About the neighbourhood
Villefranche is situated 4km from Nice Centre and 7km from Nice International airport. A well kept secret as it retains it's charm due to lack of major hotels nearby. You can happily spend all your time in the Village discovering it's wonderful history and why artists such as Jean Cocteau and Sommerset Maughan loved this area so much. In the 60's the music of the Rolling Stones could be heard across the bay from their villa on Cap Ferrat. Yet the village still retains it's authentic feeling. If you do wish to venture forth, the train which is 7 mins away runs all along the coast. Nice or Monaco are ten mins away or you can be in Italy (Ventimiglia) in 40 mins. The village of Eze is 20 mins by car or St Paul de Vence, Cannes and Antibes about 40 mins. A car is not es... more
Getting around
The transport is really easy with a bus at the bottom of the road that goes to Nice in ten minutes or Monaco in about twenty minutes. There is a train close by (15 minutes walk) that goes all along the coast. Again seven minutes to Nice and ten to Monaco. Italy is 40 minutes away by train.
Car not needed
