The Town Spreads over three Coastal roads- the lower, middle and upper roads- each one offering a superb view on the bay of VilleFranche and the Cap Ferrat.
Explore the town starting from the imposing 16th century Citadelle Sainte-Elme. Move on from the Citadel to discover the cobbled streets of the old town. Last but not least Villefranche sur mer attractive harbour offers a pleasant walk to the beach that you will certainly appreciate during this French to Italian Riviera private tour.
Looking over the Principality of Monaco, the town’s position, 480m up on the Grande Corniche, also makes it the perfect viewpoint from which to survey the coastline below.
You will be moved by the village’s charm, with its narrow paved streets and vaulted passageways dating back to the Middle-Ages, its tastefully restored houses and shady small squares.
This medieval village is perched on a rocky outcrop high over the Mediterranean. It is a picturesque village with narrow streets, stepped-streets, stone steps, one-person-wide walkways and deep vaulted passages. There are lovely little squares and fountains here and there, wrought-iron balconies and other charming discoveries. There, you will be enchanted by St. Marguerite’s church, the ancients olive tree, the cave of Vallonet and Le Corbusier’s cabin.
It is all at once a city of gardens, a seaport and a beach resort, a jewel in the South of France. Its heart is located in the old town, where the Medieval style buildings grouped around the Eglise St Michel and the Chapel de Pénitents Blancs, stand at the top of the hill.
Menton is said to be the warmest town on the French Riviera, which was the reason for its popularity during the Belle Époque when British visitors and Russian princes flocked to the town and luxury hotels and villas were built in a magical setting.
San Remo, situated between the sea and the mountains in a wide bay protected by two headlands, is the elegant capital of the Italian Riviera. Its main attractions are its almost continual sunshine, warm climate, hotels and villas, marina, spa centres, racecourse and casino. It is also Italy’s main commercial centre for flowers.
Basking in its magnificent natural setting, La Reserve de Beaulieu welcomes you with all the charm and elegance of a prestige hotel. More than a gastronomic place this hotel is a vibrant memory for all this century. Politics, Movie Stars and Writers have stayed there to relax in front of the sea.
