Located in one of the prettiest towns on the Côte d'Azur, yet within close proximity to Nice and Monte Carlo, this refurbished 60m2 (internal area) apartment's benefits include a large 25m2 (external area) direct sea facing terrace, swimming pool, private parking, air conditioning and resident caretaker. The beach, old town shops and restaurants, railway station and bus stop are all within 10 minutes downhill walking distance. Great care has been taken to refurbish the entire apartment to a luxurious standard. The finish, including fixtures, fittings and furnishings, is meticulous. Linen, towels and heating are also provided.
Location: Catch the train at Nice St. Augustin Station (10 minutes walk from the airport) and travel only 3 short stops to Villefranche-sur-Mer. From the station, a flight of steps will take you directly down to the beach and a 10 minute walk uphill will bring you to the apartment. In fact, easy walking distance to the railway station provides the possibility of travelling the length of the picturesque Cote d'Azur from Menton near the Italian border, visiting Monaco, Nice, Antibes, Juan Le Pins, Cannes and Théoule-sur-Mer. Alternatively, take the airport bus to the central depot in Nice. From there, travel by bus
(Menton/Ventimiglia) for 15 minutes through stunning scenery, alighting at the apartment. Car hire from the airport is available by arrangement and the easiest route to the apartment is to follow the Bay des Anges to Nice Port then proceed along the Basse Corniche past the centre of Villefranche, finding the well sign-posted Les Restanques some 300 metres further on the right.
