Lonely Planet review
This arty guesthouse is quite astonishing. Yes, that Niki de Saint Phalle is an original. And yes, the César too. It’s an essential sleepover for true art lovers, if only to enjoy the superb rooms with their classic or contemporary looks and original works. Owners and avid art collectors Thierry and Guy are a mine of information on the local art scene.
Our independent authors have visited La Maison du Frene and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Vence.
