Le Broc, street


Le Broc has a number of charming little streets, bordered by ancient stone-built houses where, when spring comes, the flowers on the balconies and window boxes give a pretty charm to the village.


Le Broc is a convivial village which seems to know how to party. In January it's the St Antoine Fête, February brings the olive fête and in November the chestnut Fête takes the honours.
