Explore Bonson with the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau

Clinging to the Mont Vial mountain range, Bonson stands at an altitude of 480 m overlooking the Var and Estéron valleys. Typical perched village in the hinterland of Nice, it stretches along a ridge, like a vertiginous belvedere, and has preserved part of its medieval architectural heritage. Its south-facing slopes are planted with terraces planted with olive trees.

Not to be missed


Olive Festival

Situated on a rocky outcrop, Bonson is home to many centuries-old olive trees. In early summer, the local people celebrate this heritage with a traditional festival.
