Wonderful ancient olive tree, supposedly over 1000 years old, on a charming walk from Roquebrune toward Menton, past Coco Chanel's Cote d'Azur home

Get off the road to take a quiet walk on the streets of this quaint village. (Pedestrians only) Very nice view of Monaco, especially in with an evening sunset backdrop. A visit the 2000-odd year old Olive tree is the star attraction.

Worth a look as your walking in the narrow pedestrian streets of this lovely medieval village. It is very tranquil with beautiful ofbuildings and views of the bay of Monaco.

I have been living in Roquebrune for 18 years and still i am not tired of the place and its beautiful spots. The walk to the old village is one of my favourite: not to miss.

No one probably knows how old the tree really is but it certainly looks the part. It's still very much alive and you can climb to hold it and take some photos. It's easy to find (5 min walk from the Chateau de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin) and...More

When in the Vieux Village definitely take the short walk to L'Olivier Millenaire. It's amazing! Just to think it's so old is already impressive, plus it's fascinating to look at and enjoy. Nice to see (and know) it's well taken care of and looked after.

Not far from the old village the tree is dated to be approx 2000 year old something not common for an olive tree. Go there just for curiosity touch it and make a wish. You will also probably take a picture of the view over...More
