The view! A large and nicely furnished terrace with lots of plants and privacy. Also a very quiet building and neighborhood. Villefranche is not an extremely touristy area anyway which I loved but very easy to bus it to Nice (I walked sometimes) or anywhere along the Cote d'Azure. It's up in the hills (which is why the view is so fantastic) so you do have to be mindful of the bus schedule when returning and taxis are expensive. Otherwise walking uphill can be hard for some. I'm in my 60's and I did it a few times but that's because I missed the last bus. There is a shopping area about a 10 minute walk uphill which is not too bad and you can find all the necessities like grocer, bank, pharmacy, a couple of cafes, etc. I really, really enjoyed my stay there.

I could finally come back after almost a year. Everything always perfect: location, apartment, comfort, communication with Richard. I recommend it to everyone!

We absolutely loved our stay at Richard's beautiful apartment! The apartment was extremely clean, had everything necessary to easily cook meals at home, and was just a five minute walk from a grocery store and delicious bakery. The view from the balcony was fantastic, even better than the pictures, and well worth the many flights of stairs up from the harbor to the apartment building. Richard made checking in and out very simple and was available to quickly answer any questions we had. It was a short walk to the old town of Villefranche and a short bus ride to Nice. We spent a wonderful week here and can't recommend it enough!

AMAZING view and very clean. We absolutely LOVED the apartment. So clean and with all amenities. We loved the floor to ceiling windows with all of the light and gorgeous view. The village is so quaint. We enjoyed the exercise back up the stairs from the village to the apartment. The village and this apartment was the BEST part of our trip in the French Riviera.

Richard's apartment was simply fantastic. It is open and spacious and one of the best views we've ever seen. The apartment was clean and easy to access. The balcony is fabulous with wonderful views and a lovely table to eat outside. Richard was easy to communicate with and made us feel welcome! He even left us a bottle of wine, which we enjoyed! If you go to Villefranche Sur Mer, stay here!

Overall, Richard's place was super! Wonderful to be tucked away up on the hill where noise and street traffic do not disturb. The balcony in the evenings was our favorite aspect of this Airbnb, private and fantastic view of the ocean and sunset! Nice location for utilizing buses, but quite the hike up the hill to other bus stops and shops. Not bad for us, as we welcomed the exercise. It was very hot during our stay, so an AC would be very welcomed during summer months. Sure it's fine when it's not so hot.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Richard's Airbnb. The view from the apartment was beautiful. Richard was a very responsive host and we had no difficulties whatsoever. The apartment itself has a dishwasher and lovely balcony. There's also both a shower and a bathtub. We had a car, so it was easy to reach the apartment. It's in a quiet neighborhood, around a 20 minute drive to the main area of Nice.
