This handsome villa was built by a well-known Cote d’Azur architect in the style of a small chateau with Provencal influences and a splendid tower. It is in an idyllic setting, built on high ground, backed by oak forests and open protected countryside with a profusion of wild flowers, and enjoys simply stunning views of the sea. It is set in a beautiful mature garden, part of which is formal and leads down, past a little pond and waterfall, to the swimming pool terrace. There is also a stream leading to a larger pond. The woodland garden (where one can enjoy a myriad of flowers, flowering shrubs and highly unusual specimen trees - some dating back several hundreds years) is left untouched in order to protect the wild flowers and orchids. The interior of the house has an imposing grand staircase, vaulted ceilings, 15th, 16th and 17th Century wooden doors & cabinets, and hand-made tiles from Salernes. The décor throughout is light, cool and elegant, with subdued Provencal colours. It is most beautifully and appropriately furnished with a combination of antique and modern furniture and an eclectic selection of artefacts and objets d‘art collected on the owners’ extensive travels. Everything is of top quality from the teak deck chairs on the terrace to the ornate masonry and kitchen equipment (the owners are both gourmet cooks!)

This is a wonderful property in a wonderful setting – and whilst the only sound you can hear is that of birdsong – you are close to the excitement of the Riviera. The coast is 25 minutes away at Cap d’Antibes and Cannes and Nice are only 30 minutes. Inland is the beautiful countryside and numerous medieval hilltop fortress towns including Opio, St. Paul de Vence, Tourettes sur Loup and Mougins, a gourmets treat! (Do visit Gourdon, but only if you have a head for heights!). Equally you can visit the other well-known Riviera resorts such as Cap Ferrat, Monaco and Monte Carlo. There are several golf courses in the immediate area, riding and tennis also available nearby. Nice Airport is 30 minutes away.

Price: Ranging from £4875 - £5850+ per week, depending upon season and length of let.
