Make a villa in Grasse your home away from home

Grasse villas and apartments are located on the cusp of the Alps' southern tail, where the majestic mountains step down into the Mediterranean sea. But the cathedral city of Grasse wasn't always a dreamy holiday spot – it began life as a leather tanning town. The appalling smells once associated with the process led to the development of perfumes, and today, Grasse is regarded as the perfume capital of the world. The pleasant aromas from the industry's flower fields augment the views and attractive architecture, to make Grasse holiday homes one of the sweetest options around.

Most holiday rentals in Grasse have access to a pool and BBQ area, come with fully equipped kitchens (including washer/dryers and dishwashers) and serve as a great base for walking in the surrounding hills. If visitors don't fancy stretching their legs, no problem – most properties offer parking and gardens, so holidaymakers can drive out for the day, or simply kick back and relax in the sun.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: The location of Grasse apartments on the beginning slopes of the Alps means there are plenty of hiking and biking opportunities. Grasse also has two scenic golf courses, and skiing is always convenient in the winter. For the more adventurous hiker and climber, the Alps proper are literally minutes away.

Beaches: The famous beaches of Cannes and Antibes, as well as a further range of excellent holiday homes can be found within nine miles of easy driving. Guests at Grasse rentals can choose between the exclusive but expensive shores of Cannes, or the more reasonably priced, but prettier, Antibes. Indeed, the latter is considered to have the best beaches on the Cote d'Azur – a no-brainer!

Nightlife: Grasse tends to be a quiet, reflective town with hidden squares and winding roads, though the number of restaurants and bars may belay that idea. For a quiet drink or dinner with a tremendous view, Grasse is hard to beat. For more energetic entertainment, however, Cannes may be a preferable option.

Shopping: For dried flowers and scented products, Grasse is the go-to place, probably in the entire world. Of course, Cannes is nearby with its exclusive boutiques and designer chic, which is definitely worth a trip, even if just for the people watching and window shopping.

Culture: Grasse was a favourite haunt of Queen Victoria, who would stay with the Rothchilds while in town. It doesn't get much more cultured than that. To see what caught her fancy, one can't go far wrong by visiting the splendid cathedral, and various other historical and cultural sites, including the 30-metre-high Saracen Tower, and the International Museum of Perfume.

Weather in Grasse

While it gets year-round sunshine, Grasse's location set back from the coast means it doesn't get the same moderation from the sea as Cannes and Nice, so while seasonal temperatures track similarly, they can get more extreme. The summers, for example, can top out a little hotter than the coast's 32°C, and the winters a little colder than 5°C with more common frosts. Rainfall is about the same, however, concentrated in the months of October and November.

Travel to Grasse

The international Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is 25 miles from Grasse, and the best option for flying in. Buses do run to and from the airport, but having a hire car is a huge boon in this part of the country, so guests can get to the Alps and the coast with similar ease. Driving to the south of France is quite doable as is taking the train, with the French TGV high-speed trains making the journey in only six hours from Paris.

Stunning views and a real haven

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely property. The views from the terrace are breathtaking and mesmerising. The house is lovely everything you could need. The pool is fantastic too. Penny the owner is really lovely and she really helped us with an issue we had with an earlier property and actually saved the day for us, by letting us book at short notice - thank you. Penny is very knowledgeable on the area too and key places to visit. She's a very special lady. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to return. Thank you Penny for an amazing stay.

Perfect villa for all your holiday needs!

5 of 5
We have just returned from Villa Dusett (end of May) and I must say we had another pleasant stay (we were there 2 years ago). It was two families travelling (4 adults and 4 children). We each had a house that had 2 bedrooms, kitchen/living room and dining areas, bathrooms. However, we only used bedrooms and bathrooms, as rest of the time we spent outside. Once you are inside through the gate, you are surrounded by beautiful greenery and it feels very private as well. You are not overlooked by anybody. The way two houses are positioned, gives plenty of privacy from each other as well. Villa is very well looked after inside and outside. The main benefit for us is the area around the swimming pool, which is heated, so it is perfect for the children. There is plenty of space around the swimming pool for the sun loungers (there are at least 6 big and 4 smaller ones). There are 3 different areas where you can sit around the pool. The kitchen and dining area by the pool is definitely a plus and very comfortable. There is everything you need starting from refrigerating your food, cooking, grilling and even a dishwasher. There is a big table that seats at least 10 people, so it was nice to have meals all together. There are all the dishes, cutlery, crockery, etc. There is a shower and a separate toilet, so you do not need to run back to the house. The location of the villa is also great as you are not too far from the beaches (20min). The local town with perfect bakery and fruit/veg shop is just 5min drive. Leo (caretaker) is very accommodating and can assist you with anything you would ask. We will definitely be back again to this villa and I would recommend it to anybody who wants to have a great time.
