Villefranche-sur-Mer in August is a much different experience than it was in April of last year. It's summer after all, and summer is taken very seriously in the south of France. There are literally ten times as many yachts anchored in the bay, and it's standing room only on the beaches and in the cafés and restaurants. This year the weather has been particularly warm and people have flocked to the Riviera in record numbers. Some might see that as cause for complaining, but I'm just happy to be here.
