The Petit Maison is a perfect retreat for a quiet and peaceful relaxing holiday to the Cote D'Azur. It is situated a short car journey from St Paul De Vence town and Vence town. St Paul is just breath taking.
Prior to arriving, Martine was very responsive to our booking enquiry and subsequent questions. Martine even sent us a lovely message on the morning we were due to arrive, saying that the Petit Maison was all ready, enclosing some lovely pictures of the grounds and pool.
Martine is the perfect host. On arrival, she was most welcoming, along with her large white dog, Jade, who is just so kind and gentle too. Martine showed us round her property, the grounds, and the Petit Maison.
The Petit Maison is situated in the bottom of Martine's garden, and feels completely private and self contained. It has everything you would need. We had full use of Martine's pool, which is just set on the terrace above the Petit Maison. It was cleaned daily. On many days, there were only us around the pool and occasionally joined by Martine.
Martine is a wonderful artist and she runs a small art studio from her home. There are many examples of Martine's wonderful art pieces around the Petit Maison and the grounds. During our stay, Martine and her students allowed us to see some of their Art Classes in action. Truly inspirational.
What really made our holiday very special was an invitation from Martine to join her and her friends for an evening in St Paul De Vence. The evening was a special celebration for the locals, which included alfresco dining in the heart of St Paul town, beautifully dressed tables, entertainment by some fire dancing ladies and a dress code of white attire only. It was magical. We were invited into Martine's circle of friends and made to feel so very welcome.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday, with memories we will treasure. We would highly recommend Martine's Petit Maison to others and plan to book again on our return trip to the Cote D'Azur.
