Isola 2000
The Essential
Of all the major ski resorts in the Southern Alps, Isola 2000 is the nearest to the Côte d'Azur. Set in a beautiful mountainous cirque in the heart of the Parc National du Mercantour, this resort is just 5min from the Italian border, and is an ideal base for hikes to the lakes of Terre Rouge or Mt St-Sauveur. The Sanctuaire de Ste-Anne, a sanctuary on the Lombard Pass - on Italian soil - is well worth a visit.
