Easily the best location in Villefranche. Fantastic mountain and harbor views from almost every room. 5 minute walk to the awesome swimming beach. Close to the Citadel, train and bus stations. The Cocteau museum, and great restaurants are right there too. My suggestion for a perfect day: wake to a leisurely breakfast on your balcony watching the fishing boats tool around the harbor, walk down to the beach and lie in the sun while waiters bring you cocktails and yummy snacks. Head back to the "wine pier", connected to the Welcome for sunset drinks (make friends with Dominique-he will treat you right!) Then have dinner at any of the great restaurants along the waterfront or in town (our favorite was "Eschallote" in the old town). Back to the Wine Pier for a nite cap, and you have found your heaven.
