Saint-André is a small town adjoining Nice. Its territory extends to the neighbouring hills of Rimiez and L’Abadie.
Mairie - 21 bd du 8 mai 1945 - 06730 SAINT-ANDRÉ-DE-LA-ROCHE
Tel.: +33(0)4 93 27 71 00
It is made up of several discreet hamlets nestled in the woods. The Banquière River, a tributary of the Paillon which flows into Baie des Anges, runs through the main centre. There is a project for reopening its once-famous natural grotto. Saint-André-de-la-Roche is nicknamed ‘Lou pais dei babi’ (‘land of toads’, in the local Nissart language) and the call of frogs can be heard on summer evenings.
Sights: oil mills; Saint-André and Saint-Grat chapels; the grotto; Thaon de Revel castle (17th c) on a promontory overlooking the village.
