Make a holiday apartment in Roquesteron your home away from home

HomeAway has a collection of holiday apartments in Roquesteron, a beautiful village in Alpes-Maritimes. Most accommodation here benefits from absolutely inspiring views of wooded mountainsides and deep canyons. Your Roquesteron holiday apartment will be a rustic stone retreat, full of character and with lots of outdoor space to unwind in. Roquesteron holiday homes are found in The Esteron Valley; it’s an unfrequented but nonetheless charming setting, perfect if you’re in need of relaxation or want to challenge yourself on a climbing, kayak or hiking adventure.

Things to do

-Local heritage. Roquesteron is very much off the beaten track, and despite the profusion of evocative stone buildings here, the village remains quiet and sleepy throughout the year. Heritage including the St Arige Church is from the 1700s and is decorated with historic paintings and artefacts. Also in Roquesteron are the remnants of local trades, including a forge, cobbler and olive press, as well as old oratories and an 18th Century wash fountain.

-Hikes. The Esteron Valley is a lovely place for hikes, with stark but beautiful, rocky scenery made up of thick pine forest, mountains and scrub. There’s a choice of circular marked trails spanning the valley here, ranging from one to three and a half hours. These encompass mountain peaks, waterfalls and the quiet banks of the Esteron River.

-Watersports. The Esteron also offers great conditions for swimming, canoeing and kayaking. In places this river has cut deep, narrow gorges, creating a fabulous environment for a water-based adventure. Canyoning is an activity growing in popularity, combining a number of disciplines like climbing, abseiling and swimming, and making full use of the rocky landscape around Roquesteron. A little more sedate, fishing is a good way to enjoy the river’s scenery - APPMA licences are available in Roquesteron.

-Day trips. The scenery around Roquesteron can also be enjoyed from the comfort of your car. You could spend a day getting to know the many charming villages in this landscape. Two of the finest, Gourdon and Coaraze have truly spectacular settings. Medieval Gourdon is perched on a promontory, with majestic views of the mountainous landscape. Coaraze is also on a hilltop, but is dwarfed dramatically by the mountains behind it.

-Coast. For a day at the beach, you could take the hour-long drive down to Juan-les-Pins, which lies between Antibes and Nice, and has some of the best beaches in the area. Right on the resort’s waterfront are the semi-private Plage Epi Hollywood and Plage de Gallice. Nice on the other hand is all about shopping and dining, either affordable or very upmarket.

Weather in Roquesteron

In Roquesteron you’ll get Mediterranean weather. In the winter this entails mild conditions, with temperatures that normally get up to ten degrees or so during the day. A high proportion of the annual rainfall tends to occur between October and March. Spring conditions are moderately warm, with highs in the low-20s in May. If you get to a Roquesteron holiday rental in mid-summer then it’s worth packing for hot and dry conditions. July sees very little rain and temperatures that push 30 degrees.

Travel to Roquesteron

The airport for holiday homes in Roquesteron is Nice Côte d’Azur (NCE), which lies 50 kilometres south of the town. This is one of France’s top three airports in terms of traffic, with lots of services flying to this destination from Britain.

The apartment is well equipped,however access is via a few flights of stairs which could be a problem for anyone with mobility problems.We just about managed,but enjoyed our stay

The white glove service matched the elegance and serenity of the apartment. Air conditioning in every room, gorgeous windows, and a well appointed kitchen. Karine was easy to work with and responded right away. We would highly recommend.
