Charter Destination Villefranche

Share this page

The captivating old town of Villefranche Sur Mer cascades down the hillside and drops to a café-lined shore with a long beach. Anchor in the well-protected bay during a yacht charter in Villefranche Sur Mer and enjoy a relaxing afternoon enjoying this region’s finest sites and attractions.

Villefranche is one of the deepest natural harbours in the Mediterranean and is considered to be amongst the most beautiful in the world. From the town’s fort of Mont Alban, you can see the Italian coastline stretching as far as the eye can see.

Despite its beauty and appeal, Villefranche and its neighbour Beaulieu-Sur-Mer remain relatively unspoiled and are often overlooked by visitors to the Cote d’Azur.

However, those in the know are well aware of the delights that Villefranche offers, making this a wonderful under-the-radar destination. For water enthusiasts, the pretty bay offers plenty of water sports, from sport fishing to diving. If you prefer to watch the action, take a sunbed at Plage de Mariniéres, which boasts beautiful white sand lapped by the blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

On the quayside, destination restaurants include La Mére Germaine, which reputedly serves the best soupe de poisson on the Riviera – a must during a luxury yacht charter in Villefranche Sur Mer.

Villefranche Sur Mer is conveniently located between Monaco and Nice, with moorings offering excellent security for large superyachts. Additionally, the surrounding hills are ideal for biking and hiking, offering plenty of trails to choose from. During a Villefranche luxury yacht charter, make sure you leave time to head to the top of Mont Leuze, where you can enjoy spectacular views over the bay.
