About Janine Hoedemaker
In 2004 we moved from Holland/Amsterdam to Vence with our 3 young children. We lived almost 10 years in this beautiful house we renovated along the way. Now we live in a house in the old centre of Vence, we renovated totally and we enjoy as it here as well. We always remember "Les Lucioles" as a lovely place. We keep a lot of good memories! You can be sure that the villa will give you all the comfort you need in a peaceful surrounding with great view on the valley of St. Paul de Vence and close to the centre of Vence. As we are Dutch we had to learn the French language which is not easy; we made a lot of French friends and our children are totally bi-langual; so this helps a lot. We are working in the real estate business. My husband Hoedie is a well known artist in Vence. He is working in his gallery/atelier in the centre of Vence. Check out his website www.hoede.eu
Janine Hoedemaker purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Janine Hoedemaker chose Vence
We love this area as it is vey easy to acces from the highway and lies in a quiet neigbourhood. Still you are very close to the interesting places like Nice, Cannes, Monaco and Italy. The international airport of Nice is only 20 min by car. In Winter this area offers plenty possibilities for skiing; Valberg, Auron, Isola 2000 are some exemples. A lot of activities are possible in sportive, cultural or natural ways; donnot hesitate to ask us. One day you go to the beach, and the other day you can visit Monaco and or Italy. But you come for silence, then you stay at home at the pool, you have every thing you need. The weather is almost always sunny and there are a lot of tourists in the big cities like Cannes, Grasse, St.Paul, Nice, menton, Ventimiglia, San Remo etc.
What makes this Villa unique
Panoramic view. Close to (15min by car) to big shoppingmall called Cap3000 in Nice and the recently opened open air shoppingmall Le Polygone, in Cagnes, with the Printemps and Primark. Quiet place.

The property more than lived up to expectations.
The house was fabulous ,the pool fantastic and the views from the upper terrace were breathtaking.There was a wonderful boulangerie just a few minutes walk away . Vence itself was a very short distance away and it was a splendid place with many excellent restaurants and street markets everyday .
We were a family of 7 adults and 3 small children and the house accommodated us very well.Our holiday was magical and we cant wait to return .
It was very nice having you this summer in our villa for 3 weeks.
You have taken very good care of the house, as if it was your own.
Thanks again for the booking and thanking you to have left the house in a perfect order,
looking forward seeing you again in 2017!
Lovely Villa with stunning views
We were a family party of 12 (age range 9 to 77 years) and stayed here for one week. The villa was spacious and homely with a stunning balcony off the sitting room with views across to St Paul de Vence. The swimming pool was a great hit with the children and adults alike, deep enough to dive into. When dining at home we ate outside on the veranda or balcony, each of which had their own kitchen. Both kitchens very well equipped. The drive had an automatic gate so felt very safe and secure. Quiet neighbourhood. The town of Vence is wonderfully traditional and unspoilt and is walking distance if you don't mind hills or is a short drive away. Lots of lovely shops and restaurants with a market in the town square on a Friday morning. We all had a wonderful time and highly recommend. Great base for exploring both the coast and mountains. 20 minute drive from Nice airport. Thank you Janine for your welcome and help during our stay.
Excellent séjour, merveilleuse maison !
Cela fait deux années que nous séjournons dans la maison de Janine ma famille et moi même. Nous avons de petits enfants et passons plusieurs semaines chaque été. La maison est très grande et très bien entretenue. Elle est accueillante, confortable, propre et gaie. Il y a plusieurs étages et deux cuisines. Les chambres sont réfrigérées. La terrasse a une vue spectaculaire et est extrêmement agréable. Le Jardin est grand et abrite un bac à sable pour le bonheur des petits ainsi que un hamac, une table de ping-pong et une très grande table sous une véranda bordée de fleurs. La piscine est clôturée ce qui est très rare et rend n’importe quel séjour avec des enfants beaucoup plus tranquille. Elle est grande et est nettoyée deux fois par semaine. Les enfants adorent la pataugeoire. La maison est parfaitement située. A 10 minutes de Vence et Saint Paul de Vence et à 5 minutes d'un grand Leclerc.
Enfin, les propriétaire et particulièrement Janine, sont à l’écoute de votre moindre besoin et vous fourni à l’arrivée un guide très détaillé de la maison. Elle est présente mais discrète.
Nous passons chaque été des vacances très agréable dans cette superbe villa que je recommande vivement !
