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.

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.

Mesmerizing View, Fantastic flat

  • 4 of 5

Would have given it Five Stars except the VRBO ad stated there was a tumbler clothes dryer and there wasn’t one. Everything else was fantastic. Spacious layout. Well equipped and everything worked. Bed very comfortable. View can’t be beat. Proximity to train station a big plus. Donna was an excellent property manager. Would stay there again!

Owner's Response: Hi Mark. Thanks for your review. I have checked the listing - it showed there was a tumble dryer with comment "there is a drying rack for clothes". I have now removed the checkbox for the tumble dryer. Sorry for the confusion and we hope to welcome you back next year...

Outstanding property on the French Riveria!

  • 5 of 5

Great location near the train station in Villefranche Sur Mer. Easy access for day trips to Cannes, Nice, Monaco and beyond. Perfect location to enjoy the Gran Prix. Easy 5 minute walk into Ville Franche to enjoy restaurants and shopping.

The Villa is well equipped, very comfortable and the view is incredible. We totally enjoyed our stay.

The PERFECT Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Villefranche-sur-Mer was the last stop on our European vacation, and after being at this apartment for less than 5 minutes, we wished it had been the only stop on our European vacation! The owner and the property manager were both very friendly and responsive, and the property itself was perfect for our family. It is literally in walking distance of the town and even closer to the train station. I've already recommended the property to two friends looking to visit France. As soon as we save up enough to be able to visit France again, I have no doubt we will be renting this property again.

Nice flat but lack of parking

  • 3 of 5

The only negative (huge) is the lack of parking - definitely would not be prepared to look for parking again, on a daily basis, up to a kilometer away.

Really surprised that the residence of area have not complained about the state of the station.

Coul not complain about the actual apartment.

Owner's Response: Hello Violet. I'm pleased you could not complain about the apartment. Parking can indeed be frustrating during high season - we try to encourage our guests not to rely on a car during their stay. Although I would say the apartment probably has some of the most freely-available street parking in Villefranche. Those staying in the centre of the village have no nearby parking at all. My wife agrees that the station could do with a lick of paint, however unfortunately that is something out of my control (the station, not my wife).
