Millefont Lake

The Lake of Millefont is a beautiful place to take a walk, see nature, relax and take pictures. It's in the pre-alps, about 70 km from the coast of the Cote d'Azur and the city of Nice. You must leave Nice following the river Var, along the N202 road (west side of the city, near the airport). This road is the direct way to the mountains and you can quickly be in mountainous landscape and still see the Mediterranean Sea :).

The Lake of Millefont is a beautiful place to take a walk, see nature, relax and take pictures. It’s in the pre-alps, about 70 km from the coast of the Cote d’Azur and the city of Nice.

Follow the road full north and at the first crossing (after 20 km) go right in the direction Valdeblore (Valley of Tinée) until the little village of Saint Dalmas de Valdeblore. Go through it (but you can also stop there and taste the different local productions like bread, cheese or honey) until the road goes up in straight curves. After a few curves, you see another little road going left with the sign Lac de Millefont. Take it and follow it until the end, and don’t worry if the road becomes less comfortable and if you don’t see the end of it…. You’ll arrive after 15-20 min on a parking place: stop there and put your best walking shoes on! Take your breath and follow the little way climbing in the mountain. After 45-60 min walk you’ll find easily this beautiful lake where you can rest a little bit… If you haven’t enough, there are other lakes a little bit higher… just follow the little pathway.
