“Villa Francia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Very nice resort, but huge which means the pools are not sufficient. Also no supervision provided and no first aid trained staff in case of emergency in the pool areas. No air conditioning in the accommodations which get extremely hot. Wi-fi is not great and should be included in the price. The free shuttle service to the centre has only got 8 seats (!)

Very good value for money. All 7 people enjoyed every day of the 7 day stay. The free shuttle bus between the Hotel de Ville and the complex was good but we were unaware of it on arrival in Cannes and endured a long uphill walk with baggage as we did not know about it in advance.

This was our first time to the south of France as a family. The weather was warmer than expected, so we really missed aircondition.
The WiFi didn't work in our appartment, so we (our children) had to go to the reception all the time. (Found out this after having paid)
We never got to ride the free shuttle bus - it only had seats for 8 passengers.

We stayed 4 persons in the biggest appartment meant for 6-7 people. The appartmen was still small and cramped since it was on two floors, and we were not impressed with the redecoration. Kitchen section is very good, otherwise the redecoration looks like it was done in the 80-ties. The second bedroom with bunk beds is so small it's a joke. Two micro-bathrooms both smelled of mould, and corner shower had black patches of fungus. The apartment was hot without air conditioning. We rented 2 mobile air conditioning machines from the hotel, but the temperature was still not below 25 degrees at night. No clearing or cleaning during the stay.

This place probably workes well for families with children who wants to stay in the hotel area all the time - the pool is lovely with a great view, but there are no other places to eat close by.

This is a huge tourist trap - too many people in one place for our taste, and you feel that the hotel could be anywhere.....it doesn't give you the true flavour of lovely Provence. We chose to leave after 2 days and go to a hotel in Nice instead. A shame perhaps, but holidays are precious.

Very pleasant place distant from the city hustle and noise, yet with good beach accessibility, suites well equipped, comfortable beds, well maintained and clean, safe pool-site also for smaller children.

Apartments nice enough but vary in standard of refurbishment. Very poor description of apartments at time of booking. Residence set in lovely grounds with excellent swimming pool area. 5th time we've been and book the same same apartment direct with P&V. Easy walk into town along the front. Everything was so much more expensive this year in comparison to other years.

Room Tip: Booking the largest apartment doesn't necessarily give you the most space.

Have stayed at Villa Francia for a week to ten days most years for the last ten now.

As other reviewers have pointed out its not a 5 star hotel (nor does it pretend to be in its brochure) but as a base for touring round this part of France it's perfect.

The views from the rooms are amazing, so lovely to sit out on the balcony and eat breakfast / dinner every day. The rooms are quite basic but on my last two stays have had refurbished ones with new furniture and decor, they are clean, have good basic cooking facilities and are comfortable.

The infinity swimming pool is great, it's huge, very clean and has great views of Cannes. The landscaping around the complex is also lovely.

The food at the restaurant is good but quite expensive for what it is, better to either eat out in cannes or shop out at the amazing local market and dine in.

It's a 10 minute stroll down to the very clean beach, slightly longer coming back as its up a hill. You can also drive down as there is parking at the bottom of the hill.

I visit here with my (almost) octogenarian parents and they love it as a relaxing holiday, would recommend for all ages.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room on the left side of the complex (near the building Ingres) the views on this sid...
