The old violet farm: tranquil family villa, great sea views

Ref VAL609

This pretty south-facing villa used to be the old farm house where the violets of the region were collected before being sent to Grasse or Pont de Loup to be made into perfume.  Owned by a botanist, the house’s links to nature are continued through the Provençal furnishings with Toile de Jouy and flower fabrics complimenting the many flower and botanical artwork.

Positioned in an elevated position, the house has truly stunning panoramic views of the Cote D’Azur – both day and night – and is only 1 Km from the centre of medieval Tourrettes sur Loup. Popping into town takes just a couple of minutes in the car or a 20minute stroll.

Accommodating up to 6 people (3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms including 2 ensuite), this cosy property is peaceful and homely. The bedrooms are a good size and all have beautiful views – the master & 2nd bedroom have stunning views to Antibes and round to Nice in the east, and the 3rd bedroom opens onto a village & garden vista.

Downstairs, the living spaces are welcoming and full of provencal character. The eat-in kitchen is well equipped and the living / dining space has pretty soft furnishings, a large stone fireplace and plenty of space to entertain and relax. Patio doors open onto the long, shaded terrace (complete with barbeque) – the perfect spot for dinners al fresco. The pool is a couple of steps above the terraces and is surrounded by mature shrubs, making it very quiet and private.

The cottage garden is compact with plenty of mature Mediterranean shrubs, flowers, and olive & palm trees. Just the perfect spot for both adults and children to relax & enjoy the beautiful Provençal sunshine.
