Le Manoir de Vence is an imposing, stone-built Vence villa, perched 360 metres above sea level, with sweeping 180 degree views across the surrounding countryside as far as the Italian border and across the Bay of Cannes. This is a stunning villa in an equally stunning setting, just 1 mile from the centre of Vence with heated pool and tennis court.
This luxury villa has been beautifully restored and elegantly furnished, offering a fabulous place to holiday in an idyllic Riviera setting with inspiring sea views and rocky mountain backdrop. You have use of a private tennis court as well as your own boules pitch and heated salt-water pool with a well equipped pool house. Large terraces with shady pergolas are ideally positioned to take in the vista over a relaxing glass of wine or a leisurely meal. Once you've arrived, we suspect you will never want to leave!
The old walled town of Vence is full of interesting art galleries, craft shops and cafes surrounding a classic French square and interesting church and the Chateau du Domaine St Martin restaurant boasts 5 Michelin stars. Nearby St Paul de Vence has small cobbled streets with tempting artisan shops and is home to renowned restaurant La Colombe d' Or. The beaches at Villeneuve Loubet and Cagnes-sur-Mer are a short distance from this Vence villa rental, and there are lots of activities for children along the coast between Antibes and Biot, both places that the adults will enjoy visiting too.
I appreciate this villa for its excellent situation between the mountains and the sea, just above the town of Vence. In the old town of Vence you will love the little shops, the shaded squares, the fountains (particularly the “Fontaine du Peyra”) and the cafes. If you are a music lover, don’t miss the annual jazz festival, “Les Nuits du Sud”, and if you enjoy nature, every Thursday you can join an outing organized by a professional botanist to discover the local flora and fauna (information at the Tourist Office). At the same time, you are not far from the sea, with the nearest beaches being in Cagnes sur Mer and Villeneuve Loubet.

Thank you very much indeed for renting us your house for August. It is a beautiful property which you have obviously taken huge time and trouble in decorating and maintaining, and really is of a great standard throughout. It was definitely one of the best quality holiday houses we have rented, and we had a great time staying there.
