Villefranche sur Mer is arguably one of the most beautiful old fishing towns on the Cote d'Azur. Located between Nice and Monaco. Behind the town are the mountains of Mont Boron, Mont Alban and Mont Vinaigrier. It is just 10 km (6.2 mi) south west of Monaco. The bay (rade) of Villefranche is one of the deepest natural harbors of any port in the Mediterranean Sea and provides safe anchorage for large ships between Nice and Cap Ferrat.
The town limits extend to the hills surrounding the bay climbing from sea level to an altitude of 520 m (1750 ft) at Mont-Leuze. The three 'Corniches' or main roads linking Nice to Italy pass through Villefranche.
The apartment is very conveniently located near sea level below the lowest of the three 'Corniches' in an area called La Darse. It is an easy 4 minute stroll to the main street which has a boulangerie, banks, tabac, pharmacy, newspaper shop and mini supermarket. It is another 10 minute stroll into the old part of town via the 'citadel' castle walk. The old town is fascinating to stroll around and has a good selection of restaurants, shops and bars. It is filled with history like the Rue Obscure or “Dark Street” which is a passage way under the harbor front houses which dates back to 1260.
There are two beaches in Villefranche. The La Darse beach which is a 5 minute walk from the apartment and Plage des Marinières, which is the main beach, a 14 minute walk, and over 1 km long.
