Bus and rail service is excellent on the Cote d'Azur and the apartments are close to both the bus stop and the train station, the bus stops are a 5 minute walk and train station a 12 minute walk.
Villefranche is serviced by bus no. 100, running from Menton to Nice every 15 minutes, where it links with city buses, the tram and other suburban buses. There is a standard charge of €1 for all trips within a 15 km radius of Nice - and the ticket can be reused for onward journeys within 74 minutes of first validation and are usable on the tram. The last bus from Nice leaves at 8.00 pm. There is a late night service which is infrequent.
The train is the better option for longer journeys of 20 minutes or more, such as Menton, Antibes or Cannes. The frequency is every 30 minutes. It is slightly more expensive but is quicker for longer journeys with less stops.
The welcome pack in the appartment contains a bus route map and time-tables for bus and trains.

During the shoulder months we welcome long term guests and will offer attractive rates to match their requirements.
The apartments are extremely comfortable for winter stays as both are fitted with electrical central heating and dual air condition systems. While you can expect bright sunny weather during the winter months the evenings can turn cold and it is nice to have some heating.
The location of the apartments on Avenue General Gallieni ensures that they are ideal for students attending the Institute Francaise which is a ten minute walk and in the evenings when the students gather in the restaurants they are close to our apartments
