Well if its good enough for Madonna then its good enough for me. Madge rented a villa here for her birthday as well. I saw fireworks emanating from Villafranche one night when I was enjoying a dinner party high up on a hill in Nice. I was then informed that they were for Madonna. Villafranche is different from nice as there are less restaurants and the village is far quieter.


Villafranche sur la mer is stunning and had a wonderful August crowd on the beach. There was nowhere to find shade so the searing temperatures required immediate swimming in the crystal waters of the cote d’azure.
