Why Simon H chose Haut de Cagnes

It was love at first site ,but not what we had come out looking for at all.Great and very rare to have a garden in the village ,its lovely to sit and survey the surrounding countryside and the lights of Nice at night.It also saves a lot of money to be able to eat outside with your own food and wine and not feel you have to go out.So glad we bought in this location as absolutely everything is to hand and no car is needed as the public transport is so good and cheap and so close to the airport.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a great position easy access to everything but very little traffic noise,unlike our first stay in the village.Its a quick stroll to the shops or bars.Lovely view from the garden which we couldn't do without.Furnished and decorated to live in not just your typical holiday let

All You Could Wish For And More

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Haut de Cagnes and we were attracted to Maison Azure by the description, photographs and the previous guest reviews. I think we all at some time have opened the door of our holiday home to find it does not live up to our expectations. However, this time it certainly did, Simon and Maura have put together their own little bit of paradise and we had been invited to share it. The house has everything that you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay, the terrace garden for us was the jewel in the crown. It is private, sunshine in the morning and early afternoon and some nice shade in the evening when you are enjoying your meal and your favourite bottle of wine. The free shuttle bus takes you down to the town, shop in the open and closed markets, try the seafood, it is first class. Bus travel is so easy and inexpensive and you can visit so many interesting places. We think Maison Azure ticks all the boxes and we can strongly recommend a visit there, you will not be disappointed. A big thank you to Simon and Maura for all their help,

Mike and Daphne 23rd June 2018.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you both ,its been a pleasure having you stay.Its always good to get a nice photo of the garden and glad you enjoyed and used it as much as we do.We do find most guests spend a lot more time at the house than they expect because its so easy to stock up with great food and wine and just take in the view.

A perfect place to stay in the cote dazurs hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Maison Azur is the classic medieval house - it is spacious and has views across the valley to Renoir’s house. There is also a wonderful private terrace which is hard to find in this beautiful hilltop village. Great amenities and very cordial hosts - although we didn’t meet. We had a really lovely time - thank you Simon and Maura

A very nice house in lovely Haut-des-Cagnes

  • 5 of 5

It is a very nice 3-stories house at the south-east slope of Haut-des-Cagnes with a view over Cagnes-sur-Mer and the sea from the little lush garden. The garden is perfect for the evening meal together with a glass of rosé or sparkling. The house itself is very clean, cozy and comfortable in a charming oriental style. The kitchen is well equipped and a perfect place to treat the fantastic french food bought either at the food hall/market or in the Intermarche supermarket, both in walking distance with the bakery on the way. There are two toilets, the one on the top floor with a shower and the one on the bottom floor with washing machine and dryer. Very convenient! The only negative is that it is a bit difficult to find parking close by, but the car rental (Europcar) is also in walking distance and there is a free bus downtown and very cheap buses to surrounding cities and villages. The public beaches are also close and nice with showers and toilets. We had a terrific two weeks stay and can really recommend Maison Azur!

The perfect spot for relaxation and sightseeing.

  • 5 of 5

The house is an absolute delight to stay in. It was spotlessly clean and felt just like a proper home. I had the choice of 2 bedrooms and chose the 1st floor, slept like a baby with the windows wide open - not a sound at night!

There is everything you need to cook proper meals - although there is a large choice of restaurants in walking distance. DON'T bring a car - no need public transport is so easy and cheap. The garden is lovely , very private with an amazing view. The sun goes off the garden around 4p.m. leaving a wonderful cool spot to enjoy the evening. I was here on my own to relax and do some work and the house and the town felt completely safe, all locals very friendly.

I hope to come again as this town and house have found a special place in my heart, a wonderful find. Thank you so much for sharing your home with me.

Beautiful House in magnificent location

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a wonderful location with magnificent views from the terrace over the Provencal hills. It is very well equipped - indeed every time we opened a cupboard we found something else we hadn't expected! In the absence of air conditioning the traditrional shutters were invaluable in maintaining the house at a cool temperature.

Stepping out of the terrace gate you are immediately in the centre of beautiful Haute-de-Cagnes and a short pull up to the Chateau and a delightful square with bars, restaurants and pentanque pitches - lovely and bustly on warm summer evenings. The neartest boulangeries are down the hill in the new town, so a bit of a climb back up with your morning croissants etc.

We ate outside on the terrace all the time (except when dining out at one of the excellent restaurants) so took full advantage of the wonderful terrace with its panoramic views. The weather was really hot during our stay but the terrace was cool and shady in the afternoon and evenings and a lovely place to unwind.

Access to the property by car is quite tricky, up a very steep and narrow cul-de-sac which becomes pedestrianised before you reach the house. There is no parking, so in order to unload and load we had to just block the road and carry all our luggage up the remainder of the hill to the house. It's also quite difficult to turn the car to get it back down the hill due to the narrowness of the road. This was only really a problem for unloading and loading though, because we left the car in a car park in the new town (2 Euros a day when there are available spaces, and free between 6pm and 9am) and used the free shuttle up to Haut-de-Cagnes and the house - it runs every 15 minutes and is a godsend when you are returning to the house with shopping. There's also a free shuttle down to the beach which goes about every 40 minutes from the new town.

We loved our stay in this beautiful house and had the most memorable and enjoyable holiday.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

When we entered the gate we were not disappointed. Having seen photos whilst booking we were eager to see for ourselves, then there it was in front of us, just beautiful. We decided there and then to utilise the garden. Previous holidays meant traipsing around in the heat. Not this year, it was books, chilled wine and good food. When it got too hot we pulled the sunbeds under the lovely orange tree for shade. Above the house are some lovely restaurants. The shuttle bus was very handy, especially coming from the supermarket. There is also a shuttle bus to the beach. Finally the house was so lovely and full of character. We had a great holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi Billy, Glad you had such a great time and enjoyed the garden as much as we do ,its like another world when you are stocked up with fresh food and wine , often its enough just to relax and take in the scenery. When you are in the mood theres so much to do and explore you could be there for months -its what we are working on, Thanks again Simon

Car: not necessary

Charming medieval village of Haut de Cagnes in the hinterland of Nice Ideally situated between Nice and Antibes.Its a short car or bus journey from Nice airport and within walking distance of the sea and beach.

You are a close walk to a great selection of Restaurants,bars and cafes so no worries about having drink or parking the car.Or if you fancy cooking yourself there are a great selection of boulangeries ,delicateness an outdoor and indoor market and a handy supermarket.

You are also close to the local bus terminus for exploring the area.

Haut de Cagnes is a magical find with its maze of jasmin filled cobbled alleys and flower clad vaulted archways,so close to all the action but not crowded by the many tourists that fill some neighbouring resorts.

The Grimaldi Chateau sits atop a beautiful square with glorious panoramic views of the Provencal countryside,this is where you will find a great selection of eateries to suite all budgets or just have a drink and enjoy the view.
