La Ferrière

 
The departement of the Alpes Maritimes - Valderoure municipality.

Via Grasse, take the N85 for 40km then take the D2 on the right for 25km.

La Ferriere, facades

Located on the marvellous Thorenc plateau, in a beautiful preserved natural site, the small village of La Ferrière conveys a feeling of peacefulness.



Take the rue Principale or the ruelle du Mitan, they will lead you to a café in the shade of plane trees on a small picturesque square.

You will be able to admire a few beautiful old houses, some of which are perfectly well restored and others that are totally neglected, just waiting for some (courageous!) person with a passion for old houses.

La Ferriere, street



To complete the picture there is a sleeping dog, a few cows grazing in a meadow, a roofed wash house, a few beautiful door lintels, some nice terraces where the locals take the air, sometimes even installing their chairs in the street !
