This large villa, 'Le Falevinier', recently renovated with a new kitchen, new bathrooms and gym, offers great space, 3 different garden areas, a chlorine-free swimming pool with outdoor kitchen area and BBQ, olive trees and a beautifully maintained garden.
Self catering, this typical provencale house offers views of the mountains and the clear air of the 'arriere pays'. Its quiet surroundings, yet close to the Nice airport and the motorway, make it an ideal destination for a peaceful, comfortable and practical holiday on the French Riviera.
The lovely villages of St Paul de Vence, Vence and Tourettes, with fortifications and ancient stone houses; the Foundation Maeght and its art collection; all offers a taste of culture and history from this beautiful part of France.
You can find amazing restaurants around this villa from St Paul to Biot, Grasse (with its perfumes) and Mougins.
You are 10 minutes from the first beach if you want to take your children and enjoy the many activities available there
Le Falevinier is a fantastic place in a fantastic landscape. Your villa is lovely and decorated with taste & love. We all enjoyed life and had a great time. We : my mother (79), six of my nephews (15 – 25), my dog & me - everyone loved it. You can do so much in the surroundings and there is so much to see. So one week was much to short and I hope there will be a chance to come back to Le Falevinier.
The villa was as beautiful as I expected; well kept,
everything one can need was there.
I would rent it again if I had the need for a 6 bedrooms.
We stayed at the villa in June 2016 sharing it with friends and family.We all had a great time.There was plenty of space for everyone to feel relaxed. Super swimming pool, beautiful palm trees and well equipped pool area. Lots to explore in the area but you do need a car to get around and get up the hills!
Most especially, all of the people who support your stay at the villa are really very friendly and helpful.
We loved the early morning light creeping onto the terrace for breakfast and watching the sunsets sipping rose wine!
Thanks to everyone for making it a great holiday.
The location of Le Falevinier is ideal. This was our home base during our recent 2 week French Riviera vacation and I have nothing bad to say about this villa - it is beautiful and looks exactly like it is presented in the photos. Ultimately, we spent several days just lounging around this beautiful villa - swimming, playing ping pong, grilling out, drinking wine, and enjoying the smell of the flowers lingering in the air in the morning air as I sipped on my espresso on one of their many private decks. There is the best grocery store I've ever been in just 5 minutes drive away (always grab a fresh warm baguette), and the St Paul de Vence medieval village on your backdoor is worth several trips to fully enjoy (you can find some amazing burrata cheese to go with that baguette at a local cheese shop there). Do not miss the equally (I think better in some ways) intriguing old town in Vence only 10 minutes drive away (I recommend L'en Champs thé. Restauration - don't miss the tiramisu).
From this villa you can easily venture off to Antibes, Cannes, Haut de Cagnes, Nice, Villefranche, Monaco, Menton, Italy, and many other amazing locations - all less than an hour away (most are less than a 30 minute drive from the villa, depending on traffic). I plan on returning to this villa soon. There is a reason why this property is so well reviewed. Book early and enjoy the vacation of your dreams.
We had a wonderful week at this lovely and spacious home. Plenty of room for all 12 of us. The outside spaces are particularly appealing - we just needed more time to use them all. The home is well-built and decorated - very tidy and organized. The location, just a 15 minute walk from St. Paul, was perfect for our daily jaunts to the nearby towns. The housekeeper cooked for us several times, which was an enjoyable respite from the rush of heading out to dinner. And the terrace provides the perfect setting for an al fresco dinner. I heartily recommend this property, and all of the delights of the region.
Our family had a lovely stay at Le Falevinier for a week. The house was nicely decorated, well equipped including the kitchen. We think it would be good place for a shared party e.g. a couple of families, as there is plenty of space to spend time together or apart. The location was good, with good views of the hills opposite, quiet but near the hubbub of the Cote D ‘Azur. It’s a short walk (15-20 mins – uphill, steep in places) to centre of St Paul de Vence, which was a nice place to hang out with bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and lots of art. We caught a bus from St Paul to the train station and spent a day in Monaco. The train line also connects with Cannes and Nice and various beaches on the way. The E.Leclerc hypermarche is near, walkable if you want and even open for a few hours on Sunday. On our first day we arrived late on Saturday, but luckily took up the stress-free offer to have some food prepared for us for that evening. We can see why people come back here!
We have rented this property 3 times now, and every time we love it more. The location, the grounds, the layout of the house and its functionality, the setting and the closeness to the airport and St. Paul village, make it very attractive and desirable. The staff is friendly and nice and the owner very responsive and communicative. I would definitely recommend this property to friends (in fact, we brought several of our friends with us this last time, and they were equally delighted!) We walked up to St. Paul village and enjoyed a number of the good restaurants there, including the famous Colombe d'Or. The Fondacion Meght is within walking distance (for those who enjoy a hike) and always has some new exhibits in addition to the Miro and Giaccometti works. The supermarket Le Clerc is close as are a well supplied bakery and green grocer with a a great variety of fruits and vegetables, for those who like to cook. By the pool is a well equipped small outdoor kitchen and a barbecue, so one can spend time by the pool without running up to the house for snacks and refreshments. It is great, whether you come with adults or with children.
St Paul, one of the most typical village in the 'arriere pays nicois' is famous for its fortifications, painters and artists who came through to love this village and its games of 'boules'. The area allows yourselves to travel easily between Provence, Cannes, Cap d'Antibes, Nice and Monaco.
The contrast between the quiet location in St Paul due to the size of the properties in the area and the activities available on your doorstep is truly amazing.
