Welcome to our house on the sunny hills of Magagnosc !
We have a house just outside Grasse where we can offer accommodation in three self contained apartments. Two one bedroom apartments and one two bedroom apartment.
This one is named the Citronnier (lemon tree)
The apartment is 40m2, has a large bedroom with double bed, bathroom , kitchen,and living with a convertible sofa bed for 2 people.
They all have private balconies with a wonderful view down to the sea (Cannes/Mandelieu/Theoule), the Esterel mountains and the Tanneron forest, the latter well known for its Mimosa.
As for the apartments, they have their private entry, fully furnished and equipped, free wifi, television, washing machines. I provide sheets and towels, so you can just drop your suitcase and start the holidays immediately upon arrival.
Magagnosc is a small hamlet, or rather several small hamlets plus a very large residential area. 4 km to Grasse, 35 km to Nice and 20 km to Cannes. Closest skiing resort is Gréolieres, around 45 minutes drive. Lots of typical Provencal villages aswell : Biot, Valbonne, Mougins, Gourdon, Saint Paul de Vence to name a few.
As we are so close to everything it is just a question of time what you will be able to do.
Golfing, hiking, biking, beach, shopping…………….
You will find maps, guides and information in your apartment and the tourist office of Grasse also have a very complete website. And we’ve lived here for 16 years and are more than happy to give you some ideas of what to do.
A MUST while in Grasse is of course the Perfume museums, my favourites are the International Perfume Museum which was recently renovated, then the Fragonard museum which offers free guided tours, both of these are situated in the Centre of Grasse. Less known by visitors is the beautiful Cathedral of Grasse, worth a visit, and if you come in July and August you can enjoy a perfumed siesta in the centre of town. Also the little streets with lots of nice shops and restaurants is worth a visit, will give you the names of our favorites once you get here.
If travelling with children, I would also recommend going to Monaco and visit the Oceanographic Museum, Antibes with its well known Marineland, or why not go to the lake of Saint Cassien and rent a pedalboat or canoe.

Koselig sted med fin utsikt. Bodde der bare en natt, men vi trivdes godt.
Tove is a perfect host and the B&B is lovely. View is absolutely amazing.
We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to visit again.
Tove is an EXCELLENT host! She really goes out of her way and it is her personal mission to ensure you have everything you need to have a great stay. We had a small problem with water supply due to a truck damaging the main water pipe and Tove went out of her way to bring bottled water and extra buckets which was not needed as the water was back on in no time. She also brought us basket of fruit from the garden and drove us to the supermarket to get shopping which so helpful.
This accomodation is PERFECT with excellent views, an amazing pool to relax by and a short walk into Grasse.
We will certainly be back if we are in the area again.
Thanks Tove :) x
Accueil correct, belle vue, matériels de piscine à disposition. Le studio dans lequel nous étions: citronnier était petit pour 4 personnes (2adultes et 2 enfants) mais avec une bonne literie. Le logement correspondait plus à une location saisonnière ( avec le minimum requis) qu'à une location chez l'habitant avec son caractère plus personnel. Il est un peu regrettable que les enfants doivent payer autant que si c'était des adultes. Dommage qu'il y ait des horaires de piscine 9H/18H . Difficile de ne pas pouvoir se baigner après 18H après une journée de visites dans la région.
Die Wohnung ist klein aber sehr gemütlich! Mit 4 Leuten kann man erholsame Tage dort verbringen. Vom Balkon kann man den Berg herab Blicken und die Umgebung genießen!
Tove ist sehr herzlich und immer bemüht alles zu ermöglichen! Vielen dank noch einmal!!! Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit!
Tove was a great host from the start. We had trouble with travelling and were consequently late. She stayed up until midnight to wait for us - which few people would do. We had coffee with her the next day and she was very friendly and gave us recommendations.
Beds were good and view was great. It was also a blessing for us after travelling around so much to have a small kitchen and washing machine.
Un grand merci à Tove pour son accueil, sa discrétion. Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans un gite très calme et très confortable. Quelle jolie vue du balcon sur Grasse et son environnement!
A nice apartment in a quiet location with a great view from the balcony! Moreover I can only agree with the other reviewers: Tove is a great host who was always helpful, cheerful and interested in our activities. She gave us a lot of advices regarding trips, restaurants and other places of interest.
We really enjoyed our vacation and the relaxed atmosphere and would come back anytime!
Tove is such a friendly host. She invited me to a coffee and jiuce to her place downstairs and we had a nice chat. I recommend her place already to all online and offline friends and will not stop until everyone knows about this lovely place and host. I will definitely be back again.
All the best from rainy Hamburg, Germany
