About the property

Bedrooms 6, Bathrooms 5, Sleeps 9

South of France calling! Now is the time to take that longed-for special vacation to the famous Côte d'Azur, the French Riviera. The Bastide des Roses is the perfect setting for a relaxed but gracious holiday with family or friends near the famed town of Grasse. Grasse of course is famed for its flowers and it’s ancient perfume industry, and sits like a grand dame in the hills above Nice, Cannes, and the Côte d’Azur and its Mediterranean Sea. Here is a jewel of a French Villa set in splendid gardens with ancient olive trees, cypress, oleander, lavender, figs, pears, and cherries. An 18 meter pool and a gracious pool house beckon for a refreshing dip in the summer sun, or for your morning exercise. Breakfast on the terrace, Dinner in the garden, Fireflies to light your path, crickets to serenade, and the perfume of roses, rosemary and lavender, treat all your senses. In a word, it is idyllic.

La Bastide: The home itself offers 6 Air-conditioned bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, of impeccable quality, suitable for the most discerning, yet with a relaxed style to make you immediately feel right at home. The house has a charming living room with comfortable and inviting furnishings, Provençal colours for a light mood, a fireplace for cooler evenings, and some pleasing art to keep you interested. There is a separate, formal dining room, a TV room with satellite and a working fireplace, an eat-in kitchen, with a large American fridge, a professional stove, 2 ovens, a dishwasher, a microwave, a Nespresso machine and all that you could ask for, whether you want to cook yourself or let us organise a cook to come in.

For out-door living there two delightful terraces; off the living room the western terrace is perfect for the early morning sun, and your first coffee, and croissant. Later on, enjoy its vine-covered eating area offering a shady respite from the summer heat. The southern terrace faces towards the valley of Grasse, perfect for enjoying a sea view, and the afternoon sun, as well as a glorious sunset as it sets behind the hills of Grasse. The pool house with fireplace offers covered but open outdoor living even in cooler weather. The pool area is completely private, with no neighbors, and no passers-by; its encircled by high hedges and greenery; a total haven from the " Paparazzi, in case that happens to be a concern!

Of course, the Côte d'Azur can keep you amused for a life-time. You will stroll the streets of Grasse, and visit the perfume Museum, but that is only the bare beginning. The are is so rich in art Museums that you could not see them all in a month; the Picasso Museum, in Cap d'Antibes, the Matisse Museum, Le Ferdinand Leger, the Jean Cocteau Museum, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Theatre de la Photographie et de l'Image, and on and on. Of course, there are the beaches, and famed towns, Cannes, Nice, Eze, and Monaco. Restaurants from Michelin-starred palaces, to casual sea-side bistros, markets with incredible offerings starting with local seafood, and the incredible produce of the desirable mediterranean diet.

This is a great property for year around pleasure.

The place to go at Alpes-Maritimes

  • 5 of 5

"I have stayed at Bastide des Roses a number of times, and each time the grounds with their roses, olive trees, and scented plants impressed me. The swimming pool with its pool house is not only gorgeous but long enough to swim laps in. The house itself is tastefully decorated in Provence style, and the beds are comfortable. I would definitely like to visit again" Peter S.-W.

Poetic luxury, impeccable style - a true gem!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, stylish property makes you feel like a romantic character in movie or a book set in Provence. It ticks all the boxes of a perfect luxury stay with its timeless charm, unpretentious glamour and the impeccable taste fit for a sophisticated artist as well as a family seeking comfort and refined style.

The swimming pool approached through a rose garden, the olive groves surrounding the gracious historical building, the sundowns spent on the cobble stone paved patio with its ‘roof’ of grapes hanging from the old vines where all you can hear is the sound of crickets... it all makes for a perfect quite retreat just a stone throw away from all the fashionable buzz of the french riviera. We have stayed twice already and hope to come many more times again. A truly inspiring place!

Heavenly Provence Experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a historic Bastide with large grounds and a stunning huge swimming pool which is hidden behind a rose garden in the back of the property. We stayed there many times and hope to be able to come back soon again. The owners are very charming American-German and the house is a picture book , fairy tale like Provencal Bastide in classic style. The place is quite remote between Valbonne and Grasse a nice drive through narrow country lanes from the main road until you arrive at the gate. Once you have passed the gate and the caretaker´s house you are in the middle of a Provencal fairy tale rose and cyprus tree garden. The house is historic but was restored some years ago, you can tell by the bathrooms that the property was probably renovated about 20 years ago , but this is not a drawback. The terraces and especially the large pool with a furnished pool house for elegant Riviera style afternoons and evenings , the vast lawns and the many shady corners unter olive and pine and palm trees offer many opportunities to spend the day in solitude or with a big family or larger group of friends. The kitchen is very large, equipped with everything you need and nearby Vallbonne offers plenty of gourmet shopping . The place is so beautiful and big that you don't feel like leaving it but there are a few fine restaurants in Mougins, Valbonne and Grasse in easy driving distance.
