Buying maps

I'm in Villefranche for a week, from this Saturday. I always like to have an IGN map of the area (and, since I'm planning to do a bit of walking around Breil sR, of that area too). Am I right in assuming the local Maison de la Presse will stock these? To save me a bit of hill climbing on a hot day, could anyone tell me if there's a M de la P at the station/beach end of the village?

Thanks

Jonathan

There are no shops of any kind near the station/beach. There is a newsagent in Rue Du Poilu but don't recall maps there. More chance in the one on the main road but still doubtful.

An update - yes, Bob's right, I couldn't find maps in VSM. But I walked to Beaulieu this morning, to shop at the SuoerU (more good advice from Bob), and on the way up towards the station, the newsagent there stocks a good range of IGNs.

(Unrelated postscript: I was rudely awoken at midnight last night - early night after a long day's travel - by Madonna's birthday fireworks being let off from a boat/platform in the middle of the bay, straight in front of my window...Celebrating her 55th, so a quick Google tells me)

Thanks for that Jonathan. I didn't know it was possible to buy maps in Beaulieu. I will have a look on the way to Super U this afternoon.
