                          Villefranche sur Mer historical town is considered a real gem on the French Riviera. From the 1500 Fortress to the Cocteau chapel, all the old medieval pedestrian streets,and the easy access to a long sandy beach with clear waters makes it a real picturesque little French town to visit. Also, besides the few but very very busy streets, you will be amazed to find that if you turn on another street, you can hear the birds sing !If you'd like the crowd,you can have it,lots of shops,restaurants,bars,in the old town and by the water front promenade. Everything is within walking distance. If you'd like to visit Monaco,or cross the Italian border, it will only take 20 min by train. On the other side,you could be in Nice in 15 min. Local open markets, fisherman selling fish in the morning. And all the Mediterranean colors to greet you. The Rue Obscure the blind street is one of the most famous you should not miss. From a romantic stay to family visits and friends getaway, Villefranche has it all.


                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About: My name is Muriel, and I have been a property manager in the area for now over 20 years. Years spent trying to give the maximum service to all my guests, to share my love for the area, and my love for the local people too. Many years ago, I have decided to manage and rent only apartments or villas that I would feel comfortable putting my own family in. To me they need to be spotless, and very very well equiped. Not just 2 skillets and 2 pots for 5 people, or only 4 plates ! A nice reward is when I hear : it's just like the pictures, but my best reward is actually : It's even better than in the pictures ! All the properties are well maintained, I always add little things here and there by listening to our guests comments. Should you need anything during your stay, I can assure that even the impossible is sometimes done to fix anything as fast as possible. Lots of my guests have become friends and come back regularly. I love to travel, and I know how important a vacation is, especially when you come from far away. In each of my properties, you'll find a book with all my little inside tips and information, to find the places to see, or to eat, and live like locals if you'd like ! As a property manager, by Law in France, I have a license, and I have an insurance up to 110 000 euro to protect owners and renters of any problem. To keep my license and my insurance, I am audited once a year. This is your best guarantee that I 'll always work my best to meet you needs and follow my ethic line and standard. I am a the happy mother of 3 great children, a 18 year old and twins 11 years old, the wife of a great man of heart, and an elected city council of my little town Eze where I leave. Should you not know the area, feel free to ask what would be best for you according to your needs, I'll be more than happy to help. Wishing you a very pleasant Villefranche and the Riviera discovery.

                          Why Villefranche-sur-Mer:
                          I have been a property manager on the Riviera for 22 years now, and when my husband and I saw this apartment, we just loved it because of all the windows, the light that was coming in ( I am a little claustrophobic and usually all the places in the odl town are really close to each other). Plus it was a top floor, but no high steps to reach it as it's only 5 steps up to main door. Very high diamond shape ceilings, the perfect display to have a parent ensuite bedroom on one side, with a romantic view on typical old town street and arch, and the children's bedroom on the other side with their own full bathroom, a well sized for the area living space. So we bought it ! We have remodeled it completely and have made it a home away from home. We have used all our experience as a travelling family, to give you all you need to have the perfect vacation, cosy, comfort, and typical. Because this is what we are looking for when we travel. We want the real experience,not only what tourists area offer. And on Rue Baron de Bres, with all the old stones, the locals taking out their chair after dinner to talk a bit, it is the real atmosphere of a southern France village. We would not say the apartment has a sea view even if you can see a little bit of the sea from the bedroom windows on the side. But so you know, when you are down here, you have a sea view all the time : having a coffee at a local café by the water, driving, having a train ride, the Mediterranean is present all the time. Villefranche sur mer is a unique picturesque little town or village. The old historical town, is right by the seashore, lots to do in the summer but also in the winter. Very easy to get around, train, buses, pedestrian area so no cars around. Only 20 mn from Nice International airport, Monaco is just 20 mn's away, Italy is so close. And Villefranche has everything, lots of restaurants, pubs, bars, shops. Very touristy area, but in the heart of the old town, so quiet, time seems to have stopped!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          It's a very short walk to the beach, and to everything, and at the same time, so quiet. Take a coffee or a glass of wine beeing in an historical area is just amazing. Stress is washed away in seconds. But if you want the crowd, well it will just take 1 mn walk to find it !
