Merci Thierry and Guy...you have a beautiful property and are excellent hosts! I booked this property based on Trip Advisor reviews and was very pleased. The rooms are charming and the breakfast was simple but very good, with fresh croissants and fresh fruit. Vence is cute but small and 2 nights was enough to see Vence and St. Paul de... More

We look upon Thierry and Guy, the proprietors, as old friends. We have stayed at La Maison du Frêne several times, and we are always looking forward to our next. Everything in this guest house is 'just so'. Perfectly decorated, perfectly warm and comfortable. Attention to details is such that every object, piece of furniture or Artwork on which your... More

Arriving by taxi gratefully organised on our behalf by the proprietor of the hotel we were impressed by the immediate location of this small hotel. Perfectly positioned on the edge of the main village it has a beautiful outlook over the valley towards the surrounding mountains. Our room, La Chapelle, had an interesting decor to say the least and other... More

We stayed at La Maison du Frêne for 7 nights and we couldn't have picked a nicer place for our trip to the Côte d'Azur. The place is as described in all of the other reviews; you feel like you might have accidentally walked into an exhibition instead of your place of accommodation! We had Suite Pop Art which is...

We stayed 3 nights at this fabulous Chambre d'hote in Vence. Our room (Vallauris) was spacious and relaxing with enough art books to keep me happy for weeks. Breakfasts (with croissants freshly made by Guy every morning) were taken in a room which was a feast for the eyes of 50's/60's and up art works. Thierry was a perfect and... More

We stayed two nights in Vence - which is a beautiful city and our favourite in the region - and La Maison du Frene was adorably different. You definitely got the impression that you were staying in someone's home and that each detail had been considered and put together in a thoughtful way. The house - because it is more... More

Probably one of the best places I've been in a long time, wonderful inviting hosts, they gave us great tips and it was a pleasure to have them around, very large rooms with a living area, great french breakfast. I'm from the hotel business and I must say every detail was carefully thought of and above that, the room was... More

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...
