This 19th century renovated mansion is located in the foothills of the Alps overlooking the town of Grasse. It has a breath taking view of the natural terrain, the town and the Mediterranean Sea. The location is peaceful and relaxing and is only 1 km from town. In Grasse you will find a variety of shops, restaurants, museums and perfumeries. A short distance by car are the cities of Cannes (11 km), Nice (30 km) or the sea coast town of Antibes (30 km). If your passion is exploring natural wonders you may like to drive to the subterranean lake in the Grotte de la Baume Obscure or to the caves just off the D11 or D13 highway at the Grottes de St-Cezaire. The town of Grasse is centrally located on the Cote d\"Azur and is only about 1 1/2 hours from Monaco.
