"Perfect location for the Cote D'Azur"
We stayed at L'Agrianthe for a week in October. 3 adults and a 2 year old child were accommodated with no problems in comfort. The swimming pool was still available at this time and was a God-s… More

"Beautiful Apartment in a beautiful place!"
We have just returned from a very relaxing fortnight in Villefranche. We have been renting holiday apartments in Europe for several years and can honestly say that this was the most well equipped and by far the cleanest we have stayed in. Jane (the owner) was very efficient and helpful with any questions we had prior to the holiday, the description of the apartment on this site is extremely accurate. Jane and Nigel who manage the apartment were brilliant, and responded amazingly quickly to any queries we had and it was great that they visited halfway through our holiday to change bedlinen and towels and clean the apartment (I think that was a first for us too). I have read the one negative review on this site and struggle to comprehend how anyone could have written that about this property. We hired a car and would definitely recommend it as the buses are really full in high season. The main beach in Villefranche is fine shingle, but if you dig deep you can build a sandcastle! The sea is so clear and the bay was great for children, we all loved the pool in the domain, it was kept very clean and was only ever moderately busy. Thank Jane, Jane and Nigel.

When you book an apartment while looking at pictures online, you never get the true picture of what the place would be. But when we reached VIllefranche and were greeted by Jane and Nigel and were tak… More

"A place to relax"
This is a really good place to relax at after busy days in this busy area. Both Villefranche and the apartment is nice to return to. Parking in Villefranche could be a problem but here you can park inside the apartment area (even if there was not a reserved parking place for this apartment).
The apartment was very clean and as described. The patio has a nice seaview but some other buildings partly block it. There is some noise from the road but the bedrooms are at the back side and are very quiet. The distance to Villefrance center is 10-15 minutes walk (uphill back) and to beach and train station it is more like 20 minutes. Bus to Nice is very easy but they stop going around 8 pm.
The only really negative thing I would say is about the pool area. Clean but very boring.

"A great place to relax and unwind"
A delightful apartment with great views over the bay, a short walk from the centre of Villefranche and with easy access by bus, just outside the apartment and train in the town, to many renown destinations such as Cannes, Nice, Cap Ferrat, Monaco and Menton.
The apartment is spacious, well decorated and provided all the equipment required, we self catered several evenings. Besides a dinning area with seating for six, used during one particularly stormy day, the terrace furniture positively encouraged outside dinning. We had particular fun with the telescope observing small and large boats going about their business in the bay.
Intending to rebook this apartment for a visit 2013 as still much to see in the area.

Every year we search for apartments that are suitable for our finances and for our elderly parents. This is a fantastic place. It has a swimming pool of very good standard, the road is a main road along the coast which is ideal to catch public transport. Yes, you can look at this two ways, fantastic for public transport but busy but it is NOT nosiy and does not affect your sleep. If you want a tranquil place go into a cottage in the mountain away from the coast line, what do you expect on the cote azur???? It is well worth the stay!!!! I will go ther again, fantastic place very good value for money,

"An apartment with beautiful views of the bay"
Having read the damning review from the guest who stayed in Oct I felt I had to leave a review of our experience at the apartment. We found it clean, comfortable and not at all noisy. Yes there is a busy main road outside the complex but the apartment is set far enough back from the road that you really do not notice the road noise. The kitchen is small but quite adequate for a holiday stay and there is a dining table and a patio table so it is not necessary to eat in the kitchen. We stayed at the apartment with my 2 daughters and their 2 friends and there was plenty of room for us to all sit together. Nice big bathroom with good storage...essential with 4 girls and lots of make-up! It didn't say there was wifi so we didn't expect it. Buses stop right outside the complex so the girls found it very easy to travel about...we had travelled down by car but obviously there wasn't room in the car for 6 of us...they had flown down. They also used the train..there is a station in the nearby village/town. It is quite a large village so I wasn't sure whether to call it a village or a town. The apartment has such beautiful views of the bay, often with quite spectacular yachts or ships. It is lovely to sit on the patio and just take in the view. I couldn't stop taking pictures of it! The girls loved the pool which is communal but was not busy at all when we went. The apartment has the best of both worlds really, it is quiet on the complex but you only have to walk down into the village for a bit of life....there are shops and some very nice restaurants there. I would warn you that it is very hilly so for people with difficulties walking you would need to take a car down to park at the bottom of the hill and parking can be difficulty at times there. Lots to see and do in the area. Nice and Monaco are both accessible by train or bus..we drove in but it is extremely busy on the roads. All in all I can highly recommend this apartment, it is situated on the best part of the complex; right at the front with no other buildings obstructing the beautiful views, accessible by bus or train so a car isn't necessary and you can choose if you want peace and quiet or a livelier time in the village nearby. When I say lively I don't mean night club lively...if you want night clubs you need to travel to Nice.

"Most unclean apartment ever been too..."
Despite the fact that the arrangement with the owner over the phone and later via email seemed to have run through well, the disappointment was dismaying. The apartment was the most unclean I have eve… More
I am very sorry to hear that the guest felt the apartment was unclean.
I have only ever received positive feedback from guests and return visits so this incident is very surprising.
I immediately organised to have the apartment re-cleaned but unfortunately the guest preferred to leave.
The apartment is cleaned by a team of two people and the linen is professionally laundered after every visit. I have never received any criticism about cleanliness in the past.
The residence is very quiet. There is a main road, however, the building is set back from the road with a very well maintained garden in front and from the patio there is the wonderful view of the bay. The bedrooms are at the back of the apartment.
Regarding WiFi we indeed do not have WiFi and I don't state that we provide it.
However, I will certainly look into the possibility of providing WiFi in the future.
I welcome all feedback and strive to ensure that all guests have a wonderful holiday.
