Laying on a hillside in south east France, just a couple of kilometres from Grasse is the charming village of Speracedes. This typical Provencal village of pastel-coloured houses featuring lavender-coloured shutters is surrounded by a very Mediterranean landscape of olive trees, and cypresses – ripe for perfect countryside walks. Located on what is known as the Balconies of the Cote d’Azur, climbing to the Speracedes Cross, you’ll be rewarded with splendid views out to the Lerins Islands, Esterel mountains and St Cassian's Lake. Follow up your journey with a sumptuous feast at one of the lovely restaurants in this traditional walled town and enjoy a refreshing glass of local wine, or head to nearby Grasse for even finer dining options. Be sure to taste the local olive oil. Known to many as a village of happy people, Speracedes is a delightful place to visit, and with Nice airport, Antibes and Cannes just 30 minutes away, a perfect place to explore the region.
