Our holiday at beautiful holiday apartment in Vence
My husband and I spent a very enjoyable holiday at Les Chenes Verts in June. The apartment is very light and spacious - a true "home from home" , tastefully furnished and very well equipped.The views are very attractive and the large terrace with its pretty little garden is ideal for outdoor living.
Vence is an interesting town, particularly the old walled part with its restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Visit the chapel designed by Matisse up the hill at the back of the town, although not large it is very atmospheric.
If you are reasonably fit you do not need a car - we caught the number 94 bus on the dual carriageway opposite Nice airport which takes you to the small roundabout on Avenue General Leclerc a short distance south of Les Chenes Verts. The number 400 bus comes from the same bus stop at Nice airport but goes to the bus station in Vence new town which is a longer walk to the apartment
However a "must" when staying in Vence is to take the 400 bus from the bus station to St. Paul de Vence which is a quaint and pretty village full of art galleries. When at St. Paul walk to the Fondation Maeght outside the village, well worth a visit for art lovers.
There are 4 supermarkets in Vence. The nearest to the apartment is just off the town's main square near the entrance to the underground car park.
This is a holiday for people who like to soak up the ambience of a vibrant historic French town in a beautiful setting.
