FAB-U-LOUS !!!!!!

Just returned from our Christmas Holidays spent in this wonderful apartment. This is our 3rd stay here and it is getting harder to leave each time we visit. I could truly live in this beautiful place. The view, oh my goodness is amazing. We spend most of days just sitting on the balcony watching the world go by below us, totally relaxing and de-stressing. We have come to the conclusion, having also walked many streets taking in the view from different angles we believe this apartment cannot be beat, it's so central it's just magic. Anyway, check out my last review, back in 2008 - it's just as perfect now as it was then. Thank you Jim & Patricia for finding this amazing place and sharing it. Best get saving for our return !!
Owner's Response: We are just so pleased to be able to share the apartment with such appreciative guests. It is always good to have people returning to enjoy what we too think is an inspiring location on the Cote d'Azur. So our thanks for taking the time to add these kind words Deborah. Jim and Pat

A very nice apartment with spectacular views, ideal holiday let. Very relaxing location within easy access to the main town of Nice and surrounding areas.
This is a clean well maintained fully equipped apartment, all you would need for a enjoyable relaxing break. We would recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again if available in the future. Really enjoyed relaxing on balcony with a glass of wine looking over the bay.

We stayed in this apartment for a month in April 2013 while attending French language classes at the Institut de Francais in Villefranche. As other reviewers have noted, the apartment has a lovely view over Villefranche and the Mediteranean. It was a pleasure every day to open up the shutters and gaze at the water.

The furnishings in the apartment are basic but comfortable, and the style is modern and relaxed. The kitchen was well-equipped although it could use some new frying pans. The quality of the dishes was very good compared to other rentals we've stayed in. We appreciated the dishwasher and washing machine for our laundry.

The apartment was quiet while we were there, although it was still low season so many of the apartments nearby seemed to be vacant. We walked everywhere (you can even walk to Nice -- it takes about 40 minutes). The buses were convenient but be forewarned that there are no night buses back from Nice except on Thurs-Sat evenings. Bus connections were pretty few and far between at night. You can take easily take the bus to Menton, Monaco, or other coastal towns for only 1 euro. We went on a terrific hike from the hill town of Gorbio to Ste Agnes -- highly recommended if you like to hike. You can also walk from Eze-sur-Mer to Eze Village. It's steep but not difficult if you're in relatively good shape.

The only negatives about the apartment are that (1) the elevator wasn't working a few days, which was a pain on the day we checked out with all our luggage; and (2) the shower is very tiny, and I think it would be difficult for a large person (large in girth, not in height) to maneuver in the shower stall.

In short, we would gladly return, and hope to do so in the years to come.

What a great place to call home after each day of exploring this amazing area! The view is excellent from both the bedroom and living/dining room, the bed is very comfortable, and the apartment quiet. We loved the huge deck and appreciated the convenience of a well-setup kitchen.

The town of Villefranche is safe and quaint. The old town is a photographer's delight with its picturesque narrow streets. Along the waterfront are many excellent restaurants. Don't miss the Citadel with its three excellent (and free) art museums.
We purchased a bus pass (14 euros for one week) with which we could travel to many towns and all over Nice. This area is hilly, so bring walking shoes!

The listing is accurate in its description, the view is great and the location is perfect. Apartment is clean and well-maintained. Customer service was detailed and helpful, 100% recommend for a relaxation type getaway if the Nice is too busy for your taste. Kitchen is full of pots, pans, glasses to cook on your own but there are great restuarants/bars nearby anyway. Easy public transit access to other towns. It is the coast, so be ready for lots of hills and stairs. Didn't want to leave!

The Cote d'Azur retains all of its long recognised allure, combining modern luxury with belle epoch and old world charm. Steep mountains fall precipitously into deep and enticing azur seas that provide a haven for all forms of watersports and attract yachts of all sizes description. There are safe and clean beaches with splendid restaurants having tables at which you can almost get your feet wet in the gently lapping waves. Mountain and coastal walks provide a wonderful way to explore this region that must still rank as one the most beautiful in Europe. Picturesque Villefranche sur Mer has from the 2nd century BC oscillated between French and Italian control. Its architecture reflects this rich and varied history, as does its culture and cuisine. It has one of the most sheltered natural harbours on the south coast of France and consequently provides a popular stopping off point for visiting cruise ships and shelter for visiting yachtsmen, which is how I first discovered its charm.

Other Activities: Provides easy access to the various sporting events, such as the Monaco Grand Prix and sailing regattas, and to a multitude of cultural events.

Ski: The alpine ski fields are a relatively short drive North of Nice. Buses run regularly from Central Nice and it is feasible to enjoy daily sortee to the ski slopes.

The kitchen and bathroom have both been recently modernised to the highest specification. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and access is via locked gates operated by a personalised electronic control. There is parking within the secure and gated grounds and a dedicated lock-up garage within the basement of the apartment block. Probably not the most ideal apartment for young children. Wireless internet is available. While telephone and cable TV can be made available there will be additional charges for having these connected and for the line rentals. These connections would normally only be practical for longer term rentals.
