The Neighbourhood

Saint Francois is a small village nestled in the hills overlooking the 'Vallee Verte', 5 mins West of Grasse (world capital of perfume). Grasse is situated on the border of the Côte d'Azur and Provence. Nice Airport (40 min), Cannes (25 min), Monte Carlo (1hr), or in the winter months the skiing is less than an hour’s drive!

'Mas Peonie is well situated for the highlights of the Cote d'Azur & the French Riviera. There are fabulous restaurants offering fine dining with the 5 star hotel restaurant La Bastide Saint-Antoine (5 mins), the beautiful L'Auberge du Vieux Château on the hill top village of nearby Cabris( 5mins), not forgetting the many fabulous restaurants in Mougins (15 mins).

There are plenty of old provencal villages, where famous Artists have trodden before such as St. Paul de Vence, Beaulieu-sur-mer, Villefrance, and Eze, all within easy reach.

Many respected golf clubs within 30 mins:

Golf Country Club de Saint-Donat

Golf de Biot

Royal Mougins Golf Club

Terre Blanche Four Seasons Resort.

Lac St Cassien is a must see, for a refreshing swim in the fresh water lake (20 mins). See Monaco (1hr) and Nice by car or take the train from Grasse and enjoy a scenic journey along the coast. Try reaching St Tropez by ferry from Ste. Maxime – it misses out on the worst of the traffic, and you get a great view of the town as you approach it from the sea, just a 15 minute trip.

The spectacular Verdon Gorges are a 2-hour drive away. A magnificent canyon with gigantic cliffs of calcareous rock, you can enjoy the Azur fresh water lakes, or for the more adventurous do some white water rafting in the intertwining rivers.

A TRULY SOUTH OF FRANCE EXPERIENCE

5 out of 5

Right as we drove into the property we became mesmerized by the beauty of its location and its stunning view. Entering into this home with all the comforts of a top class hotel we felt at home instantly. I so enjoyed using a modernized provencal kitchen whilst getting glimpses of the view outside the kitchen romantic really.

AMAZING STAY IN AN UNFORGETTABLE VILLA

5 out of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The property is even more lovely then the pictures. We went as two couples but immediately remarked that we could have brought our children and still had lots of space. It is very relaxed with several different places to spend time if you are a group and would like a quiet moment. The covered deck is wonderful and we had our coffee every morning and our dinner at night, if we stayed in, enjoying the view. The pool is like a resort pool but very private. Neighbors can not see you. It has comfortable chairs and cushioned couches so we enjoyed reading and brought appetizers and drinks down in the late afternoon. The bedrooms we used were very comfortable and spacious as were the bathrooms. We are from Canada and used to a lot of space so for us this was wonderful, as often hotel accommodation is very small in Europe. It was very quiet at night and relaxing. Good restaurants and activities were very close and we spent most days doing a little exploring of nearby villages as well as time in Nice, Cannes and St Tropez. Our stay seemed very short as there is so much to do in the area and we also just enjoyed spending time at the house enjoying the company of our friends in such a beautiful atmosphere. It was one of the most memorable trips we have had and definitely the nicest house we have ever stayed in. I find hotels noisy and cramped and would always prefer to stay in a villa where possible. It was impeccably maintained and a manager met us and answered all our questions. I contacted her during our stay and she responded immediately to our requests. I can not say enough good things about this villa. Stay as long as you can here, as you will not ever be bored and will leave wanting more.

BEAUTIFUL VILLA IN STUNNING LOCATION

5 out of 5

Mas Peonie was, by unanimous agreement, the most beautiful, spacious and well equipped villa that we had ever stayed in. It was obvious that the villa had been kitted out as someone's home, for everything you could need was there. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated (felt like a 5 star hotel) and the grounds were well kept and vast. We rented the villa for a family holiday (ages 10 to 82) and everyone loved it. The villa has stunning views and is very peaceful, but nothing in walking distance so car needed (but great for peace and quiet). Grasse and surrounding areas were nice and there is plenty to do just a short drive away. Highly recommend for a luxury stay. We would certainly return!

THE PERFECT GETAWAY

5 out of 5

Our boys still reminisce about our one week vacation at this beautifully renovated old stone house in the south of France with its gorgeous views, gardens and private pool. Oh what a week we had there. The view from the terrace in the morning is unbelievably relaxing. The house is wonderfully decorated and comfortable. We were removed from all distractions yet we could drive less than an hour to get to Nice, Monaco and Antibes, which we truly enjoyed. A day trip to Saint Remo was a treat as well. The spacious house is inviting, clean, and just absolutely beautiful all around. We are already talking about returning as soon as we can!

DETOX FROM THE BIG SMOKE!

5 out of 5

Having arrived from Dubai, a newly built city full of dust and concrete, I was like a small child in a sweet shop drooling over the lushness, the greenery and floral scents in the air. I lost hours of time relaxing on the balcony finding something new to look at each day across the valley. A combination of the best cotton sheets, fresh fresh air and wholesome 'rustic' produce from the local vendors had me catching up on some much needed beauty sleep! The location was ideal and the Villa was immaculate. The owner was more than accommodating and flexible and I just loved the sense of class and style within the Villa. It was warm, inviting and I cannot wait to rebook with all my family from Australia. I loved the French carboots, trip to Ventimiglia in Italy, strolls through the adjoining towns and how close it was to Nice airport. Highly recommended for families and friends wanting to connect in a magical 'wholesome' environment.

About Nicole Bekdache

Welcome to Mas Peonie, the home of my dreams! I am the mama to 5 gorgeous fast growing people and have been lucky enough to have lived all over the world. Although Mas Peonie is at the moment a holiday home for us whilst we are based in London, it was our base for the past 4 years and as such is fully equipped.

Nicole Bekdache purchased this villa in 2008

Why Nicole Bekdache chose France

We fell in love with the house and bought it in 2008 thinking it would be our retirement home of the future but moved there soon after. I spent the next four years renovating this old stone cottage, blogging, laughing at my terrible french and enjoying the good life, I am truly thrilled with the results as I hope you will be. It is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend or a family reunion. Although it is a big house, it always feels homey. There are five garden terraces below the house leading to the swimming pool and an extensive plot in front of the house full of olive trees.

We love exploring the beautiful old villages, Grasse being the perfume capital of the world and also a great stop off for gifts and to spoil ourselves! We love walking in the pine forests, going to lake St Cassien , skiing and of course visiting the must see areas of the French Riviera; Cannes, St Tropez, Monaco, St Remo and all the other gorgeous places but secretly my favourite pastime, the one I love most of all are the flea markets!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is managed by an amazing woman, Tracy, who will be there to meet and greet you but more importantly, if you have any special requirements eg; food hamper, chef, limousine service and so much more, just ask. She is fluent in French and English and as a local she can tell you what's on in the area.
