From the owner

Occupying almost the entire top floor of an old palace, this magnificent open-plan penthouse is completely unique. It is in the heart of the charming and unspoilt old village of Villefranche-sur-Mer, yet it is quiet, extremely spacious and light, and exudes luxury. Perfect for four people or a couple, but can if necessary accommodate up to six + a baby, by arrangement with the owner.

The large terrace offers a stunning view of what's renowned as one of the most beautiful bays in the entire Mediterranean, while inside the apartment affords the ultimate in comfort: a fully equipped kitchen, spacious lounge and dining areas, a master ensuite with a King size bed, and a family room with two double beds. Both bedrooms have their own shower and toilet facilities and the master ensuite also has a bath. There are sliding doors from the lounge, dining area and master bedroom onto the terrace. The penthouse has excellent Wifi and for longer stays there is a great work space.

An idyllic hideaway yet only moments from the beach, restaurants and shops, public transport and all the great local walks & scenery.

During Covid 19 we will supply hand sanitiser and provide extra cleaning products. For longer stays we will offer extra towels and bedding. The apartment will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each guest.

Owner's reply:
Thank you for your very kind review. We always appreciate the feedback and love it that our guests really enjoy their stay at the penthouse and want to go back! Just to make clear for anyone who doesn't know ...we are a three to four minute walk from the railway station and we do not have any noise only the added convenience of being able to jump aboard and see the cote d'azur so easily..as well as travel direct to Italy. Thank you again for your wonderful words and hopefully we will see you again soon! Kate and Mark
