About Vanessa Vogwill
I am a passionate Francophile who speaks French, Italian and Spanish. I have lived in France at various times in my life and can recommend the country to anyone who is interested in a truly magnificent experience of culture, wine and food and scenery.
I really enjoy interacting with people and would be delighted to assist you in any way I can - where to eat, drink or shop, where to visit and how to manoeuvre around France and french life. By the way,my neighbours are charming!
I am currently working in the UK in the medical profession but plan to retire here eventually. The house is sure to please anyone who stays in it: it is very comfortable, has a great atmosphere and is in a truly uplifting location. I guarantee you will love it as much as I do.

Why Vanessa Vogwill chose St-Paul-de-Vence
I have always loved France and this part of France has the additional benefit of great weather, fabulous sights and the gorgeous Mediterranean.
This location has the benefit of literally being in the middle of everything: so you are secluded and tranquil yet within very easy reach of the action when you want it. Perfect!

Guestbook comments from the owner
14 jours au paradis, une maison parfaitement équipée et très agréable à vivre avec une vue absolument fantastique. Cela valait bien la peine de faire les 1100 kms de voiture. Charlotte (10 ans) C'était génial. J'adore la piscine.
