“Stylish B&B with superb mountain views, bit on a pricey side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The first thing that happens when you arrive at La Viela is that you forget the interest in your room or the B&B in general. The view from the mountain side is so stunning that everything else becomes secondary.

Regaining your sense of reality the second thing you notice is the modern, clear-lined architecture of the B&B. All five guest rooms are located next to each other, all of them having their own piece of terrace with sun loungers. There is another terrace area with a pool and more loungers.

Rooms are decorated with equal minimalistic style with good quality sheets and lavender scented bath products. Our room was cleaned daily. Towels were changed once during our 5 night stay. Considering the above 30 degrees celcius temperatures and active use of beach towel and shower, it would have been more pleasant to have them changed daily, really.

A nice solution was to have an equipped communal kitchenette so that we could bring our own food stuff and cool a bottle of rosé.

Breakfast was included, served one level higher with an even better view and was wonderful. Our host served us every morning fresh bread and croissants, yoghurts, jams… The chef’s eggs according to our wishes were best we've had.

On our day of departure we needed to get on the road early to catch our plane. We were not offered and early breakfast nor a brown bag breakfast to take with us. Taking the price point into account this certainly would have been expected.

We were offered a welcome and goodbye rosé’s. La Viela is a fantastic B&B, but taking everything into account €160/night is a bit pricey in South of France, where 120€ does get you some real luxury.

Travel tip: there is wine tasting all around within a few minutes’ drive. We walked straight in to [ADD NAME] and after trying a couple of lovely wines walked out with a few bottles of delicious local rosé.

Thank you for your much appreciated review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay @ La Vie la.
Breakfast is offered for free from 8:00 in the morning, however it is correct that we do not provide night or early morning service. Prices in South of France, with pool and sea view in high season tend to be above 120€, as an example the Ibis (not that I am comparing our facilities to theirs) is at 150 €...

We enjoyed our stay at La Vie Là and we can strongly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

La Vie Là is situated on a hill, so you have a great view over the mediterranean see with the ile of Porquerolles. In the neighbourhood you can visite Saint-Tropez, Bormes-les-Mimosas, Grimaud, Sanary sur Mer, Bandol, ...and so much more.

At La Via Là you have a well organised bed room and an ensuite bath room. The bed room has a big ward robe, reading lamps near the bed... and a fresh flower in your room (appriciated these small details). The bath room has an walk-in rain shower, you have lots of space to put your toiletries on. Also important is to know that you don't hear your neighbours at all (very well insulated).

There is also a small - to share with the other guests - kitchen available (microwave, fridge, ...).

The swimming pool is heated by the sun and has a lovely temperature and a stunning view.

The host takes care of the breakfast for his guests : every morning you receive a fresh fruit salad of the day (every day another variation ;-) love it), croissants, a variation of bread, yoghurt, home made jams, butter, cheese, honey, chocolate paste, ....

Also appreciated that when we arrived, we received a carafe of wine and some small finger food.

At our last day we had a pre-drink dinner with all the other guests and shared some stories over cool rosé wine and home-baked quiches by our hosts.

We not only recommend the "bed" and "breaksfast", but also the hosts, the swimming pool and the stunning views!
