I want my guests to be happy in my home, and wish their experience to be joyful and relaxing. I've put as many creature comforts in there as I can imagine, and my guests have always been appreciative and delighted. You're here to enjoy yourself et vivre a la francaise!

A Dream Destination

Le Bar-sur-Loup was a tourist’s dream. It was a small village, perfectly located for innumerable day trips (to Tourettes-sur-Loup, to Nice, to Monaco, etc.) yet untouched by crowds. As we climbed the road at the end of each day, we felt like we were coming home. Chez Sutter was extremely comfortable and had everything we could have wanted. Most memorable was the view from the windows. We overlooked the Gorges du Loup and each hour of the day was a beautiful view. On a clear day we could see Gourdon, a perched village not far away. The apartment was convenient to a particularly excellent restaurant, Le Donjon, and across the street from the Tourist Office. The tourist office was very helpful in suggesting and planning trips. A small market was nearby as was a boulangerie. Every room in the house was complete and well-decorated. The kitchen, although we primarily ate out, had everything a gourmet cook would need. Our memories of Bar will last for a very long time.

We had an absolutely fabulous time in Bar. We loved the town, did lots of visits to Antibes and the beaches, and the hill towns, and even made it to the river twice. It was a highlight of our month in France. Your place was great and just what we needed.

Dear Valerie,
We just returned from a great two week stay at your home in Bar sur Loup, France. We have never had such a well-appointed rental property, nor one with such a fabulous view. It was a joy waking up to the incredible sight of the Gorges du Loup right outside our bedroom window. Everything inside made us feel right at home.

The town of Bar-sur-Loup is quite picturesque and quiet. It is not full of tourists, but nevertheless has a fine Tourist Information office, which I visited almost daily to discuss the day’s upcoming adventures. Our day always started off with a couple of fresh croissants and an espresso right in the village at the boulangerie.

The village is very well situated, as you know, close to many other picturesque villages. We hiked all the way up to our favorite, Gourdon, which is accessible by a well-marked trail, known as the Chemin du Paradis, which is very aptly named. Another trail also took up to Pont du Loup, which runs right along the river Loup and is the home to a large candy manufacturer, Florian Confiserie. We enjoyed the tour and the samples of this traditional manufacturer of all things sweet.

Other nearby villages we enjoyed were Tourettes-sur-Loup, a medieval town, and St. Paul de Vence, a walled pedestrian city with some of the best art galleries I have ever seen. Just outside of St. Paul is the renowned Fondation Maeght, housing a large collection of contemporary artwork, including pieces by Miro and Chagall. Other cute towns, all with farmer’s markets, included Valbonne and Colle du Loup. We also enjoyed Grasse, a ten-minute car or bus ride from the village. It has a nice old town, and three major perfume manufacturers, all of whom offer tours.

We did spend a couple of days exploring the much more crowded French Riviera, particularly Nice, Cannes and Antibes. I recommend taking the nearby bus to Cannes and Nice to avoid the heavy traffic in those cities.

We were always pleased to return to Bar after our jaunts down on the coast. It felt like home: peaceful and authentic. There are a few really excellent restaurants in the village, and the owners were always very happy to talk with us. We particularly liked “L’Ecole des Filles” and “L’Hostellerie du Château.” There’s even a remarkably good take-out pizza place right around the corner from the house.

The time went much too quickly, and we look forward to our next visit to this little slice of heaven.

We couldn’t have been happier in your home in Bar-sur-Loup. The four of us fit in there perfectly, and we were mercifully spared arguments over use the bathroom, thanks to the separation of one on each floor. My 21-year-old daughter and my 24-yr old son happily went their separate ways from us in the village, trying out their high school/college French, thrilled when they came back with the requisite grocery list. My husband and I spent untold hours hanging out the windows, shooting zillions of pictures (see the enclosed, of which you have doubles, I’m sure!), as well as relaxing, reading books and cooking. The four of us went to every village and town you recommended and filled the already-filled guest book with stories of our adventures. We loved the area and found the French accommodating, friendly, even smiling, and wondered where all those rude waiters we’ve always heard about were hanging out—we certainly never saw or were served by one. On the contrary, the French people couldn’t have been nicer and more pleasant and willing to put up with our fractured French language skills, although my daughter and son did the lion’s share of the ordering to spare their parents further humiliation. We shall certainly return. We’re still regaling our neighbors with our stories and photos and have told everyone about our home away from home—expect more visitors from Pittsburgh!
Thank you again for all your help, instructions, and good cheer about everything. It was a wonderful experience, for my children as young adults and for us as a family.

What happy memories we have from our stay at your lovely townhouse! The late October visit afforded excellent weather, and the house was so comfortable and so convenient to exploring the surrounding area. The mountains and gorge nearby provided dramatically beautiful scenery to view through a camera lens or to hike through. We were charmed by Le-Bar-Sur-Loup itself. It was easy to fool ourselves into believing that we had assimilated into the town as we shopped for our daily baguette, bought a paper, or picked out some fresh fruit at the weekly market in the square. Everyone was so nice, especially the sweet girl at the tourism center. We found, to our surprise and relief, that our lack of French was no problem. Everyone spoke English and made us feel welcome. The woman at the tourist center appreciated my attempt to speak French, and we had such fun discussing which restaurants to try, and what towns to explore. The weather was gorgeous, and we loved exploring the village with its winding streets, narrow alleyways and authentic medieval dwellings. The old doors fascinated me, as did the church windows and public fountains. Your home made us feel like we were staying with family in a foreign country. Thank you for making it so pleasant for us.
