“Nice View but Over the Train Line”

Even though the location is close to the town and beach it is even closer to the railway line at the entrance to the tunnel and overlooking the station. [ not shown in pictures ]
For guests with young children or if you are an older couple the steps which lead down via the side of the small apartment block are very dangerous!
At night it is very badly lit and even more dangerous with uneven steps which drop down to a basement level. [ again not shown in pictures? ]
The double bed has access to just one side and the second pull out bed in the living room is just ok for a guest for a night but not a week.
Having said all of the above the balcony is large and the apartment is well equipped if a little dated.
Overall we were disappointed as it didn't live up to the description and yet some reviews gave a different review so we would recommend that you ask for further details to include photos of the steps & railway line etc.
We have visited this area 6 times and would suggest that you choose carefully as some of the information needs to be checked before you pay your deposit. Enjoy France as we have done for over 20 years.

The photos on the website clearly show the railway line,which runs parallel to the coastline for many miles,and the nearby platform.The proximity of the station is also given in the description
With regard to the lighting on the stairs I am perplexed by this comment as the stairs are illuminated by three bulkhead lights operated by clearly visible switches.

We have stayed in Villefrance sur Mer on several occasions and this the best location, with a fantastic view. The apartment was small, well furnished and suited our needs. Easy walking to the old town and the seafront. Would definitely stay again.

I hesitate to review this, as we'll definitely be going back and I don't want it to be fully booked! Cheryl was extremely helpful with booking arrangements and throughout our stay; the grocery pack was good value and very welcome. The apartment is beautifully fitted out; ideal for a couple- with everything you need- it was like staying in someone's home. The terrace is as big again and has stunning views across the bay- it was a joy to wake up in the morning and see if any cruise ships had arrived, silently , in the night- the view was always different. The station was below, but any slight noise didn't worry usand it gave excellent facilities to explore nearby Monaco and Nice if you can bear to leave the terrace! The old town, with shops, restaurants, beach and waterfront is a short walk downhill. The WiFi worked well and without a problem. There were bats at dusk and Nightingales at night! Villefranche is a lovely, characterful old fishing village that we prefer to the bigger resorts nearby. The Villa Rothschild, the citadel and the fort are walkable and the food in local restaurants,especially the fish, is excellent. We didn't need a car. We can't wait to go back!

“Well appointed,well equipped,clean,quiet with stunning views”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had fabulous mornings greeting the sunrise with coffee on the terrace. No need of the a/c or heater. Made full use of cooking facilities having visited the market at Vintimilia, only a few stops away on the train. Kept up to date with English language news services on the TV. Downloaded books to kindle on wifi and loved the CDs and DVDs . Very stylish and practical use of the space, we are certainly much fitter now than we were at the start of the holiday, you can't avoid the steep slopes in Villefranche .
