Bluenery Academy offers a complete range of multi-level personalized courses, from beginner to expert. Courses are taught in several languages and always in small group sizes.
Open water sessions take place in the calm waters of the bay of Villefranche sur mer.
Villefranche sur Mer is a small iconic village of the French Riviera set in the world-famous Bay of Villefranche, only 30mn away from Nice International Airport.
Its rich historical past, charming architecture and turquoise waters have attracted generations of artists and travellers for over a century.
The sunny coastline is filled with stunning scenery and offers countless activities and outings, in one of the most striking locations in the North Mediterranean Sea.
Over the last thirty years, the region has established itself as a haven for freediving competitors and aficionados alike. The village of Villefranche has hosted many competitions, and renowned athletes have set world records in its deep blue waters.
The bay is an excellent spot for training or discovering freediving, as it provides shelter from wind, boasts calm seas and all the depth one could wish for.
Our two dive boats are moored in Port de la Santé, a small harbour located right in front of the old part of town, where most shops, restaurants and museums can be found.
All our main dive spots are just a couple of minutes away.
The Academy itself is surrounded by peaceful gardens, where our theory and yoga classes take place, and is located in Villefranche’s citadel, overlooking the bay and just a stone’s throw away from the shoreline.
