On the D13 which links the N100 and the N96, between Manosque (15km) and Forcalquier (8km).
The pretty little village of Saint Maime, sheltering under its rocky ridge, is located in the magnificent "pays de Forcalquier".
Sumptuous landscapes surround the village offering a variety of pleasant walks.
The village is also part of the Luberon Regional Park.
From the village square you'll have a superb view of the Luberon range, with in the foreground the neighbouring village of Dauphin (which merits a detour).
You'll discover the real charm of the village by walking down its narrow streets, bathing in the calm atmosphere.
You'll pass by old houses, the Sainte-Maxime churh with its campanile and some beautiful fountains.
Walk up to the top of the ridge and you'll have a spectacular view over the whole of the "pays de Forcalquier".
At the top there is the Sainte-Agathe chapel from the XII° C, go a bit further up to the Medieval castle and you'll find the remains of the ramparts and a tower while still enjoying the wonderful views which surround you.
