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

About the neighbourhood
Vence is an artist’s town and along with its equally well-known neighbouring town of Saint Paul de Vence, is situated amidst the beautiful hilly scenery west of Nice. It has drawn artists both well known and amateur, and a special attraction is Matisse’s Chapel, a short walking distance from the old town. Another is the Chagall painting in the Cathedral. There is a wide range of shops, restaurants and markets in the historical old part of the town, and the apartment is situated adjacent.
How to get there
By Car – Vence lies in the hills to the west of Nice and can be easily accessed from the N7 By Air – Nice-Cote d'Azur is the nearest international airport, approximately 15 kilometres away. There is a regular bus service from the airport to Vence town centre. By Train – Eurostar runs from London to Paris city centres and then the high speed TGV service runs from Paris to Nice. Full directions will be sent to you once you have made a booking.
