About Laure & Thibault

Hi everybody!

We are Laure & Thibault, a French couple that loves... LIFE!

Our princess Victoria is now part of our future and is so nice and stunning!

We like sport and great experiences... such as La Terrasse!

Laure & Thibault purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Laure & Thibault chose Villefranche-sur-Mer

Hi everybody,

We are in love with Villefranche-sur-mer and more importantly in love with « LA TERRASSE ». This apartment really offers a unique view of Villefranche and Saint Jean cap Ferrat! It is because of THIS VIEW, that in 1986, our grandfather FRANCIS decided, on a whim and against our grandmother’s advice, to acquire this piece of land over the sea! As grandchildren, we could not part with this magic place. Therefore, we put our whole heart and energy to completely renovate the flat during the summer 2016 and to transform it in a luxury and modern place to live it up to the beauty of the location!

Today, we would like to open it to all of you who want to discover the French « art de vivre » while enjoying a rare and breathtaking view that will delight you by its changing colors all along your stay…

So don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any question. We are fluent in French, English, Italian and Spanish. We will provide with answers without delays.

What makes this apartment unique

"La Terrasse"...

The view from the 2 rooms, one towards the rooftops of the historical village and the sea, the other towards the exotic gardens of typical houses of the region ...

The spacious living room with its modern kitchen with central island that opens onto the large and amazing terrace. The large floor to ceiling windows all around this space offer an extraordinary skylight and allow to open once more to enlarge the living space and to feel as close as possible the marine air, the warmth of the multicolored roofs of the historic village, the quiet exotic private gardens of typical nearby private houses, the beauty of the Citadel and the bay of VILLEFRANCHE-SUR-MER facing Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat ... Sublime ...

The comfort and the high standing of the master room with its ensuite bathroom offering large modern bathtub and large italian showers with an incredible view...

The confort of the second room and its charming and relaxing ensuite bathroom with modern italian shower...

The breakfasts and apéritifs took on the sofa of the amazing terrace and its armchairs taking advantage of this fantastic view while listening to the engines of some old fishermen's boats returning to the small port Saint Jean or a jazz air coming from the central square of the village ...

The pleasure of cooking on the central island of the open kitchen in the living room while enjoying a magnificent 180-degrees view...

And much more ...

Absolutely perfect, inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Laure and Thibault have spared no expense in creating this exquisitely designed space. Every detail has been considered. And the harbour view!!!! OMG!! We found Villefranche to be the perfect location for exploring the Côte d'Azur, much quieter than surrounding towns, but still with good restaurants and a little nightlife if you are looking for it. Very friendly. 10 minutes from Nice or Cap Ferrat. Don't miss a visit to nearby Eze. And the views!!!

We found our hosts to be very warm and flexible, and the property manager, Monique, also to be flexible and she made an extra effort to accommodate our delayed schedule.

Highly recommended. Did I mention the views?

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Villefranche many times before in a variety of accommodation and I have to say this was the best yet. Words cannot describe the views from the terrace. They were breathtaking! The apartment itself was immaculate, with new high end furnishings and appliances. The location is perfect, only a short walk from everything.

Communication with the owners Laure & Thibault was excellent from start to finish and Monique, the property manager was extremely helpful.

Thankyou! We would love to return!

Could not imagine a property with a better combination of vistas and easy access to shops and restaurants. Recently renovated with top quality appliances and furniture. Absolutely nothing negative to say.

Beautiful apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time staying in Villefranche and I can honestly say La Terrasse has been the best accommodation we have stayed in. It has been recently refurbished to an exceptional standard, is has quality fixtures and fittings, very spacious and so light with floor to ceiling windows. The views are amazing with a huge wrap around terrace, and even the views from the bedroom and ensuite bathroom are incredible! Great correspondence from the owners Laure & Thibault with detailed instructions, and Monique met us at the apartment, she was lovely and accommodating of our entry time. We will definitely be booking again!

Location, Location, Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are headed to the south of France, you have already made the first right location decision. Next, if you are reading this review and considering finding an apartment in Villefranche-sur-Mer, you will be making the second right location decision. This harbor is the port of call for many of the cruise ships. The village itself is picturesque and has such charm, that walking around the village, going to the weekly farmer's market and just laying on the beach or renting a boat for the day, would occupy you for days. There were so many great restaurants in this village (based on recommendations as well as the few that we ate at) that we were sad when we ran out of time to try more. However, if you wanted to get to other locations without a car, within a 7-10 min walk, depending on how fast you walk, you can take a train and get to Monaco, Nice, and many other villages as well as Italy. Fast, convenient and cost effective. However, we did rent a car and this particular apartment had some designated parking available, which was certainly beneficial. That brings me to the third right location decision, the actual apartment. If I ooze with excitement, it is because this place was absolutely amazing. It is located just high enough on the hillside that you have an amazing panoramic view of the harbor and the village itself. However, not so high up that you need to walk great distances to reach water's edge. Let me mention again, wow, the views and ambiance. Our first night there, we chose to order take out (from the Vietnamese/Thai restaurant - order something with squid, so tender) and eat in only because we could not get over the amazing views we had from the apartment. (Even the master bathroom had great views.) The apartment is decorated in a simple but classy modern style. Beds are incredibly comfortable. All the amenities you would need to cook a meal but not sure you would want to given the number of excellent restaurants, all within walking distance. And the spaciousness of the apartment, the large wrap around deck, the large screen TV, ability to connect your phone via bluetooth to their Bose speaker, and did I mention the views. Wow again.

Monique, who helps to manage the apartment, spoke perfect English, was delightful, and gave us an extensive tour of the town. We were also welcomed with Champagne, strawberries and roses, because the owners knew we were celebrating our 20th anniversary. So thankful we found this place!

April at The Terrace

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 11 days at The Terrace and had a wonderful time. The apartment is immaculate and minimalistic, but the atmosphere is not clinical or cold. Every little detail has been thought about with care. The kitchen has very modern appliances with quality crockery, cutlery and glassware. The beds are very comfortable too. The views are even better than the photographs, which is hard to believe. The owners are very pleasant and easy to deal with & Monique the apartment Manager is very charming and helpful. If you are looking for a luxury holiday in the south of France, this apartment is hard to beat.
