Ouf family have visited Villefranche many times,a fabulous village in Cote D'Azur.We stayed in a local hotel once and in rentals on other three occasions. This is a very hilly village and I have made the mistake with rentals in the past,where cheaper means one is located up the hill and far from amenities. We rented this property recently for our Easter break.We have re-booked again for the summertime.It is located beside stores,ATMs,beach,restaurants etc.The apartment is huge and airy and meticulously maintained.Myself and my husband intend to rebook for the Autumn as availability is limited due to its location and high standard .5 star rating without a doubt.

What a find! This apartment is a jewel in the most beautiful bay of the French Riviera. Beautifully maintained and very spacious and airy apartment with spectacular views over the bay. All mod cons available for everything that you could possibly need. This apartment rental is well thought out - its a home away from home but with a more fabulous view. Its a short stroll to the beach below so you can head for an early morning swim in the sandy beach below and you can pick up the sights of the historical village as you meander down. Located 3 mins from the public bus stop where you can hop on a bus and travel to Nice in 10 mins or go in the other direction towards Monaco. A trains also services the village which will take you along the entire coast. Villefranche-sur-mer has some fabulous restaurants which are worth checking out and are not overly expensive or you can dine on the sheltered balcony and take in the sights. My husband and I have returned to this apartment regularly. Why go elsewhere when we have already found heaven!
