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.

What makes this apartment unique
Proximity to shops yet in the best part of the most unusual village in France
Guestbook comments from the manager
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.
