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 can buy your breakfast from the Boulangerie or supplies from the Intermarche. If you go...

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" feel, well stocked with utensils. Some apartments you go to feel very plain and tacky...

We stayed here with our toddler, and had an amazing holiday. The location is between the coast and the mountains, 20 mins drive to either, so amazing for exploring. We also spent time just relaxing at the villa which was so lovely. With very young children you do need to keep an eye on them because of stone steps and the pool, but this wasn't a problem. The hosts are a great couple who are...

We try to provide everything that a guest would need for their stay... and more! We are always conscious of the fact that although it is our home, it is also a special holiday location chosen...

Car advised
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.<BR><BR>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.
