The lovely terrace has a view that is priceless.

The patio doors slide all the way to the wall so that in the summer the outside becomes the inside. Plenty of room to seat six around the table for a dinner party al fresco!

The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region

Villefranche is situated 4kms from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village enjoying discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay as they had a villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. Villefranche also benefits from a micro-climate which means that the suns shines all year round making it perfect for a winter break. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 minutes away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten minutes away or you can be in Italy in 40 minutes. The wonderful village of Eze is 20 minutes by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 minutes. All can be reached by public transport so you can easily be without a car. However, there is parking available nearby. This is the best location on this fabulous coast by far.

Villefranche Sur Mer

The Village itself is full of history and dates back to the 12th century. There are weekly tours around the village and Citadel. The oldest street runs below the apartment. Jean Cocteau is famous was having lived in Villefranche and the chapel was designed by him. He stayed at the Hotel Welcome which is in front of the apartment. There are regular festivals in the Citadel and village celebrations which take place during the year. Each Sunday there is an antique market in the square.

"Wonderful Week in Villefranche Sur Mer"

We had a truly wonderful week. The apartment was perfect for us. We spent time each morning and evening on the balcony enjoying the view.The weather was a little cooler than anticipated, but beautif… More

Lovely to hear from guests and to know they enjoyed their stay in my apartment. Especially when they come out of season as their is so much to enjoy and appreciate at all times during the year. With Villefranche having a micro climate all you need is the sun to warm up the whole bay - you could be on the beach at any time! Hope to see you soon!! Mattie
