“Amazing!”
Reviewed September 5, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Myself, husband and 11 month old daughter stayed her to a week in August. We were over the moon when we arrived. Such a lovely apartment with a beautiful view! The owners were excellent and provided us with a cot, highchair and baby bath. The apartment is fresh and clean and decorated simply but beautifully and has everything you need, the pool was great and our baby loved it! We dined alfresco most meals and in the evening sat on out balcony with a glass of wine looking at the amazing views of the whole of the cote d'azure! The town of Vence is only about a 1 0minute drive away, although the roads are windy you get used to them. There are markets most days and there are two supermarkets. This is such a great location as it is easy to travel to other lovely places for day trips. It only took us about 30 mins to get to Nice and about 40 mins to get to Antibes when we visited the beach one day. You should also visit St-Paul-du Vence as it is such a beautiful little town.
We really loved our stay here and will hopefully be back again, we have already recommended this lovely place to friends and family. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

“An elegant gite near Vence with stunning views, relaxing ambience yet within easy reach of the French Riviera.”

We booked Olives & Libellules on the strength of the photos online as we couldn't find any reviews. On arrival we were not disappointed as the decor and fittings are of a very high standard. We stayed in Caillette gite and found it an absolute pleasure to stay there for the week.

The Olives and Dragonflies name is very apt for the holiday rentals, as there are mature olive trees and the most beautifully coloured dragonflies around the mountainside. There is a stunning view from the front of the gite towards the coast and the weather was perfect during our stay in the last week of July 2015.

A rental car is necessary and we relied on the Sat Nav to find the property. We found the coastal cities like Nice, Monaco and Cannes all within easy reach. At the end of the week, we did a quick trip to the historic towns of St. Paul de Vence and the local town Vence, then spent the rest of the day by the wonderful pool. Our young kids (6 and 8), particularly enjoyed the pool and once again the quality of fixtures at the pool was of a high standard. We did not switch on the TV once during our stay and found the ambience to be very relaxing, particularly because of the comfortable furniture and quiet roads below.

I would certainly return here and found the cost to be excellent value for money. The hosts have their own website with more pictures for prospective visitors and those wishing to book direct ;-) but we were the first to book direct with TripAdvisor. Just along the road is an exclusive hotel with rooms costing more for one night than the Gite for a week!

I would suggest you shop in the Casino supermarket in Vence but don't make the mistake I did of buying the bulk of your provisions in the Petite Casino in Vence. The larger Casino is within the same block but recessed and accessed from a basement car park or a hidden doorway not obvious when driving around. Also avoid the basement car park in Vence as the down ramp is very narrow and I scraped our hire car on a wall. Carine will give assistance with alternative parking in town and speaks excellent English.
