une semaine à Vence

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine dans cette très belle maison. La maison est équipée de tout le confort et est à distance de marche de Vence. Tout ce qui est promis dans l'annonce est également présent dans la maison. Il faisait 20°C à midi et bien moins les nuits, mais grâce à la piscine chauffée, nous avons profité à volonté du plaisir d'eau!

Incredible house in Vence

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 weeks in this beautiful property. Owner and caretakers were amazing. Warm and attentive and friendly. We could walk to the midieval village a short walk away to the markets, restaurants and activities. Quite comfortable, especially for families, lots of room. Would certainly recommend it for a memorable visit to this beautiful part of France.

Lovely villa, nice and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday.

We were a group of 7 (5 adults and 2 children), villa had plenty of room for us all. Pool was particularly nice and our girls would have been quite happy spending the whole week just swimming!

Only 15 min car journey to St Paul De Vence, well worth of trip and 40 mins to Antibes. Vence itself is a 10 minute walk away, is a very steep walk so may not be achievable for everyone, however there is a bus stop just outside the Villa going into town. Vence has plenty of restaurants and a very nice old town.

Christina was very helpful on arrival, and thank you Audrey for all your help during the booking process and providing us the great villa for the week.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jason for your nice review. I am glad to read that both Vence and the villa still do their magic on guests! It is now 7 years we are renting the house, almost 12 years we own it and going back in time, remembering ours, friends and other families happy memories, I think it was all worth it. With a big thank you to Cristina, who looks after the house better than I would, Mark our neighbour, who treats our garden and the pool like if it was his and guests like you, whose enthusiasm and 'joie de vivre' give to the villa its very special holiday atmosphere. Hoping to see you again in Vence sometimes. All the best to you and family.

We were greeted by Cristana on our arrival. 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.

Really good holiday, fell in love with the area and will defiantly be coming again

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely, full of character and well equipped. Felt like a home rather than a holiday rental. We found the walk up to Vence a bit of a treck but it was worth it when there were so many restaurants and shops to choose from. We found Christina most helpful and it was a pleasure to meet Audrey's mum.

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
