This cottage, with it's beautiful views and location on the edge of the National Park of Mercantour, is the perfect get-away from the life of the big city.

Go back in time and visit the medieval and picturesque villages of Entrvaux, Guillaumes, Barels, Peone and Valberg, to name but a few. Or, if you fancy something more modern, drive down to the coast and visit Antibes with its luxurious harbour and markets or take a stroll along any of the sunny warm beaches, enjoy the buzz and high fashion of Cannes or simply take a walk through the bustling centre of Nice.
Locally, you are a mere 5km from the nearest amenities in the growing local village that has everything you might need in your day-to-day life.

If dinning out is more your style and you don't want to go to the local village, then a fantastic traditional Auberge-Restaurant is just a short stroll down the road.
