Chez Nous is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom penthouse apartment on a quiet pedestrian street called Baron de Bres – known as Villefranche’s “garden street.” Located in the heart of Old Town Villefranche-sur-Mer, steps from the waterfront, this holiday rental has panoramic 180-degree views of the entire bay and Cap Ferrat from the living space, dining, kitchen, and balcony. The sea appears a stone’s throw away.

Completely remodelled, this beautifully appointed apartment has original art, decorative lighting and a mixture of antiques and modern furnishings. Walk up the beautiful slate stairs to the apartment and its captivating view and cathedral ceilings. Natural light floods the apartment from two large French doors opening onto the balcony.

The master bedroom is in the rear of the apartment, with tall French windows and a cathedral ceiling. Here, you find a large queen-size bed, and for convenient clothes storage, there is a refurbished antique armoire and chest of drawers. The ensuite bathroom has a stall shower and a wonderful soaking tub.

When the owners redid the roof, they created a mezzanine with a second bedroom and ensuite. This intimate yet spacious bedroom includes a queen-sized bed that can be separated into two twin beds if necessary. The ensuite bathroom has a large stall shower, toilet, and douchette.

Designed for someone who loves to cook, the kitchen includes all the utensils and gadgets you would want, plus a dishwasher, microwave, gas stovetop, and oven.

Nearby are a boulangerie, butcher, small grocery store, cafés, restaurants, bars, and pharmacy. Yet Chez Nous is a quiet place to live. Chez Nous is a unique location because no buildings are opposite the apartment. On one side are private gardens filled with beautiful trees, flowers and birdsong, and on the other side, terracotta rooftops cascade to the sea.

What their guests say:

For well over ten years now our absolute favourite getaway is to travel to Villefranche-sur-Mer on the stunning Côte d’Azur. There, thanks to Riviera Experience, we get to settle into life in this magical seaside village and pretend for a while that we live there. There are so many joys in wandering the narrow, winding pathways through the village, in visiting the boucherie and receiving a warm welcome from the butcher, or in the daily visit to the boulangerie for the required baguette and croissants. ~Tony & Kathy (Germany)
