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!

Very welcoming hosts.Lovely studio...very comfortable,great views.Beautifully kept pool.Pretty village though a cafe would have been nice. Good for exploring the hinterland (40 mins to an hour to reach the coast) so would suit walkers and those wishing to visit all the beautiful surrounding villages.Would go again as 1 week is not enough.

PS. Loved Riviera Radio!!!

Very helpful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I have never stayed somewhere where the owners are so helpful-they helped us find everything we needed and made phone calls for us. We stayed in the studio appartment and it's very good value for the price, perfect for a couple, and has amazing views. I would definitely recommend La Bastide Saint Christophe!

Überaus angenehmer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche im Top-Apartement verbracht und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Die Einrichtung ist ausgesprochen wohnlich, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Die Begrüßung durch die Besitzerin war sehr nett und wir erhielten gleich ein paar wichtige Informationen zum Ort und der Umgebung. Auch darüber hinaus war sie jederzeit für Fragen da, ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein.

Wir haben die beeindruckende Landschaft mit ihrem Abwechslungsreichtum genossen.

Vielen Dank für den schönen Urlaub.

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.

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.

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!
