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 charming place in Provence.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location.

We were lucky to have found La Bastide, it certainly worth a 5 stars reviews on HomeAway.

The place is really nice, perfectly clean, and Milly is so kind that you feel like a friend here, not a client.

Lovely garden and pool. This place is a perfect spot to start exploring Provence and Cote d'Azur.

Very close to La bastide we visited Tourrette Sur Lup (so nice!), Saint Paul de Vence (so artistic!), then Cagnes sur Mer, Grasse, Saint Tropez, the wonderful coast of Esterelle, Cannes, Antibes, Eze etc etc...

I can recommend this wonderful place and the surrounding area.

Bastide St Christophe - Olive Grove apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 grown children and I spent a week mid-July in the Olive Grove apartment at Bastide St Christophe. The apartment is very spacious with 2 good sized bedrooms, large living room, bathroom and kitchen. It really feels more like a small house since you have a garden with bbq and outdoor seating. The house is terraced into the mountain and the apartments have views across the moutnains. There is a provate terrace for the Olive Grove apartment that runs along the living room and bedroom with beautiful views to the mountains. It catches the sun from early afternoon through to sunset - around 8pm in the summer. There is a table and chairs on this terrace so you can eat there as well, though we tended to have dinner in the garden. The property has been cleverely sub-divided so you are not overlooked and feel private even though others are also renting in the same large building. The pool is excellent and a good size for swimming, also the pool area is well equipped - nice sun loungers, umbrellas. The property is very well equipped - the kitchen has everything you could need including coffee maker, wine cooler etc.We liked the fact that its less than 10 minute walk into the centre of the village so its possible to buy groceries and go to 3-4 restaurants without driving anywhere.

Milly is extremely helpful and the property is professionally run..no hidden charges or extras.

This area is also really nice - mountains, small villages, great views. easy access to Vance, Grasse, Valbonne etc and a 40 minute drive to good beaches at Theoule sur mer.

Overall an excellent week and we were very happy with the choice of Bastide St Christophe - would recommend it without hesitiation.

Our Honeymoon at "La Bastide Saint Christophe"

  • 5 of 5

First we want to thank Milly and Art for the wonderful time at their outstanding appartment "Olive Grove". From the first moment on we felt very welcomed due to the friendly and warm atmosphere. Our daughter at the age of two had a brilliant time in here own garden ;o).

As you can imagine the apartment was furnished lovely and with a beautiful view from our balcony.

Le Bar Surloup is a lovely, little town and Cannes, Nice, Grasse are reachable with bus or car - even if you have child.

Resuming we had a wondeful time and we can absolutely recommend this wonderful housing with no doubt to everyone.

Home from Home at the Olive Grove

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this apartment enough. Clean comfort able with every facilty provided, dishwasher washing machine, etc. Lovely view from bedroom and lounge.The very friendly and helpful owners on site for advice should you need it. Booked the local restaurant for us. We managed to use the lovely pool a few times before it became very stormy and rainy, but we relaxed watching DVD's borrowed from the owners and read from the array of books provided. We will visit again

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 weeks in Le Bar, and we lived in two different apartments. We had our little baby with us and all we needed for her was provided for on arrival, which made us feel very welcome. The rooms are homely decorated with a tough of provence and in good taste, with the possibility to enjoy a dvd, a book or the nice view of the valley/village. We even used the beautiful pool, in january, but I would recommend a warmer month!

We visited the local marked in Pre du Lac every monday, to buy olives, cheese and vegetable, and would recommend a visit.

The landscape surrounding Le Bar provides a vide range of beautiful walking tracks, up to Gordon or trough small tunnels.

We warmly recommend the hospitable friendly hosts and there comfortable home.

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.

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!
