It is in a magnificent harbour that we discover the colourfull village of Villefranche-sur-Mer and its charming fishing port. You can enjoy a magical view of the Cap Ferrat peninsula, an essential spot on the French Riviera. This superb peninsula is home to one of the most beautiful palaces on the French Riviera, the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, an Italian-style palace that can be visited.
The village of Villefranche sur Mer benefits from an important cultural heritage, including the Saint-Pierre chapel, located near the fishing port, decorated by Jean Cocteau in 1957. In addition, the citadel, built in the 16th century to protect the harbour, contains museums and temporary exhibitions. It was in Villefranche harbour that the ships of the first tourists docked: the crowned heads of England and Russia, as well as their courses. This clientele financed the construction of the road linking the village of Villefranche to Nice.
In all seasons, the old town of Villefranche-sur-Mer, with its narrow and colourful streets, attracts many visitors, who come to enjoy its café terraces and restaurants offering local specialities.
The real estate market of Villefranche sur Mer offers all kind of properties. You will find apartments on several floors and with balconies and terraces in the small alleys of the old town, or more spacious and modern apartments above the village and in luxury residences on the heights of Villefranche sur Mer. If you are looking for a second home, buying an apartment in Villefranche allows you to enjoy the sun and shops nearby all year round and Nice International Airport provides easy access to the accommodation. A condominium apartment requires less maintenance than a villa with land. Many apartments in luxury residences have their own park and swimming pool.
