There is plenty to do at Maison Rose; swim in the large heated pool, relax on the sun terrace, play petanque or shoot some pool in the villa.
Maison Rose has been in our family for three generations and we have a long established relationship with the locals. Originally a village house and adjoining barn, we have transformed the medieval buildings into a luxurious villa and two apartments complete with a large pool and terraced gardens. The building is typically provencal with terracotta floors and whitewashed walls. A two minute walk and you'll find the village square which has a bar/restaurant and the local shop.
Located in the listed medieval mountain village of Cipières, it has stunning views over the Gorges du Loup. You're only half an hour from Grasse and 45 minutes from the coast and Nice Airport.
Cipières is a wonderful base from which to explore the many treasures of the area.
Visit the Cipières Festival Committee website for full details of events happening in and around the village.
The main winter event on the Riviera is the Nice Festival one of the largest carnivals in the world, offering a programme of unforgettable entertainment during February and March.
