Villefranche-sur-Mer is a charming, medieval seaside town on the French Riviera, with fabulous weather for most of the year. As one of France’s – and possibly the world’s – most beautiful bays, Villefranche is extremely picturesque with plenty of interesting architecture.
Set between Nice (five minutes away by train) and Monaco, two cosmopolitan locations, Villefranche-sur-Mer maintains a small-village feel, which will remain that way, as the coastline makes it impossible for it to expand much more.
If you’ve ever visited Villefranche-sur-Mer, you’ll have probably found it difficult to leave. Many are drawn to the laidback lifestyle and the can’t-beat proximity to the sea and many find themselves longing to continue spending their days – or at least more holidays – wandering from the waterfront to the winding alleys complete with restaurants, bakeries, cafes, churches, museums, shops and weekly markets.
If you’re considering a move to the area, let’s take a close look at five luxury villas in Villefranche-sur-Mer with sea views.
Five Bedroom, Three-Story Villa with Infinity Pool
The sunbathed rooms of this three-story villa remind you that you’re always a few steps from fresh air and beautiful landscapes. There are four en-suite bedrooms with dressing rooms that open onto spacious terraces. The home also has a double lounge, a fully equipped kitchen and a walk-in wine cellar.
Soak in views of the sea from the infinity pool or the lounge chairs right beside it, and walk right down the coast via the private-access staircase. There’s also a guest house on the shore, which includes its own terrace, plus space to store recreational water vehicles.
