About the property

A very peaceful place less than an-hour drive from the French Riviera

18th C hunting lodge with swimming pool filled with spring water. Renovated, furnished, tastefully decorated, and well-equipped. For those who love the French countryside. Only 1h away from the sea, the ski slopes, and Nice airport. It is very peaceful, not overlooked, though not isolated. Very nice view from the sunny and shaded terraces

On-site cooking meal available. The village’s inn offers a delicious Provencal cuisine with organic vegetables coming from the chef’s garden. It is ideal for a large family or a group of friends who want to spend some time together in a private setting. La Penne is 4 km away from Sigale in the Regional Natural Park of the Préalpes d'Azur. The surroundings are often referred as 'the small Switzerland' for its green hills and meadows.

Truly unique and spectacular property, perfect for a large family or friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

I booked the chateaux for 20 friends and family for my fortieth birthday and I couldn't have been happier. It is in a beautiful location with stunning views and is a huge amazing property. The area is truly beautiful and La Penne is a very pretty (if tiny) village. It only takes 1hr 15 mins from Nice Airport and whilst the last 20 minutes of the drive is dramatic it is well worth it. We went for multiple hikes and in the area and river rafting on the Var. I'll definitely reconsider coming back if I have future family events.

rust, privacy en natuur op een prachtige locatie

  • 5 of 5

Samen met onze vrienden (dertien, maar het hadden er met gemak meer dan twintig kunnen zijn) hebben we genoten van alle charmes en gemakken van het fraaie landgoed in La Penne in Zuid Frankrijk, waar we in het afgelopen jaar de lente mochten verwelkomen. Omgeven door een schitterende ruige natuur genoten van heerlijk weer met volop wandel mogelijkheden, een royaal zwembad naast de villa en bijzondere landschappen en aantrekkelijke dorpjes in het nabije gebergte. De villa zelf biedt naast meerdere privé vertrekken met een eigen badkamer en keuken, een royale, goed uitgeruste woon keuken en een eveneens ruime en gezellige woon eetkamer met een klassieke open haard. Met voor de villa o.a. om heerlijk op te lunchen over de volle breedte een groot terras dat uitzicht biedt over het dal. Kortom een ideaal vakantieoord voor wie rust, privacy en natuur zoekt. En toch niet helemaal van de wereld wil zijn. Een uurtje verderop ligt de luchthaven van Nice en na een vlucht van goed anderhalf uur later waren we weer thuis. Al met al een bijzondere ervaring die we bij deze graag delen.

Great characteristic château!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location, beautiful views from the many windows over the country side,. The appartments are very clean and comfortable. Fabulous terrace space for a lunch, drink or more, even during winter time we could sit every day outside while the sun was shining. The kitchen is very big and cozy. Lovely area for walking. In 1 word "Perfect" !

Not too far from Nice, close to pittoresque litte towns,

connected by magnificent Sycamore lined roads,

Up in the mountain lies La Penne, a chateau; no an ocean of tranquillity!

Highly recommended if you really want to leave the hustle and bustle behind.

Merci beaucoup, Alice.
