About the property

4 bedrooms, 1 baby room, 1 bathroom, 3 Italian showers, sauna room, sleeps 8-9

This beautiful villa with totally private pool has tremendous views over the perched medieval village of Bar sur Loup and the mountains beyond. The villa is very spacious (280 m2) with the main living room opening onto a delightful outdoor terrace overlooking the view on the 2nd floor and a newely renovated living room and kitchen on the 1st floor. There is an indoor dining room, TV den with breakfast area on the terrace.

The garden spreads over 3,500 m2 of terraced lawn with many different kinds of fruit trees and species of flowers. The property is set in a quiet residential area, in typical Provençal countryside, where you can hear the chirping of cicadas and yet it is only 25 km from Nice Airport. It is very well situated to explore the Cote d'Azur: Cannes, Antibes and Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. Other famous medieval villages such as St Paul de Vence, Gourdon and Tourrettes are close by.

Eze, Monaco and St Tropez are also near offering even more to see. There are also many golf courses in the area.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

It's clear from the photos that this villa is rather special and we certainly weren't disappointed.

The property has been recently renovated and the owners have spared no expense - the quality of everything is excellent and the layout and design works very well. We were amazed how spacious the villa is, both inside and out, and the views of Le Bar-sur-Loup and the surrounding countryside are spectacular - a photo can't really do them justice.

We've visited the south of France many times and so are quite familiar with many of the lovely villages in the area but hadn't visited nearby Valbonne before - that's a little treasure and a must-see place to visit with lots of nice places to eat.

And also worth mentioning that the owner, Lee is lovely - so friendly and helpful. We had a thunderstorm one day which took out the internet but she flew back from Paris the next day to ensure it was fixed!

Would definitely recommend this property.

Very nice villa with great view

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay in the villa with my family. We spent a very good time in this peaceful villa in the heart of the hinterlands of the Riviera.

The location is perfect to enjoy both the activities of the Riviera (Nice, Cannes, …) and the activities of the hinterland (Grasse, Gourdon, …). The villa is also easily accessible from the airport (around 30 minutes by car from Nice Cote d’Azur Airport).

The place is charming and the view is great. The villa is spacious, has been recently renovated (inside and outside), is well equipped (kitchen tools, bathroom towel, sheets, … are provided) and clean. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and the “pétanque” ground (typical French game of bowls).

The owner is welcoming and accommodating and has given us precious recommendations to enjoy the best spots of the region.

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