Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

I moved with my husband Art to the south of France with the idea of staying for a couple of years but we fell in love with the area and its amazing climate.

We were lucky enough to find "La Bastide Saint Christophe" and to make it our home.

I hope to offer our guests a sense of the beauty and tranquility that enchanted us when we moved here more than 20 years ago!

A great find!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the top apartment for 3 nights in late June, we were fortunate enough to be there the weekend of the Fete de la St Jean, which is a major weekend long event with bonfires, dinners, traditional music and dancing. The apartment is well equipped, has a gorgeous panoramic view and the pool was just fantastic. There are a few restaurants nearby within walking distance and it is a great location for touring Grasse, Gourdon and surround villages. Make sure you take free Florian confectionery tour just a few minutes drive.

Art and Milley were great hosts and very helpful, they live on site and are available if you should need assistance.

Although the top apartment has 2 bedrooms, the 2nd bedroom off of the kitchen is quite small (perfect for kids) with 2 small twin beds, so for 4 adults you should consider one of their larger apartments. Also note the 5th bed is in same bedroom as the double bed. But we loved it and it was so much nicer than being in a cramped hotel room or B&B.

la Bastide St Christophe, Bar sur Loupe

  • 5 of 5

We booked a small apartment at this lovely house and got a lovely top floor apartment with stunning views over the countryside.

The owners were there to greet us and made us very welcome. They have so much local knowledge and speak so many languages it was fantastic and helped us settle into the area and its attractions very quickly.

The owners have maintained the apartments in an authentic provencal style but with all the mod cons you need for a relaxing holiday where you can fully self cater.

The house had a beautiful swimming pool which we could use which was lovely especially as the weather was so warm. We had our own outside private space which was great too.

We found the area really interesting with Grasse nearby and only 30 mins to the coast. Being a little higher, it was a bit cooler than down at the sea, which was very pleasant.

Loads of shops for food etc. very nearby but I would recommend hiring a car so you can get out and enjoy the medieval fortified towns as well as the coast.

The property was exactly as described but no - maybe better! The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and anything we needed, they helped us with. The place was spotless when we arrived and was easy to keep clean and maintain during our stay as all cleaning stuffs were fully provided. Wi FI was great for my teenage son to keep in touch with his friends.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone - from couples to those with families as there is a wealth of activities as well as being a peaceful location.

We will definitely be rebooking at some point next year.

wonderful setting and superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

We cannot fault this apartment. The view is wonderful, the pool is so relaxing and the apartment is wonderful - it is fully equiped, comfortable and full of character. We have been here twice now and intend to return again. Milly and Art are the perfect hosts and the whole experience is one to be treasured. Role on next year, so we can visit again!!!

Excellent TOP apartment with very nice view

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed 3 months at La Bastide Saint Christophe (work not pleasure unfortunately) and had a very good time there. The Top apartment is much bigger than I expected, with a large livingroom and bedroom and an extra bedroom. Even the well equipped kitchen is rather big I believe.

Very friendly owners who take really good care of their guests.

The surroundings are beautiful and very quiet, with Nice or Cannes at being less than half an hour away with the car.

I grand 5 stars because I have spend 3 very happy months there and it always felt like being on holiday when I got back from work.

Location

From the Owner

We were actually looking for what seemed like the impossible property! A characterful house big enough for us to live in and rent out holiday apartments somewhere in the Grasse area or a village nearby. To top it all it had to be south facing, not on a main road, and walking distance to the local boulangerie.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Nice at 25 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Le Bar sur Loup at 500 Metres Nearest Ferry : Nice at 25 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Golf de la Grande Bastide in Opio at 5 Kilometres Nearest Train : Grasse at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Grasse at 15 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : L'Ecole des Filles at 500 Metres Nearest Ski : Gréolières les Neiges at 20 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Villeneuve Loubet at 20 Kilometres Car: recommended

The perched village of Le Bar sur Loup is located between Grasse and Nice at the beginning of the picturesque Gorges du Loup. Here, the best of both worlds exists with the peace and beauty of the countryside and the excellent proximity to the towns on the Riviera.

The village itself has good facilities, including numerous restaurants, several bakeries, general store, pharmacy and post office.

Facilities

From the Owner

Our initial reaction after the first viewing was a great big headache.........Maybe it was the wallpaper and crépi (all now thankfully removed!) or it was just too much to take in, but it was scarily perfect for us! Gorgeous authentic village, lovely views, beautiful old olive grove, characterful architecture, place for a pool and walking distance not only to the boulangerie but to excellent restaurants as well!
