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.

In a few minutes you can be on the beach where there are three cafes serving delicious lunchtime snacks.

About Viv Alexander

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

Viv Alexander purchased this house in 2002

Why Viv Alexander chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

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

What makes this house unique

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 lovely house in a very special part of the world

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lovely week in this very special house in beautiful Villefrance. Everything we could have needed was provided and we felt welcome and comfortable with Donna the local agent on hand if we needed anything.
Enjoyed the beautiful sunshine and beaches which we could walk to, as well as having a bus trip to Cap Ferrat and a train ride to Monte Carlo.
Local shops were close by on foot and had everything we needed, there were also numerous excellent restaurants in the town.
We had driven down and since free parking was tricky to find we didn't use the car once we had parked it for fear of having to use a very pricey car park if we weren't able to find another space; think that this is only an issue in very high season and it wasn't a problem since public transport is excellent.

La Vie Est Belle!

  • 5 of 5
Our family loved this small village home in the old village of Villefranche. Up a steep little street (yes, you'll get a workout and will burn off calories from that great baguette) you'll find this well-loved house nestled among the historic buildings on a lovely walking street. Best of all was the exquisite enclosed garden where we gathered every evening with friends. The kitchen was well-equipped and modern, as was the spacious bathroom downstairs. Another bonus was the lovely agent, Donna, who greeted us warmly and provided everything we could have asked.This home was the perfect retreat for settling in and feeling like a local.

a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5
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.

Cosy, comfy home from home in VFSM

  • 5 of 5
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.

This is paradise.

  • 5 of 5
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.
