Outstanding Provençal Villa with Spectacular Views
La Piccada is a beautiful Provençal villa with incredible views of the Baou and the Cagnes valley, leading down to the sea. In the distance you can see the famous village of St-Paul- de-Vence and the Cap d'Antibes.
La Piccada is set on a quiet lane with no through traffic. All bedrooms have south-facing views. Upstairs you’ll find the Terrace Bedroom, 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 and with glorious views.
Downstairs is the spacious living and dining room, with a natural stone wall, beams and a fireplace. It’s cool in the summer and cosy in winter. There’s a flatscreen TV with UK terrestrial channels. The kitchen is well equipped and leads out to a conservatory, a glorious winter suntrap.
The bedrooms downstairs are The White Room and The Garden Room, which leads out onto the newly-built sun terrace and garden. The downstairs bathroom is modern, with a shower, basin and loo.
The house has central heating for winter stays.
The Garden and Pool
Outside, the garden has typical Provençal terraces, with mimosa, orange, fig and persimmon trees. The pool is a spacious 5 x 10 metres and the adjacent pool house has both a charcoal and a gas barbecue, and is a wonderful spot for lunches and summer dinners.
For younger visitors there is a high chair and cot, as well as protective gates for all doors which lead out to the pool.
The Village of St Jeannet
La Piccada is a ten minute (uphill) walk to St Jeannet village, where there are two bakeries (one of which award-winning), two excellent restaurants, a terrific pizza place, a shop for rock climbers, a popular bar/café with panoramic views, a post office, a newsagent’s that stocks some English books and newspapers, a pharmacy and two food shops selling local produce, freshly-prepared dishes and delicatessen-style products. St Jeannet also has one of the last independent vineyards in the region, which produces white, rosé and red wines. Below St Jeannet village itself is the area known as Le Peyron, where there’s a supermarket, two bakeries, a pharmacy, a Thai restaurant, a newsagent’s and a bank.
Who Are We?
La Piccada is owned by a Danish family who have commissioned us to manage lettings on their behalf. We are an English couple who've lived next door for twelve years. We know the area well and can be on hand to offer advice on directions, attractions, restaurants and cycle routes. In short, we’re here to help if you want us, but you’re equally welcome to ignore us if you prefer!
