Above the owners’ house and through the gate is the pool. Below are two cottages 15m apart, in grounds that merge with the neighbours’. The air is pure, the setting idyllic, and you could swim and snooze all day. Come night time, dine on your terrace as you gaze on the ‘village perché’ above.
The cottages are on different levels and the walls are thick, so they feel both private and cool. Furnishings are simple but tastefully done, and wood-burners add to the rustic charm.
Enjoy the fragrance boutiques of Grasse (8km), and the beaches of Antibes (25km). The medieval village is a brisk 20-minute walk uphill. Of its restaurants, two are worth a detour: ‘L’ecole des Filles’ and ‘Bistro Le Donjon’.
