About the property

Villa in Vence, Cote D'Azur, Alpes Maritime, France - Very Quiet Hills Location, 3 Min Drive to Village, 10 Mins to Beach

Located between Saint Paul, Vence and La Gaude, 20 min from Nice airport. Beautiful traditional Provencal house with new big landscaped garden (30000sqft), huge trees and new infinity pool. Unspoiled views over the mountains, hills and villages. Most of our guest find the place so enchanting that they rather enjoy and stay in, around the pool, listening to birds, watching squirrels, and all sorts of animals. From the house you can also enjoy a short walk via a roman path to the next village (La gaude) in 30 min. Baby and kids features, such as bed and chairs are available on request. The pool has an alarm system and can be completely closed. Ideal to stay in the most wanted and sunny region of France, but with perfect serenity and away from the crowds. It is indispensable to have a car to drive around, yet all amenities, as supermarkets, great restaurants, golf courses, beaches and mountains are very close by. You can also enjoy the nightlife of Cannes that is only 25 min away.

About Yann

Hello To all, I am Yann, I live in London although this is my family house. Too big for us now, but it's such an incredible location that I have refurbished and improved. The house has a real soul and has been updated to modern standard. The pool and garden is a dream, A/C in every room etc.

I am quite an international person and I think I understand tenants need pretty well, as I also rent houses for myself. The house is very looked after and designed to make you feel conformable.

Staff will be available if you need anything during your stay.

Kind regards, Yann

Yann purchased this villa in 1973

Why Yann chose Nice Area

This is the house where i born. I have now moved to England but kept the place as this is pure paradise, simple, elegant and peaceful.

You're 10 min away from the sea, 20 min from the mountain, 45 min from ski .... All that in Green hills, in Provence.

What makes this villa unique

I guess the peace of mind is amazing, most of our tenants, particularly the one coming from cities, simply don't get out of the property, enjoying the land, pool and sun .....

No noise will disturb your stay, (the house is at the end of the road), except a few birds and squirrels ....

It is very romantic for couples, and ideal for families.

Comfortable and quirky!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful pool, gardens and views, house is very well equipped and comfortable, interesting decor and comfortable beds, probably not suitable for adventurous toddlers as lots of things (decor bits) everywhere. House is at bottom of very steep narrow road. (A car and a confident driver is a must,) woke up to sound of chickens a donkey and bird song.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most perfect holiday in France and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this villa. Vence is a beautiful village with amazing scenery, close to Nice and the Cote d'Azur yet quieter and more authentic.

The villa was perfect for our group of friends. The pool is great and not overlooked, the grounds are beautifully kept and the views are amazing. The house had everything we needed, and the owner was very friendly (which says something for French people!).

Definitely recommend it.

Stunning pool, quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Situated on the far rural edge of an attractive walled ancient town within a reasonable drive of French Riviera the star attraction is the large infinity pool, patio and rural views. The villa itself is quirky and has bags of character. The rooms are large if a little dark and gloomy. The main bathroom was downright odd with carpet on walls and ceiling. Not ultra modern but comfortable and the owners are very friendly and welcoming.

Amazing Villa, Amazing Location, Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely beautiful and spacious with everything you could possibly need to hand. The pool, gardens and villa are clean, tidy and well kept. Our holiday was one of the best we have ever had and we would not hesitate to return (which is unusual for us). Could not recommend this enough to anyone thinking of holidaying here!!

Super charming hideaway secret in the Cote D'Azur

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem hidden away in Vence. With extraordinary views overlooking the feet of the Alps framed in the lusciousness of a huge swimming pool, huge outside dining alfresco style and privacy of hideaway retreat. Eat, drink and be merry outside, with various spots for a BBQ or pre-dinner drink.

Great for kids too with huge swimming pool, yet the secrecy and privacy you desperately seek for a holiday. Yet so near to all the attractions of Nice, St Tropez and Vence.

Inside is retro style country living - huge mezzanine bedroom for privacy and another one to look out onto the pool.
