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.

Paradise escape

  • 5 of 5

I found myself in paradise and enjoyed the quietest and most memorable stay in this 1970's architect designed house at the edge of a green zone and its specular view over the mountains of st jeannet . I loved the elegance of the swimming pool and the pedestrian access to an impressive walk through the woods around to bath in the river below letting me speechlessly happy and ready after to embrace the vibrant surroundings as the two coveted villages of VENCE and ST PAUL DE VENCE and the seaside and fun of CANNES and NICE . It was the perfect nest for me to discover this region blessed by the gods and get the most out of my holidays .

Paradise escape in south of France

  • 5 of 5

I had the most quiet and peaceful stay in this 1970's architect designed house . At the edge of a green zone with a spectacular view over the mountains of St Jeannet , i enjoyed every day Its elegant swimming pool as well as it's pedestrian access to the river and the woods around . It gave me the luxury to avoid the crowd when I wanted to, and being able to jump into the fun around as the proximity of two coveted beautiful villages of VENCE and ST PAUL DE VENCE, the 15' away sea side of NICE and CANNES, make of this place the perfect retreat as well as the perfect nest to discover a region blessed by the gods . I highly recommend the experience.

Very cute Cote d'Azur villa with swimming pool

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a gem. Tucked away in the heart of Vence, this villa is perfectly situated with stunning views of the foot of the Alpes and green lush Provencale rolling countryside. All from the very large outside swimming pool. Inside the villa is unique 70's original architecture and decor in very tasteful style. Big rooms for privacy if needed for any group or family visiting there. The house has a wonderful outside space not just by the pool but an outside eating area with modern BBQ which is great for the balmy summer nights. Drinking local wines and provencale food, this is perfect location for groups wanting to chill out in style or a family wanting to have space for the kids to play and swim. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and happy to help if you have any question. For me this villa really stands out from the rest for its very reasonable price vs the amazing/stunning views and big unique inside space. Here is paradise in the south of France, relaxing and tranquil yet so close to the hussle and bussle of nearby Cannes, St Tropez, Nice and St Paul de Vence.

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.
