Location
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.

The 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.
