Make a Holiday Rentals Chalet in Greolieres, France, Your Home Away From Home

Greolieres is a tiny mountain village, perched up high in the Maritime Alps, north of the Riviera and Provence. It is pressed against the southern flank of the Cheiron mountain, which rears up some 1400m above Greolieres. This mountainous part of southern France is known, in the main, for its winter sports, and some 12 miles north of the village is the ski resort Greolieres-les-Nieges. The village of Greolieres itself offers many excellent self catering holiday apartments and chalets, but it is in the ski resort to the north that many more fine chalets and apartments for rent can be found, close to where the skiing action is.

Things to Do on Holiday in Greolieres, France

In the summer months, hiking in the lower foothills of the Montagne du Cheiron is a challenging, but exciting means of getting the best out of the spectacular scenery of the Maritime Alps. The resort also offers people on their holidays in Greolieres activities from horse-riding to paragliding. For the even hardier, and even fitter, hill cycling is taken up by those keen to push their boundaries. But for most visitors, the winter-time is the time to come to Greolieres, when the snow is thick and the pistes ready for the ranges of winter sports undertaken at Greolieres-les-Nieges. The resort is well equipped for cross-country skiing, as well as having its own ski school.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Greolieres, France

In addition to all of the exciting physical pursuits available to the visitor in the mountains, there is much to see when you backtrack down to the lower hills of Provence. The main town immediately to the south is Grasse, known as the perfume capital of the world. The town has long been associated with the perfume industry, since the essential scents and smells of the mountain meadow flowers were first extracted and bottled. The town has a lovely maze-like feel to it, and amongst the brightly coloured, steep and narrow streets you will find many perfumery boutiques selling exquisite scents.

Weather in Greolieres, France

The weather in any mountainous region, such as for your holidays in Greolieres, is inevitably very variable, and changeable even within one day - so accurate local weather forecasts are essential to most activities in the area, especially in the winter. The temperature also varies significantly according to altitude; in general terms this Alpine region is characterised by very cold winters at the altitude that Greolieres and Greolieres les Nieges sit at. Summer is warmer, but often wet, and being prepared for any weather conditions is essential even during the warmer months.

Travel to Greolieres, France

Travellers looking to spend their holidays in Greolieres will first need to fly to the nearest international airport, at Nice (NCE). easyJet, Jet2.com and BMI Baby all fly out to Nice, with affordable, regular direct flights, from all London airports (LGW, LHR, LTN), as well as East Midlands (EMA), Bristol (BRS), Manchester (MAN) and Edinburgh (EDI), to name but a few.

Several emails were exchanged, and they provided photos of the route, as this little gem is not on the beaten track. Bottles of beer and other cold drinks in the fridge to welcome us. Thanks to the photos, we found the property with little difficulty. Do not be put off on arrival by the plain, windowless wall adjacent to the entrance door. The studio has a window at the rear with panoramic view across a deep valley to a few neighbouring houses on the other side. We spent much of our time on the deck chairs and patio set on the decking outside the entrance door. A sunny but shaded spot. This abuts a narrow gravel driveway past the property to a scattering of other owner occupied residences, but is very quiet, with vehicles passing only occasionally as resident families go about their business. The inside of the studio and all of its equipment and furnishings are only a few months old, and everything from kitchen to shower is pristine. Everything was provided, from hairdrier to iron to poker dice, packs of cards and everything in between. TV is French only, so I suggest you download movies or TV series to phone or tablet and connect via a suitable HDMI cable for some evening viewing. The studio is a lesson in how to maximise the available space and fit it out with everything a travelling couple or small family needs for a pleasant break. If you are looking for low cost and compact, but beautifully appointed self catering accommodation, relatively close to the expensive French Riviera resorts of Monte Carlo, Monaco, Nice and Cannes, this is the place for you. We have very few words of French, and the owners just a little more English. This was disappointing only because it would have been nice to talk about our backgrounds and to engage more with them and their two delightful young sons. My only reservation would be that the studio is 10 miles into the hills. Roads are narrow and windy, but just take it steady and enjoy the view. I came here on a "road trip", so it was perfect for me. You will need your own transport to make the most of this hideaway location

The rest of the family occupied the main house and the 5 teens throughly enjoyed their own rooms and tv (Olympics) . The pool and river were great and lots of swimming fun and exploring was had , plenty of towels were to hand . The more energetic did some walking through the nearby gorge which was very lovely with stunning views . The house is very well equipped and clean, lots of fridge space which is important when feeding 15 !! We all enjoyed eating together at the large outdoor tables and adding to the atmosphere with candles which were to hand . The coast is a short drive away where the charming town and exclusive port of Antibes provided an interesting visit . Liesel is an excellent host who did her best to provide us with information as we needed it . An amazing area to visit ,off the well trodden path but not isolated ,we had a great holiday !

We did enjoy our stay and I am happy to recommend this place for future renters for their family holidays. The owner has always been in touch via email and I can't fault that, I am happy to have made good memories in this pretty french cottage.
