Breathtaking views

La Madonna is about 6 kilometers from Utelle village. After a winding road you'll reach it and you'll be blown away.
The sanctuary itself is pinkish and has a nice interior.

The surrounding area is beautiful and so very quiet. You'll have a 360 degrees view of the Var- and Thinéevalley.

It's worth a detour.

The silence is deafening
Sep 2016 • Family
It's a tiny tiny road that brings you up to this plateau with a view that stretches 360 degrees for 40km in all directions.

At the same time the silence is truly deafening and humbling.

Very much recommended when you believe that the Côte d'Azur must have something more to offer than beach parties, yuppies or other "loud" activities.

What a View !!
May 2016
Went on a driving day to Alpes etc / Utelle which is lower down the mountain & ended up driving to the summit for a spectacular view of the Alpes de Maritimes. We came across a few people at the top & thankfully no one on the single track round going up or down apart from the labrador dogs that were hearding the sheep down the mountain. They just lay in the road until all of the sheep had passed down the road...Not for the faint hearted.

It is a bit of a hike on winding roads to get here, but it is worth it - really can see the top of the southern alpes as well many of the villages that make up the inter Nice area

Go and see for yourself! It has a 360 degrees view over the french Riviera from Nice to Antibes and even further plus all the mountains of Alpes Maritimes. Unbelievable!

Don't miss this great panoramic view

It was breathtaking to see the view from the tophill where the church is, South Meditterranean sea, East and North Alpes. We were at a high altitude, as we saw a helicopter at our altitude passing by.

Modest sanctuary, beautiful landscape
Apr 2011 • Couples
We went there because we like to drive on isolated country roads and see mountains and valleys, so we went along ``la vallée de la Vésubie`` and then climbed the steep mountain up to La Madone d'Utelle at 1147m. The sanctuary was built originally by sailors in the 9th to century to thank La Madone for saving them from a shipwreck. The actual church is from the 19th, it is small, modest and has nothig special, its value is more spiritual than material. Not far from the sanctuary there is a panoramic table and a magnificient view on the mountains and the sea. My advice is to drive very carefully because the road is very narrow with plenty of turns.
