Room for Everyone: Large Family Villas for Rental

Written by Julie Gauthier, Founder & Director, Art de Vivre

We are often approached by clients to find a villa for a large family get together. With grandchildren, son-in-laws and distant cousins, all needing enough space and activities, what seemed like a good idea initially can become a stressful task for the host. Sound familiar?

Pleasing everyone and finding the perfect balance of location and property is where our expertise is invaluable. Luckily many of our private properties are made for large gatherings with vast areas of space in the gardens and living areas, separate sleeping areas, as well as many different areas for dining around the property.

While some guests will prefer a quiet relaxing time around the villa, the little guests may like to be on the beach and the active ones, be they teenagers or aunts and uncles, may want water sports, cultural trips, golf, hiking, snow sports or cycling nearby. We take pride in getting to know the complete makeup of each of our guest parties, using our experience and imagination to ensure each guest's priorities and interests are fulfilled during their stay.

Our portfolio and contacts have large villas and chalets around the world located in Mediterranean, Majorca, Ibiza, Italy, Cote d'Azur, Dubrovnik, Bali, Thailand, Caribbean, South Africa, Indian Ocean, Central America, South America and the Alps.

Whether you are searching for a villa or chalet for a family celebration, wedding anniversary, milestone birthday, family get together, special occasion or group of friends staying together, send us a request with your family's unique requirements and we will be happy to aid you in finding the perfect property for rental.

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life.

Elegance in the Cote d'Azur: Designer Oceanfront Villa

Villa Côte d'Azur 232,
Rayol-canadel-sur-mer

Stunning views across golden islands
Restored elegance & beautiful garden
Classical French interior desig

With its maritime pines backdrop, perfectly manicured garden and prime location overlooking the Mediterranean, the villa is a great location for a family holiday or special celebration. Just 25km from St Tropez, this restored villa has pride of place in an exceptional setting across from the Golden Islands, Levant, Porquerolles and Port Cros.

The owner and his wife have lovingly restored the elegant villa with style and refinement.  The interior is classically French with soft neutral fabrics and antique-style furnishings.

Most of the rooms face the bay and most have their own sea-facing outdoor terrace or balcony. The four bedrooms in the main house (with an additional 4 bedrooms in the guest wing) are furnished with an eclectic mix of period and modern classics. They are decorated with a light and airy touch and each room is unique in style and ambiance, featuring eye catching furnishings and striking art.

A great selection of dining areas are available from the formal dining room, to the alfresco dining by the pool house or more informal spaces on the terraces or courtyard. There is a relaxed family kitchen with a beautiful island piece, top quality equipment with subzero fridge, four oven aga and large Gaggenau oven.

The pool house is a highlight with its natural Burgundy stone floors and its open exposure. Its fully equipped kitchen is perfect for entertaining alfresco-style. An island bar separates the kitchen from the living area with its large open log fireplace, oversized cushions and a music system. This opens out with a large dining table & chairs for 20 people.

The grounds are across an acre of walled garden of rose bushes, plants and shrubs. Local plants include extensive areas of Lavender, an agapanthi walk and beds of iceberg roses with Arboussier and Mimosa trees. An ideal villa for you to spend quality time with family and friends for birthday celebrations, special dinners, wedding anniversaries and family reunions.

Eco Design in Brazil: Beach Villa

Villa Brazil 602, Búzios
Architect Thiago Bernardes
Stunning sea views & helipad
Modern design inspired by Nature

Ecological design runs through this house as it takes advantage of the beautiful sunlight and ocean breezes. The villa is built around a central wing which houses the living room, large suites and service space.

Shaped like a large cross, the villa is filled with stunning modern décor around a sparkling swimming-pool. Even the corridors and halls are built according to a philosophy of open design to create spaces with spectacular natural light and perfect ventilation for a 4900m² building. The villa's architecture blends in perfectly with its environment through the use of wood and the large windows and open spaces allow the villa to easily integrate with the rest of the grounds of nearly 4 acres.

Gardens built around suites within the building itself, create a pleasant atmosphere in nature. The spectacular inside-outside pool, with its own outdoor kitchen, completes this gloriously beautiful modern design villa in Brazil.
