“friendliest hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

We stayed at this charming hotel, and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of the owner and her son. The lovliest people ! She even gave me a souvenir, an heirloom piece, I was very touched. I would highly recommend this hotel in the French Riviera. The room was very large and very comfortable

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2007

Their website is artfully crafted to make it seem like a quaint cute gem but really it's kind of dumpy. Good news is you are staying in an amazing and expensive part of France for pennies, but when it's 90 degrees out, it would be nice to have air conditioning. Also, this room was so small, I couldn't open my suitcase all the way, there's not enough room! I side stepped over to the window because the doorless mini fridge blocked the path. There was a bouquet of smells such as cigarettes, old vase water that needed to be changed and perhaps dog pee (?)
When I turned down the sheets, I discovered several hairs from a mystery person.

  • Liked — friendly staff, location, free wifi
  • Disliked — smokers, no ac, mini fridge doesnt work, bad lighting, smells weird
  • Stayed July 2007, traveled solo
