Serenity and authenticity
Located at the source of the River Tinée, the village nestles at the foot of a majestic mountain cirque and vertiginous cliffs. Stroll through its cobbled streets, admire the wonderful façades of the houses and their sundials, the sharply angled sloping roofs covered with larch shingles and the marvellous Romanesque church with painted façade. In July and August and every September weekend you have no excuse for not visiting. The special “Randobus” shuttle service organised by the Nice Côte d’Azur Borough will provide you with transport from Nice so you can spend the day in the village.
Like Auron and Isola 2000, Saint-Dalmas offers a range of outdoor sports: climbing, mountain hiking, cycling over the high passes, mountain biking, walks and discovery trails, fishing in the high lakes … here nature comes in XXL, amidst the gems of fauna and flora, waterfalls and breathtaking landscapes.
