The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur / Alpes-Maritimes region
The Cote d`Azur has a long history as one of the most beautful coastal regions in Europe.
It is sophisticated but unpretentious. The scenery is spectacular and the food world renound.
Nice lies at the heart of the Cote d'Azur with Antibes and Cannes to the west and Villefranche sur Mer, Monaco ,Monte Carlo and Menton to the east. The Mediterranean laps against clean, safe beaches and the climate allows for the varied pavement culture of restaurants and markets. The combination of French and Italian influences over the centuries gives the architecture a distinctive quality.
Nestled between Nice to the west and Monte Carlo to the east, Villefranche still retains its medieval characture.
It sits at the base of a natural amphitheatre of mountains and is considered one of the most beautiful
bays and natural deep water harbours in France.
The Villefranche Sur Mer / Port de la Darse area
Throughout history Villefranche has been both French and Italian and is still influenced by both cultures.
With its colourful fishing boats and numerous waterside restaurants there is always something to see.
You can wander the narrow medieval streets of the old town, or jump on one of the frequent trains that run
along the coast. On Fridays take the train just over the border to Ventimillia in Italy, where you can shop for
leather goods, shoes, handbags, knitwear and scarves at one of the regions largest street markets.
Nice, with it's night life, shops and famous Cours Salaya flower market is a 15 minute bus ride away.
For the perfect location, Villefranche ticks all the boxes !

I had a great time at Les Galets D'Or. I used it as a jumping off point to visit Nice and Monte Carlo and it was also a great spot to just be there and visit Villefranche Sur Mer. My biggest regret was that I had only booked for five nights because I was travelling about. This is certainly a place that I would like to go back to at some point. The owner, Chris, was very gracious when I spoke to her on the phone when I was booking the apartment. Everything was clean and tidy and there were helpful pamphlets of some places to see in the area. You realy don't need a car as public transit was timely and affordable.

As soon as you open the door into this apartment you see the most wonderful view out into the bay. The verandah overlooks the bay and it is spectacular. It is a short walk to the citadel and the town. A car is not needed as everything is within a very short walk. Fabulous restaurants, the beach, the shops. Two restaurants are within two minutes walk!!
A fabulous place to sit and watch the people and the boats. Compact apartment but with everything you could possibly need for your stay - including beach mats and seats. There is a lift in the building.

This beautiful apartment in Villefranche, overlooking the old harbor of la Darse, is close to all that the Cote d'Azur has to offer. We have been to Villefranche in all seasons, including autumn and the mild winter, and this location never fails. There is easy access to Nice by car or public transportation and much to discover in this quaint former fishing village on the road to Monaco. Walk from the apartment to beaches or the town center. Have breakfast on the waterfront. The apartment has a modern kitchen and bath and an elevator. But the best part is the view from the apartment and its spacious deck - across the Bay of Villefranche, one of the deepest natural ports anywhere in the Mediterranean, to Cap Ferrat. Once you enter the apartment, the Mediterranean is always with you. And the deck is a great spot to sip Provence's finest while watching the lights come on along the hills and corniches or gazing as yachts and small boats ease their way across the harbor. It's a little bit of heaven.
