Why Elizabeth & Francois Page chose Les Issambres
Before Villa Petit Paradis, we had a Mazet but we quickly outgrew it as our friends and families wanted to share the exceptional experience of learning about a culture from a personal perspective.
What makes this villa unique
Easy proximity to cultural centers all within reach in a day. Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Marseilles, Aix en Provence, Cotignac, Roquebrun, Grasse, Gap, Gorge du Verdun, and St. Tropez. These villages are the canvasses on which timeless stories and legends have emerged and as you walk through the forests or village streets, history leaps into 3D and we can never close our hearts or minds once they've been opened by aromas, tastes, colors, sounds, and smiles of provence.
