Where to Buy Property on the Riviera: Vence

Vence is often overshadowed by its more glamorous sister, St Paul-de-Vence. Whereas the latter is a pristine example of a tourist village perché, Vence is more down to earth and affordable. Vence is already popular with French holiday home buyers, including expat French buyers looking for a home base. They like that the town is more authentic and not a "show" village. They also like its proximity to Nice, the airport, and the coast, as well as the countryside feeling, without being isolated.
