Unfortunately this is a non-smoking apartment. However my favorite cafe, Les Palmiers with Oliver and Serge, is just a few meters away... you can enjoy your cigarette in the sun while having a cafe or drink!

We stayed in Steve's apartment for the last part of our stay in Nice/Villefranche. The apartment is located right in a square of markets, and is very easy to access. The door is hidden away by a restaurant which took us a few minutes to locate. The apartment is exactly as photographed, and we absolutely loved it. The decor is modern and has a homely feel, and for us at least was a unique stay. Everything you need is within a short walks distance, including many good restaurants  (we can recommend La Caravelle, Cosmo and Le Loco Loco), shops, bakeries, greengrocers and activities. On several nights we enjoyed meals outdoors listening to local musicians and only had a walk of 2 or 3 minutes back to the apartment. The apartment also provided both A.C. and a fan which was greatly appreciated. This apartment is just as pictured, and we would recommend staying if you're visiting Villefranche Sur  Mer, however we suggest that you keep in mind the size of the apartment, as if (like us) you have a lot of luggage it can be difficult because there's very little storage.

Great loft in a perfect location, and perfect for a couple - the apartment was one of the most unique (in a good way) places that we've stayed in. While we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Steve, he was extremely communicative and responsive for check-in and check-out. We also really appreciated the tips on local restaurants, public transport, etc. Would definitely recommend this flat!

After a long journey through busy cities around Europe, we managed to find both the picturesque town of villefranche to be one of the best recharges we have had. Both the town (with it's almost too-good-to-be-true views/warm people and delicious food options) and Steve's accommodations were above par for any traveller's expectations. The apartment is situated right at the port and steps from the center of all the action in villefranche. We found that this was both convenient and that the town was both lively yet quiet come night time for uninterrupted sleep. Steve leaves a very clean apartment and we found the accommodations to be spacious and affordable considering the costs in the area. Steve leaves a nice booklet with a information on the entire area that is sufficient for even travelers that have done zero research before stepping in the doors. The beaches are some of the nicest we have ever experienced in terms of the water and the views. The transport is super easy and close from the apartment. It is one bus both to Monaco and Nice. If we were to ever come into the french riviera again we would most definitely make both villefranche and Steve's air BnB our top choice JESSICA AND LAWRENCE

Excellent location only steps away from lovely restaurants on the seafront. A short stroll to the train station for trips to Nice and Monaco and beyond. The apartment is a lovely living space. The views are beautiful. The bed was very comfy. The shower was really nice. The kitchen area had everything we needed for our short stay. I would definitely recommend this for couples and would love to go again.
