Villefranche-sur-Mer is an incredibly picturesque and charming old fishing village located between Cap Ferrat and Cap Nice, only 4 km from the harbor of Nice. When the village belonged to Italy it was called Villafranca. Many other small and beautiful villages are nearby such as Eze and La Turbie. The bay of Villefranche has been voted one of the five most beautiful bays in the world. This is easily recognized when you arrive here.
Villefranche-sur-Mer, also called “the heart of the Riviera”, offers a vast number of good restaurants, cafes, art studios and many boutiques with souvenirs and other things on display. The markets in the village are not to be missed.
If you want to be active you can hike in the hills and mountains or around Cap Ferrat. Why not rent a bike and ride up in the mountains or join one of the diving clubs for snorkeling or scuba diving? Or for that matter, just relax on the long sand beach and enjoy life.
