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

This is the loveliest hotel in the most beautiful spot on the French Riviera. Views to die for at a price that won't break the bank. Friendly staff, the whole experience was utterly charming. This is what dreams are made of!

My Dad who lives in the area booked us into this hotel for two nights during our recent visit to South of France. From the minute i saw the hotel I knew I was going to love it. We had a sea view room on the second floor and i filled up when I saw the view. It's absolutely outstanding.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Provencal previously which is very similar to this one, can't say which one is better located. We spent the first night in a standard room, which was quite small, especially with a baby, even though we only used a small pop-up travel cot, not the normal one. Second night we paid some extra for the... More
