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.
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.
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.
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.
