Condo/Apartment
Situated on the top floor of the old customs house in Breil, the flat has a living room, kitchen/dining room, one bedroom and a bathroom. It is light, white and modern. Every room, and a large, private and sunny terrace has a panoramic view overlooking the lake, village and surrounding mountains. North-facing, the flat is never hot since there is a gentle summer breeze coming through the windows. In other seasons the double-glazing keeps any nippy air at bay. The flat sleeps 3-4. The bedroom has 2 beds which can convert to a double bed and the living room a double sofa-bed. The kitchen has the usual mod cons, an iron, picnic gear, and a radio/CD player.

All linen is provided, including towels. The bathroom has a shower only. Located on the edge of the town, it is a 5 minute walk from the local patisserie which produces fantastic food for all meals, a supermarket, a butcher (so charming you rarely get away without a full discussion of your menu and several bottles of his wine), a deli which also sells mouth-watering fruit and vegetables, the post-office, and a tourist office. The town has several restaurants, pizzerias, cafes/bars, a pharmacy, a hairdresser, hardware shops – it’s all there. The railway station is 10 minutes walk away and trains go to Nice (an hour) or Ventimiglia and the coast. There are plenty of walks of all types, including the old Ventimiglia-Turin salt route which goes through the village. The massive Parc de Mercantour with cave paintings, lakes and lots of trails, is just up the valley. You can swim in the river or a fantastic nearby gorge. Otherwise the sea is 25 mins away. There is white water rafting too. And plenty of culture in Italy (5 mins drive) or along the coast. More

We spent most of the time at the flat on the wonderful terrace, simply looking at the view over the town, the lake and the mountains. Breil is small but had everything we needed in the way of bank, post office, shops, cafes and tourist...More

Stayed a week at the apartment. Best feature was the view overlooking the river. Have to say I spent most of my time on the terrace where we ate breakfast and sometimes lunch. There is plenty of space along with table and chairs. There was...More

Many thanks for your comprehensive review and useful suggestions for other visitors. Re the bedroom, guests are welcome to change the bed arrangement to suit their needs. There is linen for either option and two beds so as to be more flexible.

We found the apartment ideal for our needs - the roof top terrace was the perfect spot for meals with great views over the lake and village. The apartment was well appointed with everything we required to eat in when we made that choice. We...More
