Les Palmiers is a unique large villa near Biot, ideal for families or groups of friends, hidden in an oasis of palm trees and well located to explore the famous Cote d'Azur and many attractive inland towns and hilltop villages.
It has an open-plan double height living space. A mezzanine with stone balustrades overlooking the living room and a large stone corner fireplace add character and charm. The enclosed grounds are ideal for children with plenty of shade to be found under one of the many palms, which create an exotic atmosphere within the garden! There is a splendid sun terrace with stone balustrades overlooking the surrounding hills, ideal for drinks at sunset.
This family villa is close to the delightful medieval hilltop village of Biot, famous for its glass blowing industry. Several artisans welcome visitors to watch them at work. There are various watersports available on the coast, just 3 miles away, and many children' s attractions such as Marineland, Aquasplash, a butterfly museum and children' s farm nearby.
The first thing you will notice about this villa is the mature palm trees, and it has to be said that they are stunning, and provide some much welcome shade in the heat of the summer! You're only a mile from the pretty, medieval village of Biot here. For a typical Provençal meal, I like “Le Jarrier”, but there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.
Local places worth a visit are the Fernand Léger Museum, the History of Porcelain Museum, and a very unusual 3000m² Bonsai museum, where Bonsai trees from all over the world are on display. Glassblowing is still an important local industry and you will find many unique pieces on sale in Biot, if you want to buy souvenirs or gifts.
