Villefranche-sur-Mer, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur, Provence
Possibly the best apartment in Villefranche. Very large and with a U shaped layout. Built in 1820 and traversing Rue Obscure, dating from the 13th century, entry is off Rue Poilu without any stairs to climb. There is also a basement housing washing facilities etc. <BR><BR>Everything in the apartment is new, with a very high standard of furniture, bedding, curtains, fabrics, flooring etc.The total area is c. 2000 sq. feet making this one of the largest apartment in the Old Town.<BR><BR>The location is unbeatable as it has 5 windows to the front (+ 6 at the back) and there are no stairs to climb. There are 2 balconies to the front. One is fitted with table and chairs. All ceilings are high as it was constructed from 3 old apartments made into one. The main building dates from 1720 and Rue Obscure (underneath) from 1... Read more

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We stayed late December and into the new year in this surprisingly large but quirky apartment with small but much appreciated water views over the pretty port of Villefranche sur Mer. Apart from some minor hiccups involving maintenance like wifi that did not function, and slightly battered cooking and eating utensils (plus a potato masher would be a handy basic) it all worked fine and the extended family could spread out. One downside was the...
