The villa has been owned by the same family - American expat filmmakers - for nearly 60 years.

K.C. Schulberg purchased this villa in 1956

There are few houses on the Riviera (or in the world, for that matter) that have preserved their oroginal charm as successfully as 'La Terre de Sienne'. As soon as you enter the property, you are transported to another time.

This antique villa and its garden are very beautiful and I can recommend it to everybody, especially to those who need enough space. The location is absolutely wonderful and there are a lot of opportunities and activities you can plan. We visited the villa in a big family group and everybody liked it, especially the children. The house owner is also very nice and helpful.
Overall it was a great vacation, and we would visit this villa again!

Golf: There are many Golf Courses in the locality of Cagnes Sur Mer suitable for both novice golfers and professional golfers alike. The dry climate and warmer weather make Cagnes Sur Mer a great destination for Golfers. The Cote d'Azur has a golfing tradition hard to find anywhere else. The area has twenty seven courses with nineteen open all year. What better place than Cagnes Sur Mer to enjoy your Golf surrounded by fantastic scenery and of course the Club Houses are great too - typically with good Restaurants perfect for Golf Widows and Widowers! One nearby example is cited below....

Biot Golf Club - La Bastide du Roi, 06410 Biot. - Tel: +33 4 93 65 08 48

This is one of the Riviera's oldest courses. The fairways gently succeed each other, with calm and untroubled play to look forward to – a pleasant golfing experience for all players - without many difficulties, you will find here a course full of rustic and romantic charm which welcomes visitors. This is the nearest course to the Apartment and is very popular with people who have stayed. They offer golf lessons in English, club and shoe hire and a superb Restaurant at the 19th.

Ski: It is often assumed that the Alpes-Maritimes mountains are too close to the Côte d'Azur with its mild winters to offer any serious skiing options however the high altitudes and favourable weather conditions can make skiing possible right through until April.

The largest resorts in the region are Isola 2000, Auron and Valberg/Beuil but there are many small resorts that offer competitively priced lift passes and are in easy reach for a day or weekend trip.

The département has a long association with the sport of skiing and the first ski club, 'Ski Club des Alpes Maritimes' was founded in 1909 by Victor de Cessole, from Nice, who spent much of his life conquering these tough mountains.

There are 465 peaks over 2,000 meters in the region with, towards the Italian border, six peaks standing over 3,000 metres.
