This is the true French Riviera – romantic sea-views from enchanting gardens filled with cypress trees and bougainvillea and only 2km from a charming town with red cliffs tumbling down to the Mediterranean. Les Terrasses d’Or is a wonderful holiday home where you can relax in glorious surroundings and explore this captivating part of southern France.
As you step out onto your terrace, the vistas of the sea will amaze you. Whether lounging by the inviting swimming pool or sipping chilled Provençal rosé in the shade of the al-fresco pergola, you will be able to gaze out towards the Iles de Lérins in the deep blue Mediterranean. Wander down the steps and discover the glorious gardens as you follow beguiling narrow paths past summer flowers, cacti and palm trees and find the perfect spot to shade from the heat of the summer, always taking in the views of the sea.
Inside the villa is equally charming with a bright, open-plan living room and kitchen-diner with plenty of doors allowing you to enjoy the picture-perfect landscapes outside. Simply step out of the living room and you can be beside the swimming pool looking out over the terraced gardens below. Upstairs there are four traditional and pretty bedrooms, two of which have romantic sea-facing balconies. With air-conditioning throughout, you can be sure to have every comfort you may need in this lovely home.
In a hillside position, it’s only 2km down to the lovely seaside town of Théoule-sur-Mer with its beautiful beaches and crystal-clear sea. There is a variety of watersports along the coast, some within walking distance and also a number of restaurants in stunning settings.
