Gorbio – Guest post from Scribbles and Smiles

Today, I’m happy to add a guest blog to Access Riviera thanks to Scribbles and Smiles.

This post is about Gorbio, a small perched village nearby to Menton.  With so much attention on Menton this past week for the Lemon Festival, it seems fitting to also focus on another wonderful place to visit on the French Riviera.

Gorbio has great views because of its altitude (354 metres above the Mediterranean Sea) and quirky historic points of interest for a small village such as an old elm tree, a fountain that served as a trough for mules, an old communal bread oven and the Chateau Lascaris, built for the Counts of Ventimiglia who were the first lords of Gorbio.
