Wonderful property in a spectacular locatio
The apartment is fully equipped with everything you are likely to need from just sleeping there to full self-catering. All fixtures and equipment are of a high standard and the building is of an higher level overall. It was still too cold to use the pool but it certainly looks inviting.
The terrace view is spectacular and we could hardly tear our eyes away from it the whole time we were there.
We used buses for all our transportation and there are stops very close by. Figuring out the schedules is another matter altogether! Nevertheless, it is very easy to get into Nice or Bealieu (best for grocery shopping). Recommend bus over train if arriving with luggage as the station is some distance below.
Would recommend this property to anyone holidaying in the Antibes-Monaco area of the Riviera.
Villefranche Dream in November 2012
This was our 4th stay in Rob & Mandy's apartment (which says more than words could say). We spent Thanksgiving week here, and it was a wonderful choice, weather-wise, jackets optional during the day; needed at night, but comfortable. The apartment is so well situated relative to bus stops and the train station, and this time we discovered and used 7-day, 15 Euro bus passes. They don't get you back from Monaco, but allowed us to freely take the bus during our stay. The apartment is an exceptional deal, with a million-dollar view from the deck, comfortable living room, complete kitchen and comfortable bed. We enjoyed excellent meals at La Belle Epoque (right down the hill) and L'Aparte (one block above the waterfront, hidden in an alley). We recommend both restaurants - L'Aparte is more upscale, but both have wonderful food. We are already looking to plan our next trip back and are looking forward to retirement, when we will come for more than a week.
Superb apartment in a superb location
Great quality in every part of the apartment. Fantastic equipment, great cooking, great comfort.
We spent many hours on the terrace soaking up the sun and the views. a stroll down town for dinner, or hop on the bus to Nice, or the train to further afield
We will return to our favourite haven many times we are sure.

A real taste of the Riviera
This apartment and it's location didn't disappoint in any way. We had a weeks holiday at the beginning of November. The weather was fantastic, the views were brilliant and Villefranche Sur Mer is a delightful little coastal town. The apartment is well equipped and well maintained and extremely comfortable for 2. It was very easy to get around (even without a car) We had a very enjoyable stay.
Heaven in France
Fabulous vacation retreat. This rental was exactly how it was described and fully met all our needs. We have stayed in Villefranche before and really needed to come back again. This time our friends could not join us so we needed a place suitable and affordable to 2. This was just the place! The layout was very well done with full on sea, and Cap Ferrat views from living area and bedroom and even a bit from the bathroom looking through the house. The terrace was outstanding and great for a couple of our dinners at 'home' and a few breakfasts too when we weren't running out for Pastries. A steep but quick walk to the main part of town, groceries, a butcher, everything you need. The on-sight host, Maria and her little dog Nui, were very sweet and accommodating. You will fully enjoy this place. It's perfect for a couple and is suitable to add 1 more comfortably. A 4th might be much. Villefranche is heaven. Enjoy!!!
A lovely apartment with amazing views. It was easy to find from the directions given, we made our way by two buses from Nice airport. The bus stops outside the apartment, its also easy and cheap to travel to other resorts along the coast. We ate in most nights, the kitchen has everything you need, we found two small mini-markets in Villefranche and a large supermarket in Monte-Carlo, there are restaurants in Villefranche if required. Thanks to the owners and caretaker, all were very helpful and we will hopefully be booking again for next year.
The picturesque town of Villefranche-sur-Mer slopes down to a beautiful horseshoe bay. Explore the narrow, fascinating streets of the old town which manages to combine French village life with the influx of visitors it enjoys on a year round basis as one of the most scenic spots on the Côte d'Azur.
