VILLEFRANCHE SUR MER, France
16th Century Apartment - Steps from the Sea
Villefranche sur mer is perhaps the most charming and authentic fishing village on the Cote d'azur.
A light, luxurious and spacious 2 bedroom apartment recently renovated on one of the prettiest streets in the heart of the historical pedestrian 16th century old town of Villefranche sur mer, close to the beach, local shops and restaurants (casual and high end).
Our light and airy apartment is located on the second/top floor of a restored sixteen century building. Based on Rue de May you will be steps away from the sea and close to the local boulangerie, shops and restaurants.
Recently remodelled, the apartment is equipped with all the amenities you need to create beautiful memories whether you are a family, visiting with friends or on a romantic holiday.
As you walk into the apartment you will be struck by the three large French windows with traditional shutters which look out onto the picturesque pedestrian street and offer views of the sea as you look out from the windows to your right. The living area benefits from high ceilings, comfortable seating, air conditioning/heating, a dining table large enough for six guests and a delightful writing desk. The kitchen is fully equipped and the bathroom boasts a large rain shower.
The large light bedrooms are accessed from a beautiful wooden staircase, a central corridor separates the two bedrooms. The beds are hand crafted and sheets Egyptian cotton. Each bedroom boasts plenty of storage space and air conditioning/heating. The mezzanine first bedroom with glass balustrade has a comfortable double bed and the second bedroom (not a mezzanine) two comfortable single beds that can come together to form a super King-sized bed.
This charming base is just a five minute stroll from the beach; six minutes walk from the station, from which you can conveniently access Nice, Cannes, Monaco and Italy.

Villefranche was fantastic!
WE LOVED THE TOWN!!! The people were great. The food fantastic. Location second to none! You will get plenty of exercise to work off the food and wonderful libations of your choice. The apartment's location was convenient to the main arteries of the neighborhood where you find local pubs, bakeries, good and great restaurants, etc. We were blessed to find this place on short notice. The apartment itself is quite nice. European layout, meaning small and efficient for space. Our ONLY real complaint would be that the ceilings in the bedrooms are too short for us but we are exceptionally tall. BONK! OUCH!!! "Are you okay Honey?!" was a common exchange. Otherwise, everything was dreamy. The water is downhill about 4 blocks. The train station is about a 7 minute walk. We used the train often to bounce from town to town, super easy as long as you avoid rush hour. ”
Ideally situated in Villefranche with easy connexion to Monaco. The Flat is all white with a nice decor and atmosphere. The bathroom is tiny…and the old church bell are quite nice except if you want to sleep a bit in the morning.”
