Villefranche-sur-Mer Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Self catering, parking, air-con, close restaurants, transport and beach

Villa Le Studio is situated just by the heart of the old town of Villefranche Sur Mer, and is a lovely romantic holiday apartment in a building that looks like a little villa. The apartment has been newly and stylishly renovated with large windows that look out on sensational views of the whole bay. There is one double bedroom and another double bedroom on the mezzanine level above the sitting room. Both have king sized beds. The kitchen is fully fitted. There is also a small pretty balcony so that you can sit outside and parking for one car and air con. The street leads from the side of the building straight down to the village which is five minutes away and the sea and beach about a ten minute walk away. Villefranche has great restaurants, wonderful beaches, history and charm on the doorstep. This is without doubt the best location on the Cote D'Azur by far. Sleeps four guests. Perfect for a couple a two children.

Please note the advantage of this apartment is it has it's own parking space which is a real bonus if you are renting a car or driving down.

Just as advertised plus more!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were met by the apartment manager who took so much time to talk through the area and offer us suggestions of things to do, where to eat etc. She was lovely and answered all of our questions. The apartment was perfectly clean and comfortable yet stylish. The view is TO DIE FOR!! I just did not get sick of waking up and looking out the window. It is well located if you are ok with walking back up hill from the town, we found this a good way to walk off all the delicious food and drinks we were consuming so it wasn't too bad. Overall this place was perfect for a weeks holiday and I would return in a second.

Wonderful apartment with a sunning view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The studio is well equipped and very clean. It is in a quite area but a very easy walk to the restaurants etc. We loved villefranche sur mer. The town is really unspoilt, has wonderful restaurants and a beautiful coast line. The view from the studio was fantastic. It was so nice to sit with a drink on the balcony and watch all the boats. Fantastic location. Extremely well equipped and clean. Highly recommended.

Great base for exploring the South of France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa le Studio for a week in the beginning of June. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures posted online and is in excellent condition: luxurious and comfortable. The view from the living room onto the bay is amazing. We couldn't stop looking out the window and saying "We can't believe we're here!" The parking space makes this place an ideal base for exploring the south of France for vacationers with a car. The beach is about a 10-15 walk from the apartment, with the old town being along the way. The kitchen is great for preparing some meals at home and enjoying breakfast on the wonderful balcony. Wifi in the apartment allows you to stay in touch. After spending the day in town, the walk uphill back to the apartment allows you to work off some of the calories from the copious goodies you eat. The walk home up the hill may be a challenge for some, but we found it invigorating. Wonderful place, with easy check-in and out, and great amenities. Would love to come back!

Great place to experience the south of France

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa le Studio for a week in early June. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures posted online. It is luxurious and comfortable. The view from the living room is unbelievable, and we couldn't get enough of gazing out the window or from the wonderful balcony. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing some meals if you get tired of dining out every night. The wifi is nice for keeping in contact with people back home. The old town is only about a 10 minute walk downhill from the apartment, with the beach being another 5 minutes beyond that. Our 2 daugheters loved sleeping in the loft, and our bed was comfortable. The parking space is great for travelers with a car wanting use this as a base to explore the south of France. Monaco, Eze, and Nice are all within a few minutes drive. There are grocery stores close by for getting supplies. The walk back up to the apartment at the end of the day was a welcome challenge for us, but may prove to challenging for travellers who have difficulty walking. A fantastic apartment in a beautiful town. We loved the whole experience and hope to come back. Would definitely recommend to families or couples. Thank you Mattie!

Great place close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with children 14, 11, and 8 years of age. The Villefrance Sur Mer Studio Villa was perfect for us. We are a travelling family and so far this has been one of the nicest rentals yet. We stay at hotels and resorts usually but during this vacation my wife and I both agreed that the Studio was a great choice. We had the space, freedom and comfort you just don't get in hotel rooms. We were on our own and forced to discover the beautiful town.

The Studio Villa was very clean, close to the beautiful (old town) of Villefrance and the beach. We had many bottles of wine on the cute patio overlooking the bay. The kitchen was a perfect size to make breakfast, pack a cooler of lunch for the beach and even made a great dinner for the whole family a couple of times after a long day trip.

We chose to eat out in the old town almost every night because it was so close and you cant beat having dinner outside in an old (200 year +) seaside village. We found the prices not so bad for July. The restaurants down on the water’s edge we pricier than the ones a bit higher from the water. But all the food was very good.

Everything we needed was a walking distance such as markets and bakeries. We rented a car but mainly used it for day trips to Nice, Monaco, Antibes, Cannes and Italy. It was nice knowing that we were returning to our cute hillside apartment in a small town after day trips in bigger cities. The parking spot was a huge benefit. We rarely used the car in Villefrance. Although the beach is a nice close walk, we drove to the beach because as a family of 5 we had towels, umbrellas and coolers packed so it was worth the 5–7 euros for a whole day of parking.

I highly recommend this location for families, couples of any age and anyone that can handle the charming landscape and the romantic sea breeze of and old Mediterranean Town.

Thank you Mattie and also extend a thanks to Norbert he was very nice to deal with.

Nice and Monte Carlo are both ten minutes away and Italy a mere forty minutes drive. Drive into the hills of Eze or Vence which are stunning or the mountains for skiing an hour away. 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 and Villefranche itself is full of history with a Citadel that dates back to the 12th century. Jean Cocteau stayed and is famous for decorating the little fisherman chapel on the quay. Many famous people choose this area to live. Tina Turner has a house in the hills and Elton John has a house close by as does Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.
