Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Mandelieu-La-Napoule
1 bedroom, sleeps 2. Large, south facing balcony with sea view. Swimming pool
One bedroom apartment in an attractive complex, with gardens and a large swimming pool. It is on the 4th floor, with lift, and has a large, wrap-round balcony which is accessed from the lounge, kitchen and bedroom. As it faces east, through to south west, it enjoys the sun for most of the day. With views of the coastline to the left, it is mostly overlooked by the tree lined slope of the 'parc du San Peyre' giving a relaxing, secluded feel to the apartment. It has been recently re-decorated and furnished in a tasteful, modern style with a new kitchen and bathroom.
The position of the apartment is excellent as it has the advantage of being next to a golf course and only a few minutes walk to the centre of the village, the marina and the beach. La Napoule is in the next bay from Cannes and the glitzy attractions there, however is a more tranquil, typically French village with lots of lovely restaurants, small shops and a weekly market. The Castle on the sea front is a must for lunch.
Golf: There are a large selection of courses in the area but the most famous is next to the apartment - only 300m walk -
The old course. This 18-hole course (5,749 m, par 71) and its 9-hole course (2,118 m, par 33) are the oldest in the Alpes-Maritimes. Created in 1891, it enjoys great renown and constantly increases the number of its high-level events and competitions. Superb links set against a background of century-old parasol pines, with wide fairways, undulating greens, these two courses lack neither charm nor technical difficulties. Sheer delight fo all golf enthusiasts. Typically picturesque: the river-crossing required to gain access to hole n°3.

Golf course 5745 m
Men's handicap: 30 / Ladies handicap: 30

Tennis: There is a tennis club about 500 metres up the road from the apartment - Tennis de L'argentiere. Tennis racquets and ball are available in the apartment. The club had 9 courts, 2 training walls and a clubhouse with bar and food.
The Châteaux: The Castle occupies a magnificent seafront site, with a 'tea room' overlooking the sea, that is open from 11.00 to 17.00 for morning coffee, long lunches or afternoon tea.
The Château was first settled by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago and originally erected by the Villeneuve family during the 14th century. In 1918, the American artist Henry Clews acquired the ruined property, which he restored with his wife, Marie Elsie Whelen Goelet. The walled complex houses exhibition and performance spaces, whidh include the vaulted Spencer Gallery and the White Gallery, formerly a miniature theatre, as well as the main Courtyard. Fountains and topiary embellish the formal gardens laid out by Marie Clews. It is Henry Clews’ sculptural décor, combining wit and turn-of-the-century sensibility, that makes the Château de La Napoule, registered as a monument historique, such a fascinating excursion into architectural history.
