Even better than we imagined

The pictures on the website don't do Vence Rock justice! It was the perfect villa experience and surpassed all our expectations. Large and luxurious with beautiful stone & tilework throughout, unique decor (each bedroom feels like its own hotel room), yet at the same time warm, cozy and intimate and inviting. Well equipped, with everything you would need. Fabulous views from every room of the Mediterranean. There were 21 of us (14 adults & 7 kids) and the villa could even sleep a few more. Great to put all the kids on the lower level as the (2) alcove beds there are not totally private, and there is also a separate couch area with tv down there. We were there for the Nice Ironman and while we had wanted a villa in Nice, this location allowed us to explore the fabulous mountain towns in the area (Tourettes, Gourdon, St. Paul). A car here is a must and you must be a very confident driver as there are many hairpin turns to make the ride to the house. Nice was more like 35-40 mins away (once you deal with any traffic and parking, as with any city). The town of Vence (5 mins by car) is very authentic - great markets for shopping and good restaurants too. Very large supermarket in town too. You could walk down to town along a foot trail but be prepared to 'hike' back up. Easy parking in an outdoor lot in Vence, too (you could then take a bus from there to other places if you prefer not to drive). The pool did not need to be heated during our stay in June - it was cool, but refreshing. Lots of flotation devices and pool toys for the kids, and the ping pong table was great too. The owner was very responsive and helpful leading up to our stay as well as during, calling to check in with us while we were there. There is also a caretaker in the area who stopped by when necessary. I would wholeheartedly recommend this fabulous villa!
