Close to Cannes, South of France (PRWEB UK) 20 March 2015
Exclusively available for rent with Cote d’Azur Villas – Les Pirettes – the former home of Edith Piaf is the perfect wedding and event venue in the South of France.
With sweeping lawns, a perfect outdoor grass clad stage and the charm and history of a bygone age, the former home of ‘The Little Sparrow’ is set to become a major wedding and event venue in the South of France.
Nestled just outside of Valbonne and screened by majestic pine trees, this is a new gem waiting to be discovered. Both inside and out, Les Pirettes does not disappoint. The magnificent stone ‘bastide’ is clad in Mediterranean bougainvillea and opens into a majestic entrance hall. The interiors are sumptuously Provencal in style, beautifully cool in the summer months and cosy and welcoming in the autumn and winter.
The garden room is ideal for indoor events, with space for up to 60 guests for a seated dinner. The gardens have unlimited space, and will easily accommodate a wedding or event for up to 200 guests. There is on-site parking for up to 100 cars and a separate entrance for the catering and event staff.
Les Pirettes – Home to Piaf in her later years: It is said that she enjoyed the tranquillity of Les Pirettes after a lifetime in the spotlight. Despite the beautifully proportioned living spaces and bedrooms, she spent much of her time in the smallest of the bedrooms. Retaining much from the heritage of Piaf, there is a stone table shaded by oak trees, where it is said she liked to sit and listen to her gramophone. The current owners have preserved all of the grandeur yet peace and tranquillity of this very special home.
Les Pirettes is available for holiday rentals, weddings and events throughout the year.
