Villa with private pool and Tennis Court and stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and Cap d'Antibes: <BR><BR>Storyvilla should really be called 'Sporty-villa' because it offers sooo much if you are a sporty/active family. If you're a lounge lizard there's always a swim in the salt water pool followed by sunbathing. If you want to play sports then Tennis in your own private court. Boules for a more leisurely activity, table tennis, table football and mini snooker . For a real work out there's goal posts in the upper field if you want to kick a ball about.
