The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
The Mediterranean beaches of Nice, Antibes and Cannes are close by. Tennis, golf and other sports facilities are nearby, as well as a local outdoor swimming pool from May - Sept. With its close proximity to the hilly countryside, this makes the apartment an ideal base for those who enjoy the outdoors, walking and cycling.
Within easy reach of Nice, its international airport and all that the Cote d’Azur has to offer.
Vence is an artist’s town and along with its equally well-known neighbouring town of Saint Paul de Vence, is situated amidst the beautiful hilly scenery west of Nice.
It has drawn artists both well known and amateur, and a special attraction is Matisse’s Chapel, a short walking distance from the old town. Another is the Chagall painting in the Cathedral.
There is a wide range of shops, restaurants and markets in the historical old part of the town, and the apartment is situated adjacent.

"A shame about the terrace"
The property is spacious with good facilities. The gardens are very extensive but need some care and attention and the garden furniture is a little run down. If you go there be sure to pack mosquito … More
Hello there, thanks so much for taking the time to review and once again we're so sorry you suffered with the mosquitoes. It's true they can be a pest in the summer and as you say, it's definitely a good idea to take some repellent. We're taking steps to improve the situation for next summer. Regarding the garden furniture, it's good quality with wood recliner chairs & cushions and wrought-iron/mosaic dining table & chairs, with pleasure we'll have a look at your comments. As you say, the property is spacious with good facilities and it's also in an excellent location just a short walk from the old town - we've had many happy clients stay and return over the years. Thanks again!
