20 mn drives from Nice Airport, 20 mn from Monaco.
Villefranche-sur-Mer and its famous bay lies 6km east of Nice and approximately 10km south west of Monaco.
The old harbour dates to 17th century but nautical ties to the area predate the Roman presence in the area. As one of the deepest natural harbours in the Mediterranean Sea, Villefranche attracts significant visitor levels who are keen to explore the Riviera coastline.
Villefranche-sur-Mer has maintained its historic cachet with its port, the colorful fa�ades of the Old Town and its Citadelle. Jean Cocteau, amongst other artists, fell under the spell of this enchanting site. Bathers and divers especially appreciate its beaches lapped by clear waters.
The town extends to the hills surrounding the bay which provides stunning panoramic views and the three "Corniches" or main roads linking Nice to Italy pass through Villefranche and offer spectacular vistas of the coast and surrounding hills.
