Gaze out towards the Bay of Cannes from your upper terrace at this elegant farmhouse close to one of the region’s most idyllic perched villages. With protected forest on one side and exclusive neighbours dotted beyond your vast and private grounds, Le Petit Prince offers an abundance of beauty and character alongside ample modern comforts.

There is such an enchanting ambience throughout this 5-bedroom villa which has been designated as a ‘site remarquable’. The graceful lounge is so spacious with historic books and antique pieces whilst French doors open to the upper terrace for the most glorious views as far as the Mediterranean. Downstairs, the wood-beamed dining room juxtaposes perfectly with the contemporary kitchen and the exquisite floor tiles remind you of this home’s fine heritage. The covered patio is a gorgeous spot for al-fresco dining beautifully lit up in the evening with modern spotlights.

Five traditional bedrooms are on the upper two floors, each one with plush beds and air-conditioning alongside original fireplaces and picture-perfect garden or valley vistas. On the first floor, doors also lead to the decked courtyard, such a peaceful corner for reading or sipping wine by the ancient olive trees and blue-shuttered windows.

Wander down to the pool and inviting terrace for the most splendid vistas of Côte d'Azur hills, forests, valleys and coastline – this is also the perfect place to watch the sunset as the night draws in. A restored stone mazet serves as a delightful bar close to the pool, set amongst the shady trees and deckchairs. Beyond the landscaped gardens, discover four acres of wild grounds and protected forests, an absolute paradise for nature lovers or guests who simply wish to get away from it all.

There are village views from your garden – you can reach it in around 3km (keen hikers could walk up to the perched village or it’s a short drive). It’s such a picturesque place with flower-filled lanes, café terraces, restaurants and tremendous views that have inspired artists over the years. In the other direction, the market town of Grasse is only 7km away, famed for its rich perfume heritage and charming ambience.

As well as visiting idyllic hilltop villages, atmospheric markets and making the most of gastronomic restaurants found across the hinterland, the sandy shores of the French Riviera are around half an hour away with Cannes, Antibes and Juan-Les-Pins all waiting to be explored.

Slightly closer to home, follow walking trails, enjoy lakeside picnics or seek out summer watersports at Lac de Saint-Cassien or simply play a round of golf in stunning surroundings with some of the French Riviera’s most prestigious courses within easy reach.

For a group of friends or families holidaying at the same time, the owner's other house Villa De La Magie (12-14 guests) is around a 4-minute walk away.

In the Alpes-Maritimes department of the gorgeous Côte d'Azur hinterland and with views down towards the Bay of Cannes, Le Petit Prince is 3km from a picture-perfect French village and only half an hour from the beaches of the French Riviera.

On a terraced hillside above a country road, the villa is set in four acres of beautiful grounds with no direct houses overlooking you, exclusive neighbours nearby and protected forest on one side. The views down to the valley and Mediterranean are glorious.

The local village is further up the hill around 3km away (the keenest of walkers could hike up the hill in around 40 minutes). It’s such a lovely place with charming flower-filled lanes, pretty café terraces, a handful of well-regarded restaurants and yet more stunning vistas of the surrounding landscapes. Visit artisan craft studios and be inspired by the village’s beauty just like so many artists have been over the years.

Follow walking trails close to the villa, ramble along nearby canals or drive to the Tanneron forest and Lac de Saint-Cassien, just over 12km away, for marked paths and a range of outdoor activities including summer watersports and lakeside beaches. There are ample cycling opportunities across this area as well as horse-riding and several prestigious golf clubs especially close to Mougins.

You are never too far away from the French Riviera with Cannes and its palm-fringed shores and harbour only 20km away. The old town of Antibes (30km) is such an atmospheric place to visit with its historic centre, Picasso museum and impressive marina whilst Cap d’Antibes is home to idyllic bays and incredible coastal walks. The chic seaside resort of Juan-Les-Pins (30km) is another popular spot for sandy beaches, beachside restaurants, watersports and boat trips or head further along the coast towards Nice (42km), Villefranche-sur-Mer (52km) or even Monaco, just over an hour away.

Closer to home, Grasse can be reached in 7km, a charming town known for its perfume heritage – visit the Musée International de la Parfumerie, then tour perfume studios and factories including famous names such as Fragonard and Galimard. Soak up the ambience in Grasse’s delightful cafes and restaurants, pick up all sorts of local produce and flowers at the market and admire the wonderful Cathedrale-Notre-Dame-du-Puy.

Don’t miss the Friday morning market in Valbonne (15km), gaze at the views from the picturesque village of Biot (30km) and follow Picasso’s footsteps in artistic Mougins (14km), also known for its fine gastronomy.

Spend time visiting other breathtaking perched villages such as Spéracèdes (4km), Fayence (22km) and Callian (20km) and enjoy lunch out in Seillans, one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ around 29km away and appreciate the landscapes of olive groves, cypress trees and oak forests as you catch glimpses of the Bay of Cannes beyond the panoramic hills and valley.
