Location and Map

This marker is for indication purpose only

Located in the heart of the old town and forming one entire floor of a building dating back to the 16th Century this is Mattie's own apartment which she has owned for nine years.

This apartment is unusual for the old town in that is has a large
terrace which overlooks the entire bay of Villefranche towards
Cap Ferrat.

Please note that the apartment is in an historical village and
​is on the second floor so there are stairs to climb. Please pack as
lightly as possible as the dress code is generally casual and you don't want to be carrying heavy bags up the stairs.

The view is really wonderful and if you like the character of the old together with the comfort of the new, then you will love it here.

You will find a small selection of the owner's paintings throughout the apartment giving the atmosphere of a home rather than an impersonal rental property. Guests come back time and time again. Please read our reviews to see how much guests have enjoyed their stay. There are always improvements being made and this year the second bathroom has been renovated and some new furniture added.

Air conditioning in the living room in case of any unusually hot weather.

The location is the best in town. Surrounded by restaurants and minutes from the sea front and beach. The train is seven minutes walk away. The street is a car free zone and parking is available close by in the public car park or the citadel.
However, a car is not essential as the public transport is excellent..

Artistes Tresor is 90 square metres.

Amenities include:- Washing machine and separate dryer. Dishwasher and microwave. Ironing board/iron and hair dryer. DVD and T.V. Wireless internet. T.V

A selection of DVDs are available to watch.

The Old Town: Harbour and Port
Dating from 1295, Villefranche-sur-Mer is rich in history and beauty. The village and area has a special atmosphere with all the warmth and charm of a fishing village from a bygone age.

The Old city, (dating from the 13th century) is well worth exploring with its narrow and picturesque streets with the facades of houses decorated in the 'trompe l'oeil' style.

Taking a stroll around the harbour and waterfront of Villefranche-sur-Mer rewards the effort with some suberb views and a journey through history.

Villefranche is is a deep water harbour which served as a base for the US Sixth Fleet for a time.

Tourist Office
Take a tour of the old town - it's well worth it!

Beach
Villefranche has its own lovely beach and the bay is beautiful for swimming. There are restaurants along the promenade serving wonderful food. My guests at Christmas last year took their roast dinner down and ate it on the beach as the weather can be lovely and famously warm and sunny on New Years day.


All amenities are within a few minutes' walking distance including shops, restaurants, beach and a village full of charm.

Nice

There is so much to do in this city that is only ten minutes away. The town has been and continues to be renewed and made more beautiful with modern trams reinstated to reduce pollution and traffic congestion. The central Place Massena is a vibrant beautiful place to sit and have a coffee.

This is a city by the sea with it's famous Promenade des Anglais and old town. Enjoy the daily flower market and discover more great and reasonably priced restaurants. There is also the superb summer jazz festival and carnival every year. The marvellous Chagal Museum and the Matisse museum are a must.

Review for Artistes Tresor:
"A little slice of Heaven"
Review Submitted: 16 August 2013 Date of Stay: August 2013
"What a little gem Artistes Tresor is! My family (me plus my husband and three teenage sons) stayed here for a week and we couldn't have been more comfortable. We really felt like part of the community . The apartment is right in the old town on the second floor of an old building with great views over the bay. We spent hours sitting on the lovely little balcony happily watching the boats coming in and out of the bay. Tip: bring binoculars for better spying!
It was an easy stroll to all the restaurants in the town and the little supermarket is almost next door! The beach is also an easy stroll along the harbour wall. And the train station is a five minute walk down the hill and gives access to lots of interesting places up and down the coast - we made day trips to Eze and Ventimiglia in Italy.
The apartment is very comfortable and immaculately clean and felt like a home from home. The owner has a policy of leaving things that other guests have left so the kitchen had salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee, oil, vinegar, washing up liquid, dishwasher tabs and even some foodstuffs like rice and pasta etc. I have rented lots of properties and i have never seen this before - it made such a difference not to have to go out and buy all these things!
I cannot recommend Artistes Tresor highly enough!"

Visited by one of our team - highly recommended.

    Sue, the property manager, met us from our taxi and showed us to the apartment and gave us tips on what to do and where to eat etc. and even booked a taxi for one of our sons who had to leave earlier than us - she couldn't have been more charming or helpful.
    I cannot recommend Artiste's Trésor highly enough! 
     
                                                            
     
     
     
     
     
    The location of this apartment is such that, through one door of the apartment building access to l'Institut is just steps away, while through another lower door, the village is just a five minute walk. I have lived here for 4 weeks and I could not give a higher recommendation. As I have described the apartment to others, it feels immediately as if you are staying in the home of a friend. The terrace is rich with flowers and comfortable chairs and a table to prepare your homework, drink a glass of wine and/or sit down for dinner, and the view is as the French would say, 'super'. The luxuries of this apartment I find, are: the silent but wonderful ceiling fan in the bedroom which allows for a cool and mosquito free night's sleep; the beautifully renovated bathroom equipped with a tub for soaking; a rain shower and a hand-held shower; the cleanliness of the apartment; the quietness of being just slightly off of the main village road which stays busy until all hours of the night; the constant breeze from being on the hillside (which isn't apparent in the village) that cools the apartment in the evening; the beautiful morning sunshine on the terrace with coffee before class; and the short walk home - just two blocks - after a late dinner or a night out with drinks in the village. Sue, the owner of the apartment, is very welcoming and nice and lives close by. She has been very helpful throughout my stay with all of my questions about Villefranche, transport, restaurants, sights, etc... I hope that I might come every year to Villefranche for study and that I will always be able to stay in this apartment.
     
                                                                                                          
     
     
     
     
    Your 500 sq. ft. apartment with a 200 sq. ft. balcony overlooking the Mediterranean has it all! I look forward to returning next spring.
