Set in a private and lush family estate featuring the guests' villa and a 13th-century fortress next to it, Bastide des Remparts is a unique and historical home in a privileged position on the French Riviera with wonderful views over the ancient trees stretching down towards the sea and just half an hour from Nice (and only 15min from Nice airport).

A lush and peaceful paradise, the family 8.5 hectare estate is one of the Côte d’Azur’s oldest and most beautiful properties, surrounded by captivating landscapes and glorious gardens were you can get lost for hours discovering it's hundreds of palm trees, ancient olive trees and colourful flowers.

The bastide dates back to 1836 and enjoys a spectacular hilltop location where you can look out towards the Mediterranean as far as Cap d’Antibes and Cap Ferrat. Inside you will find an elegant home which has been beautifully refurbished to provide seven delightful bedrooms, decorated and furnished with refined taste and character throughout. Downstairs the living and dining rooms have French doors opening up to Provençal gardens and there are wonderful spaces to relax outside including a truly remarkable al-fresco dining area where you can feast with family and friends in the shade of a 250-year old oak tree.

Follow the path through the gardens down to the inviting, large swimming pool where you can cool off from the warm summer sun or laze on the poolside terrace and pool house with mesmerising views of the surrounding gardens and sea.   

Guests will be welcomed with a complimentary case of Crus Classés wine. You may also arrange a private tour of the estate's 13th century fortress and gardens whilst special drink receptions or dinners can be set up on the ramparts for a memorable event. You have full access to the château’s gardens and the ramparts, which is just a 1-minute walk from the villa.

The estate is part of a charming hilltop village, Villeneuve Loubet, where you will find flower filled lanes, restaurants, a bakery and a butcher as well as a Provençal market twice a week. From the estate’s gate you can follow a 3km path down the hill through the woods to reach the beaches of Villeneuve Loubet and a seaside resort with family-friendly activities, restaurants, watersports and a marina.

Set between Cannes and Nice, the entire Côte d’Azur can be reached such as the seaside towns of nearby Cagnes-sur-Mer and Antibes as well as hillside villages including artistic St Paul de Vence and Grasse, known for its perfume heritage and fields of lavender amongst olive groves and vineyards. Heading further towards the rugged interiors will bring you the Gorges du Loup where you can swim from the rocks or head to Gourdon for spectacular views of the French Riviera.

Points to note:

  • Air-conditioning is only featured in the four first-floor bedrooms. 
  • The English-speaking gardener (and his well-behaved dogs) lives on the estate and he will welcome you on arrival. The dogs can be kept in a fenced field if required by guests (on request).
