Do you fancy living in a beautiful village with magnificent views over the Provence countryside? If so, then this property could be for you.
Where is it?
 
The property is located in the ancient perched village of Auribeau-sur-Siagne in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of south-eastern France. 
 
The village, which has just 450 inhabitants, offers quiet, rural charm however the property is not far from local amenities such as shops and restaurants and everything that the Siagne Valley has to offer. 
 
Auribeau-sur-Siagne is a historically important location which dates back to at least the ninth century when the hilltop offered a view of the Bay of Cannes. 
 
The house is located a mere 10 km from the Plage du Midi in Cannes, with other parts of the Mediterranean coast also within striking distance, and there is a golf course and port in the nearby town of Mandelieu. 
 
Nice Airport is just 37 km away and offers regular flights to the UK and most other European countries.

How much does it cost?
 
The property has been reduced from €445,200 to €415,000 (£366,487 or $485,806) depending on exchange rates.
 
Describe the property
 
The house comprises 126m2 of livable space spread over three floors, with two separate entrances. 
 
This includes two very spacious bedrooms (converted from three originally), two bathrooms (one with a bath, both with showers), a large lounge/diner and even a sauna.
 
One of the bedrooms is currently used as an office space and has its own entrance.
 
Meanwhile, the kitchen is traditional in style and fully equipped.
 
The house, which dates from the 1700s, has been lovingly renovated, with its original character and period features, including exposed roof beams, an ancient well and an original fireplace, all preserved.
 
The roof terrace has been enclosed with windows that slide open when desired and has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and even the sea.
 
Why buy it?
 
Estate agent Leggett Immobilier says:  "Nestled in the centre of the beautiful, quaint perched village of Auribeau-sur-Siagne, this village house radiates tradition and charm of quiet village life.
 
"Be careful – as soon as you visit this ultra-charming village house in the heart of this perched, historic village – you will fall in love with it."
