We had such a pleasant and relaxing week staying with this hospitable family. The guest house attached to their house is very idyllic. Waking up and having breakfast outside on the terras surrounded by nature was a perfect start of the day.

Willem-Hein came by after we arrived and explained features of the apartment and things to do in the area. We had few other interactions with this very busy family. The apartment is cozy and comfortable, nicely furnished. The rooms are on three levels, but the stairs are narrow and a bit steep. Tall people need to heed the low ceiling on the stairs leading away from the kitchen. These quirks, though, add charm to the apartment. A lot of noise from the main house passes directly into the apartment, so those seeking peace and quiet may want to look elsewhere. But for the most part, the interesting design of the old house, its pretty country setting, and a location convenient to Vence and St. Paul de Vence outweigh the detractions.

Response from Willem-Hein:
Good to to read your feedback and advise on your stay with us. I'm sorry to hear not everything was like expected it to be. We did not realise so much noise came over to the Gite. Mostly the boys play outside in sunny Vence, but during the colder and rainy days they are in house, this is probably why this only surfaced now. We take your remarks seriously, we will take measures for noise isolation to prevent this from happening in te future. Still I'm happy to read that it did not overshadow the beauty of the location and your trips to Vence and St. Paul.

A wonderful, full home to stay in, right next to Willem-Hein and his family's place. A really great, quiet spot to have a moment to relax between visiting the surrounding area. Willem-Hein and Micheline are wonderful people to chat with, we took a great voice lesson with Micheline, and they even invited us over for some home made beverages they had concocted. Overall, a fabulous experience, one I would definitely recommend.

Les hôtes sont charmants et très accueillants. Le gîte est très bien placé si l'on veut rayonner alentour pour découvrir la région (Vence, les gorges du Loup, le Cap d'Antibes...) et agrémenter son séjour de sorties culturelles (fondation Maeght, musée Picasso...). Au calme dans les bois, avec une petite terrasse privative entourée de fleurs et de plantes où l'on peut prendre ses repas, et la possibilité de s'étendre sur des chaises longues sur le terrain. Un petit paradis où l'on se sent bien. Le gîte se situe dans une partie de la maison (ancienne et donc qui garde la fraîcheur la journée si l'on ferme les volets) avec des petites pièces simples pleines de charme, mais également fonctionnelles (placards, ustensiles, pas de four traditionnel mais un four à micro-ondes...). Idéal pour un couple. Micheline et Willem ont été au petit soin pour nous fournir ce dont nous avions besoin (fer à repasser, barbecue...). Nous sommes enchantés de notre séjour (nous l'avons même prolongé de 2 jours) et et recommandons vivement cet endroit.

I'm a web developer and Micheline a sings French chansons, together with our two sons (8 & 10) we live in a former farmhouse in the forest between Vence and St Paul. We travel frequently to the Netherlands, but for a real vacation we go to a country in Europe were we have not lived before. I like to fix and drive old cars although the latter is more successful. Micheline is into horse riding and loves working in her little vegetable garden, which she proudly shows to anyone visiting the house. I was raised around the hotel restaurant of my parents, hospitality has always been a part of my life.
