Hotel de la Darse and villefranche was absolutely perfect for a 5 day escape and to celebrate a birthday. Exceptionally clean, staff very friendly, reasonably priced and in a beautiful location. Opposite the small harbour -five minutes walk along the sea front path to the charming old town and cosmopolitan sea front restaurants and bars. The hotel doesn't have a... More

Hotel de la Darse cannot be beat for location! It's situated on Villefranche harbor right across from the marina. Views from our top floor harbor facing room (photo attached) were spectacular and lifetime memories. The room had a comfortable bed and large (by European standards) bathroom. Hotel offers option of an extra room charge for breakfast or to not have... More

Clean & comfortable in a quiet location. Even feather pillows! Villefranche is charming with lots of bars & restaurants so much nicer than the large resorts. Be warned though there is no lift. It a big staircase to the third floor. Ideal for us for one night.

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
