We come to this great village every year while in the area. It is an excellent way to escape the heat, have a walk, and see a beautiful village. Be aware that you must park at the bottom of the hill (parking is free) and...More

A mideval village on the hills. The place is small but unique. The view is stunning. all the coastal plain as well as the town steep below the cliff is at your fingertips. The atmosphere is very nice. In December it was very quite.

This little village, perched on a rocky mountainside, is much more authentic and pleasant to visit than the more famous St Paul de Vence. Though still touristy, the atmosphere is calmer and the views are more stunning. Get some “pain d’épices” from La Marquisette before...More

The village is located a very nice spot which on a clear day will give you an awesome view of Cote D'azur. It's a small village with architecture that give you feel that you have travelled back in time.

Very quaint picturesque old village which can offer stunning views but be aware that because of its height it can often be shrouded in low lying cloud meaning this is rather moot. Tends to be somewhat of a tourist trap in terms of the shops...More

Beautiful town with stunning views. It’s absolutely tiny so you won’t need long here but there are some lovely cafes and local shops. You need cash here as 10 Euro min on cards due to poor reception
