Why Liesel Havercroft chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

Riveloup is very well situated, bridging the gap between exploring in land and enjoying the coast. The coastal town can get extremely busy in the summer and the traffic heavy, at Riveloup you'll be able to choose when you want the buzz, but you can come back late afternoon to enjoy a more peaceful time by the pool.

The sound of the river is very soothing and there are stunning views to enjoy from different angles of the property. It is close enough to town like Valbonne, Grasse, Chateauneuf, Le Rouret, Bar-sur-Loup or Tourrettes-sur-Loup to enjoy a meal out at night.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Riveloup is ideal for large family/friend get togethers as we're one of the few properties that can accommodate up to 19 guests in beds.

The property is set on 1ha of beautiful parkland with lots of activities, so you could still find a quiet place even if you are a large group.

The garden is flat and safe for children with the swimming pool fenced off. There is also a large sandpit, trampoline, table tennis, boules court and 3 different rooms to watch TV/videos in. We have bedrooms that are very well equipped for children, one with a boys theme and one with a girls theme.

We are well set up for small children and babies, and will try to accommodate you as best as we can to make your stay with children worry free, safe and enjoyable.

Perfection personified; 10-star perfect for both children and adults - in all ways

  • 5 of 5

How can one describe the bestest of holidays?

Riveloup - house, pool, gardens, games, AND the river within 20 metres or so with its "rapids", tree swing, deep enough water to jump in, and shallow enough to check out the fishes, tadpoles, baby frogs - was 'just the business'.

House very comfortable, roomy. We were 16... 8 adults, 8 kids! Kitchen had all that could be required....with all necessary aids, ie dishwasher, washing machine etc. Not to mention the 3 fridges, to cool the quantitities of beer and wine required!

Riveloup is surrounded by gorges, mountains, adventures - so it can be both a pool and river holiday (for those wanting to chill out) and also outdoor pursuits, challenging and otherwise for the adrenaline junkles!

LIesel is a thoughtful and delightful woman who would (and did) help in any way.

We wanted 2 evenings catered for, and Liesel pointed us in the direction of Bridie|Simply food; excellent, very delicious, both meat and vegetarian.

One thing, and nothing to do with Liesel or Riveloup, if you're hiring a car from Nice Airport, arrange to have it waiting for you at Arrivals - do NOT go to the car rental terminal. It was teeming, resulting in a 2 hours queue...

I am SO SO glad that I found Riveloup and Liesel online; it was a wonderful family catch-up/holiday.....

I recommend Liesel and Riveloup UNRESERVEDLY - as I said up top there - The Bestest of Holidays.

Peace and Quiet in natural surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have been here less han two weeks and will stay for another 3 weeks. I write this review so that anyone looking for a spot to really relax in will consider Riveloup and perhaps reserve their holidays while it is still available. The owner, Liesel and her husband, Stewart, are a delightful couple whose desire it is to make guests comfortable. We are renting the guest house as we are only two (and three when our daughter comes to visit over my birthday weekend). The guest house is very comfortable with two leather couches, a well stocked kitchen, and two large glass doors that let in a lot of light. Everything the previous reviewer described is still the same. The WiFi works well, and the TV has UK channels. There are a number of very good restaurants in the area. We took the train to Milano to visit La Scala and stayed 2 nights to enjoy visiting the Duomo as well as the Museums there. A drive up to Gourdon should be a must. For an evening stroll to the "local dog run", within a lovely little park with the ruins of an old paper mill, is a prerequisite if one wants to have a good night's sleep! The river Loup gurgles along the property and is probably a refreshing addition to the pool on hot summer days. All in all, Riveloup is a lovely place to spend a family vacation. Just one warning: watch for the bumps in the road just before the electronic gates!

Riveloup is a delightful house in a peaceful setting within a lovely area of southern France .

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful extended family holiday at Riveloup , there were 15 of us,we 3 older members stayed in the guest house which was ideal with its own area of seating and kitchen for a gentle start to the day . The rest of the family occupied the main house and the 5 teens throughly enjoyed their own rooms and tv (Olympics) . The pool and river were great and lots of swimming fun and exploring was had , plenty of towels were to hand . The more energetic did some walking through the nearby gorge which was very lovely with stunning views . The house is very well equipped and clean, lots of fridge space which is important when feeding 15 !! We all enjoyed eating together at the large outdoor tables and adding to the atmosphere with candles which were to hand . The coast is a short drive away where the charming town and exclusive port of Antibes provided an interesting visit . Liesel is an excellent host who did her best to provide us with information as we needed it . An amazing area to visit ,off the well trodden path but not isolated ,we had a great holiday !

Beautiful and extremely comfortable holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and extremely comfortable house, with a large number of bedrooms to accommodate big families, in a lovely environment. Furniture is perfectly suited and the swimming-pool is great. We loved it. Last but lot least, Liesel, the owner, is very nice and friendly.

Perfect for large families

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic property in a wonderfully scenic location. We were welcomed by Liesel on arrival and given a quick overview of the property and nearby facilities and services. The friendliness and thoughtfulness of the owners was remarkable, not least of all in their assistance with getting a tire replaced, allowing us to focus on enjoying our holiday.

The property itself is large and spacious with plenty of room for large groups. It is well equipped with large and neatly maintained grounds, with something to keep everyone entertained, from toddlers to grandparents, making it ideal for extended families. The views from the garden is magnificent with both Le Bar-Sur-Loup and Gourdon clearly visible. The small lavender patch is a delight for anyone interested in photographing butterflies and other insects. It is a pleasure to prepare food in the kitchen and the covered porch next to the swimming pool is a great place for meals or just relaxing in a chair with a good book. On a warm day you can cool down in the immaculately maintained swimming pool, or walk down the the Loup river that runs past the property and take a refreshing dip in the river.

The property is easily accessible through a short 45 minute drive from Nice Côte d'Azur Airport, making it convenient and easy to get to. It is conveniently located for day trips exploring the pre-Alps and nearby villages, or for longer day trips further into Provence. Visiting the lavender fields around Valensole or dipping your toes into the Mediterranean along the Côte d'Azur are all options for longer day excursions.

In summary, a wonderful property, well equipped with something for everyone, conveniently located and cared for by friendly and thoughtful owners.
