Location is very important in St Paul de Vence.
Villa Seburga is a hillside villa at a higher altitude than the village itself. It is important to note that, unlike many St Paul villas, it is not in the valley below with limited views or in the eastern quarter (which is separated by a 4-lane highway running between Cagnes-sur-Mer and Vence - as well as being 15 minutes drive away). Villa Seburga is an easy stroll into St Paul-de-Vence.
The views of the sea and countryside from Villa Seburga are spectacular. The villa is not overlooked from either above or below - offering secluded tranquility at a pleasant altitude away from the crowds and traffic.
The swimming pool at Villa Seburga is heated for you to enjoy from May to October. It has a diving board. It is the focal point of the villa, just a few metres away from the terraces and directly accessible through several French windows.
You will feel in 'seventh heaven' as you gaze out to sea over the infinity edge!
The rooms are well spaced out, allowing guests in your party to enjoy their own private space - then come together in the large communal dining and living areas - both indoors and outdoors.

"We are more than happy here at your beautiful home. It is a wonderful place, best we've stayed at."
"Thank you, from all of us, for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We’ve been to the South of France many times, but the children voted this visit their best holiday ever! We had such a lovely time.
"Unlike some rentals what you see in the pictures is what you get, and more."
"The bedrooms were absolutely super, all en suite with lovely furnishings and fittings. The art work both in the house and round the pool (statues) was lovely. Everything, right down to the kitchen chinaware, was top quality. The generosity was unparalleled in my experience - there was even a chilled bottle of champagne awaiting us on our arrival. The place was kept scrupulously clean and nothing was too much trouble. However, aside from such practical details, the main thing for us all was the beauty of the villa and surroundings, the ambiance, the good feelings that were engendered. I have stayed in rented villas on many occasions, but I have to say this one beats them all. I highly recommend it; you will not be disappointed."
"All of us were thrilled with the holiday. People could not believe it when they got there. The photos are good but the reality is even better."
"Villa Seburga is an extremely comfortable and well-appointed property. It is a luxurious home-from-home in a beautiful location. The property is designed to make the most of the spectacular views, and we certainly spent much of our time sitting on the terrace or by the lovely infinity pool. This is a really wonderful holiday home!"
"The heated infinity pool is a joy to swim in. The view from the pool and terrace of the surrounding villages extending down to the Mediterranean was delightful."
"Everything was just perfect. The property is wonderful and everything is very clean and nice and "the pool" ...lovely!!!"
"To say simply that we had a wonderful stay is an understatement. Many people abuse a rental property as they do hotel rooms. I hope those people will stay elsewhere and leave Villa Seburga for those of us whom will appreciate its nice furnishings and overall beauty!" TripAdvisor Review Jun 18 2013.
"Great secluded pool area and all amenities catered for. If you want anything better you need to rent a palace." TripAdvisor Review Sep 03 2012.
Having spent hours researching appropriate villas in the South of France for our extended family of ten we plumped for Villa Seburga - we were not disappointed! Our experience started after contacting the owner Michael - he responded by return with a detailed plan and description of the villa, room by room, and was most patient in answering all our questions. The scene was set and, as August approached, our excitement levels began to rise!
After a great journey down to Saint Paul - some by car and others by air into Nice - we arrived at the villa around 5pm and were met by the lovely Marzenna and her English husband Jerry. The gardens, pool and house were immaculate and exceeded our expectations. There followed supper at La Terrasse sur Saint Paul, recommended to us by Michael, within walking distance of the villa - excellent food and our holiday had begun.
The villa is extremely well appointed; beautifully and tastefully furnished; and extremely well equipped - the bathroom essentials were a very nice touch, as was the bottle of champagne in the fridge and the bunch of roses. Air conditioned throughout it was a real sanctuary for the non sun worshippers and made sleeping at night easy. However, the highlight had to be the heated infinity pool and terrace area. The diving board was a huge hit and the children perfected their diving skills - the end of the holiday diving competition was fierce! We look forward to the new water slide when we return!
Day to day living was easy, with E.Leclerc and a patisserie within a short drive. For those wishing to go further afield, Monaco and Nice are great trips out.
As we left on the final morning our grandson Charlie said: "that was my perfect holiday" and from a very cool 11 year old boy, that is accolade indeed!
We stayed at Villa Seburga from July 30-August 20, 2016.
It was two vacations in one! The first part was with our children and grandchildren and the second part was with good friends.
It was perfect for both groups. A sprawling, comfortable villa and roomy enough for all of us! 9-11 people all fit without any crowding.
The views were amazing from almost anywhere in the villa. We spent most of our time in and around the exquisite pool/pool area. There were comfortable lounges and floats and other pool toys for the children. Everyone adored the large infinity pool! Velvety warm water overlooking magnificent land and sea views.
We had breakfast, lunch and dinners in the villa and the fully equipped kitchens were a pleasure to cook in as well as the charcoal grill poolside. We shopped at a large nearby market and local farmers markets.
The bedrooms were large with en suite bathrooms and very comfortable beds.
