Great apartment & location, fantastic owner!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, with 2 teenaged children. The apartment is very clean and nice. The location is very close to restaurants, the waterfront, the train station, bus stop, etc., and has a view of the beautiful harbor. No need for a car. The owner, Dieter, is absolutely awesome - he helped us with our airport transfer, showed us around VSM, was very easy to work with during the rental process, and is really friendly and multi-lingual too. We'd stay at this apartment again, absolutely!

Absolutely PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This four-BR apartment was everything we thought it would be and more. Absolutely beautiful and spacious apartment, wonderful TRUE air-conditioning with units in every room, for perfect climate control, HUGE great room with fantastic kitchen (all up-to-date appliances) and a lovely balcony with a nice view down to the harbor. Dieter was SO helpful, it was incredible. He picked us up at the train station in Villefranche (and brought us back) so that we didn't have to lug our sizeable suitcases through the hilly town. He stocked the fridge with some welcoming beverages and because of some communications SNAFUs, even helped us find groceries on the first day. On the last day, our daughter left her favorite sweater in the apartment, and we could not find it as we were leaving. He later found it and brought it all the way to the train station in NICE, catching us just as our train was getting ready to depart. Truly above and beyond!!

I think what I loved the most about the apartment was that it was thoroughly modern (in pictureque Mediterranean town!), spotlessly clean and absolutely quiet -- definitely a welcomed respite after a week in busy, noisy Paris. I would absolutely stay there again and highly recommend to all my friends.

Thank you Dieter!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5, two adults and three daughters ages16,14 and 8....the accommodation was perfect in so many ways.The location in central VilleFranche was quiet but surrounded by everything needed to make our family vacation enjoyable. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach, great restaurants and bakeries... The location is also perfectly located as a base to tour Nice, Cannes, Monte Carlo etc....The quality of the apartment was superb and the owner Dieter shows pride of ownership in maintaining everything in the apartment at the highest level....thank you Dieter for making our experience in VilleFranche so complete...great memories and we cannot wait to come back!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't ask for a better location. The apartment was right in the center of town where we could easily walk to restaurants, shops, the beach and train station. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had all the necessary amenities. We traveled with 3 small children (6, 3, 2) and 3 adults and the apartment felt very roomy. The children loved playing in the small plaza every morning and evening just steps from the apartment. The one caveat is that the stairs are very steep going from the ground level to the main floor and the main floor to the upstairs. The apartment had 1 baby gate so we just had to be more watchful of the 2 year old. Dieter (the property owner) was phenomenal. He picked us up from the train station, took my husband to the grocery store to stock up for the week, arranged our transportation back to nice and was gracious enough to meet us at a ridiculously early hour to check us out. Thank you Dieter for a wonderful experience!

Outstanding Apartment in the heart of Villefranche

  • 5 of 5

Although the apartment is great, I must start this review by saying that the best thing about this property is the owner. Deiter is terrific!! Communication prior to our arrival was great. Then Deiter picked us up at the airport and also arranged for a car to handle our overflow of people. On our departure, he arranged all transportation back to the airport.

The apartment is in the heart of Villefranche sur mer on a small plaza next to the church. The day we arrived, there was a May festival in the plaza and we were able to experience the festive activities just outside our door. Last summer I lived in Villefranche for a month so I am familiar with the town. This property is in the middle of everything. Within 5 minutes walking, there is a small store, numerous great restaurants, an awesome boulangerie, a boucherie, a ATM machine, pharmacy, etc. Your are close to the port, the train, the bus, everything. It is a great location for day trips to Italy, Monaco, Nice, Cannes and beyond.The apartment has a wonderful, fully equipped kitchen that includes a dish washer and a clothes washer. There is air-conditioning for the warm days and a great cross draft with the windows and doors open. And, there is a very nice view of the port from the balcony. What a great place! You will love it!

Amazing family trip experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property gave us the opportunity to experience the French traditional life for a week!! The property itself is very comfortable inside, with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, etc BUt the most important quality is its location. Walking distance to bakeries, boulangeries and mini markets, as well as exquisite restaurants with excellent food and service, train station, and bus stop , the beach and the pier.

We traveled with small children and their grandparents, and we all had a wonderful experience. For older people be mindful of many steps to the property and a little inside as well.

Dieter and Nicole are excellent hosts, Dieter picked us up at the airport and hired a taxi-van service for us, helped us with train tickets purchase, and even had easter treats for our children and a bottle of wine upon arrival.

We just would say that we hope to be back really soon!!
