Both floors are air conditioned, and there is high speed internet. On the lower floor, there is a bedroom with a sea view and a queen size bed (160 x 200 cm). There is a marble tiled bathroom with a shower and washing machine. On the top floor is the living/dining-room, with a fireplace and a modern kitchen. There is a 3 ring induction stove, a microwave, an oven, a dishwasher, a kettle, and a toaster. All along the main wall of the room, there are windows and sliding glass doors, opening onto the terrace. The terrace comes with an awning, that makes it a very pleasant place to be, even on the hottest summer day.

There is a satellite-TV (French and Swedish), a DVD-player, and a Bose stereo. Telephone is included, to landlines in Europe and North America. A notebook pc can be supplied on demand. The bookcase offers books, DVDs and CDs.

My name is Lena, and I am Swedish. Back home, I used to be a business journalist, writing mainly about the psychology behind it all. But like many people, I always had a dream about living in France. In 2002, my dream came through, and I found Haut de Cagnes - a hidden gem. I have never regretted it! Nowadays, however, I also have a small apartment in Stockholm - that I can rent out too!

Mrs Petersen purchased this apartment in 2005

I fell in love with La Perle when I first saw it - the view, the light, the atmosphere. It is unique and is really worth its name!

The first six years I only used it as a rental property. People just loved it, and many come back regularly. Two years ago, I completely refurbished it and made it my own home. Since I also own a studio on the ground floor of the building - and an apartment in Stockholm - I can still rent it out and let others enjoy this lovely place!

La Perle is a mix between historic and modern. It is very well equipped, and you will find everything you need (if not, just let me know!). Looking out on the sea and the mountains from the terrace or the living-room is just wonderful - in summer or winter, in daytime or night time, in rain or sunshine. Indoors, you will enjoy the old stone floors, the wooden ceiling beams - or the modern and fully equipped kitchen.

The Best!

  • Submitted: Mar 9, 2009
  • Stayed: Feb 2009
In 10 years of renting apartments in Western Europe this is the nicest we have found. It has a wonderful, ancient feel (part of being in a bourg medieval) but is comfortable and very well-equipped. We cooked many meals and ate on the lovely terrace with incredible sea and mountain views even though it was February. Even the bed is very comfortable. The custom-designed, blue-tiled shower is dazzling. The decor is nicely done. The village is endlessly fascinating and contains many notable restaurants very close by. We ate especially well at Entre Cour et Jardin. Fleur de Sel, La Goutte d'Eau and Jimmy's were also quite good. If you can get an invitation to the village club Cercle des Amis (especially on an evening when they are having bagna cauda) don't pass it up. The description of this apartment was absolutely accurate. We are seniors who travel without a car and found this a convenient rental. We are avid walkers and found the village itself very engaging. A free mini-bus stops at the front door of this apartment to go down to the centre ville and back with groceries and to get to the many inexpensive regional buses and trains. Many places to go in the region as well including Grasse, Mandelieu, Menton and Nice.

Flawless Gem

A spotless gem, La Perle, with its wide views over the Med,has everything anyone could conceivably need for an enjoyable holiday. Its location in a quintessential medieval town, makes it the perfect place for simply experiencing village life and trying out the many nearby restaurants or taking day trips to any of the fascinating places along the coast and inland. We have visited three times now and even an extended stay of two weeks seemed too short. La Perle is likely to be the outstanding highlight of any trip to France and is highly recommended.

Best kept secret of the Riviera

La Perle is an enchanted place. Very tastefully decorated, warm and very practical in perfect condition with everything you want from a house. You feel at home, right away. Only the stunning,addictive views of the different shades of blue in the Mediteranean, seen through every window in the living room remind you that home waits for you somewhere else. Roseana, the lady taking care of the property is also very friendly and accommodating.
Haut de Cagnes can be slightly intimidating at first, with the tight, narrow and relatively steep streets, even for medieval standards. It is a living village, with old, young people, who all know each other. All this is made possible by the FREE, small #44 bus, coming every 15 minutes. You can hear the pulse of the entire village, just by taking the bus. The whole round trip up and down the hill is not more than 10 minutes. There is only one bus and everybody knows the driver.
If you rent a car, park it at Saint Luce right next to the #44 station.
The commercial center of Cagnes sur Mer, the fresh produce market, is 100 yards away from the said #44 station and afterwards, on the hill, the Sous Barri station is right in front of the house.
You can enjoy everything on the beautiful terrace, with fresh air, beautiful flowers and birds chirping, away from the noise and agitation of the Riviera, but with wonderful views nonetheless.
If you come by bus, the Nice airport bus station is next to #44 station and the airport is truly 10-15 min away, considering that the traffic is good.
If you want to go out, there are plenty of small familial restaurants, with friendly owners and local produce. The Place du Chateau offers excellent views of the snow capped Maritime Alps. The Grimaldi Palace it's worth a visit, too.
We were heartbroken to live, but hope to come back soon. Thank you Lena and Roseanna!
Owner's Response: I´m so happy that you enjoyed your stay - both in La Perle and in Haut de Cagnes! Both are pretty special places. I think coming to Haut de Cagnes is like going back a couple of hundred years in time, especially if you come from a big city, somewhere around the world. Walking the narrow streets - or having a meal at the Place du Chateau (the castle square) - is very relaxing after a busy day sightseeing, or on the beach. Welcome back!

Dear Lena re La Perle

Having stayed in the village previously we were not disappointed in La Perle. The location is great and we enjoyed the facilities of the local bus and also good bus services to Canne and Antibes to enjoy the sandy beaches. Everywhere we went including Nice we enjoyed works of Renoir, Matisse and Picasso. We watched the village bouche players in the evening while enjoying a glass of wine, and enjoyed the village restaurants. Prepared our meals and enjoyed them in La Perle watching the sunset and the view from the balcony. Food shopping was fun in the markets in Cagnes sur Mer. We will have no hesitation in returning next summer if we can organise some suitable dates.

Kind regards,
Jill Flanagan

Owner's Response: I´m happy that so many of my guests enjoy having a meal or a drink on the terrace. I myself especially like the nighttime glitter along the coastline...

The historic village of Haut-de-Cagnes is a charming little world of its own. It sits on a hilltop, between Nice and Antibes, and is only about a 20 minutes walk from the beach. Nice airport is 15 minutes by car. Buses take you to Nice, Antibes, Cannes, Grasse, St Paul and Vence. The train runs along the coast to Italy. The village itself has around 10 restaurants.

At the foot of the hill, in the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer, there is a wonderful covered Provencal food market, surrounded by stalls with vegetables, fruits and flowers. Little shops offer local specialities. There are a couple of supermarkets in the town centre, and many more in the immediate region.

There is a free shuttle (navette) that will take you up and down between Haut-de-Cagnes and Cagnes-sur-Mer. It ends up at the local square in Cagnes-sur-Mer, very close to various shopping possibilities. The navette runs every 15 min, and is very convenient if you have a lot of groceries to carry or if you are with children in strollers. It takes you all the way up to the ”Place du Chateau”, in Haut-de-Cagnes, and down again.

The district of Le Haut-de-Cagnes was listed as a historical site in 1948. It has held on to the calm atmosphere of a village with its history-laden stones, its shady, narrow streets decorated with flowers, and its unique views over the Mediterranean.

A number of artists, in love with the Mediterranean light, settled down in this pretty village known as 'The Montmartre of the Côte d’Azur'.

Known artists and writers are; Renoir, Soutine, Klein, Foujita, Modigliani, Derain, Georges Simenon, John Lewis, Brigitte Bardot and Greta Garbo. Most of whom had either lived here or vacation for a longer period of time.
