Some nice touches, but in truth the appartment is a little too small and the electricity not really up to scratch for a cold weather stay - we were not able to use numerous electrical appliances in the morning due to multiple power cuts, albeit temporary, they were a nuisance. Arguably in the summer this would not be a problem and you could bring the outside in via the patio doors giving a greater feeling of space. The owner is very hospitable and helpful. Villefranche is a lovely location - nice restaurants - with super transport links to the larger towns, particularly the bus stop at the bottom of the street. It is quite a taxing walk to the beach from the appartment so not for the fainthearted. In summary, so near but then so far from a satisfactory stay.
We spent five nights in this place and would highly recommend it. Elisabeth and Herve were extremely friendly and welcoming - on our first night they took us into Nice for traditional 'socca' cuisine and showed us the city, which was a great start to the holiday. The apartment is small but well equipped, with a nice seating area outside - perfect for breakfast or a barbeque. It is a 5-minute walk into Villefranche old town and 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. There's also a bus stop nearby going to Nice and Monaco. Villefranche is a beautiful place and a must-see, and the apartment is great if you're looking for a base from which to explore. We would go back there!

This is a comfortable, recently-renovated apartment in Villefranche suitable for two persons. It is situated in a lovely garden in a quiet sector of Villefranche, though within five minutes walk from the centre of the town. It is convenient to both bus and train so it is very easy to get to Nice or Monaco or even further afield.
Our hosts Elisabeth and Hervé could not have been kinder or more hospitable. So our stay was very pleasant indeed. Recommended for one or two people.
