Departement of the Alpes de Haute Provence - Verdon - Pop.: 300 inh.
22 km. north of Castellane through St. André les Alpes.
The two villages La Mure and Argens were united in 1973 and today form one town.
La Mure sets on the banks of the Issole river where it flows into the Verdon, and where the valley widens into green open spaces.
Up until the last century, La Mure was a prospering city, well known for its sheet production.
Unfortunately this no longer exists.
Argens is in the heart of the Maurel mountains on a plateau of over 1400m. There are only 7 permanent residents there at this time !
In order to get to Argens, one takes a little road that follows the Sasse stream through an alpine forest scattered with little springs.
