We loved the condo. We found it to be the perfect location for access to the beach and the train. From our ride, arranged by Pat, to the condo provided by Julien, the 10 days we stayed, and our arranged ride back to Nice, it couldn't have been better. Of our 3 week adventure to Europe (from the US), it was by far our favorite experience. The condo was nicely furnished, the balcony was awesome and it was everything we hoped for and read about. Villefranche-sur-Mer is a lovely spot and some day we would love to return.
Spent a long weekend here with friends - perfect location - walked, bussed, trained to all the fantastic places around Villefranche, and then sat on the balcony, watching the world go by, before strolling into town for dinner.
Apartment was beautifully presented and had everything we could ever have needed ... and more! Spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished.
I have no idea who the whinging Australian was but this apartment is a little piece of heaven. From the minute you walk through the door and see that spectacular view of the bay to when you notice the gorgeous toiletries in the shower rooms, the glossy kitchen equipped with everything you could ever imagine needing and the fabulous art work adorning the walls you know you are somewhere very special! You are near the station which is very convenient for travelling to Nice, Monaco, Ventimiglia or Beaulieu where the have fantastic food market! Sitting on the balcony with a bottle of rose, a fresh baguette and some cheese at sunset is pure bliss!!!
When George opened the front door of the apartment we were taken aback by the view of Villefranche bay, it really is something to behold! When you take yourself away from the balcony, you will find that this beautiful apartment has everything, tastefully decorated and kitted out with everything you could possibly need, topped off with a very thoughtful welcome pack from perfect hosts. Thank you George and Pat for a wonderful stay!

I really am gobsmacked by the reviews of this so called "WOW" place. Don't be deceived by the pictures.The picture looking out front balcony is taken well inside the apartment.When you are on the balcony the beautiful view is spoilt by a large rusty shed to the left an delapidated building to the right,a maze of electric cables at eye level and railway rubbish on the ground between the two buildings,not what you call an ambient scene which is a real shame as Villefranche is a beautiful place.And the other pictures are certainly not you get in person.On arrival the fridge had pieces of old lettuce leaves in the draw and it smelt,you had to wear shoes as the floors were filthy,the main shower had like wooden slats on the floor which were mildewy and slimmey.,they preferred us not to use main toilet as it was a bit dodgy and to use the other one.The whole apartment was dirty and generally not well kept.This place is certainly not worth the money.We only stayed the first night and requested the balance we paid on arrival to be refunded which the managers had no hesitation in doing immediately.On departure they said they would discuss the deposit we had paid and upon arrival home i have emailed them 5 times for a refund with no response.This place totally spoilt the rest of our holiday .
