The thing is, when you holiday with us in Vence, you can so easily reach some of the best holiday spots in the South of France - or Europe for that matter.
Celebrities and the glitterati have been living and holidaying in Provence and the Côte d'Azur (French Riviera) region of the south of France since the 1920s, creating past and current A-list magnets of towns such as Nice, Cannes, Monaco and St Tropez.
The traveller with artistic, literary, historical and cultural interests rather than celebrity-watching will be more inclined to spent their holiday exploring towns such as Aix-en-Provence, Arles, Avignon and Marseille and regions such as the Luberon with its famous hill-top villages - Isle sur Sorgue, Gordes, Bonnieux, Menerbes, Roussillon.
Vence is the ideal hub from which to explore Provence: the ancient city itself, the numerous picturesque towns and charming villages of the Alpes-Maritimes, and the scenic splendour of the Riviera's sparkling jewel, the Côte d'Azur and hinterland.
When you holiday with us in Vence, so much of the culture, history, art, literature and glamour of the South of France, Provence and the French Riviera are within just an hour or so by car.
And many of the most appealing villages and towns are accessible by public transport.
That’s why we call ourselves Provence Passport.
If you find yourself in Nice, Vence is only half an hour or so away by car.
From your charming self-contained holiday apartment in “The Gatehouse in the walls of the ancient city you can explore the “City of the Arts” itself.
Then you’re off to the nearby towns and villages such as: Tourrettes-sur-Loup, Gourdon, Grasse, La Gaude and St Paul de Vence - we love St Paul de Vence, but it’s so touristy that’s it’s very much a place to visit but not to holiday,
And day trips will take in the French Riviera | Côte d'Azur
So a week or more with us in Vence, then back to the coast to continue your holiday through the South of France and on to Barcelona.
Doesn’t get any better.
