Light, airy and relaxing base for visiting Villefranche and Nice
The apartment is bright and modern with a corner aspect giving views onto gardens and the bay of Villefranche. Clean design with all mod cons and more spacious than the standard P&V accommodation. We didn't even need a car as there are regular buses to Nice. Beaulieu, Monaco and Menton directly outside the complex. The complex itself has a large pool and sunbathing area, and Villefranche beach is 5 mins walking distance. Even good for snorkelling if the tide is right and the water is clear. Nearest big supermarket is in Beaulieu, 15 mins walk or short bus hop.
I am glad that your stay in my apartment was pleased you and I thank you for your appreciation.
I was very happy to welcome you and I hope to have the pleasure of receiving you again.
Great location and very well equipped apartment
The apartment is just as it looks in the pictures. It is very well equipped with very high quality furnishings, it is very clean and everything works well. There isn't any air conditioning, but we stayed through a very hot and humid week and it wasn't a problem - the doors are large and can be left open at night and the residence feels safe and secure. It is a 15 minute stroll to the train station and a few minutes more to town where there are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from. The beach is a few minutes walk away and there is a pool at the residence. The owner was very helpful and answered all our questions, and the agent was very welcoming and helpful too so there is plenty of support if anything goes wrong. There is a fairly hefty deposit to pay, but it is justified by the quality of the fittings - and ours was repaid without any issue on departure. The only downside for us is that there was quite a lot of noise from the road and from the carpark below the apartments. The view, however, goes a long way to compensate, and being on the end means that there is a wide view across the bay to the town. Tall trees prevent an uninterrupted view of the bay, but it is a wonderful outlook and the huge balcony means that it can be enjoyed all the time. Villefranche sur Mer is an interesting town to explore, and the train gives quick and easy access to all the towns along the coast. Would also recommend a visit to the old town of Eze.
Fantastic, beautiful views, excellent location
This apartment is something special. It is beautifully decorated and with stunning views from the terrace, lounge and the bed ! You can lie in bed and see the sea and watch the boats , it's fabulous. The apartment is well equipped and clean and has been very well designed making the most use if of the space. It is in a perfect location 30 mins by taxi from NIce and then walking distance to the beach, restaurants and the old town of Villefranche. It is also perfectly located for walking to Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur mer and easy access to the train station and the bus for visiting Nice, Monaco, Eze etc. If you have a car it also has parking. It is a perfect location. An extra bonus is the pool area which is very pleasant and has lovely views.
I would highly recommend this apartment and the owner was very helpful with all my questions, we will definatley be going back very soon.
Thank you Jocelyne for all your help and making our holiday very special.
The apartment was fantastic,
We loved our stay in the apartment. Being part of a lot of other apartments enabled us to use the other facilities. The pool was wonderful after the morning walking across the bay to the turn of Villefranche. The cafe/bar was very average and could do with some other meals and drinks but that was ok as we cooked in our apartment several nights and dined on the balcony.
Being across the bay 7-10 minutes walking or around to Beaulieu 10 minutes was fantastic because we were close enough to enjoy all the shops, cafés locally, swimming but we didn't have to be amongst all the tourists who come twice a week during the season by cruise boats.One day there was 2 boats.
The apartment complex also had a wonderful service where you could order the day before breakfast croissants or baguettes for the following morning. Yes this apartment and seaside holiday was a highlight of our travels in France

"The apartment was beautifully decorated, clean and had gorgeous views. The facilities were excellent, and the pool was particularly nice. I would certainly recommend the apartment to anyone, and plan on staying there again"

"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment in Villefranche. We highly recommend it and hope to return one day. From our first inquiry, the owner was very communicative, responsive and honest. She answered every nitpicky question I had in the 5 months leading up to my stay.
To begin the apartment is a privately owned and maintained apartment on the second floor of the "Residence Gardien L'Ange." At first, I was nervous since that facility does not have good online reviews at all. However, the owners have recently remodeled and decorated the large studio/one bedroom apartment (the bedroom can be closed off using retractable doors but we left open the whole time) and the apartment is just lovely!
The entire apartment is pristine white and impeccably clean. It is equipped with modern amenities such as a flat-screen TV, stereo, washing machin and stand-up American style shower with great water pressure. There is a small refrigerator, stove-top and toaster oven, but no traditional oven. We had no problem cooking lovely meals at home with this equipment. There is also ample space for storage in the closets and drawers. The bed is an American full-size and quite comfortable. We slept well the entire time.
The view is MAGNIFICENT and we spent most of our time on the very large balcony, which is equipped with a table and four chairs, along with two sling chairs for relaxing. To one side, there is a view of the Plage des Mariniers and Villefranche port, to the other side you can see Cap St. Jean Ferrat.
In terms of location, the apartment is actually located on the Basse Corniche, a bit closer to Beaulieu than Villefranche when driving. We drove the short 5 minute drive to Beaulieu (which has more parking than Villefranche) to go to the supermarket, bakery and butcher. A car is probably a necessity if you stay here, but there is free parking and always spaces.
Through the back parking lot of the facility, it is an easy 6 minute walk to Plage des Mariniers. For dinner, you can walk down to the beach and take a 10 minute longer stroll to the Villefranche Port for dinner. Coming back up, it is uphill but still a nice walk.
The apartment is less than a 10 minute drive to Cap St. Jean Ferrat, 12 minutes to Nice, 20 minutes to Cap D'Ail and 25 minutes to Monaco.
The apartment does not have AC, but with opening all the windows and sliding doors leading to the balcony (basically sleeping al fresco), there is a good ventilation. It was fairly hot when we were there (26-30) and we had no issues. There are mosquitoes and spiders that might come in and visit you though!
Overall, a great and highly recommended apartment."
