Great place close to everything.
We are a family of 5 with children 14, 11, and 8 years of age. The Villefrance Sur Mer Studio Villa was perfect for us. We are a travelling family and so far this has been one of the nicest rentals yet. We stay at hotels and resorts usually but during this vacation my wife and I both agreed that the Studio was a great choice. We had the space, freedom and comfort you just don't get in hotel rooms. We were on our own and forced to discover the beautiful town.
The Studio Villa was very clean, close to the beautiful (old town) of Villefrance and the beach. We had many bottles of wine on the cute patio overlooking the bay. The kitchen was a perfect size to make breakfast, pack a cooler of lunch for the beach and even made a great dinner for the whole family a couple of times after a long day trip.
We chose to eat out in the old town almost every night because it was so close and you cant beat having dinner outside in an old (200 year +) seaside village. We found the prices not so bad for July. The restaurants down on the water’s edge we pricier than the ones a bit higher from the water. But all the food was very good.
Everything we needed was a walking distance such as markets and bakeries. We rented a car but mainly used it for day trips to Nice, Monaco, Antibes, Cannes and Italy. It was nice knowing that we were returning to our cute hillside apartment in a small town after day trips in bigger cities. The parking spot was a huge benefit. We rarely used the car in Villefrance. Although the beach is a nice close walk, we drove to the beach because as a family of 5 we had towels, umbrellas and coolers packed so it was worth the 5–7 euros for a whole day of parking.
I highly recommend this location for families, couples of any age and anyone that can handle the charming landscape and the romantic sea breeze of and old Mediterranean Town.
Thank you Mattie and also extend a thanks to Norbert he was very nice to deal with.
