The house is located in the village of Le Bar-sur-loup, in a corner of the village square; parking is available right in front of the door. A small balcony off the living room overlooks the town and valley, and all of the windows have breathtaking views of the Gorges du Loup. Well appointed, excellent beds and two separate bathrooms allow a party of four space, comfort, and relaxation. Master BR has queen sized bed, guest BR has two twins; living room has couch and dining area and a marvelous bookcase with a friendly 'lending library.' Modern kitchen bathed in blue and white Provencal colors invite you to cook; its well-stocked cabinets provide loads of cookware and table settings for 8.
Spend your days at the beach (15 kms), wander the lovely hilltop villages, visit the many superb art museums, browse the shops, relax and read in the house. Four restaurants right in the village allow you time away from the kitchen when you're not otherwise dining on the coast.
Owner Description: A devoted francophile, I fell in love with France and the French at the impressionable age of 14...and have never quite recovered. For forty years I've wandered around every corner of France, thrilling to each region as if it's a different country, loving the differences and regionalisms I come across. 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! Let the party begin--que la fête commence!
Why the Owner Chose Le-Bar-Sur-Loup: This is a family home and we have enjoyed continuing the tradition of hosting families and friends here over the years.
The Unique Benefits of this Townhome: The marvelous climate (cool breezes in the evenings, warm sunny dry days); the unspoiled views; the friendliness of the villagers. The house is comfortable, homey, relaxing. The view from all the windows is breathtaking.
I majored in French at university, then left for France for what was supposed to be one year.....I never left.
Valerie Sutter purchased this townhome in 1986
The backcountry Riviera is one of France's most cherished areas. This is a pristine village, an authentic French experience. No tourist buses here, only locals, their children, their wonderful vin d'orange, and several excellent restaurants in the town.
Two bedrooms, two baths provide a perfect getaway for families and friends. You may end up hanging out the window all day long taking in the breathtaking view of the Gorges du Loup; at any rate, you'll never forget it.
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.
Just returned from a fabulous week in Le-Bar-Sur-Loup! Your townhouse was perfect for the two of us and it is exactly as described on the website. The only surprise was how much lovelier it is in person! It was very comfortably furnished and although there were only two of us, it could have easily accommodated four people. The kitchen was well equipped, however, with so many great restaurant options, we didn't cook very often! And the view, wow! Le-Bar-Sur-Loup is the perfect location for exploring the many lovely villages in the the hills above Nice. We never drove much more than an hour to discover another gem in the area...Gourdon, Grasse, Valbonne, Biot, Tende, Saint Paul de Vence, Le Saut Du Loup, Villa & Garden Ephrussi de Rothchild. Your suggestions for places to visit were right on the mark. Great walks right out your front door too! And the church bells...so lovely to hear them every hour. We had such a magnificent week, it was hard to say goodbye!
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.
The hill country behind the French Riviera is one of France's most cherished areas. The village of Le Bar-sur-loup in the Alpes-Maritimes department is 10 minutes east of Grasse, 25 minutes north of Cannes, and 40 minutes northwest of Nice. Bougainvilleas and charming hand-hewn doors adorn the homes in this village full of history dating from the 10th century. The house and the town overlook the beautiful valley of the Loup River including the famous Gorges du Loup. Various festivals, the entire Riviera, the proximity of Italy and Monaco, Provence to the west and the Alpes to the north make this village highly desirable. You'll mostly appreciate its authenticity: no big tour buses here, no noisy tourists, just the locals and the gorgeous view. Come feel like a one of the villagers; it's a totally native experience.
