Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 2 +pull out sofa)
We bought this beautiful apartment after spending four years renting in the area. My husband grew up nearby, and we are convinced that Villefranche is a unique paradise on the French Riviera because of its small-town, friendly ambiance so close to the wonderful city of Nice.
Our location is ideal, offering spectacular views and unusual quiet in a sought after, old-town location. The Institut de Francais is within walking distance, as is the beach, all shops and restaurants, and very easy access to car, bus and train (just one block from the Place de la Paix,)
The apartment has been perfectly renovated to take advantage of its charming duplex layout, and offers a bedroom, dining area and living room with comfortable sofa, two full baths, full kitchen and a washer/dryer. There is a large flat-screen TV with free access to French channels, iPod and CD player, and telephone with free calls throughout Europe and the US.

The Perfact Apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer 🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷
The apartment is perfect in the heart of Vieille Villefranche. It is modern and has everything that guests need! It’s very clean and comfortable near a boulangerie, a boucherie, a pharmacie and excellent restaurants. And the view of the sea is spectacular!
Thank you Schelly. We’re happy that you loved your visit to our home in Villefranche-sur-Mer.
Beautiful view. Clean. Spacious. 2 bathrooms one with comfy tub.
Monique was excellent at showing us the town and answering all our questions. Kind personable women.
It really is 'le petit paradis'
I had the pleasure of spending the month of April in this wonderful apartment. For me, it was everything I had anticipated. Amazing views, fabulous location in the old town, extremely well appointed appliances and elegant decor. The bed is comfortable, and the linens are top notch. I was too busy to do much cooking but if I had wanted to, the kitchen was prepped for it. While there are many stairs leading to the apartment and stairs to the bedroom, they are not daunting if you take it slow and think about how great your 'fitbit' will look at the end of the day.
I cannot say enough good things about this rental and I am already counting down the days until my return ( and I listen to the recordings of the church bells that sound from the church behind the apartment).
A little gem in the old town of Villefranche sur M
This is our first stay in this charming apartment but it won't be our last. It is situated in the heart of the old town and has everything you could possibly need, and more. It was spotlessly clean, with wonderful furnishings. There is a view through to the bay and has excellent wifi/internet connection. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
5 Wonderful Winter Weeks
I spent five weeks, from the beginning of February, in your beautiful Villefranche apartment. Whatever the weather, I loved sitting with my morning coffee (or afternoon glass of rosé) at the counter in front of the window looking down over the tiled rooftops to the waters of Villefranche Bay below. On rainy days I was cozy and warm -- and very much appreciated the clothes dryer, which is not at all common in "old town" homes. The apartment is every bit as pretty as shown in the photographs and it was spotlessly clean. Monique, who greeted me at Place de la Paix and showed me to the apartment, could not have been more charming and helpful. When I contacted her a couple of times for something I wanted for the kitchen, she responded immediately. The location is ideal -- just steps to Marie-Claire's for wonderful bread and croissants; or to Bertrand, the green grocer. Also, it's only a short walk to either the train or the famous 100 bus, to take you up and down the coast.
I would recommend this apartment to my friends and family and would happily return. Oh -- and most important -- the bed is the most comfortable I have ever found. Thank you for this memorable stay in the charming old town of Villefranche-sur-Mer.
Perfectly located and absolutely lovely studio
It was an absolutely lovely studio. Not only was it well situated with a beautiful view, the apartment was perfectly well equipped with everything needed for our stay in Villefranche. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. Another positive aspect was how well the property manager communicated with us before and during our stay. I would definitely stay there again.
We're very happy that you loved your stay at our apartment in Villefranche.
