    This lovely Provencal-style one bedroom apartment is located near to the 13th century 'portail Levis' area of the historic town of Vence.

October not a good time to stay here. The lovely garden becomes home to masses of biting insects. Which means you can't sit out or even leave your windows open. Which means the apartment feels damp. Situation great, just outside the city(?) gate with secure easy parking. more

Management response:

Hi there, thanks so much for providing a review. I'm so sorry once again you suffered from the insects in the garden. As mentioned it was unusually wet early October this year and in conjunction with the continuing warm weather it made the insects quite prevalent. The owners inform me they're working on treating the garden for next year. I... more

The grounds felt open and inviting but private at the same time. Our apt was cozy and bright. Every morning I opened the windows and shutters to let in the beautiful southern air.... more

Just outside the wall, it was a short walk into Vence with its lovely restaurants. We... more
