In the heart of Villefranche sur Mer old town, in a 1700 building, our apartment is on top the floor and has been fully renovated in 2016 again:) with all high end amenities, to create a real home away from home.
The first amazing point is that we are on the top floor but you will only have to walk up 5 steps to the main door, which is a luxury itself in the old town!
Charm, comfort, cozy feeling,is all you will find staying here as a family, or for a romantic stay, and even for friends gathering.
The apartment has been set to offer everyone privacy : the living room and open plan kitchen are central, while the master bedroom with it's full shower room is on one side, and the second bedroom and full bathroom on the other side. So if you're travelling with children or with another couple of friends, everyone gets it's own space !
The Italian designed kitchen has a granit top, easy to clean, and absolutely all you need to cook after shopping at the local market.
Heaven's nest is a real home away from home with 7 double glazed windows, lots of lights, a nice view on roof tops.
The master bedroom has a view on an old Villefranche Arch, with it's full ensuite shower room (antique marble). Bed is 160 cm queen size.
The second bedroom, as you can see in the pictures, can be set with twin beds, brand new matteresses, or a queen size, or as a triple. The third bed comes down from the wall, and is only adapated for children or teenagers, but it's great to be able to fit 3 children in the same bedroom, so everyone can enjoy the living room with nobody sleeping on a sofa !
When I say full bathroom,or full shower room it includes in each a WC,a sink,and a shower or bath.We also thought that it would be great for friends to be each on one side,and each their own bathroom.
Right nearby second bathroom, is our mini laundry room,with a washer and a dryer on top, so you can travel light, or if Villefranche is only a stop during your journey in Europe, we thougt it would be great to have access to a full laundry system !
Our street is very quiet during the day, but of course in season, are you will be centrally located, there might be fun things with a little noise in the area, including some restaurants. However, Villefranche's is not a nightlife city, so by midnight maximum and in high season or special week ends, there might be some noise, but we never had any complaints though.
It's very important for us that our guests know exactly what to expect, so be aware that in Villefranche old town, everything is super handy, but no cars, so you need to walk up and down steps and through narrow medieval streets all the time.
The train station is about 7 mn's walk away, the seashore only 2 mn's away, and the beach about 7/10 mn's walk away.
The first restaurant is only steps from our place, and all the others are withing 5 mn's walk from Heaven's nest. As we love to share our tips about the area, we do provide a full guide about where to eat, what to do, what to see, with also off the touristy path sightseeing !
For the groceries, everything is accessible in the old town, bakery, butcher, small supermarket, news papers, etc... and within 5 mn walk from the apartment.
As previously said, there are no cars in the old historical town, so we don't have private parking and a car is not necessary as public transportation is great, Monaco is only 6 mn's away with the train and so is Nice.
However, should you travel with a car, just let us know, we can share information about free parking and best spots, but also about city parking places to park 5 mn's away from the apartment, in case you cannot find a space after exploring the area.
The apartment has unlimited phone calls to 103 countries on land lines, and also on locals, which our guests find great and feel secure about having a phone they can use in any case.
The TV has English news channels, but also entertainment and sports in English.
Pricing : All the pricing includes the linens, the towels, the beach towels, the air con, the heat, the high speed WIFI internet, starting cleaning kit and more as again, it's a home, not just a vacation rental (I don't like traveling and renting places where you have 2 skillets and one pot, or 4 glasses, 4 plates, etc....). unlimited phone calls to 103 countries.
For any requested period and quote, price always includes all the above. Balance is due 60 days prior to arrival.
Security deposit is only charged on credit card authorization for 600 € and only debited if damages. Off course you will always receive all the invoices showing what has been paid and a refund of the remaining funds.
Off course, breaking a glass or a plate is ok, and will not be debited.
I take pride in giving places that are spotless in every way, linens ironed, washed with bacteria killers, etc...., and will only give you what I would actually put my own family in :)
If you travel with toddlers or babies, we can provide with a cot and a high chair if needed.
We also have toys, DVD's and all you need to have a good time at the beach. With all the restriction now when we fly, we have tried to provide everything so that our guests can travel light !
We can also organize an airport pick up for you in a van, and our past guests find it easy and smooth to have someone meet them in the airport terminal and take them directly to us so we can hand over keys and show you around.
We try to be very flexible upon arrivals, as we have a family too, as long as you can communicate with us in advance about arrival. If the apartment is not ready, you can drop your luggage off, and we will do the best we can to have it ready ASAP. Late check in are also easy, so just let us know, we've never left anyone out ! Check out is at 10 am or before. If you have a late flight, we offer the possibility to stay in the apartment for the charge of half a night if that day is open when you book. Just contact us as soon as you book, so we can provide.
Should you need assistance during your stay, we're only 10 mn's drive away and will be happy to help or give you advice.
We will also very happy to host guests willing to spend the low season month enjoying the French Riviera and our amazing weather. So feel free to ask us.
We are also used to host guests attending the French Institute willing to relax after a day spent hearing French !
If you are looking to explore our magic area, but would also like to feel like locals, you are only steps away !
Returning clients over the years, many friendships, are our best rewards.
Looking forward hearing from you !
