Located in southeastern France, Breil-sur-Roya is a small town surrounded by mountains with excellent opportunities for those who like to be outdoors. The Roya River runs through the town and is known for being a popular spot for trout anglers.

We’ve compiled a list of the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in Breil-sur-Roya and the surrounding area, so keep on reading to check out the options.
First up we have a one bedroom chalet which can sleep two, so it is perfect for that romantic getaway. There’s free parking on site, so don’t worry about carrying your heavy luggage. Keep connected during your stay with wireless internet access. And you can even use a jacuzzi and sauna in a private spa chalet for an extra fee. The chalet is located in the town of Sospel, just a 30-minute drive from Breil-sur-Roya. The chalet is situated near the Mercantour National Park, so those who like hiking will be pleased to have trails nearby.
