Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Cagnes-sur-Mer - La Perle

1 Bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

La Perle is an enchanting private home on the two top floors of an old village house, in the medieval village of Haut de Cagnes. The view from the terrace is absolutely stunning both day and night. It is like being on the bridge of a ship.

Both floors are air conditioned, and there is high speed internet. On the lower floor, there is a bedroom with a sea view and a queen size bed (160 x 200 cm). There is a marble tiled bathroom with a shower and washing machine. On the top floor is the living/dining-room, with a fireplace and a modern kitchen. There is a 3 ring induction stove, a microwave, an oven, a dishwasher, a kettle, and a toaster. All along the main wall of the room, there are windows and sliding glass doors, opening onto the terrace. The terrace comes with an awning, that makes it a very pleasant place to be, even on the hottest summer day.

There is a satellite-TV (French and Swedish), a DVD-player, and a Bose stereo. Telephone is included, to landlines in Europe and North America. A notebook pc can be supplied on demand. The bookcase offers books, DVDs and CDs.

About Mrs Petersen

My name is Lena, and I am Swedish. Back home, I used to be a business journalist, writing mainly about the psychology behind it all. But like many people, I always had a dream about living in France. In 2002, my dream came through, and I found Haut de Cagnes - a hidden gem. I have never regretted it! Nowadays, however, I also have a small apartment in Stockholm - that I can rent out too!

Mrs Petersen purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Mrs Petersen chose Cagnes-sur-Mer

I fell in love with La Perle when I first saw it - the view, the light, the atmosphere. It is unique and is really worth its name!

The first six years I only used it as a rental property. People just loved it, and many come back regularly. Two years ago, I completely refurbished it and made it my own home. Since I also own a studio on the ground floor of the building - and an apartment in Stockholm - I can still rent it out and let others enjoy this lovely place!

What makes this apartment unique

La Perle is a mix between historic and modern. It is very well equipped, and you will find everything you need (if not, just let me know!). Looking out on the sea and the mountains from the terrace or the living-room is just wonderful - in summer or winter, in daytime or night time, in rain or sunshine. Indoors, you will enjoy the old stone floors, the wooden ceiling beams - or the modern and fully equipped kitchen.

The Best!

  • 5 out of 5
In 10 years of renting apartments in Western Europe this is the nicest we have found. It has a wonderful, ancient feel (part of being in a bourg medieval) but is comfortable and very well-equipped. We cooked many meals and ate on the lovely terrace with incredible sea and mountain views even though it was February. Even the bed is very comfortable. The custom-designed, blue-tiled shower is dazzling. The decor is nicely done. The village is endlessly fascinating and contains many notable restaurants very close by. We ate especially well at Entre Cour et Jardin. Fleur de Sel, La Goutte d'Eau and Jimmy's were also quite good. If you can get an invitation to the village club Cercle des Amis (especially on an evening when they are having bagna cauda) don't pass it up. The description of this apartment was absolutely accurate. We are seniors who travel without a car and found this a convenient rental. We are avid walkers and found the village itself very engaging. A free mini-bus stops at the front door of this apartment to go down to the centre ville and back with groceries and to get to the many inexpensive regional buses and trains. Many places to go in the region as well including Grasse, Mandelieu, Menton and Nice.

Just Fabulous!

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in holiday apartments in France a number of times over the years but this was the best we have ever stayed in. The apartment is beautifully decorated and has a lovely cosy feel, it is spacious and bright and the air conditioning worked perfectly. We love to cook and the kitchen was very well equipped. The outside terrace area was perfect for enjoying our meals al fresco with a chilled bottle of wine. The courtesy bus down to the town was really handy as it stopped just on the road outside and went every 15 minutes. We also loved strolling up the hill to the old town in the evenings. The booking process was straightforward and easy. We loved this apartment and would highly recommend staying in La Perle.

