Beautiful 4-bedroom hotel, with every room decorated uniquely. We stayed in the 'pop art' room on the top floor...it was huge, like a mini apartment. Bed was comfortable, interior was stunning and every detail attended to from Marilyn Monroe canvases to Roy Liechistein (sp?) books. I could've stayed for hours in the reception room where we ate breakfast (which was... More

We loved this guest house/B&B. The owners, Thierry, Guy and Antoine are excellent hosts providing beautiful continental breakfasts, mixed with good humour and tips on where to go. There were four of us and both couples had beautiful, spacious rooms with lovely bed linen and amazing decor. Each room is themed differently and each day one can discover something different...

When you leave a hotel, saying, "I can't wait to return," you know you've found a gem! Guy and Thierry took this charming 17th century house and transformed it into a 4 room inn that, on first impression, feels like you're in the most beautiful, colorful and whimsical museum! After doing much research on accommodations for my month-long trip to... More

What a find! Guy and Thierry have created the most hospitable art gallery in the world - and only one of the art pieces is behind glass. A wonderfully generous place, generous in space of suites, the pile of art books in the room, original art in your suite, attentive and warm service throughout -and I even had the pleasure... More

This is a very nice bed and breakfast right in the center of town in a beautiful old 17th century house. The décor is colorful and interesting with art and little touches everywhere in the vein of Matisse, Piccaso, and others of that era. We had a nice big bedrooms, small sitting room and lovely big bathroom. Everything was nice... More

An amazingly vibrant and art filled B&B in Vence. Guy & Thierry sure do know a thing or two about style and service... Our eyes were bursting out of their sockets at the wonderful eclectic interiors. It was the opposite of boring, in fact I can't remember a place ever being this fun and interesting. And Guy was the perfect... More

This exquisitely furnished, extremely warm and cozy is like staying in the lovely country home of friends. The owners make you feel like a houseguest and are chockfull of excellent recommendations on dining, touring, etc. However, the town of Vence, where the Maison du Frene, was not what I had expected. As French towns go it lacked a certain je-ne-sais-quoi... More

This place is a gem! The location is right in the middle of the city. The quirky, cool interior throughout the bed and breakfast is incredible cool. You can just go around all day and discover all the details. I had the "Pop Art" room who was big, almost like a small apartment. The details of pop culture, art, books,... More
