Préalpes d’Azur Regional Natural Park

With a total of 49 municipalities for a total area of 96,284m², the Regional Natural Park will offer you a variety of landscapes to amaze you near the French Riviera.

The Parc Naturel Régional (PNR) des Préalpes d’Azur is a regional natural park extending broadly through the Grasse backcountry and well into the foothills of the Alps in the Alpes-Maritimes department. It is a rural, but inhabited territory, a living and dynamic territory, one that is delicately balanced and united by a common objective.

This area is nationally recognized for its tremendous natural and cultural heritage and unique, vastly varied landscapes. The PNR classification is awarded territories of remarkable character that also nurture sustainable development projects.

It is primarily a tool that facilitates expertise, activity development, education, dialogue, and mediation for the protection and promotion of many forms of heritage and to further local development.

This territory, set between the French Riviera and the summits of the Mercantour, is composed of medium mountains, gorges, forests, and farming valleys, making it one of France’s great biodiversity treasures : the blend of Mediterranean and alpine influences in a protected region gives it exceptional natural depth and breadth.

The Parc Naturel Régional des Préalpes d’Azur can be visited year-round. It is a territory in motion with astounding cultural, linguistic, and historic heritage, enchanting hilltop villages boasting breathtaking views, savoir-faire specific to the region, and well-known personalities from both the past and the present.
