Welcome to the most romantic and beautiful little gem in Villefranche Sur Mer!

We look forward to meet you!
Hello Airbnb friends!
For March: It is possible to stay at my place with the b&b option - as in you share the apartment with me.

Until Mid-April it is possible to rent the whole apt to yourself or do the b&b option.
For May and June please contact me,
it will be possible to rent the whole apartment for
450 euros/week or if you want to stay longer, let's get a good deal going!
July and August: Let me get back to you as I am trying to sell this wonderful apartment.
A beautiful and tranquil apartment situated 7 minutes from the heart of Nice & 15 minutes to Monaco.
Villefranche Sur Mer is right on the sea -- the studio apartment is a 5 minute walk to beaches, hidden coves and bays, delicious restaurants, two grocery markets, a farmers market, and a flea market in the old town.
It is considered the most picturesque village/town on the cote d'azur and has a truly unique feel to the place.
Nice is just around the corner, 7 minutes by train or 10 minutes with the local bus down to the port and the old town.
Villefranche sur Mer is very safe and friendly.
It gives you the option to both enjoy the busy city life of Nice and also live the "Cote d'Azur Dream" hanging out in Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu, Eze and Monaco.
Italy is not far either, the Friday market in Ventimiglia is on the same train line that passes Villefranche.
The movie "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" is filmen in Villefranche.
Also one of the Bond movies has scenes from the Villefranche port.
But most of all, kick back, enjoy nice days in the sun and rose wine in my garden under the start of the Cote d'Azur!
BELOW IS INFO FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS / ME HOSTING:
You'd be sharing the space with me and my friendly dog Tommy, and have an open-air mezzanine with a queen-sized bed and luggage space to yourself.
The apartment is small, but has a lovely, quiet garden, and the way that the space is partitioned lends it peace and privacy.
PLEASE NOTE that the mezzanine is a part of the living room, and that in case of rain or cold weather i will be sleeping on the sofa bed below!
However the mezzanine lends to a lot of privacy!
(I sleep in the garden, which may sound un-usual, but it all has worked out fine and I really like to look at the stars at night!)
I am a multilingual, friendly female, but I respect your privacy and personal space. I know the area well, having lived in Nice before, and would be happy to help you get around. I have a car and am happy to drive you to the airport, to Italy or other nearby places for a fee. I speak Italian, English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Swedish, and am currently learning German.
Tommy is a quiet, friendly guy who mostly keeps to himself unless petted or tempted by a long walk.
We have a kitchen for making sandwiches or a quick meal, a lovely bathroom, a garden space for painting, working, eating, or relaxing, there is WI-FI here but also a lot of internet cafes nearby. A parking lot is close by for those arriving by car.
Small to medium sized friendly and well behaved dogs welcome, 5 euros/day.
Yes. Bus to Nice and Monaco around the corner and train 10 min walk away.

