About E. Morgan
Hello! I'm an actor /writer and live in Cardiff when in the UK. I have appeared in scores of television plays and series and for many years a member of the BBC Drama Rep. Voice overs include the Angels Destiny and Rhapsody in Gerry Anderson's Captain Scarlet - Brit visitors may know this series! I have written over 30 performed plays a few of which were set in France, for Radio TV and theatre and currently on my third novel . I love France and have done since I first visited on a school exchange. It is wonderful to feel as at home in France as in my native land , Wales.
Incidentally I have been advertising with Holiday-rentals for about 11 years.
E. Morgan purchased this villa in 2010
Why E. Morgan chose Cagnes-sur-Mer
Around five years ago I began to look for a smaller property. I was living at the time in a large house in Vence, not far away, which had a separate apartment for letting. I feel families like to have a pool to themselves, I know i do, so although i could remain in the house while visitors were in the flat i would never use use 'Their' pool. I needed to downsize anyway so finding a three bed house with pool seemed perfect. With a smaller terrace at the back it also offered extra privacy. The house is close to the airport , the coast, and this year -after two years of building works - we shall have the new Polygone Riviera. We are all looking forward to strolling across the road to one of the restaurants or catching the sales in Au Printemps, or even a visit to the Cinema where frequently films are subtitled in English .
The family is going to spend New Year in the ski centre of Auron - a delightful little Alpine village in the Alpes Maritimes. We shall take the bus that runs regularly from the Airport and shall stay for a few days hopefully to ski but if not the youngsters will have other activities including a skating rink. Another plus for the location.
What makes this villa unique
I lived for many years in the Gard - a lovely town Uzès but I wanted a more easily accessible location. The Riviera was the perfect choice for me ,but it was as important not to lose sight of old France - the France of so many beloved films like Clochemerle and so many more . And these villages and small towns are still close at hand despite the sophisticated lifestyle of the multinational Riviera. If you come to my house there is a book on the coffee table Villages Perché. Browse through it and take a trip into the hinterland and you will be in a different world. For art lovers there is a particular frisson when one visits Renoir's house in Cagnes and his studio exactly as he left it , and only a kilometre away.There is always something to see and do here, whether it be equestrian events on the famous race course at Cagnes or the many markets nearby, or in summer the great Jazz Festivals in Cagnes and Nice or further afield in Monaco.
