About The Experience
La Madone offers a quiet and charming French Riviera experience, from the discovery of the small villages nearby, to the beautiful countryside where famous artists such as Matisse, Picasso, Braque and others chose to spend part of their life. Grasse, the world famous capital of perfumes, lies approx. 15 km from the coastline and is protected by the foothills of the Alps behind it. The excellent climate has attracted the European aristocracy for over 100 years, Queen Victoria being a regular visitor of Grasse some 130 years ago.
Typical Provencal villa, nested in its own 3.000 m2 garden with impressive panoramic views till the sea, La Madone is an excellent choice for a group of friends or family. Though you'll find yourself surrounded by ancient olive trees and palm trees, you will also be within driving distance of Cannes, Nice, Monte-Carlo, and the beaches. The villa is about 2,5 kilometres from the centre of Grasse, where you can rent bicycles. Five minutes' drive will take you to a nice 18-hole golf course, and there are others in the region. Cannes, known for its famous film festival, is a 25 minute drive away.
