Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 2 +pull out sofa)

We bought this beautiful apartment after spending four years renting in the area. My husband grew up nearby, and we are convinced that Villefranche is a unique paradise on the French Riviera because of its small-town, friendly ambiance so close to the wonderful city of Nice.

Our location is ideal, offering spectacular views and unusual quiet in a sought after, old-town location. The Institut de Francais is within walking distance, as is the beach, all shops and restaurants, and very easy access to car, bus and train (just one block from the Place de la Paix,)

The apartment has been perfectly renovated to take advantage of its charming duplex layout, and offers a bedroom, dining area and living room with comfortable sofa, two full baths, full kitchen and a washer/dryer. There is a large flat-screen TV with free access to French channels, iPod and CD player, and telephone with free calls throughout Europe and the US.

About Russell Lecomte

Jean-Paul and Melinda Lecomte

We live in Maine during the summers and beautiful Villefranche in winter.

Russell Lecomte purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Russell Lecomte chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

Jean-Paul grew up in nearby Antibes. We found Villefranche when Melinda attended the Institut Francias and fell in love with the small village and its proximity to Nice

What makes this apartment unique

Villefranche is a 'little paradise.' We have the beach, great restaurants, and the most beautiful view on the Cote d'Azur. Our town still offers a small village ambiance just minutes away from bustling Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Monaco.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful home you enjoy here! Felicitations! The location is superb, the interiors are so pretty, fresh and clean and all is in order. I am sitting at your kitchen bar with a cool drink, watching the boats, listening to French music.

Thank you Melinda! I will take care of your lovely home.

Wonderful apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The apartment itself is beautiful - a rare gem that looks as nice in person as it does in the photos. It is well appointed, spotlessly clean, and has a gorgeous view of the water and Cap Ferrat. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the medieval old town and steps from many shops and restaurants. A quick walk to the train station gives easy access to the entire Cote d'Azur. We explored cities and villages up and down the coast, and as nice as they were, we didn't find any as lovely or charming as Villefranche-Sur-Mer. Finally, Monique was extremely warm and helpful at both check-in and check-out.

Excellent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

The view was amazing and the location very charming. The flat was clean and met all of our needs. If you are challenged by steep stairs, perhaps another choice would be better. For us, we were thrilled.

Lovely apartment with super view

  • 5 of 5

Had a really lovely stay in this apartment last week. Great location for sightseeing in the South of France. Short walk to a great selection of restaurants too. Everything you needed was here-washing up liquid, soap, laundry powder, towels etc. We hired a car but it was quite hard to park near the apartment so would recommend public transport if you can. Not suitable for people with mobility problems due to the very steep stairs up to the property but we were already aware of this! Thank you 😊

It really is 'le petit paradis'

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of spending the month of April in this wonderful apartment. For me, it was everything I had anticipated. Amazing views, fabulous location in the old town, extremely well appointed appliances and elegant decor. The bed is comfortable, and the linens are top notch. I was too busy to do much cooking but if I had wanted to, the kitchen was prepped for it. While there are many stairs leading to the apartment and stairs to the bedroom, they are not daunting if you take it slow and think about how great your 'fitbit' will look at the end of the day.

I cannot say enough good things about this rental and I am already counting down the days until my return ( and I listen to the recordings of the church bells that sound from the church behind the apartment).

A little gem in the old town of Villefranche sur M

  • 5 of 5

This is our first stay in this charming apartment but it won't be our last. It is situated in the heart of the old town and has everything you could possibly need, and more. It was spotlessly clean, with wonderful furnishings. There is a view through to the bay and has excellent wifi/internet connection. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
