A cozy private villa in the stunning Cote d'Azur countryside.
The Bastide St. Mathieu is an eighteenth-century manor house set on a hectare of scenic and tranquil gardens. The careful restoration and renovation of the property brought such modern amenities as Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a professional standard kitchen and a Suzuki baby grand digital piano to 300 years of Provençal history. Each room features a different color scheme, artwork, eclectic furniture and décor, as well as views of the lush surrounding landscape.
Guests can venture out onto the boule piste for games like bocce or pétanque, dine on the terrace or dive into the swimming pool. There are also olive groves to explore and a cuisine d'été, or summer kitchen, for outdoor cooking. Guests will appreciate the service of the live-in private butler/concierge, who looks after guests' needs and can make arrangements as required.
Activities and services that can be organized include golf, tennis, private chauffeur, restaurant reservations, massage and salon appointments, a private chef and catering personnel. There are many beaches and charming little villages nearby, and the manor is 15 minutes from Cannes and 25 minutes from Nice, in the heart of the French Riviera.
Bastide Saint Mathieu has become a treasured venue for weddings and private parties, as one of the few Riviera hotels or villas that is not only a fine historic building but also has the capacity to host dinners and dancing in the Provençal olive groves, lavender beds and green hills of the country behind Cannes. Tenants have included many famous names that are drawn to the Riviera and some of the great fashion houses of France.
