I moved with my husband Art to the south of France with the idea of staying for a couple of years but we fell in love with the area and its amazing climate. We were lucky enough to find "La Bastide Saint Christophe" and to make it our home. I hope to offer our guests a sense of the beauty and tranquility that enchanted us when we moved here more than 20 years ago!
Milly purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Milly chose Grasse
We were actually looking for what seemed like the impossible property! A characterful house big enough for us to live in and rent out holiday apartments somewhere in the Grasse area or a village nearby. To top it all it had to be south facing, not on a main road, and walking distance to the local boulangerie.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our initial reaction after the first viewing was a great big headache.........Maybe it was the wallpaper and crépi (all now thankfully removed!) or it was just too much to take in, but it was scarily perfect for us! Gorgeous authentic village, lovely views, beautiful old olive grove, characterful architecture, place for a pool and walking distance not only to the boulangerie but to excellent restaurants as well!

Everything was wonderful!
La Bastide Saint Christophe is the perfect place to stay. We cannot fault it. We just didn't stay there long enough :)
Friendly, efficient, clean, comfortable, spacious... and great location to experience the joys of the French countryside and mountain villages, with Nice and the dazzling coastline within an hour away.
Thank you Milly and family!
Our stay at La Bastide Saint Christophe exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the Top Apartment, which allowed us to awake each day to opening the french doors in the living area and enjoy the beautiful view beyond. The visual inspiration that view provided, had us walking into the wonderful village of le Bar sur Loup just about every morning. In fact, we walked all over this lovely and authentic village often at various times of the day.
The apartment itself was lovely, spotless and appointed in traditional Provence fashion. The provisions provided, be it in the kitchen, sitting area, bedrooms and on and on, were meticulously thought out. Every single question that might arise for the guests have been addressed and answered in a binder for everything from wifi, the pool, local referrals for restaurants, medical, etc. We were very impressed with how detailed and accommodating the hosts have prepared the apartments for their guests stay. It was effortless, allowing for all our attention to be focused on enjoying our stay.
Our trips to Grasse (perfumeries), Gourdon, Tourettes sur loup, Nice, Eze, were wonderful and close enough to enjoy the beautiful routes to get there. The hosts/owners, Art and Milly could not have been more helpful or available and we look forward to our next trips to this magical area of France.

beautiful apartment with incredible view
We had a great stay in la Bastide. The apartment, the garden, the view and the swimming pool are simply fabulous. Perfect for relaxing, and great starting point for exploring the wonderful Alpes Maritimes. Communication with Art and Milly was great, and they were so helpful. Can't wait to go back next year.
Superb location in Alpes Maritime
We have been here several times but the quality of the facilities remain at the same level; excellent!
The place is very well maintained and very clean. The owners are always available and very friendly. You are not in a "Ikea environment" but in a real Provencal house.
We really recommend this property
A great find!
We stayed in the top apartment for 3 nights in late June, we were fortunate enough to be there the weekend of the Fete de la St Jean, which is a major weekend long event with bonfires, dinners, traditional music and dancing. The apartment is well equipped, has a gorgeous panoramic view and the pool was just fantastic. There are a few restaurants nearby within walking distance and it is a great location for touring Grasse, Gourdon and surround villages. Make sure you take free Florian confectionery tour just a few minutes drive.
Art and Milley were great hosts and very helpful, they live on site and are available if you should need assistance.
Although the top apartment has 2 bedrooms, the 2nd bedroom off of the kitchen is quite small (perfect for kids) with 2 small twin beds, so for 4 adults you should consider one of their larger apartments. Also note the 5th bed is in same bedroom as the double bed. But we loved it and it was so much nicer than being in a cramped hotel room or B&B.
la Bastide St Christophe, Bar sur Loupe
We booked a small apartment at this lovely house and got a lovely top floor apartment with stunning views over the countryside.
The owners were there to greet us and made us very welcome. They have so much local knowledge and speak so many languages it was fantastic and helped us settle into the area and its attractions very quickly.
The owners have maintained the apartments in an authentic provencal style but with all the mod cons you need for a relaxing holiday where you can fully self cater.
The house had a beautiful swimming pool which we could use which was lovely especially as the weather was so warm. We had our own outside private space which was great too.
We found the area really interesting with Grasse nearby and only 30 mins to the coast. Being a little higher, it was a bit cooler than down at the sea, which was very pleasant.
Loads of shops for food etc. very nearby but I would recommend hiring a car so you can get out and enjoy the medieval fortified towns as well as the coast.
The property was exactly as described but no - maybe better! The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and anything we needed, they helped us with. The place was spotless when we arrived and was easy to keep clean and maintain during our stay as all cleaning stuffs were fully provided. Wi FI was great for my teenage son to keep in touch with his friends.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone - from couples to those with families as there is a wealth of activities as well as being a peaceful location.
We will definitely be rebooking at some point next year.
The perched village of Le Bar sur Loup is located between Grasse and Nice at the beginning of the picturesque Gorges du Loup. Here, the best of both worlds exists with the peace and beauty of the countryside and the excellent proximity to the towns on the Riviera.
The village itself has good facilities, including numerous restaurants, several bakeries, general store, pharmacy and post office.
Other Activities: go-karting, wine tasting
