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

Strong attention to detail with lots of care and thought from the owners in creating a great experience. Well maintained with full complement of amenities that you might need. Spectacular location assuming, like me, you're not looking for banging bars on your doorstep. If you want to book in this area, you're unlikely to do better.

Several emails were exchanged, and they provided photos of the route, as this little gem is not on the beaten track. Bottles of beer and other cold drinks in the fridge to welcome us. Thanks to the photos, we found the property with little difficulty. Do not be put off on arrival by the plain, windowless wall adjacent to the entrance door. The studio has a window at the rear with panoramic view across a deep valley to a few neighbouring houses on the other side. We spent much of our time on the deck chairs and patio set on the decking outside the entrance door. A sunny but shaded spot. This abuts a narrow gravel driveway past the property to a scattering of other owner occupied residences, but is very quiet, with vehicles passing only occasionally as resident families go about their business. The inside of the studio and all of its equipment and furnishings are only a few months old, and everything from kitchen to shower is pristine. Everything was provided, from hairdrier to iron to poker dice, packs of cards and everything in between. TV is French only, so I suggest you download movies or TV series to phone or tablet and connect via a suitable HDMI cable for some evening viewing. The studio is a lesson in how to maximise the available space and fit it out with everything a travelling couple or small family needs for a pleasant break. If you are looking for low cost and compact, but beautifully appointed self catering accommodation, relatively close to the expensive French Riviera resorts of Monte Carlo, Monaco, Nice and Cannes, this is the place for you. We have very few words of French, and the owners just a little more English. This was disappointing only because it would have been nice to talk about our backgrounds and to engage more with them and their two delightful young sons. My only reservation would be that the studio is 10 miles into the hills. Roads are narrow and windy, but just take it steady and enjoy the view. I came here on a "road trip", so it was perfect for me. You will need your own transport to make the most of this hideaway location

Thierry, the owner met us upon arrival to hand over the keys and explain everything we needed to know. The villa was spotless with a few provisions provided by Thierry and his wife to make our first night more comfortable. The terrace and pool areas are magnificent and a great place to relax during the day and eat and drink in the evening. There are 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus an extra area suitable for kids in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped and there is an outside grill for bbq's in the evening. The village is very quaint with all essential shops. We would definitely recommend and will likely return to this great place.
