FULLY BOOKED THIS SUMMER, think ahead to summer 2018! CHRISTMAS 2017 AVAILABLE! Lovely family house with fenced pool & large garden with trampoline. Now available for Christmas/New Year too!
This beautiful, light, sunny house, 'Lou Messugo', is our family home which we rent out for a few weeks every summer (mid July - mid August approx) and over the Christmas period. It comprises the main house with a 60 m2 living space and open plan kitchen dining room, 2 double bedrooms and a bedroom with bunk-beds, and a fully self-contained, independent apartment which sleeps up to 4 people (which we rent out for the rest of the year as a holiday let, see my other listing).
There are 3 bathrooms and toilets (one ensuite from the master bedroom). The house is decorated throughout with a fresh modern look. It is south-facing, sunny & light and has 2 separate terraces equipped with outdoor furniture for 10 and 2 BBQs (1 gas, 1 charcoal), perfect for relaxed outdoor dining under the wisteria. The large child-friendly garden has a trampoline, boules pitch, ping-pong table and a fully fenced pool. Both the main house and the apartment are equipped with satellite TV, DVD players, HiFi, iPod docks/USB ports for your own music and free WiFi.
The main kitchen is modern and of the highest quality. It comes fully equipped with all cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, induction hob, fan oven and espresso maker coffee machine (loose coffee not pads or capsules) + cafetières. Being keen cooks ourselves there are many extra items available (such as blenders, food processors etc) to cook up a provençal feast. The apartment kitchen is small but practical with everything you need provided too. There is a large laundry room with washer and dryer and storage space for bikes and other bulky equipment.
For winter visits there's a cosy open fireplace with plenty of logs provided, and efficient underfloor central heating.
The house is located in a quiet residential area within walking distance of the centre of a small town with shops, restaurants, banks, etc. We have a large garden (2000 m2) planted with Mediterranean plants, lots of lavender, an olive, majestic 30 m tall pines and oaks, providing plenty of shady spots to keep cool in on hot summer days.
On site, as well as the POOL, we have a range of facilities including a large trampoline, pétanque pitch, table tennis, badminton & croquet. Our bicycles (varying sizes incl baby seat) are available for your use but the main attraction is the pool with sun-loungers and inflatables provided. To make your holiday perfectly relaxing there is also a hammock for snoozing in after a long lunch!
To make life easy for families we can provide all necessary equipment for travelling with babies/toddlers such as a travel cot, high chair, plastic plates/cutlery/cups, changing mat and a good selection of toys/books/DVDs. We know just how much paraphernalia the smallest members of the family come with as we've been there!
Lou Messugo is ideally located between mountains and sea, only 20-30 mins to beautiful beaches and the buzzing towns of Cannes, Nice, Antibes and Grasse, 50 mins to Monaco and an hour to Italy as an added bonus! This area really does offer something for everyone: stunning scenery, adventure sports, beaches, shopping, hiking, mountain biking, golf, fabulous food, gorgeous medieval hill villages, art galleries, provençal markets and much much more. Please see the reviews from past guests in the apartment for verification of this!
The village is on the main bus route from Nice to Grasse (the world centre of the perfume industry) and the stop is 5 mins walk away but to get the most out of this fabulous area we strongly suggest you have your own vehicle. There is onsite secure parking for 3 cars. We are 25 mins drive from Nice International airport which is served by BA, Easyjet, Air France, Delta, KLM and many more national and budget airlines.
Our house is perfect for 2 families holidaying together or one large family with several generations (grandparents in the apartment for example).
Please take a look at the Guide Book I prepared for my other listing (the apartment on site available all year round) to give you an idea of some of the great things you can do in the area. It's far from exhaustive as there's just so much more on offer particularly in the category of restaurants. It would be impossible to list all the fabulous places to eat from cosy local cafés to gourmet bistros and gastronomic palaces! Many of my favourite places don't show up on the map search for this guide book but I'd be delighted to tell you about them. Please feel free to ask me for tips and local knowledge.
Everything except locked cellar.

We try to welcome our guests and see them out at the end but are not around during their stay as we rent out the whole home hence we move out during the rental period. However, we are always contactable by phone or email and leave trusted friends in charge.
The house is in a quiet domain of family villas and as such our guests are expected to respect the tranquility of the location. Normal levels of noise of families having fun, children playing etc is absolutely expected and welcomed but loud partying late into the night is not allowed.
Od 1. Srpanj 2017. - 1. Rujan 2018. minimalni boravak je 7 noćenja.

Hi, I'm British/Australian married to a French guy. We have 2 kids. We built our house ("Lou Messugo") in 2009 in the most amazing part of the south of France because after a lifetime of travel we knew we'd found somewhere pretty special to put down roots. I've lived in 9 countries including India, Australia, Iceland and Vietnam amongst other places and travelled extensively throughout the world but France has been my home for the longest I've lived anywhere. I love my life in this beautiful corner of France. I enjoy blogging about it and sharing it with others both through writing and in the flesh with my guests from all over the world. Travel and meeting people from different cultures are my passions. I'd be delighted to host you at Lou Messugo so get in touch!
