Book Now & Grow Green: 3 Trees Planted with Every Booking!

This Earth Day, join our mission to plant 3 trees for every booking made between April 22nd - 28th, 2024. Let's make a sustainable impact together! Learn more about our journey here >>

What will be your favourite corner of this vast Mediterranean garden – the outdoor lounge by the olive trees, the lavender field, the wisteria-clad archways or the lazy hammocks beneath the century-old trees? Not to mention the football goals, sandpit and play area for the children, and the swimming pool of course!

Then there’s the Loup River just beyond Fantaisie Française’s gates, an idyllic spot for nature watching and picnics. This beautiful house and its one-hectare garden is in the Côte d’Azur hinterland between Grasse and the picture-perfect perched village of Tourrettes-sur-Loup.

Fantaisie Française has been lovingly restored over the past years – the owners have created an authentic and welcoming family home for up to 16 guests across the main house and a garden annexe. The lounge and dining area are gorgeous with a fire for cooler months whilst the newly renovated kitchen-diner is modern yet elegant. The main house is home to six bedrooms, our favourite being the master bedroom on the first floor with a private terrace and a romantic bath with the most beautiful view!

A garden annexe houses another two bedrooms alongside a living-dining area and kitchenette, ideal perhaps for a small family seeking a little independence or accompanying grandparents.

When not dining al-fresco on the terrace or sipping Côte de Provence overlooking the garden, head out to local villages and towns to truly soak up the charming ambience of this part of southern France. From Grasse’s flower market and Tourrettes-sur-Loup’s flower-filled medieval lanes to Mougin’s gastronomic restaurants and Cannes’ palm fringed shores, there is so much to experience nearby.

Meanwhile, the most adventurous can hike through the Gorges du Loup, admire stunning waterfalls, try canyoning and aquatic hiking or find pretty spots for swimming. Return to your riverside French abode to relax with a coffee as you listen out for cicadas and the flowing river beyond.

Following a track by the Loup River, you will soon reach the gates of Fantaisie Française, set in vast grounds (one hectare). How wonderful to have the river so close – this is such a beautiful, natural setting.

It feels rural yet not too remote with some neighbouring houses, less than a 3km drive to the tiny village of Le Bar sur Loup. There are further amenities and a little weekly market in and around Châteauneuf including a Casino supermarket (6.5km).

The heart of Tourrettes-sur-Loup (7km) is in the other direction with magnificent views of the surrounding landscapes from its perched setting. The fortified village dates back to the 15th century and it is a joy to explore its characterful narrow lanes with stone houses, vaulted archways, little art studios, flower-filled squares and charming restaurants. Like many villages in this area, it has attracted several artists and writers over the years and it is also known for its violet flower production (visit La Bastide aux Violettes to learn more).

Continue on to artistic Vence (13km) and St Paul de Vence (16km), both renowned for their charm, beauty, art heritage and breathtaking French Riviera views. The independent art gallery, Fondation Maeght, and Matisse’s Chapelle du Rosaire are not to missed by art-lovers.

The French Riviera coastline is also within easy reach whether you venture towards the charming old town of Antibes (26km), the beachside restaurants of Juan-les-Pins (27km), the coastal walking trails of Cap d’Antibes (30km) or the glorious beaches and attractions of Cannes (24km).

Nice (30km) is another grand day out with its museums, galleries, markets and atmospheric city beach and promenade or drive in the opposite direction towards the idyllic coves, beachside restaurants and stunning walk trails around Théoule-sur-Mer (36km) backed by the dramatic Esterel Massif. Perhaps stop off for lunch in a gastronomic restaurant in Mougins (17km) en route or experience the vibrant Friday morning market in historic Valbonne (11km), both further highlights of this fantastic region.

Region

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Such a fantastic garden for families! Within the vast grounds children will love playing in the sandpit, making the most of the play area and scoring in the football goals. Beyond the gates are the banks of river, an idyllic spot for skimming stones and nature watching.

Of course there is plenty to keep families entertained across the French Riviera and its hinterland from horse-riding and long walks to more challenging hikes and cycle rides. Discover the tree-top adventure centre (Riviera Nature) and paintballing just outside Grasse alongside all sorts of fun activities at Le Bois des Lutins and Le Village des Fous en route to Villeneuve-Loubet.

Not forgetting the glorious beaches of the Cote d’Azur around Cannes, Juan-les-Pins and beyond. Look out for a range of seasonal watersports, boat excursions and other activities such as beach volleyball, charming carrousels, playgrounds and more.

There are even more family attractions just north of Antibes with Aquasplash, Adventure Golf, Marineland and Antibes Land Park just over half an hour away.
