Provence villa with infinity pool on the Côte d'Azur
Saint-Paul-de-Vence, near Nice, in the South of France
4 bedrooms with bathrooms, sleeps up to 8 people in comfort
La Villa Épicure
The villa is in the heights of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, 17 km from Nice and the airport on the Mediterranean coast. Cannes and Antibes, their fine palm lined boulevards and beaches, wonderful shops and restaurants, marinas and lively atmosphere, are within reasonable driving distance. Only a few minutes walk from the village of St Paul, the villa is south facing with open views towards the hills behind Cannes, and entirely private.
Saint-Paul-de-Vence, once the home of the painter Marc Chagall, sits on a hilltop. The village has a particular charm with narrow streets and old honey stone houses, perhaps best appreciated in May and June, or in September when it is sleepy and peaceful.
Perhaps because of its setting or the quality of the light there, it has always attracted painters. You can walk around the 16th century ramparts, visit one of several galleries or stop at the 13th century Gothic church to see the painting by Tintoretto. Just outside the village is the Maeght Foundation, an open air museum with artists studios and a splendid collection works by Bonnard and Braque, Giacometti, Kandinsky and Miró.
Villa Épicure has four large double rooms with private bathrooms and terraces. The salon is comfortable and cool and opens onto the pool terrace. There is Wi-Fi Internet connection, television and dvd.
The kitchen is full equipped with everything an enthusiastic cook would need, including a double fridge/freezer with ice maker, oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker.
There are tables and chairs and a barbecue by the infinity pool for outside eating, a pétanque pitch and private parking. The garden and pool are regularly maintained.
Within 10 minuites is a golf course, tennis courts and riding stables, walks into the hills and cycling routes. The beaches are little more than half an hour away.
The old town of Vence, just beyond St Paul, is famous for growing flowers. The ancient town walls form a circular boulevard around the centre of Vence. The Place Peyra has great charm and the cathedral has some amusing choir stalls. More unusual is the Chapelle du Rosaire to the north of the town, designed and decorated by Matisse.
Apart from the sweep of handsome, ornate buildings along the Promenade des Anglais, Nice also has an attractive, pink painted town, clustered around the port. In the oldest part of the town is a wonderful flower and vegetable market, which fills the air with mouthwatering, aromatic smells. The main event of the year is the two week Mardi Gras Carnival in February, when the whole town joins in with parades and celebrations.
