Perched on the hillside near Grasse, with far-reaching, panoramic views of both the mountains and the dazzling French Riviera, Villa des Cygnes is a contemporary renovation of a traditional bastide with Scandinavian style interiors. Set within a 5000m² garden dotted with aromatic citrus trees and olive trees, this sophisticated luxury villa offers numerous terraces and outdoor lounge areas, all perfect for relaxing on a warm summers day and watching breath-taking sunrises over the Southern Alps.
Delightful palm trees surround the pool area and provide beauty as well as a perfect balance of sun and shade for those looking for long hours of relaxation and lazy afternoons by the pool. The design of the villa is minimalist, yet comfortable and cosy and all three spacious bedrooms feature a low-slung, Scandinavian style double bed and ensuite bathroom. Each bedroom also benefits from direct access to a south-facing balcony with dramatic views of the Riviera. The villa is air-conditioned throughout.
Turning inland, the hills and forests where the ‘Route Napoleon’ begins can be found. Winding through the spectacular mountains of Provence and running some 200 miles between the Cote d’Azur and Grenoble, this road is considered by many as one of France's most beautiful drives due its fabulous scenery and outstanding views. The ‘Route Napoleon' can also be enjoyed on horseback or on foot, with hikes through the mountain landscape in abundance.
