A charming village high above Nice, a handsome house renovated by a very talented designer. You'll eat well too - Anne is an inspired cook

Discover a truly beautiful 18th-century 'bastide' basking between mountains and sea in the sunny Côte d'Azur close to stunning St Paul de Vence and Nice. Anne, a talented designer, has converted the south-west facing village mansion impeccably. Find ornamental gates, a courtyard paved with pebbles, gorgeous bedrooms with antiques – some with private terraces – and a lounge with a warming fireplace. Stroll through the fecund garden cooled by an ancient fountain that pours into a swimming pool. Meet like-minded folk around a big, convivial table for sublime regional meals or wander into the village for craft shops by the castle.
