Villa des Arts is situated hillside in the Luberon just outside of Vence, allowing for views of both the foothills of the Alps and of the Mediterranean Sea/French Riviera.
Vence is known as “the City of Art” because of its attraction for artists over the decades; artists such as Matisse, Dante and D.H. Lawrence. There are many art galleries and stunning churches and chapels in this charming hilltop town, built on a medieval fortification and retaining many of its 16th century walls, gates and structures.
Villa des Arts’ private, alarmed pool is set in graceful gardens of olive trees and vines. Multiple terraces and patios overlook the views, and there is an outdoor dining area seating 12 guests. The property is fully alarmed.
The living room and the morning room on the ground floor both offer Mediterranean views. In the living room, an old stone fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere great for relaxing on a chilly afternoon. The home cinema is also located on the ground floor, and boasts seating for 15, state of the art audio, and a fixed screen/projector. Guests have access to an extensive DVD library as well. A double bedroom suite is also located on the ground floor.
The garden floor hosts the indoor dining area which opens to outdoor dining overlooking the Mediterranean views. The fully equipped rustic kitchen is adjacent to a breakfast room. There are also a study, a den bar with flat screen television, and a convenient guest powder room.
The first upper level hosts two en-suite bedrooms, and the fourth en-suite bedroom is reached via a spiral staircase leading to the second upper level. This attic bedroom also boasts a seating area.
Originally a boutique hotel, Villa des Arts has been carefully restored, retaining the hilltop village charm of the Luberon. Just outside of Vence and within 20 kilometers of Nice, this graceful Cote d’Azur villa is set in a perfect location for historical, artistic, and seaside visits, as well as for lounging at home in the famed French Riviera sun.
