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.

This is a very beautiful villa in a lovely, sophisticated town. We stayed for a week with friends and it suited us perfectly. The house, garden & pool are beautifully maintained and immaculate. Everything is exactly as presented including the stunning view. Terry, the owner was a pleasure to deal with and checked with us that everything was ok. Vence is a great base for exploring, and has some very good restaurants. There was a very thoughtful folder with all the information about the house and surroundings that you could need. We loved it and would recommend it to anyone, except perhaps those with small children as the pool is not fenced (which pleased us)

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the rental with the glorious view and the ability to have breakfast, lunch and dinner 'al fresco'. The property was very clean and comfortable, and the gardens and pool were beautifully maintained. We liked Vence very much as we thought it still felt French rather than just a tourist town.

The owners were good to deal with and checked things were all OK on our arrival.

The villa was also stocked with plenty of maps, books, and games for visitors to use plus advice as to where to eat and places to visit.

Le Pigeonnier was a pleasant restaurant in the centre of the old town, good ambience, with reasonably priced food, that we would recommend.
