We bought this beautiful apartment after spending four years renting in the area. My husband grew up nearby, and we are convinced that Villefranche is a unique paradise on the French Riviera because of its small-town, friendly ambiance so close to the wonderful city of Nice.
Our location is ideal, offering spectacular views and unusual quiet in a sought after old-town location. The Institut Francais is within walking distance, as is the beach, all shops and restaurants, and very easy access to car, bus and train (just one block from the Place de la Paix,)
The apartment has been perfectly renovated to take advantage of its charming duplex layout, and offers a bedroom, dining area and living room with comfortable sofa bed, two full baths, full kitchen and a washer/dryer. There is a large flat-screen TV with free access to both French and English channels, iPod and CD player, and telephone with free calls throughout Europe and the US.
100% refund if canceled at least 90 days before arrival date.
