This remote, high altitude (800m/2625ft) village is located about 64km/40miles north east of Nice. Perched on a ledge overlooking the Valley of the Vésubie, magnificent views are on offer.

On the Salt Road

On the Old Salt Road or route de sel between Nice and Piedmont, this is a fascinating old village. Called Uels in the Occitan language there are some interesting buildings including the 14th century Église St-Véran with a fine carved wooden alter in addition piece. Moreover, nearby you will find the Chapelle des Pénitents-Blancs.

Don’t miss: the Madonne d’Utelle located about 6km/3.7 miles south west of the village.
