About the local area
Local shops and supermarket can be found very nearby, plus the local town of Carros has a variety of 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, 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 azure 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 preferred from here; there is a local bus service and the train at 15km, but a car would allow you to reach shops and restaurants and tour the area much easier.
Sightseeing is endless; you have the charming perched village of Carros; the town and open-air Opera Festival of Gattieres; the old town of Vence; the art galleries of St Paul-de-Vence; the historical old town of Nice; the restaurants and yachts in the port of Nice; a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais; the views from the Chateau of Nice; the Museums of Art in Nice; the animals & plants at Parc Phoenix; the marine park at Marineland, Antibes; the water park at Aquasplash; the charming Mediterranean town of Villefranche-sur-Mer; the coastal walk around Cap-Ferrat; it is also possible to cross over the border to experience the flavour of Italy!
Other entertainment includes shopping, casinos & nightlife of Nice, boat trips, cinemas, wine tasting, helicopter rides, or just good old relaxing by the pool!
