    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    This lovely c18th stone olive farm was purchased 10 years ago by its English owners. When let, the owners move to a smaller property on the edge of the estate and guests of 'La Bastide' are guaranteed total privacy for their holiday. While great care has been taken to preserve its original character, new features including a heated Roman style plunge pool with warm water spa, and home cinema have been incorporated to create a unique paradise retreat. At an altitude of 600 meters, the property comprises almost 5 acres of unspoiled countryside ideal for hikers, ornithologists, and nature lovers. Although only a few minutes from Nice, privacy and tranquility are guaranteed as the property can only be accessed by forest tracks, one leading to Aspremont and Tourrette Levens, one to Fali... more

    Additional amenities & feature info
    The Bastide is traditionally furnished and the accommodation is typical of a provençal farmhouse. The large bathroom is equipped with a power shower and antique bath tub from a chateau in Provence. Water is drawn from our own mountain source.

    Full gas central heating is available in the winter months. There is also a superb home cinema fully equipped with surround sound located in a vaulted cave beneath the main house. As this is our home that we only let seasonally, clients are welcome to enjoy our large collection of music CDs, books and films on DVD. Larger groups have the option of renting 'La Cigale', a small, self contained, independent property on the estate.

We spent a week at Olive Farm in August this year. After a hair raising first drive along the mountain road we arrived to a lovely welcome from our hosts. Olive Farm has everything that you would need for a holiday. The kids especially enjoyed the cinema room and the plunge pool which was always used after a day out... more

We had a lovely holiday at La Bastide. Pam and Patrick were so kind and helpful, always on hand for advice, restaurant bookings, directions and helping us with a problem we had with our car. The house is situated amongst olive trees with breathtaking views of the nearby village of Tourrette-Levens and its hilltop castle which houses an amazing insect... more

If you're looking for somewhere peaceful, picturesque, relaxing and with character to explore the French Riviera from (that's good value for money too) then look no further. Pam and Patrick own a beautiful house that's off the beaten track and suited us (two married couples) perfectly for a week of relaxing and exploring. Be warned, The Olive Farm is not... more
