About the The Tinee Valley location

Located in the middle of the Alpes-Maritimes’s Mercantour Park, The Tinee Valley is one of the most charming and picturesque places in the South of France. The villages, mountains, lakes and hillsides of the valley offer vacationers many activities that will make their stay both memorable and enjoyable.
What Tinee Vacances offers its customers is a chance to vacation in a beautiful apartment or home with an authentic French touch! From your vacation home, you can explore the vast opportunities that this area has to offer. Fishing, Hiking, Swimming, Hunting, Canoeing, and a Gastronomy of Provençal Specialties are waiting for you to discover! The apartments, houses and studios we have personally selected are located in quiet (and/or lively!) Niçois villages -- some overlook the Tinee river, while others have a view of the mountains. You, your friends and family, can easily relax into the Tinee Way of Life and quickly feel like one of the Villagers.

About the Tinee Vacances Rental Décors

All of our Rentals are located in 18th or 19th century houses that we have had renovated and insulated. We purposely DO NOT choose new buildings. We renovate the old, so that you get an added charm and historical value during your stay! The Apartments are also beautifully furnished, as we have inspired our Furnishings and Décor choices on Magazines such as “Maison & Décor Méditerranée” and “Coté Sud”. This gives our Rentals an added and unforgettable appeal. What’s more is that at in all of the Rentals we have chosen, you will find aspects of the original house; the original fireplace, cabinet doors, etc… We purposely chose to do this to maintain the buildings authenticity as much as possible.
