Located on the outskirts of the French Riviera, Vence provides respite from the glitz and glamour of the nearby neighbours harbouring tourists in search of the Mediterranean sun.
Set beneath a rocky enclave of mountainous countryside with a spectacular view of the Mediterranean sea, this creative haven is the holiday destination for two families looking to escape the crispy Scandinavian climes in order to recharge their batteries.
At first glance, the house reveals itself in all its glory with lush manicured lawns, stone edged swimming pool and dramatic shade trees that beckon guests to while away the hours beneath their broadened branches. The charms of this holiday house lie not only within its renovated interior, but also with the rustic charm of the original exterior.
