What a view !

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this Villa do not do the property justice, the location and view is outstanding.

From my initial enquiry to checking out Tamsin(the caretaker) could not have been more helpful.

The Villa was immaculate on my arrival and all the fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday.

We were celebrating my Birthday and La Vigie was the perfect base and very convenient for the attractions of Monaco, St Jean Cap Ferrat, Beaulieu etc. It is also only 20/25 minutes from Nice airport.

It was an absolute pleasure to sit on the large terrace with a cup of coffee, or something stronger, and gaze at the fantastic view and watch the world go by.

The Villa offers complete privacy but is only minutes from the shops and restaurants of Villefranche.It is also 10 minutes from the nature reserve at Mont Boron where I was able to walk my dog.

We also had great weather which was unexpected but highlighted the beauty of the house inside and out.

I would not hesitate to recommend this villa, and Tamsin, to anyone and hope to return here very soon.

Thank you again.

A fantastic place to relax and explore the Riviera.

A real family villa with plenty of homely touches to ensure that you feel welcome and begin winding down as soon as you arrive.

The housekeeper was very helpful in providing local information on places to visit, transport and shops - there's a supermarket nearby which will deliver your shopping free of charge. A taxi from Nice airport direct to the villa is very straigt-forward and takes about half and hour. Local buses and trains are a short walk away and will take you to Nice and Monte Carlo for a couple of euros return.

The villa and garden are really well looked after and offer fabulous views over the bay, where you can watch cruise ships and yachts coming and going.

We were lucky enough to have great weather and enjoyed breakfast on the terrace in the morning, sun loungers by the pool, barbeque for lunch and the comfy chairs in the garden in the evening with a few glasses of wine! There's loads of space for everyone.

We visited Nice, Monte Carlo, Menton, Cap Ferrat and the Rothschild Mansion, as well as local restaurants in Villefranche, but there's lots we didn't have time to explore so we're looking forward to coming back.

Thank you.

Lovely Villa and Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful holiday while staying at this villa. It is positioned in a great location overlooking Villefranche and has fantastic views. It is a lovely home and very well maintained. The manager / housekeeper took very good care of us and was very helpful. We can not wait to return for another visit to this villa and the area.
