The city, sea, vineyards, Alps,
Piedmont’s got it all
whether it’s in the winter, spring, summer or fall.
Summer is best with the French Riviera just 3 hours away
where you will definitely enjoy your stay, even for a day.
If you can, go to the bay of the elegant Villefranche Sur Mer 
I am sure you will feel like you are in a dreamy atmosphere there!


Ok.. enough with my amateur attempt at poetry but what I really want to say is that we were invited by our friends to spend the weekend at this marvelous bay with its numerous hidden beaches. The water was crystal clear and different than Italy, they were almost all public, meaning free! The beachfront shops and restaurants are VERY expensive but it makes you really feel like you are on vacay even if it is just a weekend get-a-way!

Anyway, I am going to leave you with a video showing our “follow the sun beach” itinerary!

Don’t forget that just down the road, is the bigger city of Nice where you can find better prices, music on the beach and nightlife. Also nearby on the Italy side of Villefranche is the medieval city of E’ze where you can walk up steep streets in the labyrinth of the stone walls.
