In life, the relationships we have are extremely precious. This was something our dear Franny lived for. She loved to open her heart and home to everyone! She knew the art of living, loving, laughing, and good food. After living in Bermuda for 10 years, it was her dream to someday have a space where she could have guests from all over the world come enjoy a relaxed, refreshing environment. While we don't have our girl with us anymore, our vision here at Fran's View is that her sweet spirit would live on. With open arms, we invite you to feel at home.
