Public transit from Nice airport

Can anyone give me information regarding train or bus transportation from Nice airport to Villefranche? Or would a taxi be more convenient?

there is a company called Shuttledirect,
you can check what they charge
or
you can go to Nice
Nice center, direct every 20 min: 6h-23h45 3.50 €
roundtrip 6.40 € 10 min
Nice Gare SNCF every 30 min: 8h-21h 3.50 €
Nice Gare SNCF (#23) every 10 min: 6h-20h50 (19h55 sun) 1.30 € 10 min City bus and check the train service
or
a bus from the airport to Monaco/ Menton and taxi from there.

Uh, Villefranche is right next to Nice, west of Monaco and Menton. There are buses to Villefranche from the central bus station in Nice. This is at some little distance from the train station. Maybe research buses from the airport to the central bus station. Or there may even be a direct bus.

Take an airport bus to the main bus terminal in Nice. Catch another bus to Villefranche. Bus #100 and another one (forgot the #) will pass VFSM. Cost 5,30 euro. It is very easy and cheap.

There's an airport bus that goes directly to the Nice train station and then there is a train that stops in Villefranche right above the beach. It's about a 10 minute train ride out of Nice and has spectacular views.

Above is correct, except probably the cost. At the Nice airport, you buy a compulsory one-day ticket for €4, even just to get to Nice city center (vs €1,30 for a single ticket when bought in city center) BUT this day ticket is valid to many out of Nice city zone, incl. VFSM. Perhaps georgiegirl, from the cost you mentioned (5,30 = 4 + 1,30), you either bought a extra 1,30 ticket unnecessarily OR you did airport - Nice and Nice - VFSM on 2 different days, I imagine. When you go from city center to VFSM, €1,30 single ticket is enough. In any case the bus in this area is so cheap.

Of course taxi is quicker, if you don't mind the cost.
