Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

TOWN:

Villefranche-sur-Mer is in a village in the heart of the Cote d'Azur (between Cannes and Monaco). Created in 1295 by Charles II d'Anjou, this village has kept its picturesque charm with the progression of the centuries. The bold colors of Mediterranean-style homes, the small and steep streets, and the lack of cars in the old village will bring to mind times past while offering the finest of modern cuisine, art, and scenic views. Villefranche-sur-Mer is blessed with a Mediterranean climate; mild in winter and very warm in summer.

LOCATION:

Built in 1700 and fully remodeled in 2006, this apartment is in picturesque Villefranche-sur-Mer. This flat is ideal for spending a relaxing week exploring the French Riviera. Artists and writers such as Cocteau, Volti, and Goetz have flocked to this seaside village to be inspired by its scenic views and slower pace of living.

CENTRALLY LOCATED:

From the apartment, it is only a 30-minute drive west to the Nice International Airport and a 30-minute drive east to the Italian border town of Ventimiglia. It is a 15-minute drive/bus/train ride to the city of Nice and 15 minutes to the country of Monaco. The city of Villefranche-sur-Mer is accessible by train and the station is a five-minute walk from the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment in Villefranche was the perfect base for my family's stay in France. Although the building is over 300 years old, the apartment itself has been thoroughly modernised and it is comfortable and quiet. Its location is convenient for walking to the beach and to shops and for catching the bus or train; we never needed to rent a car to visit other towns on the Cote D'Azur. The rent is frankly less than we were paying to stay at our usual rental at the beach on the East Coast of the US, and the surroundings were certainly more interesting and beautiful. Eating meals prepared in our own kitchen saved us a lot of money. I would highly recommend this rental property.

a piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my long suffering husband returned today from a 4 day break in Villefranche sure mer. The photos on the website are very accurate and the place is spotless and excellently furnished. This apartment offers the best of both worlds. Situated close to the waterfront in the old town, it has neither the noise of traffic nor the bluster of the fun and frolics of the great restaurants on the waterfront. Yet, the beach and these same restaurants are just a stones throw away. We landed at Nice airport and gor the 98 bus and 80 bus the V'franche and were 35 minutes in transit. the train station with its magical train ride thru' Cannes, Antibes, Monaco are 3 minutes from your door.

A perfect place for a car-less trip to this wonderful area- without the headache of parking. The owners are really helpful and the whole experience was very pleasant adding to great break away.

Highly recommended!

nice stay

  • 5 of 5

The area is great. The place is spacious. We had 5 people. 4 tall adults/children, 1 child. Everything was lovely. The only issue is the bathroom shower head wasn't perfect, and we were a bit tall for it. The steps leading up are super steep and there are many but it was superb exercise. We had all we needed. We are so glad we were able to stay at this property.

Stayed here for 4 nights with 3 friends. Plenty of space for everyone. Apartment well-equipped with good air-conditioning, and very clean. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, responsive property manager and owner, but strong unpleasant smell at times.

  • 3 of 5

This apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer is in a great location, in the heart of the pedestrian-only historic downtown. Walking distance to everything, but far enough from the center of town so as to be nice and quiet. The manager was there to receive us and check us in to the apartment at our pre-arranged time, and everything went smoothly on that end. The main negative with this apartment was that (during the week we stayed there anyway), there was a strong smell throughout the apartment that made it very difficult at times to be in the apartment. I would say 4 of the days the smell was very bad, the other 3 it wasn't so bad. The manager and owner were very considerate when it was brought to their attention, but it never could be figured out where the smell was coming from, and so it couldn't be fixed. It was a smell like burning rubber. If you are sensitive to strong smells, this could be a problem for you. I personally had quite a bit of difficulty - sneezing, running nose, even a headache one day. Other than that, this apartment met all of our needs, and like I said, is in a wonderful location.

Excellent base for a wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious and brilliantly appointed. It is a short walk to the beach and the cafes, restaurants and shops of beautiful Villefranche sur Mer. We've had a glorious week! Highly recommend and so much character in the old part of the town. Erin ( owner) and Lauretta ( manager ) were delightful to deal with.

Villafrenche is awesome!

  • 4 of 5

Monaco? Nah... Nice? It's..ok. Villafrenche sur-mer? Could not be better!! What a great spot right in between the two big cities. Our accommodations were great. We had 6 adults in this place and we were comfortable. We had mom and dad (in our 50's) and 4 adult children who shared the two queen beds. You better be "fit" to climb the stairs up to the unit though; at is very narrow and steep. Once you are up there, it is great. Lauretta was our property manager and she was super helpful and very responsive. Not only that, she was on time which is very important when waiting for a key. Thanks Lauretta. We would have spent three times as much money in a hotel.

I would have given 5 stars but the staircase knocked it down one.
