About Janine Hoedemaker

In 2004 we moved from Holland/Amsterdam to Vence with our 3 young children. We lived almost 10 years in this beautiful house we renovated along the way. Now we live in a house in the old centre of Vence, we enjoy as well. We always remember "Les Lucioles" as a lovely place. We keep a lot of good memories! You can be sure that the villa will give you all the comfort you need in a peaceful surrounding with great view on the valley of St. Paul de Vence and close to the centre of Vence.

As we are Dutch we had to learn the French language which is not easy; we made a lot of French friends and our children are totally bi-langual; so this helps a lot.

Janine Hoedemaker purchased this villa in 2000

Why Janine Hoedemaker chose Nice Area

We love this area as it is vey easy to acces from the highway and lies in a quiet neigbourhood. Still you are very close to the interesting places like Nice, Cannes, Monaco and Italy. The international airport of Nice is only 20 min by car.

In Winter this area offers plenty possibilities for skiing; Valberg, Auron, Isola 2000 are some exemples.

A lot of activities are possible in sportive, cultural or natural ways; donnot hesitate to ask us. One day you go to the beach, and the other day you can visit Monaco and or Italy.

But you come for silence, then you stay at home at the pool, you have every thing you need.

The weather is almost always sunny and there are a lot of tourists in the big cities like Cannes, Grasse, St.Paul, Nice, menton, Ventimiglia, San Remo etc.

What makes this villa unique

Panoramic view. Close to (15min by car) to big shoppingmall called Cap3000.

Quiet place.

as of october 2015 new shoppingmall opened only 10 min drive:Polygone Riviera, Cagnes

The property more than lived up to expectations.

  • 4 of 5

The house was fabulous ,the pool fantastic and the views from the upper terrace were breathtaking.There was a wonderful boulangerie just a few minutes walk away . Vence itself was a very short distance away and it was a splendid place with many excellent restaurants and street markets everyday .

We were a family of 7 adults and 3 small children and the house accommodated us very well.Our holiday was magical and we cant wait to return .

Lovely Villa with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We were a family party of 12 (age range 9 to 77 years) and stayed here for one week. The villa was spacious and homely with a stunning balcony off the sitting room with views across to St Paul de Vence. The swimming pool was a great hit with the children and adults alike, deep enough to dive into. When dining at home we ate outside on the veranda or balcony, each of which had their own kitchen. Both kitchens very well equipped. The drive had an automatic gate so felt very safe and secure. Quiet neighbourhood. The town of Vence is wonderfully traditional and unspoilt and is walking distance if you don't mind hills or is a short drive away. Lots of lovely shops and restaurants with a market in the town square on a Friday morning. We all had a wonderful time and highly recommend. Great base for exploring both the coast and mountains. 20 minute drive from Nice airport. Thank you Janine for your welcome and help during our stay.
