Better than imagined!
Better than imagined!
We have stayed at dozens of VRBO properties in the past and never have we enjoyed one as much as Villa des Parfums in the lovely town of Grasse! The pictures do not do justice to this magnificent property! There is street that runs by the Villa but it is very quiet and absolutely does not affect the enjoyment of the property. Nicole is one of the finest hostesses we've ever met and offers the cleanest, best equipped and comfortable properties we have ever stayed at. The views of the town, the surrounding country and the Med with yachts dotting the sea are magnificent! The pool is sparkling clean with plenty of comfortable lounges and chairs. The queen size bedding is very comfortable with quality linens and cozy comforters. The towels are lush. The kitchen is beautiful and offers virtually everything you could ask for. There is a new Weber barbeque. High quality cabinetry with soft close feature. Lots of silverware; a selection of sharp knives and lots of plates, glasses etc. even plastic glasses for around the pool. All in all, a truly enjoyable, quiet and easy place to stay. Grasse is a old/new town of moderate size and the people are friendly. There are narrow alleys and streets to wander through; a wide variety of shops with something for everyone and many sidewalk cafe's to experience. And the perfume tour is interesting and only takes about one hour including a visit to the shop. ONE NOTE! Nicole gives good directions, however you must follow them closely! The 'street' indeed does narrow to a trail and we arrived after dark and went beyond and had to slowly, painstakingly back down a winding, extrodinarily narrow path using only mirrors. NOT RECOMMENDED for the faint of heart with a rental!! Thank you Nicole for your hospitality - we truly hope to visit again very soon. My wife and I most enthusiastically recommend Villa des Parfums and Nicole to you! Enjoy!!

About the owner: Growing up in Scotland where the sun rarely shines, my family often vacationed in France. From a very young age I dreamed one day of living in Southern France. After spending a year in France working for my French Masters Degree, my dreams began to come true when I met and then married my handsome and romantic French husband! After completing our studies and living in Scotland for the first decade of our married lives, we finally moved to the French Riviera in 2006. We, and our son, love the outdoor life here and enjoy walking and running on the many fabulous trails right on our doorstep. We love waking up to sunshine 300 days a year and to the incredible views of the beautiful and historic town of Grasse and the Mediterranean coast....where the closest beaches are only a short drive away!
Why the Owner Chose Grasse:
The picturesque medieval town of Grasse is rich in history and dates back to the 11th Century. Well known as the world’s perfume capital which developed in the 18th century thanks to the abundance of floral crops favored by the fabulous year round microclimate, there are plenty of opportunities to discover the beautiful secrets and scents of this creative and fascinating industry in the Museums and Perfumeries. Grasse is famously known as the ‘Balcony of the Cote d’Azur’, set in the foothills of the Southern Alps and overlooking the mediterranean, so whether you are looking for a peaceful sanctuary or an action-packed vacation, Grasse has it all. Only 12 kilometers north of Cannes, 20 kilometers from Antibes, 35 kilometers from Nice and just an hour’s drive from Monaco, Grasse is the ideal location for a fabulous stay on the French Riviera, whether you prefer all that glitters on the glamorous coast, a quiet retreat by the pool surrounded with spectacular panoramic views, discovering the many quaint and beautiful close-by villages such as Valbonne, Mougins, Vence & St Paul de Vence or enjoying the many sporting and leisure opportunities available in the area.
