This is a most encouraging review. I know the writer has a very wide experience of renting holiday properties, so he has plenty of scope for comparing la Mesangere with others in France and Italy.

About the neighbourhood
The house is ideally situated between the hills and the sea at an altitude of 350m/1000ft. The neighbourhood is rural but there are plenty of facilities close by. There is an excellent supermarket within walking distance and plenty of small shops at Chateauneuf and Opio (each about 2km). Markets are held at Chateauneuf on Mondays and Valbonne on Fridays. There is a huge choice of very good restaurants within 10km. Nice and Grasse have excellent art galleries and theatres. A good bus service serves Nice and Grasse (1.50 euros any distance) and a new train service runs from Grasse to Cannes and beyond.
