Enjoyed our stay greatly


My wife and I stayed at La Barcasse for three weeks at the beginning of May 2013 and found it ideally suited to our needs. The apartment is located very close to the water in the old town of Villefranche and looks down on the Cocteau chapel, onto restaurants & onto a small market that gathers almost daily to cater to passengers brought in on tenders from giant cruise ships that moor out in the deep water bay. The apartment is compact and newly renovated -- including the kitchen and bathroom -- with most everything one needs for daily living. A proper chef's knife would have been welcome. There is a (small) supermarche quite nearby up the hill along with a bakery and green grocer so that basic shopping needs are readily met. There are many restaurants to choose among. Walks in both directions (toward Cap Ferrat & around the Citadel) are a pleasure. Citadel is remarkable and has 3 small museums. It is most convenient to visit La Barcasse without a car as parking would be a problem and the bus service, though crowded, works well to visit Nice, Cap Ferrat, Monaco, Menton, Vence and Eze. Nice merits several visits. The 100 & 81 buses run along the Bas Corniche but to reach Eze you need to take the 80 bus to change at the Moyenne Corniche. Views from both corniches are amazing. The train is less crowded and recommended to travel to Monaco or Menton to avoid standing on the bus. Also the train is the way to get to Cannes. Views from the train are less amazing. We were lucky with the weather except for a couple of days and, therefore, overall enjoyed our stay greatly.
