Description

This lovely Provencal-style one bedroom apartment is located near to the 13th century "portail Levis" area of the historic town of Vence.

There are several other individually decorated apartments in this charming old villa so if you are going as a group, ask us for details and availability of the other apartments.

The villa is set in the middle of a large and quiet Mediterranean garden - approximately 3600 square metres on different levels with palm trees, cypresses, bougainvillea, mimosa and roses.

The heart of the house was built in the middle of the 19th century. All rooms are light and airy, some fitted out in typical Provencal style with French doors and shutters.

For the summertime there is a communal, fully equipped outside-kitchen with a barbeque. Deck chairs and sun umbrellas can also be used in the garden.

All apartments have on site parking (one car per apartment), central heating, and fully equipped kitchens.

Location description from owner

The French Riviera - 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

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.

“The Old Savonnerie 3 - a lovely and bright apt in Vence in a beautiful and private setting.”

Reviewed 26 Dec 2013

I enjoyed many things about my stay in The Old Savonnerie 3. I especially loved the uniqueness of the grounds. Lots of little garden areas and patios. The grounds felt open and inviting but private at the same time. Our apt was cozy and bright. Every morning I opened the windows and shutters to let in the beautiful southern air. The view from my bedroom looked down into the valley. Although, we didn't have time to use the outdoor lounge area beside the laundry room it looked gorgeous in the evenings with candles and a fireplace. There is also an area to play boules and when I arrived I had vowed I would have a throw or two but unfortunately with all the touring around we did by car in that area, I ran out of time. Easy short walk up to the centre of the village. A grocery store in the next street. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes etc and a gas stove etc. I was very impressed with how spotless and clean the apt was. The owners are friendly and hospitable. My only regret is that I came in October and not earlier as I would have loved spending more time lounging in the garden in the sun! Maybe next time!
