Hills of our Fathers

Experiencing the authentic mediterranean way of life

You went to Nice but you haven’t seen the hills ?
Well you missed the real deal, the one that remind us that before becoming a resort for an exclusive international clientele, Nice was a farmers country, surrounded by thousands of vegetable gardens, simple farms nestled in olive groves, where traditions and habits punctuated life.

This authenticity is still there, in the vineyards and the olive groves of our hills, in the pictureque streets of our villages.

Bellet wine & olive oil

Experience with us the simple and eternal joys of the south, discover the BELLET WINE, taste our famous OLIVE OIL at the source, enjoy the local GASTRONOMY in a traditional restaurant of COLOMARS, soak up the mediterranean soul in the streets of FALICON and the monuments of CIMIEZ, play PETANQUE with the locals in an olive grove, don’t only see Nice but experience it.

If you’re looking for a walking tour of Old town of Nice, combined with a food tour (that can be customized to include wine tasting), check our tour Nissa la Bella.

A tour made to be customized, for curious travelers who want to discover the real Nice country, away from the tourist clichés.

« It is the memory of Nice, all its memory, made not only of dates and events, although these give the old locals this ironic distance from the vagaries of time, but of sensations, of realities, of substances: the beauty of the earth, gardens, terraces of citrus fruits and olive trees, the smell of the sea mixed with the scent of honeysuckle and mimosa, the oblique flight of gulls, at dusk, above the roofs of tiles, the blending of the suns setting and the raw strength of the South. » – Jen-Marie Le Clézio
