The capital of the French Riviera
Only 5 kilometers from Nice you will find the genuine little town of Villefranche-sur-Mer. Its bay is one of the deepest in the world and is often visited by some of the world’s largest cruise ships. The resort is famous for its many markets, its croissant-shaped and fine-grained sandy beach and the harbor area which has retained its original charm, as well as a couple of excellent restaurants and shopping. Villefranche-sur-Mer, with its unique charm, is the perfect place for those looking for a quieter atmosphere, but at the same time wanting direct access to Nice and its wide range of activities.
The elegant peninsula Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat is just a 20 minute bus ride from Nice, the area is known for its stunning scenery and as one of the most prestigious addresses on the French Riviera. The cozy harbor area houses nice restaurants and luxury shopping, and the Saint-Jean area is ideal for hiking, as a hiking trail runs almost all over the peninsula.
