The beautiful and historic town of Grasse is an easy 5 minute walk from Villa des Parfums. Everything you need is easily accessible on foot. So if you’ve always wanted to experience real French living and dreamed of waking up and walking to the bakery for baguettes and warm croissants, Villa des Parfums is ideally located. In the picturesque, winding, cobble-stoned streets you can explore the many beautiful boutiques, sample French beers, wines and cuisine in the many cafes, bistros and restaurants and stock up on supplies at the local supermarket! And on Saturday mornings you can experience the open-air market where seasonal, locally grown fruit and vegetables, cheeses, olives and other local products are available.
Grasse is famously known as the ‘Balcony of the Cote d’Azur’, perched in the foothills of the Southern Alps and overlooking the Mediterranean, whether you are looking for a peaceful sanctuary or an action-packed vacation, Grasse has it all.
Being known around the globe as the world’s Perfume Capital is the claim to fame of this medieval town. The perfume industry has captured the imagination of the world, and a town, perfectly situated between mountains and Mediterranean, surrounded by flower fields is still every bit as romantic and appealing today as it must have been back in the 18th century when the perfume industry began.
