Cradled in summer by cicada chant and the gentle wind, cocooned in winter in a romantic log-warmed bedroom, you will be bewitched by the subtle mix of clean-cut modernity and fine oriental detail that your much-travelled polyglot hosts have achieved in this craggy old house with a beautiful garden. Karin from Sweden and French/Dutch Sydney love pampering people. The rough hills outside highlight the delicacy inside, the natural walled pool, the stunning bathrooms (one with a tub for two), the civilised conversation if you have dinner. You can drive up the road and catch the tram straight into Nice. Worth every centime.
