We stayed for a week. Fantastic location feeling secluded but close enough to groceries and bakers etc, with restaurants in easy reach. Good connections by road to Nice and inland to mountains. Pam and Patrick were very welcoming and keen to ensure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. There are two chalets set in the olive terraces on the edge of the owners property, the pool is shared between the two chalets. Whilst basic, the chalet had everything we needed and some really nice touches and plentiful hot water for showers. Perfect evenings spent sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine, feeling like we were in a tree house, listening to cicadas and watching fire flies floating through the dusk. more

I stayed at La Cigale with my partner. The place is a studio cabin in the woods. On arrival we were met by Pam the owner. She couldn't have been more gracious and sweet. She really cared about making sure everything was fine for us. The cabin itself is basic but comfortably fits a couple looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We had just come from spending 4 days at the Cannes film festival and this was the perfect antidote.

The scenery is incredible. There are a lot of walking or hiking routes that can be. I did one in the rain and it was still a marvellous experience. Whilst seemingly remote the cabin actually lies between a few french villages. All have there own 'vibe' with some walkable, but all are only 5 minutes drive.

We hired a car during our stay so the day we did decide to leave the lovely surrounding we took ma 20minute drive to Eze. This had the most fantastic 'Jardin Exotique'. We chose to do this but most of the southern cost...
