Sunloungers and parasols overlook and lead to a private pool with views across a valley of pine forests were you can watch the sunrise and set with a good novel & a glass of rose. Our villa sleeps 6 with 3 dbl bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 living areas so the ground floor can be self contained to give additional privacy. The interiors with marble floors have been beautifully restored to create a romantic hideaway with crystal chandeliers and carefully chosen furnishings. The village has all you need with St Paul a few minutes drive. The River loup is a stroll down the road. Tennis,golf and beaches are nearby. Ideal for a romantic getaway,families with children aged 10 and above & friends sharing. Please see our guest reviews.


PROPERTY LOCATION/REVIEWS: Le Cottage du Loup villa is on the edge of the charming ancient village of La Colle sur Loup with full amenities yet only a 5 min drive to the medieval walled village of St Paul de Vence. Both villages offer an array of restaurants and markets. St Paul has many art galleries and the foundation Maeght is a must for art lovers. A short 5 minute walk from the villa takes you down to the River Loup carved through a beautiful leafy revine.

The nearest beach is 10-15 mins drive but the choice along the coast is vast. Golf courses and tennis nearby. A great area for cycling enthusiasts too. With plenty of watersports along the coast. Nice is only 15 mins, Antibes 20, Cannes 35, Monaco 40 or a train runs along the coast from Cagnes sur mer if you prefer a break from driving only 10 mins away with parking. If you have some time left there's an immense choice of shops and boutiques for shopping of all kinds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We live in the UK with our two daughters.We fell in love with Le Cottage from the moment we walked up the drive as she is hidden. After purchasing in 2003 it then took us a further 5 years to renovate including the addition of a pool which overlooks a magnificent view down a conservation valley of pine trees. We wanted to create somewhere really special to go, full of beautiful things. Each time we arrive we all still feel excited and have had some wonderful times with family and friends. We now have regular guests who revisit each year and they also feel like its their home from home.

Why the Owner Chose La Colle-sur-Loup:
We love the area with its diversity from historic towns, beautiful walled villages, mountains and having the sea close by. Also the way of life, food, wine and of course the sunshine. It has great access to the airport 15 mins, trains 10 mins, motorway 7 mins. Its close to Nice, Cannes, Antibes and only 40 mins to Monaco. It has great links to pretty much anywhere along the coast or inland. The area is so diverse being close to beaches, mountains, river walks and all amenities whether you want to play golf, tennis or visit one of the beautiful hill top villages like St Paul only a 5 minute drive away. There is so much to do and never enough time. Although it is close for accessibility it is tucked away for when you want to enjoy some relaxing time out with magnificent views.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Le Cottage du Loup is on the edge of the beautiful historic La Colle Sur Loup village.You have all you need in the village Bakery, butchers, Grocers, Cafes, restaurants, banks, chemist and an open market on Saturday mornings. Many of our guests intend on visiting so many places but say once they arrive they stock up on food and wine and spend most of their days by the pool and cook on the big range gas BBQ. Or go for a stroll down to the River Loup which is a lovely tree lined walk where you can also rock climb. La Colle Sur Loup is a short 10 minute drive from St Paul de Vence which is one of the most visited and oldest medieval towns on the French Riviera and the second most visited in France, it is well known for its modern and contemporary art museums and galleries such as Fondation Maeght which is located nearby. Saint-Paul de Vence has long been a haven of the famous. During the 1960s, it was frequented by French actors Yves Montand, Simone Signoret and Lino Ventura, and poet Jacques Prévert. Saint-Paul is also well known for the artists who have lived there, such as Marc Chagall, Samivel and more recently the couple Bernard-Henri Lévy and Arielle Dombasle. Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has a home there. Making this not only the perfect romantic getaway, but you never know who you may bump into.
