Turning inland, you have the hills and forests where the Route Napoleon begins, considered by some as one of France's most beautiful drives for its fabulous scenery and views. Down a quiet road near Grasse you'll discover the Villa des Cygnes, with direct access to the forest of the 'Route Napoleon.' Revel in breathtaking sunrises over the Southern Alps and peaceful sunsets beyond the Esterel Mountains.
Set within a 5000m2 garden dotted with aromatic citrus trees and olive trees, this sophisticated Provençal mas offers numerous terraces, some shaded, for meals that linger. Delightful palm trees surround the pool area providing beauty and shade for long hours of relaxation. A lounge area by the pool offers a hammock for lazy afternoons by the pool. The villa is air-conditioned throughout.
Recently renovated, the design is minimalist yet comfortable. Beauty is radiated through colour, the ample use of wood, and functionality. Everything radiates warmth and a distinct homely coziness.
