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.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2002
Le Haut des Espinets was created back in 2002, based on the dream to provide a place to stay for those seeking calm surroundings in an exclusive environment. At that time we turned an exquisite Provencal villa into an Exclusive Guest House, renovated and equipped as a deluxe hotel. Today we have expanded with a very luxurious Villa above Vence, placed in the very best position you can imagine - you can read more about this villa on our home-page.
The quotation by Hans Christian Andersen: 'To travel is to live' still applies, especially when you can have a pleasant stay on your journey. - 'To stay at Le Haut des Espinets, is like visiting friends you were not aware you had' - from Le Haut des Espinets Guest Book.
The property is classic villa style with many sections of the house utilising lovely wooden beams originally from a church. The gardens are perfectly groomed, and the pool clean and inviting! I have stayed at this location over a period of 15 years annually and can only recommend the hospitality of the hosts, the wonderful cuisine which they personally prepare to a very high standard. The rooms are large and spacious, bathrooms also large and spotlessly clean. I can only recommend this lovely guesthouse in the highest terms.
Joan and Lars was so helpful and welcoming. Everything we needed was there in the House/room which was very beautiful. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend Joan and Lars resort. It was like a luxury hotel only more cozy. Very quiet and beautiful location.Thank you so much.
A luxury stay with homely atmosphere.
It was the first time we visited "Le Haut des Espinets". Expectations were turned up, and yet they were surpassed by reality. A holiday experience in top class.
"Le Haut des Espinets" is incredibly beautifully renovated, respecting the original style and with attention to details. We experienced a homely comfort in the living room with a bit of crackle in the fireplace. From the terrace with the covered bar and pool, we enjoyed a breath taking view over the surrounding countryside and from our room we had a nice view on the Mediterranean. A bright double room, nicely decorated and with direct access to the terrace.
But our experience was not limited to the property alone. The place was filled with human warmth and atmosphere, guaranteed by its hosts, Joan and Lars. They are extremely hospitable, servicing and with a good eye for visitors' well-being. And then they create food, making angels sing. A culinary "Tour de France" of dimensions.
Saint Paul de Vence is a "pearl", and the area in itself offers countless experiences, both in nature and city "shopping".
We highly recommend "Le Haut des Espinets" if you want to pamper yourselves.
