“A great holiday location in itself but also a great launching pad to explore Riviera”
Villefranche-sur-Mer is both charming and more tucked away than busier Nice and Monte Carlo. The flat is close to shops, beach and, above all, the railway station. I discovered that (at least in mid-June) there's free (near-Citadel) parking for a person with a car. During our stay the village was not overrun with tourists so there was a sense of real discovery both within the village and on the day-trips taken to places like Nice, St Paul de Vence and Grasse. A more-than-decent selection of dvds awaited us in the flat each evening. We had all the amenities needed to have breakfast before heading off each day. Because we were on holidays we didn't want to cook in the evenings and the restaurants in Villefranche held up for 4 nights in row without any disappointments. The Flat had aircon but we barely needed it. The clothes washing machine did get used once- a blessing. Close enough to 2 good beaches to start/end each day with a swim in the sea.
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.
