We are located on the French Riviera in the Alpes Maritimes, 15 minutes from Nice beach and half an hour from Cannes or Monaco. City Tales is located in the hinterland of Nice in the Paillon valley. This city is very dynamic, festivals are organized and various events throughout the year. It has many shops. However, this remains a city full sized charm with several small pedestrian squares and cobbled streets.

Home

Originally the house was surrounded by 7 hectares of vines that were operating at the site. This time you will find many vines around the house or on 2 acres of terraces. An old wine press, old barrels and other vintage materials have also been preserved.

The oldest part of the house dates from the nineteenth century. The renovation was carried out in compliance with the typical architecture of the region with the Genoese, the tiles, and particularly moldings.

Two guest rooms have been furnished. They each have a separate entrance. The guest room of the ground floor overlooking the garden. The second guest room is on the top floor, access is from the side of the pool.

Facing the living room, the garden is landscaped for relaxation of small and large with benches, a lounge, a wrought-iron bed .... All under the shadow of two old chestnut trees. Overlooking the house, the pool offers stunning views of the valley. Here you can relax and enjoy the sauna.

Between swims, do not hesitate to push a few meters higher beast for a perpetual show. Guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, Muscovy ducks and greet you with pleasure. The goats park itself is home to 6 adorable semi-dwarf goats and 2 kids.

Finally, if you follow the path along the fence goats you can walk on the ground. Oaks and pines offer you a dark corner for a nap or a picnic.

Warm and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

Put quite simply Blandine and Gregory (and their lovely family) are the best hosts you could wish for if you looking for the home away from home experience. Our accommodation was spotless and very well equipped; the rooms are all tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were amazing with so much attention detail and nothing left to chance. The views of the surrounding countryside from the bedroom veranda were beautiful and we toured extensively and took in many of the nearby picturesque perched villages.

Séjour parfait !!

  • 5 of 5

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de nos 5 jours passés en famille à La Farnésine : tout était parfait !!

La chambre familiale, dont l’entrée est indépendante, est très spacieuse, confortable, propre et au calme, et Contes est un bon point de départ pour visiter cette belle région (Nice, St Jean Cap Ferrat, Eze, les villages perchés de Peillon, Ste Agnès, etc…)

La table d’hôte est excellente, et l’ambiance créée par les propriétaires et leurs adorables enfants nous font sentir immédiatement comme chez des amis.

Bref, tout est fait pour rendre le séjour des hôtes le plus agréable possible (conseils de visites, petits déjeuners copieux et variés, avec produits faits maison, piscine agréable pour les petits et grands, possibilité de nourrir les animaux, etc…) : nous avons rarement vu un accueil aussi gentil !

C’est sûr, nous reviendrons !!

Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Ein herrlicher Ort zum Entspannen mit wunderbaren, zuvorkommenden Vermietern! Wir haben 14 Tage bei Blandine und Gregory verbracht und jeden Tag genossen! Bei den hohen Temperaturen die wir hatten (34 - 38 Grad) war der Pool das absolute Highlight am Tag! Das Frühstück, mit selbstgemachter Marmelade, wurde von Blandine direkt auf der Terrasse serviert. Die Zimmer sind sehr geschmackvoll und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet und alles ist sehr sauber. Wir haben uns für die Berge der Grande Alpes interessiert und sind auch von der Natur und Landschaft hinter den Touristenorten Nizza, Monaco etc. extrem begeistert!! Ein rundum toller Urlaub in der Villa Farnesine! Wir kommem bestimmt wieder! Danke

Annette + Reiner

Séjour agréable

  • 4 of 5

Très bon séjour passé en famille (2 adultes et 2 enfants). Nous sommes restés 4 jours qui se sont très bien déroulés. Chambres agréables pour les parents et enfants. Bonne literie et TV dans la chambre adulte. Espace détente entre les 2 chambres avec canapé et petit frigo. Mis à disposition par les propriétaires: boissons, bonbons, thé, gel douche, crème corps, etc. Superbe vue sur le village de la terrasse de la chambre. Entrée indépendante à l'étage supérieur. Petit déjeuner et dîner varié et copieux. Produits faits maisons: pan cakes, gaufres, muffins, confitures ( oranges amères et rhum un délice! ) tartes,etc. Dîners passés avec les propriétaires et leurs enfants. Très agréables pour les enfants qui peuvent s'amuser. Accueil chaleureux et de bons conseils. Se sont démenés pour nous faire plaisir et répondre à nos attentes. Présence d'animaux de bonne compagnie: chat, chien et chèvres. Région magnifique: montagnes,mer, villages classés, routes pittoresques à proximité, et avec le soleil! Idéal pour des vacances en famille!
