There is underfloor heating and a crackling fireplace for winter evenings. Fully renovated in 2013, it offers a fitted kitchen, two bedrooms, a living room, a bathroom, a terrace, and a garden. The house is equipped with double-glazing, electric shutters, and it has a parking space. Between the sea and the mountain, you can enjoy delightful moments, 30 minutes away from the beaches, in a medieval village with an ideal climate in all seasons. It is ideally located for visiting the Riviera from Monaco to St-Tropez. Within the surroundings, there are many important villages such as Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Vence, Biot, Gourdon, Tourettes-sur-Loup, Grasse, and many more. There are many activities in the town and the surrounding areas: tennis, swimming pool, pedestrian hikes, mountain biking, horse riding, golf, paragliding, canyoning, speleology, ski, swimming in the natural pools of the Esteron River and La Clue de la Cerise...

What makes this villa unique

Discover the hinterland of Nice and the valleys of the region.

Esteron Valley:

This is the region of cluses, chasms, and gazebo villages still living an ancestral pace life. You can discover the exceptional view of the coastline from the summit of Mont Vial and from Cheiron.

Var Valley:

This is the place of the famous "Train des Pignes".

Gorges of Cians and Daluis:

The country of great gorges. Cashed, and deeply carved by the waters in the red shale gorges, they lead to Beuil Valberg or Peone and, to the Entraunes Valley, the Pelens needles and the Col de la Cayolle.

Tinee Valley:

The highest alpine mountain; its north side houses the main ski resorts of the department: Auron and Isola 2000.The south area, lower and steeper, has many picturesque villages.

Vesubie Valley:

A natural sanctuary between heaven, land, and sea. It houses in the high-mountain pastures, forests, lakes, waterfalls, and the Gélas culmination of the Maritime Alps. It also leads to other exceptional sites such as Massif Authion, Turini Forest, the Gordolasque Valley the Roya Valley. On the border with Italy, this region offers many high peaks, gorges, forests, vast high mountain pastures, perched villages (Saorge), painted chapels (La Brigue), baroque churches (Breil, Sospel, Tende) and rock carvings in the Vallée des Merveilles, offering an important historical richness while living water in the gorges of the Roya meets the expectations of most athletes.

The County of Nice, between sea and mountain:

The hills of the Nice are the setting for old perched villages, full of traditions, legends, and pilgrimages. These landscapes of terraced cultivation, with olive groves or the sweetness of Provencal villages, offer a subtle blend of the Alps and Provence regions.

Wonderful accommodations with a great host that was helpful, kind and responded quickly. The apartment was spacious and had all the amenities we need plus some extra. The beds were very comfortable. We recommend this rental!

Walkers' will enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable property well equipped inside and out (except for drying cloths!). We had an excellent 12 days using the villa as a base. The village is quiet at night in late summer but is an excellent base for walkers as there are many marked paths in the area and wider region. For us Bouyon was central to visiting places as far afield as Castelanne and Gorges du Verdon to Menton and Antibes on the coast.

Angenehme Unterkunft in ruhiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus liegt an der "Hauptstraße" von Bouyoun, doch von den manchmal vorbeifahrenden Autos ist nichts zu hören. Im Herbst hätten wir uns einen Sonnenplatz gewünscht, doch im Sommer dürfte man sich über die Schattenplätze mit Barbeque freuen. Wer wandern will, sollte sich auf steile Wege einstellen. Wer die Region erkunden will, sollte sich auf zeitraubende (sehr schöne) Fahrten einstellen. Es ist halt alpin. Fahrzeit bis Nizza 1 Stunde für 30 Kilometer. Das Haus ist perfekt eingerichtet, sauber und der Vermieter sehr, sehr angenehm. Wer es ruhig mag, ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben.
