About: This house was the dream of my late husband and we enjoyed many years soaking in the French ambiance. During those years we totally upgraded the house to ensure comfort all year round. We bought the house from the famous American comedian, Carl Reiner and his wife, who are parents of Rob Reiner, producer of When Harry Met Sally. The house is filled w/ wonderful energy including Mel Brooks and his wife, Ann Bancroft.
The location is divine - 20 minutes North from the Med and south of the Alpes Maritimes. The climate is temperate in the winter months - sunny an allowing leisurely outdoor lunches w/ only a sweater.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This is a private, low key secluded property with no glitz - it offers relaxation, breathing room and wonderful day trips to interesting venues. Off season St. Tropez can be easily enjoyed - an hour away. Long day trips or overnight include Aix, Arles, St. Remy to the west and to the east lovely towns in Italy......Como is an easy 4 hour drive with Switzerland not far beyond.
