Visit Villefranche-sur-Mer in the Côte d’Azur

Are you looking for a holiday destination complete with glorious sandy beaches, a large selection of terrace cafes and restaurants and a historic old town then Villefranche-sur-Mer might just be for you. One of the main features of the town is the church and bell tower in the Place Félix Poullan square, in the centre of the town. Take a stroll towards the sea, making your way through the cobblestone streets of the medieval town.

Villefranche is full of vaulted passages which run beneath the houses. The most noteworthy is the Rue Obscura which lies near to the seafront. Nearly half of this is completely blocked and the only light comes from wire-gridded lamps above your head. These streets are reminiscent of the times when the locals needed shelter from bombardments. There are frequent bus and train services which make getting around the area a simple task.

Make your holiday complete with a stay in a luxury Villefranche villa with panoramic views over the beautiful coastline. You won’t be alone and may even spot some famous faces such as Tina Turner, who resides in a villa there for a weekend during each month.
