Why MAGGIE CADDEN chose Vence
We fell in love with the beautiful cite historique and enclosed medieval village. It is absolutely charming with cafes, restaurants, art galleries and once you step outside the walls there are all the conveniences of modern life, banks supermarkets, shops. The town is located in the hills above Nice and 20 minutes from Nice airport. It within easy driving distance from Cannes, Monaco and Italy.

You won't regret renting this home!
Perfect location, perfect views, perfect amount of space in the home! Very clean. Great artwork around the house! Anything that you may need is within walking distance! it was wonderful to have fresh bread and croissants every morning! Great communication with Maggie (the homeowner). The property manager was there to greet us upon our arrival. A perk was having a garage as we did rent a car to visit Italy for a day as well as other cities. You will not be disappointed if you choose this place! So much history in the area - an amazing trip!
BETTER THAN PERFECT
Perfect means that everything you expect has been done satisfactorily. But Maggie’s place in Vence so far exceeds expectations as to be virtually one of a kind. The home, actually built into the medieval wall of the village, combines historical significance, artistic elegance, and great charm with every modern convenience. The town of Vence too is utterly enchanting and the entire experience was magical. And Maggie’s on-site representative was all that one might ask. The one caveat is that the home is built on three floors so climbing stairs is a must – but though I am somewhat disabled this was a price well worth paying since the place itself is so exceptional. WE RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY AND WITHOUT RESERVATION.
We are so happy you appreciated the history and elegance of our home. As you point out, it is perfectly situated within the walls of the utterly charming medieval village of Vence. We agree with you that when visiting a village and living in a private house, rather than a hotel, that the quality of this home becomes an important part of your holiday. It contributes to your participating in the life of the village. We hope you can return some day.
Wir hatten zu fünft (2 Erwachsene und 3 Kinder) eine wunderbare Zeit in dem schönen Haus.
Das Haus liegt ruhig und doch nach wenigen Schritten mitten im Leben, die Geschäfte des täglichen Bedarfs und der Markt sind fußläufig gut zu erreichen, ebenso Restaurants und Bistros. Der Blick auf die Berge ist unvergleichlich.
Man sollte im Auge behalten, dass es sich um ein sehr altes Haus handelt, das von der Innenausstattung her vor einiger Zeit generalüberholt wurde, jedoch einen gewissen charmanten Charakter hat. Für sehr kleine Kinder ist es aufgrund der Treppen eher schwierig. Für uns war es perfekt, da jeder seinen Rückzugsort finden konnte wenn gewünscht, gleichzeitig gab es genügend Platz im großen Wohn-Esszimmer oder auf der schönen Dachterrasse. Erwähnenswert sind die schönen Gemälde, die jedes Zimmer schmücken, und die Wandgestaltung.
Die Strände in der näheren Umgebung waren mit dem Auto gut innerhalb 20-30 Minuten zu erreichen, genau wie zwei große Einkaufszentren.
Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin war immer prompt und sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend, ebenso die Betreuung vor Ort; wir haben uns gut aufgehoben gefühlt.
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house.
The environment is calm but within a few steps, you can reach grocery stores, the market and nice restaurants. The view on the mountains is unique.
You should keep in mind that it is a very old house that has been completely overhauled recently but it has a very charming special character.
It might be difficult for very small children because of the stairs.
It was perfect for us (2 adults and 3 children) because each of us could retreat in his own room if required, or we had enough space to get together in the vast living room or on the beautiful rooftop terrace.
I should mention the beautiful paintings the rooms are decorated with.
Within 20-30 minutes, you can reach the beaches as well as 2 big shopping malls.
The communication with the landlady was always prompt and very friendly and obliging. The support on our arrival and during our stay was perfect; we were in the best keeping.
Fantastically placed and spacious property. Would love to stay again.
Great comms. Accurate description. Nicely decorated. Generously proportioned, easily could be made to sleep more but owner has instead gone for a whole experience. Loved our stay. Thanks Maggie!
We are delighted you loved your stay and appreciated the spacious rooms
in our home. We are pleased to be able to provide our guests with a large
spacious and beautifully decorated home. The accommodation, where
you spend a good part of your vacation time, is as important as the sightseeing and recreation, which are plentiful in the South of France.
Easter in Vence
Had a wonderful stay in Vence over Easter. Maggies house is ideally located in the centre of the town so we were able to walk out in the evenings and enjoy the town. Also enjoyed some early evening drinks on the terrace with wonderful views of the mountains and distant views of the sea. House was well equipped with all we needed and had plenty of character and space.
