From the outside Villa Zen appears like a rustic farmhouse, with walls of local stone and a glorious, lavender-filled garden that perfumes the air with the freshest of scents. Ivory parasols flap gently in the breeze and butterflies flutter through the organic kitchen garden.

Yet there’s sophistication behind the rustic exterior. The whole house is decorated with Christian Liagre furniture and collections of African and Asian sculptures, creating something that’s both timeless and modern in this idyllic rural setting.

The house is located on one of the most exclusive gated domaines in the area, with wonderful views down to the coast. Outside is a beautiful pool and sunbed-strewn deck, a pool house with its own fireplace, a yoga and massage pavilion (instructors can be brought in), a boules pitch, a fire pit for cooler evenings, a range of barbecues to cook at and a children’s playground with swings under the shade of the trees. There are also beautifully lit terraces to dine on at night, with views out towards the twinkling lights of the coast.

Inside you’ll find a sauna and steam room, a snooker pavilion, a 95-inch TV screen and a range of must-have mod-cons from the likes of Apple and Sonos.

A two-minute drive brings you to the historic, hilltop village of St Paul de Vence with its galleries, restaurants and famous Colombe D’Or Hotel (Sunday brunch a must).

Cannes, Nice and Antibes are an easy drive away, giving you access to the Riviera when you want it, safe in the knowledge you can retreat when required to your own private piece of paradise.

This is just a selection of the villas we represent.
