Horse Riding Holiday, stay at Ancient Shepherd’s Retreat!
This solidly built old stone farmhouse, once the home of a shepherd, on the sloping outskirts to the south-east of Mougins, rejoices in tasteful cosiness, rather than awkward modern decoration, and is the much-loved home-fromhome of its owners. In the seclusion of its tall hedges and walled terraces, adorned by some fine olive trees, centuries old, it enjoys privacy, peacefulness, and some agreeable views across to the far hills, being virtually undisturbed by the sparsely built houses up and down the steep lane, by which it is reached.
Accommodation consists of four bedrooms: one double and 3 x twin beds (of which one pair normally joined as a double), with 2 bathrooms (1bath, 1 shower, 2 WCs), in addition to which there is a fifth occasional spare bedroom (k) reached from the garden and with access to a small garden bathroom (f) with shower, basin and WC (12 metres walk). The house is entered via a large, very private, sunny patio, leading to a light and spacious living room with a large corner sofa, and several easy chairs around an open fireplace. Opposite the steps to the patio are steps up to the terraced lawns, the uppermost one enjoying sun and welcome shade at all times, and being set around a very pleasant swimming pool (10 x 5m), also with lovely views.
Equipment includes electric heating, open fire, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, deepfreeze, French television and linen. Outdoors are a barbecue, 2 parasols and 2 garden tables etc. Cleaner available on request.
Excellent shopping facilities (including bakery, restaurant, café etc) may be found in Mougins, at 2km, and there is a supermarket at 3km. A municipal tennis court may be found at 5km. There is a golf course at 1km and horseriding at 5km. Mougins lies between Grasse, to the north, centre of the French perfume industry, and to the south, Cannes, renowned for its fine beaches, about 8km from the house.
Visit The Valmasque Park and the other forests and woodlands surrounding Mougins. Horse riders will love the miles of secluded pathway through the idyllic countryside, spectacular valleys and sweet smelling forests. This region is abundant with wildlife. There are different riding experiences available for young and old, beginners and experienced riders. We can arrange for you to go out for a day, or every day for a week, you choose!
