Overview

About the property

3 double bedrooms 1 bedroom with 2 single beds plus 1bedroom in pool house

Located near Grasse, the 'Bastide Saint Philippe', is surrounded by a 3300 sq. meters closed garden, in a protected area. The private private swimming pool (11,8 m x 4,8 m with roller security system) and its solarium with awning, is very peaceful and relaxing, the only disturbance being the bird's songs. The pool-house includes a summer kitchen, , perfect to those lazy holiday evenenings. A private tennis court will suit 'amateur' players.

Bicycles are provided to explore the local countryside. Babyfoot, and ping pong also available.

Inside, the villa's recent decoration is a modern interpretation of the traditional Provencal style. All equipment is very recent.

the village: The village of Saint Vallier de Thiey is within 3 minutes by car.

You will find there shops, restaurants, a mini super market, post, bank services and pharmacy.

At 10 km : a very typical village, called Cabris

At 10 km : Grasse, 'Ville d'Art' and World Perfume Capital.

Golf.

At 30 km : Cannes, and la Croisette

Our private pool: is equipped with a clever sun heating system, which allows to benefit of a very pleasant temperature of water, during the sunny period.

During the months where the sun is less kind, an electric heating system can also be switched on (but this involves extra cost to be agreed with our Visitors).

The water of the pool is sterilized with 'ozone', which allows to reduce the quantity of chlorin. So the water is

very pure, soft, and does not have any 'chlorin perfume', which is a good thing for the kids who remain all day long in the pool !

Furthermore, our pool is checked every week, to make sure that the whole system is working correctly and that the Ph data are OK.

Our villa is a paradise also for children and for babies. A special securized playing area is available for juniors (with children house, tobogan, and various toys), just near our petanque . So, parents may play petanque and keep an eye on their small

kids. Babies will find all equipments at their sizes (high chairs, cots, bath, pushchairs, gaming carpets .....)

About Nadia Pieters-Gay

We fell in love with this house in 2000. It looked as a jewel among the Nature, far from the crowd but however not too far from the Coast ! We thought it would be a perfect residence for our holidays. In fact, we love it so much that every year we spend our holidays working hard to improve it, and make it more and more comfortable and beautiful.... So, over the last years, we only rested some minutes in our blue sun beds !!! but we are so happy with the changes we have made ourselves in our villa. .

Nadia Pieters-Gay purchased this villa in 2000

Why Nadia Pieters-Gay chose Saint-Vallier-de-Thiey

When we happened to book a villa for our holidays , we were often disappointed by the minimum services offered, by a lack of hospitality, and by a 'standard' decoration with no harmony. So, we have tried to offer to our visitors exactly the opposite : hospitality, services, harmony, and friendly contacts. In other words, we want that our visitors feel at home, in their own house for a while, with everything they may need.

What makes this villa unique

We are therefore quite happy to share our beautiful 'Bastide

Saint Philippe' with many families, who appreciate our efforts, and

spend peaceful holidays in our beloved Bastide. As they feel so well, they take great care of our house, and this is our reward.

Welcome to you !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the great time in your beautiful house. We enjoyed it very much. Our three dogs had so much fun they are running all day. The interior is particularly noteworthy. As much attention to detail. We felt very well and would love to come back. The entire property is a dream. The pool was very nice and warm, thank you for that. We have very good recovery.

Charming, beautifully decorated and set in gorgeous tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

The property was very spacious, safe, secure had everything you would need with loads of facilities, absolutely as described. Above all though it was charming, beautifully decorated and set in gorgeous tranquil location on the edge of a quintessential provisional town, that has all the amenities you would want. Thoroughly recommended with the bonus of a full set of instructions for everything! Perfect for the annual family get together. The only negative was we were missing a few large sun umbrellas on our visit, however the owners said they broke in a storm prior to our visit and were due to be replaced.

