The Best Kept Secret in the French Riviera

By Priscilla Gutierrez

This is the town of Villefranche-sur-Mer located in the French Riviera just 20 minutes away from the city of Nice, France. 

I had the opportunity to visit it twice on a trip to France with my family, and I've been dreaming about going back ever since!  

It's a quiet small beach town with a lot of locals and not as many tourists. 

Such a nice relaxed beach vibe here. 

The beach here is small grain pebble sand as opposed to huge rocks like in it's neighboring town of Nice. 

I remember feeling like I was more in a small Italian town as opposed to somewhere in France. 

Just up the way from the beach near the parking the walls are lined with bougainvillea flowers! 

Besides the beach you can explore the vertical town with all it's beautiful homes perched over the bay. 

If you're an Emily in Paris fan, the show visits this exact same view point in season two! 

How gorgeous is this view!

Me in 2019 obsessed with this beautiful French town. Definitely add Villefranche-sur-Mer to your travel bucketlist.
