Make a holiday rental villa or chateau in Bar-sur-Loup, France your home away from home

Bar-sur-Loup is a beautiful old village perched high on a rock outcrop overlooking the River Loup on the Cote d’Azur - Riviera. The old village layout, a circle centred on the 13th century Bar-sur-Loup Chateau, is still maintained, with large sections of the original defensive walls still clearly visible. As cars are forbidden in Bar-sur-Loup, there is very little that disturbs the peace, and when combined with the beautiful rocky scenery of the Loup Valley, it is very easy to relax in a Bar-sur-Loup apartment or holiday home.

Things to do on holiday in Bar-sur-Loup, France

The hiking along the Sarree Plateau and both the Loup Valleys and the Gourdon Valley next door is excellent, offering stunning views over the countryside and across to the famous Cote d’Azur. There are a great many nationally recognised hiking trails throughout the surrounding countryside, all starting from the Ave de Yorktown, which can be easily found from a holiday rental in Bar-sur-Loup. Although the famous Bar-sur-Loup Chateau is privately owned and not accessible to visitors, it provides a beautiful centrepiece to the village, and means you can gain you bearings and work out which of the properties in Bur-sur-Loup you are staying in from a great distance!

The hills surrounding Bur-sur-Loup are a great place for paragliding and hangliding, and throughout the summer, canopies can be seen floating majestically above the roof of the Bar-sur-Loup chateau.

The Loup River canyon is a favourite local trout fishing area, and you can happily take a rod yourself, but a permit is required from the Bar-sur-Loup Office de Tourisme.

Riveloup - house, pool, gardens, games, AND the river within 20 metres or so with its "rapids", tree swing, deep enough water to jump in, and shallow enough to check out the fishes, tadpoles, baby frogs - was 'just the business'. House very comfortable, roomy. We were 16... 8 adults, 8 kids! Kitchen had all that could be required....with all necessary aids, ie dishwasher, washing machine etc. Not to mention the 3 fridges, to cool the quantitities of beer and wine required! Riveloup is surrounded by gorges, mountains, adventures - so it can be both a pool and river holiday (for those wanting to chill out) and also outdoor pursuits, challenging and otherwise for the adrenaline junkles! LIesel is a thoughtful and delightful woman who would (and did) help in any way. We wanted 2 evenings catered for, and Liesel pointed us in the direction of Bridie|Simply food; excellent, very delicious, both meat and vegetarian. One thing, and nothing to do with Liesel or Riveloup, if you're hiring a car from Nice Airport, arrange to have it waiting for you at Arrivals - do NOT go to the car rental terminal. It was teeming, resulting in a 2 hours queue... I am SO SO glad that I found Riveloup and Liesel online; it was a wonderful family catch-up/holiday..... I recommend Liesel and Riveloup UNRESERVEDLY - as I said up top there - The Bestest of Holidays.
