About the local area
Local shops, boulangeries & restaurants can be found just 800 metres away in the village of Biot. This charming old hilltop village is very popular with tourists and has a busy main street with craft shops, a tourist office and cafes in the square. The village is most famous for its glassmakers and it is possible to visit the ‘verreries’ and their gift shops. The town of Antibes is also very close-by for a large supermarket and a greater selection of shopping.
Local markets are held on a Tuesday morning in the village of Biot and almost everyday in Antibes. Here you can choose from a selection of fresh fruit, vegetables, olives and cheese.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant – there is the nearby golf course at Biot, tennis (raquets available on request), fishing, karting, water sports and the beach. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found just 4kms away at the Plage de la Siesta and also at Antibes.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are approximately 1 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!
Getting around is easy from here; there is a regular bus service to Antibes and along the coast, with a bus stop approximately 300 metres from the villa. Trains also run along the coast and the nearest station is 4km away at ‘Gare de Biot’. A car would be useful here but not essential.
Sightseeing is endless; you are ideally placed between Nice and Cannes, and very close to the town of Antibes. Further inland the lovely old villages of Valbonne, St Paul-de-Vence and Mougins are close by. Other places of interest are The Port and Old Town of Antibes, Vallauris and its potteries, the glassmakers in Biot, the City of Nice and the hills and forests of the Alpes Maritimes region.

There is nothing not to love about this house and it`s gardens. Villa Valeriane is simply beautiful as are it`s gardens and swimming pool. It is furnished with light, comfy and modern furniture and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need and more. All the bedrooms are very comfortable as are the very modern and sleek bathrooms. The living area flows so nicely to the pool. We never wanted to leave the house ! It is very close to a lovely little shopping village and a short drive to beautiful Biot. We can`t wait to go again !! - Mrs L. from London, August 20.
Ideal, a lovely home well looked after by a caring and thoughtful owner. Pretty close to perfect – the pool, air conditioning, privacy and walking distance to Biot were the best features of the accommodation - Mr S. from Dorset, Aug 19.
The pool and the outside area was lovely, it also helped having air con in all the bedrooms, especially in the summer months. Perfect for a family of 6, great location and only 15 mins to the beach by car. Have used JDV a few times now over the years and have never failed to impress, will be using again for our next trip. - Mr B. from Hertfordshire, Aug 18.
........the house was great. Owners were very kind and pool was super - Mr J. from the USA, Aug 18.
Lovely house with good outdoor area for lounging around the pool. House is well situated with quick, although steep, walk into Biot. Biot itself has a good range of shops and restaurants - Mrs A. from Surrey, Aug 2016.
Excellent. Exactly like it was described on the website. I thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa. The contact Paul Rhodes was excellent. He replied quickly to emails and was on the end of the phone when needed. He helped sort out a high chair and cot for out 6 month old baby.(How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mrs B from Antrim, July 2016
It was perfect, 5* accommodation. The pictures really don`t do it justice, I would suggest some new pictures ASAP. Air con, heated pool, fantastic views, comfortable beds, parking the list goes on. And only 25min drive to the south, Cannes, Monaco or Nice. We would stay here again, a little gem. It was first class service all the way. Would highly recommend  (How satisfied were you with the property ?) Very Satisfied - Mr B. from Hertfordshire, July 2016.
