Former sous-préfecture, and birth place of Auguste Blanqui (a famous revolutionary from the 1830s), Puget-Théniers plays a strategic role at the joining of the Estéron, Roudoule, and Upper and middle Var valleys. Thanks to its location it offers a wide variety of trips in the area because Puget-Théniers is on the boundary with the Alpes de Haute Provence département.
Puget-Théniers brings together the charm of a small business town and the charm of a village which seems to know how to develop without losing its identity.
You'll appreciate this if you visit the ancient
streets where you'll see shops with their signs engraved in stone.
One of the best ways to appreciate the sumptuous landscapes in the area is to take the famous "Train des Pignes" which has its HQ at the Puget-Théniers station. It's an authentic steam train dating from 1909 (well maintained...) with wooden seats in the coaches and open air viewing platforms. The train runs from Digne to Nice, from May to October, through the Nice hinterland the Var and Redoule valleys.
