Well Rolando, this rally always takes place in the Alpes Maritimes and usually stages are situated in the mountains not far from Nice/Menton.
Check the internet for previous rallies and you will get an idea of which area the rally takes place.
Actually this is the part of France where I live during the spring and summer months 8)
