The hosts, Marie & Guy are such lovely warm people. They offered us cheese bites upon arrival, they had stocked the fridge with soft drinks and there was home-made jam and a large bowl of fruit on the kitchen counter waiting for us :-) They also opened a champagne bottle to toast our stay the day before we departed. The cottage is quite new and is very clean & stylishly decorated. It is much better than the online pics portray it. The general home area is peaceful and beautiful with a very clean swimming pool and very well tended gardens full of different colored flowers. It was so refreshing to be in such a serene part of the world and have all the luxuries of a 5* hotel. We loved it so much and we will visit again.

Although it's only 24km from Nice the last 5km involve 15 hairpin bends up into this medieval hill village. The village of Berre-les-alpes has enough services for the locals and guests to live a simple life without ever leaving. If you can give up the spectacular views for the day most of the cote d'azure is within an easy drive there is even a supermarket in the valley with a british food section. During our stay we truly fell in love with this apartment and the pace of life offered. The owner Jonathan was supportive and accommodating over the phone and email also the local handover was easy.
