About the location
The village is fairly isolated ( population of village and surrounding area approx 100) so very peaceful but only 6 kilometres from the town of Puget Theniers which has every commodity. It is pedestrian and on a rise but our house is situated on the edge so there is easy access and parking.
It has a museum, which organises events in the summer and a small hotel restaurant. A small river runs at the foot of the village and there is a childrens playground and sports area..
There are many walks that start directly here into the mountains.
Puget Theniers also has a swimming pool, open in the summer and a dynamic summer arts festival.
The city of Nice is only one hour away and is linked by a bus service which costs only 3 euros return for those wish to enjoy the beach, shops and restaurants.
The ski resort of Valberg is only 45 minutes away and many other beautiful mountain villages and gorges. The lavender fields are at just over an hours drive as are the famous gorges de verdon.
There is also a station with a rail link on the famous "train des pignes" between Nice and Digne. There are many lovely villages to be discovered on this line.
