Bayview, Villefranche sur Mer

Sleeps 10

The Property

As the road above the picture-perfect Riviera town of Villefranche sur Mer winds up steeply, round hairpin bends reminiscent of a Michael Caine car chase, you could be forgiven for assuming that your reward will be quite a special view.

However, arriving outside an outside an unassuming looking gate in the exclusive enclave of Domaine du Castallet, nothing quite prepares you for that jaw-dropping moment when the gates silently slide open, and the entire Cote d’Azur is spread out at your feet.

Bayview, a brand new villa completed in July 2011 has quite possibly the best vantage point in the South of France. Quite literally perched on a cliff, St Jean Cap Ferrat is spread before you, with a panorama stretching as far as Cap d’Antibes, Nice and Villefranche itself. Breathtaking by day in the clear pine-scented air, but mesmerising at night, and the perfect backdrop to an equally impressive property.

Although only completed a few months ago, the phenomenal landscaped gardens, roof terrace and lush, lawned areas feel like they’ve been always been here, and are placed to make the most of the views and space, adding to the feeling of privileged peace and privacy that you feel as soon as you enter the grounds. Even on the most sultry of Cote d’Azur summer days, your lofty position always attracts a hint of a fresh sea breeze.

This architect-designed Villa is a contemporary marriage of glass and rough stone, with terraced areas on every level, that seamlessly merge in to its surroundings. The interior layout of the entire building makes the most of the available space, a highlight of which is the fantastic open-plan living and dining area, but predominantly capitalises on the views, with triple aspect views, floor to ceiling windows and access to private terraces from every room. 

Furnished with the sophistication, quality and vision that you would expect from such a world-class property, the decor does not detract from the situation of this property – if anything it adds to it, with sculpted baths set by huge windows, some beautiful individually designed pieces of furniture, and a bespoke, sculpted Italian artisanal staircase that stretches from top to bottom throughout the heart of the building. The outdoor pool comes complete with a pool house with fully equipped kitchen and outside lounge area with shaded terrace.

The attention to detail at Bayview is as you would expect, but impressive nonetheless, with inspired interior and exterior lighting design and modular furniture and Japanese sliding doors that make the open plan living, dining and cooking areas versatile and user-friendly, as well as beautifully aesthetic.

Outside space is maximised by a car turntable, a perfect example how every inch of this property has been designed to not only look and feel fabulous but function beautifully as a living space, whilst making the most of such a unique position.
