About Lindsay Phillips
This is our holiday home. For this reason we hope guests will fall in love with Vence too. Our apartment is very comfortable and fully equiped so that you can experience Vence as your home away from home.
Lindsay Phillips purchased this apartment in 2005
Why Lindsay Phillips chose Vence
We chose Vence because I found it to be so charming pretty and unspoilt, and I chose the apartment because it had character, not just a 'box' and because of the ambiance and lovely open view of mountains and sea, and it is often full of luminous light. Also, one can walk to all the shops - handy for your fresh croissant in the morning. We are on the road leading into the medieval "old City Historique'. The light down here is what the artists talk about. As Henri Matisse wrote to poet Louis Aragon “When I realized I would see that light every morning, I could not believe my good fortune,” Also, we are only 200 metres into the heart of Vence 'Old City' and only 25 minutes from Nice and 20 minutes to the airport. It is a bonus to be surrounded by the history, art galleries and atmosphere, not to mention the wonderful fresh produce and local markets. Fresh natural spring water since Roman times available from the fountain on our street, and there is nothing nicer than walking into the medieval city to choose your fresh hot bagette and croissants each morning and eating them on the balcony! And because you don't need to get the car out, it is much more relaxing and you don't have to worry about driving after dinner! So you can see it has its benefits!
What makes this apartment unique
The apartment has a welcoming ambiance, the benefit of sun all afternoon until it sets over the mountains and the great location: Because we are high up on ave. du colonel meyere, I believe we may be the closest apartment to the Old City that has such a nice open view and yet only 200 metres along the road and you are in the centre of historic Vence life. You are not 'overlooked' and you can sit on the balcony and enjoy the panorama. Very short walk indeed to the medieval walled 'city' and you can experience Vence as it is - a charming, bustling and authentic little French town with a lovely astmosphere which has managed to remain unspoilt. You can manage without a car as the bus services are good and run every 45-60 minutes until about 9pm in summer. The 7 minute drive down from Vence down to the famous village of St Paul de Vence is great. Or take the windy road up to St Jeannet or to Tourrettes. Buses to airport, Nice and sorrounding village. If you have a car then you park opposite in the little car park.
