The French Riviera is one of the most popular destinations to visit at any time of year. Home to famous towns like Saint Tropez and Cannes, there are also many places to discover that offer a more secluded experience of the region. Anyone looking for sun, sea and sand, as well as a chance to rub elbows with the well-heeled, might choose the Riviera as their top destination. When looking for somewhere to stay, there are some beautiful villas that offer a private experience as a way to avoid any crowds. If you want to rent a luxury villa on the French Riviera, you need to know what to look for.

Where to Stay

Deciding where to stay on the French Riviera might be easy for some, but others want to consider a variety of options. Saint Tropez and Cannes might be the best options for those who want to stay in the most popular places, especially if they are looking for a variety of high-end businesses and services nearby. However, there are more discreet locations you might consider too, such as the following.
Cap D'Antibes - a peninsula about 4 miles long, known for its isolation and beautiful greenery, frequented by the rich and famous
Gassin - a Provençal village classed as one of the most beautiful in France, offering a secluded place to stay
Mougins - the village and commune of Mougins offer a hilltop location close to Cannes, for those who want to be near to the action but not in it
Grimaud - this picturesque Medieval village is typical of Provence and could be the perfect location for history and culture lovers

Space

When you want to rent a luxury villa, you need to know how much space you can get for your money. If you're looking for luxury villa rentals, you can typically expect to find living space of anywhere from around 200 to 500 square metres. Some smaller villas may have a little less, while particularly large ones could have over 1000 square metres. The amount of living space available won't depend entirely on how many bedrooms the villa has, so it's always best to check.

Facilities and Equipment

You need to know what kind of facilities and equipment you can expect to find in a luxury villa on the French Riviera. You will generally find that there is an outdoor swimming pool, although some are bigger than others. Other facilities might include land around the villa, which is excellent for extra privacy. You can also find secure parking and a garage at some villas, as well as alarm systems for security in some properties. Typically, there will be a fully-fitted kitchen, large enough for the maximum number of guests at the property.

Contemporary Versus Traditional

Considering style is also important, so think about whether you would prefer a modern or a more traditional villa. Modern villas are likely to be larger, but not have the French charm that some people are looking for. However, newer villas can still have a traditional interior style with a contemporary twist.
