Many thanks Iwona & Bent for your welcome & hospitality over the last two months. I can hardly believe the time has passed so quickly. The apartment was wonderful; the tranquillity & the house & garden so relaxing; the sun & light & warmth have been energising and spiritually uplifting. Many thanks.

I feel sad to leave but do so with many great memories, and hope to return


Best wishes





Chere Iwona and Cher Bent


I am looking out the window of our apartment a few hours before we fly home. What I see will remain with me forever. Here are hills so close, I imagine I could jump out and land on them. Here is a fence, newly build to hold a swimming pool and two little dogs yipping with excitement.

Vous avez été très gentils et je ne vous oublieras pas. S’il vous plais, venez à notre petite ville, Skaneateles, New York, et nous vous montrerons autour le region. Vous avez notre e-mail.


Merci Beacoup. Au Revoir.

Dear Iwona and Bent,


Tusind Tak from mee too. The one week with the comfort of your apartment and your warmth and generosity was special and one I will always remember. I love it here and so enjoyed the incredible views, our walks to St. Paul or around Vence, and the wonderfully mild climate.

As Pete mentioned, we would love to show you around our little village and the Finger Lakes. Perhaps we’ll see you in the US sometime!


Merci beacoup! Au revoir! Best wishes to Alexander too

Dear Iwona & Bent


Thank you for another happy and peaceful week at Maison de l’Ara & for your hospitality – a lovely meal on arrival was a most welcome start to the holiday. We hope you continue to have success with your venture. Good luck to you all!

Thank you for your warm welcome, we feel at home from the first moment.

We enjoyed Vence and all the area, and your apartment was very comfortable.

We will recommend it to our friends, and you are kindly invited to visit us in Israel.

Thank you for a wonderful stay – a very relaxing time! We enjoyed the apartment and its peace and quiet. We also liked Vence very much… just sad we have to leave!


Best wishes, Robert + Emma Orchardson, from London



We have discovered yet another magnificent corner of France! We found the apartment suited our needs perfectly with superb comfort. We’re so pleased we found you.

What a wonderful part of the world!! – A lovely apartment to stay in. Did a wonderful walk to St. Paul & all sorts of other things. Thank you for excellent hospitality & for the good Internet connection!

Dear Iwona & Bent

Thank you very much for a wonderful opportunity to stay in your house and enjoy the area.

Vence, Saint Paul, Monaco, Gourdon and many others are excellent places to visit.

We had a very relaxing week in here, Alps (Isola 2000) were great too. We would like to come again and perhaps do some skiing and more visiting at the Riviera.


All the best to you

PS: Internet worked perfectly after you went to Austria!



Dear Iwona & Bent


Thank you for your warm welcome & help in many ways. The accommodation is excellent & we enjoyed our stay.

We didn’t travel far, but had a relaxing week, enjoying the food and atmosphere here in the countryside. Vence is good for shopping/relaxing in the historic surroundings. The Maegh Foundation at Saint Paul de Vence was both interesting & amusing – especially the outdoor sculptures. The Le Peyra restaurant we also enjoyed – the food was very good. We hope to return quite soon & wish you every success with your venture.


Christine & Brian Wright, Burz st. Edmunds, Suffolk, U.K.



Thank you for such a relaxing holiday. You made us feel so welcome & at home. We found the house and facilities wonderful. We recommend the markets in the old town centre on a Tuesday & St. Paul de Vence is a must – really beautiful.

Thank you again – we hope to return

Dear Iwona & Bent


Thank you for a very relaxing week in Vence. Apart from the end of the week, we had very good weather and enjoyed visiting many interesting places along the French Riviera. We particularly enjoyed St. Paul and Mougins. Hope to visit again.


Au revoir


Brigid and Chris, Sutton Coldfield, UK



Dear Iwona & Bent

Thank you so much for your warm welcome and a wonderful sunny two weeks at Maison de l’Ara. We had a lovely holiday – as relaxing as could be with a 7 month old baby – away from the grey skies of Copenhagen. We recommend le P’tit Provence restaurant in the cite historique as well as le Torquet at the Place de grand Jardin to your other guests. Thank you also for supplying a baby crib, even though Laughlin ended up sleeping on the master bed, and we on the sofa! We also enjoyed our al fresco dinners in your charming garden and would like to come again
