A charming modernised 18th century 5 bedroom farmhouse, Le Grand Vallon, and a recently built 4 bedroom Provençal villa, Le Petit Vallon, set in a large garden with a swimming pool.
This property is ideal for families or groups of friends who want to holiday together but have some independence as each of the two houses has its own well-equipped kitchen, large reception room with dining area, covered terrace, WiFi, telephone and TV & DVD player.
The swimming pool, sheltered by mature trees on three sides, offers a wonderful place to swim or relax and lime trees near the house provide shade for meals and relaxing in the garden.
The property is just 10 mins walk from the centre of the flourishing village of Peymeinade, where there is a supermarket and a variety of shops as well as several bars, cafés and restaurants. There is an attractive central square with a playground, a good tourist information office and a popular weekly market selling local produce, clothes and souvenirs.
And Peymeinade is a wonderful base for exploring the treasures of the Côte d’Azur and Alpes-Maritimes without having to drive too far.
It is just 3 miles from Grasse with its famous perfumeries to visit, spectacular views across the Côte d’Azur to the sea and winding cobbled streets of the old quarter.
The nearest beach is half an hour away at Cannes La Bocca. The sandy beaches of Antibes, Juan les Pins, Théoule and Agay are also within easy reach.
The beautiful lake of St Cassien, 20 mins away, also provides excellent swimming, windsurfing and sailing.
In winter there is skiing about an hour away by car at Gréolières-les-Neiges and Andon and, about 2 hours away, at Valberg, Auron, Isola 2000 and La Foux d'Allos.

Peymeinade is part of the coastal strip of Alpes-Maritimes, bounded by mountains and sea, which enjoys a favoured micro-climate that has attracted discriminating visitors from the British Isles for 180 years.
Le Grand Vallon, the farmhouse, sleeps 9 in 5 bedrooms of which 2 are en suite. Le Petit Vallon, the villa, sleeps 7 in 4 bedrooms of which 3 are en suite.
