Villefranche-sur-Mer, French Riviera - Cote d'Azur, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to offer this beautiful apartment 'Bella Vista' which is owned by one of the famous families of Villefranche sur Mer.
There is history linked to this apartment and you can feel or imagine it once you are inside. This is surely one of the loveliest and most spacious apartments in the old town. Benefiting from being right on the quayside where all the action is and yet a surprisingly peaceful haven where you will feel immediately at home.....

Enter the first floor of the apartment and you will be greeted by a classy, typically french apartment, decorated in traditional style and adorned with colourful paintings by local artists. The view is directly over the bay overlooking possibly one of the most beautiful views on the Riviera which has been famously used as a backdrop in s...

The apartment totally met our expectations. There was a nice living room with an eating area and two separate bedrooms and two bathrooms. Very safe...

Stayed in Bella Vista for 2 truly wonderful weeks with my wife and youngest daughter (age 13). The apartment couldn't be better positioned or equipped. And waking up to those glorious views every morning was just magical especially watching the sun rise over St. Jean Cap Ferrat. Beautiful! Another pleasant surprise for us was that when you close the shutters...

About the neighbourhood
Villefranche is a well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay from their villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 mins away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten mins away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 mins. The village of Eze is 20 mins by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes...
Getting around
It is really easy with a choice of busses or the train.
It is 10 minutes to Nice from the bus or about 30 minutes to Monday whereas the train is 10 minutes to Nice or Monaco. The train also goes all along the coast with Italy or Cannes 40 Minutes away in either direction...
Car not needed
How to get there
