“Old town charm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This town was the highlight of our trip. What a beautiful village built on a hill overlooking lovely countryside. We spent 1/2 the day here. We had a great time walking through the old town looking at handmade leather goods, wine shops and art galleries. We will definitely be back.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a charming little village near Nice, nice to stop by for a couple of hours. Most of the shops are overpriced and expensive, with lots of art gallery shops on the Main Street.

Best time to visit is first thing in the morning before the tourist buses arrive.

Stunning place! Can't wait to go back. The village is so beautiful and the views too. Great location to visit the Riviera and the surrounding villages.

“Charming and Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We have visited this beautiful hillside village on numerous occasions and have always found it special. this year it was not crowded which made it more pleasant to wander around and the quality of goods found in the shops from clothing to crafts and food products seemed vastly improved. The galleries full of interesting sculptures and paintings are worth browsing even if not quite ones taste.

“Beautiful hilltop town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This beautiful hill top town is completely walled and a joy to visit. Narrow streets filled with art galleries and some gift shops. Explore the tiny alley ways which run off the main street to get a better non touristy feel. Work your way uphill to the church and find the tiny icecream shop opposite the entrance. Italian, yes, but the icecream is delicious and there is a huge selection of flavours. Enjoy!!
