Villefranche-sur-mer, France


"Villefranche-sur-Mer from Eze, France", © Elroy Christenson 2001

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a picturesque town between Nice and Monaco and the Italian border. Eze is a town on the high road to Monaco. In the past Villefranche was an active fishing village which has given way to much more upscale life style that the Côte d'Azur provides. Private yachts and pleasure vessels moor in the harbor. View property has attracted the rich and famous including the houses of Somerset Maugham and the Baroness Ephrussi de Rothchild who lived on the opposite side of the harbor near Cape Ferrat.

Harbor side restaurants still serve up stunning menus of fish, mussels, and clams. The beach wraps around the end of the harbors warm blue waters.
