“Best Place Ever!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

When you think of a small medieval village in France, what do you see? Well this is it! The owners were wonderful and so friendly, such a wonderful family owned business. The food is absolutely wonderful and creatively put together. We enjoyed the light morning breakfast was satisfying. We are planning to bring our children back this summer!

Room Tip: There is more of a view on the front rooms.

We went to the Auberge for dinner with a 4 months old girl . The attitude was great , the food was very tasty and they had a nice wine list .We enjoyed all dishes and the menu actually offered deserts we could barely touch as we were already full .

Room Tip: The stove is heating the dining room - stay away from it ...

I have stayed at Auberge des Seigneurs several times and have always, as on this occasion, found it an excellent choice. It is a family run hotel and the welcome is warm. I love the traditional, simply furnished, Provençal bedrooms each named after an artist, I think, with Vencois connections and - wonderfully - no television ! The Renoir room, for example, is large, with a view out towards the hills, a really comfortable bed, a pristine bathroom and lovely touches - fresh flowers and fruit on the table. The bedrooms are serviced regularly throughout the day. The location right at the heart of the 'old town' is superb. Car parking arrangements are slightly complicated, inevitable in this old part of Vence but a small price to pay for the wonderful location with galleries, interesting small shops, cafes and restaurants literally on the doorstep.

To add to its virtues, the hotel has a great restaurant (closed I think on Sundays and Mondays but best to check) which has an excellent reputation locally, with spit roasted dishes a particular speciality. Everything is freshly made and in my experience, delicious.

All in all a wonderful place to stay, and one where you can, if you wish, enjoy a very authentic, slightly laid back Provençal way of life. Travelling by bus is a very easy option if you are seeking a slower pace of sightseeing in the region. There are regular buses to Nice and other destinations throughout the day with good connections on to other places on the Côte d'Azur such as Menton and Cannes. There is a delightful woodland walk from Vence to St Paul, and Vence is really easy to get to from Nice - bus 400 or the 94 from Jardins Albert 1er.

This is a jewel, one of a kind. Sandrine, and family, made this a unique experience. The open fire cooking was a delight. The chicken cooked this way takes an hour, so you need to plan ahead.... but it is worth it! You are treated to a 14th century hotel!!! with a gourmet restaurant attached! As part of the outer wall of Vence, you can stroll the city at your leisure after your dinner! Our stay of 5 nights were an experience to remember for a lifetime. Vence is central so that day trips were easy and enjoyable. And always fun to return to at the end of the day.

Room Tip: During the high season, request "not over the restaurant". There can be noise until 10:30...

This is an excellent auberge in the middle of this pretty little town a few miles North of Nice.
We had a pretty room with a little table and very comfortable twin beds (exceptional value at 90 euros plus breakfast at 9 euros per person), and a simple functional bathroom with a good shower.

Our room overlooked the road but the double glazing was extremely effective in keeping the noise out. There is no air conditioning but a fan is provided. We had a good breakfast, with some meats and cheese and fresh fruit as well as bread and croissants.

We have just spent 11 glorious days in Vence at Auberge des Seigneurs. It was truly a magical experience. Our hosts Danielle, Sandrine and Charlie were incredibly helpful and always wiling to assist us in every way from storing our bicycles to doing our washing. he room was charming very romantic and everything we could have asked for. Breakfast was delightful beautiful setting and dinner in the restaurant was wonderful. If ever any happy travellers are venturing to Vence we can highly recommend this hotel. You will have a superb experience in all ways.

Room Tip: They are all charming rooms!!!

Must admit I've never stayed at the hotel, but I have frequented the restaurant for the past 7 years! The family run establishment is delightful. The chef is a master! What comes out of his kitchen is just heavenly! Food is prepared fresh, cooked to perfection and exceptionally creative. Friends we've introduced to the restaurant insist on going there whenever they come into town. Not only do you leave feeling very happy, but the hostess always sends off the ladies with a long stem rose....such a nice touch! Nice wine list, too. I could not find to rate the restaurant, so I took the liberty of using the hotel review section. This is a must when visiting the Vence/St Paul de Vence area...we drive from Antibes just for his cooking! oh la la!
