About the property

Casa Carlotta has recently been renovated to a high end luxury boutique level.

This stunning two bed apartment is situated on the second floor of an elegant French townhouse in the most sought after part of Villefranche Old Town.

Casa Carlotta has some of the best views in Villefranche from its sunny balcony and is a fabulous location to enjoy and watch village life unfold.

With one of the most beautiful bays in the world to one side and the stunning peninsula of Cap Ferrat to the other it is situated in the heart of the historic Old Town overlooking the main vilage square.

The balcony is a perfect spot for your morning coffee, alfresco dining or a relaxing evening apero. It also benefits from the sun most of the day which is rare in the Old Town.

The apartment has a warm, welcoming, luxurious feel with contemporary, wooden floors throughout.

The glossy interior of Casa Carlotta includes an open plan sunny living room with a fully integrated kitchen with all utensils and a contemporary dining area with breakfast bar.

Top, modern amenities include wifi, HD Flat panel TV, Bluray DVD and a B&O Player.

The open plan kitchen has a large fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and all the crockery and dining utensils you would expect from a luxury, high end apartment.

The two double bedrooms have top quality Egyptian cotton bedlinen and soft, luxury towels.

The glossy bathroom has a walkin shower, bidet, sink and we provide locally made French soap and shower gels for our guests.

There are so many restaurants and cafe bars to choose from around the apartment in the vibrant village square.

The quayside is steps away for dining by the sea in one of the many waterfront restaurants to enjoy some locally caught fish.

The beach is less than a five minute stroll along the quay for a swim, lunch or an apero in the beachside cafes.

At Casa Carlotta you are just steps away from the water's edge, the shops, and all the best restaurants.

This apartment is ideal for students attending the Institut de Francais in Villefranche. It is a 10-15 minute walk up to the Institut and great in the evenings and weekends to be back in the heart of all village life.

About the area:

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a traditional French fishing village with two vibrant cities on either side - Nice to the west and Monaco to the east.

The bay of Villefranche is surrounded by two of the most beautiful Caps in the Mediterranean - Cap Ferrat and Cap de Nice.

Between these is the charming, unspoilt village of Villefranche-sur-Mer with one of the most picturesque coastlines in Europe.

The village itself is like stepping into a painting. It almost feels unreal with the gorgeous, coloured houses lining the quay above the many individual restaurants.

The boating scene is captivating here all day long. From the cruise ships, yachts to the local fishermen it can feel like you're watching, or in, a fascinating movie all day long.....

Our 10 day stay in Casa Carlotta, in spite of the windy, rainy, cold weather , was wonderful! Even though there was a lot of construction going on in front, it made no difference. We enjoyed watching the day to day progress of the plaza being repaved with stone and the fixed awning installed over the restaurants. Two were just beneath our balcony.

The view of the rade, St. Jean & Cap Ferrat and the lighthouse on the point was always fascinating to see. We could even see the Villa Rothchild just across from us! We watched cruise ships and their ferried passengers come and go.

A patisserie was only steps away, so each morning I took my 2 euro coin and bought 2 croissants while Bill made coffee. A routine we grew to love!

The Citadel with three museums, MANY restaurants and the Chapel decorated by Jean Cocteau were VERY close by. The Old Ville was such fun to explore - always a surprise restaurant around a corner. We had SO many choices - even Vietnamese! And we finally stumbled upon the Rue Obscura - but never figured out its purpose!

An arduous climb to the tourist bureau and bus stops set us to panting, but we're in our late 70's so no surprise there! The buses, which cost 1.5 euro, ran into Nice and all the way to Menton on the Italian border in the other direction, making sight seeing easy and very affordable! Just a bus ride out and back could be a simple and cheap pleasure!

And the apartment!!! We could not stop ourselves from staring out the two double doors to the balcony - even with the wind and rain! All of our expectations for a stay in Villefranche were met, and we plan to go back again.

We cannot imagine staying in any other apartment!

This property is AWESOME on many different levels. The view, the location, the flat itself and DONNA

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Villefranche by taxi. DONNA the property manager was there to greet us with a sincere smile and a bottle of Rosé in fridge. She showed us the flat,and gave suggestions on dining. She gave us her number and tools us to just call if we needed anything. As you will read later DONNA rescued us.

We settled in, unpacked a little, opened the bottle of Rosé and sat on our terrace enjoying the view of the Mediterranean and the boats in the harbor as well as the colors of southern France. Directly below us is a terrace filled with multi colored flowers rented by a life long resident of Villefranche.

The flat has everything you need. Two bedrooms (beds are comfortable with nice linens), bathroom, shower room with sink and bidet, kitchen and dining room. The two floor- to -ceiling French windows open unto the terrace. If you are lucky you can see the moon rise above the horizon, as we did.

The flat is in a great location near the harbor. Restaurants and cafes abound from French traditional to Italian to chinese. Climb the stairs behind you and discover narrow streets filled with history ( don't miss Rue Obscure) and cafés. Look for Epicerie Casino for fruits, veggies,coffee,milk,wine(nice choice of rosés between 4 -10 euros)cheeses etc.. Across the street pick up your croissants and baguette s and pastries.

** Every proprietor of the restarants, cafés, shops etc. were friendly and spoke numerous languages. NO Attitudes here.

There are three beaches near the flat- a two minute walk. Check out the view of Vilkefranche from the other side of the harbor at sunset. There are too many things to say about this area and the people.

We had a GREAT week.

DONNA . On the day we left the taxi we had reserved did not show up. We were to depart from Nice on the TGV at 7:00 am. It was 6:00 am. I called Donna. She put clothes on jumped in the car, picked us up and sped us to the train station with 5 minutes to spare. She saved us. Thank you ever so much. This is an outstanding property manager and a wonderful person.

Planning on returning next year. But next year we are bringing Donna a bottle of Rosé.🙏Namaste.

Casa Carlotta is situated in the heart of the Old Town overlooking the main village square and the stunning bay of Villefranche.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is nestled between Nice and Monaco (10 minutes from Nice, 20-25 minutes from Monaco). Although surrounded by a diverse, exciting cosmopolitan environment, it is still an authentic Niçoise fishing village.

Nice, Monaco, Antibes, Cannes, St Paul de Vence and St Tropez are easy to get to by public transport.

Take a ferry from Nice Port to Corsica (3 hours on the fast ferry), or head to Italy and visit Ventimiglia, San Remo, Portofino, Cinque Terre... But if you stay in Villefranche and the neighboring towns of Beaulieu-sur-Mer, St. Jean Cap Ferrat, Eze, and La Turbie, you'll exhaust a week or more just exploring and enjoying these lovely villages. Most of these are easy to access by public transport.

The French language institute, Institut Français, is a 15 minute walk away.

Then Casa Carlotta is perfect for evenings and weekends to be back in the heart of the Old Town with all bars, restaurants and shops steps away from your apartment.
