Discount to European visitors – update 16 June 2020: sold out
To all our European visitors we are offering a discount in July and August 2020.
We are a Danish family renting out our holiday home and since the Danes currently are not allowed to travel outside of Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Island, we want to offer you an advantageous price.
Villa Romarine can be a great way to get away and pull the plug of your everyday life – to spend quality time with your loved ones in a private and relaxed environment.
Please rest assured that the holiday home is properly cleaned between every visit.
The cycling season 2018 from Villa Romarine is open :)!
From the holiday house Villa Romarine you’ll find lots of great cycling opportunities – regardless if you prefer a racing bike or a more traditional bike, which you’ll find in Villa Romarine’s garage. A man’s bicycle, a ladies’ bike, a ladies’ touring bike and two mountain bikes.
Sunday the 4th of February, Charlotte and I (Thomas) opened the cycling season from Villa Romarine. Get an overview of the entire route including photos here: Cycling trup from Villa Romarine to the coast and back.
We rode our bikes to St. Jeannet with two French recreational athletes; a fast beginning :). We continued along the old road, Ancienne Route de Vence – a beautiful stretch without any traffic. At the lower roundabout in St. Jeannet, we turned right (West) to get to an old bridge and a lovely creek, La Cagne, which we met again by the mouth in Cagnes-sur-Mer!
In Vence we would have continued to the picturesque village St. Paul, but we decided to take a detour through Tourrettes-sur-Loup in order to ride on the smaller roads and to take a look at the reopened, Danish-owned Auberge de Tourrettes. We had a nice chat with the owners and are looking forward to the 1st March, when they open for evening service. I’m sure it’s worth a visit.
In St. Paul we stopped for cappuccinos and croque monsieurs before we rode all the way down to the coast in Cagnes-sur-Mer. It was wonderful to see the ocean!
On our way home we stuck to the small and tranquil – but steep! – roads behind St. Laurent-du-Var. We climbed quickly and along almost the entire ridge, we had a great view of the Var Valley. Back in St. Jeannet we bought fresh baguettes and pain au chocolat as a reward for our lovely trip and all the kilometres.
The last 5 km home to Villa Romarine was along the old road “Vieille route de Carros” past the vineyard, 1,5 further ahead of the gravel road and then we reached Villa Romarine and a well-deserved beer from the holiday house’s own bar. Outside, but wearing a sweater :). It was a lovely way to get to see some of the area mixed with the fresh winter air.
