I visited here briefly 4 years ago, and never really explored the area but this time stayed and we both just love it ! Nice is just too big, Monaco to crazy ! Get a water front view from your room and relax.

We loved our visit to Villenfranche-Sur-Mer and the Old Harbour. It is such a beautiful place. Both places are within a short walk of one another. The walk between the two clings the coastline and provides some really stunning views. There are lots of wonderful...More

What a fabulous little town to walk around, ending in the old port, it's a must with several port side restaurants to while away lunchtime people watching, select your restaurant with care though as some are pricey with poor portions.

Take time out to visit the old harbour. Its a nice walk around there. There's some park benches where you can sit and watch the mariners at work. Lovely on a nice day

Walked through here on our visit to Cannes. We rode the ferris wheel and enjoyed looking at the boats.

Head towards the marina but stop when you reach hotel D'ar on left. On right you will see small free parking area. Get there before lunch maybe 11am if you can. If full it is worth waiting for 5mins as very often a space... More
