Located in the lower foothills of the Southern Alps, Magagnosc is a picturesque Provencal village 5 minutes from the ancient town of Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. It is an excellent base from which to explore the Côte d'Azur and is just 30 minutes from the coast and popular destinations such as Cannes, Antibes, Juan les Pins and Nice. Provencal villages with fine restaurants such as Valbonne and Mougins are only 15 minutes drive away. Hilltop villages such as Gourdon, Bar sur Loup and Fayence are all nearby. There are many scenic walks in the Gorge du Loup and the mountains behind the villa, one of which is the GR51 (Balcons de la Cote d'Azur). Lac St Cassien and the Gorge provide excellent (and less crowded!) alternative swimming options to the coast. There are also 5 main ski stations in a 1-2 hour drive away. Road access is excellent and there is a regular bus service at the bottom of the road to Nice town, airport, Cannes and Grasse.

Other Activities: Canyoning, Go Karting, Paint balling,rock pool swimming

Golf: There are 5 golf courses all within 15/20 mins of the villa one of which is the PGA championship course at Mougins. The other courses are situated in Grasse,Valbonne,Mouans Sartoux,Opio,and a second course in Mougins.

Ski: Greoliere les Neiges the nearest ski station 40 mins away offers excellent beginners and intermediate skiing.The 2 largest ski stations in the area at Foux D'Allos,and Isola 2000 are about 2 hours drive away. Foux D'Allos has the longest ski runs in southern Europe.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: As a surveyor I always wanted to build a striking modern timber highly insulated ecological villa and we had this opportunity in 2010 incorporating many ideas such as heat exchangers which provide low cost heating in the Winter and air conditioning in the Summer,as well as hot water,and a rain water recuperation underground tank. We have known this area for over 20 years and we were lucky enough to find this stunning hillside location which has panoramic views from all the rooms from Cap D'Antibes to the bay of Cannes. We wanted to create a villa that gives our holidaymakers an exceptional experience which is in a bit of paradise between heaven and earth.Our recent reviews show we have been successful in achieving this.

Why the Owner Chose Magagnosc, Grasse, France:
We have had experiences of staying in holiday villas which were tired,poorly furnished and we were determined to create a high quality villa and furnishings but at the same time offering good value for money.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Whether you like country or town ,quiet or busy the location offers you both with the lower Alps behind us offering fantastic walks,hilltop villages,country markets,and amazing views.The alternative is avaible as within 30 minutes you have the whole of the Cote D'Azure coast to play with from Italian influenced Menton known for its citrus fruits,glitzy Monaco,cosmopolitan Nice,Old Antibes with market and busy port,fun loving Juan les Pins,and buzzing Cannes famous for the film festival.
