We have a flat in Villefranche which we rent to British holiday makers for much of the year. I visit regularly to deal with odds and ends so have stayed in most of the hotels in Villefranche. I used to stay mainly in the Welcome but when their prices rocketed I shot off elsewhere. The Darse used to be very cheap and very run down but the rooms have been gradually modernised over six years or so and last winter the exterior was completely refurbished, so that now the Darse is still remarkably cheap by local standards but really a very nice small hotel. This time I stayed in a clean, modern 16 sq mtr room with effective aircon, a balcony and a sea view for £70 and, for comparison, checked the Welcome where an 18 sq mtr room would have cost me £230. I guess that the Welcome has a higher level of service but it is in a much noisier location and, in most other respects, is a very similar hotel. The Darse has no restaurant but there are some close by and a total of 40 or so within a 15 minute walk.
