Designed by a student of le Corbusier, this villa combines Provencal charm (stuccoed walls and tile roofs) with an open modern plan, all arranged on a few levels (the main floor is on three levels, so the elderly and the very young will want supervision) with a full pool and spectacular view of the Mediterranean You can see a panorama extending from The hills of Monte Carlo to Corsica (on a clear day) to Cannes, all while lounging by the pool beside fruit trees, and sipping on the local Vin du Var.
We are in a nature district, so great hikes up mountain streams or along the foothills of the Maritime Alpes are nearby. Vence, a charming hill town is 5 minutes away, with cafes, restaurants and shopping, and St. Paul de Vence, with its famous galleries, museum and boule court, is 10 minutes. Haute cuisine restaurants, including the well-resepcted Chateau St. Martin, from modest to extravagant, are peppered throughout the neighborhood, and both Nice and Cannes, with their famous promenades, hotels, museums, beaches and shopping are 20-30 minute drives.
This is our family home, which my parents purchased after traveling to the Cote d'Azur for thirty years and searching for the perfect perch above the sea. It possesses charms for young and old, loungers and sightseers, athletes and intellectuals, connoisseurs and folks who just want to chill. It is not luxurious, but it is comfortable, serene and tasteful. It is the most relaxing place I know.
I am a teacher in Bronx, NY and a lover of the Cote d'Azur. The contact info will lead you to our property manager.
Patrice Bertocco purchased this villa in 1982
My parents summered in Vence and the Cote d'Azure and I fell in love with the area.
Shopping in the old city of Vence. The local museums. The best restaurants in the world. An unparalleled view and a simple life by the pool.
