Just outside the pretty village of Valbonne, 15km from the beaches of Cannes and Antibes, stands this magnificent house of character, on an amazing piece of land of 3 hectares which includes 1100 olive trees over 100 years old.
The garden opens onto a private wood of 17 hectares, which leads straight to the villages of Valbonne (7 minutes walk) and Opio.
The interiors have been totally refurbished with elegant taste and style, large volumes, high ceilings, stone floors and tall French windows. There is an original contrast in the interior deco. Some of the rooms have kept a “Belle Epoque” style which will transport you in a “Château atmosphere” while the bathrooms have been decorated in a modern style.
The level of equipment is very good: all bedrooms have en-suite facilities, the TV room is equipped with a cinema screen and video-projector, and there is an office with Internet fast access connection.
The property is great for children: they will enjoy their own swimming pool and take full advantage of the huge flat lawn garden which includes some swings, a ping-pong table and a sandpit.
If you wish to be completely out of your element, this is the place!
