A family holiday in Vence
The property was ideal, well furnished, clean and tidy with beautiful gardens and a lovely pool. Jose and his family were excellent hosts who made us feel very welcome. Highly reccomended.
Very charming house and lovely garden with amazing views and great access to local attractions
We were made very welcome by the owners, who take great care of their lovely home. The swimming pool is nice and deep, and outdoors there’s lots of shade and places to sit, relax and eat, including a terrace which is away from the pool and very tranquil. The views of the hills and distant mountains are spectacular and the location is very quiet. Inside, the house is charming, with all the essentials that you could need including plenty of bedding, towels, crockery etc. The double beds are spacious, and the the two single beds are ideal for two younger children.
The walled town of Vence is a ten minute drive and has lots and lots of places to eat, as well as a supermarket, patisseries etc.
St Paul de Vence is also very close and is beautiful with narrow cobbled alleys (no cars) and full of expensive art galleries. We also visited the Gorges du Loup, Nice and Antibes, but in August parking was pretty difficult wherever we went. Nevertheless, it’s a great location for exploring the whole of the Côte D’Azur.
Overall, a lovely quiet house where you felt away from all the hustle and bustle.
We enjoyed our stay very much - thank you!
Immaculate and charming house with beautiful garden & pool
My family stayed for 3 weeks at the lovely home of Jose and Colette in July. It was a great base to explore the entire Alpes-Maritimes area - whether the coastal towns and beaches, hilltop villages, or some more serious hiking in the pre-alps. Each day, when we returned from our adventures, the house and garden was an oasis of peaceful beauty, comfort and cool evening breezes. The pool is lovely and managed to stay refreshingly cool even on hot days. In the evenings, we looked forward to sitting on the back terrace with our cheese and rose to enjoy the lovely views of the Bauo de St Jeannet and surrounding hills. The house itself was spotlessly clean upon arrival and well stocked for our 3 week stay, which I especially appreciated. The house is furnished with taste and nicer than we expected. The house is cozy and spacious at the same time. We were usually 6 people at any given time and found plenty of space to spread out between the garden and house. The bedrooms are well laid out, each with an ensuite bathroom. There is a convenient safety guard/fence for the pool which we put up when our two small nieces came to visit. Jose and Colette are lovely hosts. Jose took immaculate care of the garden and pool over our 3 week stay and was always available to answer any questions or help us. When we left a few items behind on the property, they graciously mailed the items for us. Please note that you will need a car for the property. While the town of Vence is just 5-7 minutes by car, it is really too far to walk to the nearest boulangerie and shops. Merci Jose et Collette pour un tres beau sejour et j'espere que nous pouvons revenir bientot!
A fantastic property with lovely views, beautiful gardens and very friendly owners
Our little family (mum, dad, grandma, toddler and baby) had a fabulous week staying here. We were met by the owners Jose and Colette who were super friendly and showed us around their lovely home. They also left us some lovely local produce to sample including their own olive oil which was delicious. Just one of a number of nice touches which really made our stay. The inside of the house had everything we needed for a stay with our family and felt like a real home from home. The best bit though was the really stunning gardens and pool which were a real oasis in the heat and we will always remember as the place where our daughter first learned to swim! Thank you Jose and Colette for a lovely week!
A Perfect Holiday Home
My family has just spent a glorious week at this beautiful, holiday home on the outskirts of Vence. We were welcomed by Mathieu and his mother, Colette, who generously provided a bottle of home-made olive oil and a jar of delicious home-made orange marmalade for our stay, as well as a vase of fresh flowers in the living room. They also provided a Craquelin Vençois - a buttery almond and honey cake topped with whole almonds and icing sugar only available in Vence - it was yummy! The three bedrooms were comfortable, each with an en suite bath and/or shower room, the kitchen was well-equipped and the outdoor kitchen area had a sink, a fridge and two barbecues, one gas and one for charcoal! The pool was perfect, especially for our grandchildren aged two and five - the shallow steps made it easy for them to get in and out. Each evening as darkness fell, we sat out on the back terrace overlooking the mountains and the distant Alps, drinking Provençal rosé and wishing we could stay longer. Vence, a ten minute drive away, has much to offer too. The Cathedal is worth a visit, if only for the Chagall mosaic, and Matisse's beautiful Chapel of the Rosary is a must see.
Spent a relaxing week in this beautiful private house. The garden is very pretty and the children loved the pool, there is even an outdoor kitchen. The house itself is very well equipped with lovely furnishings and comfy beds, the views from the balcony are amazing. The location was perfect for us, you will need a car but not too far from Nice airport and close enough to Vence town and amenities, lots of lovely restaurants. The stunning village of Saint Paul De Vence is close and mountains and waterfalls of Gorges de Loup are worth a trip. The owners met us at the house and were very welcoming, friendly people. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back.
