Why Jonathan Aird chose Villefranche-sur-Mer
Probably the best villa in Villefranche because of the location ..... Great views, sunny, 100 metres to beach and easy walk to port / restaurants / shops
What makes this Villa unique
Belle Epoque style villa with guest quarters and great on-site management to deal with all the small issues while on holiday (Medical, dentist, boat hire etc) Video done for pop record in Soleia by Pixie Lott..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyVmCBF3gm8

We had a great stay at Villa Soleia
Plenty of accommodation in this beautiful Belle Époque home
We stayed during the heatwave, but the air conditioning in the bedrooms was excellent and the pool was very welcoming
The town is very close and plenty of good restaurants
The train station is below the Villa so access to Nice, Monaco and Cannes was easy
We had our small wedding ceremony and party at the villa, also booking the next Villa Oursinade owned by the same Mr. Jonathan.
Everything was great and our guest were deeply impressed by the setup. The property is very well managed.
Thank you very much to Jonathan! All was perfect!
It was our best stay in Villefrance!
It was wonderful to have your family staying in Villa Soleia and hope to see you again.
Glamorous with spectacular view
Great mansion with a superb view. Great layout and the very short walk to the train station was an added plus.
One of the best places to stay in South of France!
This is a fantastic property! We rented Villa Soleia along with neighboring Villa Oursinade (same owner). We took 21 friends and family and to a person we had a wonderful time. The villas are well located, with incredible views, in a beautiful little village, with great access to public transportation. We used Villa Soleia as a focal point for our entire holiday with afternoons by the pool, cocktail hours, and all around socializing. We had three formal-ish dinners at Soleia and they turned out great. With that many people, you are typically into buffets, so depending on the course, we set food up on the front patio, dining room, and even the back patio. The common areas are great. Formal living room is a great place to relax. We used the dining room as an office by day (great Wifi here) and dining room at night. The kitchen worked great as well. We would definitely go back, and hope to in the next few years. If you are interested in this area, you should be interested in this villa.
We’ve visited Villefranche sur mer 5 times now and stayed at Villa Soleia twice. This is a magical village and a spectacular villa. The villa is very well kept, well-furnished and equipped and well managed. You and your friends or family will have a spectacular trip staying here. Both times we’ve stayed we’ve had 12 people and there is plenty of room for all very comfortably. The 4 main house bedrooms are all ensuite and all have full on amazing sea views. They are all very private and comfortable. The nanny’s house beside the main house is a two story loft with a small living room and full bath on the main floor and the double bed up the spiral stairs. Open the windows and you have the same amazing views for about 90 degrees. Extremely private and provides your own living space to relax on your own but close enough to the main house to be part of everything. The separate apartment is located up a flight of stairs in the back part of the property. It is behind the house next door and is blocked from having the view, however, stepping 3 feet out of the apartment provides you about 70 degree sea view and 1 flight of stairs and 10 steps takes you to the main house terrace with full on view! This apartment is a 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, living room and full kitchen.
I cannot say enough about the view and the swimming pool. Both are outstanding. Oh, and there is a great roof top where you can have drinks and enjoy the sunset. You will end up spending your afternoons lounging in the large pool and gazing at the Mediterranean and spending your evenings on the terrace overlooking the incredible village and sea view. If you choose to venture away from this great property, it is an easy thing to do. Villefranche is a leisurely walk into the village where there are many great restaurants and shops. The walk home is an easy grade slightly up hill but be ready for the steps at the villa. It’s all worth it! The train station is super close and do not worry about the trains. They are quiet. You can get to anywhere along the coast for the day or a night out. There are 3 bus stops in Villefranche and one is just about straight up from the villa. Extremely doable but not easy. Do not do it with luggage.
So much to offer in this area and this is the place to stay!
The villa is located 7 kilometers from Nice and is on the sea beside Villefranche, Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur Mer. It is central and convenient..... only 90 metres from the beach or train station and a 4 minute walk to the port. Ideal for children. A car is not necessary except for heavy grocery shopping. Monte Carlo is a 15 minute drive. This is probably the best part of the Cote D'Azur . Villefranche is a historic village and the Old Town is very unusual with streets only 2 metres wide in places.
