About Ms Penelope Burns

I teach yoga, meditation and holistic healing systems. During off season months I provide relaxing, regenerating and uplifting retreats in my home for individuals or small groups. I enjoy visits from my daughters, who grew up here, other family members and friends. During the rental season I often travel to expand my own training and experience. Private sessions of yoga and meditation can be organised during your stay.

Ms Penelope Burns purchased this villa in 2005

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.

Villa is Ideally suited to couples who are looking for a romantic holiday away from it all yet close to attractions. The house is built on a hill which provides the beautiful views but younger children or older adults may find the steps difficult to negotiate. The pool and sun terrace have been recently built in the front of the house facing the sun and the views.

Welcoming in all respects. Charming hostess and wonderful environment.

  • 5 of 5

All ready and in excellent order when we arrived. Very pleasant welcome and a hostess who knows the Cote d'Azur intimately and gives great advice on where to go and what to see. Very comfortable rooms and fabulous garden. Can even take in the great views lying on your back in the pool. Will definitely go again.

Stunning views and a real haven

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely property. The views from the terrace are breathtaking and mesmerising. The house is lovely everything you could need. The pool is fantastic too. Penny the owner is really lovely and she really helped us with an issue we had with an earlier property and actually saved the day for us, by letting us book at short notice - thank you. Penny is very knowledgeable on the area too and key places to visit. She's a very special lady. I would highly recommend this property and we hope to return. Thank you Penny for an amazing stay.

A comfortable, relaxing fortnight

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, comfortable house of character with a lovely view. It was a delight every morning to open the shutters and sit in the sunshine on the veranda. We found plenty of places to visit within easy reach, alternating our outings with lazy days relaxing at the house and enjoying the pool. We ate out several times both locally in Grasse and further afield - Nice and Menton - and were lucky every time with the restaurants we chose.

Wonderful home with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Penny's lovely home for a week and had a very relaxing time. The house is set in a very tranquil environment with amazing views. I'm also a big hiker and walker and was pleased to find a good walking trail behind her house - definitely worth a visit.

The house itself is beautifully decorated and really felt like a home away from home. Even though it was still a little chilly I did also give the pool a try!

Thanks Penny for a lovely stay.

Blue Sky was the perfect place to relax and experience the magic of Provence and the Cote d'Azure

  • 5 of 5

Blue Sky was a fantastic place to relax for all the family. It provided the perfect combination of swimming, sunbathing and spacious accommodation to suit the sunny and hot weather of Provence. It was a great setting for the family to be together, well-equipped and a good location from which to visit the many sights of Provence including:- the stunning hill-top villages of Gourdon and Castellan; as well as touring the historic towns of Grasse, Vence and Nice where there were lots and lots of good restaurants to choose from. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Blue Sky to others.

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.
