About Irma Jardine

I am living on this established family estate which was purchased 1957 . This 16 century mill with a river is situated on a 32 ha. park and farming estate and is incredibly well located on the Riviera. , yet it is totally hidden away. The water gardens were created 1957 and are well known as well as the rare trees. You will see me working in the gardens as well as picking peaches on the orchard during the season. I love to help where I can and I am always in a good mood!

Irma Jardine purchased this cottage in 1957

Once the gate opens you will realise the enormous size of property surrounded by flowering trees, vast open fields which are cut in June and ancient water gardens.

You notice the peace, space and beauty of it when you climb out of your car!

You can enjoy quiet walks along the peach trees and fields and meditate on your terrace!

You can travel within 15 minutes to Valbonne, Mougin Village, Mouans Sartoux , Cannes and Grasse for its perfume.

After a couple of days you have switched off and become totally relaxed. I am always there for advise or help if you want! I live in the main house which is across a bridge from the cottage and surrounded by gardens. I don't mind if you look at the waterfalls and ponds around the house! It is all open for you to enjoy! The running water of the river below the cottage puts you to sleep without doubt! you find that gardens and cottage are maintained to highest standard by the owners.

What makes this cottage unique

The land and set up is simply unique because it is so hidden and yet so close to shopping and Action!

Lovely retreat

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully located cosy cottage on an elegant and large estate. Very handy for restaurants and shopping. We had a relaxing and memorable time, with Irma looking after us very well despite now having to run her expansive property pretty much single-handedly. Her influence is obvious in the tasteful, homely, comfortable interiors. We mentioned the under-performing fridge so it can be put right for future guests. Long-term, the cottage needs air conditioning though fans and anti-mosquito strategies helped. The round pool, elegant pool house and Coco the daft dog were highlights! Highly recommended, just a couple of tweaks needed for perfection!

Oasis in a peach orchard.

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome awaits you from Irma and James to their amazing property. Our own river, orchard and a cosy and tastefully furnished cottage. A fantastic place to relax surrounded by peaceful aromatic gardens. Within easy reach of the coast and lots of places to visit, if you can drag yourself away from the pool tucked away in a quiet corner of the garden. Highly recommend a visit to and we would return in a heartbeat. Thanks Irma and James.

Herrliches Landhaus im Hinterland von Cannes

  • 5 of 5

In einem sehr geschmackvoll eingerichteten Ferienhäuschen auf dem weitläufigen Grundstück einer alten Mühle findet man Ruhe. Der Weg zum Pool, an dem man sich sehr gut entspannen kann, führt durch einen herrlichen Garten. Das ganze wird von der Gastfreundschaft der Besitzerin überstrahlt, die in der Mühle direkt nebenan wohnt. Sowohl durch ihre wertvollen Tipps für die Umgebung zu sehenswerten Zielen und Restaurants als auch durch ihre großzügigen Willkommensgeschenke fühlten wir uns sehr gut umsorgt. Wir genossen frische Pfirsiche aus der eigenen Pfirsichplantage während der Erntezeit und zur Begrüßung Baguette mit rohem Schinken, Marmelade und einer Flasche guten Wein. Ebenso gab es Wasser und Kaffee für die ersten Tage.

Das Haus liegt nur ca. 20 Meter vom Flüsschen Mourachonne entfernt, wodurch wir auch mit sehr vielen Stechmücken zu kämpfen hatten. Hier empfiehlt sich auf jeden Fall während der heißen Jahreszeit ein Moskitonetz, das wir zum Glück dabei hatten.

Die Lage nördlich von Cannes ist für die Besichtigung aller interessanten Ziele an der Cote d'Azur perfekt, die Autobahn ist nur 10 Autominuten entfernt.

Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Paradiesisch ...

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene, ein 10 Monate altes Kind) waren zwei Wochen im Juni zu Gast in Mouans Sartoux.

Das Cottage befindet sich auf einem parkähnlichen Anwesen, das von einem Flüsschen, der Mourachonne durchquert wird. Alles ist sehr liebevoll angelegt und sehr gepflegt. Neben dem Cottage befindet sich ein Pfirsichhain.

Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen. Zu unserer Überraschung waren Baguette, gesalzene Butter und Wein als Willkommensgruß bereitgestellt. Das Haus ist mit antiken Möbeln und Bildern sehr stimmig gestaltet und gemütlich eingerichtet. Wir fühlten uns schnell heimisch und nicht, als wären wir „nur“ in einem Ferienhaus. Für Freunde englischer Literatur gibt es ausreichend Bücher. Die Küche ist mit allem, was man zum Kochen braucht, ausgestattet. Es gibt neben einer Waschmaschine auch einen Trockner, was vor allem mit einem kleinen Kind sehr praktisch ist. Das WLAN funktioniert bestens, auch fernsehen ist damit kein Problem. Man kann morgens zum Frühstück hinter dem Haus in der Sonne sitzen und über die Pfirsichbäume schauen und abends auf der vor dem Haus liegenden großen Terrasse unter der Linde den Abend genießen – im Hintergrund das Rauschen der Mourachonne. Durchquert man den wunderschönen Garten der Vermieter, gelangt man zum großzügigen Pool mit Poolhaus. Wir konnten hier die Ruhe und Ungestörtheit genießen, waren immer allein am Pool. Insgesamt ist es ein Kleinod und Ort der Ruhe.

Das Anwesen ist nur wenige Fahrminuten von Mouans Sartoux entfernt gelegen. Hier gibt es verschiedene Supermärkte (teilweise Sonntags geöffnet) und einen Biomarkt. Donnerstag ist Markttag, es wird aber hauptsächlich Kleidung angeboten.

Aufgrund der sehr guten Verkehrsanbindung ist man schnell in Cannes sowie in Antibes, wo es auch Sandstrände gibt. Auch die Berge im Hinterland mit den vielen tollen Bergdörfern wie St. Paul de Vence oder Gourdon sind gut zu erreichen.

Herzlichen Dank an die Gastgeber für die wunderbare Gastfreundschaft und dieses grüne Paradies der Ruhe und Erholung fernab der Hektik der Küstenstädte.
