A Week on the French Riviera #4

Here are some more scenes around Villefranche-sur-mer ... 

a dapper shopper at the antiques market

The Chapelle Saint-Pierre (Saint Peter's Chapel) dates from the sixteenth century. Used as a storeroom for local fishermen's nets and equipment for most of the 19th and early part of the 20th century, it was restored in 1957 with Jean Cocteau adding his now-famous murals depicting the life of the saint and of local fishermen. 
A look up at Eglise Saint-Michel (Saint Michael's Church) in the heart of old town, was built in the 1750s 

The Wine Pier at this hotel serves breadsticks, olives, chips, peanuts and a bowl of sweets. We chose this for our last meal in France.

This neighbor's rooftop patio has inspired me to add more "lush wildness" to my garden spaces

The Rue Obscure or “Dark Street” is a passage way under the harbour front houses which dates back to 1260.

Crepe Nutella - very very good

I miss this view!

Adieu, Villefranche-sur-mer and France. Nous reviendrons un jour! I hope you have enjoyed our travelblog.
