About Lars Svendsen, Le Haut des Espinets
We, Joan and Lars, are from Denmark. In 1996 we sold our company within the IT Industry and we left this business in 2001 with a clear target, to create something unique within the 'vacation industry' - far away from meeting rooms and business travelling. The idea was to create a very personal and luxurious place, smelling of good food and wines, in a nice climate and wonderful surroundings. We moved to St. Paul de Vence, where we we turned an exquisite Provencal villa into an Exclusive Guest House. Today we have expanded with a very luxurious Villa above Vence, placed in the very best position you can imagine. You can see this villa under FR4508 or on our own home page.
Lars Svendsen, Le Haut des Espinets purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Lars Svendsen, Le Haut des Espinets chose Vence
Vence is a living city in the 'backyard' of the Cote d'Azur, where you find everything you need. At this special location above the historic city of Vence, you have an extraordinary panoramic view, - difficult to match elsewhere. At the same time you are very close to the major cities Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo. In winter time you are 1½ hours from very good ski areas and you find +10 golf courses open all year around within ½ hour.
What makes this Villa unique
Best location you can get in the area! And here you find Italian design and Scandinavian comfort on a very high level. A few examples, - our bed linen has been through our own laundry, dried in the sun and mangled carefully, - we clean the villa two times per week - we offer various other services like cooking service, airport pick-up and car-rental.

Villa in Vence
Fantastic villa with all the amenities one can ask for. Located in a central location (Vence) allowing for day trips throughout the Cote d'Azur, while also providing a relaxing place to unwind at night in a pool or on the deck with incredible views. Lars was a great host meeting us on check in and walking us thru the house. Could not ask for a better experience.
Really really nice
Danish family of 7.
This must be the very best villa ever rented (and we have plenty experience).
The view is more than beautiful and you can’t stop watching - day and night. The Kitchen and living room opens up completely to the terrace giving a special feeling of space.
Fantastic grill area and covered terrace- for long nights with family and friends (and the view of Vence at night).
Kitchen (and the entire house) is super equipped with quality items. Indeed you have a feeling of luxury everywhere. By the way - the beds are very good - sweet dreams.
The pool is even bigger and better than Photos indicate. It’s perfect - and heated.
If you can walk a hill, then the house is only 15 min walk away from center of Vence.
Thank you to the ownersJoan and Lars, who are only a few km away. Thanks for your help and service - kind and world class! Also when a doctor was urgently needed.
Thanks from Mette and Peder and our 5 children.
Thank you so much for the very nice words, -
And thank you for coming, we hope to see you down here again some time in the future.

Everything you need for a perfect family holiday.
This was our third visit to the villa. There are nine of us. The villa accommodates that easily with lots of spaces so that we can all collect or separate as desired. The three kids 8-14 all had a great time too. Put simply we love the place.
Lars is a great host too. He’s there when you need him but never intrusive.

Best regards to all of you

Fantastic Villa in a great location
We had the most wonderful time at this Villa. Beautifully finished and furnished which felt just like a five star hotel. Everything you would ever need on a holiday was there and you are really well looked after. Stunning location with a superb view to sip our evening drinks with. The Pool was a lot bigger than expected and not at all salty. BBQ was a huge hit for doing dinner on and the kitchen was easy to use. All bedrooms were large and extremely comfortable. It is on top of a steep drive but even Grandma managed it a few times. Vence was worth the effort to walk down to though and a dip in the pool on the return meant all hills forgotten!! It's a beautiful area of France to visit with so much to do. We will definitely be returning one day and will hopefully visit this beautiful villa again. Highly recommend it to everyone!
Thank you so much for the nice words. We hope to welcome you soon again. - Joan & Lars
