Grande Vue is a luxury villa near Grasse that sits on a hilltop just outside the quaint village of Speracedes with commanding views across Lac de St Cassien, the Bay of Mandelieu, and the Esterel hills. With thick stone walls and a beautiful, spacious, modern interior, this is a cool, comfortable house in a stunning location.
It is just a short walk into Speracedes, a delightful village with a restaurant, cafe/bar, bakers, butchers, grocery shop, post office and olive mill. Nearby Cabris has a wider selection of lovely restaurants and shops and magnificent views from the village look-out point. Or the larger town of Grasse is only a short distance from this luxury villa.
There are many watersports available on Lac de St Cassien, and the chic towns of Cannes, Antibes, Nice, Monaco and St Tropez with their numerous beaches would all make excellent day trips.
Less than five miles from Grasse you will find yourself in the small Provençal village of Speracèdes. It is very enjoyable to be able to simply pop out in the morning to pick up your fresh baguette for breakfast, and to stop off for a coffee and a chat with the locals. Just up the road is the lovely village of Cabris: perched on a high promontory, it offers panoramic views and on a clear day, early in the morning, it’s possible to see as far as Corsica! There are four excellent restaurants in Cabris: I suggest visiting them all, and simply wish you “Bon Appétit”!

The villa was as advertized and suited all ages; great pool. Unfortunately the previous tenants had done some damage which was evident when we arrived.
