Lonely Planet review
Teetering over the water's edge at Villefranche's picturesque port, the Welcome is one classy establishment. The 35 rooms are all different – some Cocteau-themed, others Provençal, others art deco – but all share the same high-quality furnishings, sweeping sea views and fantastic location (the bus and train station are just five minutes' walk).
