Overview

Pool Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Located in historic Vence, one of the Côte d'Azur’s most enchanting towns, Mas du Ciel Bleu is an incredible home with mesmerising views, just a 20-minute drive from the beaches of the French Riviera. 

In an elevated position looking over the Malvan valley as far as the sea, this period villa has been completely renovated to create a laid back yet beautiful home. Designed with an artistic flair, admire modern design alongside classic elegance as each room has been styled with grace and charm. Six air-conditioned bedrooms offer respite in serene surroundings across the main villa and annexe whilst the living area is filled with light flooding in from the French doors that open up to the wonderful terrace with glorious views.

Step out of the perfectly equipped kitchen to a delightful al-fresco dining terrace looking out towards the gardens and forests beyond, a magical place for long evening meals enjoying fine food from the barbecue and drinking local wine with loved ones as the stars fill the clear skies above you.

The terraced gardens are vast, allowing ample space to find a pretty spot for sunbathing or relax amongst the olive trees taking in the scenery around you. Wander down the steps and you will feel like you’re dipping into a surrealist work of art as you cool down in the uniquely designed swimming pool.

Gaze out towards the pine forests as you sip an apéro in the al-fresco lounge before wandering into Vence to dine out in one of the excellent restaurants or soaking up the ambience along the characterful lanes of this historic town. Ensure you visit during the day as well to experience the various markets, galleries and charming shops as well as Henri Matisse’s amazing Chapelle du Rosarie.

Characterful St Paul de Vence is just a short drive away, another enchanting place to explore or drive further afield to idyllic villages and towns such as Mougins, Biot, Valbonne and Grasse. Discover the wonderful market in the old-town of Cagnes-sur-Mer or head to the coast for beaches, watersports, boat-trips and fun-filled days on the French Riviera with Nice, Antibes and Cannes so near.

Close to some of the Côte d'Azur’s most treasured highlights, Mas du Ciel Bleu offers the sophistication of a fine holiday home in an absolutely superb and authentic setting.

Mas du Ciel Bleu enjoys an enviable location in a residential area on the edge of the beautiful town of Vence, just set back from the incredible Côte d'Azur.

You can wander into the heart of Vence in about fifteen minutes, a famous yet authentic town most well-known for its artistic scene with pretty galleries across the old town and the wondrous Chapelle du Rosarie, created by Henri Matisse. Walk around the medieval lanes of the historic town, enjoy dining in some wonderful restaurants or simply relax with a glass of rosé in a picturesque café. There’s a daily fruit, vegetable and flower market in Place du Grand Jardin as well as a weekly antiques market and the main market on a Friday morning selling all sorts of wonderful local produce.

Just a short drive away is the equally charming St Paul de Vence (5km) with its Wednesday morning Farmer’s market and fantastic modern art museum, the Fondation Maeght. Again, the town is filled with great places to eat, galleries and stunning views all around due to its wonderful location. There are some lovely walking paths between the two villages and beyond if you’re a keen hiker.

Heading towards the coast, stop off in the old-town in Cagnes-sur-Mer (10km) which has a great market as well as the former house of Renoir, Les Collettes, now a museum. The town's beach has a nice promenade and a good choice of watersports and beachfront restaurants or head towards Villeneuve-Loubet Plage (14km) with its great facilities.

Other beaches can be found in and around Antibes (20km), Cannes (32km) and heading east past Nice towards Beaulieu-sur-Mer (32km) and the incredibly beautiful Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat (32km) peninsular. There are also many boat trips from various ports along the French Riviera, a good way to visit Monaco, St-Tropez or the picturesque island of Sainte-Marguerite.

As well as visiting the wonderful cities of Nice (23km) and Cannes (32km), there are so many idyllic French villages to explore inland from nearby Tourrettes-sur-Loup (6km) with its artisan shops and market to Grasse (23km) surrounded by olive groves and lavender fields. Opio, Valbonne, Mougins and Biot, all within a 40-minute drive, are also archetypal hilltop villages so typical of this area. Drive through rolling hills, dense pine forests and olive groves to explore the hinterland of the Côte d'Azur.

Golf-lovers can choose between many golf courses within a short drive, including the famous Royal Mougins Golf Resort (35km) and there are many great cycling trails if you take your bike or hire one locally. Horse-riding is also popular across this region and for a real change of scene, drive inland to the world-famous Verdon Gorge, two hours away, where you can hire kayaks or canoes surrounded by spectacular scenery.

The Provençal way of life is one that’s deeply tempting for anyone who’s been feeling the need to get away from it all. This is a place where the Mediterranean weather turns fields of corn and lavender into picture-perfect backdrops, where you can sip your locally bought wine and enjoy the landscapes before heading out and tackling them head-on with a range of great activities for families, groups of friends and adventurous foodies. Better yet, our range of villas in Provence and chateaux and holiday homes in the Côte d’Azur make the perfect base to explore this enchanting region!

Reviews

  • We'll be back!!

    on 15/08/2022

    We've had a super week at Mas Du Ciel Bleu and would love to return sometime!...daily trips to the bakery in Vence stopping for coffees at Henry's Bar...dinner at Alain Llorca comes highly recommended. We'll be back!!

  • Amazing and delightful!

    on 03/07/2022

    Amazing villa, home, countryside,... the cicada chorus, and swimming pool all delighted us. Morning strolls to Vence for coffee and shopping, visits to the hill towns perched high up in the rocky mountains, perfumeries, and day trips to Nice, Antibes and the beaches. Thank you for providing this very special place to many travellers. We hope to return.

  • Wonderful place

    on 11/06/2022

    THIS HOUSE! - such a wonderful place. We just love to stay here, the surrounding is so unique. This time we stayed here with our kids and grand kids... it has been fantastic. We hope to be back again next year...

  • Time of our lives

    on 21/09/2021

    We had the 'time of our lives' - family, friends and laughter. We'll be back!

  • Exceptional

    on 12/07/2020

    Quite simply the villa was exceptional. The views were fantastic, the house was very clean, exceptionally well equipped and very well furnished. Very spacious and very comfy...great location as it felt very secluded and with great views over the tree tops to the coast but also just a 10 minute walk to the old town and shops, restaurants, bars etc.

  • Best time

    on 24/09/2019

    We have had the best time in your house - hope to see you again soon!

  • Truly special

    on 18/07/2018

    We often rent houses throughout the world, and this house in Vence was special. Firstly, it’s in a prime location. It’s a nice walk to the village of Vence, so you’re central without being in the center. For us we want any rental to be clean and minimal without bring stark and uncomfortable. This house strikes the right tone. Soft around the edges, with all brand new amenities, without a dominance in an individual's personal style. And space, plenty of it. A wonderful layout, with places for private and quiet reading/working, while others are in the house carrying on. A stunning pool. We’ll return to Vence for the house alone.

  • Felt like home should feel

    on 29/06/2018

    I will always remember Mas Du Ciel Bleu as a beautiful, luxurious and delightful abode without ever being ostentatious or gaudy in any way. Felt like home should feel. Will definitely return.
