Villefranche-sur-Mer, renowned Côte d’Azur town, from the moment of yourarrival, be it by corniche road, by sea or by train, offers an awe inspiring panorama.
The radiant town of Villefranche, with its port and 16th century cathedral, at the foot of a vast rocky amphitheatre and with the majestic sweep of its shoreline, has retained many traces of its origins that,
with the constant variety of its colours, have made it the town of painters and artists.
A maritime town in a privileged location, it has become one of the principal tourist ports of the Côte d’Azur, stopover point for many cruise ships, but remains a picturesque and ever-changing fishing port, shelter to a flotilla of small pleasurecraft and « pointus ». The charm of Villefranche is also due to the mildness of its climate, the environmental aspect that gives rise to the exuberance and spectacular display of its remarkable vegetation.
Lastly, Villefranche-sur-Mer is fortunate to benefit from a varied gastronomy combining local cuisine and fresh fish from the Mediterranean.
