About the property

Seaview Terraces, Garden, WiFi, 2 Homes Rented Together for Excellent Price

La Grande Vue (140m2) is a wonderful village house in stone rented out with its neighboring house La Petite Vue (58m2). It offers a spectacular south/south west view of the sea and Cap d’Antibes – including the Hippodrome and Baie des Anges. Situated in the heart of Haut de Cagnes, these charming properties lie on a narrow and winding street typical of the medieval village.

This provides the perfect solution for both a small group or a larger group of friends and extended family members. The main house is where all the entertaining takes place, but the small house next door gives you added sleeping accommodation and simple kitchen facilities. When entering the main house through a heavy wooden door you arrive in a home filled with comfort, light and space – ideal for holidays with lots of outside terraces, plenty of eating area possibilities and a garden with BBQ, sun loungers and open impressive sea view.

At garden level, the house boasts a large 8 seater dining table in a vaulted dining room with a utility room off it – here you can find a washing machine, dryer, microwave and extra dishwasher.

The garden offers 2 large terraces with plenty of plants and flowers, as well as a small grassy area – it is enclosed within a low stone wall allowing you to fully take in the super view in front of you. There is a large outdoor dining table covered by a pergola on one of the terraces and a coffee table with 4 chairs with electric awning on the other plus a gas and charcoal BBQ for your convenience. Stone steps lead you to the main bedroom terrace with sun loungers on the upper level.

You will find a Provençal style kitchen and guest w.c. beside the front door – the kitchen is fully equipped with a large oven and gas stove, a dishwasher, coffee machine, toaster, kettle, fridge/freezer, television and heaps of cooking utensils and crockery.

Opposite the kitchen is the most delightful sitting room with large windows, comfy sofas, a dining table and fireplace. There is a television, book cases filled with books and a climbing stairwell with pretty iron work details that takes you to the first floor.

A bathroom lies at the top of the stairs with bath with telephone shower, a wash hand basin and w.c. Beside this is a dressing room with plenty of cupboard space.

The guest bedroom has a comfortable double bed (140cm) and desk, situated next to the bright master bedroom, which lies at the end of the corridor with a king-sized bed (205 x 210cm), fireplace, wooden beams, a television, cosy armchairs and French doors opening out onto its own private terrace.

There is also a fold-out bed that sleeps 1 available on request, which can be set up in the dressing room. Gas central heating heats the house in the colder months.

When entering the adjoining house, La Petite Vue, you arrive in a small room with fireplace, welcoming table and chairs – from here a wrought iron staircase curls up through the house. There is a simple kitchen on this level with oven, 4 ring gas stove and oven, a fridge and sink.

On the first floor is a sitting room which can double up as another bedroom with a comfortable sofa bed for two (140cm)and a w.c.

On the next level up you will find the prettiest double bedroom in white. The bed is 160 x 200m2, and there is also a charming chest of drawers and plenty of wardrobe space. The 2 windows are decorated with simple, white curtains and there are shutters to keep out the noise and the heat in the summer months, there is also an air conditioning unit. Beside the bedroom is a good sized bathroom with shower, sink and mirror – the tiles are in a soft beige marble and the view from the window looks out towards the Mediterranean sea and the Cap d’Antibes.The small bedroom has air con.

La Grande Vue and La Petite Vue are beside each other but not connected.

The free shuttle bus, which runs from the town to the village every 15 minutes, has two bus stops not too far from the houses – one you walk up from the other you walk down from – you can drop your luggage off 2-3 minutes away if driving. Private parking is very rare in the medieval village but free street parking and the paying village and town car parks are usually within a 5-7 minute walk away – you also have the option to jump on the free shuttle bus close to both car parks.

The houses are a short stroll to a good selection of restaurants and the village’s main square, which is a hive of activity during the warmer months. The town below is within easy walking distance, where you can find a boulangerie, food market, boutiques, supermarket, cafes, post office, etc. The free shuttle bus from the town up to the village is also an option if you don’t feel like walking. The town is well services with buses going to most places on the Cote d’Azur, plus there is a train station. The sea is a 25-30 minute walk and a free beach bus is provided from the town in July and August.

