Welcome to "Villa Aimee", a charming 19th century mansion overlooking the pretty Spa village of Vals les Bains. An easy 5 min stroll finds you in the centre of town & close proximity to the Thermal Spa and Casino. We offer a number of rooms & spacious suites each with their own separate toilet, bathroom and two with spa baths. Our Swimming Pool is open from May-September. Breakfast is a delicious and sumptuous affair not to be missed of both home made & local market produce from Ardeche. Whether it’s a leisurely promenade around the 3500 sq/m of terraced flora & fauna or meandering around the house admiring the many original contempary art pieces & collectables. Leila and Christophe invite you to share their experiences. We promise you a unique & enjoyable holiday to remember.

Charming B&B high atop a mountain!

4.0 on October 04, 2009

The Villa Aimee is a wonderful B&B, complete with an absolutely charming hostess, Leila! We spent 2 nights at this lovely B&B in the Rhone Alps and were totally satisfied with the room, ambiance, food and nearby villages! We look forward to returning for a longer stay sometime in the near future. The Wilsons in Kentucky!!

Great place, equally great people

My wife and friends and I had wonderful time at Villa Aimee. Vals Les Bains is a beautiful little town located in the midst Ardeche/Rhone Valley wine regions -- easy car rides to great adventures. The property is very nice and well appointed; a 150 year-old home with all of the conveniences of the 21st century. Any or all of those attributes would have made Villa Aimee a top notch B&B at a great value, but for me the hosts Leila and Christophe were great fun and very laid-back, and made all the difference. While I am more inclined to B&B stays over hotels, Villa Aimee exceeded my expectations at every turn. Would have loved to stay longer. Cheers!

Villa Aimee is a wonderful base to travel the region from. The owners, Christoff and Leila are very accommodating and engaging, and they provide delicious food and wine and great conversation. We did not want to leave and will definately return to continue our many diverse conversations. Many thanks for the great time, and look forward to returning in the near future.
