An idyllic hideaway yet only moments from the beach, restaurants and shops, public transport and all the great local walks & scenery. During Covid 19 we will supply hand sanitiser and provide extra cleaning products. For longer stays we will offer extra towels and bedding. The apartment will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each guest. More

About the neighbourhood
The Old Town is a real jewel, with its medieval citadel and its historic, atmospheric streets lined with shops, restaurants and cafes: all within easy reach. The Col de Villefranche is a busride, a drive or a fairly long walk away from the Old Town. There's something for everyone around Villefranche. In the Old Town there's a lot of history, and loads of restaurants, cafes and gift shops, as well as food shops, bakers, butchers etc. It can take several days just to explore the immediate vicinity; clambering over the citadel, and the fort at Mont Alban that overlooks it; walking around the coast in both directions, exploring the nearby towns of St Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu etc.Many famous artists have visited Villefranche and painted here; you will see Jean Cocteau's church on the sea...
Getting around
BUSES: The Nice – Monaco bus runs regularly (approx. once every 20 minutes); climb up to the main road that runs through Villefranche to find the bus stop: It’s by the pharmacy on Ave. Princess Grace (near the seahorse statue) for buses to Nice and across the road for Monaco buses. TRAINS: The Railway station is just above the beach – at the end of the Rue du Poilu; get hold of a timetable or check them out online via SNCF’s website. They’re not as regular as the buses and they cost more, but they are quicker and go further (beyond Cannes or to Grasse one way, and into Italy the other)
