The Space

Enjoy the life in a small Provencal village and experiment a middle age life cadenced by the sound of the bell, forget your car !

Located in the old town, close to the cathedral, the one room apartment is on the third floor of a very old building (built between the roman period and the 19th century) “maison de village”.

The one room flat has a small kitchen and a small bathroom with a shower and toilet. The main room is large and overlooking the historical « place godeau ».

Ask for a qotation, sometimes it's cheaper !

Vence is an attractive old town surrounded by a ring of hills with splendid views down to the Mediterranean.
Vence has always attracted artists, writers and poets. Dufy, Matisse, Chagall, Dubuffet, Carzou, Arman, Anthony Mars, D.H. Lawrence, and W. Gombrowicz have all been part of the Vence scene.

Vence is well situated to visit the cote d’Azur without being in the crowd.

The Neighborhood

The Place where is located the flat was formerly the Place du Vieux Cimetière (old cemetery), removed in 1780.
The column of grey Esterel granite, in the middle of the square, is one of the two columns (which previously stood together) presented by the city of Marseille in 230 in honour of the god Mars Vintium.

On the north side of the square is a house with an authentic 13th-century twin window.

Built in the 4th century on the site of a Roman temple, the cathedral took its present form in the 11th or 12th century. Outside, on the left, is the St.Lambert tower, dating from the 12th century.

From the Place Godeau there is an excellent view of the Romanesque chevet and the bell-tower, with 13th-century crenellations.

Inside the Cathedral there is a mosaic by Marc Chagall ‘Moses saved from the waters’, and a unique ensemble of 17th-century statues in polychrome wood, previously exhibited in the Calvary chapels.

Getting around

Vence has 3 free car park close to the flat.
A bus is running every hour from Nice to Vence and return.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We had a great stay in Isabelle Galys apartment in Vence. Everything was nice and clean, lovely view to the church tower and mountains. Great communication regarding keys and parking and so on.

    One minus is there is no real door to the bathroom.

  • Stunning view in a lovely village. The room was kept very clean. We woke up one morning to find music playing in the square which was great! We will definitely stay again.

  • The flat is right in the centre of Vence, which we found to be an enchanting town. You're in the thick of it, especially with the church bell (if you're a light sleeper, just be aware that you may need earplugs). There are restaurants aplenty, cafes around every corner, and we enjoyed getting our banettes from a different boulangerie every day. As for the flat itself, the kitchen is so well equipped, Gordon Ramsay could feel at home here. The sofa-bed, contrary to our expectations, was very comfortable. The flat is very clean and well looked after. It's also a great base for exploring other towns in the region, if you have a car. (One top tip for parking your car is to park in Parking Des Meillieres - it's a free car park, which is just beyond the swimming pool, near the Gendarmerie. We found there were always places available there when other car parks were solid with vehicles.) Isabelle is a great host, and organised our stay very well. We look forward to staying with her again!

  • This was probably the best holiday my wife and I have ever had. Everything was perfect. The house has everything you need to live on Vence and maybe the best view in town. And the welcome we got from Isabelle's friend made us really feel welcomed and at home. I would not hesitate to come here at all, and I would come back at any time. Thank you Isabelle!

  • Merci beaucoup pour ce très bel appartement.
    Vence est un endroit merveilleux et l'appartement très lumineux et refait à neuf était un lieu parfait pour des vacances paisible.
    Il est difficile de décrire la vue panoramique mais elle est tout simplement "formidable" !

  • Isabelle's place was perfect for us. Very (website hidden)'s amazing location in the old town means you're right at the heart of everything, with all the restaurants and shops within a minute of your doorstep. The town is so picturesque and the view from the room was so cool - I could have sat and looked out the window all day long. Vence and Provence is such a beautiful area. I recommend a visit!

    Isabelle provided everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and we slept very well on the sofa bed. Which is surprisingly much larger than you first imagine.

    Only thing i'd say that might bother some is that the shower was a little bit small for me but maybe i'm just a bit on the large side so it was actually fine.

    Oh and be aware that the cathedral is right outside your window. The church bells chime 5 minutes before every hour and on the hour. I wasn't actually at the apartment all the time, so don't recall if they do half past the hour too but to be honest we got used to it very quickly and it didn't bother us at all.

    So yeah overall we loved it. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Isabelle is the best, very responsive tyo requests (I really needed a fan, and she brought in a top of the line one!)... her friend locally who passes over the keys is also very friendly and accomodating. The apt is adorable, with great views and SO xcentrallylocated. I plan already to come back next year! :-) // C'est un apartement adorable, et bien situé au coeur de Vence, avec une vue idéale sur les toits et le col de Vence.
