An intimate hideaway, inspired garden design creates areas of sheer beauty
Situated 500 metres above sea level of La Baie de Cannes, bordering protected woodland. Within walking distance to Cabris village and good choices of restaurants. Only 40 km from Nice airport.
Beautifully maintained in a relaxed style, Les Geais welcomes you to enjoy its peaceful ambience. The Salon with dining area, a well equipped working kitchen and small independent ‘Woodshed’ Guest Cottage all have direct garden access.
Paths lead to a seating auvent before a bubbling fountain. The `Tea House of the August Moon’ is a little secluded summer house on a lower lawn offering total relaxation. From the enclosed terraced swimming pool (10m x 4m) are spectacular views to the village and down the valley to the Mediterranean – even Corsica can be glimpsed on a clear day.
“We had a wonderful time. It is a really lovely property with a very comfortable house and outstanding garden. Only two negatives which are not important if you are fit. Firstly the parking and then the steps. We were under the impression that the steps were down to the pool and the house at the top; but as long as you have enough beefy men to carry cases it is fine. Beatrice was sensationally good and a really lovely lady. The village is also one of the few left in the south that has maintained its charm. The restaurants are more than adequate and the main supermarkets close enough not to worry. Full marks.”
What we think: An intimate house perfect for those wanting a relaxing holiday. This is a charming property set in very pretty gardens, incorporating a small summer house. Steps lead up to a swimming pool with views to the coast. Beautifully planted garden with water features, a lawn on lower level to far side of house + borders with a delightful summer house and a shaded terrace by the house for outdoor eating.
The house is for a maximum of 6 adults and 2 young.
