About Stuart Larder

As a surveyor I always wanted to build a striking modern timber highly insulated ecological villa and we had this opportunity in 2010 incorporating many ideas such as heat exchangers which provide low cost heating in the Winter and air conditioning in the Summer,as well as hot water,and a rain water recuperation underground tank.

We have known this area for over 20 years and we were lucky enough to find this stunning hillside location which has panoramic views from all the rooms from Cap D'Antibes to the bay of Cannes.

We wanted to create a villa that gives our holidaymakers an exceptional experience which is in a bit of paradise between heaven and earth.Our recent reviews show we have been successful in achieving this.

Stuart Larder purchased this villa in 2010

Why Stuart Larder chose Magagnosc

We have had experiences of staying in holiday villas which were tired,poorly furnished and we were determined to create a high quality villa and furnishings but at the same time offering good value for money.

What makes this villa unique

Whether you like country or town ,quiet or busy the location offers you both with the lower Alps behind us offering fantastic walks,hilltop villages,country markets,and amazing views.The alternative is avaible as within 30 minutes you have the whole of the Cote D'Azure coast to play with from Italian influenced Menton known for its citrus fruits,glitzy Monaco,cosmopolitan Nice,Old Antibes with market and busy port,fun loving Juan les Pins,and buzzing Cannes famous for the film festival.

Great comfortable home and astounding views.

  • 5 of 5

my wife chose this home to bring together her side of the family. The attention for details to make you comfortable upon arrival as nothing to envy a W, Meridian or Mandarin hotels were I would have gone if it were just the two of us. This home really deserves the title of Home away as you are there at home. Can't compliment enought.

60th birthday celebrations

  • 5 of 5

We used LaTour to accommodate my brother and sister in law, my daughter and husband and my son and his partner when I celebrated my birthday. It is little more than half an hour inland from Nice airport and easily accessed by car. The 4 excellent ensuite double bedrooms were ideal for our needs and each had stunning views towards the coast. The kitchen and living areas were generously provisioned and the outside space with pool, sun loungers and comfy sofas allowed us to take full advantage of the late summer sun. Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The owner lives next door and after welcoming us said we could contact him with any issues or if we needed information. An excellent information folder was also provided. He had previously sent comprehensive lists of restaurants and places to visit so that we could research some ideas before we went. At his suggestion we dined at L'Ecole des Filles in nearby Bar Sur Loups and had an excellent, if somewhat quirky, meal!

The highlight of the weekend was Lori Mazziotti, a lovely lady who caters for private functions, who came to the house to cook us a beautiful dinner. I highly recommend her.

The younger members of our party drove to Monaco for one of the days and my son and his partner visited Cannes, less than a half hour drive away. We drove into the Gorge Du Loup and visited the hilltop village of Gourdon. We also visited local markets and went to Grasse and Miramar. However, La Tour is a lovely place just to sit, chill and step off the treadmill. A word of warning - the property is on a steep hill (hence the fabulous views) and the morning walk to the boulangerie required some effort on the way back!

One reason why we used this property was that the owner was flexible about our booking. We wanted to cover a long weekend - Thursday to Tuesday - and he was prepared to accommodate our needs since it was no longer peak season.

Highly recommended!

Familiarity does not breed contempt....

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to La Tour - having stayed previously in 2012. This time round we found it clean and well maintained. Stuart looked after us well during our stay and was available whenever we needed.

The villa and pool are fantastic with a great vista.

All mod cons together with A/C in all rooms

4 spacious south facing bedrooms all with ensuite

there were only 3 in our party but we enjoy our own space and don't believe in compromising when we go on holiday and don't forget your iPad if you want to make full use of Apple TV.

Would highly recommend if you want a relaxed, comfortable holiday in cote d'azur

Great Stay in early April

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights with 5 friends at this Eco villa in early April. The villa is up a hill so it has a great view of the surrounding area. The interior is decorated nicely and very comfortable. It has almost everything you need for a great stay from the pots and pans and dishes. It even has an Apple TV which was great for nightly entertainment sent via our iPads. The weather was so nice that we ate outside on the patio for serval of the days and fully utilized the grill for some BBQ as well. In the evening it was still a bit chilly so the fireplace really warmed up the place.

I highly recommend this place to others and Stuart (the owner) is great to work with. Although we didn't have a chance to meet in person (he was in London the week we were there), but his email responses are prompt and very detailed.

Great villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I stayed at La Tour for a lovely week in early July. The villa is perfect with very comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms and very well equipped kitchen. We travelled with our 2 teenage boys who thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the free wifi. The garden is lovely with stunning views and as the weather was good we spent all day outside. We ate at Capriccio's in the village a couple of times which is an easy 5/10 min stroll down the hill ( A bit tougher on the way back up) nice family friendly restaurant with outside seating. We also visited Valbonne and Antibes during our stay and would recommend a visit to both. Stuart was very helpful, conversing with my husband via email before our visit making our arrival very easy and his wife even did a bit of shopping for us as we were arriving late at night, providing us with a lovely welcome pack, which was very kind.

Wonderfully equipped house with great views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Villa La Tour for 2 weeks in May 2013, upon arrival we were greeted by a property which looks even better than the images suggest. From the kitchen to the bedrooms, everything is finished to a high standard and we felt right at home from day 1.

Our favourite part of the property was the pool area and also the amazing views of Cannes- the photos really are not able to do this justice.

We would recommend Villa La Tour to anyone, it is a great place to visit with so much to do in the surrounding areas.

Thanks Stuart!

Located in the lower foothills of the Southern Alps, Magagnosc is a picturesque Provencal village 5 minutes from the ancient town of Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. It is an excellent base from which to explore the Côte d'Azur and is just 30 minutes from the coast and popular destinations such as Cannes, Antibes, Juan les Pins and Nice. Provencal villages with fine restaurants such as Valbonne and Mougins are only 15 minutes drive away. Hilltop villages such as Gourdon, Bar sur Loup and Fayence are all nearby. There are many scenic walks in the Gorge du Loup and the mountains behind the villa, one of which is the GR51 (Balcons de la Cote d'Azur). Lac St Cassien and the Gorge provide excellent (and less crowded!) alternative swimming options to the coast. There are also 5 main ski stations in a 1-2 hour drive away. Road access is excellent and there is a regular bus service at the bottom of the road to Nice town, airport, Cannes and Grasse.

Other Activities: Canyoning, Go Karting, Paint balling,rock pool swimming

Golf: There are 5 golf courses all within 15/20 mins of the villa one of which is the PGA championship course at Mougins. The other courses are situated in Grasse,Valbonne,Mouans Sartoux,Opio,and a second course in Mougins.
