The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region

Sightseeing is endless; the nearest places of interest are the perfumeries of Grasse, Marineland at Antibes, the Festival of Cannes, the glass-makers at Biot, the potteries of Vallauris, the picturesque villages of Valbonne and Mougins and of course the beautiful countryside all around.

Other entertainment includes the beach, the casinos & night-life of Cannes, boat trips, cinemas, wine tasting, or just good old relaxing by the pool!


Local shops, a boulangerie, restaurants and a supermarket can be found just 500 metres away in the lovely old village of Plascassier. A wider range of facilities and restaurants can also be found nearby in the larger village of Mouans-Sartoux.

Local markets are held in Mouans-Sartoux every Tuesday and Thursday mornings and in Valbonne on a Friday morning.

Sporting activities in the area are abundant– there is golf, tennis and horse riding and as you are in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes, walking and cycling are also very popular.

Beaches can be found not too far away in Cannes and Antibes, approximately 15 km.

The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are approximately 1 hour’s drive away if you fancy a couple of days winter sports!

Getting around; there is a bus stop approximately 400 metres away from the gite and the train station of Mouans-Sartoux is approx 5km. The owner however insists that a car is essential from here.

"Gite Lily - a great place to stay!"

Although ideal for two people - we managed well with my Wife and myself, plus two adult children who joined us for the week. This was made possible by the attractive garden and lovely big swimming pool, enabling us to spend much of the day and evening outside. The Gite is well located for the coast and also for exploring Provence. The weather was very hot, but there are good air-conditioning units in both the living room and bedroom. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We recommend Gite Lily for a relaxing holiday in the South of France.

As can be seen by the positive remarks, the holidaymaker mistakenly gave the property 2 out of 5. He subsequently wrote: Hi Paul, Please award top marks – I have been inundated with requests for feedback for all sorts of things since returning from holiday and have not previously completed a Trip Advisor request – no doubt the reason for the error! Apologies – please do ask Trip Advisor to amend the score to show top of scale marks for Gite Lily. Many thanks.

"very relaxing"

Very satisfied. Beautiful interior and garden, big swimming pool, clean apartment furnished with taste, nice location, close to the sea and the mountains, very nice and helpful owners who provided us with the facilities and toys for our young baby. Calm and relaxing stay.