Fantastic unique fun family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

La Bastide accommodation is very special - it has everything, and I mean everything, a family group could possibly want. It looks exactly as the pictures show, and is full of interesting deco touches making it pretty unique in a fun way. We went with our son, his wife and their 1 year old who had an absolute ball. The gardens are perfect in size and character with all-day sunshine and canopies for shade. The heated pool is to die for and deep enough to dive in at one end. It was like being in our own hotel. Fully equipped with all manner of gadgets to make whatever you want to eat, and a wonderful BBQ as seen in the pictures. At 3km, Its just too far to walk to the village centre and back with a buggy but theres plenty of easy parking in what is a really cute place with all the usual French local essentials - cafe/restaurant/bars, boulangerie, boucherie, intermarche and little Friday market all set in a valley surrounded by the hills of les Alpes Maritimes. Its around 15 minutes from Grasse which is a lovely town with winding streets and plenty of eateries! It's also the perfume manufacturing centre of the nation. But the loveliest place to visit is nearby Cabris, 10 minutes drive along winding roads from La Bastide, the village has the most beautiful view over the valley all the way to Cannes, and a michelin-listed restaurant which should be michelin-starred it was that good. Back to the villa, being single storey is a great advantage - no stairs obviously, and the bedrooms are nice and cool - stone walls, and dark when shutters are closed at night. There are two well appointed bathrooms, one has a freestanding spa shower, the other has a bath and shower over it. Both have WCs, and there is a separate 3rd WC. Just one thing to be aware of, the drainage method is via a distant sceptic tank, and you will need to get your head around the loo paper thing. (ask me!), but everything works really well. Nadia the owner is super-friendly and efficient, and there are lots of helpful written tips to help guests navigate the villa and its contents. You will not be disappointed if you choose this stay, and we would definitely go again.

Owner's Response: Dear Michelle, You are really a lovely visitor ! It was a pleasure for us to have you and your family in our villa : - You communicate, - you read the messages I sent you, (although my English may be not easy to understand ! ) . - you thank us for the welcome basket , offered when you arrived (approximately 10 % of our visitors said "thank you" for the basket nowadays, and sometimes I wonder whether it's worth to go on with this welcome basket) - you have let our villa in perfect condition - you take time to write a review when you are back home !!! If all visitors could be as you are, it would be "paradise above blue sky." Many thanks again and be sure that if you happen to come back, I will propose to you special friendly rental conditions !

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night so it was a wonderful surprise in the morning to see that the house was even better than the photographs. All the booking in formalities were quickly and pleasantly carried out by Jean-Pierre. Loved his shop.....especially the cheese!!!

Inside the house was immaculate but very welcoming and had absolutely EVERYTHING (and more) that you would need while you were there. Plenty of instructions and notes for equipment meant no guessing how something worked. The garden is large and very private with lovely mature trees, roses and lavender.The BBQ on the terrace was great and we used it twice and ate outside even though it got a little chilly later on. We used the pool most days, played Boules and table tennis.There are many places nearby to visit. Grasse is very nice but drive further up into the mountains for the most incredible views. St Vallier de Thiey is a pretty place with friendly people, nice cafes, some shops, supermarket and a great butcher.

At night it is very peaceful and quiet.

We had an amazing, relaxing time. It was wonderful and we simply didn't want to leave.

Communications with Nadia have been excellent and it was lovely to speak to her on the last day.

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful house. I hope we can come back again someday.

Mary and Les

Can never forget the beautiful Bastide St Philippe

  • 5 of 5

Although we stayed here in 2013, we have never forgotten our beautiful stay and would dearly love to return. The whole property and gardens are immaculate - the choice of bedrooms stunning and the facilities are amazing. Our family of 5 (adults) had a wonderfully relaxed 9 days away in the sun (September 2013) and the place is a credit to Nadia and her team. We are hugely embarrassed that we didn't leave feedback earlier... (we are so lazy!), but the memory of our summer at St Philippe has never dimmed. We will be back, if Nadia will have us! Thank you! <3

Owner's Response: Dear 2013 visitors ! This is a fantastic surprise to receive your kind review, and I am happy to read that 3 years later, you keep so good memories of your stay in our villa. Thank you very much for your comments, which are as a reward for us ! Over the last three years, we have made new arrangements in our beloved villa (petanque court, big swings, gloriette, small children securized playing area and others which I forgot). So, it's quite urgent that you come back ! . Our calendar is always filled very much in advance, but our Bastide can be yours again. In the meantime, best wishes to you and thanks again. Nadia
