The holiday apartment is located on the ground floor of a three-storey ‘maison de village’, overlooking the Verrerie de Biot. The spacious and quiet square in front is still known under its former name, ‘Place de l’Airette’ which means something like ‘little resting place’. Even during peak season only a few tourists find their way here to enjoy a glance over the valley and the Verrerie. The foundations of the house are sunk into the volcanic rock of the hill, and were originally for a barn, constructed approximately 500 years ago. This explains the unusual thickness of the structural walls, which ensure that the apartment stays pleasantly cool and quiet during the summer months.
The apartment consists of a small bedroom (1.40m double bed), a bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin, a living room with an integrated kitchenette. The total size is approx. 25m2 and comfortably accommodates two people. An additional person can sleep on the sofabed in the living room. A cot is available on demand. The satellite TV receives diverse channels in German, French and English. The open terrace in front of the studio is reserved for our guests: to relax after a day at the beach, to enjoy a “Pastis” before dinner, to read, or whatever pleases you.
Most appealing is the ideal location of the apartment. It is very quiet, and yet is in the heart of the village, where direct car access is not possible. When you arrive, you can unload your car close to the apartment. Parking, however, is outside the village fortifications, where there are several free public parking areas to choose from. The apartment is then reached after a few minutes walk through the old village itself. In our opinion Biot is one of the loveliest villages on the Côte d’Azur and despite its popularity it has maintained its charm and authenticity and it offers a lot of activities for locals and tourists in every season.
