Make a villa in Vence your home away from home

Vence holiday villas place guests in one of the more historic walled villages of southern France, with parts of its cathedral dating back to the 4th century. Lying slightly inland from Nice, holiday homes in Vence are very close to its beaches, yet still offer convenient access to the Alpine hinterland. Vence is well known as home to many famous artists and writers, including the English author of Lady Chatterley's Lover, D.H. Lawrence, who died here in 1930. The main attraction of Vence is the village square, however, which plays host to a variety of restaurants, cafés and bars.

Shops and galleries line its shaded alleys, and the medieval old town is an essential must-see. If these charms sound appealing, guests will be pleased to hear that holiday accommodation in Vence comprises mainly of villas, typically fully equipped for a modern self-catering holiday: modern kitchen appliances; dishwashers; laundry facilities; satellite television; DVD players; internet access – most amenities are covered. In addition, many accommodations in Vence also come with access to a pool, whether their own or part of a complex, to offset the slight inconvenience of the three-miles-distant beach.

Things to do

Outdoor pursuits: There are numerous walks in the hills and valleys around Vence, and of course the Alps offer an excursion for winter skiing. The proximity to the coast means the attendant watersports are within easy reach, so tourists can make the short trip every day if they wish, only coming home to a quiet dinner as the sun sets.

Beaches: The beaches of Nice (shingle) and the unmissable Cagnes-sur-Mer (more sand than shingle) are a short drive away, and accessible by public transport if desired. Vence is midway between Cannes and Monte Carlo, too, so those seafront options are also convenient. If Vence sounds a little too quiet, guests might wants to consider the glitz and glamour of Cannes holiday apartments.

Nightlife: Tiny Vence isn't much for the party scene, but for restaurants, it's difficult to top these Provencal gems. Prices can be prohibitive, however, and booking is often essential in summer. There's a two-starred Michelin establishment in Jacques Maximin Table d'Amis. For a boogie, Nice is the best bet.

Shopping: Quaint local galleries and shops punctuate the winding town centre boulevards. For self-catering guests, there's a local food market every morning but Monday, and a Provencal market, selling local produce such as olives, cheeses and meats on Tuesdays and Fridays. Further afield, Cannes and Monaco offer the opulent boutique shopping for which they're rightly famous.

Culture: The village cathedral has parts dating back to the 4th century and is open daily from 9am until 6pm. The Chateau de Villeneuve has a continuing revolution of art exhibits, usually modern in scope. Also, every July and August, there are a series of open-air music concerts on Friday and Saturday nights.

Weather in Vence

The slight altitude and inland aspect of Vence means temperatures in the summer usually top out at a comfortable 25°C or so, while the short, mild winters will see highs in the low-teens. Like the rest of the Cote d'Azur, the rain mainly falls in October and November, and even then, it's not enough to dampen spirits.

Travel to Vence

Nice Cote d'Azur Airport is only eight or so miles from Vence, making flying in the most convenient way of getting in. They're pretty much all direct flights, too, as Nice is a major travel hub. Travelling by car is possible, as the south of France is only a couple of days' drive from the south of England, and the journey itself is a pretty one. Trains can shuttle travellers from London in around nine hours.

Villa Carola var ett super mysigt ställe där jag med vänner spenderade 8 dagar, sammanlagt 11 vuxna och 2 barn. Gott om plats, jätte fina rum och riktigt fräscha badrum och toaletter! Utsikten mot den gamla staden st Paul de vence och havet var helt fantastisk. Poolen var mycket uppskattad av hela sällskapet och grill platsen användes flitigt! Riktigt kul att det fanns ett pingis bord i garage delen. Den gamla staden (st Paul de vence) var jätte mysig, fanns bra restauranger å mycket att se, kan rekommendera vin provning. Närheten av Nice, Cannes och Monaco gjorde det lätt att göra dags utflykter. Men gillar man att ha det lugnt och umgås med nära och kära är villa Carola ett perfekt ställe att koppla av på och bara vara. Vi kommer absolut försöka att komma tillbaka så snart vi kan.

Everything was just as we had expected having stayed at the villa last year. The villa is in a quiet secluded setting. The garden is very spacious , so you can always find a secluded space to relax. The pool is very relaxing for an early morning swim or to cool off during the day. The Villa keeps cool on a hot day and you never feel you are on top of each other. It is only a 10 minute walk into the central area of Vence. We loved the restaurants that had very good meals at a very reasonable price. One day we took the bus to Tourettes , where we had lunch. We then walked back to the villa along the old railway line. It is a lovely Villa and you always feel that Audrey wants to make sure that you enjoy your stay. Thank you Audrey. We will be back.

This beautiful villa was exactly as described on the website, spotless and very well maintained. After showing us around the villa and running through all the facilities Mr and Mrs Massa left us to start our holiday and what a place to holiday, the gardens were full of beautiful flowers the terrace and barbeque area were a delightful place to sit and chat and eat morning or evening. Bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms again spotless and clean with air conditioning the whole villa was just a joy to stay in. St Paul de Vence was a healthy walk away or 6 minutes by car with spectacular views and nice restaurants, Vence about 10 minutes away by car a nice place to get your provisions at the supermarket or the shops in the old village part of the town. If you like shopping the recently opened Polygone shopping centre in Cagnes Sur Mer is certainly worth a visit about 30 minutes away from the Villa. The area the Villa is located is peaceful and very quite we cannot recommend this property enough .Thank you Jean Claude and Therese for making our holiday a very special one. Thanks again best wishes David and Susan
