Property descriptionSole agent. Magnificent Bastide with a pool comprising a main house, two villas for the gardener and caretaker, within stunning landscaped gardens. For sale via Savills French Riviera
Formerly turned essentially to the production of olive oil, the Saint François district is layered in terraces of culture.
Known also for its flower cultivation, the district was for a long time frequented by the Italians who came for the harvest. Many settled there as the place reminded them of Tuscany and Umbria.
Grasse, set in the hills to the north of Cannes, is known for its long-established perfume industry.
This heritage is celebrated at the Musée International de la Parfumerie, and famous perfumeries Fragonard, Molinard and Galimard. The town is considered the world's capital of perfume, has obtained two flowers in the Concours des villes et villages fleuris and was made "Ville d'Art et d'Histoire" (town of art and history). Grasse is the setting in the final chapters of the novel Perfume by Patrick Süskind and also featured in the film based on this novel.
Grasse is located of approximately 18km to Cannes, 97km to Saint Tropez, 37km from Nice International Airport and approximately 65km to Monaco.
