Come and discover this charming mountain village just over a 1 hour drive from Nice, perfect for a family day out with children of all ages.

Many different walking paths are near by and suitable for a gentle family stroll or a more energetic trek.

Begin with a picnic by a small lake, a short and easy10 minute walk from the car park. It is prohibited to swim but the surroundings are magnificent and you can take a ball to play with or go for one of the longer walks from this point.

For those who prefer having a proper toilet on hand rather than disappearing behind a tree, a public one is in the village a quick 5 minute walk away.

You can combine the walks with mini-golf and a go on the adventure playground, a pony ride or a bounce on a trampoline. The more energetic ones can drive a few minutes further to the starting point of the summer toboggan slope.
