Beachfront Bliss is a delightful studio apartment on the Villefranche-sur-Mer waterfront. This south-facing apartment, bathed in sunshine, is all about being on the water with sea views in every direction. Double-glass balcony doors slide into the wall, so the entire apartment appears to be floating on the sea.
Located on the second floor of a lovely art deco-style building, Beachfront Bliss is at the entrance to Villefranche’s main beach – Plage des Mariniers. Open the front door, and you’ll feel as though you could step from the tile floor right into the sea. One of the things you will love the most while staying at Beachfront Bliss is sitting in the reclining lounge chairs and staring at the infinity view of the sea – it’s hard to go out for the day.
Remodelled in 2020, Beachfront Bliss is a well-designed studio of 25 square meters (about 270 square feet), with a large balcony (another 7 square meters). From the kitchen to the bathroom, the owners have leveraged their boating experience and maximized efficiency in every respect.
The kitchenette is well-equipped (coffee maker, kettle, dish rack, toaster) and designed with lovely stone counters for an enjoyable cooking experience. Surprisingly, for a small apartment, the kitchen is uncluttered with plenty of workspaces. There is a two-burner induction cooktop, a full-size oven (not a microwave), and a sizeable under-counter refrigerator. The antique buffet provides additional counter space and dish storage. Once your meal is ready, choose between eating at the indoor dining table or on the balcony.
For sleeping, there is an armoire lit, a Murphy bed. This bed is extremely comfortable on a hydraulic hinge that easily opens and closes (the owners have received many favourable comments). The bed includes four down pillows and two firm reading pillows, a nightstand and reading lights.
Beachfront Bliss has plenty of storage, including two closets, one on each side of the bed, for hanging clothes and drawers for other articles. For additional items and charging electronics, there is a dresser.
The bathroom has a standard-sized shower with a fan that exhausts directly outside. There are hooks and racks for towels and bathing suits and enough space for toiletries.
You can watch TV from the dining area seated in a comfortable reclining armchair or from the bed. The owners have installed an excellent music system that connects to your devices via Bluetooth.
Beachfront Bliss enjoys a commanding position on the bay with a panoramic view of popular Plage des Marinieres. This sandy public beach is calling your name for a walk or a dip in the sea. The cliffs of Villefranche plunge to the sea behind the building, creating the magnificent bay of Villefranche (nominated to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site). The bay and old town Villefranche are among the most photographed sites on the French Riviera and featured in many movies. Enjoy the beach, take a coastal walk, explore the neighbouring villages, including St. Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur Mer.
