Maison Montel is a beautiful stone bastide, recently refurbished to give a modern yet typical Provençal feel. Just a 10-mintute drive from picturesque Grasse and half an hour away from the glistening coastline, this holiday villa is ideally placed for exploring all the delights of the French Riviera.

Accommodation is split between a large main house and independent guest house. With its traditional kitchen, elegant dining room, living room and snug TV area, the big house is a real hub for everyone to gather, though the guest house also has its own kitchen, dining area and lounge. 

Built in 1895, the maison features chic and contemporary interiors with authentic touches like wooden beams, colourful tiles and stone flooring. French doors flood the indoors with light while soft furnishings and original fireplaces create a cosy environment throughout. This extends to the bastide’s eight bedrooms, some of which have their own lovely en-suite bathrooms.

Outside is a flower-filled oasis with olive trees surrounding the house and bordering the grassy lawns. Soak in the lavender scents and serene atmosphere as you swim in the pool or recline on a sun lounger. Choose from several sunny spots for enjoying your morning coffee and croissant and spend evenings dining al-fresco on the shady terrace. 

There are a supermarket and shops just a handy 5-minute drive from Maison Montel, while golf lovers will delight in the proximity of an excellent 18-hole course, just 4km away. For keen tennis players, there are courts less than 10 minutes away. 

A fabulous selection of cafés, restaurants and bars await in Grasse, the centre of which can be reached by car in 10 minutes. The perfume capital of France, its heavenly scents and gorgeous scenery will not disappoint. Nearby Valbonne, known for its food and antique markets, is also not to be missed, while Opio and Châteauneuf are lovely villages to explore.

Mougins can be reached in a 15-minute drive and boasts a rich artistic heritage as well as winding medieval streets and great cuisine. Head further inland to discover the charming town of Vence, nestled into the hinterland of Nice just 30km away.

The glitz and glamour of the French Riviera is within easy reach, just a 30-minute car journey from the house. Take a day trip to the fashionable cities of Cannes and Antibes and visit the beautiful sandy beaches that dot this stunning part of the coastline.

Maison Montel sits on the outskirts of historic Grasse with other villas dotted around and lots of useful local amenities nearby. A supermarket, shops and restaurants can be reached by car in 5 minutes while there are tennis courts and a fantastic 18-hole golf course just a 10-minute drive from the house.

With its enchanting centre and perfume-making heritage, nearby Grasse is one of the prettiest and most popular towns in the region. Just 10 minutes away, it is filled with meandering medieval streets, lovely boutiques and quality restaurants. No trip to Grasse is complete without visiting the famous perfumeries where you can browse the divine scents and even try your hand at making your own perfume.

The charming towns of Valbonne, Opio and Châteauneuf can all be reached in under 20 minutes. With its lively street markets and vibrant central square, Valbonne is full of character, while Châteauneuf enjoys sweeping views of the countryside from its hilltop perch. Opio is a pretty little village renowned for its olive oil production – be sure to pick up a bottle from the mill when visiting. 

Other nearby towns include picturesque Mougins, which is just 10km away and has a growing culinary reputation, and the walled town of Vence, which is 30km away and boasts a rich artistic heritage. Brimming with art galleries and quintessential Provençal houses, the ancient town has retained a more down-to-earth feel than some of the region’s more stylish cities. 

Chic Antibes and Cannes can be reached in half an hour and are fabulous places to spend a day out. Visit the Juan-Les-Pins marina and relax on the gorgeous sandy beaches surrounding Antibes, swimming in the azure Ligurian Sea and trying the watersport activities on offer. Stroll along the glamourous La Croisette promenade in Cannes before heading to the old port and taking a boat trip to Île Sainte-Marguerite in order to further admire the sparkling coastline of the French Riviera.
