STEVE AND CAROLE IN VENCE

Vence Postcards
Hotels, Houses & Buildings

Location: Houses & Buildings – 79 postcards.

There are hotels, houses and buildings, of course, all over Vence. From the earliest stone houses in old town to the modern villas that dot the hills above the Lubiane River to the large post-war apartment buildings that line the avenues leading into town, there is a wide range of styles and designs. Many of the houses and buildings you’ll see in these postcards no longer exist. They have been torn down and new ones now stand in their place. Which makes these images even more important. I find it fascinating to look through these old photos and wonder what it must have been like to live in Vence back then.

If you have any questions about any of the cards featured here, if you see any errors or if you would like more information, drop me an email at steve@steveandcaroleinvence.com.
