Should you wish to learn French we are perfectly situated close to The INSTITUT DE FRANÇAIS in Villefranche, offers a 2- to 4- week French immersion language course for professional adults and mature students who want to acquire rapidly fluency in French. Founded in 1969, its aim is to develop a natural speaking ability by using a unique concept, the “Total Approach”, which combines the most effective audio-visual methods with practice and real-life sessions in a “French-only” speaking environment.

In this renowned French language school, by diversifying the students’ activities throughout the day, all possible approaches to learning to speak French are explored. Thus, the students are constantly stimulated and able to apply themselves to learning the language both analytically and instinctively.

Nothing can equal or compare with this intensive “Total Approach” to French, especially when applied in an all-day immersion and under the incentive of small group interaction.

Indeed, in this world-famous setting, providing innumerable cultural and sport activities, all ingredients exist, at the Institut de Français, to make learning French in France a rich and memorable experience.

We fell in love with the location of this apartment.

We have made lots of friends here its very safe and the location cannot be beaten.

Stephen & Bella purchased this apartment in 2008

Location is just fantastic, Rustic French charm

We chose the apartment location very carefully as we wanted to easily reach it from Nice airport. The location in the village makes easy walking to the beach, restaurants, shops harbour and public transport all easy. The train station in the village takes you to all of France and Italy. The village is 14th Century with a wonderful rustic French ambiance

Would love to stay there again sometime

  • 5 of 5
We all very much enjoyed staying at the apartment. The apartment was exactly as described. Clean, quiet,bright, comfortable and well equipped. Fab outlook from the balcony. Absolutely perfect for attending the Institut de Francais and perfectly situated for a few minute walk into Villefranche and public transportation to Nice and other towns along the Riviera. The owner Bella was super – helpful, friendly, available if anything needed. Would love to stay there again sometime

Very well located

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is very well located within easy walking distance to all amenities for travel, dining, shopping and the beach. It is lovely comfortably furnished very clean and well maintained with a well equipped kitchen if you want to cook in rather than eating out. There is a wi-fi connection which was really convenient for e.mail communications, bus times etc. and also satellite TV, DVD player and a music centre. Villefranche is a wonderful place to visit and the apartment was a great as a base to enjoy what it has to offer placed as it is in the centre of the old town. Would be delighted to recommend the property which is a credit to the owners and the service they provide.

This spacious apartment in the heart of Villefranc

  • 4 of 5
This spacious apartment in the heart of Villefranche was our home for 2 weeks in late February and early March. The owners have done a marvellous job of making it efficient, cosy and homey with a touch of charm so we felt we were definitely away from Canada. The white colour scheme with red and orange accents is so refreshing, particularly at this time of the year
Freshly renovated with a very comfortable beds in the master bedroom; bathroom with shower, hairdryer, all linens; skylights and clothes washing machine, all the comforts of home are provided. Television, WiFi and even a small library is included!

The modern well equipped kitchen was super for making meals for those times when we refrained from visiting the superb restaurants that were just steps away from this wonderful central location. L’Aparte, Les Garcons, Le Serre and Cosmos were within a few minutes of our front door and served fresh, consistently good meals. Small markets, a local butcher, wonderful pastry shops, bars and cafes are short walks from the apartment. The train station is a 5 minute walk, as is the bus to Menton or Nice and beyond.

Larger supermarkets are located on the main routes and easily reached on foot or by bus. On Saturdays the local fresh produce, flower, condiments and meat market convenes in the park and the same location hosts a ‘brocante’ market on Sundays specializing in art, antiques, fine linens and silverware. The Tourist Bureau is steps from the park near a pharmacy, money machines, and more good eateries such as Restaurant Raffaello.

The apartment was very quiet for sleeping being located in the best section of Villefranche. You start to realize that people have been enjoying this street and these buildings for hundreds of years and it does not take long to get caught up in the charm of this place. Villefranche is still a working fishing village and this we saw daily in our frequent strolls to the bay. This was our second trip to Villefranche and we hope to return to the town and this apartment soon. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to our friends.

The apartment was 5 star

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved the ambience of the apartment also of Villefranche sur mer. There were so many beautiful corners of the town to explore and it catered for every need from great restaurants, beautiful views and interesting history. Nothing was too much trouble for Richard and transactions were simple and efficient. Loved everything about our stay. Perfect !

The apartment was 5 star ! Tastefully furnished with every modern convenience, broadband, TV, dvd player. We stayed for one month and the owner had thought of everything to make you feel at home. Its just a 2 minutes walk to the sea front with numerous restaurants to choose from but if you want to cook at home the local shops are on your door- step and the kitchen has every appliance. Local transport is within easy reach but the old town has limited parking but I believe thats the south of France in general

The location is perfect, apartment is lovely.

  • 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.
We returned to this comfortable apartment each night after a full day spent wandering the coast of France and the old streets of Villefranche. We fixed salads, ate bread and cheese, drank French wine while gazing 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
