Condo/Apartment
The building dates back to the 1600's so an old village which was Italy. Stone walls that keep cool in summer and warm in winter. The glass doors open back so that the whole apartment is an extension of the terrace. The apartment has two large double bedrooms, each equipped with comfortable king size beds, as well as two contemporary bathrooms. The open plan kitchen/living area provides a nice retreat from the afternoon sun whilst still allowing you to admire the bay's views. The American-style kitchen comes fully equipped for those who love to cook and the apartment features air conditioning in the living room and fans throughout to keep you comfortable....The building dates back to the 1600's so an old village which was Italy.

We ask guests to be respectful of our property as if it were your home. We make huge efforts to provide a comfortable and clean environment for you and ask that you leave things as you found them. Of course we expect to clean and do the laundry after you leave but our change over is tight in the summer so it is helpful that garbage is removed and the dishwasher cleared.

About the neighbourhood
Villefranche is situated 4km from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay from their villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 mins away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten mins away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 mins. The village of Eze is 20 mins by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 mins. A car is not essential and the ...
Getting around
In high season it is best to be here without a car as the public transport options are great. However, you can get a permit for approx €15 from the Mairie which gives you free parking. You can be in Nice or Monaco in ten minutes and Italy in forty minutes. There are wonderful walks and the supermarket can deliver to the door. Of course there are lots of local shops to buy great produce and there is an organic market twice a week in the village.
