Natural areas

How about a holiday in the natural areas of Nice Côte d’Azur ?

Take the high road and escape to the top of the mountains for a unique experience in the heart of an exceptional fauna and flora. In total, more than 86,000 hectares of forest make up the Nice Côte d’Azur territory. There is plenty to fill your lungs with pure, natural air.

For those who love freedom, put on your walking shoes! First, take a unique trip to the heart of the Mercantour National Park. Discover its plains, its lakes and its green vegetation as far as the eye can see. You will most likely come across many wild animals and will leave indelible memories of your holiday.

Follow the guide and follow the hiking trails to immerse yourself in an ocean of greenery. Follow the marked walking routes and step by step explore nature in all its forms. At the curve of a waterfall, in the shade of a tree or sitting on the banks of a river, make yourself comfortable for a country picnic. Once you have regained your strength, set off again along the high paths. Be sure to ask around, as some of these natural sites are also accessible to children.

Whatever the time of year, the landscape that unfolds before your eyes is spectacular. Wild flowers in spring, orange leaves in autumn, snow in winter … Live to the rhythm of the seasons which make up the beauty of the area. 

Head back down to the coastline and admire the majestic mountains from below. There are also plenty of parks on site to recharge your batteries. But the show is on the sea side. Whether you are on a beach or perched on a hill, marvel at the endless blue sea. When the rays of a sunset are reflected in it, the image is striking. Take advantage of this exceptional panorama to hike along the coast on a contemplative stroll or a sporty escapade.
