on the slopes of Mont Vial, Revest les Roches seems nondescript when you
just drive through it.
You must park in the terrace car park which doubles as a boules pitch
and viewpoint, and then walk along the narrow streets that will lead you,
once you have gone through some dark and very low covered passageways,
to a long peaceful little square, lined with pretty coloured house fronts.
At your feet is a breathtaking sheer drop, where the finest houses in
the village cling, built from the authentic local stone.They enjoy an
uninterrupted view of the Estéron valley as well as absolute tranquillity,
between the cypress hedges and the Virginia creepers.
As you walk back up, you can admire a 15th century two-storey house with arcades, a beautiful fountain dated 1849 and a baroque church with a square bell tower.
Finally, the more courageous amongst you can put your balancing skills to the test on the Hirondelles suspension bridge that spans the river!
