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!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A little gem.....if you want to see the French Riviera but love the rural lifestyle then this is the place to stay. The village of Le Bar Sur Loup is lovely with 4 or 5 restaurants to choose from each eve & a couple of boulangeries. It is possibly to get to Nice & Monaco by bus for really cheap prices 1.5 Euro fixed fares for each journey, & there are also loads of gorgeous hilltop villages in the Loup itself....Vence, St Paul Du Vence, & Gourdon. The gite itself is great & although small, has everything you need. I would recommend taking a pair of cheap new flip flops or slippers to wear indoors as it’s quite difficult to stop tracking in dirt from outside as not fully paved everywhere, & you feel the need to constantly brush your feet off indoors otherwise!😂....but it wasn’t a big problem.

Catherine & Gilbert are really the perfect “hosts” as they are really lovely friendly people & help with anything at all that you need, but keep completely out of your way otherwise so you really do feel that you are renting your very own space. The plunge pool was a godsend & was gratefully used to cool off on several occasions.

Good accommodation but, sadly, the bedroom was damp

  • 3 of 5

The accommodation is a short drive up the mountain above the charming village of Le Bar-sur-Loup. Our hosts were very welcoming and there was a lot to like about both accommodation and location. The main downside and the reason for only giving 3 stars is that the bedroom was very damp, with moisture appearing on the recently tiled floor, making everything feel damp. Thankfully, the living room didn't suffer as much. All in all, if you like to be outdoors, there's a lot to do in the area. Cannes, Nice and Monaco are within relatively easy reach, although traffic can be slow, and we enjoyed days out at each. Gourdon is also well worth the climb if you're feeling energetic.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage looks out onto an olive grove where we enjoyed many evenings sat on the terrace drinking a glass of wine. The cottage itself is nicely decorated with a well equipped kitchen and relaxing living area with a great collection of books to read. Catherine and Gilbert made us very welcome providing help and information on the local area ready to answer any questions. The village of Bar Sur Loup is charming and has wonderful views out towards Pont de Loup. We enjoyed dinner on our first evening in the village at Ecole de Fils – a fantastic restaurant well worth a visit and a 10 minute walk from the cottage. We were able to hire bikes and enjoyed seeing much of the local area. Try to visit Tourette Sur Loup approx. 14 km away and also Calle de Loup both beautiful villages. The village of Pont de Loup takes about 1 hour to walk from the cottage and there is a great little bar/brasserie by the bridge called ‘le Source’ where we felt very welcome and were treated to a couple of excellent lunches. Grasse is a short drive away and there are lots of villages to enjoy, cycle routes and local walks detailed in an information pack at the cottage. From Bar Sur Loup we drove our hire car back to Niece Airport then enjoyed a night in Niece only 40 minutes approx. from Bar Sur Loup. A fantastic holiday and would very much recommend staying at this lovely cottage in a stunning location which also affords great privacy.

Beautiful site with stunning view of the valley

  • 5 of 5

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.

An idyllic little cottage.

  • 4 of 5

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.

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!
