A lovely big private Provençal villa with swimming pool and established grounds nestled perfectly amongst the wonderful French Riviera villages of Mougins, Valbonne, St Paul de Vence and Grasse. The self-catering Villa Aurita is usually rented exclusively for your private use although also offers luxury boutique bed and breakfast accommodation during some periods. The owners run a successful catering and events company so you will be assured great food, warm welcome and luxurious surroundings. It also makes for one of the most fantastic and intimate wedding venues in the South of France.
This beautiful property is five minutes walking distance down to the village and local shops and restaurants so you can find everything you need close at hand. It has great outside space and several terraces where you can enjoy a glass of rose after a relaxing day sightseeing the typical Cote d'Azur villages and beaches which are all just a short drive away. The terrace on the roof has it's own a stunning outside bathroom and views to the sea & mountains. Here you can chill out on one of the sunbeds or cool off with an outdoor bath or shower!
With seven bedrooms (and plenty of bathrooms) spread across three floors you can be guaranteed plenty of space and privacy no matter how big your group size is. The villa works particularly well when there are three families sharing, as each can have their own floor.
Full length French doors lead out to another large terrace with a beautiful stone table, overlooking the swimming pool and gardens. If you fancy eating al-fresco there is a great outdoor kitchen with a Webber BBQ and a wood burning pizza oven all built around a stunning fire-pit. The outdoor kitchen is built under a beautiful shady area where you can relax after a long lazy Provencal lunch. This area has a long rectangular stone dining table and two Moroccan stone sofas which can be covered in the authentic throws and cushions provided.
There is a self-contained two bedroom apartment which is usually always included in the price meaning that guests have total privacy and seclusion in their own exclusive villa.
Although being a typical Mas, the villa is also hi-tech throughout with state of the art hi-fi equipment (including garden), huge 50" plasma TV and Sky television throughout. High speed ADSL and Wi-FI is also included. Just plug in your iPhone or iPod and listen to your very own music wherever you fancy.
There is a good standard of tasteful furnishing throughout the entire property with a wonderful professional kitchen with 48' gas Wolf Cooking range with BBQ and Teppanyaki, Sub-Zero 600 Fridge/ freezer (with ice), granite throughout and as Louise is a chef it is naturally very well equipped!
If you fancy a night out of the kitchen and have somehow got bored of eating at all the lovely local restaurants then why not ask Louise, (the villa owner) if she is available to cook you up a wonderful breakfast, lunch or dinner? You usually have to book in advance but dinner at home can often be less expensive than going out to eat, with the added benefit that you do not have to worry about finding a babysitter or expensive taxi.
You can also enjoy some fantastic French wine at a fraction it would cost in a local brassiere or restaurant. Just ask for the Red Radish CATERING db728663285.
