Peillon*

*Peillon:

This magnificent fortified medieval village clings to a cliff face overlooking the "Paillon de l'Escarène" valley. Visiting Peillon is a true voyage back in time with its tortuous narrow winding streets crossed by vaulted passage ways and wide staircases.The tall stone built houses, stuck together in circular fashion seem to be literally carved out of the rock face. The sun washed ochres of the façades, the stones and tiles of the roofs blend perfectly with the landscapes which surround the village.

 

Brumous Peillon, Alpes Maritimes, France.

The most spectacular village I ever.......drove to!!!! If you don't like driving windy uphill narrow roads, I don't recommend it!....by the way it is a beautiful village whith fantastic point of view. We were not lucky that day due to rain and cloudiness.
