La Casa del Sol - 2624
About the home
La Casa del Sol is a spacious and comfortable apartment in the upper floor of the owner's villa (under the eaves) set within pretty grounds.
The apartment benefits from its own large private pool and the lovely poolside dining area with barbecue is a firm favourite with all guests.
Located in the cooler hills above Nice and surrounded by picturesque villages such as Châteauneuf-Villevieille, Contes, and the medieval village of Luceram, it is a great base from which to explore and with 3 to 4 buses a day to Nice from the village (1€/journey) you won't need to worry about parking.
Berre les Alpes is itself perched on the hilltops, offering remarkable panoramic views over the Férion mountain range, the Mediterranean sea, Mont Agel, and the Massif de l'Authion. Mont Bègo can also be seen with Argentera in the distance. The ancient grey rocky hills are dotteed with Olive groves, Sweet Chestnut and pine trees, and the paths lined with mimosa.

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
The Cote d'azur stretches along the warmest coastline of France from Provence to the Italian border.
The beaches from pebble to fine sand are well maintained and some 'private' offer extra facilities, bars and restaurants for a whole days comfortable seaside lounging! Gastronomy is at its best catering for some of the most prestigious clients but offering many choices of restaurant all along the coast.
The bustling cities of Cannes and Nice contrast to the small and still authentic perched villages on the hilltops, and other smaller towns offer quiet corners with dotted villas and yet still most interesting town centres alive with artistic history and tradition.
Further north the terraced hillsides lead up into cooler parts and the Alps can be seen towering above. Hiking and walking as well as many watersports on the lakes will be amongst activities here away from the busier coasts.
