FR173 – La Casella REF: FR173

Recently renovated, yet maintaining the essence of its history, this beautiful house offers comfort, intimacy and space. Seemingly divorced from the Cote d’Azur’s frenetic coastal life, yet only 1km from the market town of Opio, 25km from Nice international airport.

The elegant Salon opens to the main terrace for relaxing and onto the gardens where a choice of seating areas entices you to linger awhile. The well stocked kitchen opens onto its own dining terrace with gorgeous views over the gardens and beyond to the hills.  Accommodation is between the spacious bedrooms of the Main House and nearby Guest Cottage with air conditioning in 5 of the bedrooms. Beyond the guest cottage amongst the olive grove is the sparkling heated swimming pool (11m x 4m) and pool house offering shaded seating, alongside which is the boules pitch.

Sensational established gardens created from terraces of olive trees as a series of rooms with feature pathways  past pruned lollipop cork oaks, tree peonies and climbing roses.  From a romantic pagoda entwined by wisteria, breathtaking views over the plains of Opio can be enjoyed with an evening drink.

Customer Review

I wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed our stay at La Casella. The house and gardens ar‎e stunning, and the whole atmosphere was wonderfully relaxing. In particular James and Pascale were absolutely brilliant, taking care of everything with skill and diligence. We were lucky enough to have James cooking every evening and all his recipes were imaginative and totally delicious.   All in all another excellent holiday and thanks to Pamela, you and everyone at PPA.
