Situated in the heart of the Côte d'Azur, between Monaco, Nice and Cannes, Villefranche-sur-Mer is a small town famous for its splendid bay. Its picturesque bay and its beautiful medieval centre seduced Le Sidaner on his first visit to Villefrance-sur-Mer in 1910. Painted during this time the artist has depicted the scenic bay at night, the lights reflecting off the clear water.

The town always retained a special place in his heart as he retuned often between 1924 and 1928 at the Hôtel Welcome, in the heart of the old harbour, in order to recreate the magic of the place.
