The splendid villages of the Alpes Maritimes
Many treasures, such as sublime landscapes in the heart of a preserved nature and cultural heritage, are revealed in the heart of the Alpes Maritimes department, combining sea and mountains. However, the region conceals a well-kept secret: the perched villages in the hinterland. These medieval gems reveal an undeniable richness through their architectural jewels.
The charm of the village houses
Villages dominating the valleys or eagle's nests on the sea, one hundred and twenty of them are counted and scattered throughout the Côte d'Azur.
These perched villages in the Alpes Maritimes, picturesque as one could wish for, have always managed to preserve their ancient charm and seem to have suspended time. They overlook valleys, hills, gorges and vertiginous mountains and offer a breathtaking panorama. Hoisted on the rocky heights, the village houses, in the middle of rivers of greenery, seem to cascade down. In the heart of charming narrow streets in calades, they benefit from exceptional situations and breathtaking views. Indeed, with well-chosen addresses, small gardens with regional plants, harmonized architecture and a welcoming neighbourhood, these properties have definite assets.
"At walking distance from the village
In the heart of historic centres, these charming villages on a human scale are unparalleled in their friendliness, where all faces are familiar. Their houses, unique and atypical, have the advantage of being close to all amenities. Indeed, the inhabitants of the villages particularly like the fact that they use the same local shops every day and thus have warm exchanges with the same shopkeepers.
It is true that village life is somewhat similar to country life, without the disadvantages. Yes, the village offers a soothing calm and a real serenity while being "close to everything", allowing to move around and meet most of one's needs without having to use any means of transport.
The village is a residence and the villagers, a family.
