About Victoria

We came here in the year 2000 to escape the dreary climate in England and have never looked back!

The summers are hot and the winters mild, the sky always seems to be blue!

Victoria purchased this villa in 2000

Why Victoria chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

We chose the location of this Villa for its spectacular views and proximity to the beach, without being actually on the coast road where it can get busy and noisy in the season.

The town and beach are fabulous, one of the most beautiful on the Cote d'Azur, but It's also nice to get away from all the activity and sit in peace by the pool or in the garden and listen to the birds.

The motorway is only 5 minutes drive and the nearby "Grande Cornish" (you've seen its great views in many movies) is so convenient for zooming into Monaco, 20 minutes or so, and on to the Italian border at Menton only about another 15 minutes.

The Villa is also special, as it has been set up as two apartments, so there are two lounges and two Kitchens, we even have two separate internet connections.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, we had the most wonderful stay at the Villa, spotlessly clean, beautiful layout, the views were breath-taking, as was the pool.

Looking forward to coming back.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from villa Sunsong and I cannot wait to go back. The pool was immaculate and the perfect size for the family. The outdoor space was spectacular with breathtaking views over the bay. The entire villa was spotless and elegantly designed. A huge thank you to Elektra and Victor for your warm and helpful welcome.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends in early March, during the horrible blast of cold weather from the East. Despite the weather being not so good at the start of the week, the villa was still really good to be in, although we would have loved to use the pool. As the sun appeared later in the week, the terrace was a fantastic place to enjoy the better weather. The villa was well equipped and very tastefully decorated. Victoria, the owner, was very relaxed about everything and left us alone to enjoy the property and genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. In summary, a great place to stay in a great location with a lovely owner, who also returned our deposit in a very timely manner without the need to even call her. Thank you Victoria for being the perfect host.

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with my two young children recently stayed at the villa and had the most wonderful time. The pool and grounds were just perfect for the children. The terrace has breathtaking views and we were able to spend long evenings sitting under the stars whilst the children were safely fast asleep. The apartment was spotlessly clean with elegant furnishings and space to relax. We were so comfortable we rarely ventured out but when we did the owner was lovely and gave us recommendations for places to go and eat. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to this apartment again. It really is a hidden treasure.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Villa Sunsong in April from the 14th-21st 2012 and as we numbered only 3 - hubby, baby and me - I invited my best friend from my schooldays to bring her family - who numbered 4 - to spend the week with us. That we were able to live in the same villa, yet separately, was perfect for us as we were able to breakfast and dine together as and when we wanted due to there being all the requirements in both of the apartments.

The villa was lovely with it's cool marble floors and the big pool was a great hit with the children and we all loved the view from the sun loungers. The villa was perfectly located as we could pop over to San Remo in Italy, where I have always wanted to go and it's a mere 40 mins away.

On arrival at the villa, we were met by the owners manageress who couldn't do enough for us. She showed us where everything was from the baby highchair to extra china in case we needed more! She was very kind and helpful and I got the impression that I could call her anytime, had I needed to. We will defiantly be back to stay next year.

Great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful stay! ough when you look it up and go there the first time, it appears a bit far away because of several slopes in the mountain. However, with a rental car, this is the perfect location to explore the Cote-d-Azur and have a great view over the sea. The swimming pool we only saw from the window as it was December and very cold. But at least we were able to imagine the beautiful views you have from the spacious terrace. All amenities including technical issues like TV for kids or Internet were in a perfect up-to-date-state and the heaters, once turned on for the first night, are sufficient to heat the house in the winter time. The furniture are provencal and very clean, also is everything els in the villa. The villa is located very close to Nice, only 15 minutes drive or even shorter, so are Monaco and Eze. We were there on my mother's birthday and my brother and family came to visit the lower apartment as a surprise. For two families who come there together to have a joint stay, the villa is perfect. As the pool is located on the one side of the upper appartment only,to rent only one appartment in summer time is not recommendable.

Elektra and her husband are total stars! They looked after the villa during our stay and were always there on the phone or in person to help us out with what question we had soever. And they were so charming and helpful, which is very important as you do not have a reception desk like in the hotel. With their friendly welcome and their round the clock hospitality, you never had the feeling to disturb if you had any silly question about the house. And they even prepared a tour guide what and how to make excursions from the house that beats every lonely planet. Altogether, I would always recommend the villa and would be happy to stay there again! thx a lot, Susanne

Villefranche & Beaulieu sur mer
Car: recommended

The Villa is located above the coast, between Nice and Monaco, perfectly placed for exploring the whole coastline. It is a 20 minute drive to Monaco a little further to the Italian border. Less than 10 minutes to the three most exclusive bays of Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu sur Mer and Villefranche sur Mer. The lovely coastal train can be picked up in either Beaulieu or Villefranche which will take you into Italy via Monaco or to Cannes via Nice. There are buses five minutes away also restaurants within walking distance.

Villefranche sur mer is one of the most attractive bays on the Riviera, it has a long beach with nearby parking, many waterside restaurants, marina and port with boat hire and boat trips along the coast.

A great place to stay for the Monaco F1 grand Prix, Tennis tournament or yacht show. There is a large aquarium and all the designer fashion outlets in Monaco as well as the famous Casino and Marina. Nearby Nice has many old Churches, Art galleries and Museums to visit as well as a daily market and the famous Promenade des Anglais.
