This was my second trip to Villefranche; the first time was 13 years ago. I was hoping to go inside Cocteau's Chapelle St. Pierre but it was closed that day (on a Friday, no less). Mercifully, it was open this time around.
Even though I couldn't get into the chapel, I found myself sitting and taking in the beauty of Villefranche and writing in my journal for over an hour. I even imagined that Villefranche might be the kind of town I'd want to live in someday.
The following pages detail my visit to the chapel, the hotel in which Cocteau stayed and the Citadel.
The photos vary wildly in brightness for some reason. There's this photo for instance, and then there's the beautiful bright postcard-quality photo you see on my main intro page. All taken at the high noon. Sorry about that.
- Pros:Tranquil, postcard-pretty.
- Cons:Ummm... are there any?
- In a nutshell:One of the most beautiful spots on earth.
I took this photo after I left the hotel, now that I knew which room Cocteau stayed in. Don't ask me why some of these... more travel advice
This is the welcome mat at the entrance of the Hotel Welcome, an example of the tribute the hotel pays to Cocteau. more travel advice
