Vence Information

From the painters that have flocked to Saint-Paul: Matisse, Soutine, Chagall, Renoir, Signac, Modigliani, Dufy, to the writers, including Gide, Giono, Cocteau and Prévert, and the film directors and movie stars of nearby Cannes. From the perfume centre of Grasse,to the ramparts of old St Paul itself, the area is rich in culture and history. Whether it is skiing in the alps, or sailing on the crystal clear waters of the Cote de Azur, Arcadie is situated near it all. There is horse riding, tennis, golf, windsurfing, cycling, and many more sports, all with 15 mins drive. There is hiking in the mountains & valleys that surround Nice and St Paul, and for the less energetic a leisurely stroll around the weekly markets of Vence and Nice. There is plenty of shopping from quaint antique shops to shopping centres with everything under one roof, and, of course, the haut couture of Cannes and Nice. The area has something for everyone and all details are provided in a welcoming book at the villa
