Although the apartment is great, I must start this review by saying that the best thing about this property is the owner. Deiter is terrific!! Communication prior to our arrival was great. Then Deiter picked us up at the airport and also arranged for a car to handle our overflow of people. On our departure, he arranged all transportation back to the airport.
The apartment is in the heart of Villefranche sur mer on a small plaza next to the church. The day we arrived, there was a May festival in the plaza and we were able to experience the festive activities just outside our door. Last summer I lived in Villefranche for a month so I am familiar with the town. This property is in the middle of everything. Within 5 minutes walking, there is a small store, numerous great restaurants, an awesome boulangerie, a boucherie, a ATM machine, pharmacy, etc. Your are close to the port, the train, the bus, everything. It is a great location for day trips to Italy, Monaco, Nice, Cannes and beyond.The apartment has a wonderful, fully equipped kitchen that includes a dish washer and a clothes washer. There is air-conditioning for the warm days and a great cross draft with the windows and doors open. And, there is a very nice view of the port from the balcony. What a great place! You will love it!
