If you are looking for a place to stay while exploring the French Riviera, look no further. We spent 5 days exploring the various towns and villages in the area - Nice, Antibes, Cannes, Eze and Monaco were some of our favourites and very easy to get to with the house being so centrally located. To us, the house was truly a luxury experience - gorgeous setting, modern and spacious interior, and plenty of amenities, utensils, etc. The house has everything you may need and the views down to the sea are fantastic. It is spotless, and more beautiful then the photos. Although the pool looked incredibly inviting, with the chilly November weather we weren't quite brave enough...although I'm sure many would. In short - what a wonderful relaxing home. We highly recommend the house and the fantastic Hamilton family who rent it, they were more than accommodating, provided a lot of useful information and just in general are a pleasure to deal with! We loved every minute of it! Given the opportunity, we'd return in a heartbeat. Thank you!

Its been stylishly and tastefully modernised with the decor reflecting both the buildings ancient character and Vence's art culture. We stay for a week as a family of 4 with two young children, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The views from the small terrace of the surrounding hills and countryside are simply stunning, and a great place to watch the sunset! The old town in Vence is really charming and being traffic free is a great place to wander through the cobbled alleyways with kids and enjoy a coffee and browse the many local galleries. Vence is also a great base to easily explore the coastline from Nice to Cannes. Although we spent a lot of time at the local beach at Cagnes-sur-Mer which was great for kids with calm seas, and we found to be nicer and quieter than the more expense private beaches in Antibes. Would highly recommend the family run restaurant Auberge Des Segneurs.
