We stayed in the Apartment, close to Villa Estelle. The accommodation was lovely and breakfast at the Villa was superb, in the picturesque courtyard, with lovely views of Cagnes Sur Mer. We had everything we could need in the apartment - comfy bed, a well-stocked kitchen and breakfast bar area, iron, towels, hair dryer etc. The medieval town is so... More

I was looking forward for my vacation and my stay at Cagnes Sur Mer. My expectations on the villa turned out unrealistically negative. The photos on the site, as well as the reviews on tripadvisor raised my level of enthusiasm, however my experience was not as expected. For me the first downside was the access to the villa. Roads are... More

This is my last time I book in such a villa style hotel. There might be other villas in the French Cote d'Azur which provides better quality, however not this one. Price is hefty for the quality of room, service and location. I would price the night not more than 70 or 80 Euro per night, however they are charging... More

You could not fail to love this hotel with its charm and beautiful location. It is housed in the old village inn. which has been lovingly restored, in a picturesque mountaintop medieval part of Cagnes Sur Mer. The room was lovely (7 out of 10 for cleanliness though as we found old nails on the carpet). Olivia, the Chinese intern,... More

Small, historic villa in the medieval village of Haut-de-Cagnes. Innkeeper, Fiona (English speaking), took wonderful care of us and answered all of our questions about the area.
