Artistes Tresor Holiday Apartment

Holiday Apartment in the Old Town of Villefranche sur Mer | Sleeps 6 | Large Terrace

Located in the heart of the old town of Villefranche sur Mer and forming one entire floor of a building dating back to the 16th Century this is Mattie's apartment which she bought in 2002.

This apartment is unusual for the old town in that is has a large terrace which overlooks the entire bay of Villefranche towards Cap Ferrat.

Please note that the apartment is in an historical village and ​is on the second floor so there are stairs to climb.  Please pack as lightly as possible as the dress code is generally casual and you don't want to be carrying heavy bags up the stairs.

The view is really wonderful and if you like the character of the old together with the comfort of the new, then you will love it here.

You will find a small selection of Mattie's paintings throughout the apartment giving the atmosphere of a home rather than an impersonal rental property. Our guests come back time and time again. Please read our reviews to see how much guests have enjoyed their stay.   There are always improvements being made and this year Mattie has renovated the second bathroom and added some new furniture.

We have air conditioning in the living room and about to install some in the village side bedrooms.  This is in case of any unusually hot weather.

The location (see map) is the best in town. Surrounded by restaurants and minutes from the sea front and beach. The train is seven minutes walk away. The street is a car free zone and parking is available close by in the public car park or the citadel. However, a car is not essential as the public transport is excellent.

See Travel details and more information on parking.

A little slice of Heaven

AT Sunset-sm

What a little gem Artistes Tresor is! My family (me plus my husband and three teenage sons) stayed here for a week and we couldn't have been more comfortable. We really felt like part of the community .. The apartment is right in the old town on the second floor of an old building with great views over the bay. We spent hours sitting on the lovely little balcony happily watching the boats coming in and out of the bay.

It was an easy stroll to all the restaurants in the town and the little supermarket is almost next door! The beach is also an easy stroll along the harbour wall. And the train station is a five minute walk down the hill and gives access to lots of interesting places up and down the coast - we made day trips to Eze and Ventimiglia in Italy.

The apartment is very comfortable and immaculately clean and felt like a home from home.


Lovely Convenient Apartment

This was the third time we've stayed in Mattie's lovely apartment, but were amazed when she told us our last stay was twelve years ago; how time flies!!!! I can;t believe we've left it so long to return, it's so comfortable and so convenient as everything you need is right on your doorstep. When our daughter, son-in-law and two small grandchildren joined us for three days, there was plenty of room for all of us. We had a wonderful time, and even had some lovely weather, so could enjoy the amazing view from the terrace.

Mattie was extremely helpful with all the arrangements, and we look forward to our next visit.
