The PORT OF VILLEFRANCHE is a natural, historic and traditional harbour, well sheltered from all winds, located west side of the famous bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer, south of the citadel. The harbour attracts boaters looking for a picturesque, welcoming and well-protected site. Classified as a historic monument in 1991, the port has preserved the legacy of its commercial, military and Royal history.
The original installations of PORT OF VILLEFRANCHE date from the 18th century. The dry-dock basin of Villefranche-Darse (60 x 11 x 2.50 m) is the only one of the French Riviera, between Toulon and Genoa, which allows the haul-out and facilitates the delicate work carried out on vessels of tradition. Right next door, it has two 50 and 100 T slipway, specialized in the restoration of traditional boats.
Between Monaco and Nice, on the feet of the Alps, the bay of Villefranche has always been an unmissable stop on the maritime routes of the Mediterranean Sea. The bay is surrounded on all sides by cliffs: Cap Ferrat, Cape of Nice, first foothills of the Alps – the spectacle is striking. This amphitheatre of hills protects a vast water plan of two kilometres by one and a half with depths reaching a hundred meters.
Villefranche is located on the edge of an important maritime axis of the Mediterranean, halfway from the major ports of Genoa and Marseille. Today, for yachting enthusiast, there is nothing more elegant than to drop anchor in the bay of Villefranche.
Nowadays, the PORT OF VILLEFRANCHE is a public port managed by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI), dedicated to fishing and recreational boating. Like all the ports of the CCI, it abides by the CUNCA (Urban Community Nice-Côte d’Azur) port regulations, without leaseholds and little or no leeway in length. It offers 520 moorings up to 45 m long and a landing pontoon for excursionists on cruise ships at anchor.
