Set in the hill top village of Montauroux, this traditional French villa offers a secluded haven away from it all without being out in the sticks. Montauroux offers a range of traditional French restaurants and cafes, as well as fantastic local butchers and patisseries. It is also 10 minutes drive from idyllic Lac Cassian. Being 45 minutes drive from Nice Airport and Cannes, it is not only ideally located but situated in a picturesque location with stunning mountain walks close by. Dine al fresco on one of the sunny garden tiers amidst a grove of 30 mature olive trees, part of a 300 year old olive grove, as the sweet aroma of lavender wafts around you.
In the evenings, turn on the lights that drape over the trees and talk until the early hours drinking the local wine in the evening warmth. The beautiful garden landscaped into a graduated levels creates a rustic setting for sunbathing around a large 12m x 7m totally private and exclusive oval pool, great for the kids or doing some lengths of the pool for exercise. There are 2 off road car parking spaces. The house is set on a 2500 m² plot, with 3 double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a 4th dining room/playroom and fully equipped kitchen, is ideal for both families and groups of friends or couples abroad. It is a rare property in the area where most properties for rent are modern and therefore naturally lack the same character as a traditional villa where part of the house is in fact a 200 year old shepherds cabin with 2 foot thick walls and floor boards that separate the bedroom from the downstairs area where the sheep would sleep at night.
Outside you will find plenty of space to play for the kids, a table tennis table, boules area and badminton court where you will find a chill out area to sit. On the next tier you'll find an orchard with apple trees, a walnut tree, fig tree and a peach tree amongst two younger olive trees.
For those of you with dogs, they are very welcome. The property is completely fenced in and there is no danger of them escaping. A walk through the forest is on the door step. My own dog loves it here.
For eating out, you'll will find a great patisserie on the square for fresh pain au chocolat to go with your cafe creme at one of two cafes. For lunchtime and evening you'll find 3 restaurants in the village serving excellent food at a good price.
You will note the beauty of the house as you look through the photos and that is exactly how you will find it in reality.
