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.
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!
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.
We have booked up this apartment 3 times now, we still have a big grin on our faces when we open the front door, stress disappears and
the holiday begins, great communication between the owner and Suzanne who looks after the property

This was an amazing second experience. Having thoroughly enjoyed VillefrancheVista for one week last year we enjoyed the experience of Villefranche and it's surrounds even more for two weeks this month. VillefrancheVista is a most spectacular apartment, to wake up to the vista of the bay, to have breakfast on the balcony overlooking the bay and it's never ending movements, is amazing. The apartment is fitted out superbly, totally comfortably and fully equipped, from soundsystems to kitchen utensils! Everything you need. We are four mature travellers, active, love the restaurants of Villefranche and find VillefrancheVista so perfectly situated to everything. The trains being close are a bonus, with easy travel to Monaco and Antibes. We would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a perfect stay in a perfect place.
Perfectly situated vantage point to either watch the cruise ships enter the harbor or take easy excursions to every desirable place on the Côte d'Azur.
Maximum comfort in this beautiful two bedroom two bath apartment. My wife and I selected this apartment for our honeymoon. Host was gracious and communicative throughout the process. Helped with all advance planning including arranging for our pickup at the Nice airport.
Easy walking to great shopping, restaurants, and the scenic Villefranche sur mer, as well as to Cap Ferat.
Train station is one block away, easy access to all rail destinations on the French Riviera or simply to central Nice.
Automated window shields block out all light and sound when it's time to sleep, otherwise spectacular views of the harbor and town.
Property was immaculate, well maintained and exactly as shown in the photos.
All business transactions were prompt and correct.
Thank you to our lovely host for a fantastic experience and accommodation!
