Swim from the sandy beach at the bottom of the garden or in the private pool, then breakfast on the terrace or on your bedroom balcony and enjoy one of the finest views on the Riviera. The great appeal of this special house is its unique location. The unspoilt panorama of sea and hills is stunning. Yet, despite its tranquil setting, you can walk to the village shops in five minutes.
La Couveuse is at the end of an unmade track with a gate at the bottom of the garden with opens onto a path that leads directly to one of the prettiest family beaches in the area. You're so close you can be in the sea within minutes of rolling out of bed. If you prefer to swim privately, there is a 12 m x 7 m chlorine-free heated swimming pool surrounded by a spacious terrace, ideal for sun bathing and gentle ball games. There are two other terraces and a place to play boules.
The house is furnished for relaxation. There are no antiques for children to damage, nor does the garden contain rare plants for them to trample on. From the terraces, you can't see another house. Just the sea with its changing traffic of small boats and a distant lighthouse and the island it protects.
