The first thing that happens when you arrive at La Viela is that you forget the interest in your room or the B&B in general. The view from the mountain side is so stunning that everything else becomes secondary.
Regaining your sense of reality the second thing you notice is the modern, clear-lined architecture of the B&B. All five guest rooms are located next to each other, all of them having their own piece of terrace with sun loungers. There is another terrace area with a pool and more loungers.
Rooms are decorated with equal minimalistic style with good quality sheets and lavender scented bath products. Our room was cleaned daily. Towels were changed once during our 5 night stay. Considering the above 30 degrees celcius temperatures and active use of beach towel and shower, it would have been more pleasant to have them changed daily, really.
A nice solution was to have an equipped communal kitchenette so that we could bring our own food stuff and cool a bottle of rosé.
Breakfast was included, served one level higher with an even better view and was wonderful. Our host served us every morning fresh bread and croissants, yoghurts, jams… The chef’s eggs according to our wishes were best we've had.
On our day of departure we needed to get on the road early to catch our plane. We were not offered and early breakfast nor a brown bag breakfast to take with us. Taking the price point into account this certainly would have been expected.
We were offered a welcome and goodbye rosé’s. La Viela is a fantastic B&B, but taking everything into account €160/night is a bit pricey in South of France, where 120€ does get you some real luxury.
Travel tip: there is wine tasting all around within a few minutes’ drive. We walked straight in to [ADD NAME] and after trying a couple of lovely wines walked out with a few bottles of delicious local rosé.
