Fine & Country are delighted to present this newly renovated traditional Provencal villa, gloriously steeped in a blend of French charm and Scandinavian design. Ideally located in the heart of the French Riviera, within walking distance of the spectacular captivating French village of Speracedes with breathtaking views of the Lac de St Cassien. Originally part of the commune of Cabris, Speracedes gained independence in 1910 when they discovered the village had its own water source, and not just one, three! which allowed them to transform their own mills in the production of olive oil. Now crowned a “4 star star” village which was presented to them in 2016 as one of only 8 villages in all of France. The Villa is located just 25 km from Cannes, 7 km from Grasse and only 40 minutes drive from Nice airport, the second largest and most functional airport in France. The location is ideal for anyone wishing to explore and experience the French Riviera. From the perfumeries of Grasse which are only 15 minutes away, to the Gorges du Vernon which is the largest canyon in Europe, the beaches and nightlife of Cannes and all its coastline, the caves of St Cézaire are only 10 minutes away , the wonderfully daring Monte Carlo hosts the Monaco Grand Prix every year and has the best casinos in the world. There are countless bike paths, trails and hiking opportunities with endless possibilities and adventures to explore. This delicate and prestigious renovation project, which lasted five years, was undertaken by designer Lisa and her husband Niclas, they left nothing out and the added features make this house a real "jewel". The inspiration for this project, quoted in expressen magazine, was also “to start a whole new life where we could combine our passion for food, wine, art, decoration and music”. “In the fall of 2015, we decided that we had had enough of rainy old Sweden. We were both on parental leave, so we took our two-month-old baby on a well-deserved trip to the sunny French Riviera. During a walk in the mountains, we came across Spéracèdes and immediately fell in love with this charming little village. After much research, we found the perfect house. A colorful Provencal villa set in a tranquil olive grove with the most stunning views over the valley below. It was the perfect place to raise a family and create our dream home. The villa offers 8 master bedrooms with 7 bathrooms, all with a unique feel and style. A cozy living room with an original open fireplace, a chic dining room opening onto the beautiful idyllic terrace. Three bedrooms on the top of the house served by two bathrooms and a separate toilet area. A fully equipped independent kitchen with a fantastic design, just makes you want to cook and be creative Five impressive suites are luxuriously appointed on the ground floor, four of which are south-east facing and all with direct access to the terrace . The views from the terrace are inspiring and make you feel the Mediterranean vibe. You are surrounded by olive trees, perennial flowers, wisteria, jasmines and magnolias. Perfume galore and with a cool breeze from the coast, an enchanting setting in which to relax and enjoy the fruits of life.
