Perfect for four people or a couple, but can if necessary accommodate up to six + a baby, by arrangement with the owners.

    The large terrace offers a stunning view of what's renowned as one of the most beautiful bays in the entire Mediterranean, while inside the apartment offers the ultimate in comfort. An added bonus is that very few people know the loft even exists. It is invisible from below or above; an idyllic hideaway.

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Large picture windows (with shutters) allow the beautiful and invigorating Mediterranean light to flood into the loft-style interior, with its luxury fittings; the fully-equipped Italian designed kitchen, the 'Moroccan' area, the cosy seating and dining areas and the atmospheric bedrooms, all set off by local and Mediterranean art and cooled or heated by an efficient air conditioning system.

    For added entertainment there is a large Plasma screen, with English speaking satellite TV (BBC & ITV footprint just reduced to the French Riviera; we are working on that) and a DVD player.

    The apartment is best suited for 4 guests. However, since there are two double beds in the large 2nd bedroom, it can accommodate 2 more if desired; possibly children. A screen (provided) can be placed...

A quiet sunny terrace that is... more
