This luxury apartment, Cactus Roc is situated in the most beautiful part of the Cote d'Azur. The view from the picture window of the bay of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat is probably the best in Europe. The apartment complex is small, secluded and calm. There is a private swimming pool and the beach is about a 15minute walk. The lounge area is large and spacious with a picture window/door running the whole length of the room and affording a breath taking view. The windows can be opened onto the terrace which also runs the whole length of the room. The garden terrace has sun in the morning and shade in the afternoons and is an ideal place to chill out. The kitchen is fully equipped with every utensil for cooking a four course meal or a quick snack. Summer or winter this is a very comfortable apartment. The booking arrangements are: Saturday to Saturday. Our representative Eleanor will meet you at the apartment and show you arround.
And has sun all day: The property has two terraces the main front terrace is large 20.7sq m and has a magnificent view of the bay of Villefranche and Cap Ferrat. The garden terrace is 23sq m and is sunny in the mornings and cool and shady in the afternoons. This terrace is perfect for a romantic dinner or just somewhere to escape to. The front terrace has the sun from 9am 7pm depending on the time of the year. Golf is available locally and during the season skiing is about an hour away by car. The medieval town of Villefranche is a delight with narrow cobbled streets and many restaurants to suit every taste. We provide a meet and greet service, our representative Eleanor will meet you and show you round the apartment.
One of the many features of the apartment is the book library. The library consist of some 500 books, hard and paper back with subjects ranging from the latest fiction, adventure and romantic novels, biographies, history and travel. It would be impossible not to find an interesting read and the collection is continually being upgraded.
The apartment is very well equipped, including items that you normally don't find in a vacation rental. It is well maintained, clean. There is quite a variety of books including guide books and maps and many television programs in English. The balcony is large with a most beautiful view of the bay with constantly changing views of yachts and cruise ships. The weather during our stay could not have been better. Construction noise in September was at times quite loud. However, the nights were very quiet for sleeping. Parking during the first week was outside the complex, the remaining time was available within the gated community. The location made driving to various cities in the Provence very easy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time eating breakfast and dinner on the balcony. Since we had a car, shopping was convenient and we did not have to walk up and down a relatively steep hill to town or bus. I would recommend it to friends and anyone interested in this wonderful part of France. Pat R.
We arrived and were directly wellcomed, this was good organized - we found it corresponding to the description without problems; it is very cosy and personnally furnished, it's like feeling home, the balcony - wide over the whole front with this geat view over the bay is inviting to stay there the whole day to watch the ships, the stars and to relaxe and enjoy the sun!
In the kitchen you find everything you need, the beds are fine, I liked the the shower very much.
Villefranche itself is a nice little town - and you can use the train or bus without problems to reach Nice, Cannes or Grasse; there is the possibility to do nice little promenades, stay on the beach;
The apartment is perfect for a couple with children even they have to share a room, because they need it only at night because of the activities during the day -> not at least the pool!
The entire property was very clean, well maintained, quiet and in a good location. The short steep walk was definitely not an issue for us. Our family of 4 felt very comfortable in the apartment, it is very spacious and layout very practical. We spent early mornings and late evenings on the large terrace overlooking the spectacular view of the bay. We received excellent customer service from the owner and the property manager. The location of the property gives you easy access to public transportation which can take you to many towns and cities in the region. We were very pleased with the food and service at all the local restaurants in Villefranche Sur Mer. All service staff were very friendly, language barrier was not an issue and we were never rushed out for next seating. We really enjoyed the beach in Villefranche. Beach and water were very clean and it has convenient parking and is only minutes away from restaurants for a quick lunch. We definitely look forward to returning to Villefranche Sur Mer and would stay at Cactus Roc again. Cactus Roc met all of our expectations and I would highly recommend this property to my family and friends.
Had a great stay; our second time here with the kids.
Nice apartment with all the things you need for a two week stay with the kids.
Had wireless and Sky.
Need to be fit if no car as quite a walk up from the town / bus stop.
Great links to other areas.
First time for us at Cactus Roc, though not our first time in Villefranche. The apartment was superb, extremely well- equipped and tastefully frurnished, with a view of Villefranche bay to die for. Brian provided excellent customer service and and made our stay very comfortable indeed. In particular, we really appreciated all the little extras available to us in the apartment, like umbrellas, binoculars (to watch the cruise ships in the bay!) and a large collection of books. We were amazed that there were even coal and firelighters provided for the barbecue. We absolutely loved the 2 terraces and spent most of our time relaxing outside. The only slight downside for us, not having a car, was the steep hike back up the hill from , but it certainly helped to keep us fit! Would totally recommend this apartment!
This was our 2nd time at Cactus Roc.
We couldn't plan our getaway to any other place...as Cactus Roc kept coming back in mind.
The apartment is class-1. Day & night views from the terrace are mesmerizing. A very quiet and relaxed hideaway. Just a few minutes’ drive down the mountain to the awesome "Villefranche" bay and old town.
Yes you do need a car to get to the apartment, as it's located in the mountain and that’s the key for the astonishing views you get from the terrace.
Apartment is fully equipped with everything you need for a short or long stay.
Building complex is fully secured.
Starting to plan my new trip back for May 2013.
Villefranche is one of the nicest towns on the Cote d'Azur with narrow shaded streets and restaurants to suit every taste. The town is also ideally situated on the Cote d'Azur for access to Cannes, Antibes, Monte-Carlo and being practically on the Italian border, Northern Italy and the Italian Riviera. During the season skiing is one hour away. By car Villefranche is only 15 minutes from Nice airport.The train and bus services are very good. The whole Cote d'Azur is accessible by train or bus. Nice is 10 min by car Monaco 20 min by car. Italy is a short train journey or 30 min by car.
The apartment is also conveniently located for access to the Institut de Francais. (The French language collage). Further information on our web page, ask for details.
