Touët de l'Escaréne
22 Km from Nice, take the 2204.
Touët de L'Escarène is located on the road to the col de Braus, in the hinterland of Menton.
The village is on the slopes of a hill and is one of the smallest commune in the Alpes Maritimes.
Stop in the village and you'll be surprised by the ancient stone-built houses with thick walls, vaulted passageways, and narrow paved streets stepping up the slopes of the village.
It is as if a part of the village has kept its ancient decor intact, and some streets could easily be used a back drops for films set at the beginning of the century.
