Le Mouton Dort

Hotel in Vallée de la Roya

On the hillside above St-Dalmas-de-Tende, the Sleeping Sheep has seven determinedly old-school rooms: three in the main hotel, two more in an annexe and two stone-vaulted ones in the old chestnut orchard. They're prettily furnished, if unashamedly dated, and several have private terraces. Mountain views, of course, come as standard.
