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.

The Perfact Apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer 🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect in the heart of Vieille Villefranche. It is modern and has everything that guests need! It’s very clean and comfortable near a boulangerie, a boucherie, a pharmacie and excellent restaurants. And the view of the sea is spectacular!

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.

5 Wonderful Winter Weeks

  • 5 of 5

I spent five weeks, from the beginning of February, in your beautiful Villefranche apartment. Whatever the weather, I loved sitting with my morning coffee (or afternoon glass of rosé) at the counter in front of the window looking down over the tiled rooftops to the waters of Villefranche Bay below. On rainy days I was cozy and warm -- and very much appreciated the clothes dryer, which is not at all common in "old town" homes. The apartment is every bit as pretty as shown in the photographs and it was spotlessly clean. Monique, who greeted me at Place de la Paix and showed me to the apartment, could not have been more charming and helpful. When I contacted her a couple of times for something I wanted for the kitchen, she responded immediately. The location is ideal -- just steps to Marie-Claire's for wonderful bread and croissants; or to Bertrand, the green grocer. Also, it's only a short walk to either the train or the famous 100 bus, to take you up and down the coast.

I would recommend this apartment to my friends and family and would happily return. Oh -- and most important -- the bed is the most comfortable I have ever found. Thank you for this memorable stay in the charming old town of Villefranche-sur-Mer.

Perfectly located and absolutely lovely studio

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolutely lovely studio. Not only was it well situated with a beautiful view, the apartment was perfectly well equipped with everything needed for our stay in Villefranche. It was very clean and beautifully furnished. Another positive aspect was how well the property manager communicated with us before and during our stay. I would definitely stay there again.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Very nice apartment, quiet location in the old town. Well appointed and comfortable. It's perfectly fine, once you get over the 24 steps you need to climb to get into it. I would certainly stay there again. Hopefully, in the not too distant future!

The apartment was perfectly located right in the center of the Old Town. It's just like the pictures and Monique made check-in very easy.
