The Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region
Villefranche is situated 4kms from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village enjoying discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay as they had a villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. Villefranche also benefits from a micro-climate which means that the suns shines all year round making it perfect for a winter break. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 minutes away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten minutes away or you can be in Italy in 40 minutes. The wonderful village of Eze is 20 minutes by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 minutes. All can be reached by public transport so you can easily be without a car. However, there is parking available nearby. This is the best location on this fabulous coast by far.
