and also Italy in this case...
& other rivers of the southern Alps
In the backcountry of Saint Paul de Vence, Nice or Monaco, are found rivers like l'Esteron, la Vésubie, la Tinée, le Boréon, le Loup or le Var. Even the wonderful Tanaro in Italy is joined within an easy 2 hours drive. All these rivers offer a great sporting chance and wonderful goals of excursions. You will be surprised to see how wild these landscapes look just a few miles away from the touristy zones. La Vésubie for instance runs through the natural park called Mercantour where sheep shepherds are facing problems with wild wolves !
Snowy Alps and rugged hills in the background of the river Tanaro
Picturesque "hanging" villages have fairly narrow streets
An old train station is overlooking the river, while an impressive Trattoria
with spectacular food and soft beds is waiting for you after fishing the cold Tanaro waters...
Enjoy the atmosphere of the little towns under the mountains
We're not really far from the great wine region of Barolo
