Bunin’s villas in Grasse

by Muscovite

Hi,

Does anyone by any chance know anything new about Ivan Bunin’s villas in Grasse?

Re: Bunin’s villas in Grasse

The silence is deafening, Moscow. Villa Jeanette must be known to the archivist of the local Grasse library. Or at least some local high-end Estate Agent.

I did online search but drew a blank, as presumably did yourself. The outlook is not good.

Sometimes its not the destination but what we learn along the way that is the reward.

Hi Andrew,

Not that I am very much surprised.
Even the Rus-France forum have no clue, and they used to be a good source.

No problem, I think I’ll find them both, if it doesn’t rain - Grasse is not a very big place.

Re: Ivan Bounine’s villas in Grasse

by Muscovite

This is what I've got from Office de Tourisme in Grasse. It looks like it takes much more time to google-map these place than the actual walk from Gare Routiere in Grasse:

Villa La Rivolte (earlier Mont-Fleuri), chemin des Lierres
Belle demeure du 19 siecle, transformee en chambres d’hotes.
Au nord de Grasse. Le chemin des Lierres donne dans le boulevard Alice de Rothschild


Villa Belvedere, avenue Henri Benard
Prendre la direction du Jardin de la Princesse Pauline. A la statue de Bounine, se tourner face a la mer, sur le trottoir de gauche, emprunter le chemin du Vieux Logis, descendre les escaliers. Une plaque concernant Bounine est apposee a l’entree de la propriete.


Villa Jeannette, 35 boulevard Georges Clemenceau
Route Napoleon. Avant le parking de la piscine Altitude 500, a gauche. Une plaque commemorative est fixee sur le rocher, a l’entree de la propriete.

Well done Moscow!
Interesting whether they are all broken into apartments or still in single-handed ownership. Count the door-buzzers! And the nationality of any cars in the driveway. Cap Ferrat has many russian-registered cars...

Travel Tips for Grasse

Visit a local outdoor market

by Beausoleil

You can get almost anything at the Saturday market in Grasse. We got bread, cheese and fruit for a picnic.

The flower and vegetable market is beautiful and it really is fun to watch the residents shop.

To find it, just follow all the people. Everyone will be walking to the market. Or reverse and go against the folks walking away carrying bags of produce and flowers. This might be easier.

Walk around the old town

by sue_stone

The old town in Grasse is great to walk around.

There are tiny streets that wind around between old buildings and up and down narrow steps. Some pass through arched tunnels and sometimes open onto large squares with cafes.

Named after one of Napoleons successful Generals. I guess the unsucessful ones were not around long. Like there are probably very few unsuccessful skydivers around.

The significance of the door is that it is carved in solid walnut and bears an important french civic emblem. This apparently makes it interesting.

Grasse - Perfumeries and a Flower Market

by Beausoleil

"A History of Perfume"

Most people visit Grasse for the perfume . . . an excellent reason to visit. Fragonard has a very nice perfume museum with tours in several languages. The tour ends, fittingly, at the gift shop. This, of course, is my favorite part of the experience.

I've been there enough to know exactly what perfumes I want, but I love to smell them all anyway. In addition to perfumes, they have marvelous soaps. I like them so well that I use mail order when I run out. They smell good, look good and are triple milled so they last forever . . . well, not quite forever or I wouldn't have to mail order them!

It's a fun experience.

"Don't miss the Grasse Flower market"

The flower market is at its showiest on Saturdays in summer. Don't forget your camera. The colors are unbelieveable. The whole market area is terrific. The flowers surround the charming old fountain.

And . . . there is a vegetable market, a cheese market, a meat market and breads for sale. It's also lots of fun to watch local buyers. They know each other and all the vendors and they know exactly what they want. It's a great way to spend a morning.

Buy some flowers for your hotel room!

"Can vegetables be pretty?"

Of course they can. The vegetables rival the flowers in beauty at the central market. You are surrounded by flowers, vegetables, fountains, lovely old old houses and lots of local shoppers.

This is a great place to start your search for the perfect picnic lunch to take into the hills outside town and be so happy you came to France.
