About our home

A walk to Nice or to Villefranche sûr Mer and
endless restaurants and hiking, or bus and train tours of the Riviera. Parking on the hill or below. Some traffic noise because we are directly on the Lower Corniche but no view of cars. The picturesque Sentier Litterol sea walk to Villefranche directly below.


More about us

  1. I am a Canadian-British artist and writer, runner, mother, in love with the light, culture, and people of southern France.

  2. I am open to swaps in London or any seaside towns at the moment and will keep your place immaculate.

  3. I have owned this villa for over ten years and know the area well. The culture, food, light, and walking possibilities here are the best I have ever found.

    You can be as busy or as peaceful as you want to be spending your time here. Go to Monaco and see all the sports cars there or along the way, stroll the Old Nice market or the Villefranche Sunday market. Enjoy the vast rosé section of the local Carrefour.

    The views out there windows are ever changing, and sometimes it’s nice to just read on one of the chaises and watch all the boats going by.
