Overview

Villefranche-sur-Mer Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom apartment sleeps 4 in old town over the bay and by the beach

This eighth floor apartment is located by the waterfront overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The large terrace and amazing views, as well as the location, make this the perfect apartment for your vacation in Villefranche sur Mer. You can marvel at the stunning 180 degree view of the bay of Villefranche - taking in both the old town and sweeping round to Cap Ferrat. If you can steal yourself away from the terrace, you can enjoy the sea view from the living/dining room and open the master bedroom windows onto the sea. Even the guest bedroom and kitchen have lovely views of the cliffs at the back of the building. There is a lift to the eighth floor, which is unusual for Villefranche, and the apartment is quiet. The galley designed kitchen has views out onto the sparkling Mediterranean. You will be inspired to concoct a Mediterranean banquet. It comes fully equipped with an oven, four-ring hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and American fridge freezer with ice machine.

The apartment is fully air conditioned.

Best view in Villefranche

  • 5 of 5

Too often French apartments seem to equate cramped and inconvenient with quaint and authentic, but from the moment you walk in, Les Flots Bleus is open and welcoming. It is light and airy, the view is superb,and the sofas are so-o-o- comfortable. The kitchen is a good size and incredibly well-equipped, and the bathroom, while small, is very functional particularly with the separate loo. After 3 weeks of suffering various shower-in-bath combinations in other locations, the huge shower was an unexpected bonus that we just loved.

Villefranche itself is a lovely village and a great centre for exploring this end of the Riviera from Nice to Monaco, and of course the location right by the railway station is very convenient, and surprisingly not at all noisy. We spent a lot of time just hanging out on the lovely balcony watching the world go by from 8 storeys up.

All in all a beautiful, newly-renovated apartment, comfortable and well-maintained. We would love to come back again.

Owner's Response: Last year a great effort was made to re-decorate and rearrange the bathroom and it is paying off as guests are loving the apartment and are really happy. This in turn makes us happy and delighted. It also means that we have total confidence that new guests will feel the same way. We look forward to welcoming you. This is also a great apartment for getting away from the winter gloom as Villefranche has a wonderful micro climate... See the stats as Villefranche is known for having loads of sunshine in the winter as well as the summer. See you soon! Mattie

Amazing Flat in the Quaint Town of Villefranche-Sur-Mer

  • 5 of 5

Where should I begin with this place? In a word - incredible! I stayed for a week in September and could not ask for anything more. Tucked in the small village of Villefranche-Sur-Mer this two bedroom condo is the perfect getaway gem! The condo is equipped with a modern kitchen and two great sized bedrooms. But it is the surrounding area that makes this place truly special. The flat is situated high up on the 8th floor, allowing for breathtaking views as you watch the sunrise while enjoying your coffee or sip on a glass of wine to watch the evening sunset. The beach is literally steps away - just across a one way street. The town of Villefranche is exactly what I was looking for; a quaint and secluded beach town but with plenty of cafes, amazing restaurants and bars. In addition, there is some unique and great history in this small village.

What made the place even better was all the small little villages within hiking distance or a short train ride away. If you are up a hike, the town of Eze offers stunning views of the Mediterranean. Walking out to Cap Ferrat places you on the very edge of the French coastline. Additionally, the principality of Monaco with the historic Monte Carlo casino and Grand Prix race is only 2 short train stops away!

And to top it all off the weather was absolutely perfect; making the evening glass of wine and artisan cheese taste all the better! Cannot say enough this place and cannot wait to come back!

Owner's Response: This is simply great. It is everything we have worked for and the owner has worked for to create Les Flots Bleus as a welcoming base to enjoy all that this wonderful area has to offer. We love welcoming our guests any time of year. Villefranche benefits from a micro climate which is why traditionally it has been a destination for winter travellers as well as spring and summer. I look forward to many more happy visitors. Warm wishes, Mattie

Should we share this info?

  • 5 of 5

Loved this apt and hope to return so almost hate to rave about it for fear it will not be available again. It was our fourth stay on the Côte and our best. One must do his due diligence in choosing a flat for a month's stay off season. It must be comfortable for those not so nice days when you choose to be indoors. Les Flots was certainly that...both on sunny days and cloudy days.First off Mattie was very pleasant and obliging in answering all our many questions prior to booking.Thankyou. Sue met us and was efficient in pointing out the amenities and workings of the apt. Aside from returning our security deposit, there was no ongoing contact.The high rise bldg is well kept with an elevator.Hurrah! It is wonderfully situated close to the train station and the beach.This proved to be a major bonus! Owing to previous experiences with apts, we chose one that would not involve 'hikes' up and down.Again perfect location. Now the apt...fell in love at once. No issues...clean, bright, airey, well appointed and uncluttered with a spacious feel. A good working kitchen...imperative when staying a month.Good shower, water pressure lots of hot water. Comfy bed, nice linens, fluffy towels.Needed extra sheets for a months stay but that has been addressed for the future.All those things by themselves say 'home' but the biggest feature at Les Flots is the drop-dead gorgeous view from the expansive balcony. Unobstructed and sweeping. We ate lunch there and sipped rosé almost everyday. It was hard to pull ourselves away. This apt is a gem! One of our best rental properties ever.

Les Flots Bleus

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this apartment many times. It has always been a perfect delight. Marvelous views of the sea, sunrise over Cap Ferrat, sunbathers and swimmers enjoying the beach -- and there is more -- A train will take you to Monaco in 20 minutes or to Nice, Antibes, Cannes in the other direction. As I said -- A Perfect Delight!!

Wonderful apt overlooking the bay in Villefranche

  • 5 of 5

Villefranche is a delightful little town just a few kilometers from Nice which has the attraction of being abit off the beaten path but still near many wonderful attractions.This apartment is ideally located with a sweeping view of the bay. The kitchen has been recently updated and is a pleasure to cook in, all the rooms are comfortable and spacious and beautifully decorated. There is only one loo so most suitable for a group which is comfortable with that arrangement. I wish I could live there!

Villefranche is situated 4km from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains its charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village discovering its wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60s the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay from their villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains its authentic feeling. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 1 minute away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten mins away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 mins. The village of Eze is 20 mins by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 mins. A car is not essential and the walks here are fabulous. There is parking nearby. This is the best location on this fabulous coast by far. The French language School, Institute Francais, is a 20 minute walk away.
