2019
We had a fantastic time, the house and pool were absolutely perfect for our two families. The house is the best equipped house we have ever stayed in. From consumables like washing up liquid and basic kitchen ingredients through to plastic plates etc for the pool and enough glasses for everyone! The beds were comfortable and the AC units were appreciated at bedtime! The pool was the highlight of course and enjoyed by all. We would definitely stay again. Wittet Family, South France Villas Client, July 2018
The villa was comfortable and well equipped. Secluded situation. Beautiful gardens and a large swimming pool. Excellent for families with children. The caretaker Fernando was very helpful on many occasions.Mrs B, South France Villas client July 2018
First time our family have been together for 9 years. Thank you to the Property Managers for all your help. Great villa, perfect in all areas - clean, tidy and everything in the right place. The grandchildren loved exploring the garden and playing with the equipment - table tennis and of course the wonderful pool! It was hard to drag ourselves away to see the sights of Nice! Walker Family, June 2017 - From the Guest Book.
Great time with children and grandchildren. Very nice villa and well equipped and with a wonderful pool. This all contributed to a memorable stay in Grasse!Schudel Family, June 2017
Just to say that we had the most wonderful time and did not go far, as the pool is just awesome!Evans Party, August 2016
We would feel happy to recommend this charming Villa. Our family thoroughly enjoyed a fabulous week there in wonderful accommodation and surroundings. The guardians Terry and Karen were extremely helpful and and accommodating throughout our stay. Les Chenes Vertes proved to be a perfect layout on its three floors for our family size and structure, we found it so spacious and relaxing. We enjoyed several evenings on the terrace with a glass of wine once the youngsters were asleep. Our beds were all very comfortable and had lovely bed linens, we found the kitchen extremely well equipped and the B-B-Q very easy to use. The grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the lovely pool, the table tennis and the freedom of the garden and its surroundings. We found the villas central position a great bonus, it was so easy to visit Valbonne, Mougins, Antibes, Grasse and Monte Carlo with so many lovely restaurants to choose from. The grandchildren also went go-carting,horse riding and to the water park, all of these amenities were within easy driving distance of the villa, and our five year old granddaughter had a great time in Grasse making her own perfume in one of the perfumeries. There was so much to fit into our week and for all of us it went far to quickly. So hopefully we will return in the near future perhaps for a longer stay next time. Pauline and Graham, July/August 2016
We’ve had a lovely week here and enjoyed some beautiful spring weather at Les Chênes Verts. The villa is excellently equipped and having Karen and Terry on hand to help with queries and directions is invaluable. The children have used the pool (in wetsuits) and spent happy hours playing table tennis and boules. With so many great places to visit nearby we’ve had lovely days at the beach, walking the Gorges-du-Loup and visiting the Maeght Foundation. Spring is a wonderful time to visit and we’ll definitely be back again. From the Housebook, April 2016
Will definitely be renting with you again, amazing service! Compliments to the owner he has a great property and service.Jonathan and family, August 2014
We had a wonderful two-week holiday at Les Chenes Verts. The villa is fantastic, so well-equipped and beautifully appointed. The pool area and the gardens are stunning. For us, the villa scored very highly in terms of the quality and quantity of the furnishings, kitchen equipment, loungers, barbecue etc. We also really appreciated all the smaller things and general attention to detail such as hand soap and tissues in each room, plenty of loo roll (!), crossword puzzles...the list goes on. It felt as is if a great deal of thought had gone into everything, and that certainly made our holiday a relaxing and enjoyable one. We really enjoyed visiting places nearby including Grasse, old Mougins, Valbonne and Monaco (by train).Thanks also the on-site 'gardiens', who were always there to help if needed. Their local knowledge and recommendations were invaluable and certainly added to our trip. We loved Les Chenes Verts and would love to return one day. Regards, Tracy, August 2014
