Our house is hidden in a beautiful valley in the hinterland of Nice, in Gattières. Surrounded by terraces and greenery and bordered by a small stream. Our little house opens onto a terrace protected by an olive tree where life is relaxed and quiet.

The space

The home environment is rather atypical, a private road takes you to the house. You are on a terrace overlooking a valley with several centuries' old an olive tree that protects you from the sun. Placed into the very heart of an hectare of greenery. In the background, small waterfalls sing Pagnol's novels.

Guest access

To the house and the swimming pool

Interaction with guests

We will be present upon arrival and departure, to welcome and introduce the house and surrounding area if necessary and if the tenants want.
We are available at any time for practical information and tourism.
Our tenants can reach us by phone, they will always have an answer and we will do our best to help. We travel often and understand the needs of travelers.

Other things to note

Our little cottage is simple, our house keeps the soul and memories of my childhood.

In simple terms...stay there. It's a lovely house in the middle of the countryside, high in the mountains with an amazing vista. It goes without saying that you need a car. It's only 15/20 mins to central Nice, a bit further to explore Monaco, Antibes etc. The pool is superb, modern and clean. Not huge but plenty big enough. We are a family of 4 and we found ourselves by the pool rather than going to the beaches. It's a rustic country house, not modern but has all the facilities you need to cook etc. My biggest complement goes to Isabelle and her husband Michele. Superb hosts. Great communication (in English) from the time we booked. Keen to help, offer advice and recommendations. Nothing was too much for them. If you wish to explore the Cote d'Azure then this is the place for you. Best of both worlds. Quiet and remote whilst being close enough to the bright lights. Perfect.

Lovely house in a beautiful spot. Really peaceful and relaxing place to be. The pool was great and a real retreat from the heat. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We had a good stay. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful with good communication. Thanks.

We had a great time at the house! We admired the quiet location, surrounded by nature but still a short drive from Nice. Isabelle and the husband were very attentive and made us feel very welcome.

Older style house in a hill town behind nice. Nice towns but if you are after beach and seaside towns it is quiet far away. Our kids got car sick every trip up the hill too. House was sufficient. Beds and linen old. Host not the best communicator and although she said the place was kid friendly she tried to get more money out of us for cleaning as the kids left finger prints on doors.... And we left the place extra clean, had already paid $155 cleaning fee and also took the rubbish to the town dumps. I would make sure you clear any extra fees with the hosts prior to booking

We offered extra to you: you booked for 5 people you came 7, we offered extra baby cot, we offered extra linen, we offered extra time, we offered welcoming coffee and fruit juice ( you did not even thank us) We never saw you, you told us a few hours before arriving that other people would be there, and we accepted to be helpful, how could we communicate with you but by sms ... We didn ´t even see you when you left, you told us the eve of departure that you won't be there too. We asked extra fee you did not pay for extra cleaning that is not included in the 100 euros fee included in the house renting because you left the house very dirty : Chewing gum and greasy hands on armchairs and sofa material. Bathtub showers and toilets very very dirty and greasy fingerprints everywhere. As we offered extra we thought you should have left the house extra clean as you dare write you left it. You did not mention when you booked there would be 3 children 1-2-5- years old, as we love children we wanted to be helpful and we kindly offered extra...but you haven't been fair. The house is at 15 minutes from the beach by a lovely countryside road. The house is an old and charming and very clean family house, the linen is washed, sun dried, and ironed and no more than 4 years old. We are so sorry you black mail us about reporting lies on Airbnb, we do not have the same way of life and thincking. Isabelle

Ma famille, lire, peindre, imaginer, chiner, transformer, voyager, connaitre et découvrir nos différences et nos similitudes, dans le respect de chacun sont des incontournables indispensables dans ma vie. Tout est unique pour moi de l'être à l'instant, les généralités me gênent. Ma maison est mon havre, le seul endroit où je me ressource. Je vous souhaite d'en profiter au mieux pour vous.
