'Le Phare' is a chic south facing apartment located in the heart of Villefranche Old Town overlooking the exquisite bay of Villefranche and fronts onto a peaceful and charming square. The apartment comprises 1 bedroom, bathroom, fully fitted open plan kitchen and lounge/dining room - all of which are decorated to an impeccably high standard with a classic/contemporary feel and where you can expect to find all of your home comforts. The apartment is situated steps away from an array of shops (bakery, butchers, greengrocers, tabac), restaurants, art galleries and a few minutes gentle stroll to the beautiful beach. The village benefits from a market selling fruit, veg, bread, oil, olives, cheese, herbs and flowers. The position of the apartment boasts vast amounts of natural sun light perpetuating stunning views over the terracotta roof tops stretching across the bay to the lighthouse on the headland of Cap Ferrat. It is a perfect location for those attending the Institut de Francais.
The apartment has a 'boutique/shabby chic' feel about the place, with its white washed walls, colourful soft furnishings, stylish french furniture collection and elegant finishing touches. It has all of the home comforts you would expect and truly feels like a home away from home.
The floors are tiled throughout with terracotta floor tiles apart from the bathroom which has slate tiled flooring. Down lights are fitted throughout and upvc windows provide good security and extra warmth when required.
Local artworks adorn the walls which add a touch of class, colour and ambience to the place.
The library collection is ever growing thanks to all our guests and provides a varied read of fiction, non fiction, travel writing and recipe books.
There is a comfy large white double seated sofa, 32 inch Samsung HD tv, white round dining table, four white very comfortable dining chairs, tall reading lamp, together with small lamps. Additional seating and storage is provided by a wooden chest which is strategically positioned by the window so you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst reading a book or simply enjoying the view over the rooftops to the glistening Mediterranean.
The kitchen is fitted in a traditional provencal style with natural oak doors, which contrast perfectly with the large wooden beams that straddle through the apartment. The work surfaces are tiled and perfectly match the provencal theme. The appliances consist of an electric ceramic hobb, electric fan assisted oven and extractor fan.
