Le Bar-sur-Loup, Alpes-Maritimes, France

A semi-fortified medieval village nestling in the steep hills overlooking the Côte d'Azur, Le Bar-sur-Loup is a sleepy place with just a handful of shops and restaurants. From the main square, which boasts some handsome historic buildings and sweeping views, atmospheric stepped alleyways lead down to the Avenue Amiral de Grasse - the main through-route. Although there are some pleasant walks in the vicinity of the village, buses and taxis are rare, so you really need a car or a road bike to explore the locality.
