If the terra-cotta roofs and electric-blue waters of Villefranche-sur-Mer look familiar, it may be because you recall Sean Connery traipsing among them in the James Bond film Never Say Never Again. This 17th-century fishing port-turned-holiday resort on the edge of Nice, mere miles from Cannes and Monte Carlo, emanates all the glamour of the French Riviera mingled with old-world appeal. With its citadels, cobblestoned streets and a bay big enough to anchor fleets of yachts, one can imagine 007 right at home shaking a martini near its shores.
