Great find for a wonderful holiday

The"Petit Tresor" has been my home during November, this lovely apartment has been beautifully modernised and is light and airy with fantastic views from the apartment and balcony towards Monaco, over the bay of Villefranche, Cap Ferrat and beyond. There is a modern well equipped kitchen, lovely bathroom and bedroom with an enormous bed which was very comfortable. I had a constant supply of hot water and independent gas central heating which was perfect as the evenings were rather chilly. The apartment is perfectly situated for the "Institut de Francais" with the front door of the residence being almost opposite the garden gate to the school. The short walk to the beautiful village of Villefranche, local shops and public transport is made easy by taking the lift of the residence down to the parking.

I certainly didn't find the apartment noisy apart from one day when someone was strimming their garden

The "Petit Tresor" was very clean and tidy, the welcome was warm and I highly recommend it for a single or a couple
Owner's Response: We love to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay - it gives us great pleasure to know that like this guest they have felt at home and have been happy. We look forward to having the opportunity of welcome new guests as well as old friends in 2014. We wish you all a Very Happy New Year! See you soon, Mattie x

great views but a little noisy

the views from the property were lovely, however there is a car repair place opposite and it was pretty noisy from 8.30am until 6.00pm. we received a friendly welcome. I would like to suggest a guest book in the apartment as it would be good to get suggestions from other visitors.
The Apartment is small, but adequate for 2 people, would like to have had a small dressing table in the bedroom, and perhaps more lighting, as the bedroom was a little dark.
Kitchen well equipped.
Flowers and wine a nice touch on arrival.
ideal location from the centre, approx. 10 min walk. about 15-20 min walk to the train station.
Owner's Response: We are really surprised to hear that this guest found the apartment noisy. In fact we have returning guests who choose this apartment because of it's quiet location. Please see other reviews from guests which we feel give a more balanced view.

Lovely apartment in a wonderful village

This apartment was my home for four weeks while I studied French at l'Institut de français just across the street. The apartment is charming and comfortable, modern and up-to-date, with lots of light and a wonderful balcony overlooking the harbor in Villefranche. It is well-equipped for cooking and relaxing. For students at l'Institut, it's very well situated since its top story is just across from the lower entrance, while its bottom story (take the elevator) saves the equivalent of climbing up four stories on Villefranche's very hilly streets. The town itself is a treasure, it's very convenient to Nice (and a lovely walk there along the sea if one has time), and Petit Trésor is perfectly placed between the basse corniche and the moyenne corniche. The apartment was very clean and tidy, the welcome was warm, and I highly recommend it for a single or a couple.
Owner's Response: We welcome another great review and look forward to many more happy visitors!

Little Gem

  • Review Submitted: 07-Nov-2012

Petiti Tresor is just that, a little treasure on the hillside of Villefranche-sur-Mer, a special little village where we'd love to settle some day. Thanks, Mattie and Sue, for a wonderful stay during my time at the Institut. Everything felt fresh and new and cozy. You can tell that this apartment is well-loved and very well looked after. I can't imagine a more perfect location for studying at the Institut. The front door of the property is a 10-second walk from the back garden gate. This was a huge gift for me after long days in class, even though I love to walk. Having a parking space is rare, and having an elevator is also not that common. My husband and I loved the terrace with views of the bay, Cap Ferrat, and out over the hills into the Mediterranean. This little home is perfect for 1 or 2 people, with large closets and a good-sized kitchen. Sue was very welcoming, and has a vast array of travel information for the area, plus a wide selection of books. All in all, a comfortable, convenient, enjoyable stay.

Superb Apartment

Our recent stay at Petit Tresor was an absolute delight. Sue's welcome was cordial and inviting: the apartment had been thoroughly cleaned and prepared for our stay, with a well-stocked array of domestic supplies, and Sue was kind enough to wait patiently for us as we navigated the roads through Bastille Day traffic from the airport to Villefranche. As for the apartment itself: it is bright, cheerful, recently renovated, and furnished in the very best of taste, with books, lovely objets d'art, and comfortable furniture, and the layout--a living room extending into a decent-sized kitchen along two sliding glass doors that open to the large deck (and the sweeping view of the bay and sea!) assures cool breezes even on warm days as well as an overall sense of spaciousness. The king-sized bed in the bedroom in the rear was very comfortable, and cooled by a large ceiling fan easily controlled with a remote. We had rented a car, but ultimately we found that we did not need it: a ten-minute walk took us to shops, restaurants, and nearby beach areas, and a three-minute walk took us to the nearby Lignes d'Azur bus stop, where the 100 Bus stops every fifteen minutes or so for short rides into Nice and a bit further in the other direction to Monaco. So--yes--we had a lovely stay, and we highly recommend Petit Tresor for the little treasure that it truly is.

We hope to welcome many more of you in the near future! Mattie

Villefranche is situated 4km from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay from their villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. Nice or Monaco are ten min. away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 min. The village of Eze is 20 min. by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 min. A car is not essential and the walks here are fabulous. There is a parking space with this apartment.. This is the best location on this fabulous coast by far. The French language Institute, Institut Francais, is a few minutes walk away.
