A feature of this luxurious and conveniently located property 3 mins walk from the town centre are the world renowned panoramic sea views of Vllefranche Bay and Cap Ferrat, which can be appreciated from the large, L-shaped, 24 square metres, terrace. One section of the terrace is a solarium, while the other section is a summer terrace. Note: 1 square metre = 10 feet approximately. This spacious apartment, located in a quiet residential boutique development of just 9 apartments overlooking the Bay, boasts over 91square metres of living space and is accessed through an exclusive gated entrance with underground parking and cellar. There are also picturesque gardens and of course an outdoor pool. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility, yet located within a 3 minute walk of the town centre and its amenities i.e. restaurants, bars, shops, port and beach, park etc. Therefore, a car is not an essential requirement. It is also ideally located to the famous school 'Institut Francais'.
This apartment has been renovated with no expense spared. All fabrics are top quality with top of the range furniture and fittings. The view from the terrace can only be described as breathtaking ! The property is ideally located with magnificent gardens and an outdoor pool. It is an extremely private yet centrally located property in the town centre of Villefranche, (Basse Corniche).
We had a fabulous holiday.
The apartment was spacious and well-equipped. The large balcony and the sea views were a delight and we loved watching the cruise ships coming into the bay. The garage was a valuable benefit. The agent was very friendly and helpful.
Villefranche is an ideal spot for a holiday, with plenty to see and great for walking and sightseeing. It was easy to get to Nice, Monaco and Menton by car, train or the frequent bus services. The town itself offered a wide range of restaurants and small shops within easy reach down the hill on foot.
We highly recommend this apartment and will gladly return there in the future.
We stayed at La Colline for a week in June and it was simply perfect! My family had never done a vacation apartment rental before, and after this experience, I don't think we'll ever book a hotel again.
The apartment is spacious and well equipped and the view is nothing short of spectacular. We ate breakfast on the wraparound deck every morning - it was hard to leave the apartment and go sightseeing with a view like that! Our young daughters had good sleeps in the twin beds in the second bedroom. And the AC in the master bedroom proved useful on a couple of warm evenings. Patrick and Lucy Travers were polite during our phone chats ahead of our trip, and provided us with detailed instructions and info, and the gentleman Frank who met us at La Colline with keys was kind, and also incredibly helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions...etc. The walk to the centre of town is about ten minutes and includes a couple of hikes down fairly steep stairways. There's a wonderful Boulangerie about a five minute walk away, so breakfasts consisted of chocolate croissants and fresh baguettes. While we only made it to the pool once, it made for a nice afternoon. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to La Colline. In fact, I'm fantasizing about it right now!
The apartment enjoys a stunning location with a panoramic view over the bay.There is an extensive terrace to enjoy this view and we ate most meals here, although we did dine out a few times. The apartment wants for nothing in terms of equipment. We didn't take advantage of the television; the view was entertaining enough! The wi-fi reception was excellent and the garage facility was a major bonus in this bustling town.
Villefranche has a great deal to offer, both as a place to explore and to enjoy the many excellent restaurants.
A return train journey to Monaco from the local station was 6 euros each; this is quite a bargain compared with the cost of parking.
One thing to bear in mind, the walk back to the apartment from the town is short but quite steep, so may not suit everyone.
All in all this was a fantastic place to stay and we hope to return in the next year or two.
I stayed here for over two weeks last September. The apartment, its views, terraces and décor are all absolutely fabulous. The apartment is very well equipped and I cannot think of anything else it needed. I spent many hours sitting on the balcony enjoying the view sipping a rose wine. The main reason I chose this apartment, however, was that it indicated it had a pool. When I went to use it, however, it was clear that it had not been operational for quite some time. I spoke to the property manager and he indicated there was a crack that was probably not repairable. So, aside from everything else being beyond perfect, the fact that a pool had been advertised but was not usable was very disappointing.
Thanks Patrick for letting us stay at this lovely paradise in Villefranche. We started to miss this place since we left "La Colline" and we are still reminding the views from terraces, comfortable bedrooms, amazing living room. We'll be back.
Cote d' Azur, sun, view and a well equipped apartment all adds up to a relaxing holiday. La Colline is just this.
All you need to do is read the property details, and you are going to get exactly what is written on the tin. As a delighted and satisfied visitor I can absolutely vouch for the apartment, well laid out, thoughtful equipped, with a location to die for. Padraig and Lucy Travers really have got it just right with this extremely well run apartment. You won't be disappointed.
Sitting on the veranda as the sun sets over St Jean Cap Ferrat with a glass of rose 'googling' Tripadviser on the numerous restaurants within walking distance, is just perfect.
Location, location, location. Nice with it daily market is 10 minutes away. Monaco is 14 minutes by train. Or a 20 minute drive into the mountains behind Villefranche will take you to some of the most enchanting non touristy villages for a lazy lunch in the cooler mountain air.
I can really recommend this apartment at anytime of the year, except with I'm there!
This luxury apartment is situated in probably the most picturesque little town on the Cote d'azur. Villefranche-sur-mer is located between Nice and Monaco (Monte-Carlo). The port, the Old town and the Citadel all date back to 1300BC, with some streets unchanged for 500 years. The towns of St. Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu are both only a 3 minute drive away (20 minutes by foot), while Nice and Monaco are each a 15 minute drive. Nice International Airport is only 15 kilometres away. Known as the 'Golden Triangle', this area is considered to be the most exclusive part of the French Riviera and is truly one of the world's great locations.
