I’m Swedish and my husband is English. We have 3 children that have been brought up in Villa Phoebe but are now in university in London. The villa is very spacious and great for entertaining!
We now mainly live in our London home, but visit our beloved Vence, as often as possible.
Having lived in Vence for 12 years I will be very happy to assist you advice in the best Cote d’Azur has to offer, assist with telephone numbers or bookings.
We want you to have the best of holidays! Should you wish we can assist you in arranging for live in cook or summer girl?
Asa Hanna purchased this villa in 2001
When we were looking to buy a home in France it was important for us it was big enough for us and our family including room for visitors and general entertaining. No more then 15/20 minuets from Nice airport as my husband worked in London and arrived every weekend.
That villa had to be close to a town (walking) yet the feeling we where away from it all. Vence is superb, perfect, good schools , restaurants, markets, shops history and it is close to St Paul de Vence with my favourite restaurant in the world, Colomb d’Or!
The cottage, just perfect for our Au-pair, and also later for our guests that wanted some privacy and gave them opportunity to do their own thing without feeling they were under our feet.
Villa Phoebe has not disappointed us!
. The quiet location, all you hear are the birds tweeting and frogs on summer’s nights.
Yet the motorway, A8, is only a 15 minutes drive that takes you to Monte Carlo, for a bit of glamour, Italy, 20 minutes, Cannes the other way and Antibes and its beaches and fun nightlife.
We were one of three couples attending a wedding in a nearby town and stayed in Villa Phoebe for six days. It is a splendid place, beautifully designed, extremely comfortable, with gorgeous grounds, and we would recommend it without reservation. It is about 2 km outside of Vence down a country lane, making it a fairly long walk into town or a brief bike ride. Vence is very pleasant and enough off the beaten track that it is not overrun with tourists. It's about a 30 minute drive to Nice or Antibes, 15 minutes to St Paul de Vence, and there are buses (no trains) that will take you also. The area around the villa is wonderful for hiking and biking but if you want a beach you will have to travel a bit. The villa was exactly as advertised and we concur with the other rave reviews. The owner was very responsive and communicative and the resident caretakers were extremely helpful. We cooked dinner for ten a couple of times and the kitchen was well-equipped for this, though we had to ask how to work the oven. (Hint: it is electric and the rangetop is gas.) (The street number did not come up on our GPS, so just enter the street name and look for the number on the outside wall.) We all felt that we would try very hard to return.
This is the ideal spot to explore the Cote D'Azur. The house is set in the most delightful and tranquil of settings so if you want a break from the bustling towns nearby like Nice, Monte Carlo etc then stay by the pool.
Asa is very welcoming and is a font of knowledge recommending markets and hot spots nearby. She kindly made reservations at the famous Colombe D'Or and the less we'll known African Queen. Both were fabulous. Nothing like enjoying the sun with a glass of Rose!!
The house is set in a lovely garden and we enjoyed dining al fresco whether by the pool or under the shade of the large tree in the garden.
There were only 4 of us but this house lends itself to larger parties. I can imagine a large house party for a celebration. The open plan living lends itself to a number of people listening to music knowing that neighbours are far enough away to really let loose!
I'm hoping to take some friends down to enjoy the many walks, beaches and beachside restaurants. Can't wait to return to see what else the lovely Asa can recommend!! A bientot...
Our family of 5 and another family stayed at Mrs Hanna's wonderful villa in Vence and we simply had a fabulous time. The villa is light and airy and leads straight out onto the pool terrace where we spent most of the holiday. Lunches were usually taken under an enormous shady tree in the garden, it all felt very Homes and Gardens. Unlike other villas we had stayed in, this villa had large bedrooms and plenty of space so we didn't feel we were on top of each other. And at every time of the day there is sun pouring in through a different window. Bliss. Takes me straight back there just writing about it.
My sister and I rented villa Phoebe with our families in Vence, and we had a wonderful and relaxing holiday.
The villa is large and sunny with plenty of room for all of us. Something we worried about, being so many!
It was very clean and beautifully equipped with everything one could wish for in the kitchen. More like a home from home then rental villa we have experienced in the past. The linen of excellent quality very much appreciated with plenty of pillows, great! The independent cottage was a heaven sent for our parents as there was no stairs and they had their own privacy.
Vence is a lovely town and we spent many evenings in the square with the kids running around. Mrs Hanna booked us in to a romantic evening at the Colomb D’or, she was extremely helpful and gave us a huge list of attraction in the area, to be explored another time, as we spent most of our time in the shady garden and sitting around the pool or me hiding on my own quiet terrace outside my bedroom!.
There is a forest right on the doorstep on the villa, the children spent many fun days climbing trees and cycling around! We will absolutely love to go back to Villa Phoebe, well recommended!
Thanks for a great holiday - Vence and the surrounding area is gorgeous - whether you want to be on the beach or walking in the hills. Nearby villages have wonderful restaurants and beautiful markets. The house was easy to be in with lovely outside entertaining space and very quiet and peaceful. Being so close to Vence and the airport made it very easy for friends to come and go. All in all, a great success. Thank you!
We spent 7 lovely sunny relaxing days by around the pool in Villa Phoebe in the South of France. Just 25 mins away from the centre of Nice and its lovely beaches and little Ports. We treated ourselves to an outstanding lunch on the terrace of Colom d'Or and various other local bars and cafes. We cycled straight from the house through the forests which were right on the door step. The villa was large and spacious and airy, exactly as it had been potrayed in the photos, so no nasty surprises there ! We found ourselves in a completely completely peaceful oasis of palm trees and hibiscus and Oleander. We will definitely visit again, and next time we will take advantage of full maid service and cook that can be requested.
Altogether, a wonderful homely retreat. Highly recommended ! Thank you.
If relaxing by your pool sipping Rose is not enough you can explore the historic town of Vence and St- Paul de Vence is within walking distance, with its museums and food markets, specialist Provence shops. The villa is in a wonderful quiet location if you like cycling or hiking you could not be in a better
place. Right on your doorstep. However the beaches is just a 20 minuets drive, also the lovely city of Nice is not to be missed for shopping, walking along the famous Promenade des Angles, taking lunch in one of the lovely restaurants by the sea. Cote D’Azur has it all. Monte Carlo is just a 30 minuets drive away, motorway almost all the way. Also not to be missed it the Italian town of Ventimiglia, 45 minutes door to door. Lovely beaches and heavenly Italian food, great day out. Friday is the market day, it is huge, but make sure lo leave early in the morning to find easy parking. Shop, have lunch on the beach and have a swim in the sea, Great day out!
