As our second visit to Provence comes to its inevitable close, we reflect on the outstanding beauty, stunning scenery and friendliness of the whole area. Add to this the fabulous weather and the magnificent food and wines on offer and what else would you want in life. The answer is probably a great villa. Well we found one – its name is La Sittelle, which means “beautiful spot” or “beautiful area” and it truly lives up to its name.
Located just outside St Paul Du Vence it is quite simply stunning ( www.holiday-rentals.co.uk/p483065). On arrival we were amazed by its size and style, entering through electronically controlled security gates into the parking area. If first impressions were good, then entering the villa simply takes your breath away. A large hall way leads to a huge, bright lounge with high beamed ceiling, wide leather sofa’s, and big wide screen television with separate sound system, backed up with many videos and games for the kids (where required). For those who like a quiet read around the pool, the room also boasts a large library of books all superbly bound and offering a wide range of subjects (must have cost a small fortune for some of the leather bound books).
The lounge leads to a light and very modern, nicely furnished kitchen and dining area with a large American style fridge offering cold water and crushed or cubed ice on demand. The doors of the dining room open up completely along the length of two walls and lead to the outside eating area, large patio and the superb pool with comfortable beds alongside. The area also supports an excellent BBQ facility along with an outdoor wine / beer cooler/fridge, both of which were well used on many occasions over our holiday (mosquito’s can be a bit of a nuisance at times – use some protective spray/cream – it certainly helps). The beautiful gardens and large grassed area were well maintained and between the trees, offered fabulous views over the valley towards St Paul Du Vence. Bedrooms were very good, air conditioned and of the five available, three had on suite bathrooms, with the other two side by side sharing a very nice bathroom and shower facilities.
On our arrival we were met by a representative of the letting company, Pebbles. Her name was Vicky and she presented the property very well showing us round and making sure everything we needed was pointed out and the facilities were in working order. It was very clean and marvellously equipped for all of our holiday needs. Vicky was also extremely helpful when one of our party (me) hurt his shoulder and had to fly home to England. She printed off the boarding passes and met us to deliver the paperwork - superb service from a very good representative. As a matter of interest I saw the doc back in England and having got the all clear (ie; more pain killers) I rebooked immediately to come back out on the next flight managing to get the last two seats on the aircraft. Couldn’t miss the second week now could I. Too good to miss.
The villa was ideally placed in a quiet area overlooking the valley but perhaps a little too far out to walk into St Paul (bit disappointing but didn’t spoil the holiday). It did however form a superb base for daily visits to many places around the whole area with Cannes, Antibes and Monaco all within easy reach. Add to this the superb scenery and history associated with many of the beautiful towns in the area and we had the ideal base for a great holiday. Towns such as St Paul Du Vence, Eze, Cagnes, all offer a wonderful day out with winding streets, markets, historical churches and museums and (of course) many hostelries for fine foods and very good wines. We also took the opportunity to travel over the border into Italy which was a journey of about 40 minutes (worth doing if only to see the scenery on route).
Vence was a small pretty village with fine restaurants and bars – one to be tried was the Café de Clemenceau. I can heartily recommend the rabbit or lamb and roast potatoes. Superb food cooked in garlic, rosemary, basil and bay leaves.
Eze was a remarkable village and once you have braved the climb to the top of the castle you will find it very worthwhile. The views are simply stunning and the little cafes and bars on the way up are very accommodating and even more welcome on the way down, especially on such hot days.
St Paul is full of upmarket art shops offering excellent (but very, very expensive) paintings and sculptures. It also offers many good restaurants but for value try La Sierra – perched high on the ramparts of the town wall it offers great food, great service (with a smile) and breathtaking views over the countryside.
Nice itself is a wonderful place and offers the modern city merged with the old town – great night life and fantastic tram system to get your around. For the youngsters, try Waynes Bar – live music, crazy nights. For those that want something a little quieter, next door is a lovely piano bar offering a wide range of music from Edith Piaf to Louis Armstrong.
Cannes is Cannes…..beautiful, crowded and the marina packed with all sizes of boats – many breathtakingly beautiful but well out of our reach. It’s nice to look though. Well worth a visit.

A wonderful holiday, wonderful place, great company and fabulous weather
- I wonder why I want to go back????
