              Car: Not Necessary

              Villefranche is unique as a village on the French Riviera in that it has not been over-run by apartment development and commercial tourism. Remarkably, it is still an authentic French and Nicoise fishing village of 7,000 residents. Although it is in the heart of the Riviera, with Monaco on one side and Nice on the other, it is still a little village where the same families have lived for centuries and people know each other - it is a little enclave.

              The site of what is now Villefranche, Beaulieu-sur-Mer and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat has been settled since prehistoric times. Celto-ligurian tribes roamed the area and established farming communities on the surrounding hills. The Greeks and later the Romans used the natural harbour as a stop-over en route to the Greek settlements around the Western Mediterranean. It is a strategically important area where the Alps join the Mediterranean separating France from southern Europe.

              Located on the exclusive Cote d'Azur, Villefranche-sur-Mer is ideally located 10 minutes east of Nice, 10 minutes from Monaco / Monte-Carlo and 30 minutes from Nice-Cote d'Azur Airport. It is served by the Nice / Menton bus and the Cote d’Azur rail line. It enjoys a wonderful sandy, south-facing beach and is noted for the number and quality of its restaurants. Villefranche Bay is popular for scuba diving and snorkelling and other water sports. There are many scenic walks for all levels of walkers. Popular day trips include Monaco for its Casino and Grand Prix, Nice for the Old Town, Promenade des Anglais, shopping and art galleries, Cannes for the glitz, Paul de Vence for art, Ventimiglia for its market, and the old hill top village of Eze. Centrally located, the apartment is 5 minutes from shops including bakeries, supermarkets, greengrocers, pharmacies, ATM, restaurants, bus-stop, car park and 10 minutes to the beach, train station or l'Institute de Francais

              The coastal walk around Cap Ferrat is a must as is a visit to Villa Rothschild and Gardens. The hill walks take you into the foothills of the Alp Maratime affording magnificent views of the coast line from Menton to Cannes.

              For families there is a very popular water and theme park in Antibes. White water rafting is available in the Roya and Var Valleys.

              Nice, Monaco and Cannes host many musical festivals including the Nice Jazz Festival in July, ballet, opera and classical concerts during the winter months and of course Nice Carnival in February. Golf available at La Turbie, 10 miles by car.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Eileen and I live in Ireland, north of Dublin. As we are in our mid sixties, with our family grown-up and semi retired we lead a less stressful life and enjoy hill walking and travel. We visit Villefranche three to four times a year thanks to Ryan Air!!! We have always loved holidaying in France, having taken many 'gite' holidays with the children. We love their food, their life style, the brightness / light of the South of France and particularly the friendliness of the Nicoise.

              Why the Owner Chose Villefranche-sur-Mer:
              In 2005 we were fortunate in buying 'Eclat de Couleur'. We chose this apartment because of its wonderful Sea View Terrace and its location being close to restaurants, shops and bus stops in the Old Town of Villefranche on the Cote d'Azur. It is bright and airy. The terrace is a wonderful sun trap with the enchanting colours of the Bay, the Terracotta of the Old Town roofs against the pine forests of the Cap Ferrat. It has an excellent location being a five minute walk to the shops, restaurants and bus stop and ten minutes to the sandy beach. A bus every fifteen minutes to Nice or Monaco at 1€ per trip gives you excellent opportunities for day trips.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The central location of this apartment allows us to holiday without a car, choosing instead public transport for day trips along the coast or inland exploring the valleys of Maritime Provence. Buses are cheap, clean and frequent. The apartment is a great base for day-trips. Popular trips are Monaco, Nice for shopping, art galleries, Promenade des Anglais, the Old Town and Flower Market. Further afield there is St Paul de Vence for art, Cannes and its Croisette, Ventimiglia (Italy) for its market A walk to Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild for its villa, formal gardens and fountains, not forgetting a coffee and a choice of the best gateaux on the Cote d'Azur is always worthwhile. Being avid hill walkers we love to head off on the bus up to the hills behind Nice, La Turbie or Menton. On Summer evenings another favourite is to grab the swimming gear, pick up a bottle of wine and a pizza and head for the beach and enjoy the setting sun over Mont Albion and the waves lapping the sea shore. During the Winter season we have enjoyed classical concerts and an opera from the varied programs in Nice, Monaco and Cannes.
