On the French side 25km along the coast is the well known resort of Menton. A short way beyond are Monaco/Monte Carlo and Nice.
The area is well known for its wine, olive oil and cut flowers in fact the area is known as the "Riviera of the Flowers". It is ideally located for touring Provence, Cote D Azure, Italian Riviera and the Alps. Plus the lovely area and villages surrounding Apricale.
The apartment is the ground floor of a 400 year old property, unusual for the village it is all on one level and although small it is full of character. It is fully furnished with washing machine, DVD player, fridge cooker etc. It sleeps two. It has a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom with shower all with vaulted ceilings and a balcony(essential but rare in the village due to strict conservation rules)getting the afternoon and evening sun with views up, down and across the valley to olive groves.It is about 50 metres from the Piazza.
The picturesque medieval village stands on a hilltop not too high about 290 metres, enough to allow for unpolluted air and magnificent views.
It is very much a locals village with two small food stores and a small gift shop.There is free Wi Fi in the Piazza. There are a few studios producing ceramic goods, paintings etc. There are 6 restaurants serving typical dishes of the region including wild boar and rabbit. All are excellent and in easy walking distance of the apartment .A number of festivities are held throughout the summer including dances, concerts, plays etc. During first two weeks of August a play is acted out in the Piazza, the actors use various windows and balconies as props for the play.
Fortunately the cobbled alleys are too narrow to be used by traffic and cars are parked in adjacent car parks which are about 200 metres from the apartment .Being close to the border most locals speak Italian, French and a little English.
