A young Provençal house on a lushly planted and screened piece of land where boundary hedging is high. In a guest wing, each pretty bedroom has its own patio, each bathroom is small and there’s a summer kitchen for guests to share. Friendly energetic Madame has furnished in contemporary style – greys, yellows, painted chairs, the odd antique. She offers a welcome glass of rosé on her stunning shaded terrace and leaves breakfast treats for you to rustle up when you want, including yogurt, cheese, brioche and homemade cake. The large mosaic’d pool is a pleasure on a summer’s day, and legendary St Paul de Vence is worth a trip.
