A very nice and beautiful little none-french type hotel. A nice view over the harbour the and bay where Villefranche sur mer is located. The bathroom is space with a proper bathtub that is nicely decorated with large dark tiles. Every rooms has a balcony with two chairs and a table. The curtains are a bit thin so the street... More

A group of seven people stayed in four rooms for two nights. Two had water view rooms with balconies. The other two rooms were garden views. The water views were wonderful on sunny days. I would recommend those rooms. All of the rooms were neat and clean. The wifi worked well. Breakfast was good with a good selection. We ate... More

We stayed in the double room with the garden view, which was lovely. If staying any longer then one night we would have paid the extra for a sea view. Bed was very comfy and the room was spotlessly clean. There was free on street parking outside, although this would be a lot busier in summer. Very nice walk along... More

We stayed at the Hotel de la Darse for one night with a group of four people in two rooms, one with harbor view and one with garden view. To be honest, the harbor could only be seen if you leaned out of the window a little bit and turned to the left. Definitely not worth the additional 10 or... More

My husband and I stayed here our first night in France on our honeymoon. The staff were helpful and the room was quiet for the most part, except we were next to the stairwell and could hear the louder guests. I loved the view and even though the bathroom was small the shower water was hot with great pressure. I... More

My boyfriend and I spent 3-4 days visiting Ville-France Sur Mer staying in the hotel Darse. The hotel room was lovely with a great view, the bedroom was clean and tidy it was cleaned every day by the cleaners. Breakfast wasn't included but you were able to have it for an extra 7 euros every day, I thought the breakfast... More

Finding the hotel was not as easy as we thought it would be. The roads in were steep and with hairpin bends. The hotel is very dated. There are no lifts to the rooms, which we knew before booking. Every door has an old style lock and key and all doors creaked. The noise was constant. There was no bar... More

My first night in Villefranche, I was lucky to stay at Hotel de la Darse! My room was lovely, unbelievably clean and spacious and comfortable with a view of the hills of Villefranche. There was no lift and I had a super-heavy suitcase - but the lady at the desk helped me carry it up the marble stairs to my... More

My wife and I have been coming to Villefranche for 12 years and have stayed at this hotel many times. We have always been charmed by the Darse and have brought friends and family here too. The Proprietor and her staff are exceptionally friendly and make our stay truly memorable. The rooms are spotless and all newly decorated, with modern... More
