Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer - Villefranche Vista

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.

Second time even better

  • 5 of 5

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.

A view to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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!

A piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the south of France. My wife, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our accommodations were outstanding. Suzanne was a pleasure to deal with. The unit overlooks the bay and the views are magnificent! Having breakfast on the balcony and taking advantage of the views was special. It exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to go back.

Great apartment with terrace overlooking the sea

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Villefranche Vista. The apartment is wonderfully bright, well maintained, clean and spacious with a large terrace with dining table and chairs and comfortable couch and armchairs. The terrace gets the sun all day so we spent most of our time out there eating, drinking wine and taking in the view. Inside, the kitchen is well stocked with dishes and utensils and the sitting room is large and bright, as it appears in the photo. The beds are extremely comfortable with good quality bed linen. The second bedroom, at the back of the apartment, has an ensuite while the front bedroom faces the sea and opens onto the terrace. The main bathroom has a great shower and bath. Suzanne, the manager, was extremely helpful and lovely to deal with. Equally, the owner responded immediately when we had an issue with one of the shutters. In terms of location, the apartment is 2 minutes' walk from the train station, 5-10 minutes' walk from cafes, bars and food shops. The beach is across the railway line and only a few minutes walk away. Before we visited, we were concerned about proximity to the railway line in terms of noise but this turned out not to be an issue. There is a regular train service to Nice, Monaco and lots more towns along the Cote d"Azur (if you ever want to move off the terrace!). We would highly recommend this apartment for families and groups of friends.

Unobstructive view of the MED on large terrace

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights - the property has been accurately described by the other reviewers. So yes I agree with the five star review of the property. For the US travelers I will mention that the parking is fairly limited and the roads to the unit are extremely narrow. For me personally I would never bring a car here again especially since the train station is just below the unit. Everything worked AC included - We did spend most nights having a quiet dinner on the Terrace which has a full table and couch and chairs.

GREAT for two couples! We would stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect apartment for 2 couples, or a couple with a child. (two if they can share a bed.) We had a two week stay and switched bedrooms midway through so that both couples could experience the bedroom with a view. It is very modern, has spacious living areas and is well equipped. It is represented very accurately in the listing. The best part is the convenience of the location to walk to town, the train and the buses which makes for easy transport to Nice, Monaco or any of the other nearby cities on the train or bus system. The plus side is being close to the trains but the offset is that you will also hear the trains. However, they are electric and are mostly fairly quiet. If you close the blinds at night, the sound is even less. The back bedroom is very quiet. The front larger bedroom is obviously a better view, but does have a bit more noise. A plus as well is that you hear the waves on the beach and people enjoying them. The train station is also part of your view and isn't that attractive, but it is offset by the beauty of all the bay of Villefranche when you look outward. The linens were very nice and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. Even with four of us taking showers, washing dishes and doing laundry, there was always plenty of hot water. It was great to have an elevator for our luggage, but the apartment is only up one flight of steps, so easy to access. Suzanne was very accommodating for our check in and check out timing. Highly recommended.
