    Being labeled as "the highest coastal village in Europe" one understands that a drive here will not be that easy. The road winds a lot and rises steepily. The narrow access road climbs at a rate of 100 m vertical for each kilometre of length, but offers around almost every bend a spectacular view into the valleys, over the surrounding mountains, towards the mediterrenean sea and finally ... towards Sainte-Agnès. From Menton one can reach it in around 30 minutes and the road is nicknamed the "balcony of the Cote d'Azur".

    According to legend, the castle was built by a Saracen Prince Haroun, who had fallen in love with a young Provencial girl. The castle was restored in 1502, but today is only a ruine. Enough of the ancient walls remain, complete with arrow slits, to give a good feeling of what it was like in medieval times. Archeological digging at the castle have recovered some 23 skeletons along with other artifiacts, showing that here was already a civilisation in the Bronze Age or even neolithic era.

    See my accommodation tip for more information on the hotel.

    I had dinner here and it was a really lovely meal of venison daube, homemade ravioli and lemon meringue tart for dessert. The atmosphere is very homey and casual.
