Welcome to our villa in St Paul.
This beautiful property – Le Haut des Espinets – is situated in the hills between Nice and Cannes.
From here you have views of the Mediterranean to one side and the Alps to the other.
The property is ideal for large families or friends traveling together.
The estate consists of a main house and an annexe that together can accommodate 18 people in four large suites / apartments and four double rooms. The 7500 m2 ground space offers a lot facilities, including a large saltwater pool, own tennis court, petanque court and covered terrace with large outdoor bar with fireplace and barbecue.
Driveway to the house
When the gate opens and you drive in, you will be met with a beautiful view along the driveway up to the house situated at the top of the hill.
Your car will love to be parked in the open carport with a view to the Mediterranean
When you enter through the front door, you stand in the central hall of the house, with a glance into the common living room. If you look close to the large stones lying on the floor, you can find fossils. The very visible ceiling beams are old and they hide many stories from a former monastery in Portugal.
The Living Room
The large common living room can accommodate a large family gathered around the fireplace or TV. The small living room (you can glimpse it from the central hall) offers a very cozy corner and a small library.
Large sliding doors open onto the garden. At the end of the living room you have access to the dining room and the covered terrace outside.
From the dining room you get a beautiful view into the garden. To the other side you enjoy the view of the bar with a look out into the kitchen. The large central fireplace in the living room is visible through the glass wall and so it provides good heat in both places. The dining table can be provided with an extra plate that seats 12 people
The Central Kitchen
The kitchen is equipped with several refrigerators, two ovens, two dishwashers, freezer and ice maker, a large gas stove and lots of cookware needed when the family is large.
This terrace is the focal point throughout the summer. A large outdoor bar with several refrigerators and a freezer provides cold drinks and ice cream for the kids. Behind the bar is a large outdoor barbecue with raising and lowering grill which allows you to roast e.g. a whole filet of beef. The small individual tables can be assembled to form a communal dining table for up to 20 people
The large saltwater pool provides the setting for life in the garden. More than 12 sunbeds and two chaise lounges in a small alcove ensure space for everyone. The pool is usually heated from mid-April to mid-October.
The Tennis Court
The tennis court is covered with an artificial blanket and litter that gives good freedom of movement. The course overlooks the Mediterranean.
The Petanque course is next to the central kitchen. That gives the one who is cooking a good opportunity to follow the match. Right next door, between the kitchen and the annex behind the bar, there is a cozy terrace from which to follow the game
Le Haut des Espinets has been a small luxury resort for many years. See a small film about Le Haut des Espinets produced by Jyske Bank.
