Villefranche-sur-Mer apartment description

Set between the Basse and Moyenne Corniches, in a beautifully landscaped garden setting, within a secure and highly sought after block, this 1 bedroom apartment sits above Villefranche sur Mer and is just 10 minutes from the bustle of Nice. Inside, this spacious, light and bright apartment, benefits from a recent high quality refurbishment and is appointed with top of the range Italian furniture, fixtures and fittings. From a large terrace and from each of the living rooms there is ample space for al fresco dining and the views over Villefranche, Beaulieu, St Jean, Cap Ferrat, are just breathtaking. There is a dedicated parking garage in the basement. While a car is useful, for those who enjoy walking there are pleasant footpaths leading down to the waterfront restaurants of Villefranche sur Mer, beaches, harbour etc and up to the shops of Col de Villefranche. There is easy bus and train access to nearby Eze, Monaco and Nice and to more distant destinations such as Menton and Antibes.


General: There are regular markets in the nearby villages of Villefranche, Beaulieu and of course Nice has a world renowned fruit and vegetable market and regular antique markets. Nice also has a wealth of museums, art galleries and an excellent opera house. There are the varied attractions from the Menton music festival to the Monaco Grand Prix, to the film festival in Cannes. For those interested in sailing there are regular yachting regattas in Antibes, Cannes and Monaco. Coastal paths from Villefranche through Beaulieu and St Jean, and then around Cap Ferrat provide wonderful scope for most enjoyable walks with lots of world renowned restaurants and bars making pleasant stopovers. In Villefranche itself quayside restaurants mingle with the colours of local fishing boats and nets. Little wonder it continues to be a favourite with so many artists, writers and other discerning aesthetes.

Special Attractions: There are frequent sailing regattas, including some wonderful events bringing together classic yachts from around the world. For those interested in antiques there are around the old port of Nice any number of excellent galleries and markets, and Villefranche hosts a weekly open air antique market on the waterfront. For those who love music there are regular internationally renowned music festivals along the Riviera, and of course there are the special attractions of the Monaco Grand Prix, the Canne Film Festival, and any number of other sporting and cultural events.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      The Cote d'Azur retains all of its long recognised allure, combining modern luxury with belle epoch and old world charm. Steep mountains fall precipitously into deep and enticing azur seas that provide a haven for all forms of watersports and attract yachts of all sizes description. There are safe and clean beaches with splendid restaurants having tables at which you can almost get your feet wet in the gently lapping waves. Mountain and coastal walks provide a wonderful way to explore this region that must still rank as one the most beautiful in Europe. Picturesque Villefranche sur Mer has from the 2nd century BC oscillated between French and Italian control. Its architecture reflects this rich and varied history, as does its culture and cuisine. It has one of the most sheltered natural harbours on the south coast of France and consequently provides a popular stopping off point for visiting cruise ships and shelter for visiting yachtsmen, which is how I first discovered its charm.

                      Other Activities: Provides easy access to the various sporting events, such as the Monaco Grand Prix and sailing regattas, and to a multitude of cultural events.

                      Ski: The alpine ski fields are a relatively short drive North of Nice. Buses run regularly from Central Nice and it is feasible to enjoy daily sortee to the ski slopes.
