“In one word, this place is EXCEPTIONAL!”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

If you have the opportunity to stay here...DO IT! And, stay as long as you can! We were only suppose to stay here for 2 nights, and ended up staying for 6 nights because it was SO amazing! The view is UNREAL. The location is PERFECT. The apartment itself is older, but it has everything you need and is very clean and quiet. We have been traveling through Europe for 2 months and have stayed in all apartment rentals, and this has been our FAVORITE! The beach is a 1 min walk down the water. You can swim right in front of the apartment, off the sea wall. You can fish right outside your door. There are boats to rent 30 seconds away. There are tons of restaurants within a 1 minute walk. There is a great grocery store (Casino Grocery) 3 min walk away. EVERYTHING IS SERIOUSLY PERFECT!

“Great Place”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The unit is clean & decorated nicely. The views are fantastic. You can open the windows & hear the waves on the beach. The shower is small, about 2.5' x 2.5'. The manager Liddie who owns a shop below the apartment is very nice & helpful.
If you are a larger person it may be a bit tight. If you have a car parking will be an issue. To park in the lots is 1.80 euro an hour including overnight. There is parking on the street but good luck finding a spot.
Would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect apartment in a lovely place”

I stayed in number 5 which is owned by the same lady. The apartment was perfect. It had everything we needed and had an added bonus of beautiful views over the bay. It was a good size and had everything needed for self catering. It was clean and had wifi.
In the morning it was wonderful to sit on the balcony with a coffee watching the world go by. At night it was nice to sit in bed with the balcony shutters open looking out onto the bay.
The apartment is near everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The train station, the beach, lovely restaurants and lovely walks.
The lady who owns the apartment owns quite a few in the block and she was very good at getting back to emails and was very helpful when we thought we might have to stay an extra day due to a train strike.
I can't wait to go back to Villefranche sur mer and L'etoile du Matin.

“great view”

this appartment has the most spectacular views. it overlooks the whole bay and although it is above shops and restaurants it is very quiet and peaceful. The owner was kind enough to let our dog stay and he is a very large german shepherd(our dog , not the owner). The only reason i am not giving it 5 rating is that although facilities are ok, it could be updated, i.e outside furniture and kitchen. All in all we loved it here though.

“Simply the Best”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

You are reading this because you are considering this studio apartment for your stay on the French Riviera – well, if you are a couple and you wish to stay in the best value accommodation in one of the best places in the world, look no further.
We have stayed in No 7 for the past 3 years and have already booked for next year. Our regular month long vacations in Europe (from Australia) will now always include at least 2 weeks in this superb studio apartment -we love it.
Apartment 7 is one of eight in a 1930’s(?) building all with balconies overlooking the beautiful bay of Villefranche sur Mer, which is literary only 20m from the front door. Despite its small size, the studio is perfect for a holidaying couple – it would be very tight with 3 people, but the owner also lets out No 4 and No 8.
Furnishings are simple – what you see in the photos is what you get. What you don’t see are plenty of cupboard space in the main room and in the very good ensuite, reverse cycle air-conditioning, beach umbrellas and mats (very handy for the wonderful SANDY beach only 500m away), well appointed kitchen and fast Wi-fi (however this year was not as good as last year).
Put simply, we love this place so much that we wouldn’t go to Europe without staying here - the people are friendly, the studio is comfortable, the village is quite and the surrounds are never ending.
There is a handy supermarket in the old town, you can cook you own meals (hob and microwave), you can travel widely and cheaply. The no 80 bus passes the front door (suggest a 7 day pass) and connects with the 100 (Nice, Monaco and Menton), 82 (Eze) etc. and the rail station is only 300m away – perfect. When you do “eat out”, there are about 20 good restaurants/cafes in the old town area to choose from - suggest you see Ben at Les Garcons and plenty of bars – try Chez Net.
Apart from above, other places which can be easily visted include Cannes, Antibes and Ventimiglia (by train), St Paul de Vence, Cap d’Ail and La Turbie (by bus) and of course walk to Beaulieu, St Jean and cap Ferrat (past Nellcote).
Apart from the great views from the balcony and the very convenient location this studio has a wonderful and hard to explain "feeling" about it. It is always sad to leave but there is next year!!
Tina Turner sang "simply the best" she should know, she owns a house up the hill.

Just recently stayed in unit number 8 for the first week in June. The location is none better than any unit in this lovely town. However the unit had not been adequately cleaned and the furniture was like a college dormatory. With a little investment in bedding and cleaning this would help greatly. The town and location near the train station makes day trips a snap. The wifi works only at certain times of the day, issues which can be fixed easily. Margarite has a beautiful property she needs a little more experience as a property renter.
