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 house in 1995

The owner has bought this apartment for a family vacation destination, easy to reach and fly too. As all our children grow fast, and want to travel more with their friends, it's appeared to be a good idea to share this magic townhouse with renters.

I have to say I litterally fell in love with this house, (and believe me I have seen hundreds of them in the last 20 years working).

It's an old fisherman house, with a provence decoration, high ceiling, but with all modern amenities.

The square it's located on, is quiet, with the old fountain still running, trees.It just feels like time has stopped. The church is really close, so if you don't like the bells once in while, it's not the place to be. It's so close to everything, shops, the bakery, restaurants, the seashore. It's a little walk down to reach the beach in the summer, but coming back to a fully air con place is just a must !

In the heart of the historical Villefranche sur mer, on an old square with trees and a fountain, all the modern amenities, a small balcony in the front on the square, but also a small balcony by the bedrooms, with a view (a little more noisy though), the space, makes it a real gem in Villefranche sur mer for family or friends gatherings.

PERFECT LOCATION AND VERY CHARMING

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this apartment for one week in July and we had a great time. We have been to Villefranche about 10 times before and we have stayed at both hotels and apartments. This stay was about the best. The apartment is not fancy at all but it has a very charming, French, homy touch. The balcony with the view to the clock tower and the fountain is so beautiful. The location makes this apartment worth every penny. You have direct access to the apartment from street level which makes it easy to enter without having to walk narrow stairs to get up. The apartment got a few stairs from the door entrance up to the kitchen/living room and from the kitchen/living room up to the second floor. May not be suitable for very small children but we stayed here with our kids who are 3 and 8 years old without any concerns or problems.

The tenant, Muriel was very professional and the takeover was handled very sufficiently. She even provided us with a basket of wine, beer, soda and some snacks. That was very much appreciated when we arrived thirsty and hungry after a long flight.

We can definitely recommend this apartment and we would like to stay here again next time we visit Villefranche.

SECOND STAY IN TWO MONTHS

  • 5 out of 5
Second stay in two months (coming from the states) - what more do you need to know than that? Loved it the first time and loved it the second time. Turned out we had a few questions this time and Muriel was available by quick text to answer + help w/ arrangements

CHARMANTE MAISON AU COEUR DE VILLEFRANCHE

  • 5 out of 5
Maison très confortable et décorée avec goût, en état impeccable, idéale pour 4 personnes. Equipement vraiment complet (yc compris CD de musique, wifi). Les enfants ont adoré le 2e salon en mezzazine.

La maison est au coeur de la vieille ville de Villefranche sur une petite place très tranquille, à moins de 2 min de la mer (attention escaliers). Tous commerces et restaurants à 2 pas de la maison
La baie de Villefranche est l'une des plus belles de la côte. Il ne faut surtout pas manquer à moins d'1 h à pied par la baie, les villas Kerylos et Ephrussi de Rotschild et sur le port de Villefranche, la chapelle Saint-Pierre décorée par Cocteau. Villefranche est une base idéale pour visiter Nice, Monaco ou Menton.

Accueil sympathique par la propriétaire : conseils sur les visites et restaurants. Petit plus le petit déjeuner du 1er jour fourni.

Owner's Response: Merci d'avoir pris soin de la maison ! Nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez passé un agréable séjour, et que vos enfants aient apprécié le salon TV ! Nous serons heureux de vous revoir si vous êtes de passage prochainement sur côte ou pour un prochain Canarval de Nice.

Villefranche sur mer
Car: not necessary

Villefranche sur mer, a jem on the French Riviera,ideal for vacation rental, to relax,sightsee , and an excellent starting point to explore Nice, Monaco, Cannes and more. Villefranche sur mer historical town feels like time has stopped : medieval paved small streets, steps, fountains, shops, restaurants, shopping and birds singing ! All of that steps from the seashore, the beach, and with no cars to spoil the moment! The Cocteau Chapel by the water, decorated by Jean Cocteau, the 1500 Citadelle hosting City Hall and the Volti museum, only touring Villefranche sur mer is worth coming ! There is so much to see.

But also ideal to watch the locals still sit in the Spring or Summer by their doors, chat, and cease the moment.

Local dairy market, great bakery for croissants and baguette, all you need is in the old town. Train station is nearby and easy to reach Italy, San Remo,the markets,or take a day trip to Cannes or Monaco. Meet Villefranche sur mer, we know you'll fall in love.

Notes:
La Vieille Fontaine has a few steps to come in from the square, and also a gorgeous staircase to reach the TV room. Might not suit really young children even if the TV room is secured and a little barrier can be added to prevent children to climb upstairs. Ideal for families, all you need. High chairs, baby cot, and light carriage available at extra cost.
