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.

Places to holiday in Bar-sur-Loup, France

A chateau in Bar-sur-Loup is perfect for visiting Grasse and Vence, the two nearest towns, as well as any of the other famous towns and seaside resorts of the Cote d’Azur.

Grasse, the world’s perfume capital, is a stunning town, where the mixed cultures of the Mediterranean meet in a glorious combination. It is a great place to take a few hours on the beach or exploring the many treasures of Grasse’s old quarter. There are three great golf courses surrounding Grasse, as well as a number of brilliant hiking trails.

Vence, the city of art, is a small medieval town which has hardly changed over the years. The marked trail around the main sights of Vence is easily taken, and provides a fascinating insight into the history and culture of the region. The weekly market is also a great place to pick up supplies at bargain prices for your self catering Bar-sur-Loup accommodation.

Perfection personified; 10-star perfect for both children and adults - in all ways

5 of 5
How can one describe the bestest of holidays? 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.

Stunning property in idyllic location

5 of 5
We have just returned Le Bar-sur-Loup staying in Villa Les Lucioles and we cannot speak highly enough of the week that we had. Comfortably under an hour's drive from Nice Airport it is a conveniently located large, comfortable, incredibly private and quiet property with all amenities covered. Large bedrooms, ample bathroom and relaxation areas, large kitchen, children's needs well catered for and the pool is just wonderful. Lise and Jon looked after our needs brilliantly and we cannot wait to return in the future. Two small tips, do not miss the market in Valbonne on a Friday or the views to be had from the perched village of Gourdon, both under 20mins away by car. Do not hesitate in booking this terrific property you will not be disappointed!
