I moved with my husband Art to the south of France with the idea of staying for a couple of years but we fell in love with the area and its amazing climate.
We were lucky enough to find "La Bastide Saint Christophe" and to make it our home.
I hope to offer our guests a sense of the beauty and tranquility that enchanted us when we moved here more than 20 years ago!
Milly purchased this apartment in 2003
We were actually looking for what seemed like the impossible property! A characterful house big enough for us to live in and rent out holiday apartments somewhere in the Grasse area or a village nearby. To top it all it had to be south facing, not on a main road, and walking distance to the local boulangerie.
Our initial reaction after the first viewing was a great big headache.........Maybe it was the wallpaper and crépi (all now thankfully removed!) or it was just too much to take in, but it was scarily perfect for us! Gorgeous authentic village, lovely views, beautiful old olive grove, characterful architecture, place for a pool and walking distance not only to the boulangerie but to excellent restaurants as well!
Thanks for a lovely stay! We enjoyed the pool, apartment and surroundings. Recommend a trip to Gourdon.

Millie and her husband were so kind and helpful during every step of our stay. Their home and property are picture-perfect, their hospitality was incomparable. Millie picked up up at the bus stop, helped us have pizza ready when we arrived, made reservations for our meal at a fantastic local restaurant, had fresh croissants and fruit for our breakfast, and even loaned us clothes because our luggage never arrived. Amazing people in an amazing location!
We booked this apartment based on its proximity to Nice, the lovely photos and the fact that it had all the details we required, namely a pool, outside eating area, dishwasher, washing machine (required for 2 small children) and secure car parking. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find that it exceeded our expectations. The apartment was spacious and nicely furnished, the view from the balcony was stunning (much enjoyed throughout the holiday) and the pool area was clean and well stocked with sun loungers/umbrellas. The owners (Milly and Art) were most welcoming and friendly, providing us with simple instructions to find th house along with lots of information and tips on places to visit within the area. They also provided an unexpected selection of toys and books that our children happily enjoyed throughout the holiday. Bar sur Loup has good local shops for purchasing provisions as well as some lovely local restaurants. We would definitely recommend this property as a good place use as a base for trips to the main attractions in the area as well as being somewhere to relax and soak up the sunshine!
We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a peaceful stay in a lovely part of France.
Milly's directions from Nice airport were spot on. We arrived late and even had a pizza ordered for us!
The apartment was exactly as listed, and there was plenty of bedding, good quality linen etc. The kitchen had everything you would need to feed and water your family. A large fridge with a good sized freezer compartment, all the crockery, pots and pans you would need are there, and Milly's directions on the way in from the airport also included the location of the local well stocked supermarket,
The view from the wide balcony which opens out from the living room is stunning, capturing the view down the Loup valley. There are comfy chairs, sofa, TV, DVD and a hi-fi with plenty of CDs if you forget to bring your own. One criticism: Michael Bolton has no place in *anyone's* CD collection!
There is a really handy dresser in the living room filled with toys and jigsaws, which we really enjoyed as we took two young 'uns aged three and five.
The two bedrooms were nicely done, and the absence of aircon wasn't really a stress as there are quiet fans in each room.
The swimming pool is lovely, refreshing, spotlessly maintained and with great views over the valley.
Finally the apartment is well situated for exploring the hilltop towns and villages around the southern coast (Cannes, Monaco, etc.). Ourselves; we went to Cabris (enjoyed fantastic Moule et Frites dinner at the "Mini Grill Restaurant") and Thoule-Sur-Mer which has a fantastic small quiet bay especially good for young children.
Bar-sur-Loup itself is lovely. Quiet, pretty and embodying the sleepy French town vibe that is part of the reason for going there.
As you can see, we enjoyed it.
We spent our best ever holiday in La Bastide Saint Christophe. Milly & Art and their lovely daughters Sophia and Lucy, not to forget their pets bunny and guinea pig - them all create a unique atmosphere of warmth, hospitality, careness and personal touch, making this wonderful house not just a place to stay but more like home, where we are dreaming to come back to.
We enjoyed visiting local shops, market, restaurants in charming Le Bar Sur Loup and other villages around. Gourdon, Le Gorges Du Loup, Vence - places not to be missed. Art and Milly were very helpful with their recommendations on where to go to, not to mention guide books, maps and tourist info booklets that we found in the lounge. Also there was a selection of CDs, DVDs, books and even toys to entertain the whole family including our 5y.o. son and teenage daughter. The swimming pool and the area was excellent!
Many thanks again to Art and Milly for their great job done to keep the house and for their outstanding customer service to make their guests happy!

Das Appartement "Upper Garden" hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir haben uns mit unseren beiden Kindern sehr wohlgefühlt. Die großzügig geschnittene Wohnung mit zwei Schlafzimmer ,Wohnbereich, Bad und WC sowie eine gut ausgestattete Küche ist sehr sauber mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Der eigene Hof- und Gartenbereich mit toller Terasse und vor allem der schöne und gepflegte Pool haben uns sehr gut gefallen. Der Ort Le Bar sur Loup ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für eine Vielzahl von Städtetouren wie z.B. Grasse, Cannes, Nizza und Monaco. Für das Frühstück ist der Bäcker direkt im Ort in ca. 10 Gehminuten zu Fuß erreichbar. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten bieten Supermärkte die in einer Entfernung von ca. 3-4 Kilometer liegen. Milly und Art waren sehr hilfbereit, freundlich und tolle Gastgeber.
Für Familien eine tolles und empfehlenswertes Feriendomizil.
The perched village of Le Bar sur Loup is located between Grasse and Nice at the beginning of the picturesque Gorges du Loup. Here, the best of both worlds exists with the peace and beauty of the countryside and the excellent proximity to the towns on the Riviera.
The village itself has good facilities, including numerous restaurants, several bakeries, general store, pharmacy and post office.
Other Activities: go-karting, wine tasting
