A MOSSIE-FREE HOLIDAY

about as tranquil as a holiday gets

RELAXING, QUIET & VERY, VERY PEACEFUL

Le Foulon is about as tranquil as a holiday can be. If peace, tranquility and the ability to relax one hundred percent are what you are looking for in a break, be it in the summer, autumn, winter or spring, then look no further.

Set in 16 acres, 4kms from the nearest village, we have no neighbours to disturb or be disturbed by, zero light pollution to spoil the star gazing, and the loudest thing at night is the chirp of crickets on the prairie. Beyond that it's the babble of the river passing through the valley, which is much reduced in the summer months, but can be quite an impressive torrent during the winter, or early spring when it carries the melt water from the mountains higher up.

Bar none our guests have enjoyed a restful and soothing break, and return to their home lives calm and with their batteries fully re-charged. It starts as soon as you leave Nice airport behind you, and drive away from the fascinating yet hectic Cote d'Azur. When we first discovered this hidden valley we couldn't believe this kind of peace could be just 35 minutes from the second busiest airport in France with connections to the rest of the world.

Coming from London it took a while to sink in that after less than 2 hours on a plane and just 35 minutes in a car you can be somewhere that feels like a million miles from anywhere. It's not that the valley feels cut off or beyond civilisation, it's just that after such an easy and quick journey you are faced with a beautiful and panoramic view of mountains and forest that's uninterrupted bar the ruined castle of Greolieres. In our experience this kind of seclusion usually takes a lot more effort to enjoy.

It's not that there aren't any other buildings in this Provencal valley, it's just Le Foulon is lucky enough not to be able to see them. The nearest village as the crow flies is Cipieres, with around 500 inhabitants, but it's just over the brow of a hill and despite it only taking 35 minutes on foot we can't see a single property.

Greolieres is about the same size, and just as laid back and charming as it's neighbour, and yet we cannot see a single building from Le Foulon, bar the pretty ruined castle, or chateau. I don't think this feat is by design, more luck, but whatever it is it means you can enjoy an uninterrupted view of the countryside that just soaks up any stress or anxiety and re-connects you with nature.

Yep, that's right, this area can turn you into a bit of a hippy, but that's just good karma!

Nice
 
Peace, tranquility and quiet come as standard.

If you are looking for a tranquil break, in a laid back b&b close to any of these places then consider Le Foulon - Gourdon, Greolieres, Vence, Tourettes, St Paul, Bar Sur Loup, Grasse and all the Cote d'Azur.
