Property description

'La Plantade' is a romantic and elegant Provençal villa filled with antiques and fine paintings. It is hidden down a private lane yet only a 3 minute walk to the picturesque medieval artists' village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup. The magnificent views range from the blue of the Côte d'Azur to hilltop 'perched' villages and surrounding mountains. The beautiful landscaped garden contains many varieties of old roses and palms. A large terrace around the house overlooks the pool area and the driveway with parking for 3-4 cars. Nice and its airport are 20 minutes away. First class restaurants abound and sports include tennis (2 minutes' walk), golf, cycling, hiking, riding and paragliding. Cannes, Monaco, Menton, Antibes and Italy are all within easy driving distance. For art lovers there are numerous museums nearby: the Foundation Maeght in St-Paul-de-Vence, the Picasso Museum in Antibes, the Chagall, Renoir and Matisse museums outside of Nice. Please contact the owner for further information.


Golf Courses: On an average of 30-40 minutes’ drive from 'La Plantade' there are 11 outstanding golf courses. Most of these include driving ranges and lessons. They are located in areas also renown for good restaurants, such as in Mougins, where there are 2: Golf de Valescure and Golf de Cannes Mougins. In Valbonne there is Golf d'Opio Valbonne and the Victoria Golf Club, whilst in Grasse there is the Golf de Grasse Country Club and Golf de Saint Donat. Closer to the coast in the famous glass-making village of Biot there is the Golf de Biot. If you want to be very near the coast then just beyond Cannes in Mandelieu-La-Napoule there are another two: Riviera Golf Club and Golf de Cannes Mandelieu. Further afield there is the Monte Carlo Golf Club and another in Tende, Golf de Vievola. Some of these also have pools, tennis courts and riding facilities.

Skiing: There are a number of ski areas within easy driving distance of 'La Plantade.' Winter 2005 saw 5 snowfalls of c 20 centimetres each on the Riviera. The nearest ski area is Gréolières-les-Neiges at 30 minutes’ drive. Its altitude is 1400-1800 m covering more than 1000 ha. There are 10 lifts serving 3 blue, 3 green, 15 red and 2 black runs over 30 kilometres. A drive of slightly over an hour takes you to the ski area of Beuil-Valberg at an altitude of 1430-2100 m. There are 52 ski runs served by 22 lifts: 6 black, 22 red, 13 blue and 11 green and 24 kilometres of cross-country trails as well as 12 kilometres for snow-shoeing. There is also go-karting on ice for the kids! Driving 1.5 hours towards Italy takes you to the ski areas within the Mercantour National Park. These are Auron Tel: +33 (0) 4 93 23 02 66), Saint-Etienne de Tinée (Tel: +33 (0)4 93 02 41 96) and Saint-Dalmas le Selvage (Tel: +33 (0)4 93 02 46 40).

Other Amenities

  • Because 'La Plantade' contains very good quality antique furniture it is generally not advisable to bring small children. The layout of the house is as follows: a 2-story Main House (having a Master Bedroom & En suite Bathroom on the ground floor and 2 further Bedrooms - 1 Double & 1 Twin - sharing a Bathroom on the 1st floor) with a lower ground floor Studio containing a Kitchenette with Bathroom and Twin Beds. The latter is adjacent to the pool. The large Reception Room with open fireplace and adjoining Dining Room on the ground floor (see photograph) is surrounded by a sunny terrace and a shaded pergola where there is a dining table for 8 people and another for 4. The Kitchen is small after the Provençal fashion but serviceable with all the necessary equipment from microwave to dishwasher. Washing machine and drier are next door in the downstairs cloakroom. Typical French shutters keep out the worst of the heat in high summer but fans are provided. In winter heating is electric....moreless

Car: Recommended

Tourrettes-sur-Loup is a beautiful medieval village situated on a hilltop overlooking the blue Mediterranean and its adjacent promontories. Built as a refuge over 1200 years ago against the invasions of the Saracens it became in the 20th century a place renowned for attracting artists of all persuasions: poets, painters, musicians, sculptors, film directors and movie stars. Among these were Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Claude Lelouche (of 'A Man and a Woman' fame), and Jacques Prévert.

Today its narrow pedestrian streets contain a wealth of artistic shops. There are art galleries, textile weavers, ceramic potteries and original jewellers. Four outstanding restaurants nestle in its alleyways.

Ten minutes away is famous St. Paul-de-Vence with its innumerable art galleries and the renown Fondation Maeght, home to a vast collection of Miro's, Giacometti's, Calder's, etc.

Further afield to the south the glamour and sophistication of Nice offer exciting nightlife complete with casinos, theatres, concert halls and the opera together with high-end world-class shopping.

The excitement of Cannes and its film festival are only 35-40 minutes away while Antibes with its world-class marina - considered the biggest and best in the Mediterranean - is even closer. Its elegant centre and fascinating Picasso waterfront museum are not to be missed.

Going north you encounter the romantic 'arrière pays' where life continues in the old ways and for the daring sport enthusiast there is paragliding and even skiing in the winter at Gréolieres.

Often at Christmas time you can be sitting in your shirtsleeves in the sunshine enjoying the view to the Mediterranean while contemplating the afternoon's skiing expedition!
