About Juliet Fallowfield
We live in London having just returned from 17 years living in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. We have 3 children aged 13-16 and for them, La Sonine is home. Having owned the house from the time they were infants, we are experts on what do to in the area and are very happy to advise. I send detailed information to help you plan a relaxing stay...ere is a taste: I have created a wonderful kitchen with 2 ovens, a Kooker, Ice Cream maker, Pasta maker, 2 fridges (and a spare one in the chalet) etc., so if you want to cook – the kitchen is designed for this. And … you are on holiday so here are a few short cuts that I have learned over the years. Picard: this is the Frozen food shop on the left on your way to Vence, after the beautiful roundabout but before LeClerk. Use it. They pick their vegetables at their best and flash freeze them retaining all the nutrients and flavour. They can take the time out of cooking as they do things like minced shallots, chopped fresh frozen herbs etc. They have wonderful soups – gazpacho and other European varieties that are delicious. If you are here with babies, they even have pureed veg and fruit. For families, they do family portions and if you are entertaining they have little ‘amuse bouche’ to whet the appetite. Fancy snails or duck – they do these pre-prepared so If you aren’t a chef or interested in trying these from scratch – buy them ready made. I always buy a few things for the freezer from here so that I have a back up when I just don’t feel like producing something from scratch. Make lunch easy: French pate and bread, Serrano ham, Quiche, some cheese and a fresh green salad or grilled asparagus with parmesan cheese, steamed artichokes a glass of gazpacho. Plan a few menus before you come and draw up the shopping list. This will mean you don’t need to think when you are jetlagged and in a foreign supermarket which is vast and not organized as you would expect. I attach my list for the basic shop...

Why Juliet Fallowfield chose Saint-Paul-de-Vence
There are few places left untouched on this planet, and even fewer which are located 15 minutes from an international airport. To walk through the alley ways and around the walls of St Paul de Vence is to step back in time. In more modern times, the town was adopted by many well-known artists and this has only added to the richness of the area and village itself. Tourettes sur Loup, Biot, Valbonne, Grasse, Moujins and Vence all offer different flavours of the region and make wonderful 1/2 day trips for lunch or breakfast. A favourite for us is to nip up to Tourettes for breakfast and the market on a Wednesday morning or to walk to Vence for lunch. With the beaches and the high-life of the Cote d'Azur in view and just 15 minutes drive it is easy to duck in and out of this scene and then retreat to the quiet and tranquility of La Sonine. There are not many houses in the area that offer flat land, or houses that are well laid out for 2 or more families. This is what we love about our home and we hope you will too.
