Departement of the Alpes de Haute Provence - Pop.: 150 inh.
7 km from Sisteron. Take the D53 for 5 km then turn right to the D553.
Bevons is not a village in the strict sense of the word but rather a collection of houses spread through a peaceful corner of the beautiful Jabron valley.
This is Giono country, the country of shepherds, lavender and the olive tree, etc...
All has been totally preserved here, nature reigns and farmers are still relatively numerous: do not leave without tasting the local specialities, Sisteron lamb and kid goat, almonds, truffles, honey, goat's cheese ...
Right beside Sisteron you will find peacefulness, nature, and all the open air sports, both in summer and winter!
