4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Saint-Jeannet, Alpes Maritimes, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
The villa La Piccada is located in St Jeannet, just 25 minutes from Nice Airport and within easy reach of the A8 motorway. St Jeannet is a discreet medieval village once loved by artists such as Chagall, Dufy and Matisse, where many contemporary artists still choose to live, drawn no doubt by the Baou, the distinctive mountain under which the village nestles. St Jeannet even played a part in Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 caper To Catch A Thief, in which the Baou provides a dramatic backdrop to Grace Kelly and Cary Grant's blossoming romance.

La Piccada comprises four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with two additional beds available if required. All bedrooms are sunny and light with glorious south-facing views. There is a spacious swimming pool, a pool house equipped with both a gas and a charcoal barbecue, several sunny terraces and a...

Interaction with guests
We live right next door so are on hand should you need us, but we also respect your privacy. We like to welcome you personally, show you the villa and offer any tips or advice to make your stay more enjoyable. We also keep an extensive notebook in the villa with info and suggestions.

La Piccada is a great base for a holiday, especially for a group of adults. A very pleasant and well equipped villa, with a wonderful outlook across a wooded valley. There are some steep and narrow roads in the area, so bring a small car...More

About the neighbourhood
La Piccada is a ten minute (uphill) walk to St Jeannet village, where there are two bakeries (one of which award-winning), two excellent restaurants, a terrific pizza place, a popular bar/café with panoramic views, a post office, a newsagent's that stocks some English books and newspapers, a pharmacy and two food shops selling local produce, freshly-prepared dishes and delicatessen-style products. St Jeannet also has one of the last independent vineyards in the region, which produces white, rosé and red wines. Below St Jeannet village itself is the area known as Le Peyron, where there's a supermarket, two bakeries, a pharmacy, a Thai restaurant, a newsagent's and a bank.
Getting around
Most of our guests hire cars (or drive their own) and that's definitely the easiest way to get around. There are two buses from the village, however, one that goes to Vence and the other that heads to the coast, and the shopping centre Cap 3000. We provide bus timetables.
