République Square Old Town Apartment Location Guide
Just a few minutes away from the bustling city life of Nice to the west and Monaco to the east, Villefranche-sur-Mer is a tranquil jewel on the Côte d’Azur, where sunshine, great food and spectacular vistas make it an ideal spot to enjoy the relaxing side of Riviera life.
Set at the foot of villa-scattered hills which spill down to its horseshoe bay, port and beach, the town offers a wide range of restaurants, activities and boutiques to cater for any age or taste, while also being small enough to wander everywhere by foot. In the quaint and colourful old quarter, stroll through the narrow cobbled streets, exploring the sheltered ‘Rue Obscure’ as you make your way to St. Peter’s Chapel, where Jean Cocteau’s artwork decorates the walls. Soak up the atmosphere at the daily market when the main square comes alive with everything from the finest local food produce to second-hand bric-a-brac on any given day.
Villefranche beach is a popular spot for locals and visitors alike, and although not the broadest of beaches, its long strand offers plenty of space to find a quiet spot for basking in the sunshine and bathing in its clear, translucent waters. Making your way back to the Old Town, Villefranche’s charming old port is lined with small boats of every colour, some of which are available for rent for exploring further afield. However, for the less adventurous, look no further than the short promenade by the port for a selection of excellent restaurants with the freshest seafood and local delicacies on offer.
On the opposite side of the bay, the peninsula of St. Jean Cap-Ferrat stretches out into the Mediterranean and is a great place to spend a day, whether it be admiring its spectacular villas, indulging in the comfort of its private beaches, or taking part in some more exciting water-sports for which the Cap is famous. Alternatively, with regular train and bus services conveniently located by the beach and just above the old quarter, Villefranche is also an ideal place to explore more of what the Riviera has to offer. Head east and you’re just a short 20-minute drive to Monaco – keep going the same again and find yourself in the majestic Ligurian region of Italy. While heading out past Nice, a similarly short drive can find you tracing the footsteps of the stars on the Croisette in Cannes.
In a prime location, this property is a perfect spot to explore all that Villefranche-sur-Mer and its surrounding towns have to offer.
