The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Cote d'Azur (or French Riviera) has long been one of the great attractions of France, for the glamour, sunshine, beaches and sophistication of resorts such as Nice, Saint-Tropez and Cannes - a reputation that is well earned, the Cote d'Azur is a lovely region to explore, with many less known gems to discover among the more famous.
The massive 1720 church is the center-piece of the village, surrounded by terrace cafés, shops, post office and fountain. The fountain, by the way, is an interesting green metal rather than the usual stone, and dates to 1868.
On the side of the village behind the church, neatly parallel streets between the medieval-style houses run up to the 12th-century Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-la-Sardaigne and cemetery. The chapel is actually inside the cemetery, and the graves on either side of the entrance host gigantic cypress trees, attesting to the age of the site.
The parallel streets on this side are wide enough for cars, but the houses are still old and very lovely. On the Rue de l'Egalité, leading up towards the cemetery from directly behind the church, a house along the left has some gigantic fossils cemented to the rough-stone front.
On the side of the village in front of the church and above the cliffs, the streets are narrower and more winding. The signs for "Point de Vue" take you past the Place de la Liberté with its huge horse-chestnut tree and along the "Voie Romaine". The viewing point is the "Place du 8 Mai 1945", a terrace (with a single olive tree and a panoramic table) along the top of the cliffs with a magnificent view into the deep Siagne valley below and out across the forested hills to the west and north.
Also on this side of the village is the 14th-century château, with the Mairie (city hall) in the château. Parts of the ancient fortification walls can be seen, some integrated into the Mairie, and two of the old 14th-century "portes" are along the cliff side of the village.
On the road leading off the center towards the Grottes de St. Cézaire you can see the end of the large "lavoir". Just around the bend is a nice long "boules" area, lined with shady plane trees.

"Best holiday rental so far!"
We spent one week in this lovely, spotless house, together with another family. Two families of a total of 8 persons - and the house was perfect size for us.
Barely 10 minutes by foot from the beautiful village of St Cezaire sur Siagne, where we bought fresh bread every morning. The hosts, Robert and Christine provides the best service and had even bought some fantastic local produce from the food market in Ventimiglia in Italy for our late arrival on the Saturday night. They are there for you if anything happens, like the power problems we had after at crazy thunder storm one night. Robert was on the premises almost as we were on the phone to tell him about the problems. They provide great info and tips on where to eat and what to see in the area - and they just give you the feeling of being so welcome! The pool and outdoor grounds are spotless all the time, and inside - where we did not spend much time as the weather was great - you have a nice kitchen with a side-by-side freezer/fridge with an icemaking machine. Great for those hot days! The kitchen has all you need to make the best meals at home - as well as Weber barbeque just outside. The porch is lovely for enjoying lunch in the shade or those wonderful evenings, in the air filled with flower scents.
And there is a stunning view all the way down to Cannes!
There is also plenty of parking space outside, as we did test this with our two full sized vans parked at all times (car rental had made a mistake and had no normal sized cars left...) The house is right in the middle of everything - a short drive from all the places you want to visit in Provence.
We have rented holiday houses domestically in Norway and several places abroad, but this is by far the best place we have rented - both because the house has all the facilities you need, and because it is unusually spotless and the hosts make you feel so at home in their home. We were adviced to stay here by friends, and they again were adviced by friends.... Our friends had to stay in another house in the area this year, as we had booked Villa Alexandra during the same week. They have now already booked Villa Alexandra for next summer... :-) Needless to say - this is a place you need to book far in advance. We will be back!
Thank you so much of your nice letter.
We were very happy having you home and you are always welcome

"Great house and wonderful host"
The owner was extremely helpful in making our stay memorable. The house and facilities are very good and done to a high standard. St Cezaire is a lovely little town to use as a home base for exploring the Area.
The fast uncapped wifi made our lives a lot easier. I will gladly recommend this villa to friends.
Thank you so much . You remain in our hearts and hope we will meet you one day in you beautiful country.
Never forget that you may visit us at anytime you have a home here in France . And that's as FRIENDS and not as renters.
Ok ... Merci ... A bientot ...

"Beautiful house with large pool and nice view of the sea"
All three families enjoyed holiday in beautiful house and the very special view of the sea. The children liked the large pool and they don't wanted to go the sea anymore. Also the village was nice with all the restaurants and coffee shops.
