About Carmela Blackman
We live in the UK with our two daughters. We fell in love with Le Cottage from the moment we walked up the gated drive. After purchasing in 2003 it then took us a further 5 years to renovate including the addition of a pool which overlooks a magnificent view down a conservation valley of pine trees. We wanted to create somewhere really special to go, full of beautiful things. Each time we arrive we all still feel excited and have had some wonderful times with family and friends. We now have regular guests who revisit each year and they also feel like its their home from home.

Why Carmela Blackman chose La Colle-sur-Loup
We love the area with its diversity from historic towns, beautiful walled villages, mountains and having the sea close by. The way of life, food, wine and of course the sunshine. A big plus is it's great access to the airport only 15 mins away but being on the edge of the countryside. Nearest train station 10 mins, motorway 7 mins. Its close to Nice, Cannes, Antibes and only 40 mins to Monaco or over to Italy in just under an hour. It has great links to pretty much anywhere along the French Riviera . The area is so diverse being close to beaches, mountains, river walks and all amenities whether you want to play golf, tennis or visit one of the beautiful hill top villages like St Paul only a 5 minute drive away. There is so much to do and never enough time. Although it is close for accessibility it is tucked away for when you just want to relax away from it all.
What makes this Villa unique
As a family there are so many things we love about Le Cottage du Loup. Its in a great location and is a wonderful place to wake up everyday. You can while away the hours just relaxing by the private pool admiring the view. Many of our guests intend on visiting so many places but say once they arrive they stock up on provisions and wine and spend most of their days by the pool, cooking alfresco on the range BBQ. Or go for a stroll down to the River Loup. Don't take our word for it have a read of our guests reviews Its close proximity to to visit endless places being close to Nice, Cannes and Antibes is just perfect whilst still feeling away from it all. You have all you need in La Colle Sur Loup village and an open market on Saturday mornings. Please see additional location information for more details on restaurants, places to visit for the whole family, art,culture, and various sports. We have a wonderful team who look after our guests if needed. Our House manager who speaks several languages including English is on hand should you need any extra advice on the local area.
