About this listing
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.

Merci encore Tove et peut être à bientôt!

Everything was really great - the appartment, the view from the balcony, the silence of the residential area etc.! We enjoyed the stay :)
It is also very easy to explore the area around Grasse, since there is a bus going directly to Nice. Thank you, Tove!
Wonderful description and location. Trove is an experienced host . She made our stay very enjoyable.
Tove was great! she welcomed us and was waiting to let us get in the apartment.
We had all we need in the apartment, thanks
Tove, nous a très agréablement accueilli, nous avons d'ailleurs eu droit à un bol de tomates cerises fraichement cueillis, également, elle était plein de bons conseils concernant les randonnées à faire, ou encore les chemin à prendre pour de jolies balades.
Le quartier était tout à fait charmant.
L'environnement dans lequel nous nous trouvions était super.
Ce séjour en famille, court, certes, mais à la hauteur de nos attentes.
Merci à Tove pour cet agréable séjour.
Tove was very kind and thoughtful and we were very grateful indeed that she came to pick us up at the station on a Sunday. Her flat is really clean and comfortable and in a fabulous location near to Grasse. It's a beautiful spot with gorgeous views and we had a lovely time in the pool and enjoyed the sun. We made great use of the reliable local buses and visited far flung villages, the Florian confectioners in Pont du Loup, the Galinard perfumer studio just outside the centre ville as well as a very easy journey back to Nice airport on the fabulously useful 500 service. We have no hesitation in recommending Tove's flat to you all.
