In amongst the squares, shops, and cafes of Vence on the French Riviera is a jewel of modern art and architecture. It was here that the painter Matisse designed and constructed his celebrated chapel, the Chapelle du Rosaire, with its beautiful, simple lines and motif stain-glass windows. Within walking distance of this celebrated work is Villa Malvan. A smart and well-equipped six-bedroom villa, with heated swimming pool and views to the sea, set in three hectares of terraced grounds and edged with woodland.
Interiors are light and airy and decorated with comfortable furnishings and neutral fabrics. A formal dining room opens out onto an outdoor covered terrace, from where views extend across the grounds and swimming pool to light woodland. Bedrooms are air-conditioned, have en suite bathrooms and queen-size double beds, all newly furnished with high-quality beds and linens. A master bedroom has its own private terrace and views to the sea on the horizon.
Open plan living areas have seating and a small library area, while a galley kitchen has marble work surfaces and is equipped with a professional oven.
An outdoor terrace is shaded with pine trees and edged with jasmine and agapanthus, while lawns are furnished with sun-loungers, and dotted with palm trees, providing shade. A gated swimming pool can be heated if required, beyond which lies a pétanque court and terraces of olive orchard.
The villa is 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Vence and 30 minutes from Nice Airport and the beaches of the coast. It is located on a lightly residential road on the outskirts of the town, with the occasional passing car audible from the upper terrace.
