A fantastic, spacious ground-floor apartment with magnificent views of St Paul de Vence. The apartment is very well appointed with high quality furnishings and linens. The air-conditioning was very welcome given the high temperatures and wifi worked without a problem. The photos do not do justice to the size and the layout of the apartment.
The location is perfect for exploring all that the area has to offer. Within easy reach of the coast. Would strongly recommend the old town of Vence for great restaurants with tables outside.
Overall would very strongly recommend - a fabulous place to stay.
Les Arabanes is a perfect place to stay. Our 8 day stay at Residence Les Arabanes was superb from start to finish. Lesley & Mike made everything so easy, booking was clear, simple & straightforward. We were arriving late in the evening so Lesley very kindly asked if we would like them to buy some groceries for our arrival. When we arrived the groceries were waiting for us & the lights were on to make our arrival easier. Lesley & Mike thoughtfully left us a scrumptious bottle of rose, which we thoroughly enjoyed, Mary thanks.
The apartment is amazing, & is deceptively larger than the photographs show. There is a lovely large open plan hallway, living area & dinning area. Off the dinning area is a modern fully fitted kitchen. The master bedroom is huge and has a fantastic fully fitted modern bathroom . The second bedroom has twin beds and in the hallway there's another beautiful modern shower room and separate toilet. There is a third toilet off the hallway.
All of the rooms have double doors that lead out on to a terrace to fantastic views of St Paul de Vence, the views are stunning and if you can drag yourself away, it's take ten minutes to walk up to the village. It's a perfect place to explore the South of France or equally just to relax and escape.
Many thanks Lesley and Mike we’ll definitely be back.
This is a lovely spot for a holiday on the French Riviera. The apartment has a great view of the picturesque village of St Paul de Vence which is only a short walk away for restaurants, art galleries and the old fortifications. It's also not far by car to explore Antibes, Nice, and the local hills and villages. The apartment itself is very spacious, well-furnished with modern kitchen/bathrooms, and has space outside for al fresco dining in the almost inevitably good weather. Highly recommended!
this rental is much larger than it appears online. Everything was clean and in working order. The walk to Saint Paul de Vence was easy and I would prefer this location than staying in town simply for the beautiful view of the town we had from our terrace. The owners were polite and easy to work with. They were very thoughtful and had a nice welcome binder with all the information they thought we may need. The bathrooms were spacious and extremely well kept. The only comment I had is we figured out how to use the washer and we thought it was a washer and dryer all in one but either it was a little tricky to figure out or its just a washer. They had clothes racks so we hung our clothes to dry and it was no problem but we would have done our laundry the first night if we planned better to give ample time to dry. I would definitely stay at this location again.
If you ever think of visiting Provence and staying for more than a few days then I would highly recommend Les Arabanes in St Paul de Vence. The location was superb for visiting the various towns and villages and the apartment itself was beautiful and spacious. The photos on their website reflect exactly the apartment itself.
The view of St Paul de Vence from the 2 bedrooms, living and dining area was lovely and at night it was beautifully lit.
There were 4 of us and we couldn't have enjoyed the place more if we tried. A few nights we stayed in for dinner ,cooking in a kitchen well stocked with utensils, pots and pans.
The main bedroom was very spacious which was ensuite . The 2nd bedroom ,just as lovely was a little smaller with a bathroom (with shower) across the hall.
As I wasn't sure what time in the evening we would arrive, Lesley kindly offered to get us some necessities like bread, milk etc all of which were waiting for us when we arrived.
Directions given were excellent and we had no problems getting there; in fact from Nice Airport it took hardly anytime at all, around 20 mins.
My husband mentioned that he would have liked to be able to watch TV now and then as you can only watch movies on DVDs provided...... a big range !
St Paul de Vence is a lovely walled village and an easy walk from the apartment, about 10 mins walk.
There is a big supermarket about 5mins away by car, E Leclerce where you can buy everything you need as well as a smaller one a little further away ,the Casino Supermarket.
The apartment also has a washing machine as well as a dish washer and detergent provided for both.
Lesley and husband Mike provided excellent customer service, deposit was returned promptly on our last day. I neglected to count the returned deposit when Lesley gave it to me and later that day discovered €20 was missing. When I informed Lesley and Mike, they didn't hesitate in refunding the money to me which she mailed together with the USB my husband had left behind.
All in all, an excellent stay in a beautiful ,spacious apartment and wonderful location !
