Located in the Old Town ramparts of Villefranche sur Mer, the simple charm of by-gone times will overwhelm you with stone pebbled walkways, arches, and tumbling flowers reaching for the sparkling sunlight of the Mediterranean. Everything is at your doorstep: the baker, the butcher, and restaurants galore. The beach and the Villefranche port is a pebbles throw away. The location is unbeatable, with two balconies overlooking the stunning bay.
This holiday rental apartment is on the second floor from the port side, but the entrance is on ground level from the street side. There are no steps to climb. The total area is 2400 sq ft, which makes this the largest apartment in Villefranche's Old Town. It is in one of the oldest buildings, built in 1720. High celings and charming features abound throughout the apartment.
There is a basement to store bikes, if needed.
Read a book on the sunny balcony or choose to lounge around on one of the two plush sofas. The apartment furnishings have been freshly decorated in a style of by-gone times--let the antique style take you away to another era! The owner has put special thought in all of the beautiful bedding, curtains, and fabrics that surround you. There is comfortable seating for 8, satellite TV, and a video player.
The kitchen is decorated in a cream provencale. It is fully outfitted with fridge, freezer, hob, oven, dishwasher, washer and dryer. It is a very large space-- perfect for entertaining friends and family alike, with an extra large dining table for 6.
The main bedroom has a double bed (150cm) with a small balcony and a wonderful view over the bay. It includes an en suite with walk-in shower of Portuguese marble, a cupboard with hanging space, two bedside tables, and lamps for reading.
The second bedroom has a wonderful romantic sleigh bed (150cm) with an en suite walk-in shower, in the same style as the master bedroom. There are plenty of hanging spaces and cupboards, 2 bedside tables, and lamps for reading.
The third bedroom is a twin room with 2 single beds and a desk. There is also a bedside table with reading lamp and plenty of cupboard space.

We (2 couples) spent a week and hated to leave. The location is marvelous. Overlooking the bay, great restaurants steps away, really easy access. And, if you know Villefranche, you know that to be able to go out the door and find a market (small) a few doors away is pretty remarkable. It is decorated elegantly, but casually -- very inviting. The spaces are really good, too. Very large main living room -- large kitchen -- beautiful bathrooms. Can't wait to return. We took the train over from Nice (after arriving by TGV from Paris) and got out at the Villefranche station -- and it was a really easy walk from there. Really a convenient location for everything. Including the beach. Loved it!

Other reviews are completely accurate - this apartment is amazing. We stayed a week with our two adult daughters, one with her partner. There was ample room for five adults and having three bathrooms was a bonus. Beautifully decorated and well equipped Seagulls is easily the best we have stayed in. The location can't be bettered, waterfront with views to die for, just a treat waking up and drawing the curtains to see if there was a new cruise ship in the harbour. Restaurants aplenty, bakery and a wee supermarket a few doors away. Everything about our stay was perfect and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to everyone. Thanks Seagulls!

Just came back from Villefranche - the apartment is fabulous, very bright airy and comfortable. It is in very traditional French setting with the charm of a beautiful pedestrianised street to enter the apartment and the sheer beauty of being less than 10m from the sea on the balconies. It is ultra luxurious and spacious, just a pity we had to come home. Beds extremely comfortable and everything needed for an enjoyable time to be found in the cupboards or the basement. We hope to return there in the future and would recommend it highly, whatever the price.
