Villa Bayview’s stone and glass architecture is sculpted on the edge of the Villefranche-Sur-Mer hillside, her curved and jagged profile mimicking the craggy bay beneath. She cascades down to the sea along with the rest of the gorgeous village, which offers one of the most charming Niçoise fishing bays in all of the French riviera. And the best catch is, without a doubt, this villa of your dreams.
As an early riser, you’ve been sitting in the luscious rooftop garden for some time now, observing your uninterrupted view of the Mediterranean Sea. You can’t escape the sensational sights at Bayview, they’re everywhere, but this spot is your favourite. The mist on the horizon crawls away as the sun brightens the sky, to reveal a flawless landscape of glistening blue waters. The sleepy village has gradually become a bustling hub with yacht’s and fishing boats flocking to the bay, and the laughter from the quaint markets tinkles up to become music to your ears.
As if on cue, you spot your friendly villa chef appearing on the terrace below with a bag full of fresh produce, ready to prepare another exquisite feast. You can’t wait to see what flavours await you after last night’s welcome dinner which consisted of a local speciality, the slow-cooked beef dish La Daube Niçoise, washed down with one of the finest reds in the region.
You can hear your friends beginning to rise below, bellowing hearty “good morning’s” to the panoramic beauty they can see from their bedroom balconies. You make your way down the central leading staircase and head inside briefly to blast some sultry jazz through the impressive sound system, a suitably tasteful soundtrack for this classy villa. Waiting for your friends to join, you recline on one of the plush sofas in the viewing lounge, enjoying its pristine floor-to-ceiling viewing windows.
Breakfast is served in the alfresco terrace dining area as usual, the refreshing breeze and warming air providing the perfect accompaniment to your mouth-watering omelettes. Afterwards you make the short journey downstairs to the outdoor pool, dotted with luxury sun loungers, which is where you plan to stay for the best part of the day. Occasionally, you dip in and out of the pool house for a more shaded place to indulge in some cocktails and those unforgettable views that will stay with you long after your time with this beautiful villa.

There is something wonderfully comforting and indulgent about having somebody else take control of the kitchen. When that person is a talented chef with hands-on experience in high-end restaurants, you know you’re in for a mouth-watering treat. We handpick our villa partners for their beautiful properties, stand out service and their dedication to gastronomy. Here’s a taste of what you can expect when staying in one of our catered villas:
When you awake from your dreamy sleep you can rest assured that breakfast has been taken care of and awaits you. Freshly squeezed oranges and healthy fruit juices along with a selection of delicious teas and coffee are just the start. Yoghurts, crispy cereals, fresh fruits and a tempting display of fresh breads & delicate pastries complete the table. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? If creamy porridge with honey or simply toast hits the spot, just ask, it’s on the menu. With breakfast taken care of all you have to do is decide how to spend the day. A trip to a stunning beach or perhaps time relaxing by your own private pool – decisions, decisions! Life can be tough …….
Your chef will prepare a wonderful spread at lunchtime and in the evening you choose whether you’d like to dine al-fresco under the stars or in the lovely dining room - the choice is yours. With an emphasis on using specially selected fresh local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt-in-the-mouth meal befitting of a Michelin starred restaurant. From sun soaked BBQ’s on the terrace to delicious locally inspired menus, your chef will be in touch with you personally before your arrival to discuss your preferences.
The villa provides complimentary soft drinks, mineral water, tea and coffee. There is welcome Champagne on your arrival and other drinks can be supplied to suit your requirements.
The chef is happy to cater to specific dietary requirements. Just let us know about any special requests regarding dietary requirements such as gluten free options. Maybe you’re celebrating a birthday? A cake bedecked with candles can be arranged or maybe just favourite dishes, nothing is too much trouble, just ask. Maybe you’d like an earlier high tea for the youngest children? We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted.
Food & alcoholic drink costs are additional and will be payable in resort
