Great apartment, quiet in a very good location, owner and manager very helpfu;
Thank you very much!
You and your husband are great guests. We hope you will come back to us!
Wonderful apartment, well equipped, and in a great location
The apartment was great and checked all the boxes for what we needed, and we enjoyed our stay! Great location in central Old Town with convenient access to everything. It's very open and has a great view of the bay! Dorota was very easy to communicate with as well. Only slight negative would be the bed, which does not provide much support, so I ended up using the couch. As mentioned in the description, the stairs, especially at the end are quite steep and narrow, so just be aware of that. Overall would stay here again!
Well equipped property with a lovely view
The apartment was excellent thank you. The main issue was the bed, which was very small with no real back support. As this was for my parents, my mother slept in the bed and my father on the sofa bed.
Thank you very much!
We are so sorry for this unpleasant issue.
Unfortunately the bigger bed can’t be transported into the apartment- the main door is too narrow.
We consider buying two top mattresses for the next season. It should give a better support for the back.
Property was perfect for what we wanted and exceeded our expectations
We love Villefranche and the property was in a great situation in the old town and was equipped with everything we could possibly want.
Wonderful place - perfect location
We really enjoyed every moment of our stay here. The apartment is airy and well equipped. But the most important is the wonderful view of the bay and the ships coming and going. We spent most nights just looking at the lights. The owners were very helpful, even when we had a small issue (our fault) during their own vacation. The local representative was also very helpful and keeps the place spotless.
Lovely apartment with sea view, perfect holiday
The owner was very helpful an friendly and we were met by a pleasant young lady who showed us the facilities, The apartment was very clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the sea and Cap Ferrat and centrally located in Villefranche-sur-Mer, very handy for the local restaurants, beach and train/bus links. The apartment was well equipped although we didn't need to do much cooking with all the great local restaurants on the doorstep, we particularly liked the Trastevere Pizzeria. There is a sofa bed for 3rd/4th guest but would recommend an eye mask as the blinds nearby let in light early in the morning. Because the apartment is on the top floor there are characterful but quite steep stairs so would recommend keeping luggage light if possible, nevertheless it was good exercise. There is a patisserie and Casino shop a few doors away which kept us stocked up with all our additional food requirements. In terms of transport links the 100 bus a 10 minute walk away is only €1.50 to Nice and the airport or the opposite direction to Monaco/Ventimiglia. We would definitely like to stay there again.
Thank you for this nice review.
We will be very happy to host you again !
Between Nice and Monaco, Villefranche sur mer, considered the most picturesque village with a beautiful bay , reputed as one of the five most beautiful bays in the world, embraced by the Cap of Nice on the right and Cap Ferrat on the left.

Villefranche sur mer is one of the most charming authentic French and Nicoise fishing village on Côte d'Azur. You will love to watch and hear the neighbors hang out of their windows and greet each other, have a little chat or watch the day pass by. It's a delightful way of life unique to Old Town livings.

There is so much to do there, you can enjoy the beach,sit in the cafe or bar. Or maybe you will enjoy the French lifestyle, cuisine,delicious products and wine, shop in the local groceries. Or maybe you will do some sightseeing in neighboring villages or in Italy to get some Italian experience.
