Escape the real world & rediscover your inner calm. It sounds clichéd, but sitting with a long cold drink on the sun terrace, soaking up the valley view, the whisper of the wind through the forest of oak & the birdsong dancing from tree to tree, we defy you not to find peace from your hectic home and work life. But getting back to nature doesn't mean you can't listen to some good music on the outdoor speaker system. Or keep up-to-date with the wi-fi. It also doesn't mean you have work around ancient facilities - you'll find a modern, well equipped kitchen that's a joy to use. You'll also find 2 modern bathrooms, with great water pressure and plenty of hot water.

The unspoilt village of Gréolières is 4kms along the valley where you'll find a selection of restaurants and shops. We can be flexible with the duration of your stay, so please get in touch if you have any questions.More

About the neighbourhood
The inhabitants of Gréolières fled the town and crossed the valley to the village of Cipieres, taking the disease with them. The survivors who returned vowed never to live in the old buildings again and rebuilt their village just a short distance away. Even today many of the locals still own a few walls among the ruins, but the decision to leave the old village at rest remains. The commune of Gréolières extends to 5267 hectares and once used to be predominantly farmland. Le Foulon itself was a farm, with the present building being the Maison de Maitre, or in other words, the boss' house. The farm workers lived just down the valley. It's difficult to imagine the forested hills being cultivated, but take a walk and you'll be stunned at the work that must have gone in to terrace the land. M...
Getting around
A car is the only way to get around in this gorgeous mountainous location. Either drive your own car here (and bring your pets!), or hire a car from Nice airport as you arrive. The scenery is breathtaking.
