About Muriel Berdat

My name is Muriel, and I have been a property manager in the area for now over 20 years. Years spent trying to give the maximum service to all my guests, to share my love for the area, and my love for the local people too.

Many years ago, I have decided to manage and rent only apartments or villas that I would feel comfortable putting my own family in. To me they need to be spotless, and very very well equiped. Not just 2 skillets and 2 pots for 5 people, or only 4 plates ! A nice reward is when I hear : it's just like the pictures, but my best reward is actually : It's even better than in the pictures ! All the properties are well maintained, I always add little things here and there by listening to our guests comments.

Should you need anything during your stay, I can assure that even the impossible is sometimes done to fix anything as fast as possible. Lots of my guests have become friends and come back regularly. I love to travel, and I know how important a vacation is, especially when you come from far away.

In each of my properties, you'll find a book with all my little inside tips and information, to find the places to see, or to eat, and live like locals if you'd like !

As a property manager, by Law in France, I have a license, and I have an insurance up to 110 000 euro to protect owners and renters of any problem. To keep my license and my insurance, I am audited once a year. This is your best guarantee that I 'll always work my best to meet you needs and follow my ethic line and standard.

I am a the happy mother of 3 great children, a 18 year old and twins 11 years old, the wife of a great man of heart, and an elected city council of my little town Eze where I leave.

Should you not know the area, feel free to ask what would be best for you according to your needs, I'll be more than happy to help. Wishing you a very pleasant Villefranche and the Riviera discovery.

Muriel Berdat purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Muriel Berdat chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

I have been a property manager on the Riviera for 22 years now, and when my husband and I saw this apartment, we just loved it because of all the windows, the light that was coming in ( I am a little claustrophobic and usually all the places in the odl town are really close to each other). Plus it was a top floor, but no high steps to reach it as it's only 5 steps up to main door. Very high diamond shape ceilings, the perfect display to have a parent ensuite bedroom on one side, with a romantic view on typical old town street and arch, and the children's bedroom on the other side with their own full bathroom, a well sized for the area living space. So we bought it ! We have remodeled it completely and have made it a home away from home. We have used all our experience as a travelling family, to give you all you need to have the perfect vacation, cosy, comfort, and typical. Because this is what we are looking for when we travel. We want the real experience,not only what tourists area offer. And on Rue Baron de Bres, with all the old stones, the locals taking out their chair after dinner to talk a bit, it is the real atmosphere of a southern France village. We would not say the apartment has a sea view even if you can see a little bit of the sea from the bedroom windows on the side. But so you know, when you are down here, you have a sea view all the time : having a coffee at a local café by the water, driving, having a train ride, the Mediterranean is present all the time. Villefranche sur mer is a unique picturesque little town or village. The old historical town, is right by the seashore, lots to do in the summer but also in the winter. Very easy to get around, train, buses, pedestrian area so no cars around. Only 20 mn from Nice International airport, Monaco is just 20 mn's away, Italy is so close. And Villefranche has everything, lots of restaurants, pubs, bars, shops. Very touristy area, but in the heart of the old town, so quiet, time seems to have stopped!

What makes this apartment unique

It's a very short walk to the beach, and to everything, and at the same time, so quiet. Take a coffee or a glass of wine beeing in an historical area is just amazing. Stress is washed away in seconds. But if you want the crowd, well it will just take 1 mn walk to find it !

Guestbook comments from the manager

Muriel,

Your hospitality is evident in every detail found throughout this beautiful space.

It truly felt like home while we were here and we are genuinely saddened to be leaving.

Thank you so much for everything and we will certainly tell our friends in Canada about this little piece of Heaven !

John, Kelly, Lindsay, Michelle, Amanda

PS : We will definitely be returning in future !

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay in this lovely apartment. It really has been our home away from home, and we were so happy to return! It is very comfortable and centrally located, with all conveniences. The apartment was spotless and everything well maintained; it is both charming and modern. There are countless excellent restaurants and shops of all sorts just steps away. It is a short stroll to the beach, the train, and the bus. Muriel is very helpful and can always be reached by phone, text, or e-mail. We look forward to our next visit!

Charming modern apartment of historic Villefranche

  • 5 out of 5
The owner of this lovely, well maintained 2 BD/2BA apartment made our trip to Villefranche so easy. From transfers from the airport to meeting us at Villefranche to personally walk us to her apartment, it was so organized. The apartment with the lovely views of Villefranche was everything we expected and then more. It was very clean, recently updated and the kitchen was well stocked. The location was the best with easy access to buses, trains, beaches, shops and delicious restaurants. I would highly recommend this to anyone traveling to the south of France. Can't wait to return!!

Jewel in VilleFranche!

