Hosted by EamonAsk a question
Eileen and I live in Ireland, north of Dublin. As we are in our mid seventies, retired and our family grown-up we lead a less stressful life and enjoy hill walking and travel. We visit Villefranche three to four times a year thanks to Ryan Air!!! We have always loved holidaying in France, having taken many 'gite' holidays with the children. We love their food, their life style, the brightness / light of the South of France and particularly the friendliness of the Nicoise.
Why Eamon chose Villefranche-sur-Mer
In 2005 we were fortunate in buying 'Eclat de Couleur'. We chose this apartment because of its wonderful Sea View Terrace and its location being close to restaurants, shops and bus stops in the Old Town of Villefranche and being on the Cote d'Azur. It is bright and airy. The terrace is a wonderful sun trap with the enchanting colours of the Bay, the Terracotta of the Old Town roofs against the pine forests of the Cap Ferrat. It has an excellent location being a five minute walk to the shops, restaurants and bus stop and ten minutes to the sandy beach. A bus every fifteen minutes to Nice or Monaco at 1,50€ per trip gives you excellent opportunities for day trips.
What makes this Apartment unique
The central location of this apartment allows us to holiday without a car, choosing instead public transport for day trips along the coast or inland exploring the valleys of Maritime Provence. Buses are cheap, clean and frequent. The apartment is a great base for day-trips. Popular trips are Monaco, Nice for shopping, art galleries, Promenade des Anglais, the Old Town and Flower Market. Further afield there is St Paul de Vence for art, Cannes and its Croisette, Ventimiglia and San Remo (Italy) for their market A walk to Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild for its villa, formal gardens and fountains, not forgetting a coffee and a choice of the best gateaux on the Cote d'Azur is always worthwhile. Being avid hill walkers we love to head off on the bus up to the hills behind Nice, La Turbie or Menton. On Summer evenings another favourite is to grab the swimming gear, pick up a bottle of wine and a pizza and head for the beach and enjoy the setting sun over Mont Albion and the waves lapping the sea shore. During the Winter season we have enjoyed classical concerts and an opera from the varied programs in Nice, Monaco and Cannes.
