Year Purchased: 2007
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Everything you need is within a short walk from the Villa des Parfums. In the beautiful town of Grasse you can explore the many beautiful boutiques, buy your morning croissants at the local baker, stock up on supplies at the supermarket and sample French beers, wines and cuisine in the many cafes, bistros and restaurants! We are even within close walking distance of the bus and train stations where there is a regular service to take you all along the Cote d’Azur and even as far as Monte Carlo and Italy!
