“Perfect cosy studio flat in the centre of La Flotte” We had a wonderful stay in Sue's beautiful studio flat in La Flotte. After visiting the island last summer we were determined to come back and explore again and Studio Des Ormes was the perfect base.
The flat is in a fantastic location, about a minute away from the beautiful harbour front of la Flotte and the delicious bakery, food market and lovely cheese store (all great places for picnic food).
The flat is well equipped with all the necessities you need for a comfortable stay. It even has a place to store your bikes after a day cycling round the island.
Sue was a great help- quick to respond to any queries we had and a great source of things to do in the area (restaurants etc.).
Would definitely recommend and return!
“Comfortable, value for money rental in good location” Clean, comfortable and for a studio, very spacious and bright. Wonderful view over harbour from balcony which enjoys sun until late afternoon. Supermarket, bars and restaurants just next door.
Quite a lot of steps and a steep hill to and from harbour and town so I would not consider it suitable for people with restricted mobility.
“Great place to stay” Friendly welcome from Lisa who was very knowledgeable on where to go on our first visit. Very modern and well thought out apartment. High spec. and everything we could need for our break was provided. Great location, stunning views and looking forward to many more visits.

“excellent value for money” By sheer coincidence we stayed in this apartment 16 years ago (1997). The apartment has had (what we guess to be) a partial refurbishment - kitchen and partly bathroom. So much of it was as we remembered it. As holiday accomodation goes it is perfectly adequate and the cooking facilities, etc are similarly just what is needed.
To breakfast, luncheon or dine on the balcony overlooking the sea with the hot sun nicely shaded by the trees, and admiring glances and comments from fellow holiday makers, especially from guests off cruise ships, as they pass by is a wonderful feeling. Almost like the Queen feels on the balcony at Buck House I would guess!
For two or even three people the apartment is a great base for exploring the Cote d'Azur especially as the railway station is only 5 minutes walk away. In Villefranche there are plenty of lovely restaurants and bars, plus supermarkets, bakers, etc for self-catering.
We have been to Villefranche on a number of occasions - since 'discovering' it about 30 years ago and I cannot say a bad word about it. In fact I describe it to friends as 'the most beautiful place in the world':
In conclusion I would say the apartment is not perfect - nothing is, but it's great value for money and I would recommend it.
“ideal base for exploring the costa del sol” The description of the accommodation from the owner was very accurate.
Even towards the end of the season the accommodation was clean and tidy
