Chapelle Saint-Pierre de Villefranche-sur-Mer

Celebrating the love of old friends in the French Riviera

Known as the Cocteau chapel, Chapelle Saint-Pierre is a Romanesque-style chapel dedicated to the patron saint of fishermen, Saint Peter. Located in Villefranche-sur-Mer in the French Riviera, the chapel was the perfect place for the vow renewal of old friends of Barbara’s who lived in the town and were married twenty-two years ago in Barbara’s living room! Founded in 1295 and renovated in the 1950s with the addition of stunning murals that manifested the artistic and divine vision of Jean Cocteau, the chapel boasts serene hues of pale pink, white, and blue that highlight the space with both gravitas and grace.
