This was our second visit; we were blown away by the apartment in 2016 and just had to come back in 2017.
The apartment couldn't be better, the space, equipment and air con make it a great place to stay and it's location means that it's nice and quiet, away from the very centre of Villefranche. The closeness of the station and the frequency of trains mean that travel along the coast is really easy and the trains are so quiet that you don't notice them when you're in the apartment.
We'll definitely be back, possibly at the very start or end of the season when it's not quite as hot so that we can explore the coast more comfortably on foot; Cap Ferrat looks particularly nice.
We recently returned from two weeks at Villefranche Vista, a party of four with our daughter and her partner. The apartment lived up to all our expectations and was located in a small apartment block very close to the beach and next to the railway. The trains pass by yes but it really wasn't a problem as far as we were concerned and the proximity was great when it came to visiting other places. What sealed the deal for us booking this apartment was the photo of the view and take it from me it is incredible. Forever changing we spent lots of time relaxing with a drink watching the beautiful bay with all its comings and goings. The master bedroom has sliding panoramic windows which lead out onto this balcony which is a very spacious one with plenty of seating and a table for dining. The apartment was very roomy. We had everything we needed which was great. The booklet giving instructions about everything was a real help. The apartment manager was also very helpful. The meeting up on arrival etc. was very straightforward. Having experience of this part of France before we didn't hire a car and really didn't need one here as everything is within walking distance. It is very hilly but as time goes by you seem to get more accustomed to it. However I would say that anyone with mobility issues may find Villefranche sur Mer quite a challenge. All in all we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely go back again in the future. Thank you to Shelton, Donna and Enzo for all helping to make this a great holiday for us.
Villefranche Vista has a beautiful, relaxed ambience that has nothing to do with the amazing view straight out to sea and the light streaming in every window. Sometimes you just walk into a place and everything feels positive, calm and perfect. This is such a place.
The close proximity to restaurants, railway and beach, the increfible view, the privacy, the immaculate and spacious rooms, the perfect kitchen with all appliances etc has already been covered by everyone else writing a review. I needn't add anything more, except to say the apartment is in my opinion faultless and definitely the best place to stay in Villefranche.
We only had the last 2 weeks of July here and wished it could have been 2 months. I would go back in a heartbeat.
Spacious apartment with lovely views - very convenient for the station. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and I particularly liked the fact that previous guests left herbs, cooking oils and other bits and pieces which made cooking very easy. The beds were also very comfortable. Villefranche itself is a very pretty village and the Citadel is well worth a visit. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.
We absolutely loved how spacious and comfortable this apartment was. We found the quality of furnishings, finishes and general comfort to be of a very high standard. The spectacular views of Villefranche Bay from the terrace were just breathtaking and definitely the best on the coast......a perfect spot for morning coffee and wine in the evening.
The apartment was a wonderful base to travel from. Having the train station close by for accessibility up and down the coast was ideal, particularly when arriving home late at night, with the kids. I was surprised how little noise was heard from the trains in the apartment. The convenience of apartment to beach and village was so easy.
We can't fault the spacious apartment or the beautiful villefranche location and without a doubt we will definitely be back.
