Vence is a charming medieval town with wonderful street markets, a varied selection of shops and cafes especially in the busy Place Clemenceau and many art galleries. This area has always been popular with artists such as Picasso and Matisse and today there are many museums paying homage to their work such as Matisse's chapel which the artist designed and decorated in the late 1940's. In Summer, the town hosts the sensational music festival 'Nuits du Sud'.
St Paul de Vence is home to the Meghet Modern Art Museum and offers plenty of shops and restaurants including the world famous 'Colombe d'Or'. A country market takes place every Wednesday morning on Place de Gaulle, whereas on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays there is a fruit, vegetables and flowers market at the entrance to the village.

Tourrettes-sur-loup, a picturesque perched medieval village often known as ‘Village des Violettes', located 6km from the property, is highly recommended. It is an authentic hidden treasure surrounded by rolling hills, from Puy-the-Tourrettes up until Col-de-Vence. Allow yourself to be transported back in time while strolling down its narrow streets, admiring the beautiful architecture and exploring the many local craft shops. Don't miss the 'Fetes des Violettes' in March as well as the festivals of St. Arnoux and St.Madeleine which are celebrated in July with a fireworks display and a ball (14th July). Moreover, the 'Festival de la Musique' takes place over July and August!
Golf courses, tennis courts, hiking (e.g trail GR51, the 'Balcony of the Cote d'Azur'), fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, water-skiing, horse-riding are all close at hand.
The attractive old town of Cagnes-sur-mer (10km) is also well worth a visit, especially because of Renoir's house, Les Collettes, which is now a museum with several of his paintings and works by his friends.
All the best of the Cote D'Azur and its stunning beaches is within easy reach, with Antibes, Cagnes-sur-mer, Cannes and Nice being all exciting day-trip options! There are even daily Ferrys to Saint Tropez and the Lerin islands departing from Cannes.
The famous perfume town of Grasse is also close by, so a visit to the Fragonard perfume museum and factory is essential as is the lovely Friday market in Valbonne (30mins).
A 40-minutes drive will take you to Monaco and in just one hour you will be in Italy. Cross the border and explore Ventimiglia's unique Friday market.
Villa Soleil is just perfect as it combines beautiful countryside and beaches, history and nature, art and gastronomy.
