The fully equipped kitchen also has a washing machine for our guests' convenience. The large Lounge/Diner opens up onto a balcony. There is WiFi at the apartment. Villefranche-sur-Mer is a delightful, historic French fishing town on the Cote d'Azur, steeped in history but with all the conveniences of the 21st century. A short journey from Nice and Monaco and a 45 minute drive from Italy, renting an apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer is the ideal place to base yourself for your holiday in the South of France. With a warm climate, beautiful beach and year-round azure skies, Villefranche-sur-Mer is host to many festivals, markets and events throughout the year. With its roots dating back to medieval times and a heritage of French and Italian occupation, the architecture is inspired and breathtaking. Bedding is provided but towels are not (please bring your own). With so much to see and do, one week won't be enough! Note - there is a refundable £500 security deposit required & a cleaning/sheet washing of £130 per booking. Please check and confirm you booking with me (Fraser Macdonald) before you book your flights. Please note that there 3 flights of stairs to the apartment (no lift). Located in the heart of the Old Town this rental apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer is ideally positioned. Close to all the local amenities and transport links as well as being just 100 yards from the harbour. The temperate climate, sandy beaches, and ambiance of Old Town in Villefranche-sur-Mer make this enchanting town a popular tourist destination. The natural beauty and topography of Villefranche-sur-Mer has also made this a favourite location for film directors. Films made here include The Jewel of the Nile with Michael Douglas, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Michael Caine, Diamond Geezer starring David Jason and Ronin with Robert de Niro. Attracting a cosmopolitan group of residents and visitors, Villefranche-sur-Mer has still retained its core character and local culture and is one of the most charming villages on the French Riviera in the heart of the Cote D'Azur. The apartment is in the Old Town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Old town is a wonderful labyrinth of tiny streets with limited automotive access. Check-in & Check-out times: Please make sure that you leave the apartment by 11am. Guests can arrive at the apartment after 3pm. You are able to leave your cases in the upstairs landing if you intend to leave after 11am or arrive before 3pm. Please note that the keys are posted to our guests and that enough time (1 week for UK, 2 weeks for Europe and 3 weeks for the rest of the World) needs to be available for the keys to arrive with you. If a key pick-up or delivery is needed at the apartment then a charge of £30 is made to cover the cost of this arrangement with a local person. This cost will be deducted from the security deposit if necessary. Please note that as from 1/1/19 there is a local French tax on rental properties of 3%. This will be added to the rental booking cost. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 06159007935MXMore

Many thanks for your review. There are 42 steps which are a little steep. There were no lifts in the 17th century when this apartment block was built. This can't be changed but we clearly state about the steps in the advert.
