Quirky Provence Village House with Sea View Terrac

Accessed from a pretty winding lane way off the village main street, La Maison d'en Haut (approx 60m2) lies behind a thick wooden door encompassed by a radiant bougainvillea.

The ground floor

You step up into the house and arrive in the entrance hallway - this level goes around on itself giving a great feeling of space. To the left is a long Provence style kitchen and straight in front of you are wooden stairs taking you up to the next level. The open plan sitting room boldly greets you with its black and white tiled floor flowing from the downstairs bedroom through an open archway into this bright and airy room - this is definitely the heart ...Read more

Additional Location Information

The charming, fortified medieval village of Haut de Cagnes is the oldest district of Cagnes sur Mer – ideally situated between Nice and Antibes and only a short car journey from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport and within walking distance to the sea.

Here you are close to a boulangerie for warm fresh bread each morning and an excellent selection of restaurants for great dining. Local food markets, shops and outdoor cafes are all nearby. The area provides a perfect hopping on point to multiple destinations and attractions with its excellent rail and bus services.

Crowned with the original Grimaldi Castle, this enchanting medieval village with charming cobbled streets and remarkable ancient buildings transports you back in time to the 13th Century. The serenity and simplicity found in these pretty French villages allows you to enjoy the sun, sea and breath-taking views in a very relaxed atmosphere. Known as the ‘Montmartre of the French Rivieria’, Haut de Cagnes was the haunt of Renoir, Modigliani, Soutine, Yves Klein, Bardot and Cocteau. It’s easy to see why many famous artists lived or found their inspiration here, falling in love with the soft Mediterranean light and honest authenticity.

But this charming, perched village has so much more to offer, with its tiers of tiny streets, climbing soft stone walls and colourful houses bursting with history. On the main street and Place du Château, there are plenty of bustling restaurants and cafés plus numerous historical cultural events and colourful festivals are held during the year.

A short stroll down the hill will bring you to the town of Cagnes, which provides all amenities such as a boulangerie, a patisserie, a supermarket, post office, the main bus square and a wonderful covered food market. Close to the town centre lies the Renoir Museum, the Hippodrome for horse racing and Cros de Cagnes – the seaside resort of Cagnes sur Mer with its private and public beaches.

There is so much you can do without a car, such as; shopping in Cannes, people watching in St Tropez, perfume sampling in Grasse, gambling in Monaco, lunching in Italy and buying art in St Paul – all easily accessible and inexpensive with most bus journeys costing only €1. Or if you prefer to cycle along the coastline to Nice or Antibes by bike, bike hire is rarely far away.

No 44 is a free navette, which runs up to the medieval village every 15 minutes from the town centre of Cagnes at Square Bourdet (the central bus station). It is ideal if you have luggage or shopping bags or when the weather is hot – it travels right up to the Château with a few strategic stops on the way. A free shuttle bus from the town No 45 runs to the beach roughly every hour if you don't feel like the 20 minute walk.