Haut Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
We went to a wedding in Provence and wanted an apartment for the next week to use as a base to explore the area. After searching for weeks, we decided on La Perle. My husband is still raving about me finding "the perfect apartment" and it truly was just that. The rental process was smooth and Lena and Rosanna were both a pleasure to work with.
The apartment itself is exactly as you see in the photos. Updated and beautifully furnished. The views are spectacular. Do park all the way at the bottom of the hill in the large public lot. The Intermarché is just across the street and around the corner; very convenient...you simply take the #44 up the hill to the village! It's free and runs every 15 min or so, and the stop is right outside the apartment.
We're in pretty good shape, so hiking up the street to the square didn't bother us – great restaurants there, including Le Jimmy's. (You may not think you would want pizza on vacation, but the night we arrived tired and hungry, it hit the spot!) We ate at Les Baux our last night...while enjoying a jazz concert in the square...lovely. We ate at Le Perousin one night and Le Manoir another...both were really wonderful and just steps away from the apartment.
We took day trips to visit Canne, St. Paul de Vence, Vence, Eze, Biot, Menton, Nice, Ventimiglia, etc. (Spectacular views at Eze from the tropical garden - drive above Eze to the Parc Naturel and eat lunch at L'Hermitage du Col d'Eze. Visit Fondation Maeght at St. Paul de Vence and Renoir's home in Cagnes sur Mer...have desert on the terrace at Le Jarrier in Biot and watch boule in the square in Vence.)
Finally, the village is authentic and not as "touristy" as some of the other places we visited. The people were warm and friendly...including one of the neighbors we met. Medieval charm, indeed!
Thank you, Lena.

A great place for individual Provencal holidays

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment on two floors has been furnished by the Swedish owner with lots of love and sensitivity. It has absolutely everything you need, much more than in a normal apartment: cozy pillows and blankets in the living area, a fireplace, beautiful pictures and decoration, candles, books, cd's and videos, personal items etc. From here you can immerse in the world of Haut de Cagnes and feel like home for a few days.

The terrace and also the large glass front in the livingroom upstairs (for winter or bad weather ;-) offers a wide panoramic view over the sea and the countryside. So you have always feel connected with the environment around it.

From the apartment you can easily reach (by bus, bike or car) also other nice villages with markets and little shops, museums and active sites of many artists or the hotspots like Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo etc. And of course the beaches or the mountains.

Our contact was very friendly, personally and reliably. We had a great time. Thank you very much, Lena!

Me and my husband spent 2 weeks in "La Perle" and we loved it! The apartment is very clean, cozy and it really feels like home! And the view from the terrace is stunning...We´ve been there three times before and we hope that it will be many more. The apartment and the village is perfect!!!! We really recommend it!

Car: not necessary

The historic village of Haut-de-Cagnes is a charming little world of its own. It sits on a hilltop, between Nice and Antibes, and is only about a 20 minutes walk from the beach. Nice airport is 15 minutes by car. Buses take you to Nice, Antibes, Cannes, Grasse, St Paul and Vence. The train runs along the coast to Italy. The village itself has around 10 restaurants.

At the foot of the hill, in the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer, there is a wonderful covered Provencal food market, surrounded by stalls with vegetables, fruits and flowers. Little shops offer local specialities. There are a couple of supermarkets in the town centre, and many more in the immediate region.

There is a free shuttle (navette) that will take you up and down between Haut-de-Cagnes and Cagnes-sur-Mer. It ends up at the local square in Cagnes-sur-Mer, very close to various shopping possibilities. The navette runs every 15 min, and is very convenient if you have a lot of groceries to carry or if you are with children in strollers. It takes you all the way up to the ”Place du Chateau”, in Haut-de-Cagnes, and down again.

The district of Le Haut-de-Cagnes was listed as a historical site in 1948. It has held on to the calm atmosphere of a village with its history-laden stones, its shady, narrow streets decorated with flowers, and its unique views over the Mediterranean.

A number of artists, in love with the Mediterranean light, settled down in this pretty village known as 'The Montmartre of the Côte d’Azur'.

Known artists and writers are; Renoir, Soutine, Klein, Foujita, Modigliani, Derain, Georges Simenon, John Lewis, Brigitte Bardot and Greta Garbo. Most of whom had either lived here or vacation for a longer period of time.
