The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
Sightseeing is endless; you have Gourdon in the mountains, Chateauneuf de Grasse, St Paul de Vence, all totally different but quaint villages. You can visit Antibes to see the super yachts & Cannes for the shops. Monaco – just to see Monaco. You also have just after Nice the walk around Cap-Ferrat and the light house on the Cap.
Other entertainment includes shopping, the casinos & nightlife of Cannes, Juan Les Pins, boat trips to the Isles de Lerins, cinemas, wine tasting, helicopter rides or just good old relaxing on the beach!
The Valbonne area
Local shops, a large super market, snack restaurant, boulangerie for those croissants, pharmacy and doctors and dentist and little snack restaurant which serves great pizza – all within walking distance between 0.7 and 1km. There are many restaurants in Valbonne just 5 km away or in the neighbouring villages of Roquefort les Pins, Opio or Biot.
Local market is held every Friday in Valbonne with fruit and vegetables and a great selection of local fair, plus anything you may want for souvenirs or ‘cool’ clothing.
Sporting activities, if you like to be active there is hiking literally next door to the domain and tennis within the domaine. There is also local horse riding centres in Opio, mountain biking in the Valmasque Park 20 minutes away and the area around is good for cycling.
Beaches can be found 9 km away in Antibes, Cannes and Mandelieu with all types of water sports available.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are between 1-2 hour’s drive away, and Greoliere 45 minutes, if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!
Getting around is very easy from here. You have a bus stop 1 minute from the house with inexpensive buses to Cannes. Train services from Biot station 6km away take you to Monaco and Nice (so do the buses but you’ll need to change). A car is not totally essential but would provide an easier option to explore the area.
