Discover the small village of La Rochegiron, near Forcalquier
Between Banon and Saumane, La Rochegiron is a tiny Provencal village set right at the foot of the Lure mountain. A street village with Roman tile roofs, lavender-blue or almond-green shutters, shaded by chestnut trees, quiet and unpretentious.
Nearby, the hamlet of Jonquet boasts just a few fine stone houses and a superb large church with a square bell tower, currently being restored (thanks to funding from the Council of Europe).
A vous les grandes promenades au soleil, dans un de ces merveilleux paysages provençaux si chers à Jean Giono !
