The small Côte d'Azur fishing port East of Nice, is an unassuming enclave of period and modern villas that has become one of the world's most expensive real estate markets.
In the late 1800s, when Villefranche harbour, six miles southwest of Monaco, served as a base for the Russian navy, the town hosted vacationing royal families from across Europe. Then in the 1970s, when one of its largest houses was rented by the Rolling Stones, it attracted rock star visitors including Tina Turner and Elton John, both of whom owned homes in the region.
Villefranche-sur-Mer benefits from the proximity of Monaco and other glamorous Côte d'Azur locations. Villefranche-sur-Mer, Cap-Ferrat and Beaulieu-sur-Mer form the area known locally as the Golden Triangle, with a reputation for the finest and most expensive properties of the Côte d'Azur.
