About the property

Villa in Callian, Fayence, Nr. Grasse and Cannes, Cote d'Azur, France - Secluded, close to village, and only 45 minutes from Nice airport

This spacious south-west facing house is situated in just under 1 acre of terraced hillside garden, once the ancient olive groves that surrounded the pretty medieval hilltop village of Callian, just 10 mins walk from the house. The views look south some 25km to the Massif de Esterel and Massif des Maures, the mountain ranges bordering the Mediterranean towns and beaches of St Raphael, Fréjus, St Maxime and St Tropez. Beaches can be reached in about 45 mins. Callian itself is small and charming but nevertheless boasts all the basic necessities, and down in the plain below the village all the usual shops are represented. Nice, Cannes and Antibes are within 45 minutes by car with all their well-known attractions including the Picasso and Matisse museums, and Renoir's house. One popular visit is to Grasse, 25km away, with its perfume distilleries and Fragonard museum. Locally there are plenty of excellent places to eat out ranging from pizzerias to Michelin star restaurants.

Beautiful family home with plenty of space, pool and views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Callian. We were expecting the house to be lovely, but it was even better than we imagined and bigger than I had realised. We had chosen a four bedroom house as my 3 children need a bit of space from one another to keep harmony, but we felt we could almost fit another family in and still not feel on top of one another! It is a real family home with lovely furnishings and and lots of the owner's colourful paintings decorating the rooms.

The house is about 10 mins walk from the centre of the village which is a small very pretty 'perched' village with tiny winding alleys at the heart of it, and a handful of good restaurants. Although it's up in the hills, it's 5 mins in the car down to the main road on the plain where there are a good choice of supermarkets, and road links to other places to visit such as Cannes and Grasse.

We felt very privileged to be allowed to stay in such a lovely house!
