Comfortable, quiet and good location.

5 of 5
Ideally located between mountains and coast in a charming village this house was clean, quiet and well equipped. There is a well-maintained garden with views of the mountains. The cottage is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and the market. I will return.

Just perfect

5 of 5
We stayed for a week in the larger apartment with our two children and had a simply magical time. The Mercantour and La Brigue really have to be seen to be believed - the pictures barely do them justice and can't convey the way that the smells of provencal herbs fill the air on every mountain path. The location is perfect especially if you want to take small children on walks which are not too taxing for them but nonetheless feel dramatic and properly mountainous. The village and Tende are lovely, the people are friendly, the food is great and the apartment is very attractive and comfortable. On very hot days then just playing in the river or in the swimming pool at Tende kept the children happy for hours. We wished we had planned to stay longer and hope to return soon.
