About Liesel Havercroft
Having worked on yachts for many years cruising all over the world we came to France over a decade ago to put down some roots. I have retired from yachting to take on my new role as mum to two very lively boys. Hubby still works as a Captain on a yacht, but we enjoy our family time at Riveloup out of season! Growing up in South Africa, I wanted to give our children the close to nature childhood that I enjoyed as a child. When I first saw Riveloup I knew straight away that this is the place as it reminded me of my childhood in so many ways. Hubby grew up in Lincolnshire in a farming community and also had a passion for nature from an early age. We share the idea of a barefoot childhood (so very African) for our children and having a river in the back garden is the cherry on the cake for us. The boys spend hours there and love throwing rocks in the river! The essence of yachting is attention to detail and striving to please this is something that we also apply to Riveloup! Let us know ahead of time what your requirements are and we'll try our best to accommodate you.

Why Liesel Havercroft chose Tourrettes-sur-Loup
Riveloup is very well situated, bridging the gap between exploring in land and enjoying the coast. The coastal towns can get extremely busy in the summer and the traffic heavy, at Riveloup you'll be able to choose when you want the buzz, but you can come back late afternoon to enjoy a peaceful time by the pool or river. The sound of the river is very soothing and there are stunning views to enjoy from different angles of the property. It is close enough to town like Valbonne, Grasse, Chateauneuf, Le Rouret, Bar-sur-Loup or Tourrettes-sur-Loup to enjoy a meal out at night. We have an extensive restaurant guide and activity book at home to help you choose the right place for the right day. We have guests who never leaves the property once they get here, as it is a place to unwind and relax!
What makes this Cottage unique
Riveloup is unique in the sense that the river is on the edge of the property and it ads a great addition to the property. For a lot of our guests this is the best part of the property, especially if you have children enjoying the holiday with you. You probably wouldn't want to drive down to the coast daily and the coast is extremely busy in the summer, down by the river you have a sandy beach where children can still build sand castles and also be close to nature. Kids love to watch the little fish and tiny frogs, making object out of the clay from the river, building rock pools and skipping stones. The brave ones (and adults) can jump in from the opposite river bank or just drift on a tube. Our rates are ALL inclusive, no extras or hidden fees! Your rate includes accommodation for up to 5 guests, sheets, towels, pool towels, wifi, English TV and cleaning after departure. The property is set on 1ha of flat parkland, with beautiful trees and views and plenty of activities on the property and in the surrounding area. The flat garden is not only safe, but also a great place for children to play and run around. The swimming pool is fenced off. There is also a large sandpit, trampoline, table tennis, boules court, large football pitch. We are well set up for small children and babies, and will try to accommodate you as best as we can to make your stay with children worry free, safe and enjoyable. We have 2 x cots with comfortable mattresses and bed linen, 2 x bed safety rails for toddlers, 2 x changing mats, 1 x baby bath, potty and toilet trainer seat, 1 x Maclaren stroller.
