Beautiful, relaxing villa!
We just returned from our wonderful stay at Villa Ciany. We have rented numerous villas in southern France and elsewhere, and this is definitely one of the best! Our extended family of 8, ages 15 to 88, were extremely comfortable and happy in this lovely home. The newly-renovated kitchen was the most organized, beautiful, and best-equipped we've encountered. The bathrooms, also newly-renovated, were well-designed and sleek. The beds were SO comfortable - including the fold-out couch, according to my teenagers. Our favorite spot was the wonderful outdoor table under the pergola, where we ate breakfast, lunch, and some dinners - as well as playing cards in the evening. The pool was a perfect size and temperature (be advised there is no shallow end, though, if you have small children). The villa is a short drive from the Villefranche waterfront, tennis courts (to rent), and downtown Nice, and we made daytrips to Eze, Gourdon, and St. Paul-de-Vence. There is a garage for one car but we ended up parking both of our rental cars on the street right outside the upper gate, and never had a problem finding a spot. The owner Andrew was extremely responsive and helpful when we had questions. We walked 7-10 minutes to the bakery and back every morning, and a convenient Casino grocery shop is across the street from the bakery. If you don't like driving on narrow winding streets, you may find the location a bit daunting, but don't let that dissuade you from renting this lovely villa.
Riviera luxury with a view.
The stand out feature of this property is the sensational view of the bay at Villefranche-sur-Mer from the terrace. However the property itself is also worthy of much praise. It’s been beautifully and tastefully restored, blending the original, elegant exterior and lush gardens, with modern, clean and stylish kitchen and bathrooms inside. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with high end appliances, including a wine cooler. Outside in a block by the pool is another shower room and toilet, as well as another fridge and wine cooler by the large dining terrace. The house is beautifully cool thanks to a very effective air conditioning system and the beds all extremely comfortable. There were 6 of us (three couples) and we loved our week here. The restaurant and bars in the harbour were just a 10-15 minute slow walk away down two long flights of steps. We walked down and four of our group Uber’d Back up! (8-10 Euros).
Along the sea front in either direction, beaches are a short walk away, as is the train station for direct trains to Nice, Monaco, Menton etc. The Villa was a real treat for us; a taste of the high life! The owner was very helpful prompt answering any emails regarding questions we had.
Anything negative? Not really. If a forth couple were going, they would be on a fold out sofa bed in the downstairs study and although every bedroom had it’s own bathroom, two of them weren’t quite en suite; they were either next door or across the landing, but neither of these were an issue for us.
We would highly recommend this place if you are considering Villefranche.
Great stay in fabulous house
Wonderful village location with incredible views. Lots of shops and restaurants close by. House and pool very comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. It is beautiful with stunning views. Location is great for walking but be prepared for hills and stairs.
No disappointments what so ever. Would highly recommend this property and will rent again!
Fabulous Family Vacation!
We couldn’t have asked for a better experience than we had at Villa Ciuny. We were there with our adult and semi-adult children and some partners and it couldn’t have been more perfect. The location is so great that we could go sight seeing all over the Cote d’Azur For half a day and come back to the house to lounge by the pool in afternoons. The house is perfectly stocked with everything we needed. Not one thing wrong. Perfect!!
The location was beautiful. Away from the old town but easy to access with buses and walking paths. The house was well equipped with cooking materials and stocked with daily household items. The gardens were well cared for as was the pool area, which can be protected by a barrier and has an alarm. Any problems were promptly taken care of by the man who looks over the Villa. The owner provided detailed information on entering and leaving the villa and the appliances. We all had a fabulous time and I would return in a heartbeat!
Villa Ciany is situated in Villefranche Sur Mer overlooking Cap Ferrat. It is approximately 10km from Nice airport, 12km from Monaco and 24km from the Italian border.
