About Bella Vista Apartment
We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to offer this beautiful apartment 'Bella Vista' which is owned by one of the famous families of Villefranche. There is history linked to this apartment and you can feel or imagine it as soon as you enter. This is surely one of the loveliest and most spacious apartments in the old town. Benefiting from being right on the quayside yet surprisingly peaceful inside.....
Imagine sitting on the balcony enjoying an aperitif and then popping outside for a lovely dinner in the many restaurants. A lovely walk along the promenade and beach and in minutes home to a restful nights sleep......
Enter via the first floor and you are greeted by a beautiful apartment decorated in traditional French style adorned with colourful paintings by local artists. The view is over the bay overlooking possibly one of the most beautiful views on the Riviera which is famously used as a backdrop in so many memorable movies.
There is no lift but access is very easy with just a few steps to climb.
The apartment has two comfortable bedrooms, one of which has sea views.
There are two beautiful bathrooms, one of which is ensuite..
The galley-style kitchen has views out onto the sparkling Mediterranean. You will be inspired to concoct a Mediterranean banquet. It comes fully equipped with an oven, four-ring hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and American fridge freezer with ice machine.
The apartment is fully air conditioned.
Bella Vista is 96 square metres
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.
Facilities and Features
Long hallway leads into the spacious living area. It is warm, inviting and full of character; decorated in traditional French style with colourful paintings by local artists. For relaxation there is a large leather sofa and foot rest which can double up as an additional seat.
You can gather around the dining table for a French feast. Or relax on the balcony with possibly one of the most beautiful views on the Riviera as your stage.
Over an early breakfast you can even watch the fishermen bring back their morning catch. What's for lunch, fresh fish anyone?
The galley designed kitchen is a pleasure to work in. With views out onto the sparkling Mediterranean you will be inspired to concoct a Mediterranean banquet. It has an abundance of storage space and comes fully equipped with an oven, four-ring hob, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and American fridge freezer with ice machine to help keep you cool on those hot summer days.
Placed just off the hallway which leads to the living room, the Master bedroom is ensuite. It has a king size bed for the perfect nights slumber, along with two bedside tables and wall lamps for night owls to read.
The two French windows enable you to wake up to blue skies and the azur sea. The ladies will adore the extensive walk in wardrobe; hanging space is definitely no problem, even for longer stays. There is also a chest of drawers for your smaller items.
The second bedroom is smaller in size. It has two single beds and a large double wardrobe, so again no worries about clothes space. Placed just off the living area, through an archway to the back of the apartment, this bedroom has its own shower room and WC.
The main bathroom is fit for a queen with its large vanity area and shower. With plenty of space for two to get ready, there is no need for queuing. It also has a toilet, bidet and two laundry baskets for your convenience.
The second bathroom, which is ideally placed between the second bedroom and living area, has a shower, wash basin and sets of drawers for your personals. There is a separate WC right next door.

Location and Map
This marker is for indication purpose only
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.
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.
