Best Time To Visit: In the top 25% of countries for weather, Villefranche is pleasant all year round. June to August are the hottest months.
Key Cruising Areas: The Côte D’Azur is filled with iconic destinations and pretty anchorages. Sail around the exclusive St Jean Cap Ferrat for some impressive views of opulent villas, and anchor in the many sunny coves or bays.
Don’t Miss: The old town is a beautiful mosaic of yellow cobbled streets and pastel walls with bright shutters, topped off by an incredibly blue sky. The Place de la Paix is one of the prettiest spots, filled with terraced cafes which live up to the name “Peace Square”.
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: From local cuisine to fine dining, Villefranche is filled with high-quality restaurants. For long, relaxed lunches head to the waterfront where the restaurants sit overlooking bobbing fishing boats and glinting yachts. Try L’Oursin Bleu for food as spectacular as the view.
