Villa Royale, Villefranche -sur- Mer



One of France’s most beautiful harbour towns, overlooking crystalline waters framed by Provençal greenery, Villefranche-sur-Mer is located not far from Nice. Its deep water means all kinds of boats can drop anchor there and their owners can make the most of the balmy climate. Treat yourself to a delightful day out exploring the old town’s winding streets, where the orange-tinted façades are reminiscent of the ever-present sun that shines on Villefranchois territory. The warm colours of the houses contrast with the pale shades of the louvred shutters, which are often half-closed, allowing a glimpse of the inhabitants’ peaceful lives. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around the maze of arcades and steps: you will probably end up on Rue Obscure, an underground street built in the 13th century for soldiers to pass through more easily. The place was also used for storing wine and protecting livestock.

Continue your tour at the Church of St. Michael, with a façade in a sublime colour palette of white, pink and pale yellow. Its colours and Baroque architecture from the 18th century echo the opulent religious buildings of Italy. The inside of the monument, in amber shades, contains one of the oldest organs in Alpes-Maritimes, dating from 1790. You can also admire a life-size, recumbent statue of Christ, carved from fig tree wood.

Another place to discover is the Chapel of St. Peter near the fishing harbour, which was decorated by Jean Cocteau in 1957.

History buffs will have a field day exploring the citadel founded by the Duke of Savoy in 1554 for the purpose of guarding the harbour. Remarkably well preserved, it offers a reminder of the medieval glory of this ancient town. The citadel has three museums within it: the Volti Museum, the Goetz-Boumeester collection including famous paintings, notably by Miró and Picasso and the Roux collection of nearly 300 historical polychrome ceramic figurines.



From Villa Royale’s location in the heart of the French Riviera, in a few minutes, you will have access to the countless activities it lavishes on its admirers.Whether you enjoy practicing your favorite sport, discovering the most famous names in Haute Couture, renting a day-cruiser, attending an exciting show, thrilling to the passion of the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Monaco or quivering with emotion at the International Film Festival in Cannes, the French Riviera offers the most complete range of entertainement and will delight you throughout your stay.
