We have made lots of local friends, it’s very safe and the location cannot be beaten.

Stephen & Bella purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Stephen & Bella chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

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

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 3 vacations here, the place is wonderful. We always take a limousine from the airport and it cruise's all the way along the sea front of Nice to our apartment it's a wonderful way to arrive at the apartment where we're greeted by our Richard (the housekeeper) a charming smiling Englishman who chose to make the village his home he's always helpful always welcoming. We were given his telephone number for absolutely anything needed encouraged to call him and our 2 setts if keys to the apartment. the apartment is situated excellently for the restaurants, the sea and all amenities, it's fresh very quite and has a lovely outlook definitely a relax feel to it.

You can sleep in the double bed looking out at the stars, you can eat alfresco on the balcony and book a restaurant a simple walk round the corner and there hope to spot a famous face.

The restaurants are wonderful with that no rush service. And YES we saw Sir Elton John who gets onto his pilot boat 50 yards from the apartment with his children and David Walliams also

We also saw Tom Hanks eating at our restaurant - and as our children get so excited we decide to make this there evening purpose they he'd down to the restaurants and book the best celeb spotting tables for our arrival and wait for us down there - it's simply lovely. And the food is wonderful it make a great evening.

Of course you can eat at the apartment as it's surrounded by good local shops and dine on the balcony whilst playing a board game with a bottle of fine wine and the children relaxing watching one of the many DVDs provided and there are fantastic local walks which are plentiful for daytime and evenings walking

Our day times were spent with the children booked at the Club Nautique St Jean Cap Ferrat (this is reachable using the small hoppa bus and takes 10 minuets to reach the club) where the children enjoyed their half day sailing courses while I wait relaxed on the beach at the club for the morning we are also able to walk to The Grand Hotel for afternoon tea (this is a must do) wow what a place! and then catch the hoppa bus back to the apartment for the evening in the meantime my husband enjoys a motorboat hire in the bay or enrolee for a morning of scuba diving

The owner is correct you will be staying in a lovely apartment in the most wonderful location, there is simply no need to travel outside the village and a car isn't necessary but it's a guests choice

I want to stay here!!! More and more.....

Simply charming

  • 5 of 5

The details of the apartment are very accurate from the contents to the location description. It is so well maintained and in an immaculate condition. You are met by the manager ,who fully explains the working of everything and leaves a contact number in case you have any issues. The apartment is so accessible ,for the beach ,shops, train bus and taxis .There are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit all price ranges and diets ,I am vegetarian and can always find choices. The views from the balcony are indeed stunning and it is so lovely ,the market or just the time of day. There is something quite unique about the apartment ,in that you don't feel it is a holiday apartment ,but more of a home ,due to all of the facilities and equipment within. I would really recommend this apartment ,we have stayed there twice now and have just booked up for a third visit.

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.
