The little village of Mayons, pleasantly situated in the Maures forest is protected by the venerable Grandfather Chestnut Tree, planted in the Middle Ages.
When you arrive in the village forget about your car and take a walk down one of the numerous paths which start out from the village. This is siliceous Provence, land of pine trees, cork oaks and chestnut tree orchards.
You can climb up to one of the best view points in the area where in a moment you can change your view from the Mediterranean Sea to the Alps.
In Mayons, a number of producers make specialities based on honey and chestnuts to recipes handed down from generation to generation. And don't forget strawberries which are a veritable institution in the village. Eat as much as you like !
