From the Owner

After years of searching we bought this property the first day we saw it (you will understand why if you stay there). As an Englishman living in Asia I find this the perfect retreat to give all our European family and friends who visit, a holiday. The provencale-stlye house is perfectly private with no visible neighbours. While being situated between the gastronomic town of Mougins and picturesque Valbonne within 45 mins you can be in Cannes, Nice/airport, Eze, Monaco, Italy, Saint Tropez or the Gorges du Verdon (Europe's equivalent of the Grand Canyon). This is the perfect location for golfers, being surrounded by 6 world-class golf courses, some of which you can see from the house.

The closest beach is on La Croissette in Cannes with fantastic restaurants and sporting activities, a 20 minute drive away. 25 mins away is the beach at Juan Les Pins which attracts the young and trendy. My favourite is Plage Keller at La Garoupe in Antibes where they have valet parking and fantastic food on the beach. You'll need to call ahead to book your spot before you go.


The property is accessible from Marseille or Nice airport with Nice being much closer at 20 minutes. Car hire is recommended.

From the Owner

The house is situated at the end of a hill-top cul de sac with mature gardens (~40 olive trees) and as such is 100% private (the neighbours are about 80m away and are very friendly, largely non-French, english speakers). Some properties have an infinity POOL, this house has an infinity GARDEN with unbeatable panoramic views: to the left the Meditteranean, Mougins and the villages below; to the right, the town of Grasse and the hills. Naturally we eat outside under the jasmine (all garden furniture is high-end teak). We typically town-hop/sight see for 3-4 days and then spend a few days in the house as, being secluded, it is a beautiful, private retreat. Shopping - there are 2 supermarkets within 8 mins, bakers, pizza, groceries and Cannes for fashion, bigger items, etc...
