Philippe’s house is fantastic! His girlfriend (I didn’t catch her name) greeted us but we met him later. They were both very warm, friendly, and helpful. His girlfriend helped us find a parking place and gave us some local hints about Villefranche. She advised us in what parts of the apartment the wifi signal is strongest. Both of them spoke English well. Parking is not easy or cheap here and must be a challenge in high season. It’s a general situation and not specific to Philippe at all.
The apartment is right on the main street in the old part of town, which means restaurants are just steps away, as are the beach and the train station. It’s not terribly accessible by car and we wound up parking 10 minutes away. Unloading one’s luggage near the apartment seems very difficult. Plus, one would have to carry one’s bags up two windy flights of narrow stairs – so pack light!
The stairs, incidentally, are a bit unsafe. The bannisters are broken and can’t bear any weight. There is only light at the top and the bottom of the stairs, but not in the middle. I trust Philippe will be able to amend these issues soon.
A previous guest noted the apartment door didn’t lock. We found that it locked behind us automatically with no problem. The downstairs door to the street also locked and we were told no one else lived in the building anyway.
The apartment is full of charm and character. It is not a luxury apartment like some in the area that cost twice as much or more. It has everything you need and is comfortable and homey. I loved the bed. The upstairs has a balcony with an breathtaking view. There are great vistas of the bay from nearly every room. Philippe did a great job of cleaning the fridge for us. The bathroom is small but has tons of counter space and the shower is small but excellent. Overall, the apartment exceeded my expectations and I was delighted.
The host maintained good comms. The apartment itself is located in a very old building. There is a steep staircase leading to the third floor. The apartment does not have a working lock, it is only protected by the downstairs entry door. The apartment has two levels, one you see on pictures, the tv room/terrace/kitchen/bathroom and another with a small hallway and two bedrooms. The bedrooms are dark and very sparsely appointed. The view from the terrace is outstanding; it is very welcoming for relaxing/sightseeing. The kitchen area is small. Overall: the apartment is located in an excellent, very convenient area; the views from terrace are outstanding, but the apartment needs some love and maintenance.
Philippe's appartment is just the perfect location in the whole area between Nizza and Monaco. the view from the terrace is the best we have had in the whole holiday. It is close to everything including the Train station which is for sure the best way to visit Nizza or Monaco. Parking in the Bastille is probably only ok out of the main season. For us it worked nicely. Would have loved to stay longer, but is was already booked again. Thanks, Philippe.
Super netter Gastgeber, tolle Wohnung mit viel Charme, Terasse mit spektakulärem Blick auf das Meer. Zentral gelegen.
Fünf Minuten zum Strand oder zum Hafen. Umgeben von netten Restaurants.
Philippe is a great host with a beautiful French style apartment.
Would love to come back and stay there again! Highly recommend to everybody!
We had a lovely stay this apartment, and Phillipe our host was most gracious
Thanks for your comment Lisa!!
I'm back to villefranche I'm going to send you the small things you left at your departure.
Amazing apartment in a beutiful town on the best beach on the Riveria. The host Philippe and his girlfriend were really friendly and helpful and we felt totally at home (but better!) in the flat. I would highly recomend a visit to Villefranche-sur-Mer. Unforgettable place.
Thanks for your comment Nina!!
