The beautiful resort “Le Paradou” – a jewel in southern France
“Living like God in France” is possible on a beautiful “Le Paradou” site next to the medieval village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence in the south of France.
Saint-Paul is located in the Arrondissement of Grasse and belongs to the canton of Villeneuve-Loubet. Many artists and artisans found here the place of their muse, including Marc Chagall. The old fortified village is equipped with medieval beautiful architecture: fortifications, beautiful stone houses, cobbled narrow streets, and a charming fountain. This area is highly prized by artists and has a large number of art galleries.
The La Colombe d’Or inn in the old picturesque village was a favourite haunt of the painter Chagall in the 1970s. With the sketches of famous guests like Matisse, Calder, and Picasso it resembles a small museum. In the 1970s, it was also a popular meeting place near Cannes for screen stars like Sophia Loren, Lino Ventura, Yves Montand and others.
The Maeght Foundation, a modern art museum, is located in the immediate vicinity of the “Le Paradou” complex. Predominantly well-known personalities form the neighbourhood to this property, which is located in a quiet, secure location.
The Mediterranean beaches can be reached by car in 15 minutes, the cities of Nice, Cannes, Monaco and Saint Tropez are almost at the door.
“Le Paradou” is terraced on a park area of approximately 5,000 m². Ancient olive, tangerine, lemon and orange trees as well as lush palm trees and tall cypress trees testify to the greatest attachment to nature in the history of this property.
The complex consists of a large country house, five romantic stone houses in the Provencal style and two separate swimming pools.
At the turn of the century, the very sophisticated country villa (MAS) was built by a well-known Russian architect and for a long time belonged to a Belgian ambassador. This house is built in typical Provencal style. An enchanting terrace in the middle of nature spoils the residents right in front of the large kitchen.
The five charming stone houses were subsequently built by the current owner on a hillside. They integrate impressively into the overall picture of the plant. Access is via a romantic stairway through the beautiful parkland.
Named are the fully furnished houses after the great impressionists, who were inspired by this area.
