A stunning bastide, a Provencal manor house dating back to 1789, lovingly restored in glorious style to capture the character and allow visitors to enjoy it in modern style and comfort. Although the villa has six bedrooms we limit the occupancy to eight and allow you to use the bedrooms you prefer, the limitation is due to the awkward parking space for only two cars. Set in beautiful secluded gardens and with the recent addition of a smart new swimming pool you can relax and enjoy the wonderful views down to the sea at Cannes. Grasse is within walking distance although the steep lanes may deter some.
On the main level is the well equipp...ed kitchen with a large dining table for eight people, adjacent is the winter terrace, a glazed sun room to enjoy the views during cooler months and with access down a few steps to the barbecue terrace and its pretty vegetable garden. The kitchen leads to the elegant lounge, it has a working fireplace and doors to the main terrace overlooking the pool.
Upstairs is the master double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, shabby chic wardrobe and restored shutters with the TV hidden in a cupboard, not to spoil the illusion of originality. Adjacent is a small twin bedroom and a separate shower room.
Up on the fourth floor is the young people's domain with a double bed alcove, another with twin beds, a sitting room with TV and a full bathroom. The access is via a narrow and step staircase and the ceiling is low in places but teens love it.
From the living room is a staircase to a lower floor at garden level, it has a small snug ideal for cards, there's a double bedroom, a shower room and another well fitted room with a kitchenette and double bed with access directly to the garden. It's an almost self-contained area the might work well if two families are sharing or you are travelling with an extended family.
The swimming pool was only completed recently and, like the rest of the villa, it manages to combine modern contemporary style with the age old garden and the elegant lines of the bastide. If it suits your style and your family you will love this villa; set over four floors it's not suitable for very young children, the elderly or the infirm and parking is awkward but we think it's worth the effort.
