Within close walking distance of beach, old town, shops and railway station,
this stunningly refurbished luxury apartment within the sought after Les
Restanques building affords spectacular unobstructed panoramic views over
the beautiful bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer from its 25m² terrace.
The shared swimming pool is set within mature landscaped gardens and the
apartment also benefits from private rooftop parking.
Only 5 kms from Nice Airport, this beautiful apartment is easily accessible
by train, bus or car. Catch the train at Nice St. Augustin Station (10
minutes walk from the airport) and travel only 3 short stops to Villefranche-sur-Mer.
From the station & old town, a flight of steps will take you directly down to the
beach and a walk uphill of approx 10 minutes will bring you to the apartment. In
fact, easy walking distance to the railway station provides the possibility
of travelling the length of the picturesque Cote d'Azur from Menton near
the Italian border, visiting the Principality of Monaco some 15 minutes
to the East of Villefranche, the vibrant cultural city of Nice itself,
and Antibes, Juan Le Pins, Cannes and Théoule-sur-Mer to the West.
Alternatively, take the airport bus to the central depot in Nice. From
there, travel by bus (Menton/Ventimiglia) for 15 minutes through stunning
scenery, alighting at the apartment (stop Leopold II). Car hire from the airport is available
by arrangement and the easiest route to the apartment is to follow the
Bay des Anges to Nice Port then proceed along the Basse Corniche past
the centre of Villefranche, finding the well signposted Les Restanques
some 300 metres further on on the right.
picturesque town of Villefranche-sur-Mer slopes down to a beautiful
horseshoe bay featuring on its opposite side the peninsula of Cap
Ferrat, one of the most expensive pieces of real estate in the South
of France. Explore the narrow, fascinating streets of the old town
which manages to combine French village life with the influx of visitors
it enjoys on a year round basis as one of the most scenic spots on
the Côte d'Azur. The old town boasts numerous restaurants, brasseries,
bars and cafes, each with its own ambience. An antiquities market
is held regularly in the centre of the village and Villefranche boasts
a number of cultural interests such as the ancient fort, citadel,
chapel/church and various art exhibitions. As might be expected, peak
season weather tends to be hot with pleasantly warm and sunny weather
experienced for much of the rest of the year.
