Whether you are seeking the great outdoors, archetypal hilltop villages or Côte d'Azur beaches, Maison Tintin enjoys an enviable setting close to a superb golf course and the historic town of Valbonne, within a stone’s throw from the glamour of the French Riviera.

The owners have added their own personality to this delightful holiday home which is filled with warmth and colour. There are three pretty doubles downstairs as well as a children’s bedroom whilst on a mezzanine level you will find a master bedroom with its own lovely bathroom.

The inviting living room is a comfortable space with glorious windows opening out to an al-fresco lounge, just perfect for warm summer days with a glass of Côtes de Provence as you look out over the woodland and valleys beyond.

Appreciate the serene ambience in the colourful gardens filled with lavender, oleander and agapanthuses and swim in the fantastic pool with such lovely surroundings. There is space to play around the lawns, find a quiet spot in the shade of the trees or join family and friends to dine al-fresco on the picturesque terrace. Outside, it feels like your own idyllic corner of southern France.

Golf-lovers need to drive just a few minutes up the road to reach a well-regarded 18-hole course, one of the many to be found across this region, whilst those who prefer pretty shops and charming cafes can head to Valbonne, an enchanting medieval town with the most alluring Provençal market on a Friday morning.

The shores of the Mediterranean are just 16km away with beaches and watersports as well as glitzy towns such as Antibes and Cannes close by. Or spend time exploring the beautiful landscapes of hills and olive groves, walking through forests or hiking along rivers. The perfume capital of France, Grasse, is not to be missed, nor are the flower-filled villages of Mougins and Biot.

Sample some of the region’s exquisite olive oil in Opio, dine in excellent restaurants in Cannes or kick back with a cocktail in Juan Les Pins. No matter where you find yourself, there are so many wonderful experiences across the French Riviera.

Maison Tintin is in a beautiful part of the Alpes-Maritimes, between Valbonne and Opio and just 16km from the beaches of the French Riviera.

The villa can be found in a remote yet semi-residential area of similar holiday homes, surrounded by woodland and very close to a stunning 18-hole golf course. The nearest large supermarket is just under 4km away, where you will also find other useful amenities.

The picturesque market town of Valbonne can be reached in around a 10-minute drive. It’s a charming town to explore with its grid of idyllic lanes and impressive central square, Place des Arcades, dating back to the 17th century. Valbonne is also home to the Friday morning Provençal market where you can pick up seasonal fruit and vegetables as well as other regional delicacies. There are many good restaurants and atmospheric cafes across the town as well as pretty shops selling all sorts of lovely items.  

This area is also wonderful for walking, horse-riding and mountain-biking with many trails through the nearby Valmasque forest. Stop off for a picnic by the Fontmerle lake, a serene spot for birdwatching or admire the scenery as you walk by the Brague river – keen hikers can continue as far as Biot village.

Biot (12km) is one of the many gorgeous villages to visit across the Côte d'Azur hinterland, along with flower-filled Mougins (11km) and nearby Opio (4km), known for its original olive oil mill. Pass hilly landscapes of olive groves, cypress trees and woodland as you drive through this region, often with stunning glimpses of the Mediterranean not far away. Grasse (11km) is another gem to visit with its charming historic centre and fascinating perfume heritage.

There will be plenty of opportunities to spend the day along the French Riviera with both Cagnes-sur-Mer (15km) and Cannes (16km) around half an hour away by car. The nearest beaches around Villeneuve-Loubet offer watersports and boat hire or head south of Antibes towards Juan Les Pins (20km) for some of the loveliest sandy beaches in this part of the Côte d'Azur.

Spend time in Cannes or Nice, travel as far as Monaco in under an hour or drive inland to the waterfalls and rockpools around Gourdon and beyond. The serene Lérins Islands, reached via a boat from Cannes, are another superb day out or experience the French Riviera from a yacht on a sunset cruise.
