Description from owner

Description

A very peaceful place less than an-hour drive from the French Riviera

18th C hunting lodge with swimming pool filled with spring water. Renovated, furnished, tastefully decorated, and well-equipped. For those who love the French countryside. Only 1h away from the sea, the ski slopes, and Nice airport. It is very peaceful, not overlooked, though not isolated. Very nice view from the sunny and shaded terraces

On-site cooking meal available. The village's inn offers a delicious Provencal cuisine with organic vegetables coming from the chef's garden. It is ideal for a large family or a group of friends who want to spend some time together in a private setting. La Penne is 4 km away from Sigale in the Regional Natural Park of the Préalpes d'Azur. The surroundings are often referred as 'the small Switzerland' for its green hills and meadows.

The Occitanie region

Travelling in the Alpes-Maritimes...
The French Riviera / Côte d'Azur and the South Alps, it every season :
* In winter, they enjoy the joys of the mountain or stay by the seaside and breathe the fragrance of the mimosa
* In Spring, the revival of the garden with the most coloured bouquets
* In summer, it is a festival of ideas for all : Beaches, music and museums in Mediterranean background, excursions under the sun of the mountain pastures, trips or extreme sports.
* The autumn, when everything is quiet. It is the time to enjoy this particular calmness, this light beyond compare which sweeps the villages both high up in the country and those by the seaside.

The different valleys/areas of Alpes-Maritimes :

* Loup/Esteron valleys & Préalpes: Massif less than 30 minutes from the Riviera. Villages with old stone houses and wild areas, marvellous panoramic views and wide open spaces where you can enjoy leisure activities or extreme sports…
* Var valley : Gateway to the Mercantour National Park... River fishing or excursions in summer, skiing, surfing or snow scootering in winter
* Tinée valley : From Mercantour to Var... Long and sinuous valleys, small mountain routes hanging from the sides of the valleys with these invigorating and sporting resorts, lively and picturesque villages...
* Vésubie valley : The area called 'Suisse Niçoise' (little Switzerland near Nice) is surprisingly green and cool. All sports will be available to you: fishing, ski, horse-riding, mountain climbing…
* Roya & Bévéra valleys : Here, you are in the most oriental part of the department, with a rich history shared between France and Italy going over many years.
* Nice & Menton Area : Along the bay between Nice & Menton, discovered the most beautiful view and landscape of the Riviera
* Antibes Cannes Grasse Vence Area : A peaceful land between hills and sea where generous sunshine is a constant feature. A land of inspiration, full of beauty, peace and pleasure.

Penne

La Penne is a small and simple little village. It's main attraction (for us) is its idyllic, pastoral setting, with forested hills just behind and a beautiful panorama of fields and hills stretching out in front.

About all that remains of the medieval heritage is the square donjon tower standing above the village.
There's no commerce in the village. There is one restaurant (L'auberge de la Penne); the menu looks very good, but it's a bit pricey for a casual lunch-time meal.
The 13th-century Saint-Roch church, sitting across the fields just below the village, has a tall clock tower (still chiming the hours and half-hours) with a pyrmidal varnished-tile roof [Photo 9]. The cemetery here has the two Roman steles.
Chanan Valley
La Penne is one of 11 communes located in the valley between the Clue de St Auban and eastward to Ascros, south of Touët-sur-Var and north of Roquesteron. In October 2007, these communes (Briançonnet, Gars, Amirat, Les Mujouls, La Rochette, Sallagriffon, Saint Pierre, La Penne, Saint Antonin and Ascros) proposed a communal grouping into Le Val de Chanan as a means of developing tourisme in the area, somewhat lost in the beautiful but remote mountains of the Alpes-Maritiems


History
Name
First record, 11th century Penna de Cannan. The château des Glandevès was listed in 1079.
Gallo-Roman: There are two Roman steles at the cemetery, one at the entrance, and there are Roman tombs at the hamlet of Besseuges, 4 km west of the village.
Medieval: La Penne was a medieval fortress controlling access to the Var valley. It was ruled first by the lords of Thorame-Glandevès, then by the of Authier in the 17th century, and by the Durands in 1778.


Hiking

Hiking is good here, with a number of trails crossing the village.
The GR510 grande randonnée goes northwest from La Penne, up over the Col de Besseuges (1056 m) and down into the valley at Puget-Théniers.
Just north of the village, from the D2211a road, there's a short loop hike up across the top of the ridge, or a longer loop hike out towards the east and the Champ de Toudon, returning via Le Pin-de-Noguiet and the GR510.
The GR510 grande randonnée southeast of La Penne passes Le Pin-de-Noguiet and then Saint Antonin, about 4 km away.

Dining

L'Auberge de la Penne
We noted above that the menu was a bit pricy for a casual lunch-time meal. We usually look for something simple mid-day, so we can spend our time exploring rather than sitting and enjoying French cuisine.
If you're after quality rather than speed, this auberge changes its menu every day, uses only fresh produce, some from their own organic farm. Everything except the bread and wine is home made, including the pasts and ice cream. And the dining room has a marvelous, panoramic view.
