Outside Space

Here is where you will spend your time, a 14m2 terrace perched on this idyllic hillside and ideal for soaking in the surroundings. Optimum Zen, for dozing, reading, sitting back and watching the sunrise. There is also a smaller terrace off the guest bedroom and access to the residents’ swimming pool which also benefits from the spectacular view.

The pool is open from May – October. The pool is unheated.


The master bedroom has large sliding French windows, which open onto the vast terrace; closed or open your gaze will be drawn out across the bay towards Cap Ferrat across the glistening azure waters. Morning, noon or night there is no tiring of this view. A double mattress (140×200), electric shutters, reversible AC, bedside reading lamps plus spotlights all combine to encourage a perfect night’s sleep whatever the season. There is also a large wardrobe and desk for your holiday journal. The twin guest bedroom (mattress’s 80×200 x 2) also has a splendid view, bedside tables and a smaller terrace with table and deckchairs.


There are two sparkling white bathrooms to choose from. One has a bathtub for extra relaxation, shower fitting and basin with storage, the second has a shower cubicle, bowl basin and toilet.

Living area

Summer or winter this is the ideal room to enjoy the superb views. Floor to ceiling windows make up one side of the room, a living panorama of the Côte d’Azur! Sit back on the large L-shaped sofa and drink it all in. For faster action there is also a smart TV, with Netflix, a blue-tooth Bose speaker for music and of course wifi.

Kitchen and dining area

Designed to make the most of the view, the open plan kitchen-living-dining room is ideal for stay-at-home meals with a dining table to seat six. The corner kitchen keeps the chef involved in what’s going on, and has a triple hob, microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee maker. A dishwasher makes things easy, and there is a washing machine, iron and clothes-horse to take care of your laundry needs.


Villefranche is a haven of tranquillity just outside Nice with a small but bustling central marketplace and easy beach access. A glorious place to visit in both the busy summer months or the more peaceful winter season. A short drive, bus or train ride, or a glorious coastal footpath connects you to Nice but there are plenty of restaurants, bars, boutiques and even an outdoor summer cinema for local entertainment. The beaches are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, paddle boarding or whatever water-sport takes your fancy, and are welcoming for people of all ages.

Public Transport

Choosing to use public transport is extremely convenient and can avoid some of the summer congestion. Local buses pass in both directions along the main road, Bld Princesse Grace de Monaco, into the centre of Nice and east towards Monaco and Menton – This is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment. The train station is a beautiful 20-minute walk through the centre of Villefranche and will cut out traffic jams in both directions.


There is street parking available in Villefranche, it can get crowded on the narrow winding streets —especially in the summer months, but our guests have never had an issue before! Parking Wilson is the closest car park, around a 15-minute walk. Check  

By Car: Closest parking: along the street but depending on free space.

excellent location
Posted on: 09/07/2019

“Excellent location with sea views, walking distance to amenities and the beach etc. Super quiet and clean, the apartment has been recently done up and has a nice “new” feel to it – would definitely return!”

Would stay here again!

“Lovely clean flat, well located with amazing views of the bay! 5 min walk from the supermarket and 10 min walk to the sea. Communication and check-in were smooth and easy. Would stay here again!”

Place to call home

“Laura’s place is a super find and a place to call home in the heart of Villefranche. With the little shops and outstanding boulangerie a short walk up the road and access to lovely restaurants and beaches at both ends of the town as well as the train station which easily brings you to Nice, Monaco, or even Italy, you can not go wrong. As we had been on the hoof for a few days Laura’s place was a superb chill out zone with stunning views from its hillside perch where we boat watched and enjoyed the AC, pool, well chosen furniture and stylish vibe. The apartment and grounds are kept up beautifully and my family and I would highly recommend it. Laura was friendly,helpful, and made us feel welcome with a nice bottle of Rose and organic chips. Bonne Vacances!”

5 star stay

The views are outstanding
Posted on: 25/09/2019

What a fantastic place this is! I’ve been coming to the area for over 20 years, and this has been one of my favourite places that I’ve stayed in. The views are outstanding, and to be fair I could have happily stayed all week-end just looking at boats. The flat itself is very classily done out, very clean, lovely comfortable beds. Perfect sized kitchen, with another amazing view whilst you washed up! The block itself is also very well looked after and tidy. What was also very nice though, is that the block is about a 10 minute stroll from the town itself, so at night it was very quiet. And most of the walk in to the town is a beautiful stroll along the sea. 5 mins up to the shops for croissants, and 10 mins to the lovely secluded beach at La Darse. We will be back!

Very nice flat indeed, very posh

Very nice flat indeed, very posh. Beautiful view over the bay, easy to get in to town, some shops up the road. Slept really well. Loved being at the pool looking out over the sea and Cap Ferrat. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This will become an annual retreat
Posted on: 25/09/2019

My best friend and I treated ourselves with a long-overdue escape in celebration of milestone birthdays. Wow, this was special. There is a spectacular 180 degrees views of calm water, magnificent boats, gorgeous scenery and wonderful architecture.  We were soon sipping a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking beautiful Villefranche Sur Mer, the morning’s school run a distant memory!!   The apartment is clean, modern and very tastefully decorated, mixing comfort and style in equal measure.  Both bedrooms and the living area are filled with natural light and have uninterrupted views. The floorplan is divided up perfectly and it the apartment feels spacious, bright, remote and quiet.  We ate out as well as cooked at home, though it is advised to check the opening times to the local mini-marts, they are not open 24/7 in Villefranche!!  A perfect place to relax and watch the super yachts come and go, as well as to take a stroll and explore the local market, quaint streets, little beaches and the amazing restaurants.  This will become an annual retreat!  I would highly recommend.

The apartment is spotless

“Lovely apartment which is close to beach, shops and transport for train and bus. The apartment is spotless and very well appointed with TV, Bluetooth speaker and kitchen equipment including a coffee maker. The furniture is lovely and the view and balcony are amazing. Great place to stay outside of nice and great for exploring towards Italy. Great hosts with quick and easy communication and being met at the apartment and run through everything was a big bonus. Highly recommended.”

A beautiful apartment filled with light and views
Posted on: 30/01/2020

A beautiful apartment filled with light and views across to Saint Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the large balcony is ideal to soak it all in. The kitchen has a dishwasher, ideal to avoid washing up when you should be enjoying the Med instead. Comfortable beds makes this a perfect stay in a beautiful part of the world. Thanks for a wonderful stay, I’ll be back!
