A lovely time in Villefranche

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults and two kids aged 7 & 10) just spent a week in Marianne's apartment and we are very pleased! The apartment is located in the old area of Villefranche, with narrow pedestrian streets and no cars. Many restaurants nearby and the beach and train station a five minute walk away. The apartment was in very good condition and had all we could wish for. Both Marianne (owner) and Madame Ferrio (neighbour lady doing check-in, check-out and cleaning) were extremely helpful and kind. We absolutely recommend this apartment! //Rickard & Cecilia (Sweden)

Great spot for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment recently in May 2012. It’s in a great location right in the middle of Villefranche, just a minute or two away from the harbour. The apartment located on the second floor is to the rear of one of the typical old terraced houses in Villefranche. There is a nice view of the rooftops and the surrounding hills from the balcony.

The interior has been recently renovated and all of the facilities, furniture and kitchen equipment looked very new and were really well looked after.

The owner Marianne, is really professional, answers all emails very promptly and is very efficient regarding payment confirmation, queries about the lease etc. During our stay the lady next door was on hand to welcome us when we arrived and she is available to deal with any problems that may arise.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to stay in Villefranche. However I must mention there are quite a few steps. The apartment is on one of the typical streets in the old town which has steps the whole way up and down. It’s downhill when you’re going out and uphill coming back. It’s absolutely fine for most people though, but if you’re elderly or extremely unfit it would be best to visit a town which is more flat.

Villefranche is a great place for a holiday, there are sandy beaches a few minutes walk away, the train station which will bring you to Nice, Monaco, Grasse, Cannes etc is about 5 minutes walk and there are lots of nice walks around the citadel and the old town itself on your doorstep.

Excellent apartment in a very picturesque village

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults and our teenage son) stayed in this apartment for a week in July 2011 and we really enjoyed our stay. We found the apartment lovely, comfortable, clean and well equipped. The location is wonderful, in one of the old streets of Villefranche, near to the beach, shops, restaurants and public transport. We certainly recommend this apartment to others.

Appartement de charme dans le vieux Villefranche

  • 4 of 5

La propriétaire est vraiment très dispo et fait tout pour que le séjour soit agréable, bien qu' elle n habite pas sur place.

La voisine , Danielle, est également charmante et très arrangeante.

Nous avons aimé l emplacement, proche de la plage et des commerces.

À savoir tout de même, la petite chambre enfants n a pas de fenêtre donc il y fait très chaud. Ainsi que la mezzanine avec lit adultes.

Heureusement il y a des ventilateurs mais il manque vraiment une climatisation.

Location au top à tous points de vue

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est encore mieux que la description et s'est révélé idéal pour notre séjour en famille ! De plus, très bien équipé, tant au niveau matériel de maison que pour les enfants (lit bébé, livres, jeux, poussette...). Seul bémol, la location de draps et linge à la blanchisserie plutôt onéreuse (facultative mais tellement plus simple). Nous y reviendrions !

  • 5 of 5

We staid in this apartment during the Easter period.

The flat is clean and with an interesting design. it look old when you arrive by the door but is surpringly modern when you open it.

Mme Danielle supported us in a very polite and discrete way.
