Villefranche-sur-Mer, a charming seaside village that gently tumbles down a hill and drops into the azure sea on the Eastern edge of the French Riviera. The Greeks, Romans, French and Italians have all left their mark and influence on this spectacular bit of coast, making it a marvelous meld of culture and style. The pine trees, palms and cacti co-mingle with bougainvillea, tile roofs and plaster walls. Church bells ring, harbor bells sound. Sounds remarkably like Santa Barbara, n’est-ce pas?
