Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom and kitchen with terrace and forest view

Within a stone's throw from the artists village St. Paul de Vence, embraced by the mountains and half an hour from Nice airport and the beach, you can enjoy the Gite de la Cigogne in the former farmhouse of Domaine La Cigogne.

A place for two to get away from everyday life. Walking in the woods that surround our house, enjoy delicacies which have the taste of the sun, a day at the sea, a trip to the mountains, strolling around old markets, enjoying the many art galleries and museums in Vence and St Paul. Vence is also known for it's cozy restaurants and boutiques in the small alleys of it's medieval town center. Around the Place du grand Jardin you can enjoy the summer music festival Nuits du Sud from your restaurant table . The famous museum of modern art Fondation Maeght in St. Paul is just a 4 minute drive or a half our walk from here. Fans of Chagall and Matisse will be in heaven at this museum. The former Villa of Matisse is in our street just 500 meters down road.

The gîte has 4 rooms and 2 terraces. At the lower level there is a fully equipped kitchen with electric stove, fridge, microwave, a dishwasher and a door opening to the lower terrace.

A short stairway up leads you to a cozy living room, it has a chaise longue, cozy armchair and paintings of local artist on the wall. The 2 sliding doors are opening to the higher terrace. There is a possibility to add an extra bed here.

On the same level you will find the bathroom with toilet, a sink and a shower (and fresh towels).

A little stairway leads you to the bedroom decorated with antique furniture and paintings. The bedroom can be set up with a double mattress or 2 single beds, as desired. The low ceiling of the stairway and low ceiling of the kitchen might be inconvenient for long people.

Outside there is the terrace with table with chairs, sitting area and access to the garden which is partly private and partly shared with Willem, Micheline and our two enthusiastic boys Alexander (9) and Max (8).

Additional beds for children available.

*From Saturday July 31st to Saturday August 26th the whole house is for rent: 3 bedrooms with each double beds, big and small kitchen, 2 living rooms, 2 bathrooms, garden with pool for refreshment - €1400 per week

About Gîte de la Cigogne

I'm a web developer and my wife is a singer (french chansons), together with our two sons we live in former farm house in the forest between Vence and St Paul. We travel frequently to the Netherlands, but for a real vacation we go to a country in Europe were we have not lived before. I like to fix and drive old cars although the later is more successful. Micheline is into horse riding lately and loves working in her little vegetable garden, which she proudly shows to anyone visiting the house. I was raised around the hotel restaurant of my parents, hospitality has always been a part of my life.

Gîte de la Cigogne purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Gîte de la Cigogne chose Vence

Our renovated old farmhouse breaths the atmosphere of the Provence, it is surrounded bij a large terrain with terraces (restanges) and fruit trees and a view on the surrounding forrest. We once holidayed in this old Mas and we were taken by its beauty and location. Our loved the spacious garden and the swimming pool. The unique light of the ‘midi’ and the mild sunny climate which attracted painters like Chagall, Picasso and Miro to Saint-Paul and Vence has kept us here for 4 years already.

What makes this cottage unique

First of all the fantastic sunny climate, in a beautiful setting in the forest. Being located at the foothills of the Alpes, close to the sea has it's advantages. You can do almost any kind of outdoor sport here, to name just a few: Walking (Rando), trail running, rock climbing and sailing in the Mediterranean sea. The forrest starts outside or garden, the mountains like Col de Vence (famous route for cyclists) are 10 minutes away and the beach is half an hour away. The the medieval hilltop villages of Saint Paul and Tourretes-sur-Loup are among France’s most beautiful villages. Both are just a 10 minute drive away. In summer we have the bigger village of Vence with festivals of music and art taking place around place du grand Jardin.
