Natural Feature
“Mont Boron is a hill separating Nice from Villefranche-sur-Mer. There are beautiful villas there, one of which is occupied by Elton John. At the top of the hill stands the monumental Fort du Mont Alban, and the whole hill is the place of family picnics. Mont Boron hill rises to almost 200 m above sea level (191,3) and allows you to see the Old Port of Nice and the city from a completely new perspective. On the other hand, you can see the entire village of Villefranche-sur-Mer and the Cap-Ferrat peninsula. It’s worth seeing this views! The park itself is home to a forest that covers 57 hectares of Mediterranean plants, including olive trees and Alesso pine. Like many parks in the region, it is a “Parc Zéro Pesticide”, meaning that no pesticides are used to by their groundskeepers.”
