Situated just minutes away from the gorgeous French Riviera town of Valbonne (famed for its cobbled streets and gourmet restaurants), private luxury villa Domaine la Sylviane has had a romantic history. Built by monks in the 17th century, it has passed through the hands of Napoleon’s army and the Grimaldi family, keeping its monastic feel over the last 300 years while updating its fittings and fixtures for a modern visitor. Set in acres of charming verdant grounds and comprising four buildings, it is the perfect spot for a family vacation with everyone you know.
There are so many rooms to choose from within the estate that it’s hard to crown one as the best, but we have a few suggestions. In the main house there’s the master bedroom suite, reserved for the most important members of your trip, boasting the largest living space and en-suite bathroom. As with the entire property, the devil is in the detail, with gorgeous mementoes picked up from far-flung travels sitting side-by-side with well-worn books on antique furniture. If you want to get away from the group, there’s the farmhouse adjoining the property, comprising two entirely separate flats. Here, the bedrooms are less generous in size but you do have an entire living room complete with office space, as well as a green-tiled bathroom comparable to a Roman baths – think showers, walk-in tubs and sinks galore.
