Close To Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This apartment on the edge of old town Villefranche-Sur-Mer, has the most unbelievable view. The location is excellent, two minutes to restaurants and a little further to the beach. Ten minute walk to train station, and to the town with access to busses to Nice and beyond, and Menton/Monaco. The apartment itself is a delight outfitted with everything you would need for a most comfortable stay. Highly recommend for two people, or three if you are good friends!

Breathtaking views from the apartment and balcony.

  • 4 of 5

We holidayed one week in The Diana Place and loved every minute of our visit. This was our third visit to Villefranche and the apartment although small is very well maintained and professionally supported by an excellent owner and manager. I would have to say the best experience to date. The apartment has all the amenities and is perfectly located in a secure apartment building near the markets, sea shore, and rail station. The views from the apartment and balcony are breathtaking and we never tired of it. I would highly recommend Diana Place.

a perfect holliday

  • 5 of 5

I spent with my husband the most beautiful holliday in Villefranche (2 weeks), a true jewel of the Riviera. Very pretty old town, with its authentic unspoiled french charm; and It's the perfect place for any kind of taste: you look for a relaxing time - you have it, it's not crowded, but full of life, everything is clean, very good quality restaurants all around, people are nice, helpful and service oriented. If you want more excitement, well, Villefranche is the perfect base to explore Monaco, Cannes, the whole riviera with all its attractions, it's very easy and comfortable (and cheap) to use the public transportation (bussess, train), if not renting a car. The old fort hosts old kinds of cultural events, exhibitions, concerts, the city is full of life in the evening and the sight of the bay is just magificent. And all those restaurants by the water are amazing.

The apartment has a perfect location, 2 minutes walk from the Marina, all shops and restaurants, very close to all the "happening", but not in the middle of it, to (be disturbed by noise etc); the view from the balcony is much more spectacular than you can see in the pictures of the add, is really fantastic. And you have it all in the apartment, anything you need (you can cook if you want, there is even a grill, etc), including beach stuff. Very much appreciated the internet as well, worked very well. The apt is clean, just enough space, looks fresh, it's a joy to start the morning on the balcony with coffee and croissant :) (which you can buy fresh from the market right behind the bldg). Again, the apt looks better than in the the pictures and feels very hommy.

We were lucky on Saturday to discover quite close (next to the turist office) a farm market - fresh products from the producers: cheese, all kind of meat, fish fruits, just amazing!!! (got a huge piece of caviar! :)

The beach is very nice, not too big, but it's fine, it's not "sandy - sand", but it's very fine pebble, it's pleasant to walk barefoot; the water is not too deep, it's perfect for small kids. There are cruises also organised : ask at the port.

I would recommend visiting also the places around: Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu, Eze etc - they are all really pretty and nice, things to see (e.g. famous Ephrusci villa etc), but I would always prefer to stay in Villefranche, I just fell in love with this place, it has it all for me and we'll definitely come back.

Thank you, Alex and Sandra!

Dina Palace, Ave Sadi Carnot

  • 4 of 5

The position of the apt. is superb - about five minutes walk to the harbour. Although the walk back is uphill, we walked up a slope and managed it fairly easily ( we are all over seventy ). We ate every meal on the balcony, enjoying the wonderful view.!

The manager was waiting for us when we arrived and a contact telephone number was provided. When leaving we were able to use the apt. until departure time.

The apt. is perfect for a couple. There were three of us and at times we could have done with a little more space. I would recommend it as suitable for all ages and would rent it again if we return to Villefranche.

Thank you very much for making nice holiday possible!

Although we were quite late with our decision making was so glad to get such a nice spot with such short notice and reasonable price.

Location is fantastic, dedicated parking is very handy.

The bell on the Church we thought would be be a problem at the first day but after a day or two it was so handy (especially while having breakfast on the balkony in the mornings). Fantastic views (all the fireworks are right there for the spectacular viewing). Walking distance to the downtown and port and the beach and to the bakery and the "fruitery" (mind the hills and stairs though :) ). Could do without the car if wouldn't have plans for travel alongside the coast (Nice, Antibes, Cap Ferrat, Monaco etc). Min-isupermarket (Spar) is just next door, for better (and cheaper) shopping used Carefour (in Nice, 15 min drive) and U (in Boulie-Sur-Mer, 15 min drive). Restaurants (sea front) are fantastic (not cheap though but what do you expect you are in THAT AREA :) )

So much history in that little town. We had fantastic holiday!

Had loads of photos and happy to share if anyone interested.

Thank you very much!

p.s.

(Fishing in the morning or in the evening is fantastic too).
