About Gilbert Giordano
I am a local, born in Antibes and I love my region. I have been busy building our family home for the last few years which has been a challenging project ! We live among a large selection of orange and olive trees which require constant maintenance but is a very rewarding task. I enjoy making products from our harvests. This year I have made a special orange liqueur which was delicious.. I have also started experimenting with developing my own olive oil soap - all bio and no animal fats. My next project is to restore my ancient VW beetle .. but that's another story!
Gilbert Giordano purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Gilbert Giordano chose Le Bar-sur-Loup
When we visited this property in May, the Orange trees were in blossom and the fragrance was fantastic that was the moment I knew this was going to be our new home!

We had a perfect stay
Beautiful site with stunning view of the valley
Spent 6 nights in this charming provencal site in Le-Bar-Sur-Loup. Very charming and comfortable especially after a day of visiting the sights in the region. We enjoyed our visit to this part of Provence. Gilbert and Kate welcomed us and made sure we were comfortable. Our stay was very comfortable. The location is ideally suited for visiting many of the sights in this region of Provence.
Many thanks for you kind review. I hope the rest of you tour of France went well! Brgds Kate
An idyllic little cottage.
This was an idyllic place to stay, a tranquil haven for rest and recuperation, but close to all main places of interest to visit, both by road and on foot. The cottage has everything you need for a self catering holiday. It was clean and we'll equipped. The hosts are most welcoming and helpful and not being particularly good at the French language, reassuring to know someone is close by to translate and help if necessary. Would certainly recommend and would return.
Great Location, Well Equipped and Lovely Hosts.
The charming property is a 10 ten minute walk from the pretty village of Le Bar sur Loup that provides all your basic shopping needs with excellent tourist information. The village is located high above the valley with winding streets to explore and beautiful views. It is an excellent centre for walking and outdoor activities with easy access to the coast by car or public transport (E1.50 from Chateauneuf to Nice by bus!). There is no shortage of things to do in easy reach or it is a lovely place to just sit, relax in the sun and let life slip gently by.
Our week was a mixture of walking and exploring the local villages and towns. We found the car useful but never felt the need to travel far. Our longest trip was to Nice on the bus to visit the wonderful Chagall and Matisse galleries as well as enjoying the azure sea. Vence, St Paul de Vence, Pont sur Loup and Tourrettes sur Loup were in easy reach and we never got to Grasse, we just ran out of time! We enjoyed a lovely circular walk through the village and up through the woodland. Our more challenging walk up to Gourdon was rewarded by a great sense of achievement and a lovely place to visit, eat lunch and enjoy the views before continuing through the lovely wooded landscape back to our haven. Walking up the gorge from Pont sur Loup showed us this was a place people came to swim, relax and go on organised Gorge scrambling activities - we enjoyed watching them and the wonderful scenery.
It was a week we will remember for a long time and made us realise we had only scratched the surface of the possibilities. Caraline and Gilbert were wonderful hosts making us feel really welcome and full of useful advice. Thank you

We were so glad that you enjoyed the walks and countryside which is so beautiful here. Thanks for your kind review!
Relaxing break in the sunshine
Catharine and Gilbert were the perfect hosts , the cottage was just what we needed , peaceful and relaxing , dipping pool perfect for cooling off , all in all a lovely break , thank you Catharine and Gilbert .
The perfect little bolthole in the mountains
The Orangerie charmed us from the moment we arrived. It is completely detached and sits in its own private plot with the owners house close enough to be useful for advice or any questions we might have had.
The house is nicely finished and clean, with everything you need to hand.
We spent our week roaming between Nice, Cannes and Antibes every day and the house is perfectly situated for such a trip. The local village is pretty and has a number of reasonably priced restaurants and a good pub to keep you fed and watered.
I would definitely recommend the Orangerie, in fact I already have to several of my friends.
Thanks, and see you next year!
Thanks for your feedback! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
L’Orangeraie is a renovated cottage in the hills behind Nice, near to Grasse, set in a former orange and olive grove. It is located in a village called Le Bar sur Loup, which is 15 minutes drive from Grasse. It is a 10 minutes walk to the village which has a good selection of amenities: shops, newsagents, restaurants and cafés.
There are local markets almost every day in the surrounding towns, and many local perfumeries to visit. As we are 30 minutes inland from the coast, this is the perfect setting for a quiet break away from it all. You can drive down to the beaches of Antibes, Cannes or swim in our local river, the Loup which has lots of deep (invigorating!) rock pools.
The cottage is in a very quiet location with beautiful mountains which can be explored by foot, cycle or car. From the cottage you can reach the GR4 on foot, directly from the cottage. The GR 4 is a long-distance walking route of the Grande Randonnée network in France. The route connects Royan with Grasse and connects 13 departments. The river Loup runs through the village is a favorite spot for picnicking, swimming, canyoning etc .
It is also a well-known spot for hang-gliders.
If you like star spotting, the famous Riviera beaches at Cannes or Nice are approx. 40 minutes’ drive away.
In the winter months we are only 35 minutes drive from the small family resort of Gréolières-Les-Neiges and 2 hours from the lively resorts of Auron and Isola 2000.
If you like relaxing on your holiday in the peace and quiet this would make the perfect location for your vacation break!
