Location Yacht Villefranche-Sur-Mer


Strikingly beautiful, the bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer rests on the last foothills of the Alps and stretches for about 3 kilometers between the Cap de Nice and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. At the foot of the mountains, it is easily recognized by its fortified citadel visited by thousands of tourists each year, its incredible port of La Darse and its pretty colorful houses, which with their charm perfectly marry the seaside and its turquoise waters. Its remarkable architecture is steeped in history and the charm of its small pointed port and its beautiful sandy beaches make Villefranche an essential stopover for your yacht charter sur la french riviera in the Mediterranean.

Come ashore in this fishing village of Villefranche-sur-Mer and walk to the unmissable Citadel of Saint Elme from the 16th century and its Volti Museum for a historical visit. Stroll around the port of La Darse and the surrounding colorful streets to discover famous bars and restaurants such as « la Mère Germaine » or« Le Dry », and reach magnificent gravel or sandy beaches such as the beach of Marinières, a beautiful gravel beach extends over more than 700 meters, the beach of Ange Gardien, a sandy beach accessible by a small path, or the beach of Grasseuil, a small intimate beach located at the entrance of Cap Ferrat.
