Vence Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage in gated garden just minutes walk from Vence old city.

This beautiful cottage, situated within the grounds of a villa overlooking its garden and pool is 5 minutes walk to the town of Vence and 10 minutes walk to the historic old city with its cafes, restaurants, markets and culture.

It is 25 minutes drive from Nice airport and ideally situated for easy access to the whole cote d'azur from Monaco to St Tropez and back to mountains and ski resorts and within easy reach of beaches, golf, walking paths etc.

It is detached, self-contained and air-conditioned and has a downstairs living area, with sky TV and DVD, a well equipped kitchen including washing machine, oven, microwave etc., and a shower room with toilet, all newly decorated and finished to a high standard.Upstairs is a spacious mezzanine bedroom with a double bed.

Towels, beach towels, bed linen are all included, also most other things you might need eg tennis racquets, golf clubs, beach gear etc - just ask.

The cottage has private parking right outside the door. It is south facing, with French doors opening onto a mature garden with olive trees, traditional and gas barbeques, and pergola dining area. The pool is salt water and measures 8 metres by 4 metres, and is shared only occasionally by the owners.

In winter it is well heated and a good centre for skiing (the nearest resort 40 mins), hiking, Nice Carnival etc., and 5 mins walk to the regular bus services to Nice, which cost just 1.50 Euro.

Strictly no smoking inside, and unfortunately we cannot accept children or pets.

We've had a wonderful holiday with many happy memories that will last until we come back" Martyn and Cynthia, UK Sept 2010

Richard & Anne are the perfect hosts who are always on hand for advice but very respectful of your privacy.We would strongly recommend this cottage & area overall for the south of France.

Thankyou to Richard and Anne for a great stay!

A very relaxing stay in Vence

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Anne and Richard for a very relaxing stay in the town of Vence. The chalet was equipped with everything you could wish for. The aircon in the bedroom was a real bonus and made the hot summer nights comfortable for sleeping. A short walk into town for shops and restaurants makes the car redundant. All in all a wonderful relaxing break and we hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for taking the time to write this lovely review. Appreciate that you Carl and Debra just wanted to relax together by the pool however for other guests we would recommend hiring a car as there is so much more to see in the surrounding area which would be a pity to miss while here in Vence. Date of arrival 25th July !!

Fantastic location for two people

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Anne were impeccable hosts; there when we needed them but respecting our privacy throughout. From the first day when we met with them for aperitifs to the last when we said our farewells it was though we had found new friends, and indeed we have.

For future guests, visits to Valbonne, La Turbie, Mougins and Greolieres (In the mountains over the Col de Vence) with associated lunches are highly recommended, as is this impeccably maintained and wonderfully presented holiday cottage. We look forward to our next visit.

Relaxing retreat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cosy but airy and clean and well maintained and opens onto a very pretty garden with a lovely pool, with sunbeds and beach towels provided. It is very well equipped with everything you might need and the aircon keeps you cool at night. The owners, Richard and Anne, are extremely friendly and helpful, and we had a lovely reception from them on arrival and felt instantly at home there. As per the description, it really is a short walk from the old town of Vence, which is beautiful, and there are so many places to visit within an easy drive. Nice, Antibes, Menton and Italy are all reachable by car, there is no shortage of things to do in this area. We had a fantastic week at this cottage in Vence, I only wish we had spent more time relaxing by the pool but we enjoyed our days out exploring this wonderful part of Provence. Definitely recommended.

Car: recommended


Half an hour by car will get you to all the pebble beaches of Cagnes sur Mer and Villeneuve Loubet, which have beach restaurants, sailing, jet skis, water skiing etc. A little further to the sandy beaches at Antibes and Juan les Pins.


We are about 20 mins by car and 35 mins by bus from Nice (Cote d'azur) airport. While bus services are good we would advise hiring a car to make the most of the area around us.


The cottage is just a 5 min walk from shops, supermarket and main bus stop in Vence and 10 minute walk from the old city of Vence with its little shops, cafes and restaurants. Also well worth a visit and very close are the villages of St Paul and Tourettes sur Loup, both about 10 mins by car.

We are situated very centrally on the Cote d'Azur, with Cannes, Grasse, Nice and Monaco all within easy driving distance.
