In this welcoming villa with large private pool near Vence, flair and creativity have been employed to create a warm, inviting and stylish property. Original stone arches lead to the sumptuous master bedroom, whilst Moroccan living is the inspiration for the cosy and colourful living areas.
This traditional stone bastide also has a steam room which adds to the opulence. Stepping outdoors, the large flat lawn is ideal for children, and the spacious covered living area by the pool is perfect for summer days on the Cote d'Azur.
This villa with large private pool is set back from the Riviera coast and is close to a delightful chain of medieval hilltop villages which are steeped in history and fun to explore. For more active holidays you can choose from a whole range of water sports, as well as hiking and other outdoor pursuits, all of which are within easy reach of this lovely villa near Vence with private pool.
I love the style of this villa, an old traditional Mas (farmhouse). It has been elegantly and charmingly refurbished but the original character has been retained. Lovely garden too. The villa offers very usable accommodation: where an extended family or group of friends are holidaying together, the separate cottage offers that little extra privacy and space for two of the party. We are just five minutes from the town of Tourrettes sur Loup, famous for its production of the violets which have been used for centuries in the perfume-making processes in the nearby town of Grasse. Today the production of flowers is less important, but we can find other activities such as pottery, jewellery-making and glass blowing. In fact I am always amazed by the number of small boutiques in the town centre, and the shopkeepers always give you a hearty welcome.
