Le Corne d'Or (Golden Horn) on the Medium Corniche is a stop between Mont-Boron and Villefranche-sur-Mer. It is a hilly site appreciated for its unblocked view on the city and its buildings or villas built in the post-WWI economic boom. More affordable than the residential area of Mont Boron, this other side of the Niçoise dolce vita seduces seniors looking for calm as well as a working Niçoise population wishing to get away.
Villefranche-sur-Mer has fewer turn-of-the-century villas but more Provençale houses and 1930-1940s style. What attracts foreign clientele is the quality of life this fishermen's village offers, its chapel was decorated by Jean Cocteau. Its open view onto the Cap Ferrat and the harbour renowned to divers for its depth takes part in this craze. Higher up (Boulevard Léopold II), this panorama is breath-taking, just like the price of its most prestigious mansions that make wealthy foreigners happy, for example, the famous villa Leopolda, the former property of the King of Belgium. The village of Villefranche-sur-Mer, with its paved and shaded streets, its magnificent walk along the sea with good tables and sandy beaches attract a Parisian clientele as well as a large English-speaking community who has not forgotten that Villefranche-sur-Mer, in post-war Europe, used to be a haven for the US Marine and housed almost 230 American families.
