"Another ten-star holiday - five for the cosy accommodation and five for the way you looked after us. This is our third visit in three years and we look forward to the next time. We've had a wonderful holiday with many happy memories that will last until we come back" Martyn and Cynthia, UK Sept 2010
" Thank you for a marvellous holiday. The chalet is utterly enchanting, beautifully decorated with everything you could ever need. As hosts you have perfected the art, you are both friendly and helpful but also discreet. This has been a perfect holiday. Claire and Kevin Aug 2010. U.K.
" Having stayed in Biot and Nice on previous trips to the south of France we can safely that this has been the best accommodation. A charming chalet with all you could ask for with a beautiful pool and BBQ area.Thank you so much for your hospitality." Mike and Viv Edinburgh.
"C'est avec tristesse que nous vous quittons car il n'est pas coutumier de rencontrer des hotes" Colette et Jean, France
This is our 3rd visit to Anne and Richard's lovely cottage and there will be a fourth next year. As ever Anne and Richard are charming, discreet and attentive hosts and the cottage is a delight ideally situated for the village and exploring the area. The cottage is perfectly presented and has everything needed.
Excellent cottage with great pool and handy for walking into Vence for eating out etc.Also great barbecue area with choice of gas or traditional etc for nights staying in.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Just come back from a wonderful stay. We will definitely be booking again next year. This property has everything we could wish for for a relaxing stay and Richard and Anne are charming hosts.

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.
