What Past Guests Are Saying
A great stay, everything was thought of and the apartment was a
My husband and I are in our sixties.Muriel was kindness itself and picked us up from the train station. Everything we needed was supplied plus extras. We had no need to rush out and do a grocery shop. The apartment is in a great position with a delightful view. It is well appointed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay there. Muriel has a great book filled with where to go and where to eat. We tried many of the restaurants and each one lived up to expectations. The apartment is only a short bus ride from Monaco, Nice and Cannes, a great place to spend time and relax.
High quality apartment with great views
My wife and I stayed for four nights in early June. The apartment has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and it exceeded our expectations based on the photos. We didnt have a car and walked to/from Villefranche which is about 10-15 mins and steep but perfectly do-able if you are mobile. Parking is possible on the road outside but we were pleasantly surprised at the frequency and cost (1 euro per single journey) of the local bus service which stops within a couple of minutes walk. The rail station is also within 10 minutes walk giving access to Monaco, Nice and beyond. Muriel was on hand at our arrival and very helpful. Altogether highly recommended.
Perfect place for vacation.
Very nice and cozy apartment. Amazing view from terrace to sea. Rooms and bathroom is clean and comfortable, especially very good equipped kitchen. Comfortable car parking on site. Old town, beach, traditional markets and shops is situated nearby. Very friendly and helpful property manager.
Wonderful relaxing stay
We had a brilliant week in Villefranche. We could not fault anything with the accommodation. It is bright and modern and fully equipped with everything you need. We were able to cook in some nights and wander down to the village on others. There is a gorgeous view from the balcony & bedroom. There is also a bus at the end of the road that will bring you into Nice or Monaco. It was really handy for getting around. The beach in Villefranche is much nicer then in Nice as its sandy and not full of rocks. I'd highly recommend a stay here!
A wonderful unforgetable visit to Villefranche
This apartment in Villefranche has all of the amenities that make for a great holiday. It was newly renovated with a fully equipped kitchen. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Having breakfast on the patio was an experience that I will always remember - the panorama of the Mediteranean with the Villefranche harbor in the foreground is a wonderful memory. The apartment is well situated, within walking distance of the town and beach and convenient to bus and train services to Nice and Monte Carlo. I hope to return and will most certainly rent this apartment again.
The perfect retreat, with a breathtaking Vista .
The moment we entered the well kept gardens, and turned the key to the apartment we felt at home.
The interior of apartment Leopold II was tasteful and elegant, every room had a fresh and welcoming feel and provided ample accommodation for me and my three adult companions.
The pinnacle of our day was throwing the colonial shutters open and unwinding on the Terrace with a cold glass of Cava after a relaxing day on the local beach in Villefranche, and bathing in the evening sun absorbing the beautiful views of Cap Ferrat and the glistening cote d'azur.
Our days were filled with adventure and relaxation, the apartment is quite conveniently located just a short stroll from a bus stop that services the center of Nice and continues on to Monaco Ville.
The shopping in Nice was out of this world, from high end boutiques to antiques days could be spent browsing.
The old town also provided unlimited choice in regards to eating out, all fabulous establishments. Night life varies from authentic in Nice to Glitz in Monaco.
Me friends and I had a particular soft spot for near-by Monaco, the cafe culture was amazing the Japaneese gardens were enchanting and the glamour of the marina and Casino were just unsurpassed!
Keeping it local Villefranche is a beautiful quaint and intriguing town, the restaurant's were fabulous and provided top quality meals at a reasonable price, elegant bars line the promenade in the town where we sipped cocktails and watched the local fishermen land their daily catch.
The beach was located at the end of the promenade, which accommodated locals and sun seekers alike, it never felt crowded, and the water was always crystal clear and pleasantly refreshing, much like our holiday in this wonderful apartment.
I would absolutely recommend staying in apartment Leopold II as the residence really did compliment and enhance it's infamous location .
Will defiantly return to this beautiful apartment ,we found a genuine hidden gem.!
Excellent apartment Holiday in Villefranche
Recently our family holidayed for two weeks at the above apartment. We had a most enjoyable time and the apartment was excellent. It was spacious, comfortable and the furnishings were quite luxurious. From its balcony we had a view to die for, looking out over the bay of Villefranche framed as it is by a typical Riviera landscape. Cruise ships and pleasure craft in the bay provided a very pleasant backdrop for post dinner drinks on the balcony.
The local sandy beach is a five minute walk along a pedestrian-only pathway and there are a range of coastal walking routes nearby just waiting to be explored. Villefranche has many good restaurants and we had access to a range of water sport activities in the harbour.
It proved an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area. In addition to Nice we visited Monte Carlo, Antibes, Cannes and Grasse which is famous for its perfumes. We also did a day trip to Genoa to get a flavour of Italy. We got to all of these places by public transport and there are excellent bus and rail connections within walking distance of the apartment.
In short we had a superb holiday and a return visit early in 2012 is already planned.
It is a great place to stay. Beautiful area with a few neibour. The home is clean and bright. The beach is 10 minutes by walk. really worth it.
