Nestled in the historic Roman city of Vence, a recently restored chateau, set away from the bustling crowds, epitomizes the enchantment of living in the French Riviera.
This six-bedroom, six-bathroom bastide, a quintessential country house in the South of France, exudes rustic architectural charm and affords breathtaking panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the rugged cliffs that surround it. The property encompasses mature gardens and features an expansive heated swimming pool at the base of its terraced garden.
“The light and airy interiors, along with the generous outdoor entertaining spaces, make it an exceptional summer residence, while the thoughtful renovations and comfortable interiors ensure its suitability for year-round use,” commented Jack Harris, a partner at Knight Frank.
Spanning approximately 5,000 square feet, the interior spaces comprise a spacious living room with a fireplace, a dining area, a kitchen, and a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Additionally, there is a separate 750-square-foot apartment, a substantial garage, and ample parking for several vehicles.
The property extends over nearly an acre, featuring numerous shaded areas. Outside, you’ll find over 3,000 square feet of terraces overlooking the lush gardens and the inviting pool.
Jack Harris expressed his admiration for the pool area, which is framed by local stonework and olive trees. He also noted the covered kitchen and dining space, ideal for escaping the midday sun.
Situated in the elevated terrains of the French Riviera, renowned for its mild and pleasant climate, Vence offers a tranquil atmosphere compared to its more prominent neighbors, such as Nice and Antibes. This chateau serves as a convenient base for exploring the city’s rich history and artistic treasures.
