If you are passing through Villefranche and visit the tiny chapel of St-Pierre and if you are taken up with Jean Cocteau's art, you might want to ask the docent about a nearby private home named Villa Santo Sospir which features a huge collection of...More

This small chapel has historical significance because Cocteau painted it, but it's not the admission price if you're not his fan. They won't let you take pictures either. I was able to go as part of a tour, but I never would have gone on...More

Do not miss this beautiful, moving chapel graced with Jean Cocteau's paintings. It's unlike anything you've ever seen. 3E and more than worth it. One minute walk from the Welcome Hotel.

If you enjoy artistic symbolism, this tiny room (really very small) is worth a 3 euro visit. Jean Cocteau painted the 12th century chapel with some fascinating symbols of fish and christianity. On a rainy day, after a leisurely lunch, we paid a visit and...More

This is a very small almost non-religious chapel by Jean Cocteau. It wont take long to see the very interesting way he has presented and decorated this small building. It only cost 3 euros and is worth at least that.

The town's cultural highlight is here, where artist Jean Cocteau decorated the chapel. Its interior is intriguing,with each of Cocteau's surrealist works is explained in English

This chapel was painted with frescos by Jean Cocteau early in the take long, but it is certainly worth planning a visit during their open hours.

Cocteau was a genius and what he did inside the chapel is splendid. It was not pricey and for thirty minutes you can enjoy the art of Mr Cocteau and this is something to remember.

A must see in villefranche. Essentially a one room chapel but what a room! The figures seem to spring from the walls. Sadly no pictures but you can buy fantastic postcards. Opposite is the hotel welcome where Cocteau used to stay and is a good...More

What a wonderful, hidden gem! I guess it's not really hidden -- it's just that you can't really know by the modest exterior of this little chapel what's inside..... Wonderful art -- contemplative -- simple, but complex... Worth the time and money to see.
