18 km north of Nice, take the D2204 then the D321 on the right.
Layered on gentle hills planted with pines and olive trees, Blausasc is a place blessed by the gods, so peaceful that you will have the impression of being a long way from the overcrowded French Riviera.
Clean and pretty, Blausasc is not a real village, rather a scattering of houses, many of which are old, often restored and repainted in pretty cheerful Italian colors - pastel pinks, yellows, soft browns - sometimes with clever trompe-l'oeil to decorate a facade.
Several squares are brand new, the one where the pretty neo-baroque church stands, painted white and orange pink, is particularly successful, with its large fountain and its washhouse, its plane tree and its two cypresses, its terrace with a panoramic view of the landscape. around.
If we add the superb building to the facade enriched with this art of the poor called trompe-l'oeil: false balustrades, false marbles and false friezes, you will have a summary of the art of living in the South
Enchanted by this somewhat arid but so beautiful Mediterranean nature - secular olive trees, pine and oak forests - lulled by the song of birds and cicadas in summer, perhaps you will never want to leave Blausasc again. And we would understand you!
