Why Sylbe chose Vence
Wa have lived here during seven years and we loved it because everything is close and simple, shops and restaurants are at a walking distance , and we avoided the stress to always have to take your car and park it. The house is ancient , it can be seen from its materials and volumes, but we loved to refurbish it.
What makes this Villa unique

We had a lovely stay at Sylvies house.
Sylvie is a very good host and gave us lots of ideas and information about events during our stay in Vence. It is very clear the she wants her guests to have a good experience in her house.
The house is even more pretty in real life than in the pictures and there is also a nice garden on the ground which is not pictured. The entire ground is fenced, which allowed our dog to run around without us having to worry about if she could escape. The house and the outdoor area is very well equipped, we do not have a single negative comment about the house or outdoor area.
The house is located near supermarkets and it's 5-10 minutes walk to the old town with lots of nice restaurants.
Vence is a small provencal town with its local products markets, its historical center. It is close to the sea (pebble ones being the nearest and sand beaches a bit further) and touristic spots (Grasse , the city of perfumers, Nice and its famous prom, Monaco so unique, and Cannes so famous thanks to its cinema festival). The area is not only famous for its sunny climate but is worth being visited during the fall or spring, when temperatures are lower although days usually keep on being sunny.
The famous Modern Art foundation Maeght is 5 min away, proposing amazing permanent collections (Modigliani, Calder, Picasso). Antibes hosted Picasso , Vence was inhabited by Matisse,..
The area is characterized by its beautiful villages built on top of the hills like St Paul de Vence, Gourdon and so many others.
In winter , you can go skiing in Auron, Isola2000 (1hour and 30minutes drive)
