Beautiful house near lovely Vence
We had a lovely week in this very beautiful, tasteful, relaxing, private but not isolated house. Cliff was on hand to welcome us and offer discreet assistance as required. We walked into Vence a couple of times and had a very good meal one evening on the terrace at Auberge des Seigneurs but generally did not venture far this time as the pool and garden were so beguiling. We hope to be back.
My husband and I and our 4 children spent a week here and it was just wonderful. The villa is absolutely stunning, the grounds and pool are beautiful.
Cliff next door was a fantastic help and made us feel very welcome.
So close to many beautiful places. We had an amazing time.
Beautiful family holiday
I stayed at this beautiful villa with my husband and our three children we had the most amazing time, the villa is just breath taking, the grounds and the pool are magnificent.
By far our best family holiday.
The Guardian that lives next door was extremely helpful and attentive during our stay.
We will most certainly be returning I highly recommend.
Just returned from a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa. Peaceful and relaxing to sit by the elegant pool but all the amenities of the Cote d'Azur were within easy reach. Fantastic all round.
Beautiful Havan in the Heart of the Azure
My family and self have stayed in this gorgeous villa on many occasions and continue to appreciate the most beautiful gardens, elegant swimming pool and breath taking views. Set in the heart of Vence this excellently located holiday home has the most beautiful bedrooms and gorgeous bathrooms as well as good kitchen and entertaining rooms. We particularly enjoyed how relaxing this villa is however you are a short drive to the beautiful beaches of the Cote Azur as well as being within minutes of excellent restaurants and shops. The large enjoyable outside garden space means long lunches and relaxing dinners in idyllic surroundings are always an attractive option if you cannot pull yourself away from this Riviera gem.
This is one of the best villas my husband and I stayed. Tucked away from the city corners, peaceful, quiet, and the grounds are truly magnificent. We loved the serenity and beauty of the villa. The kitchen and facilities are truly beautiful. The traditional architecture are well preserved with a sense of modern reflection is well built in. We loved the grounds, the trees and the mountain around the villa. Waking up in the morning and looking at the blue sky outside out winder with the most magnificent view was breath taking. We went back several times to stay here. You will love it.
