Bike

Welcome on the Côte d'Azur where many cycling pros live in the surrounding area from Menton, Monaco, to Nice and Grasse. The Top of The Palm villa is ideally situated for both road and mountain bike rides all around the year.

Road Cycling

The coastline is within 15 minutes’ ride from the villa.

Heading east, you can ride towards Nice, Monaco and Menton or carry on into Italy along the basse cornice, through Villefranche, St Jean Cap Ferrat and Beaulieu sur Mer. Why not return via the village of Eze or the legendary Col de la Madone?

Heading west will bring you to Antibes, Cannes and the Esterel mountains. Once you have reached Frejus, you can return via the Lac du Saint Cassien and the capital of perfumes, Grasse.

The coastline is stunning and the temperate climate makes it an ideal training ground for the winter months.

For those of you who love the climbs, turn to the Col de Vence or Col d'Ecre or climb to the village of Gourdon. Those are all about 2 hour training rides but can be combined with more climbing in the inland such as the magical tour through Coursegulles, Roquesteron, Aiglun and returning via Col de Bleine and Caussoles.

 

Mountain Biking

Mountain bike can be exercised in the surrounding forests; there are great trails and also very challenging ones with gradients over 20%. Just look at the pictures of the mountains taken from the Top Of The Palm terrasse - there are beautiful trails over there with a magnificent view all over the Riviera.
