The kitchen is small but functional with a dining table and four chairs in a provencal style (lavender blue).

There is heating throughout the house. Water and heating included in the price. We no longer provide linen and towels. Therefore please bring your own or rent from the blanchisserie in Menton opposit the post office. Thank you.

Further details outdoors

There are two parking areas outside the village – north and south side please use the south car park as it is nearer the house down the cobbled street as oppose to up hill from the north car park. There is no garden – very rare in Ste Agnes but you are surrounded by the Alpes which offers wonderful walks, cascades and lovely views! The medieval garden of Ste Agnes which is by the castle ruins offers privacy and calm amid beautiful surroundings.You can sit here for hours if you wish and on a clear day you can see the island of Corsica. From Ste Agnes one can walk the 4 kms down to Menton by foot path. The village is very safe as no cars or motor bikes are allowed inside the village. There is horse riding available for all ages in the village. For those who prefer a more easy going pace this area is a ramblers paradise - wonderful for picnics and a very romantic place to stay. The people of the village are very friendly and always willing to help.

The Provence region

From Cannes to Nice going through Antibes and Menton all the way to the Italian border this area provides the best of both worlds. The beauty and quiet of the beaches allows you to relax and unwind, yet you are close enough to the glizt and glamour of Monaco to access the shops and casinos.

Right in the north of the departement are the Alps with their snowy peaks and their sunny ski resorts, some within an hour's drive from the sea. This moutainous area , offers fabulous skiing in the winter months. You can take a train from Menton to Ventimiglia, change trains at Ventimiglia and continue on to Limone, Piemonte for some fabulous skiing. It cost 5 euros on the train - well worth the tour even if you don't want to ski. The scenary is out of this world!

Sainte-Agnes

Ste Agnes would attract people that enjoy a healthy environment. It is perched 700 meters up with breathtaking views. It is ideally placed. You can walk down the hill to Menton on foot (around 4kms away), or take the village bus (12km) to swim and sunbathe on the beaches! Menton is the main shopping town with daily markets. The under cover market in the old part of Menton is very good and close to some very good restaurants and cafes over looking the old harbour. From Menton there is easy access by public transport to Italy or Monaco, Antibe and Nice. There are also boat trips to Corsica in the summer. In the winter time as well as skiing in the Mercontour or Italy Menton offers a wonderful Christmas display of lights all through the various avenues. The Christmas decorations are really beautiful and the Christmas markets offer plenty of gastronomical delights to choose from. From the second week of February through to the first week of March there is in Menton the famous Lemon Festival, which is wonderful and attracts people from all over the world. This yearly event is well worth a visit.

From Ste Agnes there is a bus six times a day to Menton and seven times a day during July and August so a car is not really necessary. Ste Agnes is a pedestrianised medieval village set in the Alpes with views of the sea and mountains. It was awarded the rosette for being one of the prettiest villages in France.Ste Agnes has three restaurants, a creperie, three souvenir shops selling pottery cards and clothing, an art gallery and a grocery shop which is open six days a week.

Two seconds away from the house is a restaurant with a lovely terrace overlooking the mountains and the sea.Skiing available at Col du Turini which is 1 hour away.

Other activities nearby include paragliding sailing and diving In Menton. Also in Menton there are supervised clubs for children on the beaches which will keep them amused for hours and in the village there is horse riding trips through the alpes for all ages. Or if you prefer a more languid pass time walking through the alpes and bringing a picnics is lovely and you might just see the goat herder and his flock of goats. There are also plenty of natural source in the alpes providing beautiful mountain water to drink! There are plenty of seasonal fetes and festivals from March to October in the village.

"chicken soup for the soul"

Having always thought of the Cote d'Azur as a terribly touristy and over priced area, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there are still places where you can truly get away from it all and enjoy the magnificent scenery. The village itself has a few lovely shops, not any more expensive than Menton, in fact, I found the grocery store cheaper. There are events and concerts taking place in the summer months in St Agnes and other surrounding villages, so you are not in a cultural desert. The best restaurant is diagonally across the lane of the house with views over to the Mediterranean. The air is clean and the local water pure and drinkable. Many people have retired to St Agnes for health reasons. I went there to be on my own, to meditate, to relax and to feel part of the Universe again - something we lose sight of in urban environment. There are plenty of magnificent walks. That part of France is steeped in history. For those interested in WW2, one of the Maginot Line fortifications is in St Agnes, although it by no means interferes with the tranquillity of the place. Even a beach holiday is possible. There are bus connections to Menton and the trip only takes 15 minutes. You can return to the cooler conditions of St Agnes in the evening. There is a lot of climbing up and down in the village itself and also in the house. In fact, this sort of excercise is good for one's heart. The house itself is more or less in the centre. The bedroom on the 3rd floor is the largest. The living room below has also lovely views. Having been on my own I hardly used it, but is was a comfortable room. The kitchen and the bathroom are on the bottom of the rented area. All the necessities are in the kitchen and they are easy to operate. My only reservation would be that if you have elderly people in your company, constant climbing up and down in the house may be a bit trying. I had a truly magnificent holiday. Mrs Floyd took great care in sending me as much information as possible about the surroundings, bus and train timetables etc. She was a very thoughtful hostess who truly wants people to enjoy their stay in her beloved house.
