On Foot Holidays - Alpes Mmes

On Foot Holidays - Alpes Mmes Overview

A self-guided hike in one of the most remote parts of France. Walk from La Brigue, on the France/Italy border, down the Roya Valley to beautiful Menton on the Riviera, taking in ancient Saorge, Breil, Sospel and Ste Agnes. This is a great walk for those who are seeking to move up a walking grade, and the route is well signed.

Villages perchés to Belle Epoque Menton

After a spectacular railway journey you start your walk in one of the most remote parts of France. The medieval village of La Brigue offers the chance to explore fascinating winding alleyways and old town houses, as do the villages perchés high over the Roya valley and the town of Saorge, which climbs steeply up the valley side. Visit the ancient towns of Breil and Sospel and stay in the astonishing mountain-top village of Ste Agnès, with views across to the Mediterranean. Finally arrive in Menton itself, Belle Epoque faded splendour now being restored to its former glory, and a stroll down the promenade before dining well in one of its restaurants. This is a great walk for those who are seeking to move up a walking grade, and the route is well signed. Walked by On Foot staff: Simon, Mary and Debbie
