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.

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
