Where we are

Our location can be easily described with a single word – unique!

On a mountain ridge and bordering the Cagne-Canyon, you will enjoy the fantastic panoramic view from the snow covered mountains of the Mediterranean alps, the Cagne-Canyon, the Mediterranean sea, the Esterel-mountain-range and last but not least the medieval town of Vence. On clear days your view can reach as far as Corsica. You can enjoy the Cote d’Azur and escape its hustle and bustle.
Vence is a lively town all through the year, a living French small town with narrow alleys and the typical tree-lined town square, many small individual shops and restaurants with local food. It is only 8 minutes to St. Paul de Vence, 20 minutes to Nice and 30 minutes to Grasse.
