BEAULIEU, a village in the French department of Alpes-Maritimes. Pop. (rgo6) 1460. It is about 4 111. by rail E. of Nice (I4 m. from Villefranche), and on the main line between Marseilles and Mentone; it is also connected with Nice and Mentone by an electric tramway. Of late years it has become a much frequented winter resort, and many handsome villas (among them that built by the 3rd marquess of Salisbury) have been constructed in the neighbourhood. The harbour has been extended and adapted for the reception of yachts. (W. A. B. C.)
