Mandelieu-la Napoule: French Holiday & Villa
Villa in Mandelieu-la Napoule
We recently had the privilege of hosting a celebration at a villa in Mandelieu-la Napoule, while on our holiday in the Côte d’Azur, French Riviera. This town is located south-west of Cannes and north-east of Théoule-sur-Mer (see map here).
We had a beautiful view of the Mediterranean by day and breathtaking sunrises each morning. Our garden was filled with the scent of lavender and rosemary.
Days were spent sipping rosé and cooking local cuisine for friends and family. Tucked away in the mountains, we enjoyed a week of sunshine and tranquillity.
We travelled from London and took a relatively short flight into Cannes. We rented a car at the airport and drove ourselves to the villa. This took us under an hour to get there. There are some very windy roads and hills on the way there with beautiful views of the sea!
We visited in September and experienced nice warm weather. In the day, we cooled ourselves off by swimming in the pool or by the sea. It felt hot enough that you wanted to jump in with temperatures around 28 degrees Celsius. In the evenings, it cooled down a little with a nice breeze.