  • 5 out of 5
Muriel's place is totally awesome! This was our second visit and this year we extended our stay by 5 days! The apartment is well situated in the heart of a "port village" with all the necessary amenities required during your stay. The place is well layout with two spacious bedrooms and adjacent bathrooms...You won't believe the light that comes through the living space - this place really feels like our second home! It's very easy and convenient to get around the Cote D'azur area...the train is very efficient and it only takes minutes to Nice, Monaco, Beaulieu sur Mer etc. Tomorrow we are heading back home and we will be sadden to leave - once again...however there's always next year! Thanks again Muriel for making our stay as charming and welcoming as ever!

I highly recommend Muriel's apartment...you won't be disappointed! It's a gem of a place...

Perfection!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a lovely, modern, fully-equipped, sunny apartment with 2 bedrooms & bathrooms separated by the main living area. It was so easy to travel by bus or train up and down the coast that no car rental was necessary. Muriel was very helpful and, in addition to a "welcome basket" (including a bottle of wine!) she provided lots of information on restaurants and places to visit. Villefranche itself is picturesque with several art galleries and a number of restaurants, and the open-air markets are wonderful - as are the boulangeries, patisseries, and other shops in the village. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you, Muriel!

A Perfect Stay...

  • 5 out of 5
"Heaven's Nest" was such a wonderful apartment for our holiday in Villefranche.
It is located centrally in Old Town. The apartment was well thought out in its design, and Muriel has made it into a welcome respite!

The apartment is situated one flight up from the pedestrian street (stairs are not for those who have mobility issues or could loose their balance easily). Upon entering the apartment, you'll find the laundry room (with stackable washer & dryer) to the right. (It proved very handy to have!) There are two bedrooms; one master bedroom with a modern and lovely, en suite bath. This bedroom is tastefully decorated in shades of blue and has two large floor to ceiling windows. There is a small shelved cupboard for storage. The second bedroom, also tastefully done, has two twin beds, closet space and an overhead pullman style bed for one more guest. There is a great balcony off of this bedroom, where a small table and chair are fitted. Off the hallway and directly across from the second bedroom, is another fully renovated, lovely bathroom with a tub/shower combination. The kitchen/dining/living room is an open concept. The well laid out kitchen offers everything you would want...full size stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker and of course all the dishes, glasses, utensils, pots and pans, etc. The living room has a flat screen TV, cable and wireless internet. Everything is in stellar condition.
To our delight, we were welcomed by a huge basket filled with goodies, the refrigerator was stocked with eggs, milk, butter, water and a bottle of champagne!!! All the essentials for a great holiday!! Five Stars. We had an absolutely fabulous time and will be returning--no doubt!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much and I am so happy that all my effort giving you the perfect place has made you have a wonderful time ! If you ever attend the Institut de Français, let me know as I give special deals in the winter ! I will add two pieces of furniture in the ensuite bathroom under the marble plan, with drawers to add some more storage in the master bedroom ! Thanks again for keeping our nest in a lovely condition ! Will sure hope to see you again ! Muriel

Villefranche sur Mer historical town is considered a real gem on the French Riviera. From the 1500 Fortress to the Cocteau chapel, all the old medieval pedestrian streets,and the easy access to a long sandy beach with clear waters makes it a real picturesque little French town to visit. Also, besides the few but very very busy streets, you will be amazed to find that if you turn on another street, you can hear the birds sing !If you'd like the crowd,you can have it,lots of shops,restaurants,bars,in the old town and by the water front promenade. Everything is within walking distance. If you'd like to visit Monaco,or cross the Italian border, it will only take 20 min by train. On the other side,you could be in Nice in 15 min. Local open markets, fisherman selling fish in the morning. And all the Mediterranean colors to greet you. The Rue Obscure the blind street is one of the most famous you should not miss. From a romantic stay to family visits and friends getaway, Villefranche has it all.

Notes:
Villefranche sur Mer old town is only pedestrian, and it's a series of streets with stairs to connect all the streets. So be prepared to walk, as it is the best way to discover this area any way. The apartment has only 5/6 steps to the main door, they are not too high, and could be easily done by anyone. Should you need a baby bed or a high chair, feel free to ask, we will be happy to provide ! Villefranche sur Mer train station is only 7/8 min walk away from the apartment if you arrive by train. Car is not necessary to stay in our apartment. We provide a supermarket card that will allow you to shop at the big Beaulieu sur Mer supermarket (right next door from Beaulieu sur Mer train station), and get everything delivered for 7 Euro only. Bus stops are about 7/8 min up from our apartment, and trips are only 1 Euro/trip/person ; also a pharmacy and a doctor are nearby should you need them.
