The house and surroundings are as shown on the website and all was perfectly functional and well designed. it is an easy to use and enjoy place. The terrace is great and we used it a lot. The swimming pool is of perfect size for children and safe. Vence is a very pleasant city close to all the the places we wanted to visit. The house is ideally located close to Vence but in a quiet neighborhood. To summarize, great location, palce and hosts. I defiinitely recommend! October 2018
Thank you so much We rented the villa with our family from the UK - we had the best time! All was fantastic! See you soon.Rhiannon and Christian, Monaco, South France Villas Clients, May.
We had a great time and loved the villa. Places of interest we particularly enjoyed - Tourettes-sur-Loup, St Paul de Vence, Juan-les-Pins, Antibes. Vence is wonderful - great restaurants - drive in and leave your car at the swimming pool car park overnight as parking is free. Villa fantastic, the view is incredible, very peaceful and relaxing. The Owners are very helpful - a fantastic holiday. Beware you will struggle to find parking in Juan-les-Pins and if you follow everybody else by parking on the street you will get ticketed! If going to the football in Monaco give yourself a good 3 hours to get there unless you are happy to pay €61 for half a match! It's such a nice place, the sea is warm, the water parks really fun and it is so sunny - I don't want to leave. I hope everyone after us has a nice holiday. Geraldine and party, August , From the Guest Book
Henry's Bar in Vence is a friendly bar. In Vence there are plenty of nice shops and the Old Town is lovely. The No. 400 or No. 94 bus take you into Nice and is very cheap. keep your eye on the times the shops open and close as we found the opening timings a little awkward. We have had a lovely time and the villa is lovely and it is a very quiet area. Barbara and Brian, June ,From the Guest Book
