Property description

Overlooking Quai Admiral Courbet and in the heart of the old town with views over the harbor nestles this beautiful one bedroom apartment. The apartment has been lovingly renovated to the very highest standard. You will adore the attention to detail. There is an adjustable bed so you can lift up your feet at night and log your memories of each wonderful day in this magical and special village. Enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony and just outside your door you will be spoiled for choice of great restaurants. Only few minutes lovely stroll away is the beach making this the best location in town. You will be surprised how quiet it is even though in the heart of the village. Read up the history of this village which dates back to the 12th century and marvel that you are following in the footsteps of the most famous artists and film stars of the 20th Century. On arrival you will be greeted with wine and flowers.


Plenty of things to do!
There are a multitude of sea sports in the area including a diving school and sailing school in Villefranche. There is fishing from the rocks or deep sea fishing, canoeing, water skiing, snorkelling, and sailing. For hill walkers there numerous routes along the coast line, and in the hills around Eze and Menton, all accessible from the bus route to Menton. For the more energetic there are higher walks in the Royal valley region which is an hours train journey from Nice, and up the Var valley to Haut Provence which is a one hour car trip from Nice.


Villas and Houses to Visit with lovely Gardens close by.

The unique micro climate has facilitated the development of world renowned gardens which are open to the public such as Villa & Jardin Ephrussi de Rothschild on Cap Ferrat, and Villa & Jardin Kerylos in Beaulieu sur Mer, both within walking distance. There are additional renowned gardens in the area of Menton.

There is a wonderful monastery to visit at La Turbie and a beautiful small church on Cap Ferrat.

Other Activities: Hill walking, painting, museums and art galleries, and Institut de Francais

Car: Not Necessary

Villefranche is situated 4km from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay as they had a villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 mins away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten mins away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 mins. The village of Eze is 20 mins by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 mins. A car is not essential and the walks here are fabulous. This is the best location on this fabulous coast by far. And if you are here to attend the French language Institute, Institut Francais it is just five minutes walk away!

Golf: Golf: There are several golf courses nearby.

Ski: Ski: Skiing is good from November onwards and is 70 km away.
