The best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was spectacular; the view even more so! The panorama includes the 16tth century Fort du Mont Alban looming to the south and west with Nice visible beyond, along with the fabulous harbor to the south and St Jean Cap Ferrat to the east.

Our host was extremely accommodating and quick to answer requests, even recommending local attractions (for a special treat, try La Belle Etoile in the Old Town of Villefranche-sur-mer down near the harbour!).The person providing on-site support was equally so.

The villa is lovely, clean and quite pleasant. It was well-equipped. The beds were very comfortable. Ours was a group of six adults. We fit easily with room to spare. It is easily accessible, with the Moyenne Corniche (Nice to the west; Monaco to the east) a five minute walk away. Bus transit to/from Nice was easy, convenient and inexpensive.

In short, we loved our time at this lovely villa and hope we may experience it again one day!

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Helene is truly a beautiful property.

The villa offers a lot of charm both inside and outside. Combined with beautiful seaview and a big garden this villa is one of my favourite places.

The contact with the owner was easy, and he replied quickly to all my questions.

Absolutely a place to recommend if you love a relaxing atmosphere, but still want to be close to Nice and surrounding areas.

Sweet spot

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay. The house is a beautiful refurbished old villa on a small hill overlooking beautiful Villefrance-Sur-Mer. Needless to say, the Villa has spectacular sea views, but it also has the perfect secluded feel with a very homey vibe to it. It is easy to walk down to Villefranche harbour, or to Nice, or get on the train to Monaco (which takes about 15 minutes). We were three collegues there for a work-project, so we actually spent a lot of time in the house with the doors to the terrace overlooking the ocean wide open at all times (not a bad diversion from the most rainy part of Norway, where we normally do our projects). But we also found time to enjoy the surronding local restaurants, with a couple of trips to Monaco to boot. Highly recommendable!
