Hotel Welcome: the poet's point of view

boutique hotel design

Recognisable by its pink facade barred with four blue lines, the Hotel Welcome has been contemplating its reflection in the tranquil turquoise waters of Villefranche for more than four generations.

The hotel is adjacent to the town's Provençal market, whose scents rise in streams to its windows, and directly on the waterfront, where the sea is so quiet that it barely sways the sleepy masts moored there. Little touches, rare enough to be reported, punctuate the abode in the image of the night chocolates carefully deposited on the pillow by invisible hands.

Of all the special moments that punctuate your stay, there is a plentiful, refined breakfast, which can be enjoyed on a balcony where it looks as though the sea itself might touch it. The general mood of the port soothes and transports.

In the evening, music wins over the balconies, an invitation from the port to come down and browse like a poem, as Cocteau, who stayed in this exceptional place several times, away from all commotion, might say.
