About Jeanna Morgan

I am a film producer, I built my house some time ago, it now has a beautiful very mature garden with an olive grove, fruit orchard, outside kitchen, barbeque large boule court, 5 different tables / areas to eat, and sit, depending upon the weather and the the light. I and my family three girls 7 grandchildren all love it. it is very child friendly, the interior is contemporary shabby chic, mainly white,

Jeanna Morgan purchased this villa in 1985

Why Jeanna Morgan chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

I loved the view in the gorge, there are no other houses in sight,, you can see straight down the gorge to the sea. It has a magical remote feeling, set in the Courmettes, I built the house on a piece of land covered with old olive trees and thyme. Despite the many years and more properties around, it still feels the same.

What makes this villa unique

It is a house that allows you to do many things, swim play boule, or just sit and read. I love cooking so the kitchen both inside and out are incredibly well equipped.

We have a herb garden as well as fruit, figs, peaches, plums, cherries. all appearing at different times of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are five friends who get together every year, I live in New York and my girl friends live in Ireland, I don't think I can remember being anywhere so peaceful and beautiful, we had a wonderful time.

We are two families with 4 children between us, the house is beautiful, very large, with lots of space outside for the children to run around. We cooked outside near the pool for both lunch and dinner, the weather was equisite, I can strongly recommend.

Most Memorable Time in France Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Les Courmettes is wonderful. A very comfortable, quiet, beautifully designed house with the best equipped kitchen I've seen and a huge garden with a spectacular view over the olive grove down the Gorges du Loup to Cagnes sur Mer without another house in sight. Not the usual holiday rental, a lovely family home. I'd rebook this year but can't as I live in Asia & my wife has just had another baby. We and our other children loved the house and the exquisite garden, full of plants in pots, the large pool with an out-door bar area, and what has to be the best boules court in the South of France (I became a real professional!). The fabulous walled medieval village of Tourrettes sur Loup is nearby. I can't recommend this property enough ... a real must!
