Great location! The property had everything we needed for a long weekend. It was great waking up on Sunday to the church bells.

“Compact and Bijou”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Lovely, modern, compact studio in a square in the old town - looks as good in real life as the pictures. Very impressed with the use of space and the level of detail - we wondered how this was possible! Bed very comfortable and lovely little balcony where we ate our breakfast, some lunches and our pre-dinner drink before going out. Great location especially for travelling on public transport - both buses and trains. We used the train almost every day but did not try the buses. Enjoyed our stay there so much we did not want to leave and hope to return soon.

“Charming Apartment in Heart of Old Town”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

person found this review helpful

I stayed in the apartment for almost 2 weeks while working at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche. Even though the weather was miserable (wind and rain most of the time), the studio was wonderful, offering a full kitchen to cook meals and washer to do laundry. It was a bit chilly at night when outside temperatures dropped to 5-6 degrees C (low 40s F), but there were more than enough blankets to snuggle up under to stay warm. This was my third time in Villefranche-sur-Mer and I must say it was the best place I have stayed so far and would stay here again. The owner was very nice and easy to communicate with through email. I loved the location right in Old Town, despite the fact it was a 15 minute walk to the lab in the morning (needed to walk off all the wonderful food I was eating)! I would recommend this studio apartment over a hotel room any day!

“Pleasant studio apartment in central location”
Reviewed July 4, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Apartment is located in beautiful Villefranche-sur-mer which we have visited many times but this is the first time we've stayed there. Its adequate for a holiday let however it doesnt have air conditioning which might be worth keeping in mind if staying in the heat of summer. The small balcony is lovely for breakfast and drinks in the evening. Directly below is a restaurant (which isnt obvious from the photograph) which could be handy for some! As one of the other reviewers mentioned you are very close to the church (bells) but its actually quite nice, local deliveries start early in the morning so dont expect any long lies. The apartment is very handy for the train station, restaurants and shops so no complaints on that score. I would say that communications with the owner werent very good ie initial confirmation of booking and the fact that we had to chase her up was a bit concerning. That said, its an adequate apartment and I would recommend it.

We have just returned from a lovely peaceful week in Villefranche, unfortunately the weather was cooler than we expected it still didn't stop us from having a lovely time. The studio on arrival was small but we expected this, once settled in it was nice and cosy with the little balcony to sit on and watch the world go by, the down side was the tower with bell nearby that liked to chime from 7 but even this added to the atmosphere if you dont have a hangover!! people friendly, but not the bus drivers!! we enjoyed a little restaurant called LeSerre great food not expensive, Le Cosmos, and the vietnamese restaurant good in fact we didnt have a bad meal the whole time we were there. Wander around soak in the atmosphere enjoy the charm of the place, we will return one day.
