We can`t wait to return!
We`re a family of four who were fortunate enough to stay in this lovely apartment for two weeks in August 2013. The location is ideal - close to the beach, train station and village. It is comfortably furnished and the views are absolutely stunning. A definite highlight of our vacation was sitting on the balcony taking in the view.

The views are breathtaking
My husband, my children aged 7 and 9 and myself stayed in this recently renovated apartment in Villefranche at end of July. We had a marvelous time. I would highly recommend this apartment for a perfect holiday and we will definitely be returning to it again. The apartment is centrally located with easy access to supermarket, ATM and other convenience shops. The apartment is very spacious and the view breathtaking.
The beach is only a few minutes walk from the apartment. There are plenty of great restaurants to choose from - all within walking distance.
