Villa Elise
Ranked #7 of 15 Vence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 June 2017

We liked the place (and Dominique, the hostess) so well we stayed an extra night. Villa Elise (elsewhere listed as "Aux 3 Lits que Chantent" is very well located both for Vence and for exploring the surrounding areas. Nice and Monaco are easily reachable by bus and train from the bus stop across the street. Our rooms (we moved for the extra night) were comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was a treat, with Dominique making crepes and home-made jams.

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor to the right as you enter has its own garden

I booked this hotel back in February, as part of a complex family holiday in several locations. They asked for payment upfront and after I had done so, emailed to confirm receipt. Thank god we only planned to come for one night. We arrived this afternoon, after calling ahead an hour beforehand as requested - no response on either of the numbers provided in the email but we left several messages. When we arrived, the place was shuttered, with a lock on the gate. We rang the doorbell but no one came. Eventually, we asked a neighbor who told us the owners had packed up and gone to Mauritius, with no plans to return. She mentioned a new owner from Paris but said he hadn't appeared yet.
We had to find a new hotel for the night. We lost 185 euros on two rooms. This place does not exist DO NOT BOOK

The hosts and the location made this a perfect place to stay for our 6 nights in Vence. Everything previous reviewers have written about the hospitality is true, and being able to walk into the medieval city each evening for a choice of restaurants offering delicious menus at a fraction of the price we would pay at home was a perfect end to each day.

The positives: the location was very good; close to the old town and moments from the bus station. The hosts are friendly and helpful, providing tourist advice and making sure you feel comfortable. The breakfast table on the terrace was also quite nice. The bathroom was clean and new.

The negatives: The room I had was dark and not particularly airy, and the linen, beddings and towels were rather minimalist and more like a youth hostel rather than a B&B. I was not impressed with the mixed hangers from various retailers that were provided on a rack, serving as a wardrobe. I was also surprised that they did not clean the room everyday; every B&B I had stayed before at this price had provided minimal cleaning/towel changing everyday. The breakfasts provided lots of choice and the cooked eggs were nice, but most of the items seemed to be from supermarkets. At the price charged, it would have been nice to be provided some local produce, fresh juice/ bread or homemade items. We may have been spoiled by previous B&B hosts, but I did not feel like they were interested in providing a special experience to the guests over and beyond what they needed to provide.
