"Unique" doesn't really express the character and charm of Guy and Thierry's property in Vence. Fitting for a town with so much art history, the collection of furniture and art is unlike any you've seen. It ranges from from high fashion to pop art – all with a sense of wit and style. Contrasting the frenzy of color and imagery in some parts of the house, our room was quiet, spacious and elegant. It felt like an apartment, and we were immediately at home.
Thierry held court at breakfast, guiding guests to an array of adventures and restaurants. He was always ready with an insightful suggestion or a fresh cup of coffee.
The location couldn't be more perfect, one block off the main square, and just across the street from the art museum and the old-town entrance. The bus to St. Paul-de-Vence is about 4-5 blocks away. We found Vence to be a breath of fresh air after the touristy character of Grasse. One night (to the disgust of Thierry), we drove the 40 minutes to Monte Carlo – for a complete change of pace.
This was another gem from Mr. & Mrs. Smith, our new go-to resource for finding unique hotels.
