The small Côte d'Azur fishing port of Villefranche-sur-Mer, near Nice, is an unassuming enclave of period and modern villas that has, after more than a century of patronage by the rich and famous, 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. After occupation during the second world war the port enjoyed a quiet but affluent existence until the 1970s, when one of its largest houses was rented by the Rolling Stones attracting rock star visitors including Tina Turner and Elton join whom both had homes in the region.

As well as Monaco to the east, Cap-Ferrat and Beaulieu-sur-Mer are almost next door, while the international airport at Nice a still-expanding city, of which Villefranche has become almost a suburb in recent years is six miles to the west. - CF5466
