This was undoubtedly the best bed I have ever slept in. The mattress was simply superb and the sheets were that beautiful percale, ironed, of my childhood. There was a real wool blanket! Perfect for the season I’d like all the synthetic stuff That makes you sweat all night. The decor has been written up elsewhere, but it is wonderful and original
There is nothing not to like about this property!

Location was wonderful and close to everything. If you’re driving and call ahead they can take the bollards out in front of Guest house so you can unload bags before finding a park. Nearest park is Marie Antoinette. Pretty cheap too. The suites are large and beautifully appointed and filled with antiques and art. Bed is super comfortable and the towels were large and fluffy. Lovely selection of herb teas to enjoy and a small bar fridge to keep your wine cold. The owners are kind and knowledgeable about the area and will provide ideas in what to see and do. Breakfast is continental style offering croissants, fresh bread , jam, fruit , orange juice and coffee.
There are no lifts and carrying heavy bags to the top floor was hard work.

We were greeted warmly despite being a little late. They were very attentive without being too over the top, wether it was checking you in, breakfast or just generally greeting you as you went to your room. Everyone was extremely pleasant, highly efficient, and very professional. The breakfast was a very good quality continental breakfast. Cereal is available, and you get, a baguette, a croissant, butter, jams, and cheeses, also a lovely fruit basket, and yogurt. Fresh Orange juice, teas and coffees. However, the most amazing thing about this hotel is the decor, it is absolutely fabulous!! No matter where you are, entrance, stairs, rooms, or breakfast room. Whoever put the rooms together certainly has a fantastic designer eye! Our suite was just amazing, extra large bed which was extremely comfortable, lovely sitting area, and a superb bathroom. All exquisitely decorated to high standards. All spotless. Plenty of good quality hangers to hang your garments in the dressing area. I can’t think of one thing that this room did not have, Safe, torch, umbrella, fridge, slippers, hairdryer, tooth mugs, soap dishes, bath mat for inside shower and outside, tissues, ....... the list goes on, everything is thought of that you would normally find in a high end hotel. Attention to detail is fantastic. It is in a great location in Vence, and very peaceful for sleeping, although there is no parking on site, (common in the area) I believe there is parking nearby. It is close to a lot of good restaurants and easy to visit the main sights. I can not recommend this place highly enough, if I could give it more smiley faces which resulted in a higher mark than 10 I would.
There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this small boutique hotel.

First of all, the owners (Guy, Thierry, and Antoine) were superb, very attentive, pro-active in communicating before and during our stay, and always happy to meet with us. Our room, the Andy Warhol room, was superb; a beautifully appointed suite to relax. Breakfast was wonderful, freshly made. The location was great - easily walkable around the old town. It was easy to get around to St Paul de Vence by bus, and Thierry gave excellent recommendations of places to include on our itinerary.
That we had to leave :( Thank you, for a lovely stay, Thierry, Guy, and Antoine! Merci beaucoup!!!

We loved everything from the artworks carefully curated and displayed around the property to the room size and the fabulous breakfasts. Superb hosts that were friendly and there when you needed them. We found the bed was super comfy, the shower was great and the place was spotlessly clean. Most certainly be back in Vence in the future and will be staying here. If only more places were created like this travelling would be blissful.
Can't think of a single thing.

The rooms are ridiculously well appointed! Really comfortable. Would come again!
Service is a bit more sporadic. To be fair it’s more of b&b rather than a hotel. But a really beautiful one.
