Jardins de Villefranche - Villefranche-sur-Mer Holicay Rentals


Home Description

An idyllic place to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing getaway from it all, but within easy reach of all the delights of the Cote d'Azur. Located between the Basse and Moyenne Corniche in a beautifully landscaped garden setting, within a secure and highly sought after block, the apartment provides panoramic views over the wide sweep from Beaulieu and Cap Ferrat to Villefranche and Mount Boron. Inside, this spacious, light and bright apartment is appointed with top of the range Italian furniture and fixtures, and has tiled or marble floors throughout. From a large terrace and from each of the living rooms there are splendid views over Villefranche and its surroundings. While a car is advisable, for those who enjoy walking there are pleasant footpaths leading down to the waterfront of Villefranche with its restaurants, bars, beaches, etc and up to the local shops of Col de Villefranche. There is easy bus and train access to nearby Eze, Monaco and Nice and to more distant destinations such as Menton, Antibes and Cannes.

The French Riviera - Cote d'Azur region
The Cote d'Azur retains all of its long recognised allure, combining modern luxury with belle epoch and old world charm. Steep mountains fall precipitously into deep and enticing azur seas that provide a haven for all forms of watersports and attract yachts of all sizes description. When people think of the Riviera it is probably the view over the rade of Villefranche sur Mer, with St Jean Cap Ferrat on one side and Cap Nice on the other, that immediately springs to mind. People travelling the Basse or Moyenne Cornich are compelled to stop and take in the beauty of the outlook, also enjoyed from the apartment. Villefranche has safe and clean beaches with any number of splendid restaurants having tables at which you can almost get your feet wet in the gently lapping waves. It is a medieval town with a world famous covered street. From Nice there is easy access to the winter sports facilities at the popular ski resort of Isola. Mountain and coastal walks provide a wonderful way to explore this region that must still rank as one the most beautiful in Europe and the world.

Villefranche sur Mer has from the 2nd century BC oscillated between French and Italian control. Its architecture reflects this rich and varied history, as does its culture and cuisine. It has one of the most sheltered natural harbours on the south coast of France and consequently provides a popular stopping off point for visiting cruise ships and shelter for visiting yachtmen, which is how I first discovered its charm. There are regular fruit and vegetable markets, and antique fairs, in Villefranche and in many of the nearby villages and towns such as Beaulieu, St Jean, Nice and Menton. There are locally almost continuous cultural events, festivals and sporting events and in close proximity the prestigious attractions of the Canne Film Festival, the Menton Music Festival and the Monaco Grand Prix. It is just a short bus or car journey to the popular winter skiing grounds at Isola. The waterfront at Villefranche provides a popular venue for strolls along the promenade where the quayside restaurants mingle with the colours of local fishing boats and nets. Little wonder it continues to be a favourite with so many artists, writers and other discerning aesthetes.
