About the property

2 Bedroom+2bathroom Villa with private pool and landscaped gardens.

This fabulously situated property with magnificent views across the Riviera is only 1.5 kilometres (by foot) from the town centre of Vence and has a south-facing private pool and multi-level gardens. The comfortable villa was entirely redecorated in 2012 to a high standard and contains two bedrooms, one en-suite bathroom, an extra bathroom, a large living room with a sofa bed. There is a covered terrace with a dining table (for lunch in the shade) as well as a comfortable seating area. The pool terrace is the perfect spot for sun-bathing as it catches the sun for the entire day. It is also perfect for dining under the stars.

There is much to enjoy on the French Riviera : the sea of course, the villages, the food and a multitude of world-class museums.

A variety of sports can be practised in the vicinity, including mountaineering, canyoning, hang-gliding, water ski-ing, scuba-diving to mention but a few.

Vence itself is a beautiful walled city with excellent food shops, art galleries, fine restaurants and a cinema, in fact everything you need within easy walking distance. Further afield, there is the recently opened shopping centre "Polygone" in Cagnes-sur-Mer which is a sophisticated and attractive complex. Besides a wide variety of shops and restaurants, there is a casino and multiplex cinema.This centre is 10 kms away or a fifteen minute drive from the villa.

Perfect for our needs and a bit special.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Vence, thank you.

The house was lovely - probably the nicest place we`ve stayed, very civilised and relaxing. it was really helpful to have some things in the fridge for our first night.

The weather was generally kind to us and we enjoyed trips to Monaco for the F1 and a visit to the Verdon Gorge, along with climbing trips to St Jeanette and La Turbie.

Paul was a great help, especially when Sara locked herself out!

Its always a bit of a gamble arranging this sort of holiday over the internet but your communication has been spot on and you`ve been true to your word right through.

All in all a good experience for us.

Super Villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, well presented, with privacy, and great open views to the coastline.

The pool terrace and gardens were well kept and provided a delightful as we dined outside daily.

Terry (the owner) was very professional to deal with from the minute we booked, and handled all queries in prompt and efficient manner.

Vence itself is an attractive town, with plenty character and a plethora of restaurants.

Looking forwards to a return visit.

Perfect bills in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second stay in this amazing villa! The property meets all expectations and is the perfect base. There is everything that you could possibly need in the villa...very well equipped and decorated very tastefully. Terry is always available to answer any questions and always ensures that she checks that all is ok with your stay. The swimming pool is a very good size (especially as we have a 15 and 18 year old) and the surrounding gardens and patio are perfect giving complete privacy.

Vence itself is a wonderful town with an excellent selection of restaurants and a good range of shops. We also enjoy eating at Le Pigeonnier restaurant, always great food and friendly service.

We will certainly be returning to the villa for a third time at some point.
