Discover the small village of Montfuron
Montfuron is proud to possess the only windmill in the region which still functions today... don't miss it.
To visit the interior, the keys can be borrowed from the town-hall or the "mairie".
From the windmill, you have a magnificent view over the surrounding countryside, and no less than 6 departments can be seen....
An outside map table and wind guide helps you to orientate yourself and put a name to the mountains and plains that stretch out into the distance!
While walking in Montfuron, you can visit the beautiful stone church and the Saint-Elzéard chapel which dates back to the 12th century and is classified as an historic monument.
Visitors who are interested in fossils will have a great time at Montfuron because it is a rich geological reserve filled with all sorts of fossils (in particular fish fossils of the Smerdis variety).
An excellent pretext to discover the beautiful countryside that surrounds the village.
