Sainte Agnès is a tiny little village located high on a ridge above Menton on the Côte d'Azur, only a couple of kilometres as the crow flies from both Italy and the coast.  It is known as the "highest coastal village in Europe" as it sits at just under 800m altitude while being practically on the sea. Owing to its strategic location it has some interesting fortifications including a medieval castle and more recent 20th century defences.  Naturally this all makes it a pretty spectacular place, both to look at and to look out of.
