About the local area
Local shops and a boulangerie can be found just 800 metres away and the nearest restaurant just 300 metres. The local town of Carros, just 3km away, offers you a supermarket and more extensive shopping facilities. Carros Village, a medieval, perched village is also not far away - here you can wander through the charming little streets and admire the views down the valley from the various lookouts. There are more restaurants here too. The neighbouring towns and villages of Gattières, St Jeanette and Vence also offer more choice of shopping and facilities.
Local markets are held in Nice, Antibes and Biot. The most well known market is held in the ‘Cours Saleya’ in Nice, adjacent to the old town, and offers an array of olives, flowers and fresh produce. There is also an antiques market held here on a Monday.
Sporting activities in the area are abundant– there is tennis (3km), golf, sailing, diving, fishing, water sports and canyoning. You are also in very close proximity to the mountains and hills of the Alpes Maritimes region here, which makes walking and cycling very popular.
Beaches can be found approx 15km away at both St Laurent du Var and Nice. From here you can enjoy the sunshine glittering on the azur blue waters of the Med, watch the many boats crossing the ‘Baie des Anges’, and see the planes and helicopters coming in and out of the airport.
The ski stations of Valberg, Isola 2000 and Auron are approximately 1 hour’s drive away (70km) if you fancy a couple of days winter sports; this property is ideally located for easy access to the road which takes you up to the mountains.
Getting around, a car is essential from here. There is a bus service approximately 3km away and the train at 15km, but a car would allow you to reach shops and restaurants and tour the area much easier.
