Utelle and Madone d'Utelle

The village of Utelle is about 9 km away from St Jean-la-Rivière, along a scenic and very winding road.
Far from the tourist crowds, it is a haven of tranquility. Wander through the tiny streets, and then up to the viewing area which offers impressive 360 degrees views of the surrounding area... the beauty of the landscape, the silence of the surroundings, all have a very relaxing and calming effect...

Some 6km from the village of Utelle, lies the Sanctuary of Madone d'Utelle. The road is narrow and winding, and you need to be aware of oncoming traffic and in most places there isn't enough space for two cars to pass each other; but it's all worth it, the views, the silence and tranquility all make it a worthwhile visit.
