Property description

Designed by a student of le Corbusier, this villa combines Provencal charm (stuccoed walls and tile roofs) with an open modern plan, all arranged on a few levels (the main floor is on three levels, so the elderly and the very young will want supervision) with a full pool and spectacular view of the Mediterranean You can see a panorama extending from The hills of Monte Carlo to Corsica (on a clear day) to Cannes, all while lounging by the pool beside fruit trees, and sipping on the local Vin du Var.

We are in a nature district, so great hikes up mountain streams or along the foothills of the Maritime Alpes are nearby. Vence, a charming hill town is 5 minutes away, with cafes, restaurants and shopping, and St. Paul de Vence, with its famous galleries, museum and boule court, is 10 minutes. Haute cuisine restaurants, including the well-resepcted Chateau St. Martin, from modest to extravagant, are peppered throughout the neighborhood, and both Nice and Cannes, with their famous promenades, hotels, museums, beaches and shopping are 20-30 minute drives.

This is our family home, which my parents purchased after traveling to the Cote d'Azur for thirty years and searching for the perfect perch above the sea. It possesses charms for young and old, loungers and sightseers, athletes and intellectuals, connoisseurs and folks who just want to chill. It is not luxurious, but it is comfortable, serene and tasteful. It is the most relaxing place I know.

Location

Car: Recommended

Close to some of the Best Restaurants, Beaches, Museums, Water Sports and Galleries in the World.

We are in a nature district, so great hikes up mountain streams or along the foothills of the Maritime Alps are nearby. Vence, a charming hill town is 5 minutes away, with cafés, restaurants and shopping. St. Paul de Vence, with its famous galleries, museum and boule court, is 10 minutes away. Haute cuisine restaurants, including the Chateau St. Martin, are peppered throughout the neighborhood, and both Nice and Cannes, with their famous promenades, hotels, museums, beaches and shopping are 20-30 minute drives.

Enjoy both St. Paul de Vence and the town of Vence itself. St. Paul is a classic hilltop village that was rediscovered by artists in the 1960s. It’s fun to stroll the steep cobblestone streets and visit the art shops and boutiques. There is a lovely church and panoramic view at the top of the town. St. Paul musts: Le Colombe d’Or restaurant, famous for its crudités and artwork; The Fondation Maeght, a beautiful museum designed by José Luis Sert with wonderful Giacomettis, Miros, a sculpture garden and stimulating traveling exhibits; watching boule while sitting at the Café de la Place.

Vence is an unpretentious town with great pizzerias (recommended: Le Clemenceau across from the Mairie) and a museum with visiting exhibits. Sit at the cafés with a Herald Tribune and Café Latté and watch the world go by. Be sure to fill up you water bottles with the water from the Foux at the fountain as you enter the old town. Just past the fountain, turn right up the Rue de Marché and shop the boutique food stores for fantastic bread, cheese, vegetables and meats. Have pizza at the Clemenceau at night and let the kids, if they are of an age to, run around the main square of the old town.

Other recommended activities: Dinner at the 2 star Chateau St. Martin; hiking the trails off of the Route de Coursegoules (just past the Chateau) that will take you up to the Baous de Noir and Blanc, the cliffs behind our house; the trail to the source of the Riou River (walk up a beautiful stream to clear mountain pools between steep cliffs); the old town of Nice on market days; the Matisse chapel, Matisse and Chagall museums; the fireworks in Cannes; beaches on Cap d’Antibes. Scenic drives through gorgeous gorges and hilltowns. There is a great deal more, but that’s a start.
