20 years in Switzerland, 25 in the UK and now enjoying a perfect place to live halfway between the two! (can't believe Don and I have been here 17 years already, time flies when you're enjoying yourself). We love welcoming our guests at Pura Vida and making sure everything is provided to ensure a relaxing and most enjoyable holiday.
|Year property purchased||2001|
|Why this location?||Amazing views over the hills towards Cap d'Antibes and the Mediterranean, away from the crowds, but still close enough from the airport, the motorway and interesting well known cultural and entertaining spots like Saint-Paul de Vence, Cannes, Antibes and Monaco, or even a day trip to Italy.|
|Unique benefits of property||Sea view from the infinity pool and from every room. En suite bathroom or shower room to every bedroom. Private pool (not overlooked by neighbours!), sun and covered terrrace areas, lawn, bbq, pizza oven, free to air UK satellite tv.|
Tourrettes-sur-Loup, Saint-Paul de Vence, Gourdon and many more in the area, well worth visiting and enjoying their stunning locations, craft shops and art galleries.
Our second year at idyllic Pura Vida, and it was just as lovely as the first. Catherine and Don are kind and generous hosts, making us feel very at home in their beautiful home.
We did very little, content to read by the pool, play games on the terrace and eat our own body weight in delicious French food.
And, the bonus of having the family dog and cat for company when we chose - a great way to occupy our nearly 13 year old.
We just love Pura Vida. And, several friends have asked for the details so we may have some competition for next year’s booking!
Thank you, Nicola! Such a treat to you again, xx
We rented this property based on the pictures but it was more beautiful than expected. A very nice pool with a super view with lighting for very long evenings. The house is very near a couple of major cities like Nice, Monaco, Antibes and Cannes. The local town area which is within walking distance holds a very good bakery and butcher. Also not too far is a large Leclerc where you can buy everything for a long evening of wining and dining.
The house was very clean and the air-condition in the bedroom was brilliant as it can get hot in that part of France. The property owners were a lovely couple who are very private but if requested can keep an eye on things when you are visiting the various nearby cities.
We have made a video of the house and the nearby nature..... a definite must rent if you want to visit this part of France!
Thank you so much Michel, Selene and Aron! You were such wonderful guests and the video is an amazing gift. We hope we will see you again at Pura Vida, xxx
Ours Vida is in a great location with beautiful views. It is very clean and comfortable and Don and Catherine are excellent and discreet hosts. The house is well equipped and very comfortable and there are many interesting places to visit within a 30-60 minute drive. Tourette is a lovely small town but the road to it is very busy and quite narrow so it is not really practical to walk there even though it is only 10 or 15 minutes away on foot. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Pura Vida really is heaven on earth. We had a fabulously relaxing week here, dipping in the gorgeous infinity pool which looks across to the Mediterranean, reading in the shade and eating together in the beautiful garden. Catherine and Don are wonderfully kind and generous hosts, and made us feel so at home from the minute we arrived, welcoming us on the first night with drinks and local treats.
In fact, the house was so lovely that we really didn't venture far, apart from into the village for delicious meals, or the day trip we took to Monaco. If you eat in the village don't miss Le Sansot - yummy food and amazing views of Tourrettes sur Loup.
If you do stay inside, the living room is designed for family comfort, and the three bedrooms have very comfy beds and are all en-suite. I found the utility room a massive bonus - no washing to bring home!
If you're hesitating to book Pura Vida, don't! It's a very special place, and you'll have a wonderful stay. We can't wait to come back!
