The nearest International Airport is located in Nice and is about 14 km away. The bay of Villefranche is one of the deepest harbors in the Mediterranean and is considered to be the most picturesque on the whole Riviera. It reaches a depth of 95 m between the Cape of Nice and Cap Ferrat and extends south for 500 m, forming an abyss known as the Canyon of Villefranche about 1 nautical mile from the coast. Due to the depth of the bay, it is here that large Mediterranean cruise ships dock. The sandy beaches of Villefranche are much more popular than the pebbly beaches of Nice. The long central beach in Villefranche-sur-Mer is one of the rarest on the coast between Nice and Italy, where you will not find pebbles, but coarse sand, so there is no need for special shoes. You can swim here even with small children.
