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 Melinda Reach

Jean-Paul and Melinda Lecomte

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

Melinda Reach purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Melinda Reach chose Nice Area

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.

Perfect location in Ville-franche!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the LeCompte apartment in Ville-franche. The apartment was in a perfection location to explore the city by foot. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go; all the cafes, restaurants, harbor, and beaches. The only thing that was slightly difficult was the steep stairs with our luggage, and finding parking in the area, but we didn't mind, and Monique helped us with anything that we needed. Beautiful, clean apartment with an unbeatable coastal view!! thank you Monique

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!

Great location, just like the pictures!

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.

Lovely apartment with a great location and a beautiful view.

The apartment is lovely and immaculate, is very well located and has an amazing view over the tile rooftops of Villefranche out to the sea. Monique couldn't have been amore helpful getting us settled. We will come back here!

Fabulous property, fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a gem. The property is very well maintained. Monique who manages the property made time to show us the area on our first evening, suggesting restaurants (there are many!), where to go and what to see and do. An amazing location with reliable transport links. You can either stay and enjoy Villefranche or explore places nearby. There are lots of steps, but the view you get is worth it and you can also justify eating croissants each morning guilt free! We will happily return and actually found it hard to leave. You will have a very happy and comfortable holiday if you stay here.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this lovely apartment on the southern coast of France. The apartment was beautiful, and the view from the window was heavenly. We sat by it morning, afternoon, and night, when we weren't swimming at the beach, eating at one of the wonderful restaurants, or going for a walk in town or to a neighboring town. The manager, Monique, made our stay even more enjoyable, and helped us with a number of logistical details. It is true that there are many stairs in town leading to the apartment, and to the apartment itself, so this is indeed not a place for someone with more limited mobility. But we loved getting a lot of good exercise, and would come back in a heartbeat!
