About the property

Four Bed Three Bath Villa, Sleeps Eight, Peaceful Location with Mountain Views

Four bedroom three bathroom two storey detached Provencal villa boasting a completely renovated interior finished to an extremely high contemporary standard. A covered ground floor south-facing terrace is perfect for eating and relaxing while a newly created elegant stone terrace offers a stylish summer kitchen and bar equipped with a gas barbecue with hot plate, dishwasher, sink and wine fridge perfect for lazy evenings a la maison. The first floor terrace overlooking the valley and Gorges du Loup is accessed by three of the four bedrooms through sliding glass doors which disappear into the wall offering magnificent views and a spacious upper terrace bathed in full sunshine from which to enjoy morning coffee or a sun downer cocktail. The main master suite offers a dressing room and luxurious spacious bathroom with freestanding bath looking down the valley, wet room shower and Italian stone sinks as well as access to the main upper terrace. Two further double bedrooms with built in wardrobes have access to the same first floor terrace and share a newly renovated wet room style family bathroom with double sink. The fourth bedroom is also a master suite, with its own dressing area and en suite shower room, making the property perfect for two families. It has a Juliet balcony and its own first floor access to a separate side terrace. The house features Italian travertine stone floors throughout to help maintain an ambient temperature in the summer months. A modern open plan living and dining area on the ground floor has floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which disappear into the wall when opened, leading onto the sophisticated summer kitchen and entertaining terrace. There is also an open fire and log store, laundry room with second wine fridge, fully equipped modern kitchen, with an American fridge freezer with ice maker and Nespresso coffee machine. There is a WC downstairs and an open plan stone staircase leading to the first floor bedrooms and bathrooms. There is also a music room with piano which doubles as a spacious office with desk and full internet facilities should you need to keep in touch with work. A smaller second office is adjacent. The garden spans five terraces with phenomenal views of this spectacular and verdant valley, a completely un-overlooked contemporary south facing pool wrapped by a travertine sun terrace with loungers, a small olive grove and plum, orange, lemon and fig trees as well as a small raised herb garden. This stylish, peaceful, light filled villa occupies a secluded position which is not overlooked, yet is only a few minutes walk from the heart of the village.

The pool terrace boasts an 80 metre wrap around Italian travertine terrace which enjoys sunshine from early morning until early evening. The perfect place for a sun downer or a chilled glass of rose, with amazing views of the valley and Gorges du Loup.

The house was recently awarded a four star rating through the prestigious Etoiles de France programme and was also featured in the property section of the London Metro newspaper in 2016.

Mas St Michel is a family home and as such, we hope that you find it a home from home with all the added extras that many holiday homes do not provide..CDs, DVDs, cookbooks and high quality furnishings.

We can also recommend a number of services to make your stay that little bit extra special....a private chef company for restaurant standard cuisine at the house, a beautician for facials and beauty treatments in the comfort of the villa, a masseuse for home massages and a yoga instructor who can provide private classes by the poolside for beginners upwards. It’s advisable during high season to book in advance. Please enquire for further details on these services.

About Karen Kershaw

We gave up busy lives in London to move to the beautiful Cote d'Azur with our two daughters and have never looked back. Waking up to spectacular views every day and living in such a friendly, community orientated village is something we never take for granted. It's a pleasure to share our home each summer with visitors from far and wide.

Why Karen Kershaw chose Le Bar-sur-Loup

If you are looking for a modern, well appointed, comfortable and stylish home with all mod cons yet a sense of being nestled in the very heart of the Provencal countryside, then look no further.

What makes this villa unique

The stunning views, being a short walk from four great restaurants and the heart of the village, losing yourself on the sunny tranquil pool terrace, reading on one of the many other terraces.....the list is endless!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are absolutely enjoying our stay in your beautiful villa. I must say that we are really impressed with the house. It's so welcoming and clean and everything works perfectly. It's such a nice and relaxing stay. Of course the children spend all their time by the pool, perfect!

Loved it so much we came back again !

  • 5 of 5

The villa is simply gorgeous, it's so easy to stay here, the view is amazing, the great sized pool, the outdoor kitchen, it has everything you could possibly need. There are some very good restaurants in walking distance. It is a great location for shopping, sightseeing, beach, markets, etc , you can do so much or so little. Karen & Iain are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble, even showing my husband in great lengths how the TV worked so he could watch the world cup football! It is their home, so they know so many great places to go. We tried the canyoning in The Loup which was great fun! We certainly will be back here again, and highly recommend it!

Fantastic house

  • 4 of 5

This property is beautifully conceived and the internal house could not be faulted unless you are desperate for air con.

Fantastic kitchen and facilities outside for bbq and pizza oven etc all great. We found the induction hob very tricky to control but very responsive once you mastered the controls.

Lovely sitting areas for chilling out

Lovely pool area and terraced gardens

Sadly there are ferocious mosquitos here - we were all bitten badly over our week

Externally it would be good to clarify this is on an extremely steep terraced hillside with very precarious access in a family car. This was surprisingly stressful going in and out and the walk into the village for the boulangerie is also very steep - not a relaxing morning walk! The centre of the hilltop town is lovely once you get there with a lovely restaurant in the square

I would recommend this property as it is a lovely place and a gorgeous and very comfortable house done with much attention to detail

This is a beautiful home, renovated with great style to provide comfort and privacy in peaceful surroundings with wonderful views and a nice pool.

Karen was a very helpful host, arranging a taxi from the airport for us, complete with supermarket stop. (A little épicerie and a couple of boulangeries are also a stroll away in the village so we managed happily without a car.)

We went on some lovely walks thanks to her suggestions and enjoyed all four excellent restaurants in the village.

Lottie, the resident white cat, exemplified the vibe of this place: elegant lounging with a contented purr.

Le Bar sur Loup is a charming medieval village close to the perfume capital of Grasse and within a 30 minute drive of Nice, St Paul de Vence, Antibes and Cannes. The area is one of outstanding natural beauty, within easy reach of the mountains, coast, picturesque Lac de St Cassien and the River Loup. The area is popular for paragliding, canoeing, canyoning, hiking, cycling, walking and running. The house is situated a five minute walk from the centre of the medieval village, where there are two boulangeries, a supermarket, bar and four fantastic restaurants; the quirky Ecole des Filles, stylish bistro le Donjon, the elegant Les Jasmins and La Jarrerie. Close by there are also tennis courts, a tabac, pharmacy and a market vegetable stall every Saturday morning. The village of Gourdon, famed for its precariously perched position and views, is just 15 minutes drive.

Other Activities: Canyoning

Golf: There are many golf courses within 30 minutes of the villa. Details on request.

Ski: The local ski resort is 35 minutes away. There are five excellent ski resorts within 2 hours. It is possible to ski at the local resort every morning and return home in time for lunch on the sunny terrace.
