Inland from the Cannes area lies the town of Grasse. A sizeable Riviera town, it is mainly known for its perfume industry. Grasse is often regarded as the perfume capital of the world and visitors travel from far and wide to visit its famous perfume factories such as Fragonard and Molinard. Grasse prides itself on its perfume industry, creating luxury products using local flora.
Grasse provides the perfect climate in which many flowers flourish, inspiring some of its most popular fragrances. The floral gardens of the Musée International de la Parfumerie provide the perfect setting in which to explore the native flowers to the region such as roses, jasmine, violets and mimosas.
Aside from its floral fame, Grasse is a town full of history and visitors are often drawn to its impressive cathedral. Venture inside and you will find beautiful architecture and original artwork.
The outskirts of Grasse and its suburban villages are populated with luxury villas which attract many prospective buyers. Villas for sale in Grasse offer buyers a tranquil location, within easy reach of Riviera hubs such as Cannes and Antibes, as well as open countryside for hiking or bike rides.
One village in particular that attracts attention from buyers is the quaint Roquefort les Pins. Just outside of Grasse it is ideal for buyers looking for luxury villas for sale in a sleepy, provincial French village. A little of the beaten track but offering all the conveniences and easy access to the rest of the Riviera, Grasse and its neighbouring villages, Roquefort-les-Pins and Peymeinade, are ideal for buyers looking for that perfect luxury property to buy.
