Very spacious (80 sq meters), with well-proportioned, high ceiling rooms and all facilities. Consisting of an office (should you really need to work!), living/dining room (with an extendable dining table that comfortably seats six), generously equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, dressing room and two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and opens onto a sun filled balcony with views over one of the old town’s character filled streets. The second bedroom, up an interesting set of stairs (mind your head if very tall) consists of two single beds and a very comfortable single futon. So the accommodation is able to holiday five people with immense ease. It has its own private entrance off one of the prettiest streets in the old town. Indeed, we think that it would be very difficult to find another property that gives such a total immersion into the real Villefranche whilst offering a similar level of convenience.
The apartment as a base is one thing, but what of Villefranche and what else/where else is there?
Villefranche itself is wonderful. Ten minutes from the exciting city of Nice but in so many ways, another world. The Medieval old town, the beautiful sandy beach, the port, the historic Citadel, the Jean Cocteau decorated San Pierre chapel, the incredible walks and the relaxed pace of life all combine to offer a real holiday experience.
You want more? Take the train as it continues down the coast on one of the most scenic routes you can travel, through Eze, Monte Carlo, Menton and on down into Italy and the lovely market town of Ventimiglia. Or go the other way and explore Cannes, Antibes and St Tropez. Determined to hire a car? Then Grasse and all of Provence await. Golf? try Monaco or Cannes area and again be captivated by the views and the quality. We offer a comprehensive pack that describes what do and where to go in much greater detail and is a combination of our own and others’ area knowledge! (Thanks due to all who have contributed to this and please feel free to email your own thoughts on your return from what will no doubt not be your last trip here).
The bedrooms are bright, spacious and sun filled and offer the opportunity of being greeted each morning by the rising sun. The Queen size bed in the master bedroom is extremely comfortable. The second bedroom has two luxurious single beds and a deluxe futon that is as comfortable as can be. The master bedroom has built in wardrobes. The second bedroom has a separate dressing room offering extra space to read and relax. They are both as practical as they are pleasant....moreless

Located on one of the prettiest bays on the Riviera, Villefranche is excellently situated on the sea, has myriad beautiful walks, a tremendous sense of living history and yet is only 10 minutes travel from Nice and all of its charms. The ‘old town’ is one of the gems of the South of France and this apartment really lets you live the experience. 100 metres from the bay, a short walk from the restaurants, shops, bars and railway station; yet in a world of tranquility with it's own ground floor entrance off the beautiful sun dappled lane that is Rue Baron de Bres.