Stunning home with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully comfortable. The layout, space and the location were perfect for our family. We enjoyed the kitchen and cooking a few French meals at home. The terraces were perfect for outdoor dining. The home is very well equipped and we even enjoyed a barbecue one of the nights. The village is so much fun and our kids loved all the restaurants and the space for the kids to bike and run and play. We can't wait to return and we hope to be able to stay in this home again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time and writing a 5 star review for la Grande Vue - we enjoy using the house ourselves and pride ourselves on making it comfortable for others to share so it was wonderful to hear your glowing comments. Haut de Cagnes is a perfect village for children - the castle and ramparts create the fairytale setting away from cars so they can play safely whilst parents relax in the restaurants with a chilled glass of rose - we look forward to seeing you the next time!

Breathtaking Rivera Views

  • 5 of 5

Fabulously beautiful home with spectacular views. Multi-level terrace provided an idyllic spot for breakfast and cocktails. Spacious living room with amazing picture window rivals the outdoor spaces. Comfortable beds and well-appointed kitchen made it feel like home. The pictures don't do it justice!

The 2 houses worked well for our group of five, however the Petit View does not connect directly to the terrace or the Grande View, something that is not clear from the posting. Despite the slight inconvenience, we loved the property and would absolutely stay there again.

The parking in Haute Cagne presents a challenge, but the atmosphere and views more than make up for it. We enjoyed wandering the stone street and exploring the Medieval town, which is basically untouched by the tourist traffic.

We hope to return, if only in our dreams.

We look forward to welcoming you back one of these days - thank you again for the 5 stars!

Amazing property, stunning view and fab location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived after a long train journey to a very warm welcome from Kerry-Leigh. The Petit Vue had lovey views from the windows and very comfortable bedrooms. The Grande Vue (main house). Where do you start you walk in through an old door with massive key to a very large lounge/diner with views over the garden and beyond to the sea. Lovely to see the view changing in the dark and watching the boats in the daylight. Large 2 bedrooms with nice patio from master. Kitchen very well equipped. Garden with 2 seating areas and a fabulous barbecue. The house you couldn't fault had the most amazing weeks stay there would recommend it. The location is brilliant and the free bus is a fab idea as the hill is very steep. The restaurants and cafes in the square close to the house are very good and reasonably priced. The castle is well worth a visit with views over the sea mountains and more. Visited Nice, Monte Carlo, Cannes and Antibes on the train. Missing it already.

Owner's Response: Very brave to have walked from the train station (usually 10-15 minutes) - up hill on a very hot day and pulling all your cases - still you all arrived smiling and in great spirits ready to enjoy your stay! So happy to hear it lived up to your expectations that you enjoyed La Grande and Petite Vue so much - both the comfort and terraces with stunning views - really the perfect place for a BBQ isn't it? Haut de Cagnes is a magical little village surprisingly found on the Cote d'Azur. Perfectly located for getting around to visit new places and easy with lots of restaurants and activities on your doorstep. Relieved to see you take the ever popular free shuttle bus on your way back, even it is all downhill! Come back and visit us again soon!

Perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The 2 houses worked perfectly for our group of 5 - with everyone having a bedroom to themselves. We spent a lot of time in the garden as the view is fantastic & we enjoyed many happy evenings there. Perfect entertainment space to invite friends over for a BBQ or a lazy brunch.

The location is fantastic - if you want to wander up to the square for lunch or dinner. The main town is a 5 minute stroll downhill - slightly longer to walk back up if the Navette is on strike ;-)

Kerry-Leigh was a pleasure to deal with and we felt extremely welcome. If we ever return to Haut de Cagnes we would love to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you , thank you - we enjoyed having you stay and are delighted you had the opportunity to make use of the garden and terraces on the warm evenings or sunny lunches. Everything is really close at hand so life tends to be very easy and relaxed here as you say - you will be happy to here that the navette is back up and running again! Until the next time...

Perfect for Entertaining!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this old house! It was easy to imagine inhabitants and visitors over the last several hundred years crossing the threshold...For Americans, having that large old front door key made us feel like we were stepping back to the Middle Ages, but the accommodations in Grande Vue are 21st century.

Words can't describe the beautiful view from the terrace. My favorite time of day was early morning, sitting on the upper terrace with my coffee and fresh pastries from the village patisserie!

The house was clean and well-maintained. We loved the master bedroom with its own terrace. The kids did figure out the wi-fi, which needed to be booted up every time they needed it. Kerry Leigh is awesome and was a wealth of information and help.

