This is our second visit to Villefranche and we plan to go again. The owner was exceptionally easy and professional to deal with in making the booking and during and after our two week stay. This was one of six apartments we used this visit to France and it was certainly amongst the best. The apartment contained everything we needed, was very comfortable and you could'nt find a better location in Villefranche, just a few steps from shops and restaurants, in particular a small boulangerie which opens early for fresh baguettes. Villefranche itself is central to all attractions from Cannes to Menton and provides quick access to village such as St Paul de Vence, Eze and La Turbie. We would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again. It offers exceptional value for this location.

"Lovely apartment in a beautiful town."
This apartment is lovely and full of authentic charm. It was great to eat breakfast on the balcony and watch the street below. We were a bit daunted at first as there are quite a lot of stairs up to the apartment, but we soon got used to them. This may make the apartment unsuitable for those with young children or mobility problems.
Having said that, it was a lovely and comfortable base for our holiday on the French Riviera. Everything that you could need (shops, restaurants, beach) is very close and it's only a 10 minute walk to the station. The apartment had everything we needed (including a washing machine) and there is a great selection of DVDs if you fancy staying in! It was unseasonably hot during our stay so having air conditioning in the apartment was great. The owners have also included lots of information and guides about the local area which was a really lovely touch.

"Great location - easy access to waterfront, town, and train"
The flat is just a few metres away from waterfront restaurants and shops, and a 10 minute walk to the train station and the town.
The accommodation is perfect for a family or two couples to share with two bedrooms, separate kitchen, and washing machine.
Great value even during high season.
