    Property description
    Villefranche-sur-Mer
    |
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Enjoy the charm of a bright and airy French Riviera apartment in the pretty medieval town of Villefranche-Sur-Mer. This recently renovated apartment offers the rare combination of a superb sea-view terrace with the charm and facilities of living in an old-world town being a 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants and bus stop. As soon as you enter the apartment, you are met by a burst of colour --'' Eclat de Couleur '' of the beautiful Bay of Villefranche. You will be enchanted watching the changing colours of the Mediterranean against the backdrop of Cap Ferrat, the haphazard pattern of the '' Provencal '' terracotta roofs, the arrivals and departures of the cruise ships and constant activity of small craft in the Bay.
    This is one of five exclusive apartments i...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The apartment is furnished and equipped to the highest specifications. Its major feature is its expansive terrace divided from the main area by floor-to-ceiling sliding windows. So the mediterranean sunshine floods the apartment from breakfast time right through till sunset. And the view? The sky, the bay of Villefrance and the roofs of the old village. Within walking distance is... more

Management response:

The 'floor-to-ceiling sliding windows' are fully retractable making the lounge part of the terace. The 'stiff climb' is a 50m climb up gradual steps or along the footpath which is more gentle. Eamon & Eileen more

We loved our stay at Éclat de Couleur. It is perfectly located to explore this area of the French Riviera and the hinterland villages, being close to both bus and train public transport options, and yet very quiet and peaceful compared to busy Nice. We found living at the top of the charming old town of Villefranche absolutely delightful -... more

Management response:

We're delighted Mette and Brad and three children enjoyed the location of "Eclat de Couleur" close to public transport for visiting the varied attractions on the Cote d'Azur. It is wonderful being able to pop out for a fresh baguette in the local bakery or to wander down to one of the excellent restaurants. Eileen and Eamon more

We stayed at Eclat de Couleur for one week in August. The owner has an English-speaking property manager who was just amazing for giving us local knowledge, public transport information, restaurant recommendations and also arranged a taxi to collect us from the airport and deliver us straight to the door of the apartment where she was waiting for us. We... more

Management response:

We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay in "Eclat de Couleur" and that you found our local manager helpful. While there is a climb from the harbour to our apartment of about 50m the climb would be much greater if the apartment was located higher up above the Old Town. Eileen and Eamon more
