About Muriel Berdat

Hi, my name is Muriel and my husband's William.

We are the happy parents of 3 great children, Tennessee who's 20 and in College in Milan, Alan and Chelsea almost 14 years old.

I grew up in France from Italian parents, spent a year as an exchange student in the US, and have loved travelling since I was very young !

I have been a real Estate Agent for the past 22 years, and I now specialize in Vacation Rentals on the French Riviera.

I have also been an elected City Councelor of Eze since 2008, and I am in charge of helping the non French Resident.

William has been a plumber for the past 35 years, and loves to travel too, but more than anything, loves to improve our home with new features, new decoration, new bathroom, etc...

He's done a carrier shifting last year, and now loves to take my renters on day trips to explore the Riviera like they're locals ! (of course he also gets involved to help me with my rentals if something needs to be fixed).

William also loves to garden, he's done the veggetable and fruit garden on our roof, and is working now on the fitting of an outdoor kitchen and decking on the roof so our future renters can enjoy a relaxing area with panormic views on the sea and the mountains !

We both really enjoy meeting new people, and helping them discover the area like we sure would like to be able to discover other countries : from the inside !

High end quality service has always been a concern for both of us, especially as his and my clients, usually travel miles and miles to come on vacation down here, and coming such a long way, their vacation has to be as perfect as it can be !

My children would say that I am a cleaning maniac, and so is my sister Sam, and we work together managing my rentals.

Muriel Berdat purchased this apartment in 2013

Amazing apartment, great view.

  • 5 of 5

We were given a warm welcome by Muriel and walked into a clean, cool apartment with the most amazing view over the bay. It's full of comfey beds, fresh modern bathrooms and a kitchen with a multitude of useful appliances. It's tucked up in the centre of the old town and has plenty of great restaurants and bars close by. Our family has the most wonderful stay here and we're just trying to work out how quickly we can come back again.

Great place, amazing location, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this darling apartment. My husband, Mother-in law and our two boys 11 and 14. We will be back! It was THAT great. The apartment is literally steps to fantastic restaurants and wine bars. It is located in the heart of the village and couldn't be more convenient to enjoying the cafes and stunning views. The apartment had a great kitchen with everything you could need. The living spaces were well appointed and very useable. It is small like everything in the village, but we never felt cramped. Everything we needed was there including beach towels and umbrella.

We walked to the boulangerie every morning and ate dinner in the village or on the water every evening. The kids could explore on their own. They loved just walking around and hanging out by the water. We loved having coffee in the quiet of the morning at one of the many cafes at the base of the village on the sea.

Rent a boat in town for the day. We found great coves to swim in and rocks to jump off. The views of the picturesque mansions from the water was fun too.

It is important to note that if you can not climb stairs - this apartment and village are not for you. As everything is built on a hillside, lots of stairs are inevitable. If you have bad knees stay in Nice.

Perfect apartment for two couples.

  • 5 of 5

The logistics and the property were perfect for two couples. The apartment was clean, modern, spacious, and well appointed. Everything one needed was either there on site or within easy walking distance. The view was spectacular and the property manager provided all the right tips for dining and tourist destinations. HIghly recommended. We loved it and hope to return one day.

Fab Contemporary Apt in Heart of Old Town

  • 5 of 5

This is a chic, very well equipped, fully renovated apartment in the heart of the Old Town, walking distance to everything--beach, public transport, shops--quiet, on one of the prettiest streets in Villefranche...(not the interesting rue Obscure pictured...the street the apartment is situated on is much more beautiful and inviting!) ...with a stunning view of the harbor and Cap Ferrat...! And like most apartments with a view in the old town, it requires climbing steep, old steps to access...always worth it for those fit to enjoy it! Xox

Perfect apartment for the 3 of us, but capable to accommodate more.

  • 5 of 5

Muriel is a true professional who has a keen eye for buying prime properties in prime locations and decorating them with panache. The place was generously equipped with everything we could have possibly needed and more. It has to be said that the view is the best aspect of the apartment, we have loved every minute of dreamily gazing out to view the yachts, the water, St Jean Cap Ferrat, the stars at night, etc. If you are considering this apartment don't hesitate, but keep in mind a stay in Villefranche sur Mer requires climbing and descending lots of steps. On the plus side, this means indulging in something yummy can be "balanced out", well at least in my dreams!

Villefranche sur mer
Car: not necessary

Villefranche sur mer, a jem on the French Riviera,ideal for vacation rental, to relax,sightsee , and an excellent starting point to explore Nice, Monaco, Cannes and more. Villefranche sur mer historical town feels like time has stopped : medieval paved small streets, steps, fountains, shops, restaurants, shopping and birds singing ! All of that steps from the seashore, the beach, and with no cars to spoil the moment! The Cocteau Chapel by the water, decorated by Jean Cocteau, the 1500 Citadelle hosting City Hall and the Volti museum, only touring Villefranche sur mer is worth coming ! There is so much to see.

But also ideal to watch the locals still sit in the Spring or Summer by their doors, chat, and cease the moment.

Local dairy market, great bakery for croissants and baguette, all you need is in the old town. Train station is nearby and easy to reach Italy, San Remo,the markets,or take a day trip to Cannes or Monaco. Meet Villefranche sur mer, we know you'll fall in love.
