I will recommend this place to all my friend
Maria from USA May 2013
We were three friends (widows) who traveled to Provence and stayed at this apartment. It was a perfect location, close to everything, 2 nice bakeries, cafe, small grocery store, a woman selling fresh fruit and vegetables several times a week, even fresh fish. . Restaurants galore. and very close to bus stop and train station.
the apartment was very clean (as I am a germ-a-phobe. ) and had everything you needed .
We thought the mattresses were comfortable and quiet neighborhood. One exception was Saturday night, some young teenagers were partying outside our street, but they quieted down around 10pm. No problem.
The only problem we had was how to work the very modern shower and stove top. Be sure to get more instructions from owner. We didn't do any cooking so it wasn't important. Just heated water.
The owner satisfied our every request, and his mother was just as sweet and accomodating, when she met us at the apartment.
We fell in love with her, felt like we knew her all our lives. she even offered to take us to airport, as one of our suitcases was lost. She made us feel at home.
The owner 's mother also gave us a ride to pick up our rental car at the end of our stay, which is something they were not obligated to do.
My suggestion as far as getting there, if you don't want to spend the money on a taxi, is to take the #99 bus or #98 ($6 euros)to the train station in Nice and then take train into Villefranche, a short walk to the apartment, unless someone is ill, or older. We were in our mid 60's. We had a hard time with the suggested route, which was to take #99, then Bus #80 which stops one block away from apartment. However we had a hard time finding the #80 bus, got lost and ended up taking a taxi after all, when someone suggested we take the #30 and got lost.
I will defintely recommend this place to all my friends.
