6 BEDROOM VILLA OVERLOOKING BEACH OF VILLEFRANCHE

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer - Villa Soleia

6 Bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps 13, lots of room

Detached villa overlooking the bay of Villefranche. Belle Epoque style built in 1890 . Stunning views with a sunny disposition on a quiet road. The villa has been totally restored with no expense spared and is fitted out to the highest standard. Situated very close to the village . It is a 90 metre walk to the beach and seafront restaurants are a 3 minute walk. The train is a short walk . This is one of the best villas on the whole coast as it is in a quiet location with world class views.

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

Village of Villefranche sur Mer : The port can be reached with a 4 minute walk along lane way so it is safe for children. The villa faces south so gets the sun all day..... hence the name Villa Soleia !

Owner has a great team of people for clients use..... driving, catering, babysitting, advice, medical etc. More photos on

owner's website www.airdnet.com

Location: This villa is definitely one of the best located on the whole Cote d'Azur

About Jonathan Aird

Owner restored this property in 2005 and has been renting it ever since

Jonathan Aird purchased this villa in 2003

Why Jonathan Aird chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

Probably the best villa in Villefranche because of the location ..... Great views, sunny, 100 metres to beach and easy walk to port / restaurants / shops

What makes this villa unique

Belle Epoque style villa with guest quarters and great on-site management to deal with all the small issues while on holiday (Medical, dentist, boat hire etc)!

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 .

Comments from Owner Guestbook

Jonathan... On behalf of our entire family, I would like to thank you ever so much for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful villa.  It exceeded our every expectation and helped make our vacation so memorable.  We truly loved staying in Villafranche.  It was so much more relaxing than some of the other cities, and so close to everything.  We loved the easy access to the train, the lovely beach, and the wonderful restaurants.  I'm pretty sure me tried all of them.  The views from your villa are some of the most spectacular we have ever seen and will stay with us forever. The grounds around your villa were so lovely and the flowers were just starting to bloom, I imagine it is even more lovely when all are in bloom.  Thank you again for the lovely stay.  We would highly recommend it to anyone.   Doug, Karen, Marc and Sara Brouillette ( Canada )

Car: not necessary

The villa is located 7 kilometers from Nice and is on the sea beside Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur Mer. It is central and convenient..... only 90 metres from the beach or train station and a 4 minute walk to the port. Ideal for children. A car is not necessary except for heavy grocery shopping. Monte Carlo is a 15 minute drive. This is probably the best part of the Cote D'Azur . Villefranche is a historic village and the Old Town is very unusual with streets only 2 metres wide in places.

(For further information or to check the website, please, do not hesitate to contact the owner of the property).
