La Bergerie is a charming private villa near St Paul de Vence with pool, set in spacious terraced grounds in a quiet residential area within 1.5 miles of shops and restaurants and 10 minutes' drive from the beach. Within a 5 minute walk the excellent local tennis facilities offer a choice of 9 courts, and you can walk to a good boulangerie in just ten minutes! This villa has a warm, inviting, homely ambience and enjoys lovely views that extend over the mainly flower-growing valley down to the coast between Cagnes Sur Mer and the Cap d'Antibes. A large outdoor dining terrace offers the most splendid of these views, with a glimpse of the sea glistening in the distance. The large swimming pool is accessed via stone steps leading to a lower terrace, offering equally far reaching views from the comfort of a sun lounger.
This charming private villa near Vence is a great base if you want to explore the surrounding medieval towns and villages of the Cote d'Azur. St Paul de Vence is a must - you can stroll through the narrow cobbled streets with their tempting artisan shops. For a more 'French' flavour why not enjoy a pastis, or lunch, in the square in nearby Vence which is famous for its art galleries and for the chapel painted by Matisse.
Just at the entrance to the town of Vence, take a little time to stroll down the narrow streets, enjoy a cup of coffee at a cafe, wander round the shops… If you are like me and admire the works of Matisse, then you will definitely want to stop off at the “Chapelle du Rosaire”. There's also a famous Jazz Festival, “Nuits du Sud”, which is spread over more than 3 weeks in July and August: some well known artists put in an appearance every year.
