About Solera et Sea Urchin Villas

- Villa Solera : Grand Villa Solera is a Mediterranean paradise. Offering panoramic views, multiple terraces overlooking the sea, a gorgeous swimming pool and 6 bedrooms sleeping 12 people - this is the perfect villa for large families or groups.

Known as one of the best and most beautiful villas on the Côte d'Azur, it was built in 1880 and has all of the beautiful Belle Époque features of that period, whilst remaining satisfyingly modern, and located only 100 metres from the beach.

Upon entering the property, you will be taken aback by the interior decor. It has been beautifully renovated, whilst retaining its original character.

There are 12 bedrooms, most with stunning views and beautiful decor. The bathrooms will leave you dreaming and the communal areas are spacious and pleasant.

There are guest quarters at the side and a guardian's house at the other side. This villa is perfect for entertaining as it can cater for up to 50 guests.

The views over the bay are astonishing and it gets sun all day.


The outside area of this property is absolutely stunning, complete with a quaint yet spacious garden, covered in a blanket of bright green lawn. There are many terraces offering the perfect place for al fresco dining, all whilst looking out onto the panoramic view of the sea and the surrounding hills.

The swimming pool invites you into its crystal clear water, and offers a stunning view of the Mediterranean that will leave you breathless. This swimming pool is heated, so can also be used during the colder seasons. The swimming pool area is equipped with sun-beds.

One of the best features of this property is its stone-walled outdoor dining area, complete with a BBQ area.

There is a child's swing, sand pit, garage space and wonderful garden and terraces.

- Villa Oursinade : A really stunning property overlooking the bay of Villefranche to Cap Ferrat. It has been modernised to the highest standard in order to ensure ultimate comfort and simplicity.

Its South-facing direction ensures that it gets the sun all day, making every time of day perfect for sunbathing. The location of this property is perfect, only a 4 minute walk to the port of Villefranche, 130 metres from the beach and the train station is also closeby (2 stops from Nice and you're in Monte Carlo!)

Having been divided into three apartments for many years, this villa has now been restored to its former glory, capable of sleeping up to 9 people, making it the perfect property for a family or group of friends. It has beautiful marble flooring throughout and is fitted with top-of-the-range furniture, with ample space and three walk-out balconies.

There is a garage with room for one car, and there is ample free parking outside the villa.
