All information gathered first-hand, since 1995

Officially, Valberg is located half in the commune of Guillaumes, and half in the commune of Péone, a tiny village 8 km northwest.

Valberg is a true ski village, 90 percent abandonded in the summer: there are a few apartments and some surrounding villas occupied for the great mountain air and hiking in the summer.

Transportation Valberg Village and Ski Station

Nice-Valberg Bus

There is a bus between the Nice town and airport to the Valberg ski station. It takes 2 hours (86 km) and costs 1 euro.


The drive from Nice to Valberg is 85 km, about 1 hour 30 minutes.

The route is north on the D6202 (the old N202) from near the airport (direction Digne-les-Bains). North past St Martin-du-Var and Plan-de-Var.
At the junction with the Tinée Valley, stay on the D6202, northwest, via Touet-sur-Var. Just past Touet, turn right onto the D28, Gorges du Cians. It's 22 km north on a good road to Beuil, then left and 7 km to Valberg.

There is an alternate route, up the Tinée Valley to St Sauveur-sur-Tinée, then west past Roubion to Beuil. This is a beautiful drive, but the road is narrow and very twisty, and more likely to be closed some times during the winter.
