Welcome to the heart of Villefranche-sur-Mer

If France is recognised as the most touristic country in the world, you should know that the South-East is a destination of choice for any traveller looking for adventure of all kinds.

In fact, as well as being a land of gastronomy (where you can sample exceptional products such as foie gras and duck breast), it also has a heritage rich in history and places that are a must-see!

Villefranche-sur-Mer is one of the towns in the south-east of France that's well worth a visit. Bordering on Nice, this town in the PACA region is perfect for a weekend getaway or a few days' 'discovery' tour. Nestling at the end of its harbour, Villefranche-sur-Mer enjoys a mild, pleasant climate all year round.

The bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer is an ideal spot for stand-up paddle boarding.

Its geographical orientation and relief, protected from the wind and waves, mean that the sea is always calm.

Stand-up paddle boarding is an environmentally-friendly, easy and fun sport that lets you move around the water at your own pace and in silence.

The hotel offers a range of packages to suit all tastes, whether you want to treat your staff or clients to a moment of sharing and communion: one, two or even more hours of shared fun and relaxation!

We can also suggest a kayak trip.

On the spot, we can organise a well-deserved drink for you after a great time together!
