Overview

Behind the French Riviera’s glamour hide these incredibly beautiful timeless villages that are both nestled in lush Provencal valleys and perched precariously atop rocky crags. The ancient paths wind their way to from these Villages through forests and follow majestic olive groves. The views are simply breathtaking as you walk straddling the coast high above the sea.

The walk starts in Breil sur Roya travels via Italy and the colourful town of Olivetta and then back again to the medieval town of Sospel. From St Agnes, one of the most lauded villages in all of France for its beauty,  it is then on to Gorbio. The centuries-old paths lead straight to the beautiful Italian influenced town of Menton probably the prettiest town on the Riviera. This walk showcases the diversity of the region and the  serene wooded valleys, to lavender fields, ancient villages and ancient architectural treasures.
