What their guests say:

I have spent a number of vacations in Villefranche sur Mer and from my experience, I can assure you that there is no better place to stay.  Upon arrival, guests are very warmly greeted by Shelley and Riccardo who are dedicated to providing a happy and memorable visit.  Their apartments are all expertly renovated and beautifully decorated with respect for the history of their dwellings.  Each one is very well equipped and beautifully appointed with well-chosen art and artifacts from around the world.  Enjoying the incredible hospitality and assistance of both Shelley and Riccardo guarantees a fantastic vacation. ~ Barbara (Minnesota, USA)
