Villefranche-sur-Mer, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
This chic, comfortable studio, just steps from the glorious Mediterranean, is in the heart of the ancient village. It offers the rare opportunity to feel and live like a local. During your stay, the woman at the fragrant boulangerie, the gentleman at the boucherie, and elderly couple at the epicier vert & fish stand will help you experience the cultural and epicurean pleasures of the south of France and, upon arriving 'home', the separate, well-equipped kitchen, provides you with a lovely place to turn your market finds into gourmet meals.
The big shuttered windows filling the space with light, gracious living room, and sparkling, spacious bathroom contribute to the comfort and ambience of the flat. The well-done 2012 renovations have retained the original high ceilings and all the charm of this delightful getaway.

My sister and I stayed here for a bit of R&R and I can't say enough good about the flat, the owners, the lovely Suzanne - the manager who greeted us warmly upon our arrival and made sure we knew she was available...

My wife and I stayed here for a week and enjoyed every minute. It is perfectly located in the heart of the old town. The apartment has everything needed in a very well thought out layout. The owners also kindly allowed the use of beach towels, snorkels etc., which is a real bonus. We were met on arrival by Suzanne,...

This is a total gem of a studio on the best street in the old town (actually a wide, cobblestone staircase) in Villefranche sur Mer, close to bistros, restaurants, the best bakery in Villefranche, shopping, and the famous 100 bus that goes all along the Cote d'Azur. The studio is very quiet, full of light, comfortable and attractive. Though the...

About the neighborhood
Perfectly situated on the beautiful bay of Villefranche, this charming fishing village offers visitors an opportunity to step away from the rush and stress of modern existence and into a simpler past, while retaining easy access to world-class art and culture, shopping and dining, and all things aquatic. Our sweet studio flat is located in the heart of the old village...no cars, trucks, buses or motos...just the sound of footsteps on the ancient brick and stone walkways that wind their way through this beguiling town. Just steps away from the lovely port, sandy beaches, and the train station, the flat is the ideal hide-away from which to enjoy the myriad joys of the Mediterranean life-style.Very convenient to the Institute of French.
