“Superlative!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We had a most delightful visit from Saturday 9/22 to Wednesday 9/26. Three adults, two lovely rooms. Sandrine and her Mother were helpful and charming. We had dinner on Saturday and Tuesday nights - both dinner were fabulous. It is the perfect French Inn!! We are passing the word to friends and relatives!

My husband and I stayed here last summer and it was a very nice hotel. The owners were very welcoming. We were here to stay the night before our early flight the next morning from Nice airport. We had a beautiful view from our room. The only minor inconvenient thing was that the hotel doesn't have its own parking so we had to park our car in a parking lot a block away. I would stay here again!

One of the most delightful places we've stayed anywhere. Comforable, spotlessly clean, beatuifully decorated rooms and common areas with antiques. Great service. Nice breakfast. Sorry to has missed dinner there (restaurant not open Monday night), as had hear it was great.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have great views.

We stayed for three days and found the Auberge absolutely charming. The inn is operated by a lovely women and her staff who are very much life a family. Our room on the second floor was large, spotless with beautiful antiques and lovely views out the windows. Breakfasts were in the restaurant's dining room and they were more than adequate. The one diner we had at the auberge was lamb roasted in the dining room's open-pit fire place. The lamb was fabulous.

Vence is an excellent base of operations for visiting the French Riviera. It is close to the coast and other hill towns, and it has numerous sights of its own to visit. A very charming place. Don't forget to visit the Matisse Chapel...It is an unforgettable experience.

Note: there is no elevator to the rooms above the restaurant and the parking lot is a block away from the auberge...They are both minor inconveniences to an overall wonderful stay.

I've eaten here twice and find it one of the most memorable places anywhere. In the summer you sit outside under umbrellas in a small courtyard surrounded by medieval stone buildings. In the background are the Alps Martine - a simply stunning sight as a backdrop to a lovely meal. This is a perfect French country restaurant. The food is very high quality and for a small supplement you can have meats bbq'd on the open fire in the dining room! The hotel itself is an ancient medieval building with tiled floors, oak beams, etc - very country French in style and simply beautiful. I really love this place and sought it out when re-visiting Vence recently. There are a lot of restaurants in Vence, but none with the simply stunning setting and view that Auberge Des Seigneurs has.
