“FANTASTIC!!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME! Muriel IS the PERFECT host! We loved it so much we are going again this summer. We stated a month last summer. The apartment is a great size for a family. Two bathrooms is a bonus! The welcome basket is great the first evening we were there. I tell my friends that it is like living in the quiet country with all the amenities of the city. Everything is close, restaurants, grocery stores, butcher market, the train station, the bus, the beach,......ect. Loved watching the fireworks at night. The husband toured the Citadel several times, the hike to Fort Mont Alban is tiring but wonderful, sad part is it is never open. We walked there twice from the apartment. I found the people to be friendly. I would say hello to the women every day at the end of the street and the would say hi back, one day the women were gone and the men were there THEY said hello first!
We are excited to go again. Muriel makes all the difference. She was easly accessible, easy to talk to and willing to help. Thank you Muriel.

“beautiful retreat”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We absolutely loved the ambience of the accommodation and also of Villefranche. There were so many beautiful corners of the town to explore and it catered for every need from great restaurants, beautiful views and interesting history. Nothing was too much trouble for Muriel and financial transactions were simple and efficient. Loads of information was given to us before even arriving which meant one could research everything with the minimum of fuss. Loved everything about our stay.

“Nice apartment in the middle of Villefrance”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We really enjoyed our stay - a nice luxury was the aircon, so great to return 'home' and find the apartment nice and cool. The many TV channels was a great hit too, and yes who wants to watch TV when on holiday - well teens do - especially after 2 solid weeks touring around! The apartment is ideal for 4.... - 5 is pushing it, but with two bathrooms and a nice kitchen/living area you have all the space you need. The Balcony is a joke and the kitchen is missing minor stuff like cutting boards and a bread basket, but its nice.
Tips - be prepare for the really unattractive entrance - not nice at all, but when inside - you're okay! Parking is a pain - basically you have to go every 3 hours and pay up, that is if you find parking at all....
Villefrance as a city could use more cleaning up and you have to watch out not to step in whatever dogs leave behind! One does get the impression that the local doesn't really care or take tourists (and the income) for granted.

“WONDERFUL LOCATION”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

person found this review helpful

There were 4of us who stayed here in April . Had a wonderful week. Great location in the center of the old vilage.Apt. is modern ,compact,but with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths it was perfect.Received a very nice welcome basket from Muriel. We rented a car for part of the week. Parking was possible but inconvenient,but the car allowed us to visit farther away. We especilly enjoyed Eze, and St Paul de Vence,2 hilltop medieval villages. The train was very convenient for trips into Nice. We enjoyed the closnesss to the sea and had a lovely week. Have to admit the stairs up from the sea or down to the apt from the street were difficult at first,but gave us some excercise after all the great bread and pastries close by. The Italien restaurant across the street was closed but we really enjoyed the one on the corner just 3 doors away, Really convenient and great food. We would definitely stay here again

“Great apartment in superb location in Villefranche sur Mer”
Reviewed January 6, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We had the pleasure of staying in "Heavens Nest" over the New Years holiday. We traveled with friends of ours (another couple). The stairs leading up to the apartment are a little precarious, but with a little practice of going up and down, you become accustomed. It is not recommended for anyone who needs assistance climbing stairs.

The apartment was well laid out, comfortable, ultra clean and had all of the necessities needed (and more!). We were all able to access the wifi/internet connection without much trouble at all. The bed in the master bedroom (where we stayed) was very comfy. Our room was not large but it fit the bill for sleeping and changing (there was no closet to hang items, but there were four shelves and a small drawer where things could be stowed.) The bathroom was modern, updated and tasetfully done. In the master bedroom, were two floor to ceiling windows/doors that open so that you could view the comings and goings of the townspeople below.

The location of the apartment is centrally located, with a great restaurant literally a few paces away (La Serre). There are an abundance of steps most everywhere you go in Villefranche, and it was a fun challenge to find our way around with the least steps possible! The welcome basket and start-up groceries provided by Muriel were a much appreciated touch, and its contents lasted us through the week!

“Perfect place on the Cote d'Azur”
Reviewed January 6, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Muriel and her husband have created the perfect place in Villefranche from which to explore the Cote d'Azur. We just returned from a wonderful week in this spotlessly clean, beautifully renovated, completely equipped apartment. The welcome basket with bread, jams, cereal, sweets and refrigerator stocked with milk, water, butter and celebratory champagne was just the start of our great experience here. We were 4 adults and the 2-bedroom, 2 bath arrangement was perfect for us. Free Wi-fi kept us connected and satellite TV allowed us to check up on the real world when we wanted (not often).

The apartment has everything you might need: modern kitchen with all the equipment for cooking at home if you want: coffee maker, juicer, pots & pans,dishes, etc. There's even a washer and dryer right in the apartment. It's obvious that a lot of thought went into making guests feel welcome and at home.

It's a 2-minute walk to the water, a 1-minute walk to a great little, reasonably price restaurant. Patisserie and grocery are steps away. A ten minute walk gets you to the train station for excursions to Monaco, Nice, Ventimiglia. The same distance to the bus which will take you along the coast for one euro. Both are easy to navigate.

Muriel will help you with whatever you need. She arranged to have us picked up at the Nice airport.

Don't hesitate to book this wonderful, cozy apartment for your stay in Villefranche Sur Mer.
