magnificent point of view, very nice little village house for 4 people for rent at the foot of the very nice castle

Overlooking a beautiful and atypical village, where you have good legs to walk the streets and labyrinthine streets, the house that offers Bruno and Romain for rent, is just a wonderful little paradise. Arrival in the evening late, we had no problem finding the place and recovering the keys, thanks to the very precise explanations received previously. We appreciated the small attentions of reception and the comfort of the bed. But c awakening, when the shutters open, the magic has worked. In front of us a breathtaking landscape, green mountains and just above us the castle of the village under renovation, whose remains bear the weight of the rich and intense history of this ancient Italy returned to the land of France. br /> All the necessary comfort is on site, a functional kitchen, a shower room where water flows continuously and icing on the cake, outside, a terrace offers a friendly space where we can eat, sunbathe and rest, under the sun or the stars. Thank you very much for this stay where we were able to discover with joy, a welcoming village and enjoy an ideal location close to Nice, Monaco, the mountain and its many beautiful little villages, among other wonders.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
