The Bastide St Jean was once the home of a local perfume factory owner. The property and gardens served as a laboratory of aromas, using the scents which naturally surrounded the house including lavender, jasmine and bougainvillea, which today claim the old stone walls of the Bastide as their own. Today the gardens remain a sensory celebration, a combination of rose gardens, dotted with lemon, orange, apricot and bergamot trees, olives and figs, pear and peaches, and borders of agapanthus and rosemary.
Just a ten-minute stroll from the restaurants And boulangerie of Mougins village, the Bastide St Jean has views over rose-filled terraced gardens to the bay of Cannes. Adjacent, a swimming pool and fully-equipped summer house is flanked with a bougainvillea-draped orangerie and shaded dining terrace.
A light-filled formal salon, with Louis XV fireplace and separate study opens through French doors onto the surrounding dining terrace.
A master bedroom on the first floor has views to the bay of Cannes, a separate dressing room, and a large en-suite bathroom with circular bath with rain shower, and views overlooking the bay. A separate child's bedroom is adjacent.
Further bedrooms running along the Lower Ground Floor, have en-suite bathrooms and open onto the swimming pool (which can be heated - extra) and surrounding terraces.
