General Description

Villas which evoke such a feeling of calm, aesthetic harmony, beauty sheer perfection are rare - this is is one of those villas.

It sits on a hillside amidst pretty landscaped gardens overlooking woodland, with views up to the ancient village of Châteauneuf de Grasse, and just above its sister villa. Each villa has been designed to feel quite private and independent from the other, and larger parties benefit from the possibility of booking both villas together and sharing the whole estate.

The magic is everywhere you look, whether indoors or outdoors - furnishings, meticulous attention to detail, soothing schemes, original artwork…everything has received complete care and attention. This luxurious family home is incredibly spacious and light with plenty of creature comforts like air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, equipment, a gym, a wood-fired pizza oven and a large gas barbecue. The gardens are filled with lavender, rosemary, olive trees and have a lovely children's play area. The beautiful large pool and terraces complete the perfect picture.

If you can drag yourself away from all the comfort and beauty, everything here is at your doorstep. The village is a 10-minute walk away. Markets are held in Valbonne and Mouans Sartoux only minutes away, Antibes (with its Aquapark) and Cannes are only 18-22km away, the pretty village of Saint Paul de Vence is an easy 30-minute drive and Nice is just 35km away.

This villa is the perfect blend of both natural and man-made beauty with all the best that the French Riviera has to offer.
