It was clean and comfortable and well equipped. Pat and George who manage this were extremely kind and very helpful. Pats' suggestion to visit the monastery was great. Public transport great. We visited Villefranche and Monte Carlo. The apartment is right in the heart of the old town with plenty shops and restaurants. Easy walk to the promenade, the beautiful park and retail shopping streets. There is so much to do and see. Markets, churches, galleries, theatre etc. October a lovely time to visit. Sun shone every day but not to hot for a lot of walking. Thank you Athena.

Because our flight arrived later in the evening, Samantha organized a ride for us from the airport to the apartment. She also organized a highchair and a travel bed for our 1-year-old son. We stayed 10 days, so the dishwasher and the washing machine for clothes were very useful. There was a bakery very close, it can be seen opening the window, it was nice to have warm bread in the morning and every now and then something sweet too. :) Beach was close and we used quite a lot the tram to go to the train station. The tram stop was a few blocks away. Only a couple of negative things: the noises from the alley came easily to the apartment but usually the nights were very peaceful. And I won't be missing those over 60 steps to the apartment. :) It was good exercise to carry the 1-one-year-old and then one in the belly while climbing the stairs. :) Thank you very much Samantha, we truly can recommend your apartment!
