Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids

The charming Villa en Bois is ideally located in the countryside in a tranquil residential area surrounding a lovely village, not far from the famous perfume town of Grasse. If you and your family are looking for a relaxing getaway in a lovely location but don’t want to be restricted with access to interesting villages and main towns, then Villa en Bois is the place for you.

This is a comfortable and spacious family home with an open-plan layout, furnished in a blend of traditional French country and Oriental styles, including a conservatory style entrance with an almost tropical feel! Outdoors, an abundance of pot plants extends the homely atmosphere. A lovely sun terrace with comfortable outdoor living area is the ideal spot to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, whilst the covered terrace running the length of the villa helps to keep it cool inside. 

Kids will love the flat lawn surrounding the swimming pool, as well as the swings and table tennis on the lower garden level.

It’s just a five-minute drive to the local village where you will find a supermarket and a couple of restaurants.

This villa is in an ideal location for exploring some of the idyllic villages and towns of this part of the French Riviera. Grasse (4km) is less than ten minutes away by car where you can explore the world’s perfume capital with its museums, factories and perfume shops before exploring the historic and charming old town with narrow winding streets and pretty squares with fountains. When dining out, try delicious Fassoum, a local speciality of fried courgette flowers.

Again, just a ten-minute drive away, is the charming town of Valbonne (6km) with its fine architecture, beautifully restored village houses covered in bougainvillea and a wealth of restaurants with tables spilling out into the narrow lanes or squares. 

There is an array of wonderful markets (food and/or flea markets) in this region such as Grasse (Wednesday and Thursday), Valbonne (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday), Mouans Sartoux (6km, Tuesday and Thursday), Peymeinade (11km, Monday) and into the mountains in Saint-Vallier-de-Thiey (18km, Sunday).

Within 20 minutes you could be on a beach in Cannes (15km) or exploring the glorious beaches of French Riviera in Antibes (20km) or Juan-Les-Pins (19km). Children will love the waterpark at Aquasplash (18km) just north of Antibes whilst there is a host of activities across the region such as prestigious golf courses, horse-riding, beautiful walking and cycling trails across the countryside and mountains and of course numerous water sports and boat rides along the coast. 

If you want to escape the summer crowds, take a ferry from Cannes across to the beautiful Iles de Lerons, two pretty islands where you can take a picnic and find a rocky cove backed by pine and eucalyptus trees.

Back to gastronomy, food lovers don’t miss the medieval hilltop village of Mougins (10km), famous for its restaurants and art galleries, hosting the Festival of Gastronomy every year. Whether you are looking for fine dining or authentic French cuisine, you will find a great choice of excellent restaurants in and around Mougins. This is where Pablo Picasso lived for the last decade of his life until 1973. The Mougins Museum of Classical Art is one of many art galleries and studios that are well visited by tourists in the area.
