Carros Village

Carros is a very old commune which has expanded rapidly in the recent past, however this economic expansion has not harmed the charm of the original old village even if its tranquility has suffered a bit.

Carros can today be divided in three :

- Carros-village : old Carros.
- Carros le Neuf : the new town started in 1963.
- the Business park of Carros-Le Broc : 200 hectares with 400 companies and employing 6 500 persons.

Only Carros-village is really interesting for tourists. As the old village is high up it offers wide panoramic views over the Alps and the coast from Villefranche to Antibes.

Don't forget that the sea is less than 20 Km from Carros.
