Villefranche sur Mer is an ancient medieval village with very small streets. Situated near Nice and Cap Ferrat right in the heart of the Cote d'Azur, it is considered by many as the most beautiful village in France. The Port, the Old Town and the citadel all date back to 130 BC . Rue Obscure is a street unchanged for the last 600 years. The house is ideal for children as it is very safe and has a playground in the side garden with swings, slide etc.
Villefranche beachfront: Villefranche is situated between Monaco (Monte Carlo) and Nice ... This is considered the best part of the Cote d'Azur. The villa is also a 3 minute drive to Cap Ferrat or Beaulieu. The station is a 2 minute walk from the villa and the train travels all along the coast to Italy or back to San Tropez. There is no noise from the train. For more pictures of the villa and pool see owner's website www.airdnet.com

Guestbook comments from the manager
This was villa to beat the lot.... great views, lovely main beds, astonishing kitchen and last but not least, great help from management when my laptop did not work with the WiFi. The children loved the pool and the beach was so close we could hear the waves. It was worth coming all the way from Taiwan for..... highly recommended if you want a magical location .
