La Vieille Boulangerie will delight and impress you! An unassuming, stone house from the main street – but don’t be fooled as there is a magical world within! This 4 storey home with wooden beams and stone floors through out, has been renovated with a wonderful Scandinavian mix of contemporary and ancient. The open, curved wooden staircase is quite striking and the ceiling between ground and first floor has been opened up like a sort of gallery-mezzanine, allowing an interesting use of space and light. This was a boulangerie in times of old and the original oven lies hidden behind the walls.
A heavy, old wooden door brings you into a large sitting room with grand, authentic, stone fireplace on one side and a wall of mirrors on the other. A comfy sofa, armchair and coffee table are found in front of the fireplace and an antique secrétaire desk with swivel stool stands in one corner. The far side of the room is a slightly higher level with cozy reading corner situated around a large double window, which allows the afternoon sun to flood in.
The house is filled with unusual bits and pieces and your eyes simply cannot keep still as they race over the many fine details and surprises La Vieille Boulangerie has to offer. The numerous wooden features provide a friendly warmth to the house making it impressive and yet informal.
This is the kitchen-dining level. The kitchen itself is well equipped with oven, dishwasher, fridge and the usual kitchen appliances. The units are wooden and a pretty window above the sink overlooks the main street below. Copper pots, blue and white china plus pewter milk jugs adorn the walls and stylish lighting is found throughout.
The floor opening to the sitting room below separates the dining area from the kitchen. There is a large ceiling fan position above. A wooden dining table, bench and chairs are placed before a charming fireplace. Double French doors open onto a south-west facing, iron balcony with wicker armchairs for 2 and a small table to enjoy a morning coffee or evening aperitif, whilst taking in the sea view beyond. Again stone floors and wooden beams follow you throughout the house.
The open, wooden staircase twists up another level to the master bedroom – a large and bright room with more French doors opening onto a charming, Tropezian terrace. There is plenty of storage space with an open wardrobe and wall shelving. The double bed (180cm) lies beneath the ceiling eaves and a ceiling fan is positioned for your comfort in the warmer months. The terrace is private and protected from wind and offers roof top views to the sea and Cap d’Antibes. There is a round table with 5 chairs for outside dining, or deck chairs and sun loungers are provided.
Two wooden doors in the bedroom open onto an ensuite bathroom and a utility area with washing machine. The bathroom has a shower with glass and iron doors, dark pebble tiling, a porcelain wash hand bassin and w.c. The floor tiles are grey and white and this too lies beneath the eaves and wooden, ceiling beams.
This level is below the entry level, but yet still one floor above the street level from behind the house – it allows for further sleeping options. There is a pull out sofa bed (140cm) situated in an alcove opposite the stairs, which could sleep an adult or 2 children – this is not a closed room but off a corridor that leads you into the second double bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
The second bedroom is located away from the living areas and other bedroom but it does not have a door, so children or very close friends and family members are best suited to staying on the sofa bed, as the bathroom is shared and accessed through the second bedroom. The bed is 160cm and the bathroom has a bath, w.c and wash hand basin. Storage is provided and a leather armchair stands below the bedroom window.
Haut de Cagnes has the reputation that you never know what you will find behind its front doors and this house certainly doesn’t disappoint, so why not come and discover La Vieille Boulangerie for yourself! Sleeps 5 or possibly 6 with 2 children on the sofa bed – not suitable for small children with the open staircase and stone floors.
Restaurants and cafes are a 5 minute walk away from this Haut de Cagnes rental home, as is the town below with its food market, supermarket, bakeries, chemist, bank and selection of shops. The town is well services with buses going to most places on the Cote d’Azur, plus there is a train station. The sea is a 25-30 minute walk and a free beach bus is provided from the town in July and August.