Grande Vue accommodated our immediate family plus our sister's family stayed in Petite Vue so that we could gather each afternoon for wine and cheese on our terrace. The extended family of around 15 gathered at night up on the castle's plaza for dinner at several restaurants that ring the plaza and at our house one night for a wonderful French dinner cooked in the fully stocked kitchen and on the terrace's grill. Great place for walking, especially with children since there is not much traffic in Haute. We even walked down to the beach a couple of days with our kids. The plaza has a great place for kids to gather, with a playground and lots of running room. Just as we imagined a vacation on the French Riviera would be. Perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your glowing review of La Grande Vue, which is indeed a perfect mix of old charm with contemporary comforts and ideal for entertaining friends and family. Delighted to hear that you made the best of the terrace sunrises and of course the French viennoiseries, which are truly delicious - good to walk them off on the pretty, steep cobbled streets afterwards! You will be delighted to hear that the wifi box died a sudden death just shortly after you left and has been replaced with a spanking new one which is very efficient. We hope that you and you family come back to visit us again soon - those morning sea views will await you!

Charming French house

  • 4 of 5

Really charming house in lovely old villagge. No parking near the house, but a shuttle bus takes you every 15 minutes for free from a huge public parking in Cagnese sur Mer (but walking took only 10 minutes and can easily be done by fit people). A very big master bedroom in the Grande Vue with king size bed and a wonderful view, but the sofa bed was far two small for two people (one of us ended up sleeping on the sofa in the living room). The petite view is a very small house with a tiny old kitchen and no garden, but has a nice bedroom and modern bathroom. Both houses are full of steps which might be a problem for small children and old people. Upon our arrival wifi wasn't working but the owner's representative was extremely helpful and had it fixed in 24 hours, she's lives nearby and is really of great help. The property was very clean (except for the barbacue) and wellmaintained, a lot of nice restaurants near the castle.

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear you enjoyed La Grande Vue and the charming medieval village of Haut de Cagnes - yes, the main bedroom is wonderfully impressive with it's views and terraces and it is true that the sofa bed in the large house is better suited to two small children or one adult (for those in doubt - please see the sizes included in the advert). La Grande Vue with it's little sister house next door is ideal for friends and family - allowing you to entertain in the big house yet enjoy privacy by having simple extra lodgings next door. Thank you for your understanding with the Wifi for the first night - it was one of those rare and unfortunate things of the box's life span ending that day but happily you were back up and running on your second day with a brand new box installed! It was great having you all visit - and I hope you come back to see us again in the future - you are always welcome! Dank je wel - grazie!

Cagnes sur Mer
Car: not necessary

The charming, fortified medieval village of Haut de Cagnes is the oldest district of Cagnes sur Mer – ideally situated between Nice and Antibes and only a short car journey from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport and within walking distance to the sea.

Here you are close to a boulangerie for warm fresh bread each morning and an excellent selection of restaurants for great dining. Local food markets, shops and outdoor cafes are all nearby. The area provides a perfect hopping on point to multiple destinations and attractions with its excellent rail and bus services.

Crowned with the original Grimaldi Castle, this enchanting medieval village with charming cobbled streets and remarkable ancient buildings transports you back in time to the 13th Century. The serenity and simplicity found in these pretty French villages allows you to enjoy the sun, sea and breath-taking views in a very relaxed atmosphere. Known as the ‘Montmartre of the French Rivieria’, Haut de Cagnes was the haunt of Renoir, Modigliani, Soutine, Yves Klein, Bardot and Cocteau. It’s easy to see why many famous artists lived or found their inspiration here, falling in love with the soft Mediterranean light and honest authenticity.

But this charming, perched village has so much more to offer, with its tiers of tiny streets, climbing soft stone walls and colourful houses bursting with history. On the main street and Place du Château, there are plenty of bustling restaurants and cafés plus numerous historical cultural events and colourful festivals are held during the year.

A short stroll down the hill will bring you to the town of Cagnes, which provides all amenities such as a boulangerie, a patisserie, a supermarket, post office, the main bus square and a wonderful covered food market. Close to the town centre lies the Renoir Museum, the Hippodrome for horse racing and Cros de Cagnes – the seaside resort of Cagnes sur Mer with its private and public beaches.

There is so much you can do without a car, such as; shopping in Cannes, people watching in St Tropez, perfume sampling in Grasse, gambling in Monaco, lunching in Italy and buying art in St Paul – all easily accessible and inexpensive with most bus journeys costing only €1,50. Or if you prefer to cycle along the coastline to Nice or Antibes by bike, bike hire is rarely far away.

No 44 is a free navette, which runs up to the medieval village passing outside La Cagnotte every 15 minutes from the town centre of Cagnes at Square Bourdet (the central bus station). It is ideal if you have luggage or shopping bags or when the weather is hot – it travels right up to the Château with a few strategic stops on the way.
