IDEAL LOCATION FOR WALKERS

  • 5 of 5
We loved the apartment. Mountain views from front and back. Good hot showers when we arrived back from the walks. We did light the wood burning stove one night as it was a little chilly. We had no problems with parking or noise but I expect it may get a little more exciting in August.
A little sad to say but I did need my internet fix. Used my mobile tethered to my laptop in the apartment no problem but this can get expensive. The Auberge Saint Martin – 150 metres down the road has good wi fi.

WONDERFULLY RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was nice and comfortable. It had everything we needed. La Brigue is an amazing community; all the locals were extremely helpful, even with our very limited French/Italian. All the owners of the restaurants and the market were pleasant and very friendly. The apartment is perfect for those looking for quiet, hiking/nature vacations. It was everything I had hoped for and I would most definitely recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments. La Brigue is indeed a wonderful village - right on the mountain border between France and Italy.

WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The apartment, town and area were all fabulous. The apt is spacious, well laid out, comfortable, well equipped and superbly located. Having the wood burner made even rainy days enjoyable, reading on the fabulously comfortable settee and looking at the view out of the window. There is so much walking in the area, including from the door. The train is a 10 minute walk away and is a great way to get around. The double shower was a bonus - it was powerful with plenty of hot water. La Brigue is lovely with restaurants and small shops for buying supplies. I couldn't fault it and would highly recommend it. I cannot think of one single critisism. I will most definitely book again. Great apartment, great customer service, great location and great price. What more can I say?!

TRÈS AGRÉABLE SÉJOUR

  • 5 of 5
A part le fait qu'il n'y avait pas de draps pour le canapé-lit, l'appartement (4 pers au 2è étage) est super agréable, chaleureux, bien situé. Le bar peut être bruyant, nous sommes arrivés pendant la fête du village mais l'endroit est réellement sympathique, le village exceptionnel, la région fantastique!
Tout ce qui est indiqué sur le site est vrai.
A recommander!

La Brigue is located in the Vallee de la Roya, which runs north from Ventimiglia (45 mins) into the Alps near Tende. Due to its location in an east-west side valley, which follows the course of the River Levense, La Brigue is one of the sunniest villages in the area. It also avoids the traffic on the main road two kilometres away. It nevertheless has a bustling life of its own. La Brigue was Italian until local residents voted in a plebiscite to become French. Street names are Italian and local language and culture are French mixed with Italian.

There is a very nice 'epicerie' opposite Les Alpes d'Azur, run by Cedric and Maryse, which sells just about everything including fresh baguettes and croissants. There is another grocer nearby, an excellent butcher, a post office and several restaurants in La Brigue, including the ever-popular 'Pizzeria Brigasques'.

Other Activities: 4x4; canoeing; canyoning; climbing; fishing; golf; hiking; horse riding; husky snow sleighs; kayaking; petanque/boules; rafting; skiing

Ski: Skiing

There are three starting points for skiing at Limone. By far the best is Limone 1400 - all ski areas, with a good mixed range of runs, can be reached from here. To get there you turn off to the left just after the Col de Tende tunnel – only 25 minutes’ drive from La Brigue. There is plenty of parking but at weekends in high season it’s best to arrive early. There is a good ski school and skis can be hired and stored inexpensively. There are several mountain restaurants and bars.

Limone Piemonte is another 5 minutes’ down on the Italian side. It is a very pretty town, but at times there is only one lift up from the bottom, which can get crowded. However there is a train from La Brigue to Limone Piemonte, should you ever need an alternative to the car.

We like skiing at Limone. It is a popular day visit area for people from Monaco, Nice and Ventimiglia as well as Turin. It is quieter and more ‘local’ than the ‘big name’ Alpine resorts. There is also cross country skiing.
