About Muriel Berdat

Hi, my name is Muriel and my husband's William.

We are the happy parents of 3 great children, Tennessee who's 20 and in College in Milan, Alan and Chelsea almost 14 years old.

I grew up in France from Italian parents, spent a year as an exchange student in the US, and have loved travelling since I was very young !

I have been a real Estate Agent for the past 22 years, and I now specialize in Vacation Rentals on the French Riviera.

I have also been an elected City Councelor of Eze since 2008, and I am in charge of helping the non French Resident.

William has been a plumber for the past 35 years, and loves to travel too, but more than anything, loves to improve our home with new features, new decoration, new bathroom, etc...

He's done a carrier shifting last year, and now loves to take my renters on day trips to explore the Riviera like they're locals ! (of course he also gets involved to help me with my rentals if something needs to be fixed).

William also loves to garden, he's done the veggetable and fruit garden on our roof, and is working now on the fitting of an outdoor kitchen and decking on the roof so our future renters can enjoy a relaxing area with panormic views on the sea and the mountains !

We both really enjoy meeting new people, and helping them discover the area like we sure would like to be able to discover other countries : from the inside !

High end quality service has always been a concern for both of us, especially as his and my clients, usually travel miles and miles to come on vacation down here, and coming such a long way, their vacation has to be as perfect as it can be !

My children would say that I am a cleaning maniac, and so is my sister Sam, and we work together managing my rentals.

Heart of historical town sunnywith panoramic seaview top floor close beach & fun
average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews

Perfect apartment for the 3 of us, but capable to accommodate more.

  • 5 of 5

Muriel is a true professional who has a keen eye for buying prime properties in prime locations and decorating them with panache. The place was generously equipped with everything we could have possibly needed and more. It has to be said that the view is the best aspect of the apartment, we have loved every minute of dreamily gazing out to view the yachts, the water, St Jean Cap Ferrat, the stars at night, etc. If you are considering this apartment don't hesitate, but keep in mind a stay in Villefranche sur Mer requires climbing and descending lots of steps. On the plus side, this means indulging in something yummy can be "balanced out", well at least in my dreams!

A flat with sea-view in an old town with modern comfort

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Villefranche-sur-mer is a beautiful little town 2-3 minute trai ride away from Nice. As Muriel described, an old town means going up and down stairs, a residence on the 2nd floor most likely without a lift. However, this home was worth walking up and down even for nearly 80 years old grandmas. Checking in and out with big bullages daused no problem whatsoever with Muriel and William's kind assistance. So nice walking to the train station every morning overlooking clean, blue waterfront. The kitchen cupboard was full of cooing ingredients. Muriel gave us very informative advice and helping heands. Would certainly recommend this home to those who want to avoid busy city center accommodation.

Great hosts, fantastic communication, and an absolutely perfect place to stay. The owners were great to work with, assisting us with transfers and providing information as needed. The apartment was beyond expectations, with a fantastic view of the bay, modern and bright decor, and excellent location only steps away from restaurants. The size of the apartment was ideal for my family of three...there would have been plenty of room for another person or couple, as there are two full bathrooms with showers. Can't praise the place highly enough. Just brilliant.

Gorgeous Views

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful apartment this summer. Lovely apartment, very clean, amazing views of the Villefranche harbor, in quaint and romantic old town, and steps from delicious restaurants! There is even a small market steps away for last minute essentials. I will definitely stay here again if in the area.

Only con are the stairs. They can be a bit killer when carrying suitcases. Other than that, excellent place.

Wonderful apartment - great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, modern and tastefully furnished. Very spacious with a fantastic view of the bay of Villefranche.

We loved the location - close to restaurants and shops and a short walk down to the beach.

Muriel the manager provided excellent customer service. We had a family emergency during our stay and we are very grateful for her kind support.

Beyond Our Expectations

  • 4 of 5

I was scared that the home wouldn't match the description/pictures but there was NO reason to be scared. It was great, and working with Muriel was so pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wonderful property with killer views of the sea out the back of the home and a quaint view of the village street out the front. There's tons of room and everything is super clean and nice. We hope to stay here again next year. The location is awesome. Just minutes from the beach and tons of restaurants. No need for a car. You do need to be in decent shape because the walking up and down in the village can be a little intense, and the steps going up inside the building and home are steep but not impossible. There are a couple of modern, very nice bathrooms but know that each bathroom is equipped with a shower and no tubs. I love a good soak so that was a little disappointing; however, everything else was so beyond our expectations I really couldn't be too upset about the lack of a bathtub. Thumbs up all the way.

Villefranche sur mer
Car: not necessary

Villefranche sur mer, a jem on the French Riviera,ideal for vacation rental, to relax,sightsee , and an excellent starting point to explore Nice, Monaco, Cannes and more. Villefranche sur mer historical town feels like time has stopped : medieval paved small streets, steps, fountains, shops, restaurants, shopping and birds singing ! All of that steps from the seashore, the beach, and with no cars to spoil the moment! The Cocteau Chapel by the water, decorated by Jean Cocteau, the 1500 Citadelle hosting City Hall and the Volti museum, only touring Villefranche sur mer is worth coming ! There is so much to see.

But also ideal to watch the locals still sit in the Spring or Summer by their doors, chat, and cease the moment.

Local dairy market, great bakery for croissants and baguette, all you need is in the old town. Train station is nearby and easy to reach Italy, San Remo,the markets,or take a day trip to Cannes or Monaco. Meet Villefranche sur mer, we know you'll fall in love.
