CHARMING 200 YEAR OLD STONE SHEPHERDS COTTAGE, ESTERON RIVER VALLEY, NEAR NICE

Pierrefeu Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2-3 persons

La Bergerie is located in the Quartier du Planet in the village of Pierrefeu at an altitude of approx 550meters, at a distance of 45 km from Nice airport, and 40 km from Exit 52 on Autoroute A8.

Pierrefeu in the Alpes Maritimes on Rte D17, is in the heart of the beautiful Esteron River Valley, surrounded by 1500 meter mountains.

This 200+ year old building was originally used for sheltering animals and shepherds many years gone by;

now beautifully renovated it has a large lovely ground floor sitting room with kitchen and bathroom. Set in the midst of olive groves, it is a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. It is within walking/hiking distance to Vieux Pierrefeu, a perched village. If you love walking and hiking there are many footpaths that can take you to many of the nearby villages and down to the river.

The valley offers interesting hiking, and safe bathing in the river pools, as well as sightseeing and dining in its many ancient rural villages.

Small grocers, bakers and butchers shops are located in the villages of Gilette and Roquesteron (15 mins) and a large Carrefour supermarket is conveniently positioned at Lingostiere (35 mins), on RN 202.

From this quiet, undiscovered rural paradise, the beaches and 'night spots' of Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Monte-Carlo and Juan-les-Pins can be reached within an hour.

The Italian border is an easy one hour drive, and the street market at Ventimiglia, every Friday, is a worthwhile excursion.

We were not disappointed. Very well supplied and maintained. Hosts were gracious and very helpful. Very tranquil and also great for day trips to the Côte d'Azure. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks stay and highly recommend it to people who enjoy the mountains and great views.

An Idyllic Rustic Cottage

The cottage is as described in the listing description and clean and tidy on arrival. The owner lives opposite and was very helpful and friendly in case of questions. The location is very peaceful with no passing traffic and is situated up a steep winding road that leads you up to from the new village of Pierrefeu. I would recommend this property to couples looking for a romantic get-away as it is a perfect size for two people. There are many beautiful hill top villages near by, my particular favorite was Gillette with a thriving community and restaurants, tourist office etc etc

Nice is a short 30 minute drive away and close to the cottage are opportunities to go to the river that runs through the valley. There are also plenty of walking routes in the area too.
