All Year Round: The location is perfect for a holiday any time of the year as the area has so much to offer and Villefranche benefits from a micro climate. Rue Obscure, which is one of the oldest streets in France runs under the apartment and is unchanged since the 14th century. Villefranche is the most charming and authentic town on the Cote d’Azur, nestled on the spectacular shores of the Bay of Villefranche, yet just minutes from Nice and Monaco. Still a genuine French fishing village with a wonderful local culture — yet also attracting a very interesting international group of visitors and residents, including students that attend the renowned French language institute called the Institut Français. This is a wonderful area for walkers with the coastal paths and the hills close by. For example there is a superb walk around Cap Ferrat (about eight miles). The American sixth fleet were stationed here during the second world war.
Villas and Gardens to visit: The unique micro climate has facilitated the development of world renowned gardens which are open to the public such as Villa & Jardin Ephrussi de Rothschild on Cap Ferrat, and Villa & Jardin Kerylos in Beaulieu sur Mer, both within walking distance. There are additional renowned gardens in the area of Menton.
Jean Cocteau Chapel and the Citadel: Jean Cocteau painted the interior of this most beautiful chapel on the waterfront. It has been recently restored to its former glory. Ville franche is a village full of art and artists.
Visit the ramparts of the Citadel and take the guided tour into the Sculpture Gallery and through the cobbled street of the old towns history. Visit the tourist office for details.
