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.

Despite being within easy reach of Nice and Cannes, there are also pristine mountains, lakes and gorges easily accessible. For the adventurous, wild swimming and 'tombstoning' in the River Loup are a 'must' where the river has carved a course of waterfalls, slides, jumps and deep natural pools. You can take guided walking / swimming adventure tours with a number of companies in Pont sur Loup. There is also tandem paragliding available in Gréolières at one of the two paragliding schools in the village. Cultural opportunities include perfume making, visiting hilltop villages, fêtes and open air cinemas in nearby Monaco and Villeneuve as well as winery tours, tastings and painting / photographic tours of the areas celebrated by Renoir, Chagall and Matisse. There are some wonderful walks. There is the attraction of the local food - whether this is a morning trip to the boulangerie or one of the many good local restaurants. The house itself is compact but very comfortable and well maintained with fabulous views and a delightful shaded terrace where one can happily while away a few hours in the morning having coffee and croissants. There is fast Internet access within and surrounding the cottage and also a good signal for mobile phones. The property is clearly well loved and cared. We will be returning!

Strong attention to detail with lots of care and thought from the owners in creating a great experience. Well maintained with full complement of amenities that you might need. Spectacular location assuming, like me, you're not looking for banging bars on your doorstep. If you want to book in this area, you're unlikely to do better.

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
