We are delighted to offer our guests the opportunity to stay in this very special location. Vue du Lac is a three-bedroom villa in a lovely spot with magnificent poolside views over the woods towards a sparkling blue Lac de Saint-Cassien. Surrounded by woods and set on a private Domaine, guests also have access to tennis courts. 

Vue du Lac is furnished in a traditional style with good quality furniture and fixtures throughout. Being on a hillside, there is lower level pool and summer kitchen where you will undoubtedly spend most of your time admiring the view. This lower level is accessed externally and provides access to the third bedroom with its own en suite shower room. The ground floor interior is cool and spacious with a good quality open plan kitchen and breakfast table. Two ground floor bedrooms (one with en suite bathroom and feature tiled bath) both give access to the terrace and beautiful lake views. Al fresco meals will undoubtedly be the norm during your stay; there is the balcony, a rear shady dining gazebo or a poolside summer kitchen with large table. The oval shaped pool and villa are surrounded by a well-tended garden with hardy Mediterranean shrubs, rocky pathways and scented flowers to awaken your senses in the Provençal sunshine! 

A visit to Lac de Saint-Cassien (3km) will surely be one of your holiday excursions. There are various places around the lake offering a variety of water sports, such as canoe or paddle board hire as well as beaches for swimming. Also recommended are delightful walks and cycling routes into the surrounding Var hills as well as around the lake itself. Exploring some of the Var's prettiest hilltop villages such as Montauroux (5.5km), Callian (7.5km) or the larger Fayence (15km) will please those seeking some authentic French brasserie dining or a weekly fresh food market fix. The closest beaches are in Mandelieu (29km) and the airport in Nice is only an hour's drive, making Vue du Lac an easily accessible and highly sought after private holiday villa.

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Vue du Lac

Tour the nearby hilltop villages

Take a scenic drive around the picturesque 'perched' villages of Montauroux, Callian, Fayence, Tourrettes and Seillans. Explore the cobbled streets and delight in finding a quintessential café or provencal market in the square.

Day at the lake

Have some fun on the water by heading to Lac St Cassien where boats, canoes and pedalo hire are available. There are little lake beaches from which to swim, and café-restaurants for lunch and refreshments. Fishing permits are available too.

Tee off!

Golf enthusiasts will want to try the two 9-hole golf courses at Terre Blanche, in nearby Tourrettes.

St Cézaire Caves

The tour of Les Grottes de St Cézaire takes you down through caverns with features including draperies, stalactites and stalagmites, many with a lovely rose color, eventually reaching the Gouffre Béant at the bottom where a underground river flows past.

Take to the air

The adventurous among you may like to try gliding at the nearby Aérodrome just south of Fayence - a unique way to enjoy the mountain and sea views of the Cote d'Azur.

Grasse

is internationally renowned for its perfume production, and offers ample opportunity to sample and buy perfumes and a wide variety of fragranced goods as well as discovering the origins of perfume making at the Fragonard, Molinard or Galimard perfume factories or at the fascinating Musée International de la Parfumerie. An antiques market is held at the Cours Honoré Cresp every Wednesday morning throughout the year.

Monkeying around

Montauroux has a treetop obstacle course with safety harnesses, as well as an unusual netted area in the trees where you can run and jump about freely, 5m above ground! There is also laser-tag and mini-golf on the same site.

Vineyards and wine tasting

Visit a nearby vineyard to taste the local wines - rosé is the most typical tipple around here.

A day on the coast

Head down to Mandelieu to spend a day at the beach. There are quite a few to choose from, some pebbly though most sandy, many with facilities and close to amenities but some more out of the way and quieter.

Hire bikes

in Montauroux and take to the hill roads for some interesting and often challenging cycling and of course some fantastic views.

Hit Cannes!

A 50 minute drive will take you to perhaps the most famous Riviera town, home to the highly acclaimed Cannes Film Festival. Take a peek at how the other half live by driving down the main drag of La Croisette which contains some of the most expensive real estate outside of Paris. Here, you can also find numerous designer name boutiques for some great retail therapy.

Parc Zoologique de Fréjus

Built in 1971, this Zoological Parc stretches over a vast 20 hectares, which can visited either by foot or in the car. It boasts over 110 different species of mammals, reptiles and birds, and is a fantastically entertaining and educational day out for all the family.

Antiques market

at the Cours Honoré Cresp in the centre of Grasse, every Wednesday morning throughout the year.

Horse riding

is available in Fayence so why not admire the local area on horseback?

Visitors to Grasse in early August

can appreciate the annual ‘Fete du Jasmin’ festival held in honour of the flower of the same name. The highlight of the event is the 'bataille de fleurs', where flowers are thrown into the crowd, their fragrance heady in the air.

Art trail

Many famous painters and sculptors have been inspired by the light and landscape of this region, so it is no surprise that it is blessed with art galleries and museums. To name a few: the Matisse Museum and the Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art in Nice, the Renoir Museum in Cagnes-sur-Mer, the Fondation Maeght in St-Paul-de-Vence and the Picasso Museum in Antibes.

Gorgeous scenery

Head northwest to see the spectacular gorge, 25km long and 700 metres deep, formed by the Verdon river whose mineral deposits turn it a startling turquoise. Take a day to drive around the hairpin bends above the canyon, go walking or climbing in the National Park, or even hire kayaks to explore the waterways.

Day out in Nice

Explore one of the oldest human settlements in Europe taking in the sights of the old quarter, Place Rossetti, the Russian Orthodox Cathedral and Place Massena which is the main square of the city. Held in the Cours Saleya, the daily morning Marché des Fleurs is a riot of colour and fragrances. Stay on for lunch in one of the many restaurants which spill out into the pedestrianised lanes and squares. Anyone for Salade Niçoise?
