Wonderful Villa, Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Audrey, we had a lovely time in your villa and found it very spacious, clean and comfortable. We greatly appreciated the WiFi, BBC News, the washing machine, pool, kitchen and exceptionally spacious master bedroom.

The outdoor space is wonderful and large and the views from both the front and the back are amazing. The old town of Vence which is a short 10 minute walk away is a real gem and a storehouse of excellent restaurants. Make sure that guests take the map and wander the side streets behind the central square leading to the cathedral in order to find them and the magic of Vence.

We visited St Paul de Vence and found it very scenic but a little too busy. In Vence we found what we were looking for, a beautiful and relaxing piece of historical Provence. Your villa and Vence are perfect for each other and provided a wonderful stay for us. Christina was great and we appreciated all her help, availability and information. Please say hello to her for us and give her our thanks.

Thank you for your quick responses from the start to the end but more importantly, thank you for providing us with your lovely villa and a memorable vacation. Best regards, Larry

Excellent villa in a very nice area

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just perfect. Nice, clean, well equipped and good in all aspects. Fantastic customer service when we arrived and also at departure. The location is perfect for exploring the area. Very close one can go for walks (randonées) in the mountains. St Jeannet, where there are many beautiful hikes, is only 5 kilometers away. We can defenitely recommend this villa to others. It is perfect if you are a group from 5 to 10 persons.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a very nice review. I let Cristina know! We are always happy to hear that families spent a good time in our villa. It is also what we liked when we first moved in Vence: its location between sea and mountains. The fact that in one day you can go hiking and appreciate beautiful sceneries around preserved nature, go swimming in the sea and have dinner in one of the hill top villages close by. Hope we can meet sometimes should you decide to come and visit the area again! All the best to you and family.

Unforgetable moments in Vence!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered our family and some friends together to celebrate my birthday party in Vence! Our friends lived in Vence center and 10 of us in Audrey's wonderful house. The youngest of our family is 4 weeks old. The separate studio offers to the baby and her parents own privacy. The house suits well for our group and the heated pool was the fresh start for mornings and enjoyable way to spend afternoons. 10 minutes walk to charming Vence and back to house offers daily activity and also possibility to enjoy marvellous lunch in old Vence. The chapel of Matisse is very near to the house and woth of visiting. Thank you Audrey for the wonderful autumn holiday for ever! Päivi and the family

Fantastic, relaxing holiday in charming villa!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 10 with an age range of 60+ down to 4 children aged 13, 8, 6, and 4. We wanted a villa with a pool and thought this was just right. And we were not disappointed!

We were met on arrival by Audrey who was so kind and helpful that we felt quite at home at once.

The villa was a real home from home, comfortable and well equipped with a layout which provided lots of areas for sitting in private if we wanted some peace and quiet. And the pool was so lovely - we had a job getting the children out! It was especially nice to take a dip when returning from a long, hot day out.

The villa is conveniently situated for getting out and about and although we had the car for shopping we used public transport which was cheap and reliable. The free bus to Vence was handy as it was so hot to walk up sometimes! We went to Nice a few times, Cannes, Monaco and St. Paul which was a new venue for us and was a charming place. Vence far exceeded our expectations and we enjoyed the markets and the vibrant atmosphere, especially in the evenings.

This was one of our nicest, most relaxing holidays. A lovely villa with a super pool, set in beautiful surroundings, and gorgeous weather. What more can one ask for? We would have no hesitation at all in recommending this villa!

Usually we are happy to return home at the end of a holiday but this time we all wanted to stay on much longer!

So Merci Audrey. We hope to return to your lovely villa one day!

Fantastic holiday & Superb Villa !!!

  • 5 of 5

I really don't know where to start, we had a fabulous time in Vence, the location was perfect, the villa was beautiful & Audrey was so helpful! We booked the villa following a recommendation from a friend & it was exactly as described. We were a group of friends, 6 adults & 2 children & it catered to all our needs. The villa is in a lovely town & a 10 minute walk to a selection of lovely restuants. It was also perfectly situated to enable us to visit lots of different places, we couldn't fit everything in so we will definitely be back! I would highly recomend this Villa and Audrey was always on hand to answer any questions we had, thank you so much! Angela x

Excellent Spacious Villa with beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this villa for a family holiday to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We invited our children and grandchild (only 2). We also invited our own friends for the second week. The villa is set in a beautiful location looking up to Vence in the front and to the Col de Vence at the rear. The villa is very spacious with many secluded areas where you can relax in peace and quiet. The swimming pool is an ideal size and approximately 1.6 metres at the deep end. You can walk up to Vence in approximately 10 minutes. On arrival we were greeted by Audrey who showed us around the villa. She was really helpful and friendly. We have stayed in Vence on numerous occasions over the last 12 years. Without a doubt this is the best villa we have stayed at. We would have no hesitation in coming back next year. The villa is a credit to Audrey and Ian.

Owner's Response: Thank you Peter for the nice review. I also have to say that I wish I had families like yours staying at my house more often. I am used to receiving text messages from renters during their stay, asking me things or reporting that something doesn't work but very few are texting me to thank me and telling me about a nice time they had at some point during their holidays. Your family is definitely part of the few who did and I have to say that it really made me happy that day. Thank you for your 'joie de vivre' as we call it here, we will be enchanted to have you back in our house sometimes.
