Why Ms Penelope Burns chose Cannes - Grasse - Antibes

This location provides a peaceful and beautiful environment with magnificent views of hills and sea. It feels away from it all yet is so close and equidistant from all the major attractions of the cote d'Azur

What makes this villa unique

As it is my home the villa is well decorated and has a friendly, peaceful and welcoming atmosphere. It is equipped with Sky TV, WIFI and a variety of books, music and dvd's. It is a comfortable place to stay at all times of year.

Scenic views and charming, spacious accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We went as a family and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. A car is essential but there is a very good bus service from the village which is very reasonably priced (1.5 euros regardless of the journey length). The location of the villa high up on the hillside provides spectacular views of the valley below. we enjoyed our evenings spent on the balcony watching the sunset.

Paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many properties over the years, and this was by FAR the nicest I have ever stayed in.

So long as you have transport, this is a perfect location for exploring all that the region has to offer.

Everything we needed was here, the house was immaculate and so much nicer (as someone's home) than a cheaply furnished rental property would be.

The pool is glorious and the whole place has a magical and peaceful feel to it, such a special place to relax and chill out.

Blue Sky Villa nr Grasse, South of France

  • 4 of 5

Blue Sky is perfectly situated to explore the entire cote d'Azur, close to all the main attractions (Monaco is 1 hr, Nice 25 mins, Grasse 10mins by car in August!) yet situated on a calm and tranquil hillside with what must be the best panoramic view in the entire South of France. We stayed for 2 weeks with our teenaged son and our older son and his girlfriend. The Studio accomodation provided excellent additional privacy and was delightful, whilst the facilities in the main villa were super, particularly Sky TV during the Olympic Games! The pool was perfect, especially after a hot and busy day's sighseeing and their are plenty of quiet and shady places to sit and read etc and a BBQ. The villa felt like a real 'home from home'. There were a good variety of restaurants close by and in Grasse (we particularly liked Les Trois Garcons on the main road into Grasse) and two very decent supemarkets less than 10 minutes by car. We particularly enjoyed trips to Antibes, the Gorges du Loup and days at the Lac de St Cassein, which has decent facilities and is not busy. The property was exactly as pictured/described on the website and Penny was very helpful and patient throughout the whole booking process. We would not hesitate in recommending this villla to friends and family.

The perfect relaxtion holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this villa, it was lovely place to relax and unwind, with the lovely views to see miles around.

Although a car is essential as it is a very steep climb to the villa, there are a lot of towns to explore in close proximity and Grasse is only a 10 minute drive away.

We stopped at the villa with our 3 teenagers and they all loved the villa as much as us especially the lovely pool.

Week in June 2010

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week at Penny's villa, with my wife Helen and her mother explored the local area, lots to see and do and not too busy at this time of year. Penny was around for the first few days in the studio so was most helpful in detailing the local sights and helping us find our feet and we loved the villa and all the pictures around and the views of the landscape are memorising especially while having breakfast on the patio. By far the best holiday in France we have ever had and would certainly go again as there was lots we didn't get to see as we also wanted to relax in the tranquail setting and would have got Penny to teach us some mediatation or yoga if she hadn't had to leave for a course she was booked to do. It is a really relaxing place to come back to in a really nice part of France, highly recommend it to anyone. The market in Valbonne was really good as were the restaurants in the main square, which is only a few miles down the road. The propery was spotless and we couldn't fault the service at all.

The Italian Riviera is an hours drive away.Scattered on the hills close by are many beautiful old hill villages such as Valbonne, Biot, St Paul de Vence overflowing with Art from all over the world and wonderful little restaurants. Also close by is the dramatic 13th century castle and hill village of Gourdon perched high up on a mountain with breathtaking views of the hills and sea. 3kms down the road is Grasse full of history and old buildings and home to the perfume industry and the mountains of the Tanneron with many plantations, spectacular views and very rural atmosphere.
