    Ivan (Bounine) Bunin’s villas in Grasse

    by Muscovite Written Aug 14, 2009

    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.

    The greens and gardens of Grasse

    Belvedere at the Parc Communal de la Corniche

    Not in the centre, but more in the outskirts of Grasse, this town of parfume, hides it's parcs and gardens.
    To be mentioned should be the Parc communal de la Corniche, which is situated just outside the centre against the hillside. From here a magnificent view that has been added some hight through a belvedere (watch tower).
    Another wonderful garden, that also shows the flowers that are used for many parfumes, is the "Jardin de la princesse Pauline". From here you can see over the Esterel-mountains and all the way up to the sea.
