We have just spent our second break at La Maison. It is truly unique - like staying as a guest in a private art collection. Great attention to detail, very comfortable and warm, friendly hosts. Just outside the old walled town, which is picturesque and has some excellent restaurants. Highly recommended.

Remarkable hotel, with imaginative interiors and full of works of art. Guy, the proprietor, is charming, and is as characterful as his hotel. He is ready to make excellent suggestions of sights to see and places to eat. The rooms are furnished to a very high standard, and a spacious and comfortable. It is a real pleasure to spend time...

What a beautiful place to stay, with such friendly and welcoming hosts. Great help on arrival and before by e-mail, nothing too much trouble. We ate in two restaurants recommended by Guy, and both were delicious. Easy bus into Nice, although best part of an hour, cheap and better than trying to park! Lovely room, clean and spacious with top... More

My friend and I had two rooms here in May of 2013. The hosts could not have been more helpful with everything. The place is full of fun art, I had the Marilyn Monroe room. Comfortable beds, spacious rooms, goodies for breakfast, it was wonderful! While there, unfortunately the street to the front was being worked on, but it didn't... More

Perfectly located in the small town of Vence, rooms are very comfortable (we didn't have any noise issue). Bathroom was good - although shampoo was missing the first night. The hosts are charming and very welcoming. Breakfast was plenty - and croissants in particular were very good. All in all, everything's been said about this place already, you cannot go... More

Perhaps our impression was tainted by our arrival experience: We were told we could arrive anytime after 3pm, so when we got there at 3:30pm nobody was there. We called the number several times and emailed, but only after 25 minutes did we hear back, then it took another 15 min for someone to show up and let us in.... More

This inn is lcoated in an old house with three guest rooms. It is a fascinating little find full of eclectic art with large rooms which are more like apartments. It is run by two gentlemen who we found tremendously helpful and very concerned to ensure that our time in Vence was pleasant. We were there for three nights and... More

We were disappointed on arrival to find the street was being resurfaced, both noisy and irritating for us and the owner. However the maison was charming, interesting and individual. Our room was spacious and delightfully furnished in country house style alas we couldn't open the window without letting the noise of pneumatic drills in. When I asked if they had... More

There is not so much to add to the appreciations of former guests - but maybe just that they all are right to give excellent marks. A very original place to stay, comfortable suites, attentive hosts, so much to see, in short words, a perfect place for a few days off! Guy and Thierry are very proud of their region,... More

I have never written a review before. For the first time I am inclined to write and explain the privilege of being guests at the Maison du Frene. The building, the design and decorations, the food are all wonderful. However, a great hotel is defined by its people. Our hosts, Guy & Thierry are a class above anything in France.... More
