Local area

Les Alpes d’Azur apartments are located in Place de Nice, a large square with interesting buildings including some with ‘trompe-l’oeil’ facades, and a shaded terrace café; the Café des Platanes.

There is a very nice 'epicerie' opposite Les Alpes d'Azur which sells just about everything including fresh bagettes and croissants. There is another grocer nearby, an excellent butcher (who will deliver and take advance orders), a post office and several restaurants in La Brigue, including the ever-popular 'Pizzeria Brigasques'.

La Brigue is one of France’s most lovely mountain villages and a curious mix of Italian and French (it was Italian until 1947). Set close to the border in Alpes-Maritime, La Brigue is superbly situated:

  •  right on the edge of the Mercantour National Park
  • 25 minutes to the excellent ski resort of Limone Piemonte in Italy
  •  45 minutes to the coast at Ventimiglia
  •  under an hour to Menton and Monaco and 80 minutes to Nice.

The area is great for:

  •  Stunning mountain hikes and views
  •  Climbing and the unusual sport of via ferrata
  •  Canoeing, rafting and canyoning
  •  Skiing and snowboarding
  •  Visits to the seaside.

There is a rail station in La Brigue. Trains run from La Brigue to Cuneo, Nice and Ventimiglia. The journeys north of La Brigue and between Breil and Nice are stunning – wonderful scenery and winding tunnels.

Mercantour National Park/Vallée des Merveilles

La Brigue lies right at the edge of the Mercantour. This beautifully rugged national park has wonderful paths, streams and lakes set in the valleys of 3000 meter-high mountains. There are wonderful flowers and some interesting wildlife.

Fishing There are hundreds of mountain streams stocked with trout. Fishing Licenses are usually available from cafés near the fishing areas.

Golf There is a 9-hole golf course in Vievola, 5km north of Tende.

Hiking and walking There are extensive walks of varying degrees of challenge in every direction.

Rafting The deep gorges and valleys of the southern Alps provide abundant rafting opportunities. There are centres in St Dalmas de Tende, Tende and Breil.


There are three starting points for skiing at Limone. By far the best is Limone 1400 - all ski areas, with a good mixed range of runs, only 25 minutes’ drive from La Brigue.

Limone Piemonte is another 5 minutes down on the Italian side. It is a very pretty town and worth visiting.

We like skiing at Limone. It is a popular day visit area for people from Monaco, Nice and Ventimiglia as well as Turin. It is quieter and more ‘local’ than the ‘big name’ Alpine resorts that attract lots of package tours

There is also some cross country skiing.
