Yes, the terms “Côte d’Azur” and “French Riviera” are often used interchangeably to refer to the same region in France. The Côte d’Azur, which translates to “Azure Coast” in English, is a stunning stretch of coastline along the Mediterranean Sea in the southeastern part of France. It is renowned for its beautiful landscapes, mild climate, luxurious resorts, and vibrant cultural scene.

Villefranche-sur-Mer is a very safe place to visit. It has almost no crime and you will rarely see a police officer.

It depends on what you are looking for! All seasons have something special to offer. The summer is the most popular time because that’s when most people take vacations, the kids are out of school, etc.

Everything is open during the summer season and many activities are available that may not be during the rest of the year. The summer is also the most crowded, reservations highly recommended, and traffic is heavier than at other times of year.

Fall is enticing because everything is still open, the water is still warm enough to swim in and the crowds have subsided. September through October are spectacular on the French Riviera!

The winter is also a great time to visit. There are virtually no crowds, many restaurants are still open, prices are at their lowest, and the mountains and skiing are just one hour away. You can ski in the morning and dine alfresco the same afternoon! That’s pretty special!

The Spring is also an ideal time to visit the French Riviera because the weather is perfect, most restaurants and activities begin to open, and there are several iconic happenings like the Monte Carlo Tennis Open, the Cannes Film Festival and the Grand Prix which occur.

In short, there is a compelling reason to visit the Cote d’Azur any time of the year!

Villefranche has the reputation for being the “perfect” village on the Cote d’Azur. It is not overrun by tourists, it is always noted as being one of the most picturesque villages on the French Riviera, it is near the City of Nice but far enough away to be tranquil, it is easily accessible to towns such as Antibes, Cannes, Grasse, St. Paul de Vence and San Tropez to the West and to Roquebrun, Monaco, Menton and Italy on the East. Villefranche is located on one of the most beautiful Bays on the Riviera with stunning beaches, water activities, great restaurants, and accessibility to St. Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu (the other towns which compose the Golden Triangle) within a few minutes drive.

The villa is perfect for families, especially because walking to the village and beach is so safe for children. The pool and media room are also big hits with the kids. Non-walking infants are welcome; however, we do not allow toddlers who are too young to swim because of the two bedrooms, including the master bedroom, which open onto the pool.

The villa is equipped with all linens and towels, toiletries, and a welcome basket to help you get started with your stay without having to rush out to the grocery store. If you would like to have a fully stocked kitchen upon arrival, please let the villa manager know well in advance of your arrival.

The villa manager will meet you at the premises to give you the keys, the codes, and the gate fob. He will also explain how the appliances and TVs work!

The address is easily accessible using any GPS system. The address is clearly indicated on the outside of the villa gates.
