All of that steps from the seashore, the beach, and with no cars to spoil the moment! The Cocteau Chapel by the water, decorated by Jean Cocteau, the 1500 Citadelle hosting City Hall and the Volti museum, only touring Villefranche sur mer is worth coming ! There is so much to see.

                              Local dairy market, great bakery for croissants and baguette, all you need is in the old town. Train station is nearby and easy to reach Italy, San Remo,the markets,or take a day trip to Cannes or Monaco. Meet Villefranche sur mer, we know you'll fall in love.


                              Manager info

                              Year Purchased: 1995

                              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:
                              The owner has bought this apartment for a family vacation destination, easy to reach and fly too. As all our children grow fast, and want to travel more with their friends, it's appeared to be a good idea to share this magic townhouse with renters. I have to say I litterally fell in love with this house, (and believe me I have seen hundreds of them in the last 20 years working). It's an old fisherman house, with a provence decoration, high ceiling, but with all modern amenities. The square it's located on, is quiet, with the old fountain still running, trees.It just feels like time has stopped. The church is really close, so if you don't like the bells once in while, it's not the place to be. It's so close to everything, shops, the bakery, restaurants, the seashore. It's a little walk down to reach the beach in the summer, but coming back to a fully air con place is just a must !

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              In the heart of the historical Villefranche sur mer, on an old square with trees and a fountain, all the modern amenities, a small balcony in the front on the square, but also a small balcony by the bedrooms, with a view (a little more noisy though), the space, makes it a real gem in Villefranche sur mer for family or friends gatherings.
