Villa Gracieuse is a wonderful, Belle Epoque luxury Villefranche villa situated in Villefranche-sur-Mer, within walking distance of the town centre, port and beach. The elegant façade and delicate wrought iron balconies are a fine example of the architecture of the period. Inside, high ceilings and marble floors create a cool, spacious and relaxing environment with wonderful sea views.
A short walk from this luxury Villefranche villa brings you to the small port and beachfront, which has good restaurants, shops and an antiques market each Sunday. An ideal way to explore this region is on the coastal train, which runs from the Italian border to Frejus before heading inland towards Provence. Closer to home, tennis, sailing, coastal walks and golf should ensure that everyone is happy during their stay at this luxury Villefranche villa.
One of the main attractions of this wonderful villa is its proximity to the centre of Villefranche; this is not the place to escape to if you anticipate and need peaceful countryside, but rather the place to embrace the essence of vibrant Riviera living: 'joie de vivre' as the locals say!

If location, comfort and elegant surroundings are your top priorities, you will enjoy your stay here. Villa Gracieuse is one of the many distinctive “Belle Époque” villas in the region which were built in the 1920s by wealthy English families wanting to escape cold British winters. But now you can reserve this villa at any time of year. And what could be nicer than nipping down to the village in the morning to buy your fresh croissants, and then enjoying them with your tea or coffee while reading the morning paper on your terrace overlooking the bay of Villefranche? And then after breakfast you have all the time in the world to visit the old town, the church which was decorated by Jean Cocteau, or the citadel, gardens and museums. Or just stroll down to the beach!
