Fabulous place to stay, relax and enjoy all Villefranche-sur-mer has to offer. We spent five nights here after a hiking trip. We were planning to base ourselves in Nice - instead accepting a friend's advice that Villefranche is a better base. What excellent advice! Had a three person room at the top of the stairs on level 2 - room...

This hotel is located in the quieter port of Villefranche sur Mer. Just a 10-minute walk from the train and other port (where the restaurants are located). I had a triple room which was very large with a nice balcony facing the water. There is a nice patio area for breakfast or just relaxing. The woman who runs the hotel...

We stayed for a week at the end of April. This hotel is unpretentious, very clean, very pleasant, very welcoming. Our room had a balcony avec vue mer, looking out across the marina toward the rade de Villefranche. Altogether lovely for a pre-dinner glass of rose. Our hosts were lovely and helpful. Furnishings in the room were new-looking, not opulent,...

We have been Villefranche sur Mer on several occasions but this was our first time on the Darse side. We stayed in Hotel Darse for 4 nights, the room was perfect for our needs, clean and quite spacious. We did not have breakfast so can not comment. The main town is only a 10 minute walk away along the shore....

Beautiful & Relaxing Vacation In need of a TLC time, have been to Villefranche many times but only recently found Hotel de la Darse. The staff were so accommodating for any of my questions, and always helpful. Directions, recommendations, taxi to airport, etc. The area is super relaxing with many dining options. Only wanting one more meal after their bountiful...

Since we were not planning on being at the hotel much we decided to take a garden-view room. The room was clean; bed comfortable; loved the towel warmer; and the view was just fine...it overlooked a garden, houses up the hill and on top of the hill a fort/castle(?). We did not eat the breakfast so we cannot comment on...

This is the best price/quality we found in a four week trip through France & Italy. Right on the water facing across the beautiful harbor to the sea. Top floor room is worth the hike (no elevators). Large, light-filled tastefully decorated room with roomy terrace. Excellent breakfast on the ground floor terrace outside.

Hotel de la Darse and villefranche was absolutely perfect for a 5 day escape and to celebrate a birthday. Exceptionally clean, staff very friendly, reasonably priced and in a beautiful location. Opposite the small harbour -five minutes walk along the sea front path to the charming old town and cosmopolitan sea front restaurants and bars. The hotel doesn't have a...
