The Provencal Hotel is in a handy position two minutes from the bus stop and a short walk downhill to the town's restaurants. I had a couple of quibbles. Firstly the night receptionist forgot to mention that my room was in the stairwell and after 2 days in the air to reach Villefranche from Australia, I was not happy that I had to drag my suitcase up and down the hallway several times searching in vain for the room number. Secondly the fire alarm went off one afternoon and the staff seemed to have no idea how to evacuate the building. Apparently the firemen don't turn up until the staff search the building and then ring to let them know if it's a false alarm or not! Meanwhile, people who were having a siesta or reading in the garden were left to their own devices. Apart from that, and the fact that the hand held shower was at the level of the bath taps instead of at head height, the hotel was fine for a few days exploring the local area. Breakfasts were included and plentiful, and could be taken in the peaceful garden. The lady in the breakfast room was delightful, always warm and welcoming. However, if you wanted a cup of tea or coffee at any other time, there was a 5 euro cost. I was worried when I opened the door to my room and it banged against the bed but in fact both the bedroom and bathroom were a good size and the wardrobe and dressing table provided plenty of storage space. Nothing to rave about, but a perfectly adequate hotel at a reasonable price in a good location.
