Why Michael chose Grasse
The property has, we think, a very special homely feel about it. It is a wonderful place for relaxation, peace and quiet, but still close to the beauty of the Cote d'Azur.
What makes this Villa unique
There are many areas in the garden to chill-out (under the Mimosa above the boule court or sitting by the pool under an olive tree or down by the stream listening to the water flow) but you can feel all together as a family when sitting at the dining table on the main terrace, while the kids play in the pool or on the boule court below you. When it gets too hot you can relax in the lounge with the airco on.

A stunning villa
I cannot recommend this villa highly enough. It is extremely well equipped, very well kept and simply beautiful. 9 of us shared this villa, including 5 young children, it's a very safe environment with a gated pool and there was lots of room for everyone. Everything we could possibly need was at hand and at a very high standard.
We would not hesitate to book this villa again.
Thank you to the owner Mike and to Alan who looked after us during stay.
The house was as good as it looked on the website. Very clean, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Lovely grounds, close to loads of picturesque places to visit. We loved the pool, the pétanque, the badminton...
Proprietor charming and very attentive.
