If you are really looking at property for sale in Cote d’Azur that will give you total peace and quiet, then the beautiful village of Bar sur Loup is for you. No longer will you have to listen to the drone of engines whilst sipping a glass of your favourite wine because Bar sur Loup has banned cars.
This authentic, almost medieval looking village is situated on a rocky spur with breathtaking views of the Loup River valley. Bar sur Loup towers at a height of 350 metres over half of the Loup Valley and is only half an hour’s travel from the cultural hub of Cannes.
As well as unbelievable views and peace and tranquillity there’s still much to see and do. You could take a guided tour of the village or visit a historic 13th century castle and church. There’s also a number of sporting activities, such as karting, golf, paragliding and fishing as well as marked hiking trails for you to follow to really take advantage of the local environment and spectacular views.
There are a number of hotels and restaurants in and surrounding the village and also some local shops and a pharmacy. There is also a very special pottery shop at one end of the village and the tourism office which sells wine, honey and herbs.
Property for sale in Bar sur Loup ranges from luxurious villas with swimming pools and patios to refurbished authentic town houses that are placed around Bar sur Loup’s narrow cobblestone lanes and small squares with fountains and washhouses.
This unspoilt village is a hidden paradise and you must take a look if you are looking for property for sale in Cote d’Azur. There are surprisingly good transport links for a village so hidden away in the hills, with regular bus services that run several times a day and only a short drive from Nice International Airport that has several flights to the UK each day.
Bar sur Loup is a very special place that enjoys enough tourism to enable restoration, but not enough to spoil the tranquil town and idyllic setting. Locals and visitors can lose many a warm Mediterranean day or evening relaxing in a little bit of paradise high up in the Sarrée plateau.
