"We (my wife and I) were able to enjoy the apartment in June 2015 for a week. It was fabulous. The apartment was well furnished with all the requirements. The apartment is located out of the downtown area up on the hill. It was about a 15 minute walk to the beach or the bus stopped right outside the apartment complex. Being out of the downtown area was very quiet and very relaxing but close enough to get to for shopping or dinner. The patio overlooked the Mediterranean where we ate most of our meals. The kitchen was very well equipped. Florence was a great hostess and made sure we had all the information we needed to enjoy the week. We would highly recommend this unit for those wanting to enjoy Nice and the surrounding areas

Modern apartment with old world charm for that special vacation
"Melinda and Jean-Paul have chosen to make their beautiful apartment available in the lovely coastal village of Villefranche-sur-Mer and we couldn't be happier. Excellent, modern amenities and old-world charm combine to provide for the perfect rental in one of the most desirable locations in France. The pictures and description really don't do the apartment justice! The view from the apartment of the harbor and Cap Ferrat are spectacular.
I will agree that Villefranche is not an ideal location for those individuals with mobility issues; there are many steep streets and stairs, and the entrance to the apartment is up another set of steep stairs. But after 2 weeks I really have to say that both me and my wife feel great from all the exercise. There is no need for a car in this area due to the wonderful system of public transportation (buses and trains) that is easily accessible from the apartment. I strongly recommend heading to Nice early in your stay and purchase either a 10-ride or weekly bus pass (the unlimited weekly pass costs only 15€ and is a steal!!). We ranged from Menton to Antibe using the buses and trains exclusively.
The restaurants in Villefranche are excellent, and while we loved l'Oursin Bleu on the waterfront for a very special dinner, our favorite "go-to" choice was La Tavola on Rue de Poilu for delicious and reasonably priced meals. Wonderful bakeries, a butcher shop and a small grocery are all close by if you want to prepare your own meals in the modern and fully equipped kitchen (loved the dishwasher!). And if you love the beach, Villefranche has a lovely one that is only a 5 minute walk from the apartment.
I can truly say that this was our best vacation ever thanks to Melinda and Jean-Paul. Their manager Monique was very attentive always available for advice. I really can't imagine a better location for that very special vacation!!"
