A charming old Provencal house in Cannes in a beautiful residential area, only 10 minutes from the sea. It has been recently renovated; with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a double living room with old beams , terracotta floor tiles, waxed walls and a study.
The house has a lot of character , beautifully decorated to a very high standard, it has a colourful Mediterranean garden with lemon, clementine, bougainvillea, to mention a few of the plants and a shady dining area under the pergola.. There is a separate utility room and private parking.
It is not suitable for the very young or elderly due to the stairs and the antique furniture and delicate objects. It is only 10 minutes to the beach, 20 minutes to Nice airport, close to many typical hill villages and an hour from Italy .
We would like to exchange for a typical house with character.
Our area "Basse Californie" is quiet, nothing but bird song and frogs! You can walk into town, there is also a regular bus. There are lots of shops and restaurants close to us.
You don't have a sea view but a sea of Palm trees, Olive, Bamboo and Pine as you look up the hill.
