Rustic charm, beautiful views, fab restaurants, relaxation, historical towns. What more do you want?

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time in what was a beautiful farmhouse full of character and stunning views. Remy and Jacqueline greeted us and were charming throughout our stay, always making sure everything was fine but not interfering. The house was spotless and very comfortable. We were and family of eight all over 23 and everyone had their own space, bathrooms, and a place to relax either in the sun or the shade. We would definitely love to return. Thanks you Remy and Jacqueline for sharing your lovely home with us all. 😘?

Charming French house with stunning views, spacious interiors and fabulous pool

  • 5 of 5

A charming French house for two families to share as each family can occupy its own "wing".

The house has spacious living areas and a well equipped kitchen. We spent all of our time outside. The pool was a real highlight for us and we spent most days just hanging out here. The terrace has spectacular views of the village and surrounding countryside.

We had some great local tips from owner Remy and managed to tear ourselves away from our loungers to visit the busy but beautiful local beaches and sample the wine at Chateau de Berne. We enjoyed a great day at Belles Rives beach club too.

Thanks Remy! We'd love to come back one day.

Einfach traumhaft!

  • 5 of 5

Es waren sicher die zwei schönsten Ferien-Wochen die wir jemals erlebt haben. Wegen eines Familienfestes haben wir, 6 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder und unser kleiner Hund dieses Haus gemietet und uns von der ersten bis zur letzten Minute sehr wohl, ja richtig zuhause gefühlt.

Das historische Haus in dieser traumhaften Lage wurde mit viel Liebe und Engagement ausgebaut und faszinierte uns mit vielen kleinen Details. Es ist besonders geschmackvoll und reichhaltig ausgestattet, eine Seltenheit bei Ferienhäusern.

Es war alles vorhanden, was man für einen entspannten Urlaub braucht, sogar Kinderbett, Kinderstuhl und Laufstall. Die Küche ist modern und komplett ausgestattet und macht richtig Spass darin zu kochen.

Die vielen Stunden am Pool waren entspannend, dass Wasser fantastisch und ohne Chlor gepflegt, der Blick auf Saint Paul atemberaubend.

Sehr genossen haben wir, dass das Haus soviel Raum bietet, dass jeder sich ungestört zurückziehen konnte und nie das Gefühl von Enge aufkam.

Mit dem Auto war man in wenigen Minuten im qualitätvollen Supermarkt, Bäckerei, Sehenswürdigkeiten und sehr guten Restaurants. Die Vermieter sind bei allen Fragen sehr hilfsbereit und außerordentlich gastfreundlich, sprechen sehr gut englisch und italienisch und gaben uns immer das Gefühl willkommen zu sein.

Dieses Haus und sein Ambiente werden wir nie vergessen und zu gerne würden wir wieder einmal dahin zurückkehren.

Owner's Response: It has been a real pleasure to have the whole family and friends in our villa. We remember the time you spend during the day around the swimming pool and the night on the terrace always laughing and having a good time. Come back again whenever you want . Kind regards Remy and Jacqueline

Just beautiful. Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This is one of the most beautiful vacation rentals we ever had. This historic house has been restored with so much care and taste. Each of the rooms is special, with great views of St. Paul and/or the wonderful garden. Our kids just loved their rooms in the "tower" and we loved our room in the even older part of the building. Beautiful terrace with only a few steps to the pool. And our dog disappeared in the gardens for hours. Ask Remy, the landloard, and he will explain to you the scenic trail to St. Paul de Vence which we were hiking the other day to have breakfast at the Cafe de la Place. If you want to walk a little further, you can even reach La Foundation Maeght by foot. There is so much to see and visit nearby (Vence, Nice, Antibes, Cannes) but we caught ourselves just wanting to stay at the house. Our hosts Remy and Jacqueline were very kind and helpful, both giving us advice on shopping opportunities, sightseeing and hiking possibilities. And they kept their cool when we broke the glass of one of the terrace doors ... So many thanks et on reviendra.
