The Côte d'Azur, also called the French Riviera, has one of the world’s most pleasant climates. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, the Riviera enjoys France's sunniest weather.
In the summer, temperatures frequently reach 30°C on the coast and a few degrees cooler in the mountains. Winter temperatures range from 10°C to 15°C during the day, usually warm enough to lunch outdoors under the noon sunshine in little more than a T-shirt, even in February!
The perched village of Le Bar sur Loup is located between Grasse and Nice at the beginning of the picturesque Gorges du Loup. Here, the best of both worlds exists with the peace and beauty of the countryside and the excellent proximity to the towns on the Riviera.
The village itself has good facilities, including five restaurants, two bakeries, two general stores, pharmacy, post office and tourist information.
The fabulous 12 metre long and 5 metre wide heated swimming pool is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view! The pool is heated from spring through to autumn and is surrounded by wrought iron fencing and equipped with comfortable sun loungers and parasols.
In 1995 we moved to the south of France with the idea of staying for a couple of years but fell in love with the area and its amazing climate.
We were lucky enough to find “La Bastide Saint Christophe” and to make it our home!
Our passion is to offer our guests a sense of the beauty and tranquility that enchanted us when we moved here more than 20 years ago!
