l'oranger (previously Le Phare) is a chic and stylish one bedroom apartment located in the heart of Villefranche Old Town overlooking the exquisite bay of Villefranche and includes a secluded private garden/terrace. The apartment comprises 1 bedroom with ensuite shower room/separate wc, fully fitted open plan kitchen and lounge/dining room - all of which are decorated to an impeccably high standard with a classic/contemporary feel and where you can expect to find all of your home comforts. The apartment is situated steps away from an array of shops (bakery, butchers, greengrocers, tabac), restaurants, art galleries and a few minutes gentle stroll to the beautiful beach. The village benefits from a market selling fruit, veg, bread, oil, olives, cheese, herbs and flowers. The position of the apartment and garden/terrace boasts vast amounts of natural sun light perpetuating stunning views over the rade de villefranche sur mer and stretching across the bay to st jean cap ferrat. It is a perfect location for those attending the Institut de Francais.
To reach the apartment you do not need to climb any steep steps as you do with many of the apartments in the Old Town. The apartment has a 'chic' feel about the place, with its white washed walls, colourful soft furnishings, stylish french furniture collection and elegant finishing touches. It has all of the home comforts you would expect and truly feels like a home away from home.
The floors are tiled throughout with travertine stone tiles. Down lights are fitted throughout and upvc windows provide good security and extra warmth when required.
Local artworks adorn the walls which add a touch of class, colour and ambience to the place.
The library collection is ever growing thanks to all our guests and provides a varied read of fiction, non fiction, travel writing and recipe books.
There is a comfy large white double seated sofa, 2 armchairs, coffee table, 32 inch Samsung HD tv, lamps, round dining table, very comfortable dining chairs and suspended ceiling lights for added ambience when dining.
