Le Petit Blason
Studio | No Bedrooms | sleeps 2
Le Petit Blason is a spacious (35 m2) and very charming studio with sweet terrace situated in the heart of the old village.
Accessed through a wooden door with welcoming heart off a small passageway, you arrive directly onto the covered terrace (12m2) of this little gem apartment. Decorated with Provencal style furniture and plenty of attractive blooming plants – there is a table and chairs where you can enjoy your meals or a glass of wine in the balmy summer air. Although the terrace is covered, keeping the studio cool in summer, it allows you to spend time outdoors without being in the direct Cote d'Azur sun. There is an opening to the right of the terrace which gets the sun should you wish to take a few rays, as well as glass rectangular openings in the terrace ceiling which allows the sunshine to shine through. Perfect shaded outdoor space in high summer yet offering a sunny corner. On the left you will find a small area where you can prepare food for al fresco dining – an electric girdling plate is provided.
The living quarters can be found through a wrought iron gate and wooden door where you arrive directly into a large vaulted, white room with pretty window on your right. The double bed (170 x 200cm) stands before you on an oriental rug adding a blast of colour – the bed can also be conveniently separated into 2 single beds. The studio is large and very well equipped with plenty of cupboard space, a table and chairs, a bookcase, comfy wicker chair and a television (French channels) from where you can also access the internet. The kitchen has a fridge, kettle, toaster, 2 hot plates, microwave, coffee machine, wine rack, spices and a breakfast bar, as well as all the utensils and crockery you will need. The bathroom is simple and clean with white tiles, a large mirror, bath with shower and w.c.
A DVD player and radio have also been added for your enjoyment and there is an alarm clock. Le Petit Blason is a total delight, tastefully decorated with curious art pieces and details throughout – very thoughtfully put together to offer you an ideal and very comfortable base whilst staying on the French Riviera.

The charming, fortified medieval village of Haut de Cagnes is the oldest district of Cagnes sur Mer – ideally situated between Nice and Antibes and only a short car journey from Nice Côte d'Azur International Airport and within walking distance to the sea.
Here you are close to a boulangerie for warm fresh bread each morning and an excellent selection of restaurants for great dining. Local food markets, shops and outdoor cafes are all nearby. The area provides a perfect hopping on point to multiple destinations and attractions with its excellent rail and bus services.
Crowned with the original Grimaldi Castle, this enchanting medieval village with charming cobbled streets and remarkable ancient buildings transports you back in time to the 13th Century. The serenity and simplicity found in these pretty French villages allows you to enjoy the sun, sea and breath-taking views in a very relaxed atmosphere. Known as the 'Montmartre of the French Rivieria', Haut de Cagnes was the haunt of Renoir, Modigliani, Soutine, Yves Klein, Bardot and Cocteau. It's easy to see why many famous artists lived or found their inspiration here, falling in love with the soft Mediterranean light and honest authenticity.
But this charming, perched village has so much more to offer, with its tiers of tiny streets, climbing soft stone walls and colourful houses bursting with history. On the main street and Place du Château, there are plenty of bustling restaurants and cafés plus numerous historical cultural events and colourful festivals are held during the year.
A short stroll down the hill will bring you to the town of Cagnes, which provides all amenities such as a boulangerie, a patisserie, a supermarket, post office, the main bus square and a wonderful covered food market. Close to the town centre lies the Renoir Museum, the Hippodrome for horse racing and Cros de Cagnes – the seaside resort of Cagnes sur Mer with its private and public beaches.
There is so much you can do without a car, such as; shopping in Cannes, people watching in St Tropez, perfume sampling in Grasse, gambling in Monaco, lunching in Italy and buying art in St Paul – all easily accessible and inexpensive with most bus journeys costing only 1€50. Or if you prefer to cycle along the coastline to Nice or Antibes by bike, bike hire is rarely far away.
No 44 is a free navette, which runs up to the medieval village every 15 minutes from the town centre of Cagnes at Square Bourdet (the central bus station). It is ideal if you have luggage or shopping bags or when the weather is hot – it travels right up to the Château with a few strategic stops on the way.
