There is not one room in the property which is even or square. Every space is featured with curves and bending light. Coloured glass in the walls lights rooms according to mood, time of day and orientation. The Villa faces south but bends around with the track of the sun so that breakfast has the morning sun and the day ends with the sunlight streaming through coloured glass into the lounge, above the roaring fire. The Villa is all about interesting features and surprise. Nothing is expected. The main door as you approach is completely covered in copper and slotted in coloured glass and as you open this extraordinary feature, the Villa simply becomes one surprise after another. Always expect the unexpected! With the stunning sea & country views, this is a beautiful blend of home and architecture that fits comfortably into the middle of the private estate and mountains.

Car: recommended

The property is just 1.3 km (1 mile) and about 10 minutes walk to the center of Valbonne. The beaches of Cannes, Nice, Antibes and Juan les Pins are just 20 minutes drive and there are three small ski resorts within 1-1.5 h drive too.

The old village of Valbonne is restricted to mainly pedestrian due to the narrow cobbled streets and surroundings. It has retained much of its 16th-century character, though mixed with an active town atmosphere. In contrast to the twisty little streets in the hundreds of other medieval villages of Beyond, Valbonne village is laid out in neat, symmetrical rectangles planned by the Abbot of Lerins, following the layout of Roman cities.

In the center of the village is the very lovely, 16th-century Place des Arcades. This central square is surrounded on all four sides by picturesque arcades, café terraces and little shops. The arcade at the 'Hotel Les Armoiries' is engraved with a stone as '1628'. Unfortunatel, and unnecessarily, the square is also a parking lot for about 10 cars; not enough to be useful, but enough to spoil the view and the character of the square.

Dispersed through the little streets are many boutique shops and a few, well-respected restaurants here and there.

At the bottom of the village, across the street below the rectangle of the center, is the 12th-century Eglise Saint Blaise, the attached Chalaisien Abbey (or 'Ancien Couvent Chalaisien'), the Moulin des Moines (now a restaurant), and a very ancient-looking carved-stone monument. Beside the village to the west, across the street, is a new, little shopping complex and a parking lot. It has a restaurant, newspaper shop, very smart Italian and provence deli choices with local produce shops. The post office is at the far end of the parking lot.

All in all Valbonne the is perfect central location from where you can choose to explore the famous beaches of the Riviera with quick access to all the major resorts such as Cannes, Antibes, Juan les Lins and even St Tropez. It is also perfect for heading off into the Alpine hill villages and exploring the mountains. Sitting in the foothills of the Alps and overlooking the Mediterranean, this is the perfect get away, close enough to the action but not on top of it.
