Pin this Villa
Overlooking Cap Ferrat, with fantastic sea view, in a calm, secure area between the Cap de Nice and Villefranche-sur-mer, this lovely villa offers the balance of calm and beauty, with easy access to the beaches and action nearby.

Situated in a private domain in the hills above Cap Ferrat, La Villefranche commands breathtaking views of Villefranche Bay, Cap Ferrat and the Mediterranean sea. This 4 bed, 4.5 bath villa is truly 'California meets Provence' in style, enjoying the charm of Provencal design and the casual lifestyle of California indoor/outdoor living.

The interior is Provencal in style, with a large French chimney piece, antique stone floors, and antique furnishings, yet it has the ingenuity of glass windows/doors that virtually disappear to create a completely open air villa.

Three of the four bedrooms have bathrooms en-suite, and the fourth has a bathroom just outside.

The heated salt-water infinity pool overlooks olive trees and lemon trees in the lower garden, and the villa is covered with heavenly scented jasmine.

This lovely villa is on the border of Villefranche-sur-Mer (said to be the prettiest port on the Riviera), and Beaulieu-sur-Mer (a beautiful belle-epoche village), in the Alpes Maritimes district (where the Alps meet the sea). Close to charming St. Jean Cap Ferrat, St. Paul de Vence, Nice, Eze, Monaco, Menton, and 45 mins. from the Italian border (Bordaghera, San Remo), you are situated to travel to many, many fabulous places from this perfect location!
