And it is: perhaps 30 meter walk from the river wall, with views from the apartment. Pictures are accurate -- the apartments are fully and engagingly decorated, baths are large and functional, and the kitchen is modern and mostly complete, with the use of the lovely gardens. Vuillafans is a small (and shrinking) village a lovely 30 minute drive S. of the Departmental capital of Besancon, with a small grocer, a boulanger, a pharmacy, a bar/cafe, and a small restaurant that serves mostly salads and pizzas (well-reviewed, although we never went there). This lovely location comes with a penalty: it adds 30 minutes to any destination N. or West. "Considerations:" 1. The stairway to the apartment twists slightly, with treads of varying widths; this might be a challenge for your luggage, and perhaps for some guests with stairway difficulties. 2. The radiator heat is tied into the owners' system (below), and it was our impression that heat fell off (not completely) when the owners went off on a weekend holiday; both bathrooms DID have very effective heaters, and the small automatic washing machine did fine. 3. Be prepared: While both bedrooms are attractive, comfortable, and spacious, one has a balcony, attached bathroom, and the only TV, while the other bedroom -- doesn't! (it's private bath is across the hall). So, decide in advance who gets which room, or be prepared to flip a coin.

From the very first time we contacted her to the end of our trip, Katherine was great to work with. We unfortunately speak only a little French, but she was very patient with us and communicated with us mostly in English. Katherine greeted us upon our arrival and made us feel very welcome. It was an added comfort to know that she lives in the building adjacent to the apartment in case we needed anything. We felt very safe with the gated and locked entries into the building. The apartment itself was very comfortable (felt like home), and it worked great for our family of three (our daughter is three years old). Our favorite thing about Katherine's apartment is the location! As soon as you step outside of the building, you are in the heart of the city! This was perfect, because everything we wanted to explore was within walking distance! While my husband was at work, my daughter and I browsed the shops, visited the open-air markets, and played at the parks. Parc Micaud and La Gare d'Eau are beautiful parks just a short 10-15 minute walk away (if you don't want to walk, the tram and bus stops are very convenient, too). Just about anything you might want or need during your stay is less than a 5 minute walk -- laundromat (just down the street!), post office, pharmacy, supermarket, etc. While we loved the location of the apartment, the hustle and bustle in the area did take a little getting used to. There is a training school next to the building, as well as several restaurants/bars, and although the noise wasn't a big disruption, it may be something to consider. (Granted, we come from a small Midwestern town that is much, much smaller than Besançon). My husband has been to Besançon several times before, but this was the first time for my daughter and me. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We absolutely loved making it our home for the few weeks that we were there, and we were very sad to leave. The memories we made during our trip will be cherished forever. We are already looking forward to going back and staying at Katherine's apartment again.
