Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a lovely stay. What a wonderful home base to return to after a hard day of exploring and /or lying on the beach. Thank you as well for all of the thoughtful touches – the beach gear in particular. We have added a set of kid friendly “boules” to the lot. We’ll recommend you to our friends and family.

Truly the BEST

  • 5 of 5
This is a 5 star apartment just as you see from all the reviews. My husband and I have rented through VRBO three years in a row -- all European cities. This is by far the best apartment to date. First of all, Muriel and Erin were superb as contact/manager -- everything from rental to departure went smoothly. All needs/questions answered in a timely and cheerful manner. The apartment itself is so comfortable and bright - very clean & modern. Beds are comfortable, air-conditioning a plus on those hot days/nights, kitchen truly amazing with all equipment, condiments and cleaning supplies, living room/kitchen bright with ample seating for dining and relaxing, WIFI works beautifully, TV even has English speaking channels, balcony absolutely great -- spent a lot of time there w/espresso or wine in hand enjoying the view, bathroom clean/modern & hot showers for everyone! The neighborhood is very safe and the trip down the hill or steps is close to bakery, grocery, restaurants, Tourist Office, bus, post office and Wed/Sat/Sun market. Muriel provided EXCELLENT step-by-step instructions for operating washer/dryer, dishwasher, oven, stove, TV & microwave. Here is the bonus -- cool breezes almost always and fireworks on any random night!

We love the charm of Southern France and this location gives you loads of opportunity to take day-trips. The apartment has many maps, brochures, books and bus schedules to plan your day. The gals at the Tourist Office are very friendly and helpful. It is very easy to travel to Eze, Monaco, Antibes, St. Paul de Vence, Vence, Tourettes-sur-loup, Cannes, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Nice, Tende, Ventimillia - Italy, Roquebrune, Cap Ferrat. We went to the flea market in Ventimillia twice -- found some good buys there. I would definitely recommend the 2-hr boat tour from the Villefranche harbor to Monaco & return -- very relaxing and gives you that "lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" as you pass the magnificent yachts that hug the coast. Restaurants/food in the area - delicious!

We will definitely return -- I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to enjoy "home" away from home, the charm of this small city next to the Sea, & the warm & engaging French people. This was our home for a month -- in a word "FANTASTIC."

Great Views, good location, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5
The views from the apartment are amazing; the photos do not do it justice. In the summer evenings you get a great view of the firework displays. The air-conditioning makes the apartment very comfortable at night. The rooms are quite big; bigger than they seem in the photos. We had two teenagers sharing the smaller bedroom but they had plenty of space. We spent a lot of our holiday together in the living room, and the kitchen had everything we needed to eat in. The building is short walk (100metres?) up a steep hill, but is five minutes walk from the bakers and bus stop, ten minutes walk from the Casino supermarket, and fifteen minutes from the restaurants and the beach. We would stay again.

We found the apartment better than the pictures and the write up. The view was fantastic from every window and the apartment had all the modern conveniences. I loved the open bright feel and all the counter space in the kitchen. The location couldn't have been better. Just like the write up says its a five minute walk to the stores and the Insitut de francais. Muriel, the property manager was very quick to remedy any little problem that came up. I would definitely go there again and would recommend it to friends.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We visited Villefranche on a cruise ship several years ago and fell in love with the town. Now, after spending a week in this lovely apartment, we are planning our return. The location is perfect, apartment is lovely, and the view fills your heart with joy and peace. We returned to this comfortable apartment each night after a full day spent wandering the coast of France and the hilly streets of Villefranche. We fixed salads, ate bread and cheese, drank French wine while gazing at the serene "old port" through the windows and from the balcony. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed for a week's vacation. Please be sure to walk to Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to explore the coastal trail and hike the Nietzche Trail to the medieval town of Eze. The views are amazing! Thank you, thank you for a wonderful time spent in Villefranche-su-mer.

Room with a View

My sister and I enjoyed a week in October in this 130 year old villa (modern) apartment.
This third floor flat was well equipped, everything was provided including a washer and dryer. From the small balcony we watched the boats and cruise ships arrive and enjoyed beautiful sunsets after a busy day exploring Old Town Villefranche-sur- Mer. The one euro bus was the best way to explore the surrounding areas, including trips to NIce to visit the Chagall Museum and a cooking class with Rosa Jackson! The reservation and arrival procedures were simple and secure due to Erin and Muriel's thorough and advanced preparation.

Great Apartment and Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We love the house in Villefranche. The view from the balcony is so pretty and the apartment is gorgeous. It has absolutely everything you need in a house including beach toys which was great for our son on our trip down to the beach. It is convenient to town although you will definitely get a workout going from town back up to the house !

Highly recommend and would stay here again.
