CHARMING VILLAGE HOUSE WITH TERRACE IN THE OLD TOWN OF VILLEFRANCHE

Villefranche-sur-Mer House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Comfortable Family Home Close To The Shops And Restaurants

The walk along Rue Contesso takes you to the olive tree and benches where the locals meet up to chat before lunch or dinner. From this spot there are but a few steps to buy all your gastronomic needs! The baker, butcher, greengrocer and grocer are nestled around the Place de la Paix with the convenience of a newsagent (selling foreign papers) and a pharmacy.

Our house is in a quiet part of town and is perfect if you are travelling with friends or family and you want to be part of local life yet be only moments from the hub of Villefranche with its many restaurants, shops and cafes. In a few minutes you can be on the beach where there are three cafes serving delicious lunchtime snacks.

There are two double bedrooms and a third bedroom that has two single beds. There is one bathroom with bath, shower and toilet and there is also a separate toilet.

We fell in love with Villefranche 15 years ago and have been going regularly ever since.

Viv Alexander purchased this house in 2002

We couldn't resist the charming courtyard garden which is very rare in the old town.

Situated away from the main tourist area the house is in a very quiet and peaceful part of town yet still near enough to all amenities. Within 100 metres there are two cafes, butcher, baker, grocer, greengrocer, newsagent and pharmacy.

a hidden gem

We had a lovely week here. The apartment is tucked away in one of the picturesque little lanes of Villefranche, quiet but only minutes from shops, restaurants, station and beach. We particularly enjoyed the little patio. It was a lovely spot for a glass of wine or two before dinner. The apartment was clean and well-equipped, with an excellent supply of books. We also appreciated the little square at the end of the lane with its boulanger, butcher and greengrocer and non-tourist café. The restaurant was also worth a visit. I would recommend this to couples who want an interesting, perhaps quirky place to stay where they will feel part of the 'real' Villefranche.

We hired this apartment for a short break to celebrate our parents 50th wedding anniversary. We were delighted with our choice and felt at home straight away.

Near to the restaurants and shops, plus 5 mins walk to back and railway station, this suited us perfectly.

A well equipped kitchen made eating in easy and the bedrooms were very comfy. The linens were very high quality and plenty of plug points in each room.

A well stocked library was welcome and the apartment felt safe and secure at night.

I would recommend this apartment to any family/ group looking for a comfortable stay in VFSM.
Owner's Response: Thank you. We are so pleased you had such a lovely few days with your family.
We hope to welcome you back another time.

This is paradise.

The place is fantastic – very modern and comfortable with good attention to detail to ensure a stress-free stay. The location also couldn’t be better. It’s an almost surreal five-to-ten minute stroll to the beach through winding, cobble-stoned ancient alley-ways which lead you to the crystal clear Mediterranean water and gorgeous pebble beach.

If you want to leave the house at the evening it is located only a couple of minutes’ walk from a plethora of amazing and lively restaurants and bars, but the facilities -- with a modern kitchen, nice patio with a bbq and a small indoor bar – mean staying in is also a treat. The place is stocked with a good range of dvds, books and games, too, which is a nice little touch.

There is absolutely no down-side to this and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
Owner's Response: I'm glad you had such a fabulous holiday and we look forward to welcoming you next year.

We had a great stay in this lovely little house. Excellent location, convenient for restaurants, the beach and station. Comfortably furnished and fully equipped with the bonus of a beautiful private courtyard with BBQ. Would certainly recommend this property and would book again.
Owner's Response: We too love the private courtyard, which is rare in the old town, and have also enjoyed many lazy evenings around the BBQ! We look forward to welcoming you again

The house is really charming and the outside terrace filled with jasmine smells amazing. The location of the house is perfect, it feels part of the town and is only a few minutes walk down through the Old Town to the beach and to the train station. We were met at the property which was easy to find and very well maintained. Villefranche is a lovely town and this house is a great place to stay. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!
Owner's Response: We are so pleased that our house helped make your holiday in Villefranche so enjoyable. We love it too! We look forward to welcoming you to our house again.
