The space
Situated in the heart of the medieval walled village of Saint Paul de Vence but benefitting from glorious views of both the sea to the south and the mountains to the north, the 100 sq metre apartment has just been beautifully restored while keeping all of its amazing original features. In Prévert’s old house, you’ll be staying in a piece of French history, with its ancient wooden beams, huge open fireplace for cozy winter nights, large vaulted-ceiling bathroom accessed through a mysterious tunnel, two large en-suite double bedrooms with fresh French linen sheets on the superking beds (that can separated into two large single beds if needed), fully equipped kitchen and private use of the jasmine-covered sun-trap terrace outside.

Guest access
Guest have access to the entire property.

Other things to note
CORONAVIRUS CLEANING POLICY - Since March 2020 we have implemented a rigorous cleaning policy with our professional cleaner (a wonderful and meticulous ex 5* hotel maid) to help prevent the spread of COVID19, using a professional steam cleaner to clean not only floors but all regularly touched fixtures, fittings and items. All linen and towels are washed at between 60-90 degrees C in a professional grade washing machine with steam function, and the entire property is well ventilated between bookings.

Saint-Paul-de-Vence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Situated in the heart of the medieval walled village of Saint Paul de Vence, known as the Jewel of the Riviera and once home to some of the most world-renowned names in early 20th Century art, literature and film... Picasso, Matisse, Jacques Prévert (this property, La Miette, is his old house) and Yves Montand to name but a few. Built in the 12th Century, the well-kept village is steeped with history and oozes medieval Provençal charm in every narrow cobbled street that you venture down.