Our master bedroom/bathroom was a true haven with dreamlike views. The weather was lovely but the air conditioning was great for the couple of humid nights we had.
We walked to Saint Paul de Vence many times which allowed us to eat all the fresh delicious cuisine the area offers. We drove to a number of surrounding towns for visits and beach days and excellent dinners! Oh, the boulangeries and patisseries! We loved the nearby Macht Foundation and Matisse Chapel. We enjoyed Vence, Saint Paul de Vence, Nice, Grasse, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Antibes, Villefranche and the list goes on. Great location from which to drive and train everywhere! And then we got to come home to our gorgeous, fun and easy living villa!
Our lovely, warm and hardworking housekeeper, Marzenna, kept things in tip top shape 2x a week and there was washer and dryer and racks to hang wet swimsuits. Beautiful spacious main floor living and dining room and large terraces for outdoor dining. Tons of movies to watch and many books to read. Everything anyone can need for a perfect stay.
Thank-you Michael and Denise-we truly wish to return and do it all over again!
We have just returned to UK after one week in Villa Seburga having taken the whole premises. We were 10 adult friends and had planned to breakfast on coffee and patisseries and eat out in the evenings. However, the villa is in such a stunning location and the pool is so inviting that we changed our eating plans and enjoyed salads and BBQs by the pool or on the mid-level terrace most lunch times and evenings.
This is a brilliantly planned and presented villa with stunning views over Cote D'Azure and out to Cap Antibes. In addition, every last little detail has been thought of from I-pod docking stations to orange squeezers and BBQ charcoal to Nespresso coffee pods! Well worth a visit although I am loath to recommend it since it might be booked up the next time we want to visit!
Michael, the owner, could not have been more helpful prior to booking. He sent a full description of the facilities, rooms, layout and other details of the local amenities so that it made our holiday planning and booking very easy. Also a big thank you to Marzenna and Jerry for looking after the villa during our stay and for the lovely welcome we got from Marzenna on arrival.
Thank you Denise and Michael for the use of your beautiful home. It was more than we hoped for...more than the pictures ever lead us to expect!
The amenities (from knowing we would not run out of toilet paper, dish soap, the water toys, towels, bedding, IPod speakers, and on and on) were so much more than we have ever had at any other rental. How clean everything was was a treat.
Villa Seburga was in the perfect place for our 3 generations to visit this wonderful area of France and have a quiet calm place to return to each day to relax.
Jacqui, the chef, cooked 6 dinners for us in the villa. Each meal was perfect!! All of what Jacqui made was perfectly cooked. Each meal had either a salad or vegetable or both. Every one of us thought each meal was fantastic. We oohed and aahed over each dish. So 7 people liked each and every dish!! The cost of a chef and dining at Villa Seburga was still less than we paid out at any restaurant. More than that, enjoying great meals in your lovely house was more than worth it to all of us!!
Again thank you so much for the use of your wonderful home.
This property is truly 5 star luxury in every respect. Nestled in the hills above Nice, within walking distance (albeit a bit steep in places if you decide to walk) of the lovely village of St Paul de Vence, this remarkable villa has everything that the discerning traveller could possibly want. The owners (Michael and Denise) are such lovely, hospitable people and provide everything you could want for when travelling. Very few villas in our experience have such luxurious fittings and provisions; no need to provide toiletries, dishwashing/laundry detergent, it is all provided; and a housekeeper comes in twice a week to do the cleaning. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need, spotlessly clean with Miele appliances and Portmeirion crockery. If you don’t want to eat in, there is an excellent restaurant (l’Olivier Rouge) on the corner of the main road up to the villa; or in the village close by. The private heated infinity–edge swimming pool is just superb, the view across the valley is remarkable and the gardens are beautiful. We had a lovely week here and were very sad to leave. You just do not normally find this high standard of luxury in a rented villa; it was more like being in a 5 star resort but in a private and peaceful villa. Highly recommended for a lovely holiday.
I want to thank you, from all of us, for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We’ve been to the South of France many times, but the children voted this visit their best holiday ever! We had such a lovely time. Whilst it wasn’t as hot as it has been in other years, the weather really wasn’t an issue and was generally kind to us.
Thank you, too, for all the extras you left – hugely appreciated, especially the Champagne which was delicious, and much enjoyed. Marzenna was quite wonderful, too - I could easily have wrapped her up and brought her home with me, if I didn’t think she’d miss being on the Cote d’Azur ...
It’s hard to think how such perfection could be improved – you really have thought of everything. It made our holiday SO pleasant, and so easy to settle into new surroundings quickly. We’ve come home feeling fit and well, and slightly unsettled as we know where we’d rather be.
The beach at Cagnes-sur-Mer is about 10 minutes by car. There are numerous beaches along the coast within 20-30 minutes drive.
A car is recommended. Nice airport is about 15 minutes by car.
St Paul-de-Vence is 15-20 minutes walk, or 3 minutes by car. Vence 10 minutes by car. Nice 20 minutes. Cannes and Monaco 30 minutes. Italian border 40 minutes.
