Unique location for this fully remodelled comfy apartment, on a super typical square of the old Villefranche sur mer. Pretty quiet, and so close to shops, restaurants, and fun. About 7 mins walk from the beach, train station about 7 mins walk away.

The living area has an open plan fully equipped kitchen with all you need to cook a French meal when you come back from the market. The dining table is simple and clean, with sitting for 5.
The first bedroom has a double bed, and opens to the back balcony. The second bedroom has a pull out comfy sofa double bed. The 2 bedrooms have large closets.
The bathroom has a bathtub/shower, and has been redone recently. As most places in France, there is an independent loo.

                          For a step back in time, and for a real local ambiance, Villefranche sur mer historical town is just heaven! Shops, restaurants, beaches, walks, the Volti Museum in the 1515's old Citadelle, the Royal Port of La Darse, the Cocteau Chapel, are few of the jewels you'll find in Villefranche sur mer.

                          Moren than anything, Villefranche old town is an atmosphere, it's relaxing, walking up and down the medieval streets, reaching the seashore, or just going out for a coffee and a croissant. Small paved streets, in some you can hear the birds but you are really nearby everything !

                          And only 20 min from Nice by bus, or 6 min by train, 20 min from Monaco and Monte Carlo by bus, Villefranche is just the perfect starting point to explore our great French Riviera.


                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 1900

                          About: My name is Muriel, and I have been a property manager in the area for now over 20 years. Years spent trying to give the maximum service to all my guests, to share my love for the area, and my love for the local people too. Many years ago, I have decided to manage and rent only apartments or villas that I would feel comfortable putting my own family in. To me they need to be spotless, and very very well equipped. Not just 2 skillets and 2 pots for 5 people, or only 4 plates ! A nice reward is when I hear : it's just like the pictures, but my best reward is actually : It's even better than in the pictures ! All the properties are well maintained, I always add little things here and there by listening to our guests comments. Should you need anything during your stay, I can assure that even the impossible is sometimes done to fix anything as fast as possible. Lots of my guests have become friends and come back regularly. I love to travel, and I know how important a vacation is, especially when you come from far away. In each of my properties, you'll find a book with all my little inside tips and information, to find the places to see, or to eat, and live like locals if you'd like ! As a property manager, by Law in France, I have a license, and I have an insurance up to 110 000 Euro to protect owners and renters of any problem. To keep my license and my insurance, I am audited once a year. This is your best guarantee that I 'll always work my best to meet you needs and follow my ethic line and standard. I am a the happy mother of 3 great children, a 18 year old and twins 11 years old, the wife of a great man of heart, and an elected city council of my little town Eze where I leave. Should you not know the area, feel free to ask what would be best for you according to your needs, I'll be more than happy to help. Wishing you a very pleasant Villefranche and the Riviera discovery.

                          Why Villefranche-sur-Mer:
                          The owner of this property was born in it, 65 years ago, as it's been in his family for years. Like a lot of homes in the old historical Villefranche sur mer, it used to be a fisherman house and his family. As he had to move for job purposes, he's kept the apartment, and only comes back in the summer.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Great location, by a square with a fountain, with a view on the old town church, minutes walk from the bakery, shops and restaurants, a real real local feeling, especially if you sit out by the front door. No cars around, only people walking by, the sound of the fountain, and steps from the seashore. A home where you'll find all the modern comfort, and at the same time, you do feel like the time has stopped in the heart of historical Villefranche sur mer.
