Stayed at the apartment on my own the first week of May. It was perfect for my needs. Very clean. Close to everything (5 minutes) such as restaurants, shops, supermarket, bakery, and fresh produce. Close to bus stop if you want to catch a bus to Nice or catch a bus the other way to Monaco/Menton. Sitting on the balcony most mornings with my cappuccino and chocolate almond croissant from the bakery up the street, overlooking the bay and Mediterranean, was pretty special. Property manager Sandra was very kind and helpful. Apartment had everything that an single person or couple would need. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.

Relaxing stay in beautiful Villefranche sur Mer

  • 4 of 5

This apartment may have the best view ever and sipping a glass of wine on the balcony was sheer bliss. The only criticism would be that for such a nice apartment the linens were not up to standard Shabby towels and unironed sheets The toilet was not working properly on our our arrival and it took the manager from Friday afternoon till Tuesday morning to get it fixed . A little more attention to detail would make things perfect.

Perfect location, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Having traveled to this part of France before we knew the views are beautiful and the balcony in this apartment had the most amazing views. We sat here so many times just relaxing with a glass of wine. We found the meet and greet to be very friendly and accommodating. Super tidy and well-equipped apartment, not a bad word to say.

Loved it, will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Such a lovely apartment, we couldn't have asked for anything more, spotlessly clean with the most spectacular views from Villefranche to Cap Ferrat. We loved the local restaurants, excellent food and just a quick stroll away.

Magnificent Views.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location and from the apartment terrase there are magnificent views of the mountains, the Old Town and across Villefranche bay to Cap Ferrat.

The apartment was very clean and well equipped. Its only a short stroll to the nearest restaurants,the Old Town, buses/train station and a beautiful sandy beach.

We enjoyed this holiday so much that are looking forward to returning Villefranche in the near future and would definitily book this apartment again and recommend it to anybody.

Excellent location but very noisy!

  • 3 of 5

Stayed here for five nights in August, see below pros and cons from our stay based on our opinion:


- Location (very close to town and beach)

- Clothes Washer

- Kitchen is well equipped (with the exception of a wine bottle opener)

- Air Conditioned

- Building Neighbors were quiet

- Easy Check-In and Out


- Extremely Loud Street Noise from 7am-2am every night

- Lack of basic items provided (clothes washing soap, garbage bags, washcloths and paper towel)

- No Beach Towels or toys available for children

- Lack of information for guests in the guest book such as: where does the garbage and recycling go, recommended restaurants, recommended grocery store, transit information, etc.)

Would I stay here again? unfortunately, I would not based on the fact that sleep is important to me and getting a couple of hours of uninterrupted sleep was nearly impossible during my five night stay.

If you do stay here, bring ear plugs!

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that your stay in our apartment was not more enjoyable. We have been renting this apartment for the last 14 years and this is the first time we have had a complaint from a client regarding the noise levels at night time, we stay in the apartment ourselves several times a year and have not had any problems sleeping . The only thing I can think is that maybe the windows or the sliding terrace doors were not completely closed. Normally there would be a fresh roll of kitchen paper/bin bags are provided but obviously due to an oversight that did not happen in this case and I am sorry that happened. We don't like to recommend restaurants to our clients because as with most businesses they can have the odd off day and if some of our clients experienced one of those off days then it would reflect badly on us for the recommendation. The wine bottle corkscrew will be replaced immediately. Thank you for the positive comments. Alex.
