The bright 50 m2 living space has 7 french doors opening onto a wraparound terrace overlooking the Var valley and the pool. The sitting area has been elegantly furnished with a four-seater linen sofa and ample armchairs, kilims, paintings and sculptures. The dining room table and the old refectory one on the veranda each seat 10/12 people. The kitchen is fully equipped from catalytic oven and induction hob to ultra silent dishwasher, American fridge-freezer with ice maker and water dispenser and expresso machine. Satellite televisions with English channels, iPod dock, Blue-rays, books, DVDs and boardgames will keep you entertained for days indoors. Every detail has been thought of for your enjoyment: from martini glasses to fluffy white bath sheets, from hammocks to ping pong table and a dedicated boules area. Here you will find comfort and style and plenty of space to relax in. Teenagers will find their den, cooks will love the convivial kitchen, kids will spend hours in the pool and retreat to the Dormitory to enjoy a 3D film. Days begin with opening the shutters to let the sun poor in and end gently with setting the aperitif table on the terrace. What is there not to like? The villa can also be let out to small groups of up to 4 for a much lower price in low and mid season. We look forward to welcoming you to Minoustan.More

About the neighbourhood
The greatest artists have lived on the Riviera at some point in their life. Inspired by its natural beauty, the quality of the light, the culture and the general art of living that makes life so delicious here. You can enjoy all of it and then retreat to the secluded 3500 square meters of Minoustan to rest, reflect, replenish and refresh. And if you tire of all of that, the little village of Gattières is 3km away with a couple of hearty restaurants, an excellent bakery, a well stocked supermarket with friendly staff, a pharmacy, a post office, a flower shop, a tobacconist, a garage etc. Here you get the best of the region without the bling. Although it is a stone's throw if you want it :)
Getting around
You need a car to fully appreciate all that the Cote d'Azur offers. The are buses and trains into Nice and surrounding areas. They run several times a day between 7am and 7pm.
