Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 2 +pull out sofa)

We bought this beautiful apartment after spending four years renting in the area. My husband grew up nearby, and we are convinced that Villefranche is a unique paradise on the French Riviera because of its small-town, friendly ambiance so close to the wonderful city of Nice.

Our location is ideal, offering spectacular views and unusual quiet in a sought after, old-town location. The Institut de Francais is within walking distance, as is the beach, all shops and restaurants, and very easy access to car, bus and train (just one block from the Place de la Paix,)

The apartment has been perfectly renovated to take advantage of its charming duplex layout, and offers a bedroom, dining area and living room with comfortable sofa, two full baths, full kitchen and a washer/dryer. There is a large flat-screen TV with free access to French channels, iPod and CD player, and telephone with free calls throughout Europe and the US.

About Russell Lecomte

Jean-Paul and Melinda Lecomte

We live in Maine during the summers and beautiful Villefranche in winter.

Russell Lecomte purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Russell Lecomte chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

Jean-Paul grew up in nearby Antibes. We found Villefranche when Melinda attended the Institut Francias and fell in love with the small village and its proximity to Nice

What makes this apartment unique

Villefranche is a 'little paradise.' We have the beach, great restaurants, and the most beautiful view on the Cote d'Azur. Our town still offers a small village ambiance just minutes away from bustling Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Monaco.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful home you enjoy here! Felicitations! The location is superb, the interiors are so pretty, fresh and clean and all is in order. I am sitting at your kitchen bar with a cool drink, watching the boats, listening to French music.

Thank you Melinda! I will take care of your lovely home.

Loved our stay in France!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in Villefranche-sur-Mer and absolutely loved it! The view from the kitchen window of the water was beautiful and we loved the bell chiming from the church steeple. The apartment was located close to the bakery, food shops, train, restaurants and beach. Everything that we needed was either in the apartment or easily within walking distance. We are already planning our next France adventure in the near future!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property with a lovely view and all you could need for your stay. The property was in a lovely quiet spot in the old town but still close to all the amenities. We used the train to travel miles, the station was very near to the apartment and the staff there very helpful when it came to buying a week long pass. Although we were very happy with the property anyone with mobility problems should be aware that the access steps are quite steep.

We had a fantastic holiday in Villefranche, and the apartment was beautiful and very comfortable. It was an excellent base to explorte the Cote d'Azur. Monique was incredibly helpful and we were made to feel very welcome. We will definitely come back and stay when we return to this area. Many thanks for the use of your apartment.

Excellent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing and the location very charming. The flat was clean and met all of our needs. If you are challenged by steep stairs, perhaps another choice would be better. For us, we were thrilled.

Wonderful apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The apartment itself is beautiful - a rare gem that looks as nice in person as it does in the photos. It is well appointed, spotlessly clean, and has a gorgeous view of the water and Cap Ferrat. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the medieval old town and steps from many shops and restaurants. A quick walk to the train station gives easy access to the entire Cote d'Azur. We explored cities and villages up and down the coast, and as nice as they were, we didn't find any as lovely or charming as Villefranche-Sur-Mer. Finally, Monique was extremely warm and helpful at both check-in and check-out.
