About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4/5

Le Petit Prince is a charming little Provençal villa with a separate guest house, only a few steps across a beautifully stoned terrace and garden. It is situated in the historic village of Haut-de-Cagnes, only five minutes from all the restaurants and the 13th century castle at the top of the hill. The lush garden, designed by a landscape architect, bosts a mandarine tree and a plum tree - not to mention all the flowering and exotic plants. The main house has a charming living-room, with a cosy sofa in front of the open fireplace. There is a television and a DVD-player. The fresh and relaxing bedroom has a double bed. The bathroom has been recently refurbished, and so has the well equipped kitchen. The guest house sleeps two, in 2 single beds which we can make as a double bed if needed,.and has an en-suite shower/WC and bassin. There is also a little room where we can add a comfortable air mattress for one more person. Both houses are air conditioned. Best of all - the garden is perfect for lazy dinners or a drink in the sun.

Golf and skiing: There are over 15 golf courses within half an hour´s drive. Skiing is about 1,5 hours away.

Le Petit Prince

  • 5 of 5

It is with reluctance that I write this review of Le Petit Prince because I would prefer to keep it a secret. The house and cottage make a perfect combination to accommodate guests and the exotic garden is a beautiful secluded spot to relax and eat whilst looking over towards Renoir's estate at Les Collettes. The medieval village of Haut-de-Cagnes just above the house is surely the most beautiful village on the Côte d'Azur - and only a few minutes from the airport. Antibes, St. Paul de Vence and Nice are easily reached by car or bus. The house is well equipped with all the necessary gear including international TV and Wifi.

If I could book it for the year I would without hesitation - thank you family Gilsbro for sharing your beautiful home with us, and thank you Rosanna for your warm welcome and courteous management.

I'll be back.

Central and perfect for small children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for six days and it was perfect for us and our little toddler, 15 months old. We liked the location just between the castle and the village. We also used the separate guest house when friends of us came visiting for three days. The house itself is very charming and the kitchen and living room has very easy access to the nice outdoor space. We would highly recommend the property to families with children or two couples traveling together.

Good holidays.

  • 4 of 5

I've been in August with my partner and my 2 years old child, and we've liked a lot the place, it's very quiet and it's near the village and not too far from the beach, we used to go on foot with my baby, more or less 30 minutes. Just two bad point, wet and a lot of mosquitos.

Good holidays.

  • 5 of 5

Le Petit prince is a good place to stay. It is good located, but not so near the beach that I thought. But we loved better the location near the centre of the town, Renoir museum and the castle and the good restaurants in the village.The house is also good located for the bus. We also loved the house and the garden. This is a place we would like to go back to...

Owner's Response: Le Petit Prince is located at the foot of the hill where the village of Haut de Cagnes is, and a couple of minutes walk from the town centre of Cagnes sur Mer. In the medieval village at the top, there are more than 10 restaurants. Cagnes sur Mer is the place for grocery shopping - there is a wonderful covered market, bakeries, shops and supermarkets. The beach is about a 20 min walk from the house, and the bus station is only a couple of minutes away.

The medieval village of Haut de Cagnes is only 15 min from Nice airport, and no more than 20-30 min from Cannes. It is situated just off the coast, between Nice and Antibes. The beach is about a 20 min walk - or a 5 min drive. In the immediate neighbourhood are places like Nice, St Paul de Vence, Vence, Cannes and Grasse. The mountain villages of Tourrette-sur-Loup and Gourdon are within easy reach. The area offers not only wonderful museums, but also a rich variety of culinary specialities, vineyards etc. Shopping is at its best in Cannes, Monaco and Nice. Just across the border, on the Italian side, the Friday market in Ventimiglia presents Italian leather ware, cashmere clothing, and much more.
