Possibly the best apartment in Villefranche. Very large and with a U shaped layout. Built in 1820 and traversing Rue Obscure, dating from the 13th century, entry is off Rue Poilu without any stairs to climb. There is also a basement housing washing facilities etc.

Everything in the apartment is new, with a very high standard of furniture, bedding, curtains, fabrics, flooring etc.The total area is c. 2000 sq. feet making this one of the largest apartment in the Old Town.

The location is unbeatable as it has 5 windows to the front (+ 6 at the back) and there are no stairs to climb. There are 2 balconies to the front. One is fitted with table and chairs. All ceilings are high as it was constructed from 3 old apartments made into one. The main building dates from 1720 and Rue Obscure (underneath) from 13th century.

The basement has a separate entrance for bicycles etc if required. Although the apartment is on the second floor from the port side, the entrance is on ground level from Rue Poilieu, meaning that there are no steps and that this apartment is suitable for the infirm.
