location
The location is unbeatable as it has 5 windows to the front (+ 6 at the back) and there are no stairs to climb. There are 2 balconies to the front. One is fitted with table and chairs. All ceilings are high as it was constructed from 3 old apartments made into one! The main building dates from 1720 and Rue Obscure (underneath) from 13th century. The basement has a separate entrance for bicycles etc if required.

Although the apartment is on the second floor from the port side, the entrance is on ground level from Rue Poilieu, meaning that there are no steps and that this apartment is suitable for the infirm. A car is not necessary in Villefranche. However there is a public car park 120 yards away (€ 8 / day) and a free car park on the old Citadel (300 yds away).
