Request to Book

This architect-designed house, sleeping up 9, is part of a collection of private houses set in grounds with a chateau, tennis courts, two swimming pools and lovely gardens. Designed by Jacques Couelle, an apprentice to Antonio Gaudi, it is built like a tower over five floors and would be ideal for a family or two of children who aren’t fazed by stairs. It’s all arranged like a medieval village, with the houses and private gardens set around the chateau, which is on the top of a hill. We love the unique fairy tale feeling, the splendid surroundings and the terrace views over the Mediterranean and Alps. Cannes, Nice and the entire French Riviera are within easy driving distance.

We have two daughters ages 12 and 8, and a baby son. We love to travel and play local, so staying in a home is ideal! France, Italy, and California are just a few of our favorite destinations.

Mouans-Sartoux, French Riviera

Relaxing on the Riviera

Twenty minutes north of Cannes on the French Riviera, the medieval village of Mouans-Sartoux offers a charming, relaxing reprieve from the tourist crowds. Wander the cobbles admiring traditional buildings with colorful facades, enjoy art exhibitions in the meticulously landscaped grounds of the chateau or drive to Antibes, Cannes, Ramatuelle, or St. Tropez and rent a mattress and umbrella on the beach for the day.
