Overview of Villa Franche

What Oliver loves…

  • The sea views at this villa in the French Riviera are spectacular, 3 balconies help you soak them in!
  • The train station is 100m away - getting to Nice or Monaco is a snap.
  • The intricately styled kitchen will make any chef feel like a king or queen.

What you should know…

  • The pool is just big enough for a dip, and can be heated at extra cost.
  • The roads in the village are quaint and narrow (a car is not necessary!)

Every bedroom overlooks the glorious blue bay of Villefranche-sur-mer in this French Riviera villa. You’ll continually find yourself drawn to the 3 balconies, where you can watch the sailboats bobbing on a sunny day (it’s almost always sunny at this south-facing property!). No expense has been spared in finishing this home, where oak and marble floors throughout lend an air of cool, relaxed luxury to your visit.

There’s a private heated swimming pool on the terrace, where you can lounge, arrange a barbecue, and simply revel in the view. But of course, you must go to the beach! The yellow sands sit only 130m from the villa. Even closer is the train station (100m), where you can quickly catch the train to Nice, 2 stops away.

All the amenities of the town of Villefranche-sur-mer are just a 4 minute walk from your holiday villa. Here you can rent a boat for a day on the water, or select one of the many restaurants clustered by the seaside. For fine dining on Cap Ferrat, head to the Michelin-starred Le Cap, where the terrace is “superb”. If the food is as lovely as your villa's views, you'll be glad indeed.

Map, Location & Local Information

Villa Franche is situated between Monaco (Monte Carlo) and Nice. This is considered the best part of the Cote d'Azur.

Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu are both a mere 3 minute drive away. The train station is only 100 meters away, with the train travelling all along the coast to Italy or back to Cannes and Marseilles.

Its South facing direction ensures it gets the sun all day, and the location is perfect. Only a 4 minute walk to the port of Villefranche (with no need to cross any roads). 130 metres from the beach and the train is nearby which is 2 stops from Nice and 6 stops to Monte Carlo.
-  Nice international airport is 8 Miles away.
-  There is a garage with room for one car, and there is ample free parking outside the apartment.

Guide to the Cote d'Azur, Cap Ferrat and Villefranche-sur-Mer
The Cote d'Azur is the area of south-east France that runs along the coast from Bandol, west of Toulon, to Menton and the Italian border in the east. Part of the coast is also known as the French Riviera. The Cote d'Azur therefore includes the southern edges of the Var and Riviera departments. The Mediterranean coast (Cote d'Azur / Riviera) of south-east France includes such renowned resorts as Nice, Antibes, Saint-Tropez and Cannes. Rich, exclusive and sophisticated.

The coastline here is very beautiful and the weather is more consistently sunny than any other part of France (corsica excepted). There are many small villages and towns along the coast and slightly inland where you will want to stop and explore.

Cap Ferrat is a peninsula into the Mediterranean just south of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Most of the peninsula is home to the very wealthy. Apart from walking along the (very beautiful) coast from St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, there are a couple of other reasons why you should visit. The first is the zoo and extensive parkland surrounding Les Cedres, the original villa to be built on the island (by King Leopold II)

The second is the Musee Ephrussi de Rothschild. Stunning even among the other villas in the area, the Villa of Beatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild (the 'Villa Ile de France') was built in the early part of the 20th century.

Both outside in the meticulously maintained gardens (separated into several parts, each with a different theme), and in the lavish interior of the villa, there are plenty of 'oooh' and 'aaah' moments as you come across yet more extraordinary items of art, furniture etc.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Cote d'Azur, close to the French border with Italy and 5 km from Nice.

The town is built on terraces up the hill that overlooks the azure blue sea and beautiful bay of the Mediterranean below. The town has been occupied since roman times, and there are some older buildings to be seen - you can't miss the 16th century citadel, the large walled building next to the water below the old town that is now home to a number of museums.

The big attraction in Villefranche-sur-Mer - seaside, harbour and beach apart - is the attractive old town with beautiful ancient houses lining the steep cobbled streets that wind up through the town.

One interesting feature that reminds you that you are in an ancient town - the streets that run along the hill (rather than up and down) pass through arches under the houses, creating a great atmosphere - the best known is called Rue Obscura.

There are also a couple of churches of interest eg Chapel Saint Pierre, featuring decoration by Cocteau, in the Villefranche-sur-Mer old town, before you ascend to the Mont Alban Fort for great views out across the sea and along the coast.

Perhaps equally interesting are the villas and 'palaces' of the rich and famous tucked away in the hills around the town.

Reviews for Villa Franche

Villa Franche Reviews


  • Spectacular villa

    Posted by anonymous on 26/11/2014

    We’ve visited Villa Franche 5 times now and stayed at Villa Soleia twice. This is a magical village and a spectacular villa. The villa is very well kept, well-furnished and equipped and well managed. You and your friends or family will have a spectacular trip staying here. Both times we’ve stayed we’ve had 12 people and there is plenty of room for all very comfortably. The 4 main house bedrooms are all ensuite and all have full on amazing sea views. They are all very private and comfortable. The nanny’s house beside the main house is a two story loft with a small living room and full bath on the main floor and the double bed up the spiral stairs. Open the windows and you have the same amazing views for about 90 degrees. Extremely private and provides your own living space to relax on your own but close enough to the main house to be part of everything. The separate apartment is located up a flight of stairs in the back part of the property. It is behind the house next door and is blocked from having the view, however, stepping 3 feet out of the apartment provides you about 70 degree sea view and 1 flight of stairs and 10 steps takes you to the main house terrace with full on view! This apartment is a 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, living room and full kitchen.

    I cannot say enough about the view and the swimming pool. Both are outstanding. Oh, and there is a great roof top where you can have drinks and enjoy the sunset. You will end up spending your afternoons lounging in the large pool and gazing at the Mediterranean and spending your evenings on the terrace overlooking the incredible village and sea view. If you choose to venture away from this great property, it is an easy thing to do. Villa Ouinade is a leisurely walk into the village where there are many great restaurants and shops. The walk home is an easy grade slightly up hill but be ready for the steps at the villa. It’s all worth it! The train station is super close and do not worry about the trains. They are quiet. You can get to anywhere along the coast for the day or a night out. There are 3 bus stops in Villa Ouinade and one is just about straight up from the villa. Extremely doable but not easy. Do not do it with luggage.

    So much to offer in this area and this is the place to stay!
