The-most-beautiful-seaside-areas-in-FranceWelcome to Part 3 in our series of posts about places in the South of France for families by the sea. If you missed our first one on Antibes, check it out here, or catch up on our second on Cimiez in Nice, here.

Sticking with the French Riviera, our next stop takes you away from the city glamour and into the heart of French village life.

3. Villefranche-sur-Mer

Villefranche is a delightful traditional fishing village in the Cote d’Azur nestled between Nice and Monte Carlo which makes it a great base for exploring the region.  With so much to see and do here, it is hard to know where to start. It is the perfect place if you want to relax, enjoy the beach and take in the beautiful scenery.  You may prefer to soak up the French lifestyle, cuisine, magnificent walks, delicious produce and wine, and shop in the local markets.  Italy is just 30 minutes away too and makes an extra special day trip.  You won’t tire of all the opportunities there are for you and your family to enjoy themselves and get away from it all.
