  • Excellent service
  • Artistic heritage makes for a nostalgic trip into the Roaring Twenties


  • Style, especially on the top floor, is distinctly nautical in flavor
  • Some rooms are oddly shaped—narrow and long—so they feel smaller
  • Secure parking is €46/day (but the limited public parking costs approx €43/24 hours)

Fodor's Review

Somerset Maugham holed up in one of the tiny crow's-nest rooms at the top, Jean Cocteau lived here while writing Orphée, and Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton used to tie one on in the bar (now nicely renovated) at this waterfront landmark—which remains a comfortable and noteworthy retreat. The best rooms are brightened with vivid colors and stenciled quotes from Cocteau; some top-floor rooms have spectacular views of the great Villefranche harbor; and all come equipped with L'Occitane products. During July and August, a three-night minimum may be required, but they'll work around your request when possible.
