Outstanding Provençal Villa with Spectacular Views
The villa La Piccada is located in St Jeannet, just 25 minutes from Nice Airport. St Jeannet is a discreet medieval village once loved by artists such as Chagall, Dufy and Matisse, drawn no doubt by the Baou, the distinctive mountain under which the village nestles.
La Piccada comprises four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with two additional beds available if required. All bedrooms are sunny and light with stunning views. There is a 5x10m swimming pool, a pool house equipped with both a gas and a charcoal barbecue, several sunny terraces and a garden with orange, fig and persimmon trees, which guests are naturally welcome to enjoy when in season.
On the top floor you’ll find the Terrace Room, a large double bedroom with twin beds (90 x 200) and a private terrace. Adjacent is the retro bathroom with original flamboyant fittings and a separate WC. Next comes the Versailles Room, fit for a king – the original owner had extravagant tastes and subsequent owners haven’t had the heart to change them – guests think they make La Piccada unique and add a sense of fun.
Downstairs you’ll find a spacious living and dining room with a natural stone wall, beams and a log fire, and beyond that is the well-equipped kitchen and a conservatory. There are two further bedrooms, The White Room and The Garden Room, which has French windows leading out to the garden and the newly-completed sun terrace, which leads to the pool. All beds except for the Terrace Room are 140 x 200cm. The bathroom on this floor is newly equipped with a shower and modern fittings. There is unlimited free WiFi access throughout the property.
La Piccada is ideally situated for groups of cyclists, hikers and climbers, with plenty of storage space in the garage for bikes and outdoor equipment.
