Overview

Recommended Pool

Palmes d'Or is a modern, welcoming gem nestled in the marvellous hills around Grasse, a short drive from the vibrant coastal cities of the French Riviera.

This lovely villa accommodates up to 6 people, perfectly blending traditional and contemporary design with the surrounding landscape.

A cute fishpond and an abundance of flowers, oaks, palm and olive trees feature in the well-kept terraced gardens which fully enclose the grounds offering privacy and a truly idyllic atmosphere.

Take a dip in the huge heated swimming pool with waterfall feature, then dry off on one of the comfortable poolside sun loungers. Enjoy al fresco meals at the pool house, which has a barbecue area, and marvel at the breath-taking views.

Lovingly decorated with gorgeous touches everywhere the exposed beams, large windows and welcoming rooms will put you in a cheerful, holiday mood from the minute you step in.

Location

About the surrounding area of Palmes D'Or
Rural Location Walking/Hiking Paths Outstanding Landscapes
Loading map

Grasse is the perfume centre of France surrounded by rose, violet and jasmine fields, and filled with historic buildings, including the beautiful Notredame du Puy cathedral which hosts three paintings by Rubens.

Le Palmes d'Or is set in the hills of Grasse in The City of Orange Trees, Le Bar-sur-loup. A gorgeous medieval village, Le Bar-sur-loup has stunning 13th-century architecture, narrow cobbled streets, and amazing views over the Loupe valley. The surrounding countryside is simply unbelievable: rugged mountains, with plenty of opportunities for hiking – taking the journey up to the Sarrée plateau offers even better views and is highly recommended.

Just 3km down the road you will stumble across the Gorges du Loup with its incredible cascades, deep pools and (for the thrill-seeker) some high jumps!

The hilltop medieval commune of Chateuneuf-Grasse is only 1.7km away where you can visit the commercial district of Pre du Lac as well as the more preserved area of Le Vignal.

Cannes, with its fancy shops, luxurious hotels and restaurants and amazing sandy beaches is just 19km away. From here, you can easily reach both Nice and Antibes, two unmissable destinations on the French Riviera.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
My father built the house in 1979.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
My father built the house completely from scratch (he even carved the stones) so, the house  is not a simply house for me.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
A sad story:  A nice couple from the Netherlands came 3 times but the last time had a purpose: their daughter was in the last phase of cancer and she wanted to come back in the villa once more.
Ex Djibouti president Ali Aref was our neighbour.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?
Jasmin festival in Grasse (first Saturday of august)

Reviews

  • Absolutely wonderful location!

    Posted by Camilla on 11/10/2019

    We stayed one week in Palmes D'Or and could not be more happy about our choice.
    The house was really nice and clean when we arrived and everything was working as it should. Our youngest daughter got a nice cot with beautiful white linens and her own life jacket to use around the pool.
    The location was also perfect for us; with everything we needed close by; including a great local bakery with fresh croissants. It took us 40 minutes to drive to the beach.
    I want to add, that the house is facing the East, so the sun set early; around 3-3:30 now in late September.

  • Lovely!

    Posted by Lavinia on 22/08/2018

    Nice house, good view.

  • Nice relaxing holiday

    Posted by Moira on 31/07/2018

    The views from the villa and swimming pool are absolutely lovely - great pool overall and very relaxing. Great to have air conditioning too.
