The village borders communal forests and the Natural Reserve Park Mercantour with the Vallée des Merveilles, and has many mountain hike tracks, and massive old forts from WW2 built on mountain tops. Close by the medieval villages of Saorge, La Brigue, and Sospel. The river makes a good place for fishing trout.
The community encompasses the Maglia gorge, famous for canyoning visitors from around the world. Kayaking is also done on the rapids of the river Roya.
The property overlooks the village (15-20 minute walk to the village) and has many fruit, nut and olive trees. The main area is fenced (to keep children in and animals out) but the whole property extends into the adjoining forest. There is no through or passing traffic, only the sounds of nature.
