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.
