The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Côte d'Azur, otherwise known as THE FRENCH RIVIERA, brings tradition together with modern comforts.
Though the French Riviera is often associated with luxury and eccentricity, it is also a land rich in heritage and culture.
Its large seaside walkways and its gorgeous bays of white sand giving onto the Mediterranean Sea have made the region an internationally renowned holiday destination.
From Saint Tropez to Monaco and Cannes, through tiny tucked-away villages like, Mougins, Valbonne and Mouans-Sartoux, the French Riviera is full of surprises just waiting to be discovered. You'll discover fascinating culture and delicious cuisine, a refined but relaxed lifestyle, and an exciting variety of events.
Whether you're a family looking to for sunny beaches and recreational activities, a couple looking to discover the charm of small towns and fishing ports, or friends looking to party all night in clubs and discos, the French Riviera is sure to surpass your expectations and Villa Dusett is in the centre of it all!
Mouans-Sartoux only 5 minutes from Villa Dusett is a mondernized Medieval village located on the flatlands between Grasse and Cannes. The old town (veille ville) is layed out in the Lerins style of symmetrical rectangles like that of nearby Valbonne.
"Mouans" is an active little town, with the lived-in old-town merging smoothly with the dynamic activities of the modern part of the town. Annual events Mouans-Sartoux has become known for include a book fair, pottery markets, winter santons exhibit and a modern multiplex cinema.
The old village only 5 minutes away from Villa Dusett, which has a large Anglophone population, has retained much of its 16th-century character, though mixed with an active town atmosphere. In contrast to the twisty little streets in the hundreds of other medieval villages of Beyond, Valbonne village is laid out in neat, symmetrical rectangles planned by the Abbot of Lerins, following the layout of Roman cities.
In the center of the village is the very lovely, 16th-century Place des Arcades. This central square is surrounded on all four sides by picturesque arcades, café terraces and little shops. The arcade at the "Hotel Les Armoiries" is engraved with a stone as "1628". Unfortunately, and unnecessarily, the square is also a parking lot for about 10 cars; not enough to be useful, but enough to spoil the view and the character of the square.
Dispersed through the little streets are more shops and a few, well-respected restaurants here and there. Our favorite is the Cadran Solaire on the rue Eugène Giraud (tel: (33) 493 12 13 30). For lunch or Sunday brunch try the Comptoir du Sud on rue Gambetta, at the edge of the old town.
At the bottom of the village, across the street below the rectangle of the center, is the 12th-century Eglise Saint Blaise, the attached Chalaisien Abbey (or "Ancien Couvent Chalaisien"), the Moulin des Moines (now a restaurant), and a very ancient-looking carved-stone monument. The Couvent Abbey is now being restored (June 1996), and is looking very smart.
Beside the village to the west, across the street, is a new, little shopping complex and a parking lot. It has at least one restaurant, newspaper shop, food and produce shops, and the post office is at the far end of the parking lot.
Mougins is without doubt one of the most wonderful places to visit on the Cote d'Azur. Only 15 minutes from Cannes and 5 minutes from Villa Dusett, this superb medieval village is set amongst pines, olives and cyprus trees.
Surrounded by forests (the Valmasque forest covers 427 hectares) Mougins has kept the quality of its environment intact, and offers visitors, from the height of 260 metres, a panoramic view of the "baie de Cannes", the Lerins islands, Grasse and the "Pre Alpes".

"A Lovely Property"
This is a unique property and the photos don't do justice to the actual grounds. We stayed for eight nights in Mid-February. Unfortunately, the weather took a turn for the worse about four days i… More
Villa Dusett is unique and have grounds of in total 3 800 square meters divided in to 2 parts. First, around the houses with 2 800 square meters and a separate ground of 1 000 square meters connected through a gate where you can play soccer etc. The Pool Area is around 200 square meters.
The pool 12 x 5 meters is heated during the period March to November. Villa Dusett always tries to give the tenants best possible service. But to heat a pool during winter when it is snowing takes time and Villa Dusett newer promise a heated swimmable pool during December to February.
Villa Dusett always send telephone number and e-mail address to the tenants to contact the property manager to set an arrival time at least 48 hours before arrival. If changes occurs we cannot guarantee that exactly the new required time will be possible, but we do our best to agree on the new preferred time for the tenant.
4. Heating and Air Condition
There are separate elements in all sleeping rooms and kitchens as well as floor heating in 2 bathrooms. Regarding Air condition – able to use as heaters – there are 5 units in total. 2 on the Old House and 2 in the Round House and 1 in the Atelier.
The Property is rented out since 2012 with approximately 20 tenants per year. Many of them are returning guests and they have been writing in the guest book that they love Villa Dusett as such and its surroundings. Most tenants arrive in mid-March to end of October.
6. Private items
In Villa Dusett the tenants are guests in the home of the owners. That means that the owners have chosen to keep a familiar touch on everything and accordingly they hope the tenants' fells more comfortable with the atmosphere. Of course there are some closets that are locked for the owners' private items, but it's a home tenants are visiting not a hotel. The tenants usually likes this but if you don't like this atmosphere you should not rent Villa Dusett.
In south of France and in Castellaras in particular there is a lot of problems with chalk in the water. Chalk is not dirt and when you use the dishwasher and washing machine you must use the anti-chalk tablets provided by Villa Dusett. Accordingly if not used, glasses will look “dirty” but its “only” chalk and not dirt. The property is cleaned 8 hours weekly for the houses and 6 hours for the garden.
Villa Dusett is a personalized place and it's filled with numerous antique, funny and for some people strange items like African and European hunting trophies. As mentioned it's more to be considered as hunting trophies than dead animals on the walls. If you as a tenant dislike hunting trophies on some walls you should not rent Villa Dusett. The owners are not having the property as a rental property bu its own means, is a home rented out to people who wants' to have a unique, relaxing and according to most of the tenant wonderful environment during their holiday.
9. Close to Nice, Cannes, Valbonne, Mougins and Mouans Sartoux
The environments and Villa Dusett is superb and there are some wonderful day trips to be made from Villa Dusett and according to the owners it's a five star vacation home, with emphasis on personality and home.
