Rent a boat with or without skipper in Villefranche-sur-Mer


Villefranche sur Mer is a seaside town located next to Nice in the French Riviera. This town is considered one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean. With a fantastic harbour and coastline, it’s an amazing place to rent a boat and enjoy the sea. Make sure you pack a snorkel as some of the sea floors you can explore will leave you mesmerised with diverse sealife. If you rather just relax, Villefranche sur Mer is a great place to take in the sun as it has great weather all year round.


Best time to visit Villefranche sur Mer


Villefranche sur Mer is located in southern France which is particularly well known for its great weather. The warmest time of the year is in summer between the months of July and August. This is also the most crowded period of the year with tourists visiting during the hush season’s holidays.


If you want to visit the town, we strongly suggest that you visit at another time of the year. For instance, you could rent a boat in the French Riviera in spring or fall when the weather conditions are very good but tourist population is way lower.
