Set on a hillside in a leafy residential area above the town of Grasse, this Belle Epoque town villa offers absolutely spectacular southerly views across the hills to the Bay of Mandelieu and the Iles de Lerins. A short stroll away are the town’s amenities; boulangeries, cafes, boutiques and restaurants specialising in delicious regional dishes accompanied by renowned local wines.
This property is spacious and cheerful, simply furnished and decorated to retain the traditional Belle Epoque atmosphere. Facing south for all-day sunshine, the piece-de-resistance here must be the ample outdoor living space, ideal for social gatherings around the barbecue on the terrace or by the lovely infinity pool enjoying the splendid, relaxing vista. A variety of colourful, scented plants populate the villa’s terraced grounds, including jasmine, oleanders, bougainvillea, palm and olive trees, providing the perfect setting in which to unwind. All this just a short stroll away from Grasse, France’s perfume capital.
The Cote d’Azur’s most famous destinations are all within easy drive from L’Amphore. In fact, you can spend a day on the beach in Mandelieu-la-Napoule or Theoule-sur-Mer and have lunch on the shore, alternatively you could browse the weekly markets in Valbonne, Cabris or Tourrettes-sur-Loup followed by some interesting sightseeing in St Paul de Vence, Eze or St Jean-Cap-Ferrat, visiting the magnificent Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild with its lush gardens. If travelling with children, your itinerary may include Marineland theme park in Antibes, whilst other members of your party may prefer the boutiques or the glamorous nightlife in Cannes or Monte Carlo, all within easy reach.
The situation of this villa is absolutely fantastic; fully south facing pool in a highly sought after residential area of Grasse from which you can easily walk to the town centre for shops, restaurants and all the amenities. You will enjoy walking to the local boulangerie to buy some croissants and baguettes for your morning breakfast. In a few minutes you can also reach Place aux Aires for a nice lunch or evening meal in one of the restaurants.
