Quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a quiet location in the countryside away from the bustle of the coast. There are lots of walks in the area, some sweet little towns and some lovely lakes and rivers. Yet all the facilities you would need are also nearby with several supermarkets within walking distance and an English speaking doctor isn't very far away.

The house is indeed on a bit of a steep rubble road, so be careful as you drive in. The house itself has lots of character with a lovely pool which we used daily.

The owner was very friendly, helpful and quick to respond when we had a few small issues.

Overall we had a really lovely relaxing stay and would certainly come back again.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Just spent an amazing week enjoying the sights of the French Riviera. La Fontanelle is situated just below the beautiful and charming Montauroux. The villa is as described, very rustic, clean and has everything and more that we needed for two families of four.The outside areas are great, plenty of space to relax during both the day and night...great BBQ and fantastic swimming pool which was used every day! We were kept informed about our stay, any qustions we had were answered swiftly. We loved the town of Montauroux, especially the two restaurants we visited (La Marina and La Table d'Osani) and Fayance market on a Tuesday. The beaches of Frejus and Cannes only a short drive away. Places like Nice, Monaco and St Tropez all worth a visit as was Lac de st Cassien, Gorge du Verdon and St Paul de Vence. After a fantastic stay, we would all highly recommend La Fontanelle, and will hopefully return again some day.

Charming house in a charming village

  • 4 of 5

Super nice house in a great area. Close to both beautiful villages, a lovely lake and the Riviera. The owner and the house manager were both really helpful and super service minded. The house is just as pretty as the pictures. We were two family’s spending a week at the house. It got a little crowded since our kids are small and can´t sleep too far away from us, but it worked out fine and had a great time. The road to the villages is really steep, but we were prepared since the owner described the area to us before we left home.

Ein bezauberndes Haus Schwimmen-Schlafen-Ausflüge

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten unsere 14 Tage Urlaub an diesem wundervollen Ort. Zwei junge

Familien mit insgesamt 6 Kindern im Alter von 15 Jahren bis 8 Monaten. Das Haus ist so liebevoll eingerichtet und wir hatten wirklich Alles was wir brauchten. Wir konnten jeden Tag im Pool schwimmen, vor allem unsere Kinder hatten sehr viel Spaß (.... und wir Eltern unsere Ruhe!). Abends saßen wir oft lange auf der schönen Terasse und haben gegrillt, gelesen, Spiele gespielt oder einfach die Ruhe genossen. Ein Bäcker, ein toller Obst-und Gemüsehändler und ein großer Supermarkt waren ganz in der Nähe.

Das Haus liegt sehr zentral an der Code Azur. Da man mit dem Auto in 5 Minuten (12 km) auf der Autobahn ist, sind Tagesausflüge jederzeit - und vor allem ohne großen Aufwand - möglich. Nizza, Antibes, Cannes oder sogar Monaco sind innerhalb einer Autostunde zu erreichen. Wir waren rund um zufrieden. Die Eigentümer des Hauses waren sehr darum bemüht, uns einen schönen Urlaub zu ermöglichen. Sie, aber auch die Haushälterin vor Ort waren immer telefonisch erreichbar.

Die geniale Lage des Hauses hat auch einen kleinen Nachteil. Die Anfahrt führt über einen steilen Hang, der bei der Einfahrt zum Grundstück nochmals steiler wird. Dies ist jedesmal etwas Nervenkitzel, aber den Kindern hat´s gefallen.

Insgesamt ein super Urlaub und wärmstens zu empfehlen.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We're very happy with our stay at La Fontanelle and we found everything that we were looking for: Short trips to the lovely near-by villages and the Riviera, lazy days by the pool and a wonderful terrace for nice meals ”en famille”. The property is great with both local charm and lots of space.

Very nice location, calm and rural yet with amenities within close reach.

Montauroux is one of five medieval villages located just west of Grasse and nw of Cannes. The other villages are called Callian, Tourettes, Fayence and Seillans. We are 30 minutes from Cannes and 45 minutes from Nice airport. Opposite the house, on the other side of the valley, you will find the new exclusive 36-holes golf course Terre Blance. With the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel Resort.

La Fontanelle is situated in a quiet surrounding but still very close to supermarkets a couple of minutes by car. Our nearest neighbour is a castle with a magnificent park. The sea is aprox 30 minutes away by car.

Other Activities: sailplaining, 10 golfcourses within 35 minutes, antique markets
