A mere 15 minutes drive from Nice International Airport, close to and with a view to the medieval village of Saint-Paul, known for its famous restaurants and prestigious art galleries, hidden from curiosity by handhewn stone walls and a wrought-iron gate, nestled in mature Mediterranean vegetation, stands this carefully renovated, yet resolutely timeless property, on more than a hectare of gently sloping landscaped grounds, where olive, cypress and fruit trees abound.
A gravelled circular driveway with a fountain in its centre leads to the main house, built in the in the coveted Provençal masonry tradition, with rough stones and interspersed pieces of terra-cotta, a triple Genova-style roof laying, and thick walls, helping keep the house at the right temperature year-round. The interior has been perfectly updated to reflect the owner's passion for authenticity and charm, and ancient Burgundy church flagstones, white-washed roof beams and doors, along with an exquisitely decorated interior - all come together to create a most seducing home.
The indoors and the outdoors eminently blend together in the lovely terrace dining area, complete with barbecue and oven.
A surprising stone viaduct connects the main house to the guest cottage, of comparable charm and finish, and completely independent.
Finally, the pool area, set amidst lush greenery, an oasis of tranquillity, boasts a generous scintillating heated swimming pool with iridescent azure and indigo glass mosaic tiles, a cascade, a Jacuzzi and pool house with a most comfortable lounge area - the ultimate refuge.
A property where distinction meets tradition and where friends and family can enjoy each other's company in a magical, genuine setting.
