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 gated drive. 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, France:
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 overlooks a conservation area and is on the edge of the beautiful historic village of La Colle Sur Loup.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, cooking alfresco on the range 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. We have a wonderful team who look after our guests. Our House manager who speaks several languages including English is on hand should you need advice for restaurants or information on the local area.Our gardener, pool guy and house keeper keep everything ship shape. When you rent our property you will know that if anything unexpected goes wrong, our support team will be there to fix it as soon as possible. Please read some of our previous guest reviews.
