Arc en Ciel is a wonderful 130 m2 village house, which will charm and delight you! Situated off a pretty little, leafy pathway – the house is tucked behind an old wooden door. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 spacious living areas and 3 sunny south facing terraces - all with full sea views!
On the entry level lies the main bedroom with queen sized bed (160x200), which is large and has its own bathroom with walk-in shower, fireplace and reasonable sized south facing terrace overlooking the sea from where you can sit and watch the world go by.
Descending to the lower level there is a spacious living room with fireplace, a large t.v, plenty of comfortable seating space and an open plan kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, oven, 4 ring hob and kettle. There is a sofa bed which can comfortably sleep one person. The breakfast bar allows you to enjoy the company of others whilst preparing meals. There is a w.c off this room, as well as a glass door opening onto a very sweet terrace dripping in Mediterranean plants and trees. There is a table suitable for outside dining, as well as a gas BBQ (guests are required to purchase their own gas cylinder) - the area is private yet enjoys a lovely view of the coastline.
On the upper floor you can find a sitting room bursting with light from plenty of windows and a door opening onto the upper terrace giving this room a very special atmosphere. There is a round dining table and attractive furniture and paintings adding a wonderful contemporary mix to this medieval village house. A bathroom with bath lies off the sitting room, plus a bright, little kitchen with an unexpected amount of windows, a fridge, dishwasher and oven with 2 ring hob.
The terrace boasts an impressive view of the Mediterranean sea from above, again this offers you the opportunity to eat outside with a large dining table. A deep pink bougainvillea climbs the iron railings making this the most perfect setting.
There is a second bedroom at mezzanine level above the sitting room with a double bed (140x190) and writing desk. There are material blinds which can be rolled down to give this room more privacy.
Fans are available on all 3 floors during the warm months.
Arc en Ciel is a short stroll to a good selection of restaurants and the village's main square, which is a hive of activity during the warmer months. The town below is within easy walking distance, where you can find a boulangerie, food market, boutiques, supermarket, cafes, post office, etc. The free shuttle bus runs every 15 minutes from the town up to the village so that is also an option if you don't feel like walking.
Pets are welcome but unfortunately due to the stairs in the house, it is not suitable for small children.
Available June and August - for availability any other time please confirm with owners.
We have spend a wonderful week in this charming old house. The house has the most beautiful view over the village as well as the Mediteranian.
The house is well functioning and very charming furnished.
further the terrace and the 2 balcons where the view can be enjoyed give an extra star.
Nice hause, nice town. You are sitting at the terras and you have a nice sea view and look over the old city. Nice retaurant near the hause.
Very nice house. Really big, with a great view
We stayed for a week, six people. Lovely spacious terrasses with sun until late in the afternoon. Very nice views of the old as well as the new town and the sea. We enjoyed several of the very nice restaurants in Haut de Cagnes as well as dinners "at home" enjoying the view.
Nice having several bathrooms and two kitchens.
Ein sehr schönes Haus über 5 Etagen mit 2 Terrassen, 1 Balkon und 3 Badezimmern. Der Blick über den gesamten Ort auf die Bucht und den Flughafen einfach toll! Aber:
- sehr abgewohnt und dreckig
- alles voll gestellt mit den Sachen des Eigentümers
- für 5 Personen nie genügend warmes Wasser
- feuchter muffiger Geruch der nur über permanentes Lüften - bei 28 Grad auch kein Problem - zu beseitigen war
- unteres Schlafzimmer wenig Licht und sehr muffig wegen fehlender Lüftungsmöglichkeit
Schade, daher nur 2 Sterne!
Great location in a wonderful village close to Nice and the many towns along the Riviera. The home was very comfortable with lovely terraces overlooking the village rooftops and out to the sea. There were 2 kitchens, but we just used the one on the upper level -- nicely equipped with the basics including great views The twin bedroom was comfortable, but a bit tight and would serve best for children (or a single adult). Nice master bedroom with bath and a third loft bedroom. Haut de Cagnes is charming and Cagnes sur Mer (a short walk down the hill) had a terrific fresh food market, multiple boulangeries, a supermarket and various restaurants. Kerry-Leigh was very helpful and provided useful info on getting to the house and traveling locally. We would certainly return!
The charming, fortified medieval village of Haut de Cagnes is the oldest district of Cagnes sur Mer – ideally situated between Nice and Antibes and only a short car journey from Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport and within walking distance to the sea.
Here you are close to a boulangerie for warm fresh bread each morning and an excellent selection of restaurants for great dining. Local food markets, shops and outdoor cafes are all nearby. The area provides a perfect hopping on point to multiple destinations and attractions with its excellent rail and bus services.
Crowned with the original Grimaldi Castle, this enchanting medieval village with charming cobbled streets and remarkable ancient buildings transports you back in time to the 13th Century. The serenity and simplicity found in these pretty French villages allows you to enjoy the sun, sea and breath-taking views in a very relaxed atmosphere. Known as the ‘Montmartre of the French Rivieria’, Haut de Cagnes was the haunt of Renoir, Modigliani, Soutine, Yves Klein, Bardot and Cocteau. It’s easy to see why many famous artists lived or found their inspiration here, falling in love with the soft Mediterranean light and honest authenticity.
But this charming, perched village has so much more to offer, with its tiers of tiny streets, climbing soft stone walls and colourful houses bursting with history. On the main street and Place du Château, there are plenty of bustling restaurants and cafés plus numerous historical cultural events and colourful festivals are held during the year.
A short stroll down the hill will bring you to the town of Cagnes, which provides all amenities such as a boulangerie, a patisserie, a supermarket, post office, the main bus square and a wonderful covered food market. Close to the town centre lies the Renoir Museum, the Hippodrome for horse racing and Cros de Cagnes – the seaside resort of Cagnes sur Mer with its private and public beaches.
There is so much you can do without a car, such as; shopping in Cannes, people watching in St Tropez, perfume sampling in Grasse, gambling in Monaco, lunching in Italy and buying art in St Paul – all easily accessible and inexpensive with most bus journeys costing only 1€50. Or if you prefer to cycle along the coastline to Nice or Antibes by bike, bike hire is rarely far away.
No 44 is a free navette, which runs up to the medieval village every 15 minutes from the town centre of Cagnes at Square Bourdet (the central bus station). It is ideal if you have luggage or shopping bags or when the weather is hot – it travels right up to the Château with a few strategic stops on the way.
