LARGE 3 BED WATERFRONT APARTMENT OVERLOOKING PORT... 'THE SEAGULLS'

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer - The Seagulls

3 Double Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This is the best located apartment in Villefranche sur Mer as it has 5 windows overlooking the port and beachfront . It is 70 metres from the restaurants and is very quiet. The apartment is luxuriously decorated with pink marble en suites and an independent large bathroom with a bath overlooking the bay. It is so close to the water that it is like living on a boat ! Each of the 3 bedrooms are large and two are en suite. The main bedroom overlooks the port. There are no stairs to climb as it is entered off Rue Poilu so is suitable for the infirm. At the waterfront it is 2 floors above the cobbled street which is a cul de sac. The area is over 2000 sq. ft. (180 sq. met) and is therefore larger than most houses but is laid out in the best possible way to ensure light floods all rooms. This is an exceptional property .... called ' The Seagulls' . Changeover day Saturday but flexible from october on.

Grew up in Ireland and live between France, Spain and Dublin

Jonathan Aird purchased this apartment in 2007

I bought this property because of the location. It took 8 months work to make it perfect . It traverses Rue Obscure from Rue du Poilu across to the front of the port

Proximity to shops yet in the best part of the most unusual village in France

Elegance by the sea

Just came back from Villefranche - the apartment is fabulous, very bright airy
and comfortable. It is in very traditional French setting with the charm of a
beautiful pedestrianised street to enter the apartment and the sheer beauty of
being less than 10m from the sea on the balconies. It is ultra luxurious and
spacious, just a pity we had to come home. Beds extremely comfortable and
everything needed for an enjoyable time to be found in the cupboards or the
basement.

We hope to return there in the future and would recommend it highly, whatever
the price.

Stunning Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 22-Jun-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
Other reviews are completely accurate - this apartment is amazing. We stayed a week with our two adult daughters, one with her partner. There was ample room for five adults and having three bathrooms was a bonus. Beautifully decorated and well equipped Seagulls is easily the best we have stayed in.
The location can't be bettered, waterfront with views to die for, just a treat waking up and drawing the curtains to see if there was a new cruise ship in the harbour. Restaurants aplenty, bakery and a wee supermarket a few doors away. Everything about our stay was perfect and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to everyone.

Thanks Seagulls!
Owner's Response: Glad you liked it. As a team to manage this apartment and the 3 other villas, these comments keep us going ! Also, some clients find Villefranche
really different as some of the streets are only 2 metres wide.

Seagulls beyond expectations

  • Review Submitted: 07-Jun-2012

Hi Jonathon,

I wanted to thank you for our exceptional accommodations in Villefranche. It was above and beyond our expectations. WE really cant say enough great things about The Seagulls. Everything was perfect, so with that, thank you!!!!!


Also, I may have left some artwork that I purchased while in VilleFranche in the apt. – 3 pieces to be exact, two small water colors and one mid size acrylic piece. Will you please check with your cleaning service to see if they were found, If so, I would be happy to send you my FedEx number so they could be shipped to me?!?

Again, we will all be in touch, as we plan on returning to Villefranche in the future.

Thank you again for the lovely accommodations.

Apartment Seagulls

  • Review Submitted: 26-Feb-2012
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2012
As we approach our last week of study at L'Insitut, and with it, our last week in your Seagulls
Apartment, I wanted to let you know how much we have enjoyed the beautiful, gracious and well-serviced place you have created here.

The apartment is lovely, well-equipped and well-maintained. And your service team--Gaston, his son Emmanuel, and Rada have all been terrific. Thank you.

I would very much like to reserve The Seagulls for next February (or have the right of first refusal,) if that is possible. Could you please advise?

Again, so many thanks for these truly excellent and memorable accommodations in the old town of VIllefranche!

Fantastic Thanksgiving in Cote d'Azur

Fantastic Thanksgiving in Cote d'Azur

  • Review Submitted: 02-Dec-2011
  • Date of Stay: Nov 2011
My wife and I spent 15 fantastic days in Cote d'Azur staying in "The Seagulls" apartment in Villefranche-sur-mer. One thing I can say is that the information describing the apartment is excellent and it lives up to everything said about it. We had friends visit for one of the weeks and it was very comfortable for two couples. It can easily accomodate 3 couples with three bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and the kitchen and living rooms are very large and spacious. The maid is also great!

I rented a car, but one is not needed and a bit of a liability driving in the very narrow streets, also parking can be challenging with large cars. The train station is very convenient and inexpensive, it is definitely the way to go in season. We took the train into Nice (two stops) frequently and also to Ventimiglia, Cannes, Antibes, La Napoule, and elsewhere. The restaurants in Villefranche are quite good, but it is also nice to dine in Nice and elsewhere using the train to avoid needing to worry about your wine intake.

Villefranche sur Mer is situated between Nice and Monte Carlo.... truly one of the world's greatest locations. The train station is 150 metres away and journey times are 7 minutes to the centre of Nice and 17 minutes to Monaco (Monte Carlo). The train will also take you to Italy ( 35 minutes) and San Raphael ( 90 minutes). The A8 motorway is 15 minutes by car. The apartment is in the centre of the Old Town so everything is less than 1 minute away .... bakery, supermarket, restaurants etc. However, the apartment is very quiet.

Other Activities: Local history, whale and dolphin tours, wine tasting
