“Location still great, but resort tired and not value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Been loads of times, but this year charges being added for basics such as towels. Still charging for Wi-Fi which is very poor and only has local TV; not even a world news service!

Accommodation not great, but offset to some extent by the great location. Would I go again?, probably not unless costs reflect the accommodation and they enter the real world and stop charging for basics, which I would expect free of charge at any two star hotel.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

Living in a garden with a pool near the idyllic bay of Villefranche sur mer was a nice way of staying in the south of France.
Here you have the possibilies to reach from Cannes to the Italian border by bus or train.

Room Tip: Ask for a studio with a sea view!

We rented a flat from a neighbour who owns one of the apartments at P&V Villefranche. It really depends who you are renting your apartment from. Many of the apts are privately owned. Ours was clean but ageing. That goes for the whole complex. The staff were not helpful at all. Luckily I had plenty of regional tips from friends. The staff didn't seem to know about anything outside of Villefranche. The location was great. Walking distance from two great beaches. Pool was nice but the whole thing is very deep (I couldn't touch the bottom anywhere but the stairs). We were travelling with a 16 month old baby so the lack of a kiddie pool was disappointing given the number of families with kids there. Overall felt like a retirement community. As mentioned earlier, the whole place was very clean and quiet though--so made for a relaxing holiday. Outdoor spaces/landscaping very well maintained.

Had a quick glance at weekly rates if you are to rent directly from P&V (as opposed to a private owner) and prices seemed really high...not great value. Then again, we didn't shop around so maybe it is a good deal. Would we stay here again? Probably not. But we did have a great time.

We have just returned froma week at L'Ange Gardien. It is in a beutiful location between Villefranche surMer Beaulieu.About a 1km walk from each. It is close to the Baulieu Gare which makes publictransport easy The pool and staff in L'Ange Gardien are excellent. You should also try swimming in the Mediteranean in Beaulieu. The sea is very warm and you can swim out about 100metres to a jumping off point. A walk along Cap Ferat is aslo a must.

Room Tip: Rooms are very small

This is an apartment block, and not a hotel, but has useful extra services. It has a wonderful location just 5 minutes from a very pleasant public beach and has fantastic views. It is worth paying extra to get a sea view.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view - it may cost a bit extra but it'swell worth it.

Tiny rooms in the south of France, albeit with a view! The property is well located super close to Jean Cap Ferrat, Nice and Monaco, so it is a great base to explore the area, it just lacks any real style. The property is pretty old and in need of modernisation. The service was poor when we requested new light bulbs to be replaced in the bathroom.

Also, no towels were provided, beds were not made up, just sheet kits provided for you to make your own bed! Our second room had no kettle, just a coffee maker! As well on arrival the first room we were offered smelled of damp and thankfully we were able to be given an upstairs room, this made a big difference to the amenity of our holiday.

Also, no servicing of the rooms took place during our 6 night stay. Oh and only 1 toilet roll provided for the room :-/

Room Tip: Stay at the hotel 3 minutes away called The Royal Riviera. World class! If you cannot try and get a...
