Day 4: Villefranche Sur Mer, a slice of heaven

Since this was the last day in Nice, we each had a list of things we wanted to do. I wanted to see lavender fields in Grasse; Pragati wanted to go to walking in Eze. Many people recommended going to Antibes but since it was very similar to Cannes and we were short on time, we wanted to make most of this day.

We decided to go to Villefranche Sur Mer. A medieval, fishing village, Sur Mer is one of the picturesque places I’ve ever seen in my life.

Two stops away from Gare De Nice, you get down from the train to the views of red-tiled roofs and blue-green waters of the Meditteranean.

Promenade des Marinieres is the nicest pebbly beach I’ve been to. The waves are less forceful so you can actually just sit on the shore and let the waves come to you. It’s actually a private beach divided into a public area as well as a private beach club (I forget the name) Pristine white décor plush with a great bar and fresh food, they even had a DJ playing great mixes.

With sandwiches, pasta and fresh Caesar salad, we were really impressed with the café. While my brother-in-law and niece were wearing their suits and had a great time, both Pragati and I had Prosecco and spoke about our next plan.

With pebbles beneath my feet and the warm waters touching my feet for what felt like an eternity, it was time to head back to Nice.

Things to keep in mind when exploring in Villefranche Sur Mer

Sur-Mer is actually a medieval fishing village. It’s not very commercial and is usually recommended by locals.

Be it water skiing, sailing fishing or trying other water sports, you’d have lots of options here.

 A quick train ride later, we headed to Nice Airport to catch our flight back to Basel.

So that was how we spent four days in The French Riviera: we obviously didn’t cover everything which
is why both locals and tourists go there again and again. We hope our travelogue keeps you inspired and also
helps you plan your trip!
