About katharine ignatieff

After an international career this Canadian husband semi-retired to Scotland with his Scottish wife. We finally retired full time to the sunshine eight years ago.

katharine ignatieff purchased this apartment in 2008

Why katharine ignatieff chose Montauroux

For us it is magic. We hope it will be for you too!

What makes this apartment unique

We bought the house for the trees, the views and the old stones. Then we had to spend many months adding the pool, part of the annex, the pool house and the septic tanks! After that came the boule court and the gardens.

Beautiful property with a great pool and walking distance to village

  • 5 of 5

Katharine & Paul are incredible hosts with an incredible property. From check-in to check out it was a perfect experience. We loved the central location of the home, 30-40 minutes to the coast and 20-30 minutes up to the mountains with a beautiful river nearby. The home is perfect with comfortable beds and a great bathroom. The patio and the pool are beautiful with a great view. Katharine and her husband were extremely kind and helped answer any questions we had of the area. I couldn't recommend this property anymore, it's a slice of French countryside paradise.

A beautiful property in a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was everything we had hoped for. This is a stunningly beautiful property in a delightful situation with gorgeous pool. We are very grateful to the owners for all their kindness and for making our stay such a wonderful experience. It is peaceful and yet within easy reach of lots of activities. Our boys loved the pool, and the nearby lakes for swimming and paddle boarding. Everything you need is just a short day we had breakfast in France, lunch in Monaco and dinner in Italy!

If you are looking for your next holiday, look no further! Yes, it really is that good.

Garden of Eden - truly lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place - Catherine and Paul are great hosts who make you feel extremely comfortable and welcome. Their home, Quatremas, on top of a hill, offers a lush garden with all the plants the Provence has to offer, absolute tranquility, a big pool to enjoy and a great view. Their guest appartment is decorated with a lot of taste (and all the books which - if you have not read them already, you intend to read), a great terrace makes for enjoyable meals outside underneath a great tree, there is a grill, hammocks - everything you can wish for .... The village of Montauroux nearby is lovely and has good restaurants. This is just the place to relax and enjoy the beauties of Southern France and which we certainly will be revisting (and next time we will also venture out much more as there is so much to see and explore nearby)!

Owner's Response: They were the perfect guests. Made us appreciate living here all over again! Well behaved lads turned into dolphins. "Grandmother" even made delicious compote with our apricot harvest. Look forward to seeing them again.
