Cosy apartment in the heart of Villefranche!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this charming apartment for 10 days in July. It lays right smack in the middle of Villefranche on the main street. The location is fantastic! The soundproof windows don’t let in the slightest sound when closed, even though the sound of the street is one of our loveliest memories.

Cecile, the owner (with her husband Fred) is one of the most kind, trusting people we have ever met. They were very easygoing and answered swiftly on all our requests. Cecile is a tour guide and gave us great advice as of what to see and where to go.

The apt. is on the second floor up a steep stairway, but it’s worth the climb. A great sea view from the balcony, where we ate breakfast and even dinner. Charming one room apt. for 2/3 people with great air-condition and all you need of equipment. Very clean. No dishwasher though, but that didn’t bother us at all. Extra bedlinen and towels since we were staying 10 days, which we were just to let lay as we left. I can’t boast enough of this young couple and their apartment.

We will visit Villefranche again, and we know exactly where we would like to live again.
