Vans is a really nice, quiet and “middle-age” town. I liked its narrow streets and stone houses. We choose Villa Canto Grihet and it was a great choice! We lived in room under the roof with marvelous wooden bathroom! We liked everything!  Especially Claude France! She is amazing person! She made this place! We had breakfast in cozy garden…... More

We arrived after travelling for 30 hours to a home away from home. Good size bedroom, lounge area, kitchen and balcony you can share with other guests.

This is a wonderful, private villa with a short walk to a charming city with great restaurants. Recommend following Claude's map, giving her a call (impeccable English) since she will direct you to parking, which is a bit tight. We stayed in the Bleu Provence suite--what a luxury with views to the pool and her gorgeous garden. The rooms are... More

We stayed in this area many years ago traveling with our sons but this was the first time just my husband and I wanted to base our two-week vacation in Vence. Canto Grihet was perfect! Just a short walk into town with all the restaurants, shops, banks, markets, etc., needed for convenience and delight (the Matisse chapel a 10-15 minute... More

Villa Canto Grihet.....The villa itself is beautiful, like something out of an old hollywood film. The garden is sub tropical and full of delights, the pool is borded by two tall palm trees and looks so inviting! The rooms are individual and tastefully decorated and all have something special about them - and I'm sure a story too. It's very... More

We stayed here in late May for 5 nights and really had a great time in the detached cottage cedre. Great to have the washing machine, full kitchen and separate living area and bedroom. Claude was a wonderful host/owner and she takes great pride in her b&b. Breakfasts are good and the rooms are clean and well appointed. Close to... More

The Villa is situated about 10 minutes walk from the old town of Vence (very nice, with many good restaurants). It has a big exciting garden with palm trees, figs, kiwi, rosemary, thyme, roses and lots of other plants surrounding a pool. Our children enjoyed the garden very much, playing hide-and-seek, swimming in the pool and searching for the croaking... More

This area in the South of France is quite simply, paradise. A short walk from the villa brings you into the charming old town section of Vence with great restaurants and charming medieval streets and walls. The owner, Claude is charming as well, she serves breakfast outside (weather permitting) which includes her home-made jams. There is a pool. A little... More
