About the property

Villa in Villefranche, French Riviera (Cote D Azur), France

Villa Sol is a beautiful and sophisticated old villa in excellent condition. It offers a southerly panoramic view over the bay of Villefranche and is 1 mile from Cap Ferrat. The villa has been completely renovated to the absolute highest standard.The villa is within easy walk to the port (4 minutes) without having to cross any roads. The villa is extremely central while also maintaining the utmost in privacy and tranquillity. It is probably one of the best villas on the Cote d'Azur. The villa was originally built in 1880, and offers the beautiful Belle Epoque features of that period, moreover it is only 100 metres from the beach!There is a guest quarters at the side and a guardian's house at the other side. This villa is perfect for entertaining as it can cater for up to 50 guests. The views over the bay are astonishing and it gets sun all day.Each bedroom in the main house is of an equal size with the same views and have walk in dressing areas with en-suite bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has an office area. Villefranche is ideally located between Monaco (Monte Carlo) and Nice.The villa is located 7 kilometers from Nice and is on the sea beside Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur Mer. It is central and convenient, only 90 metres from the beach or train station and a 4 minute walk to the port. It is ideal for children. A car is not necessary except for heavy grocery shopping.

Monte Carlo is a 15 minute drive away from the villa. This is probably the best part of the Cote D'Azur . Villefranche is a historic village and the Old Town is very unusual with streets only 2 metres wide in places.

Guide to the Cote d'Azur, Cap Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer

The Cote d'Azur is the area of south-east France that runs along the coast from Bandol, west of Toulon, to Menton and the Italian border in the east. Part of the coast is also known as the French Riviera. The Cote d'Azur therefore includes the southern edges of the Var and Riviera departments. The Mediterranean coast (Cote d'Azur / Riviera) of south-east France includes such renowned resorts as Nice, Antibes, Saint-Tropez and Cannes. Rich, exclusive and sophisticated.The coastline here is very beautiful and the weather is more consistently sunny than any other part of France (Corsica excepted). There are many small villages and towns along the coast and slightly inland where you will want to stop and explore.Cap Ferrat is a peninsula into the Mediterranean just south of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Most of the peninsula is home to the very wealthy. Apart from walking along the (very beautiful) coast from St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, there are a couple of other reasons why you should visit. The first is the zoo and extensive parkland surrounding Les Cedres, the original villa to be built on the island (by King Leopold II)The second is the Musee Ephrussi de Rothschild. Stunning even among the other villas in the area, the Villa of Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild (the 'Villa Ile de France') was built in the early part of the 20th century.Both outside in the meticulously maintained gardens (separated into several parts, each with a different theme), and in the lavish interior of the villa, there are plenty of 'oooh' and 'aaah' moments as you come across yet more extraordinary items of art, furniture etc.Villefranche-sur-Mer is in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Cote d'Azur, close to the French border with Italy and 5 km from Nice.The town is built on terraces up the hill that overlooks the azure blue sea and beautiful bay of the Mediterranean below. The town has been occupied since roman times, and there are some older buildings to be seen - you can't miss the 16th century citadel, the large walled building next to the water below the old town that is now home to a number of museums.The big attraction in Villefranche-sur-Mer - seaside, harbour and beach apart - is the attractive old town with beautiful ancient houses lining the steep cobbled streets that wind up through the town.One interesting feature that reminds you that you are in an ancient town - the streets that run along the hill (rather than up and down) pass through arches under the houses, creating a great atmosphere - the best known is called Rue Obscura.There are also a couple of churches of interest eg Chapel Saint Pierre, featuring decoration by Cocteau, in the Villefranche-sur-Mer old town, before you ascend to the Mont Alban Fort for great views out across the sea and along the coast.Perhaps equally interesting are the villas and 'palaces' of the rich and famous tucked away in the hills around the town.
