Generally, in French resorts children can take lessons from the age of 5. Nonskiers can toboggan, ice-skate, take sleigh rides, hire snow shoes and just enjoy being in the snowy mountains.

Distances

The villa is also walking distance from the Vaugrenier woods which offer many trails, lakes, lots of trees and space. The coastal train can be taken from Biot station and is frequent and efficient in both directions along the coast. This makes it easy to pop over to Cannes for the day or Menton, on the Italian border, on into Italy to the famed Ventimiglia markets. Nearer to home, the beaches around Antibes, Cap d'Antibes are delightful and varied. The coves of the Cap offer great snorkelling.

Further details

Fun for all the family: Villa Blue Horizon is a 10 minute walk to Marineland which is a great family day out. Marineland is famous for its spectacular dolphin and killer whale shows. The park opened in 1970 and many of the dolphins you see performing were born here. There is a strong emphasis on providing an excellent environment for all their sea creatures. In addition to Marineland there is Aqua -Splash, Adventure Golf, La Jungle des Papillons, La Petite Ferme and Antibesland. So you can find something here to keep the whole family happy. Other interesting things to do include the fascinating Oceanographicum in Mondaco and Le Chemin de Fer de Provence which is an excellent way to see the countryside as the train rattles up the Var valley close to the Gorges du Verdon. Also consider Parc Floral Phoenix on the west side of Nice, the glass-bottomed boat from which you can spot not only spectacular fish but stunning real estate around Cap d'Antibes and simple 'bucket and spade' play on the many beautiful beaches along the Riviera.

Guest comments

Thank you very much for the beautiful and lovely Villa where we could spend real holiday time. The villa was splendid for our needs and our grand children loved the pool and garden very much. KM (Finland)

We were a family of 6 occupying the villa for three weeks in August. This spacious villa within private grounds is beautiful, clean and cool, even without the air conditioning. It has great facilities and fully equipped, good size swimming pool, lovely summer kitchen area with BBQ and large balconies to enjoy the sea view. It was useful to have a rental car as we travelled a lot and visited almost all lovely places from Saint Tropez to Saint Remo. Thanks for making this a very enjoyable stay, our family returns to the French Riviera year after year and will definitely be back. We would highly recommend this villa to those who enjoy living in comfort. AK (Russia)

We had a fantastic holiday, the villa is lovely in a wonderful location. KA (England)
