This little chapel is an excellent example of Jean Cocteau art. It's a little gem in a wonderful village. East my to find and cheap to see inside. A must do if you visit the village.

Travelled to Villefranche from Nice just to visit the chapel, but as I am interested in Jean Cocteau it was a must see. Very small but a total one off experience, totally unique.

Kids are free and 3 euro per adult seems fair to keep this place looking so pristine. Some wonderful chalk pictures of various scenes in the life of St Peter...it's worth lingering a little while as there is something about the eyes of the characters...More

There is a small fee but even if you are not at all religious (like I'm not) you should see the inside of this small chapelle as the decorations by Jean Cocteau are really unique.
