The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
There are local markets held in Nice, Vence and over the Italian border in Ventimillia.
There are many sporting activities in the area – golf, tennis, sailing, river bathing, kayaking, climbing, and fishing to name just a few.
With its close proximity to the surrounding, hilly countryside, this makes the apartment an ideal base for those who enjoy the outdoors, walking and cycling. The region is also well served by ski-stations in the winter, some of which can be reached within an hours drive.
Other attractions in the region are the Carnival of Nice, The Cannes Film Festival, The Monaco Grand Prix, the International Jazz Festival of Nice, The Classical Sailing Boats race of Cannes & Antibes, the summer open-air Opera Festival of Gattieres and Marineland in Antibes.
The apartments are also within easy reach of Nice International Airport and all that the Cote d'Azur has to offer.
“Gites des Chênes” are situated very close to the X11 Century, cliff top village of Carros, with its little pedestrian streets, immaculately kept houses, gift shop and restaurant. From here, you'll get sweeping views down the Var River valley to the sea.
There are further shops, restaurants, boulangeries and a supermarket in the town of Gattieres, approximately 5km away.

"Beautiful view, delightful hosts and very relaxing holiday"
Delightful place to stay. Our hosts Alfredo and Catherine were extremely helpful and welcoming. The facilities were functional and homely and the views were incredible. A joy to wake every morning. Having dogs the hosts were very helpful. They took us to the vet just before our return for their pre UK vaccination. They showed us where to do local walks. They also suggested places to visit, eat. Very Satisfied
Thanks for the review, we're delighted you enjoyed the accommodation and extended your stay! We look forward to welcoming you back - Team Joie de Vivre

"Beautiful and peaceful location with magnificent views"
We spent a very enjoyable and interesting few days in this lovely region in November 2010. Our hosts were so cordial and very generous with their time in providing helpful local information. We we found the accommodation very comfortable and clean with all our needs met and, in addition, it had such wonderful views. The one disadvantage for some might be that in order to access such spectacular mountain views, steps are almost a necessity and a certain fitness for transferring luggage. But heyho who wouldn't want to clamber up a few steps to enjoy this beautiful hideout. I do hope to be able to re-visit.
