About Villa Cocoa Flower
Villa Cocoa Flower is an unusual and stylish villa that is in a very quiet environment but is just a short walk from the lively village of Valbonne. The walk into Valbonne is 1.2km and is very pleasant, passing by some lovely villas and olive groves. Just the ticket to visit the market in Valbonne on a Friday.
Opio is 2.5km away and offers some very nice shops, including a Lebanese delicatessen.
The villa is a mixture of partly newly-renovated and partly newly-built. The villa is 230m².
There is a big family room of 100m², which includes kitchen area and living room. The family room has direct access to the dining terrace, the pool terrace, and the bedroom terrace.
An original mix of styles, “Scandinavian”, “Art Deco” and “Loft “ make the atmosphere unique and quite 'zen'. The owners are very interested in interior design and a clean, healthy lifestyle so they grow a lot of their own vegetables, some of which may reach your dinner table to be enjoyed surrounded by the fragrance of summer on the Mediterranean.
The pool is 4.5m x 8.5 m, and it is a soft saltwater pool. The pool is of course equipped with an alarm.
The entrance hall connects the family room and the " night area"/bedrooms. There is a guest toilet in the entrance hall and also a direct access to the dining terrace.

On the dining terrace, in front of the family room, a big electrical sun shade takes care of the shade.
The garden is 3000m², plenty of space to play and run around. If you arrive in June then you will have to share the garden with hundreds of fireflies every night! Beautiful company!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2013
We had a brilliant stay at Villa Cocoa Flower. The villa is absolutely stunning . It is beautifully decorated and everything is to the highest specification. The housekeeper met us on arrival . She was lovely and extremely helpful. We were able to text her for advice re best beaches etc . The pool area was also stunning . Everything we needed was provided . The location near Valbonne was great with a lovely boulangerie within walking distance . I would highly recommend this villa . We didn’t want to leave and would love to return .

It has a lovely vibe, comfortable lay out and beautiful setting. Almost perfect. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. I would rebook it without hesitation.
