Directions to Le Foulon from Nice Airport and Italy

The 34kms from Nice International airport can be done in 35 minutes by a confident driver, but allow 45 if you're not used to driving on twisty roads on the the right-hand side of the road. The border with Italy is little over an hour on the A8 autoroute.

For sat nav users input this address:

Domaine du Foulon
4220 Route de Grasse



1/ As you leave the airport follow BLUE signs for the autoroute A8, direction Cannes.
2/ From the airport you're only on the autoroute for a few kilometres and take the second exit, exit 48 towards Cagnes sur Mer/Vence.

This is where you'll need 70 cents for the privilege of 5 mins on the motorway. If you don't have change to throw in the bucket then go to the right hand booth and pay by card in the machine.
3/ This takes you onto a dual carriageway. Continue straight over the first roundabout and at the second roundabout, with MacDonald's on your left and a Casino supermarket on your right, continue straight on and past the Polygon Riviera Shopping centre on your left. This has some great shops, a casino, cinema with some English language films and a really good choice of restaurants.  
4/ At the next round about turn left/3rd exit direction
Colle sur Loup. After 400m you pass the Leclerc supermarket on the left and one of our nearest petrol stations.
5/ After 400m go straight over a small roundabout and then after another 300m you turn left/2nd exit up the hill on the D436 towards La Colle centre.  
6/ At the top of the hill you turn right towards Colle sur Loup and then a few metres later you come to a SMALL ROUNDABOUT & TAKE THE 2ND EXIT (VIRTUALLY STRAIGHT ON) TOWARDS GRASSE.  
7/ Continue straight on this road out of Colle Sur Loup, down the hill, past LA PINEDES CAMP SITE on your right, and after a total of 2.5kms (1.5miles) TAKE THE RIGHT HAND TURNING TO “PONT DU LOUP, GRÉOLIÈRES & GRÉOLIÈRES LES NEIGES” ON THE D6.  

8/ Continue straight for 10kms (6.2 miles) of twisty scenic road, that follows the course of the river Loup. Watch out for the increasingly tight right handers!

You then suddenly arrive at a CROSSROADS - GO STRAIGHT OVER TOWARDS GRÉOLIÈRES. This junction is just after a small bend and if you miss the warning sign it can come as a surprise, so be careful.


9/ 5.6kms (3.1 miles) THROUGH THE GORGES DU LOUP you come to BRAMAFAN, which consists of a small bridge, a few buildings, and that's about it.
Bare left and continue straight on towards GRÉOLIÈRES.


10/ A further 3.4kms (2.1 miles) the road straightens out just a little bit and on the left is LE FOULON with a sign to the left of the drive.

Continue straight down the drive, ignore the left turn half way down, and you have arrived.
