Neighborhood: Day trips

The village of Saint-Étienne de Tinée, situated only a couple of kilometers from Auron ski resort and just over an hour's drive from Nice, will undoubtedly enchant any visitor. You will not find a more picturesque village so full of character with its old stone-built houses. It also has many historic treasures to offer. For example, the frescoes in the church have a preservation order on them and one of the chapels dates right back to the 15th Century. And, although small, the village is still home to several museums: a museum devoted to local traditions, one for religious art, a school museum and even one all about milk! Guided tours are organized on a regular basis to allow you to discover to the full, the heritage of this enchanting place lost in the mountains.
