AUTHENTIC FRENCH ROMANCE, LEAFY GARDENS, GREAT VIEWS & WIFI

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Cagnes-sur-Mer - La Cagnotte

2 bedrooms, plenty of charm, garden and terrace with sea view

La Cagnotte will completely capture your heart! This darling village house is filled with charm and is the perfect example of the French getaway we all dream of. Situated on the edge on the village, the house is accessed through a leafy gateway you almost wouldn’t know was there. You arrive in the garden with a full frontal view of the old, stone home. The garden lies on a few levels, in front of the house is a large terrace area with BBQ and large outside dining table and seating. There are 2 or 3 different levels at the side and back of the house with grassy sections, flower beds, potted plants and wonderful old trees, typical of the area. A hammock is available and garden seating, where you can laze midst the jasmine and lavender smells.

When you enter the house through the front door you arrive into a large open plan area, the kitchen is the first part of the room and this is filled with wonderful food things – pots and bowls, baskets and jars, books and utensils, herbs and spices. There is a super large stainless steel oven with 6 gas rings, a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, nespresso coffee machine, juicer, kettle and just about everything you would want in a kitchen. La Cagnotte is a home, not just a rental property so it is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. A wooden dining room table with 4 wicker armchairs and cushions lies beside the kitchen opposite a wood burning, wrought iron fireplace. Beside the window is placed a comfy chair, where you can sit and read overlooking the front terrace. A curved staircase takes you to to the bedroom level.

A bedroom can be found at the top of the stairs, there is a double bed, wardrobe area, book shelves and pretty window with flower pots on the sill. The bathroom opposite is white with natural greeny-stoney-grey tiles. There is a walk-in shower, wash-hand basin, w.c and storage area.

The second bedroom in the house has a double bed, large sofa, a TV with English news and French channels, a small desk table and cupboard space. There is a beautiful large window which allows plenty of light to pour in and a charming arched doorway which leads you directly into the garden.

If you leave the house by this door and climb the stairs to your right on the outside of the house, you will arrive at a top terrace with sea views, as well as a view of the Chateau and medieval village of Haut de Cagnes. There is a table, chairs and bench – where you can sit and enjoy a sunny aperitif at the end of the day.

The house does not have parking but street parking is plentiful, the owners are also happy to provide their 2 bicycles if you fancy a cycle around the village. The old stone houses have thick walls so tend to keep cool in the summer months, La Cagnotte also has the added advantage of doors in both the front and back of the house, allowing for a cool breeze to filter throughout. This little house has kept its old authentic, wooden beams and floor tiles in the house and the garden – it is hard to think of a better place in which to spend a well deserved break in such romantic French surroundings.

La Cagnotte is a short stroll to a good selection of restaurants and the village's main square, which is a hive of activity during the warmer months. The town below is within easy walking distance, where you can find a boulangerie, food market, boutiques, supermarket, cafes, post office, etc. The free shuttle bus runs every 15 minutes from the town up to the village so that is also an option if you don't feel like walking.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS PLACE.

  • 4 out of 5
My husband and I and our mastiff stayed for almost three weeks. The cottage is decorated to perfection and the perfect location for day trips in every direction. Cannes, Nice, St. Paul's and many more charming villages are all within a half hours drive. We are traveling for a year renting several properties skewed and this is the first time "fully equipped kitchen" meant exactly that! I love to cook and this felt like being back in my own kitchen.

While the cottage is bijou, it's perfectly workable for a couple or family for a short period of time, and the garden is incredibly done, on several levels and becomes a large extension to the indoor space. The whole place is charming and relaxing, right out of a book.

The only problem are the flies. The gardener suggested it might have to do with a neighbors livestock, but once the sun hit the garden the flies were a huge issue, inside and out. It's too bad because the cottage has obviously been renovated and decorated with care and love by the owners and this is no fault of theirs, but wouldn't have been fair to leave a review without mentioning it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write about your trip in the little medieval village of Haut de Cagnes - we are delighted you enjoyed the house so much and had plenty of opportunity to use the kitchen to the full and enjoy each and every corner of the garden and terraces. It is unfortunate that you were there just at the time when the flies came out - thankfully it is for a very short period and the summer heat drives them all away. Enjoy the rest of your trips and hopefully we will see you back in the village again in the future.

The charming, fortified medieval village of Haut de Cagnes is the oldest district of Cagnes sur Mer – ideally situated between Nice and Antibes and only a short car journey from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport and within walking distance to the sea.

Here you are close to a boulangerie for warm fresh bread each morning and an excellent selection of restaurants for great dining. Local food markets, shops and outdoor cafes are all nearby. The area provides a perfect hopping on point to multiple destinations and attractions with its excellent rail and bus services.

Crowned with the original Grimaldi Castle, this enchanting medieval village with charming cobbled streets and remarkable ancient buildings transports you back in time to the 13th Century. The serenity and simplicity found in these pretty French villages allows you to enjoy the sun, sea and breath-taking views in a very relaxed atmosphere. Known as the ‘Montmartre of the French Rivieria’, Haut de Cagnes was the haunt of Renoir, Modigliani, Soutine, Yves Klein, Bardot and Cocteau. It’s easy to see why many famous artists lived or found their inspiration here, falling in love with the soft Mediterranean light and honest authenticity.

But this charming, perched village has so much more to offer, with its tiers of tiny streets, climbing soft stone walls and colourful houses bursting with history. On the main street and Place du Château, there are plenty of bustling restaurants and cafés plus numerous historical cultural events and colourful festivals are held during the year.

A short stroll down the hill will bring you to the town of Cagnes, which provides all amenities such as a boulangerie, a patisserie, a supermarket, post office, the main bus square and a wonderful covered food market. Close to the town centre lies the Renoir Museum, the Hippodrome for horse racing and Cros de Cagnes – the seaside resort of Cagnes sur Mer with its private and public beaches.

There is so much you can do without a car, such as; shopping in Cannes, people watching in St Tropez, perfume sampling in Grasse, gambling in Monaco, lunching in Italy and buying art in St Paul – all easily accessible and inexpensive with most bus journeys costing only €1,50. Or if you prefer to cycle along the coastline to Nice or Antibes by bike, bike hire is rarely far away.

No 44 is a free navette, which runs up to the medieval village passing outside La Cagnotte every 15 minutes from the town centre of Cagnes at Square Bourdet (the central bus station). It is ideal if you have luggage or shopping bags or when the weather is hot – it travels right up to the Château with a few strategic stops on the way.
