Entrevaux Things to Do

  • Walk around the exterior of Entrevaux

    Walk around in all directions to take picture. You have a coffee in a cafe right next to the entrance of the village. Go also further to the opposite hillside and take pictures. You take both close up and far-distance photos.

  • Narrow alleys ways

    The village is a maze of narrow alleyways, and densely packed dwellings. From this stems the cohesion and community of village life. You can't ignore your neighbours. You live together.

  • Rooftiles in the traditional style

    Of the many towns, cities and villages I can recall , the best sight is often the view from above of the jigsaw of terracotta rooftiles, a natural disorder of human endeavour and difference. While roofs cannot be seen from the ground, the character of a place often comes together in this helicopter view of the fiercely independent collage of shapes...

    It is easy to go from Nice. Be careful the train does not go from the Nice Central Station (Gare Nice Ville). It starts from the station ten minutes' walk from the Central Station, called "Chemins de Fer de Provence". The train has only one compartment and you can find a seat but later it will be crowded. Before you go, make sure to check the time for your return trip. Its better to busy a round trip ticket. It cost a round trip €18. Sit on the right side of the train facing the moving direction because you can see nice views later (one photo attached). The nice views start about 30 minutes later.

    Station address: 4 bis rue Alfred Binet, 06000 Nice

    While wandering in the main square of Historic Entrevaux my wife noticed a sign "Fromage de Chevre" and an arrow pointing down a narrow twisting side street - hey they're all narrow twisting side streets. Her translation was "horse cheese" so licking my lips in anticipation of yet another French cheese, we followed the sign.

    Walked into the small shop and saw a potpourri of delicious looking jars and bottles and then met the very friendly owner of the shop - who was Dutch. Luckily her English was great and so we asked to try the horse cheese - NO, it's goat cheese and she resisted the obvious temptation to call us a couple of old goats for the translation error.

    Had a taste and yes its salty and great. Bought a small jar of the cheese packed in olive oil and eventually opened and enjoyed about 2 weeks later. Not wanting to waste a drop of the oil infused with cheese, that was eaten with bread with a sprinkling of peccorino cheese.

    About the photo - shop owner happily poses wearing my Aussie bush hat with Sandra making sure we buy the cheese.

  • Mind your shoes!

    When you go to visit Entravoux, dont forget to wear good walking shoes -- the road is stone, and wearing high heeled shoes will not suit... though will look special! Unforgettable view from the top! In all directions!!!
