About the property

Villa in Vence, Cote d'Azur - Panoramic Sea, Coast and City view

Our very luxurious Provencal villa, redesigned, equipped and furnished during 2008 without any compromises, offers you the best position in Vence with a breathtaking panorama view over the city, the coast and the Mediterranean. Here you find secluded terraces with sun from sunrise to sunset in a quiet and calm residential area, only 10 minutes walking distance to Vence city. The villa hides above a grove of olive trees and is completely undisturbed. It offers around 320 square meters under roof in various levels. Up to 10 persons can stay comfortable in the villa, having 5 bedrooms, all with air conditioning and own bathrooms. The heated salt-water pool is equipped with a swim-trainer and the covered terrace with a barbeque. The kitchen is build in modern Italian design and equipped semi-professional. The bar is equipped with a wine-fridge and the living room with an open fireplace. The villa has its own Petanque court and guests can use our own tennis court 10 minutes away.

About The Owner

We, Joan and Lars, are from Denmark. In 1996 we sold our company within the IT Industry and we left this business in 2001 with a clear target, to create something unique within the 'vacation industry' - far away from meeting rooms and business travelling. The idea was to create a very personal and luxurious place, smelling of good food and wines, in a nice climate and wonderful surroundings. We moved to St. Paul de Vence, where we we turned an exquisite Provencal villa into an Exclusive Guest House. Today we have expanded with a very luxurious Villa above Vence, placed in the very best position you can imagine. You can see this villa under FR4508 or on our own home page.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why The Owner chose Nice Area

Vence is a living city in the 'backyard' of the Cote d'Azur, where you find everything you need. At this special location above the historic city of Vence, you have an extraordinary panoramic view, - difficult to match elsewhere. At the same time you are very close to the major cities Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo. In winter time you are 1½ hours from very good ski areas and you find +10 golf courses open all year around within ½ hour.

What makes this villa unique

Best location you can get in the area!

And here you find Italian design and Scandinavian comfort on a very high level. A few examples, - our bed linen has been through our own laundry, dried in the sun and mangled carefully, - we clean the villa two times per week - we offer various other services like cooking service, airport pick-up and car-rental.

World class all around

This villa is true to the pictures and the ratings it has received. We have rented numerous villas over the years and this is one of the best. Joan and Lars were extremely responsive and flexible in helping us arrange the best dates for our vacation as well as giving us insight into the surrounding area. We could not have had better hosts...and now friends!

The house was spotless and well equipped to allow us to relax, cook, grill, swim, play bocce, or just hang out on the patio and enjoy the wines from the area. The pool was sparkling and was perfect for hanging out all evening. The special touches provided included plush robes and slippers and a wonderful welcome basket of wine and fresh fruit. All of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms and offer simple but comfortable surroundings. With the views in this house, you won't spend much time in the bedrooms anyway!

The villa is challenging to find but Lars met us at an easier location and personally drove us to the villa and walked us thru the entire house. As you can tell from the view in the pictures, this house is on a hill so it does require a car rental but it is within walking distance of Vence, which is a lovely town with everything you would need.

Overall, we could not have asked for a better house for our vacation and Joan and Lars made it even that much better! We hope to return for another vacation in the future!

Everything you could wish in Vence

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa with a great reception from the owners. The villa is superbly comfortable and great for a wonderful family holiday. We had nine people there for two weeks on two seperate occasions 2013 and 2015. We have rented a number of villas around the Med. This one is, by far the best.

We recommend the airport pick up and car rental. Saves a lot of time, especially at peak summer times. Clean, crisp five star accomodation.

Lovely, well appointed, great view.

  • 4 of 5

The villa is beautifully set up in the hills just outside Vence looking towards the Mediterranean. All rooms were lovely and comfortable, with slippers and soft robes supplied. We were a group of 9 and there was plenty of room to congregate or to slip away to relax and read a book. Great kitchen and the extra dining area which was outside, was a treat. Chef/owner Lars and his crew are delightful and we urge others to use their services for at least one dinner. Accommodations are 5-star. I gave it a 4 star for these reasons: it was difficult to find; the steep incline to the villa made walking to and from Vence impossible unless you were extremely fit. Highly recommend this place if you have a car.
