About Milly

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!

Milly purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Milly chose Le Bar-sur-Loup

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a lovely stay! We enjoyed the pool, apartment and surroundings. Recommend a trip to Gourdon.

Perfect Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The Upper Garden Apartment is more like a home, very spacious, clean, quiet and beautifully decorated. It was perfect for two couples for 6 nights, with two bedrooms with en suite full bathrooms. The views from our balcony were spectacular.

We visited in early May so we didn’t use the beautiful pool but some hardy guests did. We used the well-equipped kitchen a lot for breakfasts and dinners. Having owners Milly and Art available on-site was great, gracious hosts hosts who provided helpful info on the apartment, Le Bar sur Loup and the surrounding area.

Some of the conveniences we appreciated were the diswasher, washing machine and drying rack, totally modern bathrooms, King sized bed in one room, two twins in the other. The entire place has been renovated but retains the provencal charm we were hoping for. And it seemed bigger than the photos here.

A large Casino Supermarche is just a few miles away and there are excellent restaurants within walking distance of La Bastide. We walked to one, Hotel Particulier des Jasmins, for a wonderful dinner with a spectacular view.

The roads are narrow and winding in this region so it helps to have a small car with GPS. One of the highlights of the area was a visit to the old walled city of Gourdon nearby. We also did day trips to Monaco, Cap d’Antibes and Cannes, all about an hour’s drive or less.

The only improvement I would suggest is adding a couple of luggage stands to the smaller bedroom. Everything else was great and we highly recommend you book a stay at La Bastide Saint Christophe.

Wonderful visit in the French countryside

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want for a lovely stay and Milly is there to answer any questions, but never intrusive. We were 2 couples who loved to spend the evening with a glass of wine on the balcony while enjoying the beautiful views. Clean and with even more than was promised, we can strongly recommend you stay with Milly. Lots of places to visit within 30 minutes, tho be advised that you may often be driving on narrow country roads so be sure to take full car insurance.

Could not have had a more enjoyable holiday!

Spacious, comfortable, a perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the Upper Garden Apartment exceeded our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Communication and directions were faultless and Milly and Art were the perfect hosts, available if you needed them but happy to leave us to enjoy our stay. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and stayed cool in the heat of the day.

The outside space was delightful, a covered area for eating, a balcony for enjoying the views and the covered carport a bonus. The swimming pool was well maintained and a lovely, private spot to cool off.

Our 2 grown up boys enjoyed some healthy competition playing their own version of boules on the pitch below our apartment.

The village of Le Bar sur Loup is within easy walking distance and has several small shops and restaurants, be prepared to climb a few steps when exploring the village!

A short drive away there are well stocked supermarkets offering a wide selection.

The location is ideal for exploring the coast and the spectacular hill top villages. We had day trips to Cannes and Antibes and afternoons spent in Grasse and Gourdon.

Overall, a super family holiday made all the more enjoyable by staying in such a fabulous apartment.

The property was stunning. Better than I could have ever imagined.

  • 5 of 5

Millie and her husband were so kind and helpful during every step of our stay. Their home and property are picture-perfect, their hospitality was incomparable. Millie picked up up at the bus stop, helped us have pizza ready when we arrived, made reservations for our meal at a fantastic local restaurant, had fresh croissants and fruit for our breakfast, and even loaned us clothes because our luggage never arrived. Amazing people in an amazing location!

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment based on its proximity to Nice, the lovely photos and the fact that it had all the details we required, namely a pool, outside eating area, dishwasher, washing machine (required for 2 small children) and secure car parking. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeded our expectations. The apartment was spacious and nicely furnished, the view from the balcony was stunning (much enjoyed throughout the holiday) and the pool area was clean and well stocked with sun loungers/umbrellas. The owners (Milly and Art) were most welcoming and friendly, providing us with simple instructions to find th house along with lots of information and tips on places to visit within the area. They also provided an unexpected selection of toys and books that our children happily enjoyed throughout the holiday. Bar sur Loup has good local shops for purchasing provisions as well as some lovely local restaurants. We would definitely recommend this property as a good place use as a base for trips to the main attractions in the area as well as being somewhere to relax and soak up the sunshine!

Beautifully appointed apartment...

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a peaceful stay in a lovely part of France.

Milly's directions from Nice airport were spot on. We arrived late and even had a pizza ordered for us!

The apartment was exactly as listed, and there was plenty of bedding, good quality linen etc. The kitchen had everything you would need to feed and water your family. A large fridge with a good sized freezer compartment, all the crockery, pots and pans you would need are there, and Milly's directions on the way in from the airport also included the location of the local well stocked supermarket,

The view from the wide balcony which opens out from the living room is stunning, capturing the view down the Loup valley. There are comfy chairs, sofa, TV, DVD and a hi-fi with plenty of CDs if you forget to bring your own. One criticism: Michael Bolton has no place in *anyone's* CD collection!

There is a really handy dresser in the living room filled with toys and jigsaws, which we really enjoyed as we took two young 'uns aged three and five.

The two bedrooms were nicely done, and the absence of aircon wasn't really a stress as there are quiet fans in each room.

The swimming pool is lovely, refreshing, spotlessly maintained and with great views over the valley.

Finally the apartment is well situated for exploring the hilltop towns and villages around the southern coast (Cannes, Monaco, etc.). Ourselves; we went to Cabris (enjoyed fantastic Moule et Frites dinner at the "Mini Grill Restaurant") and Thoule-Sur-Mer which has a fantastic small quiet bay especially good for young children.

Bar-sur-Loup itself is lovely. Quiet, pretty and embodying the sleepy French town vibe that is part of the reason for going there.

As you can see, we enjoyed it.

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.

Other Activities: go-karting, wine tasting
