Plenty of things to do!
There are a multitude of sea sports in the area including a diving school and sailing school in Villefranche. There is fishing from the rocks or deep sea fishing, canoeing, water skiing, snorkelling, and sailing. For hill walkers there numerous routes along the coast line, and in the hills around Eze and Menton, all accessible from the bus route to Menton. For the more energetic there are higher walks in the Royal valley region which is an hours train journey from Nice, and up the Var valley to Haut Provence which is a one hour car trip from Nice.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Villefranche is situated 4km 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 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. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 mins away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten mins away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 mins. The village of Eze is 20 mins by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 mins. A car is not essential and the walks here are fabulous. This is the best location on this fabulous coast by far. And if you are here to attend the French language Institute, Institut Francais it is just five minutes walk away!

                          Golf: Golf: There are several golf courses nearby.

                          Ski: Ski: Skiing is good from November onwards and is 70 km away.
