La Cascade is a fully self-contained modern studio apartment, converted from a poolhouse. It is on the property of the owners' house, which is in a separate building. Guests at La Cascade have almost exclusive use of the swimming pool, as the owners use it just occasionally.
The open-plan studio contains a double bed, making La Cascade ideal for a couple. An additional self-contained suite is available in the main house if required, at an extra charge- ask for details. The suite has its own bathroom and garden entrance.
The property is set in a well-tended garden, surrounded by trees, and enjoys good privacy.
It is set in a rural area, within walking distance of the two ancient Provençal villages of Seillans and Fayence.
Inside the studio apartment is an open-plan space with a large double bed and storage space for clothes.
A shower room and WC are in separate rooms. The fully equipped, covered kitchen is outside on the terrace, and has a gas stove, microwave, sink, barbecue, and a full set of utensils. The fridge is inside the apartment.
The valley where La Cascade is located contains five villages, all of which are rich in character and tradition. Two villages, Seillans and Fayence, are within a kilometre or two. There is a great range of restaurants, bars, and small shops locally.
Open-air markets, selling fresh local produce, cheeses and meats, are held at least three times a week nearby. There are also supermarkets and large shops in the locality.
This hilly rural area is full of walking and hiking trails. At the end of the vally is Lac Saint-Cassien, a popular site for swimming and water sports, where you can hire pedal boats.
Within about an hour's drive are many great attractions. The glamourous, exciting cities of Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Saint-Tropez line the Mediterranean coast. They offer great beaches, dining and shopping.
Further inland is the city of Grasse, the world's perfume capital. Also within easy reach are the Alpes Maritimes mountain range and the great gorge carved by the Verdon river.
