About Raymond and Sharon Everall.

We bought the Villa in 2003, it was almost derelict, but in the most beautiful location , after spending many family holidays in the south of France it was our dream to one day purchase a property there. We first visited Saint Paul in 2002 after dinning at La Colombe do'r, Saint Paul being close to the Airport and Nice was the perfect location as, although being semi rural it is close to all amenities.

Raymond and Sharon Everall. purchased this villa in 2004

Why Raymond and Sharon Everall. chose Saint Paul de Vence

We had spent a lot of time looking for our perfect holiday home, our first priority was the location and views , we wanted a sea view, the villa has so many beautiful views from every window.

We are a family of four and lived in the villa for two years from 2004 to 2006.It was a wonderful experience for our whole family and the villa is still filled with many happy memories.

What makes this villa unique

Villa 8 is the only detached villa on the south side of the Domain Du Piol , its own private garden , Quiet on this private secure gated domaine and enjoys all day sun .

My wife and I restored the villa in early 2004, and continue to maintain every year with decoration, new bedding and towels are bought on a regular basis and so to maintain a high standard for our guests and ourselves. The views from this villa are breathtaking , looking down the St Paul valley to the sea , and to the mountains and sunsets . St Paul De Vence is an historic village full of art shops and gallaries and interesting architectural features and culture just a short walk or drive .

Delightful, peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned (after an extended stay in Nice thanks to BA) from this charming villa. St.Paul de Vence is a beautiful part of France - Antibes and Cannes just a drive away if you need a city/town.

The villa is perfect for two - everything you need with stunning views and absolute peace and quiet. Once we've recovered from our BA experience we will be looking to see when we can return.

A lovely little place perched on the mountainside overlooking wooded valleys and the sea

  • 4 of 5

Perhaps a little smaller than we expected but fabulously clean, delightfully decorated and situated in an excellent position for access to the south of france.

Very restful and just what we needed.

Bijou property with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this small but charming and well appointed property. It was as described and very clean. The well shaded outdoor dining area was a real bonus. The shared pool was beautiful and never too crowded. It is worth mentioning however that to access the pool from the house involves two flights of steps.

Our host provided us with useful information in advance including clear directions from the airport. It would have been helpful if this had included directions to the nearest supermarket (very close by car) and it's opening times. We were slightly disappointed to find that there was no spare toilet roll and insufficient dish washer tablets etc.

St Paul de Vence is stunning but very busy. We would recommend La Colle sur Loup for quieter local shopping, restaurants and a beautiful shady walk by the River Loup.

A lovely villa and excellent base for exploring the Cote d'Azur

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week in the villa at the Domaine du Piol. After days on the beach or visiting Riviera highlights such as Monaco, Cannes, Antibes and Nice it was so nice to return to the quiet and relaxing villa. Only a few minutes away, St Paul de Vence has some nice restaurants set amongst beautiful old buildings; alternatively eating al fresco in the villa garden was always enjoyable.

A nice pool and great views topped a delightful week in a well maintained and stylish villa.
