T3: The hill-villages of the eastern Riviera
All offered tours can, according to your wishes, be extended, shortened or reorganised. Please contact me for any quote.
Enjoy a wonderful tour into the Sea-Alps, the final endings of the European Alps that fall right into the Mediterranean Sea between Nice and Menton forming magnificent bays and offering spectacular views.
The first stop of the tour will be in the beautiful hill-village of Eze. Plenty of narrow alleys wind their way up to the Exotic Garden on top of the village. This Saracen stronghold of the past has become one of the highlights of the French Riviera. You will enjoy this very special place with its very medieval atmosphere.
From Eze we will take the upper coastal road to La Turbie, where we will do a magnificent photo-stop. On clear days you will have a view on almost the entire French Riviera from Menton to the Esterel mountain range.
The road takes us way up into the mountains where after a 20 minutes’ drive we will reach the village of Peille. Not far away from the buzzing coast you find a completely different French Riviera where time almost stands still. Explore this very unique medieval village on foot and enjoy a breathtaking view. You certainly will not find many tourists here during your visit.
From Peille we take the very panoramic road through the mountains to another jewel of the region: St Agnès. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful villages of France and finds itself in a very strategic position high above the coast of Menton. St Agnes is right on the Maginot Line, a vast fortification of the inter-war-years right on the Italian/French border.
Our way back to the coast we will do a short panoramic drive through the Principality of Monaco.
Of course, this tour can be adapted to your personal wishes
