Overall this apartment was great! It was a family trip so the four of us stayed comfortably. The location was to die for! Great view of the water, so close to all the restaurants and shops and a five minute walk to the train station that could either take you east to Monaco or west to Cannes! My favourite part was how close we were to the beach which isn't too overwhelming with people when we were there. We stayed 10 days but did a side trip to Germany to visit family so I think we may have missed all the action that weekend. The apartment is above a hip/trendy restaurant and they play nice music but be aware in the summer since the place does not have air conditioning you will hear the music a lot louder than we did. Since we were there at the beginning of May we were able to close the windows at night. The apartment is built into a rock face so you can definitely feel the humidity but otherwise everything in the apartment was great! The staff a Riviera Homes were fantastic and always responded to our questions immediately. So overall if you don't mind the music from the restaurant which does stop at around 11:00pm - Midnight and can deal with the fact that the two bedrooms are only separated by wood sliding doors this place is for you!!!!
I stayed in this apartment in June 2011 with my 5 sisters as a family get-together to celebrate my 50th birthday. We're spread out across 2 continents, so just wanted somewhere easy to get to in terms of flights, which was near to the sea / beach and places to visit.
The location was perfect! Short bus and train journey from Nice International airport - only took about 20 minutes and cost about 3 Euros. 10 minutes walk from the train station at Villefranche sur Mer and you're at the apartment, right on the sea-front.
The apartment was great, just what we wanted. It's quirky - built into the ancient stone of the medieval old town - and has a great open plan space downstairs, The whole apartment is just as described on the website - what you see is what you get and it's perfect for a group who is happy to just 'muck in together' and has no real need for their own privacy. The facilities were good and perfectly met our needs. Bed linen and towels were clean and plentiful. We opened up the 2 bedrooms upstairs and made them into 1 big space to suit us better. The bedroom mezzanine is open to the space below, so if you want real bedroom privacy and are in a group, it's not for you.
The apartment is above the Beluga bar & restaurant and to access it, you have to walk through the terrace of the restaurant. The staff there are very friendly and didn't seem to mind us trouping through with all our beach stuff / shopping bags! The restaurant plays music throughout the day/evening until about midnight but this didn't bother us, as we didn't plan on having any early nights...
Each evening, we would sit on the apartment's terrace just above the restaurant and enjoy the lovely view, eachother's company, the local wine and the music. Perfect!
The only problem was the mosquitoes, which seemed to particularly like me and one of my sisters! But even though we were covered in bites, it didn't stop us enjoying our week's holiday.
Villlefranche sur Mer is a beautiful place and the old town is lovely to walk around, day and night. Public transport in the area is excellent and low cost, and you can easily reach lots of places to visit using the local trains and buses, e.g. it's only 15 minutes on the train to Monaco - Monte Carlo.
I would definitely recommend this apartment.
This apartment is in a fantastic location in the beautiful historic town of Villefranche Sur Mer. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is within a short walking distance, Beach, bars, restaurants. Should you want to travel further afield there is no real need for a car as the train station is within a 5 minute walk and the service is cheap and reliable. Only 5 minutes to Nice Ville, 15 minutes to Monaco!
The apartment is well furnished and spacious downstairs with lovely views out onto the bay just yards away. Although Air Conditioning is not available, sleeping in the heat was not a problem with the fans provided. Small downside is the adjoining bedrooms on the upper floor which are separated with a sliding door.
WIFI feature was easy to use and certainly a bonus on the one occasion we had rain!
We booked only a month before travelling but the service we received was 1st class - we were accommodated for an early arrival and provided with a driver to transfer us and given this was our 1st visit a real help in getting to the apartment. The price of transfer was a lot cheaper than using airport taxis.
The apartment is directly above The Beluga Bar & Restauarant whose owners are very friendly. They made an effort to make us feel welcome and even invited us to a promotion evening! - they are also mindful that noise could be a problem and therefore ensure music is not too loud and does not go on after 12. For us, we found sitting on the small balcony adjoining the apartment and listening to the music with a glass of wine quite relaxing - it's certainly not the disco variety but much more easy listening.
The description in the advert is very accurate and the apartment was very clean and generally well maintained (a couple of door handles missing and wobbly chairs but thats being too picky) and I'd have no hesitation of recommending this to friends & family.
The choice of restaurants is fantastic and will cater for most budgets - we ate at the Cosmo restuarant a couple of times which was reasonable value and very good food & service.
We'll definitely return to Villefranche Sur Mer.
Villefranche is situated 4kms from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. The train which is 7 minutes away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten minutes away or you can be in Italy in 40 minutes. Drive into the hills and visit Eze or St Paul de Vence. Antibes and Cannes are within easy reach. This area has so much to offer from art, history, luxury and indulgence - whatever your taste. Villefranche old town dates back to the 12th century and is full of history and good places to eat plus a wonderful beach and sea to swim in. This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places in the world.
