Courmes and surroundings

The village of Courmes is about 40 km ( or a 1 hour drive) away from Nice, and about 20km ( 30min drive) away from Grasse.
This tiny village has a beautiful centre, and is surrounded by the pre-Alps, just at the end of the road through the Gorges of the river Loup.
The whole setting is that of utter tranquillity...
From here there are several recommended walks you can do.

The famous GR51 walk passed through Courmes, as it winds its way south-east towards the coastal town of Menton. Nick-named "the Balcony of the Mediterranean", this walk provides excellent views on both the mountains to the north and east, and on the blue expanse of the Mediterranean Sea towards the south and west.
The map below gives an indication of where Courmes is , and of some of the walks you do in the area..
