About the property

Luxury 2 Bed Apartment With Stunning Views Over The Bay Of Villefranche

Villefranche Vista is a two bedroom two bathroom luxury apartment. Enjoying an elevated south-facing location, it provides stunning views of the bay of Villefranche from the full length balcony, lounge and main bedroom. The balcony is exposed to the sun for most of the day and is perfect for al fresco dining.

The apartment was recently refurbished to a very high standard with marble floors and air-conditioning. Amenities include broadband wifi, a large flat-screen TV and Bose Sound dock music system. The open plan kitchen has an American fridge freezer with ice maker, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. The bedrooms feature double beds with Egyptian cotton linen and big fluffy towels. The main bedroom with sea view has a separate modern bathroom. The second bedroom has an en-suite shower room. Both bathrooms are supplied with l’Occitane goodies.

Perfectly situated on the edge of the old town, the apartment is a five minute stroll to the restaurants and shops. The beach and train station are a two minute walk.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a charming 13th century fishing village surrounding one of most beautiful bays in the world. This friendly and artistic town, in the heart of the Côte d’Azur, is one of the few spots on the French Riviera to have retained its old world authenticity and charm.

The old town of Villefranche cascades down the hillside to the water’s edge. Here, you are spoilt for choice with vibrant restaurants and traditional brasseries tucked away in the maze of narrow streets and alleyways.

Villefranche has a beautiful sandy kilometre-long beach and clear blue waters. Bathers take advantage of the average of 300 days of sunshine per year.

The train station provides easy access along the coastal route to Cannes, Antibes, Nice, the medieval village of Eze, Monaco and through to Italy.

Despite being a quiet enclave on the riviera coastline, Villefranche is surrounded by an exciting international scene. The amazing beauty of the village has long attracted the international jet set. Don’t be surprised to see a Hollywood A-lister drinking their morning coffee at the table next to you.

Wake Up To The Sound Of The Waves On The Beach...
average rating of 5.0 based on 18 reviews

Exceptional view, quiet and peaceful centrally located to many cities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villefranche Vista for three quick nights and it was just perfect. Donna communicated in a timely manner, met us with the keys when we arrived and was gracious to us as guests. The view is amazing - and the train is so close. Everything you need is there and the beds were very comfortable. So not only is the location fabulous but the property was perfect.

This has it all

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully furnished and fully equipped, and with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, it's very comfortable for 2 - 4 people. If you wouldn't think of staying on the Riviera without a sea view - and we wouldn't - this is the place to be. There are sweeping

views of the Bay of Villefranche and even though it was too cold in Feb. to sit out on the balcony, the view makes this a special place. It's convenient to the local train and buses, and there's street parking if you have a car. The owner and the local contact were a pleasure to deal with. Hope to visit again sometime.

Seaside Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Waking up in this apartment was the best part of our trip. Villefranche serves as a perfect 'home base' for a trip to the South of France. My husband and I explored Monaco, Nice, and even did a day trip to Barolo. We rented a car and parking it near the apartment overnight was easy. The apartment was appointed perfectly - plenty of utensils, cups, plates, and other amenities. The bathrooms were lovely and modern - I especially loved the window adjacent to the shower. The beds were comfortable and the bedding was great - even large towels were provided, something we've not seen in other VRBO rentals. The owner and the onsite coordinator (Donna) were great to work with and checking in and out was easy and very clear. Our security deposit was refunded promptly and without any reminder from me. I can't say enough about the view - every morning waking up to that view melts the stress away. The train's close proximity is very convenient for getting around and the noise is no bother - it doesn't run especially often, or at night, and its really very quiet anyway. Given the success of our trip and the comfort of the apartment, we are already planning to go back with my parents in the summer when we can enjoy the beautiful beach just steps away. I should also mention that the restaurants nearby were also great - there is even one that's a little famous having been featured in a Rick Steves episode (La Mer Germain). This apartment is a MUST - just don't book it up too much because we want to go back!

An oasis in our Europe trip

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as pictured. No surprises except the fully equipped, well supplied kitchen. Thank you to other guests who left pantry items. It made it feel like home. Excellent communication with the property managers and a lovely thank you from the owner at the end of our stay. Even in November we sat out on the balcony everyday. And the view !!!!!

The train station is right below the apartment. Very convenient for trips to Monaco and Nice. As other reviewers have said, the noise is not a problem if you close the roller shutters at night.

The towels were thick and large, the bedding and the beds luxurious.
