Provence passport“Don’t just visit Provence: live here, among the locals, within the very wall that embraces the region’s most picturesque mediaeval village – even if it’s only for a week or two.

How ever long you stay, we know it will not be long enough. How do we know? Because our guests are always returning. And besides, you will soon see for yourself! D’alliance Française is a magnificent six storey mediaeval gatehouse, built into the heart of the original “rempart” and wall of Vence ‘La Jolie”.

This is the perfect retreat to immerse the adventurous traveller in the authentic heart of Provence and the Côte d’Azur. Here you will feel part of history – part of the local culture, and very much at home. It is also the ideal hub from which to explore the ancient city itself, the numerous picturesque towns and charming villages of the Alpes-Maritimes, and the scenic splendour of the Riviera’s sparkling jewel, the Côte d’Azur.
