Truly "Home Away"

Truly "Home Away"
  • 5 out of 5
We chose this property based on all of the positive reviews we saw on Home Away. The villa is as delightful as everyone has said! It is very spacious and comfortable and perfect for a larger group. The villa's layout provides opportunities for privacy as well as comfortable areas to gather together. Very quickly, we found this charming villa feeling like home after returning from a day's outing!

Audrey welcomed us to the villa, making sure we knew how everything worked and provided us with lots of information on local restaurants, attractions, etc. She provided additional information in a handy booklet that gives suggestions on everything from shopping to hair stylists, all of which was very helpful and welcoming. There are even business cards from her favorite businesses.

The villa was immaculate, indoors and outdoors. We loved using the beautiful, heated pool in October and eating dinner outdoors. The weather was so lovely, we stayed outside as much as possible.

The location is very convenient for easy drives to Antibes, Nice, and Grasse. Vence itself is charming, with a delightful daily farmers' market. We especially loved neighboring St. Paul of Vence, with it's numerous artist studios and shops. If you go, make sure to try the wonderful crepes sold at the walk up Creperie.

Perhaps our favorite thing of all was getting up each morning and walking into town for fresh croissants and baguettes from one of the local boulangeries.

Parfait!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une très belle semaine en famille dans cette charmante demeure. La piscine chauffée nous a permis de prolonger la douceur de l'été. La maison est très agréable, très propre et dispose de toutes les commodités. La vue sur le vieux Vence est agréable et le vieux village se trouve à une dizaine de minutes à pied. Vence dispose de très bons petits restaurants. Par ailleurs, les propriétaires sont très gentils, efficaces et discrets.

GORGEOUS VILLA IN AN IMPECCABLE LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Upon arrival, our group of 9 friends was greeted with smiling faces and tons of hospitality. The house was clean and spacious, allowing room for relaxation and peace. The heated pool and easily-functioning electronic pool cover kept the temperature prime for taking a dip at any hour of the day/night. The house was complete with everything needed to have a top-notch luxury vacation, including a stunning view of the mountainside.

The house is located a quick 10-minute walk away from the centre of Vence, a city that gives a true feeling of tranquility as you walk the cobblestone streets and get a taste of the true Vençois cuisine. The other small cities around Vence, including Saint Paul de Vence en Saint Jeannet offer different aspects of culture and art that you would not want to miss!

If you are into the beauties of nature, you are in the right place. The area around the house offers must-see hikes, where you can swim under waterfalls or hike to the top of the Beau de Saint Jeannet and will have a 180 degree view of the entire Cote d'Azur. After this hike, we couldn't stop ourselves and made our way out to the Gorges du Verdon for a day so that we could get a glimpse of the Grand Canyon of Europe.

During the last days of our week, we had no trouble doing some city hopping to learn more about the culture of the Cote d'Azur. If you don't have a car, you can easily take the train to Cannes and Nice which offers a beautiful ride along the shore-front.

This house was perfect to come back to at the end of each day and I would highly recommend it to traveling families or friends. You will also not find hosts that are as kind and helpful as Audrey and her husband, Ian.

The perfect spot for joint family holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We were 2 families - 9 in total - meeting up for a weeks break in France.
The villa was perfect -
spacious with plenty of separate zones so we could all relax -
clean and well maintained - well appointed & full of all the extras we needed. We cooked, BBQed and lounged by the pool. The pool was a big hit with the kids as well as parents.

Audrey was the perfect host and went out of her way to make our holiday wonderful. The location was also just right - only a 10min walk into the old town with many, many restaurants, cafes and shops. On Audrey's recommendation we went to dinner at Les Agapes in the old town - Superb!

We did several days trips - one to Grasse but the big bonus was the side trip we took on the way to Gourdon through the amazing valley to the old town with the spectacular view of the Cote d'Azur.
We also visited Les Arcs in the Var region to try some wine.

It was almost a joy to return to the house at the end of the day - We could easily have stayed another week!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Michelle for such a nice review. It is honestly very important for us to know our guests spent a good time in our villa. Although we are trying to think about everything renters may need during their stay in Vence, we are never sure to be on the right track. Your comments are not only rewarding for us but also very useful for future guests you may want to rent our house. Many thanks again Michelle and we will make sure to pass by your place should we decide to visit your beautiful area.

Very nice villa close to Vence

  • 5 out of 5
We were five people staying at this beautiful villa close to the centre of Vence for a week. Everything we needed was there, the house was clean, the pool was heated and the owner, Audrey, was very nice and welcoming. We strongly recommend this house for rental, and will probably be back.

Wonderful villa, magical town

  • 5 out of 5
Our party of 9 have just returned from a stay at Villa Chant d'Oiseaux, and we have had a wonderful time. The ages of our party ranged from 19 to 80, and the villa offered something for everyone. The immaculately maintained swimming pool was popular with all - the surrounding pool area was perfect for relaxing, with plenty of furniture. The youngsters enjoyed using the TV and DVD facilities on the evenings we were not out, and the barbeque was heavily used for long family meals outside in the evenings. The villa is excellently maintained with a very well equipped kitchen. It is very spacious, with plenty of places to find a quiet corner to yourself. Thanks so much Audrey, for making our stay in your villa so enjoyable and relaxing. The magical town of Vence is only a short walk up the hill from the villa, and shopping there, especially for food, was a real pleasure. It's also worth making the short journey from the villa to the lovely chapel decorated by Matisse. In conculsion, a lovely villa in a great part of France. Can't wait to go back, especially after returning to grey English skies.