We had a great time staying at Monique's place. Despite the fact she was away, her friend Stella came to meet us to give us the keys and go through everything we needed to know. The check-in process was very smooth. Monique also had a bottle of wine and nibbles waiting for us which was also a lovely touch. The apartment is a good size for two people. The bed is comfortable and the living area felt spacious as it opened out into a lovely courtyard. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom large. The apartment is located in a very convenient location both to town and the bus station. I would highly recommend this airbnb.
Had the most perfect week in the south of France, staying with Monique and Tommy. Monique went above and beyond to make our stay special, showing us round the local area and recommending the best things to do and see. Monique is a wonderful host, we enjoyed sharing stories and spending time with her. She did everything within her power to make us feel at ease. We hope to have the opportunity to visit it again!
Monique & Tommy were excellent hosts. Monique is a lovely person & we enjoyed our stay at her place. We felt relaxed and at home during our stay. The flat was in an excellent location and easy to get to Nice, Antibes, Cannes & Monaco from the Train station near by. This place is great for 1 or 2 people who are ok with sharing their space as it is not a very private set up, the sleeping arrangement is a studio/mezzanine set up and Monique sleeps outside, it is quite a small space. However she was always up and out of the flat before we woke up and tried to give us as much privacy as possible. Overall was a pleasure spending time in Monique & Tommy's home. :)
Monique was a great host and became a friend. She is very friendly and it's easy to share a space and get along with her. She has some great suggestions around sights and activities in the area and is very helpful. The apartment is very clean, cute, and cosy and in a great location for exploring the Côte d'Azur!
When we arrived the first day, a nice bottle of rose and some snacks were waiting for us! The place is small, but cosy and well situated, next to the beach and the old village of Villefranche. Also Nice is a busdrive of 5 minutes away, with the busstop just around the corner. It is clean, really French atmosphere and has wifi. We rented it when Monique wasn't present, due to a stay in Spain, so we had the appartment for ourselfs. As a couple very much in love (-; this was perfect! But we asked ourselfs how we would act when Monique would have stayed with us in the same little space... Even when she sleeps outside, because that's still very near the space we slept. I think this is perfect for friends or a traveller alone when Monique is present. And I think, reading the other reviews, that Monique is a wonderfull person and host, easy to be around with. So, if you are a couple, just be aware that there isn't a room apart. If you are ok with that, it's the most perfect place to stay!
Finally, the communication by e-mail between us and Monique was quick and al the information that was needed, was brought to us in a very nice way.
We really enjoyed our stay at Monique's flat and had most meals in the shady garden. Very near all the Villefranche shops, beaches, buses to Nice and Monaco and about 10 mins from train station. Superfast wifi as well!
C 'est vraiment un endroit étonnant et une rencontre magique avec monique et son chien. C'est pas bien grand mais on se sent bien accueilli. La baie de Villefranche est splendide et seulement à 2 minutes. Il y a plein de commodités et un accès facile à nice, Monique a sillonné la planète, elle sait faire découvrir et elle est un esprit libre sur cette planète. Voila je ne saurai que vous recommander cet endroit et son hote. Merci encore
Monique very much wants to provide you the BNB experience. She was very sweet and helpful and wants to make you as comfortable as possible. She offered to fetch me at the bus stop or train station. Her willingness to share snacks, a glass of wine or make you a meal really puts you at ease. She took the time to give me a tour of the surrounding villages and we went to a cozy bar. I feel I made a friend. My visit occurred in January so the ideal time to visit is when the weather is warmer due to lack of central heating. The place is tight on space so be sure you like dogs and you are organized.
Monique was a wonderful host. I felt like I spent a week with new friends instead of merely renting a room. Tommy is as equally charming, I've never met a more "gentlemanly" canine.
Truly, the two of them made me feel very welcome. Monique went above and beyond as a host, sharing (website hidden), wine, pasta, as well as providing reccommendations and rides to and from the train station! Above all, it was marvelous to spend time with someone so intelligent, gracious, creative and knowledgeable about the area.
Be sure to ask her about the most charming place on the Riviera! Even in the pouring rain, it was incredible! Tommy's story is not to be missed either!
Monique's home is well-situated in Villefranche : close to the train station and a bus stop for day trips to Cap Ferrat, Nice, Cannes, Monaco, Antibes, anywhere you want to go on the French Riviera. Villefranche itself was lovely and a welcome change from the touristy bustle of the larger cities.
Unforgettable holidays! Me and my friend Veronika were cordially received and Monique and her lovely dog even gave us
the feeling to be welcome at the beginning of our stay. I appreciated particullary the e-mail conversation between me and Monique befor our stay, so we arrived really prepared (it was our first experience with airbnb). Monique and Tommy share the flat with you, but there's still enough privacy. The location of the apartment is absolutely perfect!
The train and bus station is really close and it takes just few minutes to go to Nice, Monaco or Ventimiglia in Italy. The village is so cute with an italian flair and so many details for the eyes. Monique was our private guide of the city. That was really cool and helpful! :) She's such a great person! Thanks for all!
