Beautiful villa with fabulous views
We were very happy to have found this wonderful villa on VRBO. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the bathrooms modern and clean and the kitchen a pleasure to cook in. What made it particularly special were the vistas from the patio overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Plus as the patio faced west, the sunsets were spectacular.
The only negative was that the location was on Mt. Boron and not within walking distance of Nice or any restaurants other than a pizza shop. We had a car and used it for trips to other villages but resorted to Uber for trips down to Nice as parking is hard and the roads are confusing.
There is a very nice supermarket within a few blocks and we used it to get groceries for several dinners at home and milk and eggs for breakfast.
On the whole, the isolated location was far outweighed by the charm of the house and the beauty of the views. We loved it.
thank you for choosing our villa for your stay in Nice and thank you for your detailed review which will be very useful for our future guests.
Ok but not five star
The villa and Garden is all a bit run down and scruffy. Quite disappointed really. Pool is nice. Only one bathroom with toilet. Not worth the exorbitant price. Can’t be bothered to list all individual issues.
I make a few points.
There are 2 separate toilets and 2 toilets with bathroom.
I can not subscribe when you say that the villa and its garden are a bit down and scruffy"...
Our last client wrote the following comment on another platform:
« Wow. This home is the reason I try hard not to give 5 star reviews. It’s totally a 10. Location, beauty, cleanliness, the staff that manages it, their recommendations, the area. Flawless. I d never seen a historic home feel so modern and comfortable. Please note the 4th bedroom works more like a casita as it is not attached. Lots of walking trails with stairs that lead down to old Nice. Quite a trek up the hill once you get down though. Makes you feel less guilty for all of the delicious dinner options: Le Réserve and La Mayssa were incredible stops. The artwork in the house is also inspiring. I simply can’t wait to go back. I’m a little sad it’s all over. Until next time."
To each one his point of view ...
Beautiful villa in Nice
We stayed at the villa in May 2017. The villa is beautiful with views of the sea. The location is perfect, as it is in a quiet section of Nice. The villa is clean with a large kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. The pool and gardens are peaceful. A private garage was available, which was a plus as we rented a car. We were able to walk down to the Promenade (40 minutes) and enjoyed the awesome view while exercising. We also used Ubers to get into town quickly to shop in the open air markets, dinners, etc. Day trips to Monaco and Eze Village were easy. My husband, an avid cyclist, arranged rides up into the hills with Azur Cycling Tours. The scenery was stunning. Would definitely recommend this villa!
Thank you Diane for your review witch will be very helpful for future guests. We hope to welcoming you again.
Terrific! Views, pool, grounds
Wonderful property for our family of eight (3 generations). Luxury villa with spectacular views, lovely grounds, heated pool. Quite secure in quiet upscale neighborhood. Very accommodating owner. Just a note- seniors, like me (72), should be aware that this is a hilly area so long walks were not for my wife and I, though all the others did well.
I must give a big shout out to the wonderful Uber drivers in this area. They were prompt, their vehicles spotless and top of the line (we used Uber Van) and they will go far afield. This was the best Uber service we have experienced anywhere.
All this made for a truly great holiday!
Thank you Michael. We look forward to welcoming you again.
The house is everything as advertised and more! Perfect stay. The caretakers Christian and Juliet are very diligent and responsive. Merci! 👍🇫🇷
Many thanks to Patrick and his family. We look forward to welcoming you again. Pascal.
Wonderful stay at Villa Dracoena
The Villa Dracoena from the beautiful era (Belle Epoque) is perfectly located in a very residential area, overlooking the mediterranean sea between Villefranche-sur-Mer and The Baie des Anges in Nice. It is closed to the historical center of Nice and the renowned "Promenade des Anglais".
The villa features 4 bedrooms with AC, 4 bathrooms recently renovated in marble, superbe indivudual terrasses with magnificient sea views. One of the terrasses located on the top roof is easily accessible by a beautiful staircase.
The property also features a heated pool surrounded by beautiful mediterranean plants and an orange tree garden.
Everything make your stay very enjoyable.
The historical center of Nice is easily accessible by foot or by bus (bus stop 2 blocks away). There is no need for a car. There is also a supermarket Carrefour nearby: very useful for everyday's shopping needs.
As many other people, I highly recommend this villa !
The villa Dracoena is located 15 minutes from Nice airport and 20 minutes from Monaco. Nice center, Villefranche, Monaco can be reached by bus (10 minutes to reach Nice center by bus). The bus stop is close to the Villa (100 meters). A large Carrefour store is available 100 meters from the Villa. Several very nice restaurants are located less than 15 minutes walking from the Villa Dracoena.
Other Activities: Ski in winter within 60 minutes drive.
