VILLA PHILAE - SECRET PARADISE
The extraordinary VILLA PHILAE is situated just above the city of Menton in a fabulous secret garden paradise in the French Riviera. Menton can easily be reached by car or by a beautiful walking path. The views are breathtaking as is the property. The surrounding is perfectly peaceful, the view and the pool are just amazing. The rooms are furnished tastefully with a mix of modern design pieces by Philippe Starck and classic antiques.
It has an exceptional sea view and is situated in the famous residential area of Garavan, famous for its belle époque villas and fabulous gardens thanks to its exceptional climate. The owners, Eleonore and Philippe, convince with great hospitality. They speak German fluently as they are originally from the area around Straßburg. Their warm hospitality is just exceptional.
The whole villa is very elegant and well-kept. The pool area and the mediterrean views are just incredible. The breakfast served by Evelyn, a classic maid, is delicious and consists of high quality items, something new added every day like homemade marmelade.
There is also a completely equipped kitchen in the living room as well as a barbecue space on the terrace. If you want to dine out, Mirazur, the best restaurant in the world, is just around the corner.
