50 km north of Nice by the D2204 to Sospel and then on the D2566.
Situated at 800 meters altitude encircled by mountains Moulinet is built on a small plateau cut by two rivers the Bevera and the valley of the Peira-Cava.
Thanks to the rivers and waterfalls the vegetation is rich and varied making Moulinet a verdant oasis set within chestnut, oak, beech and larch woodland.
You can even see sheep, goats and rare for the South of France, even cows, grazing in the fields!!
The picturesque village with its steeply sloping stepped streets, vaulted passageways, washing places and tall ancient houses nestling up to each other is well worth the visit and very typical of the area.
