In one glance, one can see the blue Maures mountains and the snowy peaks of the Alps.


Montmeyan - Village
The walls give the village an odd look: they seem to be climbing up to assault the castle at the very top ! The church is also at the top, showing off its newly restored 12th c. section.

There is an undeniable charm about this village with its narrow arcades surrounded by ancient houses and the miniscule provençal squares.
