If you want an extremely well equipped apartment near a typical French village overlooking Nice with stunning views, Le Contadour is for you. Liz and Quentin were perfect hosts and could not have been more helpful. The Villa is easy to find and is just a short walk 5 minute walk to the lovely medieval village of Gattieres where you...

Where to start when you've had such an amazing holiday! Firstly the accommodation is exactly as per the pictures - beautiful apartment/villa with the most gorgeous well kept gardens. We had fresh lemons from the lemon tree every day and rosemary, parsley and mint for cooking - it's a cooks paradise especially as the villa has a "home from home"...

We were delighted to receive such lovely comments from our last guests. It was an absolute pleasure to have an opportunity to get to know them and to share precious moments with them.

About the neighborhood
Gattieres, is a medieval perched village, which has hardly changed since the 12th century, and only 20 MINS FROM NICE! It has all that one could require whilst on holiday, from a renowned bakery which provides even for the House of Monaco to excellent restaurants with regional, provencal menus.
In July, a well-known professional opera performs in the open squares of the village. Gattieres, is centrally situated to visit the famous coastal resorts of Monaco, Nice, Cannes, or St. Tropez. Numerous festivals take place in the Nice area from famous jazz festivals, in the summer, to carnivals in the winter months. For more details see: www.whatsonwhen.com and look up the Nice area.

For the active, there is sailing, swimming, golf, tennis, fishing, climbing, walking, visiting the many museums a...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Nice International Airport: 6.2 mi
Railway: St Laurent du Var: 5.6 mi
Ferry: Nice Marina: 7.5 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. When you see a large roundabout with yellow sculptures on it, take the exit marked Gattieres. Follow the road signs to 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. You might find renting a GPS will make easy travelling.
