About the villa

A beautiful villa, perched on a hilltop outside the medieval village of La Gaude. The house enjoys a stunning view over the surrounding mountains and valleys in the Vence region. In the other direction, you can see the Mediterranean glittering between the lush green trees. The house is surrounded by beautiful trees, bushes and plants where you can pick your own lemons, oranges, pears, figs and almonds direct from the tree. Through the wrought iron gates a beautiful pool awaits. Beside the pool is located a summer kitchen complete with pizza oven, BBQ and sun loungers.

The house is furnished with luxury and style in mind. The house contains many typical provincial features including ceiling beams, exposed stone and beautiful tiled floors. The huge fireplace is a centre point in the living-room. Through the large patio doors is a large terrace complete with Moroccan mosaic table covered by a luscious vine. There are four bedrooms, all sleeping two persons and 2 large bathrooms.
