    How to get there
    Airport: Nice International Airport: 6.2 mi
    Railway: St Laurent du Var: 5.6 mi
    Fly into Nice using a budget airline such as Easy Jet, hire a car over the internet then drive along the R202 heading north, direction Dignes. Cross the bridge at La Manda, or when you see a large roundabout with yellow sculptures on it, take the exit marked Gattieres. The villa is located on the Route du St. Laurent, 650 metres from the village. Journey time, approx. 20 mins. from the airport of Nice International.

    In the summer time, Car Hire companies are extremely busy and there can be long delays. I would recommend you using a company called Sixt which is reasonable and has a base at Nice Airport. The queues are very much shorter than, say, Europcar, Budget, or Hertz.

We arrived at Le Contadour Saturday 24 May 2014 for a week’s stay and were welcomed by Liz and Quentin. The apartment, with stunning views of the Var, was completely self-contained, and with a double child’s room too, was perfect for a small family. We love to shop for fresh produce at local markets and cook local foods, so were... more

Management response:

We really enjoy meeting new clients and sharing a little time with them. The villa and its grounds are quite large which allows perfect privacy if one wants it; also, we always allow guests the privacy of the pool when they wish to use it. Our guests are correct in saying that we are central for everything on the Cote... more

Thank you for a lovely stay at Le Contador. We thoroughly enjoyed it and found it was the perfect base to travel round the Cote D’Azure. Liz and Quentin are fantastic hosts and the pool and bbq area are simply lovely and exclusive. Favourite trips had to be Menton (almost on the Italian boarder) and of course Monaco which is... more

Le Contadour is truly a home from home equipped with absolutely all that is needed. The views from the apartment are stunning at all times of day and the beautifully unspoiled village of Gattieres is a few hundred yards up the road - beautiful! Liz and Quentin were a delight - nothing was any trouble for them. We will most... more
