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).

La Rochegiron is the starting point for hikes in the 40,000-hectare Montagne de Lure, one of the wildest reserves in Haute Provence, renowned for its lavender and almond fields, beech and fir forests... and numerous signposted trails fragrant with aromatic herbs!

A vous les grandes promenades au soleil, dans un de ces merveilleux paysages provençaux si chers à Jean Giono !
