Le Petit Bijou (the little jewel) is a 1-bedroom holiday rental apartment on the waterfront in Villefranche-sur-Mer. This apartment is private, central, and fully outfitted. It is an ideal location for a vacation on the French Riviera. Throughout the day, the dramatic scene changes as the lighting shifts towards evening.

The apartment’s furnishings are designed to help you relax, enjoy, recover and renew. The art featured in the apartment is from one of Villefranche’s finest painters and includes beautiful scenes of Villefranche. The living, dining area, and kitchen overlook the waterfront, and the balcony is accessible via French doors.

The living room seats four adults comfortably, as does the dining table. In addition, there is a small desk / front hall table at the little front hall of the apartment where you can set up your laptop and enjoy a view of the bay while working away.

The well-designed kitchen even has an excellent view for the cook. It has a gas stove, oven, dishwasher, deep sink, and all the essentials for cooking.

Located at the rear of the apartment, the bedroom looks out onto Place du Conseil, an intimate square with the lion fountain. The bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, a large closet with hanging and shelf storage. There is an AC unit directly over the bedroom door for cooling the room. The bathroom has a lovely soaking bathtub with a shower, a sink with a large marble countertop.

The waterfront in Villefranche le Petit Bijou is so close that you can see the fish swim in the sea from the balcony. It is a very romantic place, day or night, but it is incredibly romantic with the beautiful golden light from the old street lanterns reflecting on the sea. This building is one of the most photographed in Villefranche and appears on many postcards and books about the area. There are also several paintings of the building, including some hanging in museums in Paris and Nice.

What their guests say:

I love watching the world go by from one of the many balconies in the apartments watching the fireworks over the water at Cap Ferat at night, the gulls all swooping over the bobbing boats in the day where something is always happening…the swallows up near the church and I love the bells tolling..the little things are the best and the time to take them in. ~ Claudia from Florida
