The Villa

Dive into the heart of the French Riviera at the Villa Port d’attache (Home Port).
Gillian and Daniel invite you to drop anchor and enjoy a time of relaxation in a unique environment. Breakfast is served to the soothing song of a Provencal fountain on the sunny terraces with a birds eye view of the sea and a mere 10 minutes to Cannes and Antibes.

The Eagles’ Nest

Villa “Le Port d’attache” overlooks Vallauris, city of potters and ceramic art, as well as the Bay of Nice (Baie des Anges).

Ideally situated in the heart of the Côte d’Azur between Cannes and Antibes, you will be warmly welcomed amidst grape vines, fruit and olive trees. The guesthouse is classified “3 épis” by Gîtes de France and with its gardens and pool make for a relaxing atmosphere, a home away from home experience.

Explore the French Riviera

15 minutes by car

5 minutes by car
Capital of pottery and ceramics, Vallauris has long been the meeting place for famous artists such as Picasso, Jean Marais, or Roger Capron to name but a few. Explore Vallauris -Golfe Juan, a perfect combination of sea and tradition.
5 minutes by car
Take in the splendour of this city known for the Film Festival, its palace hotels, and buzzing business events. Go beyond the famous Croisette and explore the picturesque charm of a cosmopolitan global village from the local fishermen, the traditional Forville market, or cobbled streets of the old quarter of the Suquet.

After 20 years of sailing together, Gillian and Daniel have great pleasure in inviting you to drop anchor at their bed and breakfast Villa “Le Port d‘Attache” or at their apartments on the French Riviera. It is also an opportunity for them to share their adventures of when they crossed the Atlantic, the Pacific or whilst cruising off the Greek islands and Mediterranean coast.

We began our 2 week journey in Vallauris at Villa Port d’ Attache. This was easily the best and most welcoming B&B experience through our many years of travel. A fine property run by a wonderful couple that work very hard to provide their guests with a special experience. The property’sgorgeous hillside location, views and quality of the home, it’s decor and rooms is perfect.

So beautiful, I don’t think photos could ever do it justice ! A warm welcome, spotlessly clean and a delicious breakfast too. Only advice is to stay as long as possible.

This storybook property is nestled among beautiful gardens on a hillside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Our room had a private entrance and patio with a magical view. As beautiful as Villa Le Port d’Attache is, our hosts Gillian and Daniel made our trip an exceptional one. They took great care and helped us get the most out of our time on the Cote’d’Azur. Truly a lovely couple. We hope to stay with them again.
