Description from owner
You wake up on a beautiful morning in Provence. You walk over to the French doors which open on to your bedroom terrace and you step outside. There, across the valley in front of you, bathed in the morning sunlight are the medieval ramparts, the church tower and the mellow stone houses of St. Paul de Vence – one of the most beautiful “Village Perche” in the South of France. Another sun blessed Provence day stretches ahead with the anticipation of a stroll into the village to have croissants and coffee or perhaps to bring some croissants and fresh baked baguettes back to enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the terrace or in your private courtyard garden at Apartment Arabane.This luxury two bedroom apartment is situated in the gated, private domaine of “Les Arabanes” – ideally located on the edge of the village with superb views of St. Paul de Vence. There are just 7 apartments in a Provencal style two-storey building with its own grounds and private

Location description from owner
The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
Apartment Arabane in the village of St. Paul de Vence offers an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area and indeed the whole of the Cote d'Azur.
Within a short drive you have Vence – the nearest large town with its historic heart surrounded by larger shops, restaurants and other amenities including the famous Matisse Chapel. Just a little further into the hills you come to another beautiful “Village Perche” – Tourrettes sur Loup. Known as the Cite des Violettes because the area around Tourrettes use to supply violets for the perfume industry in Grasse. There are still some local violet growers and a violet museum in the village. In addition Tourrettes sur Loup has many artisans making a variety of beautiful products in wood, jewellery, sculpture and of course art in its many ateliers along the medieval Grande Rue. Tourrettes also has a thriving café and restaurant scene including a Michelin starred restaurant.
Just beyond Tourrettes is the famous Gorges du Loup with its waterfalls and spectacular scenery leading up to one of the areas highest medieval villages – Gourdon – perched on a rocky outcrop with outstanding views right down to the sea.
Exploring the Coast
The nearest beach to St. Paul de Vence is 15 minutes away at Cagnes sur Mer. Here you can enjoy miles of recently renovated promenade, sample one of the many beachside restaurants or visit Renoir's House and Museum.
Conveniently located just 20 minutes from Nice airport and the coast St. Paul de Vence enjoys an international reputation as the village of art and artists. It is a beautifully preserved medieval village surrounded on all sides by ancient ramparts offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and the coast. Its narrow streets, nearly all pedestrianized and filled with art galleries and other beautiful shops and restaurants, wind their way around the village to the historic church at the top.
Just outside the main medieval gateway, near the ramparts you will find the Colombe d'Or restaurant and hotel – one of the most famous restaurants on the Cote d'Azur with its long association with famous artists and more recently, film stars and the rich and famous. Nearby is its sister establishment the Café de la Place with its Parisian style bar and large covered terrace. Here you can sit with a drink or enjoy a lunch and watch the local “boules” players on the boule terrain next to the terrace.
The art galleries of St. Paul bring visitors from all over the world particularly the priceless contemporary art of the Fondation Maeght.

- Very Good
Four of us had a wonderful 5 night stay in this apartment. The view towards St Paul de Vence is stunning! The apartment has everything required for a comfortable and relaxing stay-beds are very comfortable with quality bedding and furnishings are tasteful. I have no hesitation in recommending the apartment and would definitely book again myself.

“A wonderful holiday in a wonderful appartment”
'Les Arabanes' was a wonderful apartment, which certainly met our high expectations. The rooms were well equipped and very comfortable, and the views from the bedrooms looking across at St Paul de Vence were incredibly beautiful. The apartment ticked all the boxes, providing everything you could possibly want, from the very pretty garden to the elegantly presented bathrooms. The weather was really hot for the two weeks we stayed so the air conditioning was very welcome in the bedrooms. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends or anyone hoping to stay in this area as it is perfect in so many ways.
